To my thinking a “Treat is not a Treat” unless it is Healthy. This is a favourite of mine Diabetic and Digestive Friendly Banana Cake that is also Gluten and Dairy Free.
You are worth more than eating foods or drinking drinks that will cause harm to you and your body. Enjoy this healthy treat!

Well here is a Great recipe for you, that includes the spice sumac & cinnamon to help balance sugar levels, turmeric your wonder anti oxidant, anti inflammatory spice:

The way to a Healthier and Happier you lies in the Foods that you EAT! I encourage you to eat minimal processed foods, with no artificial flavours, preservatives or chemicals. I encourage you to take the time to read labels, some great rules here to follow is the few added ingredients the better: Secondly, if you can’t pronounce an ingredient, don’t buy the product. Thirdly: Don’t buy products with added salt or sugar. Stay away from McDonalds, Hungry Jacks, KFC and even Subway as these do not support a healthier you in any shape or form. Always to remember that “Fresh is Best”. Eat four to five different coloured vegetables per day and two to three pieces of Fruit. Making food your “Best Friend”, not your “Worst Enemy”.
