Let’s Celebrate Christmas by Melanie Avery provides a guide to creating festive foods for both children and adults. What makes this book unique is:
All the recipes are additive free
Melanie has self-published this book. No easy feat! But she was inspired when her family starting reaping the benefits of going additive free: no more restless nights, mood swings, rashes, belly aches, asthma and the list goes on. Pretty amazing when you think about it and a huge wake-up-call for me, who can see a few of those things in my little man when he eats particular foods.
Now when I read the ‘Let’s Get Serious’ section at the start of the book, I can tell you now, I was horrified with what I read. I started reeling off all these sentences to my husband that started with “Did you know…?” And no, he didn’t know! Here’s a couple for you. And if your mouth does not form an ‘O’ for ‘OMG’ then I will be surprised.
As I came to the recipes I thought, there’s going to be nothing in this but fresh fruit and vegetables. But it’s not like that. It’s realistic and do-able. So much so, that I created this dish: A perfect appetiser for Christmas.
It was delicious, and I was so proud of the fact that I actually knew it was additive free!
This book is more than just recipes though. It also contains decoration tips, craft ideas and some really cute Christmas traditions you can try at home.
