If you need a showstopper of cake for Easter, look no further. I’ll be honest, I was nervous about this one. I’ve been burnt by more than one “beetroot chocolate cake” before, as all of the attendants of my son’s 5th Birthday party will attest to.
I used to be so intimidated by gluten free baking. It really used to be the case that every gluten free bread recipe you would find would have strange ingredients (xanthum gum) or tonnes and tonnes of oil and sweetener.

There are a variety of different reasons we end up in a state of health that is less than optimum. Low energy, excess weight, unexplained aches and pains, unhealthy habits and a lack of direction are all a result of some form of disconnect between what is going on on the inside and what is going on on the outside. And a lot of the time it can be as a result of us simply not stopping for a moment and reconnecting with ourselves, in a loving way, rather than the reflex reaction of chastising ourselves for why ever it is that we think we are feeling (or looking) poorly.
