Healthy Snacks; Grain free and full of healthy fats

Healthy Snacks Loula Natural 1

Healthy Snacks

Lunch boxes, after school, before dinner, pre/post work outs, 11′s, with a cup of tea/coffee, sugar slump at 3/4, friends over, picnics, or just because- snacks are in our lives. I used to snack badly. I would generally get so hungry I would be grabbing for something, normally high in carbs and low in fat.

Over the last few years I have completely reversed my attitude to fats (see my posts here and here) and grains. My body has had a huge amount of healing and shape changing to go through to compensate for the years of bad choices and bad information I have been subjecting it to.

Pumpkin Pie Water Kefir

Pumpkin Pie Water Kefir Loula Natural fb

I started making this recipe last year when it went into Culture Your Life. I looooove pumpkin season! Check out all my favourite recipes for pumpkin here

This recipe is simple and you can use canned pumpkin or make your own very easily (and cheaper!). That way you have complete control over how much sugar you add as in the canning process the pumpkin is heated again thus caramelizing the sugar. 

Make your water Kefir as here then have fun flavouring it whilst the pumpkins are around! Fun to make cocktails with too for family gatherings. I make standard Gin and Tonics much more fun, adding this water kefir recipe!
