Holy yum balls! Will you take a look at this beauty! The ever beautiful Tara Bliss brings us this slice of heaven today for Good Food Friday. Tara is no stranger to my site, we love her!
Tara and I are beating the same drum when it comes to food and wellness. She recognises as we move into the cooler months that our foods adjust to support what our bodies require throughout the change in seasons. We are after all, a product of our environment and so with this in mind, we need to remember the tweaks we can adopt to our diet and lifestyle that support our systems. This recipe is perfect for Autumn, incorporating warm cooked fruits and ingredients that our bodies love to digest. For those of us with weaker digestive systems, you might like to adopt the warm, cooked food approach for the most part. In any case, here’s one to add to your weekend meal plan!
