Here we are, the last weekly wrap-up before Christmas. I kind of like this feeling of “before” and “after”. It’s never as strong as in this time of year, with Christmas and New Year’s Eve. It feels like being on the brink of a fresh start. A few days of relaxing and enjoying all the amazing food, before we start a new year, trying to do just that little bit better than this year.

Hello and welcome to the first December deals post! Have you enjoyed some Christmas cookies and treats yet? To be honest, I haven’t (there isn’t a sad emoji sad enough to give back my heartbroken feelings over this). Because I’m trying to be a good girl with candy.

And even though I always thought sugar should make up the biggest food group, it sadly doesn’t. That means when I crave something sweet to improve my mood, I bake. Wholegrain and very little sugar. There are some surprisingly good recipe! Especially if you add dark chocolate chunks 😀 (Nobody said entirely sugar-free!!!)
