Raw Christmas TreatiesJust because it’s Christmas it doesn’t mean you have to eat loads of sugar and processed foods.  Loving yourself this Christmas means looking after your body and feeling great when you wake up on Boxing Day. Who needs to go to bed with a stomach ache from over indulging in festive food that makes you feel toxic.

You wouldn’t believe it but these treats are raw, with no dairy, sugar, wheat or gluten and so easy to make within 10 minutes they are in the fridge. Enjoy your family and fun times but take care of your body at the same time. Eat well and stay hydrated.
