Beating the Winter Blues with Healthy Biscuits
11 August 2015
Each year there’s a day I call ‘winter breaking point’. It’s when the people in town just can’t take it anymore. The brave faces and weather small talk are no longer and most don’t even bother to look up. It comes after a couple of semi sunny days, which fills everyone with hope for spring, only to be thrown back into the greyness.
This breaking point is when I try and snap out of comfort eating. It is hard. Especially when you feel like you’re facing eternal darkness. But my current carb intake isn’t sustainable.
I start looking for healthier options to biscuits, cakes and straight up creamed butter and sugar.
You can have these biscuits with or without choc chips. I like them with, let’s not go overboard with the health kick thing.
CHOC-NANA AND SESAME BISCUITS
