Every year around Christmas time, my husband enjoys a few Gingerbread Cookies. I’ve been meaning to try and make him some for a few years now. This year is finally the year!
Make your life easier in the lead up with these wholefood Christmas recipe ideas!
Not sure what it is about December but as soon as it hits, the panic sets in!
I always feel like I have more time than I do to get things organised and it freaks me out when I realise I don’t! How about you?
One year, I’d love to go away for all of December and January and just skip it. Bask on a beach maybe?
As you can imagine, I haven’t been adding to the stress by trying to create new treats – the imagination is still running wild with new options I want to try, but I’m being kind to myself.
So I thought I would leave you with a few suggestions on nibbles and sweets from my past recipe pursuits, that may work for our hot weather Christmas recipe ideas and keep everyone healthy at the same time.
And even better, at the end of my list, Sonia from Natural New Age Mum has compiled a fantastic resource of Christmas wholefood recipes from other healthy writers – lots of great Christmas recipe ideas there. Totally saved me the work and more stress! Cheers Sonia!

Christmas is coming! And the best news is, all your favourite dishes can be made in a healthy way without sacrificing the sensational flavours. Here’s the decadent Healthy White Christmas Slice.
I have tasted the traditional White Christmas slice in the past and while it looked fantastic, one piece and I had an immediate headache and felt instantly tired. Not to mention wanting to eat the whole batch despite the pain!
So I whipped up a Slim Birdy original and oh my, tastes like the most amazing white chocolate without the hangover! Add this one to your Christmas cooking list.
