Keep Christmas simple & gluten free + a recipe for you!

Christmas is just days away and I have had one of my busiest fortnights with clients – I’m so pleased that many of you are dialling in your nutrition at this time of year and interested in keeping it clean and natural this Christmas.

To help avoid the sweet treats and carbohydrate rich snacks this festive season, whip up a batch of these Roasted Nuts, which are just perfect for the office Christmas party, Christmas morning, or post-Christmas lunch when the cake, chocolates and cocktails are flowing. Simple, nutrient dense and just four ingredients you already have in your pantry.
