This reading for wellness post comes to us from Kris Osborne, writer of our Snack Attack series.
We’ve all been there: cookie and eggnog season rolls around and keeping up with our gluten-free (by choice) lifestyle becomes more daunting than usual.
We find ourselves torn between honouring our commitments to healthy eating or giving in and suffering through the inevitable blahs that come from getting knee-deep with the fruitcake.
Fortunately, Leanne Vogel shows us how we can stay healthy and indulge! Poised to become the Canadian mother of allergen-free eating, Leanne is a holistic nutritionist who has overcome her own food demons.
Her approach to eating now focuses on freedom: freedom from guilt, freedom from discomfort and pain, and freedom from the ups and downs that can accompany our challenging relationships with food. But perhaps even more importantly, Leanne focuses on the freedom to: to feel and look vibrant, to enjoy life, to have optimal health, to eat what you want, and our favourite, still eat dessert.
With Christmas Dessert Freedom, she transforms old Christmas favourites like gingersnaps, maple shortbread, peppermint pie patties, and sugar cookies into healthy egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, and grain-free versions that are rich-tasting, health-promoting, straightforward to make, and downright delicious.
If you want to end your holiday helplessness and bake some bliss into your Christmas, this is the book for you. You’ll have your cake and eat it too.
