Christmas cooking

This post is part of the monthly link up party Our Growing Edge. This event aims to connect food bloggers and inspire us to try new things. This month is hosted by Rebecca from The Economic Foodie.


It started with some gluten-free brownies..


Made only with goodness – dark chocolate was melted with coconut oil and combined with sweet coconut sugar..

Then some chopped pistachios and raspberries were added to the mix..


The recipe was by Madeleine Shaw.

I did Christmas day the Deliciously Ella way, roasting sprouts and sprinkling with pomegranates and hazelnuts, and drizzling with maple syrup.


Followed by some stuffed mushrooms..


I’ve been experimenting with my diet a lot recently, from veganism to vegetarian, and generally settling at pescatarian.

My Mum had spent hours roasting a turkey and I was faced with the familiar question of: should I eat what feels right in the moment or stick to the rules of a diet? 

I chose to go with the flow, have a slice of turkey and enjoy my Christmas dinner.

I’m still finding the diet that works for me and I think that’s okay!

  1. I think it’s important to allow yourself some indulgences over Christmas. There’s no use being dieting if you can’t take any pleasure in food. It becomes a misery.

    Your brussels sprouts look amazing. Very festive.

    This post would make a great addition to Our Growing Edge, a link up just for new food adventures. It’s a fun way to share your new food experiences and flavours with other foodies. This month’s theme is FESTIVE FEEDS.
