I try to keep a tin of healthy goodies throughout the week, my husband  loves it...

One of my secrets of staying healthy is to replace something I crave with a healthy version of it. Yes, it tastes delicious without refined sugars, flavourings etc. I found this recipe at elanaspantry.com and love it!

Paleo is known as the 'grain-free diet', and the reason for this is that grains contain certain anti-nutrients which prevent their absorption in the gut, and can therefore be harmful to us. I find that many paleo recipes are healthy and nutritious.
