Lemon and Almond Cake

Lemon and Almond Cake 

Serves approx. 10 ~ Wheat-free and grain-free

I used to absolutely love Lemon Drizzle cake, and this zingy, light and moist cake is the healthier alternative that I came up with to satisfy my cravings. The lemon and almond cake is made with coconut sugar, an unrefined form of sugar that is much higher in nutrients, such as magnesium, zinc and iron, than regular sugar. I’ve also used ground almonds instead of flour, which gives it a texture similar to that of polenta, but is completely grain and gluten-free.

I love to serve it with this a sweet lemon-infused yoghurt and fresh raspberries.

Enjoy!

The Importance Of Relaxation


The Importance Of Relaxation

As more and more of us are working longer hours and continuously plugged in, we’re all taking less time to relax.

According to the Labour Force Survey, the total number of working days lost in the UK due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2014/15 was 9.9 million days. In 2014/15 stress also accounted for 35% of all work-related ill health cases and 43% of all working days lost due to stress induced sickness.

Unsurprisingly, stress and anxiety can leave us with a whole host of physical issues including sleep and digestion disorders, at more extream levels adrenal fatigue, burnout, stress-induced depression and at it’s most severe a breakdown.

Taking us in the right direction is Delicious Alchemy with their range of gluten-free products. For a limited time only and making Christmas just that little bit little sweeter is their gluten-free Christmas Cake that’s dairy and gluten-free.

After being diagnosed as coeliac, the founder Emma Killilea very soon became a little miffed by the lack of natural, tasty and healthy gluten-free food there was on the market. Not one to grumble, she did something about it.

Packing in her job as a computer games producer, she studied food science and marketing at university, and thereafter Delicious Alchemy was born.
