November is almost over! In fact the whole year is almost over! Can’t believe how fast this year went! Well, time does fly, but while it’s running, it’s ours to decide what to do with. Since it is almost the end of year, and some are working out their resolutions, and since lately, I have been discussing a lot of health and food related health issues with you guys, I am hoping that incorporating home cooked food, healthy eating, a little more active lifestyle and regular check ups are going to make it to your New Year’s Resolutions.
This November I set out with a project aiming to raise Diabetes awareness. I wanted you to learn more about it, how to prevent it and even how to cook for it. This month, I have dedicated all my cooking classes, demonstrations, school presentations, and even this space right here to the healthy eating discussions, to include food related health issues focusing specifically on Diabetes. I hope that the objective behind this initiative has been achieved, and that you guys are inspired to get back on track with leading a healthy lifestyle. All anyone can do for you is to bring all of this to your attention, but then it is yours to work with.
To conclude I am posting this delicious traditional Moroccan cookies recipe ‘Arn Il Ghazelle‘. Everyone likes a piece of dessert with tea, and these sesame crusted almond cookies are nutty, sweet, aromatic and simply irresistible healthy cookies (provided you are not allergic to nuts). These cookies are lower on carbs and do not contain any gluten or wheat. They can be made with sugar substitutes for diabetic patients. They are very easy to make, and fast too, so if you do not have lots of time to spend in the kitchen, these cookies are your best friend. Pack some for a snack at the office, have them with tea: a delight anytime!
Serve these cookies with Moroccan green tea (recipe on this link), and you will be serving a traditional Moroccan tea service. An excellent way to end a Moroccan themed dinner too :))
