Apple Pecan Spelt Pastry Pies

Many of us will be busy with showing our love and appreciation towards our other halves this month, and I thought what better time to also focus on our own personal self-love. Adding some self love in the form of good nutrition, like with these Apple Pecan Spelt Pastry Pies, can not only make our bodies happy, they also make us feel good.
 
Many of us tend to forget that we ourselves deserve endless amounts of self-love, to feel connected, to be grateful and to feel happy and alive. When you’re sending positive beautiful loving energy to your self, magic happens. And when you’re feeling down or sad, it’s amazing how quickly a little self love and correct thinking can change your whole attitude and mood.

Cinnamon Spiced Muffin Cookies

Recipes (1)As I write this post, I’m finishing off a cup of delicious hot cinnamon spiced tea, that I have recently fallen in love with. I picked some up from The Hollow, Nelson and it’s this tea blend that I used in these cinnamon spiced muffin cookies. The tea has a very strong aroma of cinnamon, spices and cloves. I love this tea for a treat, as it is naturally very sweet, however I’ve found that the cinnamon sorts out any blood sugar fluctuations. Once a pot of this is brewing, you can’t resist scoffing on some sort of delicious treat, and that’s where these ‘muffin cookies’ shine! Continue reading

Chewy Granola Bars

Granola Bars! Best! Things! Ever! For me, being a Type 1 Diabetic, my sugar levels can sometimes go haywire. There are SO many things that can affect sugar levels. Hormones, periods, exercise (or lack thereof), coffee, insufficient sleep, out of routine meals, stress, and the list goes on and on. Through ups and downs, it can be a real roller coaster. The joys of Type 1!!! For me, sugar lows are the worst, and the scariest as they can drop so low so quickly, and that’s when you need something like these delicious chewy granola bars to pick them back up, and sustain your levels, without causing them to spike.

Fudgy Date Balls

Healthy living can be really easy, if you learn to plan ahead. An important factor in a healthy clean diet is meal planning. You should be having 5-6 meals in a day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner (medium sized servings of each, dinner being the lightest), and healthy snacks in between.

Why? In order to have balanced sugar levels, without any spikes and surges, low-GI healthy clean meals and healthy snacks help to keep your sugar and energy levels plateaued throughout the day.
