Who ever said you can’t have your cake and eat it?
Of course you can. As you know part of my philosophy is to eat good healthy nutritious food and have a treat. Your body should not be deprived of treats that is not living! That is what I would call living a life of misery and punishing yourself. Eat the healthy foods you love, nourish your body correctly with the right foods and your body won’t crave all the bad stuff.
This delicious healthy treat strawberry & banana cake is super easy to make and will be a real family pleaser. Serve with a dollop of your favourite yoghurt drizzled all over the top if you prefer. I drizzled natural bio yoghurt over mine and it’s a perfect combination with the strawberry and crust and I’m getting some good gut health in.
