I believe that we should eat with a purpose. Now that purpose could be to address a certain concern, or to simply promote long term optimal health, or in fact just for pure, unadulterated enjoyment.

Whatever the reason though there is always a reason.

Now this of course can take an unfortunate turn & become a means of cruelty & control, however in this instance I will not go into this in more detail except to say that if you suspect such a sway in yourself or a loved one then seek help. I am more than happy to advise here so please do be in touch if you need.

Back to today however & my purpose of this post is to delight in dessert because there is definitely space within a bountifully nutritious diet for a little slice of cake every now & again.

As you can see all of the ingredients are very much in their original states, I am relying on their natural flavours & textures, & my goodness it tastes pretty good for it.
