Why I Started the day with a smile. Mince pies, pears, strawberries and grapes #roadtochristmas

In Everyday adventures, Food, road to christmas by Colin Chambers0 Comments


Today was one of those super busy change your plans at the last minute kind of mornings so this is one trick I use to make a celebration of it.

The mince pies need toning down and the fruit often needs sweetening.

The mince pies are clearly indulgent and the fruit is clearly healthy.

Together they make gorgeous flavour and texture combinations. No heavy sauce needed, it’s cheap and easy to get for a shop and seasonal so I vary it all the time to suit my mood.

Best of all because it’s part of a normal meal and not extra food it’s free in terms of calories so it’s all pleasure and no pain.

So how are you going to celebrate Christmas today?
