Get fruity this winter
Whilst we are all attempting to stick to our New Year’s resolutions to lose those last few pounds and keep them off this winter, it doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in something sweet and tasty when we fancy it.
We all crave a little sweetness in our diet now and again and fruit is an excellent way of getting part of your five a day whilst satisfying our sweet cravings.
Many of us may be suffering from the winter blues at the moment. But for those of us with a nagging sweet tooth, going ‘cold turkey’ does not have to be an option, as it’s possible to balance our taste for sweetness without having to compromise on our healthy lifestyle. The beautiful country of South Africa has some fantastic fruits available this winter, to keep you warm, full and healthy, including plums, peaches, nectarines and grapes.
So for those of us looking to satisfy our hunger pangs, fruit can provide a natural alternative to sugar that satisfies our sweet cravings without being too high in calories.
Here to help us is Sophie Michell, author, chef and presenter of Channel 4’s Cook Yourself Thin, with several great recipe ideas. From delicious roasted brown sugar plums to chargrilled nectarines, there are a variety of sweet fruit recipes that can provide that sugar fix the healthy way.
