Ed­i­ble fes­tive gifts

IT CAN BE A SEA­SON OF OVERINDUL­GENCE, BUT NOT SO WITH THESE HEALTHY AND DE­LI­CIOUS GIFTS

Good Health (Australia) - - Content - Christina Leon runs the health and life­style on­line com­mu­nity Re­veal Your­self.

Christ­mas is one of my favourite times of the year. I love dec­o­rat­ing the tree, wrap­ping presents, lis­ten­ing to Christ­mas mu­sic and es­pe­cially Christ­mas bak­ing. I have fond mem­o­ries as a child of be­ing in the kitchen with my mum mak­ing Christ­mas cook­ies, pack­ag­ing them up with beau­ti­ful fes­tive rib­bons and drop­ping them off as gifts.

Now I love to fol­low this same tra­di­tion with my daugh­ter. A few weeks out from Christ­mas we spend a day bak­ing in the kitchen. We have Michael Bublé play­ing in the back­ground while we cre­ate our favourite Christ­mas recipes such as my choco­late berry bliss balls, Christ­mas gra­nola, and gin­ger and cin­na­mon cook­ies.

Each recipe is made with healthy in­gre­di­ents and packed full of fes­tive flavours and spices. Once our de­li­cious treats are made we place them in jars or gift bags; we make sure we dec­o­rate them with beau­ti­ful Christ­mas bows, and in­clude hand-writ­ten cards. There is some­thing so spe­cial about re­ceiv­ing de­li­cious home­made treats.

Merry Christ­mas ev­ery­one!
