This soup soothes the soul. It is gently warming yet rich as its packed full of flavour. The butternut squash is naturally quite sweet and naturally sweet foods can feel very comforting indeed.
I thought I would throw this one in just to stir things up! Smoothies, touted by the industry as uber healthy, can be loaded with sugars, just like cordials and soft drinks. I know, I’m hearing you cry, ‘But these are fruit sugars, they must be good for us’ and yes you are right. In fact all natural sugars, had in the correct balance and amount, are generally ok.
Muffins can make a great breakfast for those on the go or who tire of having cereal every morning. You can make these in batches, freeze and then simply defrost the night before and give them a quick reheat in the morning. Desserts and sweet things don't always have to involve loads of sugar and white flour.
