With so many over-processed temptations available at Christmas, it's all too easy for our systems to become clogged up with artificial nasties. As Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, editor of foodsmatter.com
, says, "There's nothing wrong with gluten, wheat and dairy, but people eat far too much of it in too many over-processed forms!"
It's bad for our health and wellbeing; so to redress the balance Michelle recommends choosing 'free from' alternatives for traditional Christmas recipes.
"When it comes to stuffings, don't think breadcrumbs, think quinoa or rice cooked as a pilaff with vegetables, nuts and herbs," Michelle says. "If you are worried it will fall apart, bind it with an egg."
