Gluten free plum tart recipe
"Cake is always a good idea and with these fruit cakes with red plums you make it an even better option."
Gluten free plum tart recipe, this easy cake recipe is perfect to make when people are coming over to have coffee with pastry. Cake is always a good idea and with these fruit cakes with red plums you make it an even better option. Because this is a gluten free recipe which also is lactose free it is perfect to serve also to people who suffer from celiac disease or lactose intolerance. Besides that these tarts are also free from refined sugars so definitely a healthy option.
I am in a very nice flow at the moment and that makes it possible for me to create delicious recipes, but also to inspire you more to live and eat more healthy. I notice more and more that not everybody has the same opinion about food and especially healthy food. Personally I like it to eat what feels best for my body, to really nurture it instead of filling it. That results in making conscious choices when it comes to food, I limit my refined sugars intake and barely eat meat. Since recently I also pay attention to gluten, because they bother me sometimes as well. All of that are conscious choices that I make which give me a better feeling and make me enjoy my food even more. Just like reading the 'tight belly bible' by Oscar Helm does. He writes about intermittent fasting which is really interesting and that has helped me a lot to consciously choose my moments when I eat and not put everything in my mouth during the day. I fast now for 2 mornings per week and I notice I enjoy my breakfast much more on the days that I do eat my breakfast. I also limit my snacks, because as Oscar writes, your body can't burn your fat if it keeps on getting food in that also needs to be processed. That sounds really logical, but I was always hungry, but was I really?! I did believe that, but when I look back now I honestly think that that was the case, because I was always eating and my body got used to that. So since we returned from our holiday in Spain I didn't take any snacks with me anymore to my job. The first days I did take a banana, if I still would be very hungry, which didn't happen.
It works out really well, first I always had a snack at 10.00 and 15.30 I don't do that anymore and I am also not hungry anymore in between my meals. I have breakfast at 6.30 (on the days that I do have my breakfast), at noon I will have my lunch and depending on the time I arrive home from work I am having my dinner between 18.00 and 19.00. By choosing fats, fibers and proteins in every meal I also notice that I am full for a longer period of time and less hungry. That helps me a lot, it gives me more energy and my belly is getting more tight and flat which is an advantage anyway haha.
I am not prohibiting myself anything and not imposing myself anything as well and it makes me feel good. And sometimes I do take a slice of banana bread with me or I have some (healthy or unhealthy) cake in the weekend. But I make all those choices consciously. Funny because a colleague of mine said to me this week "actually there are a lot of things that you don't eat right?!" Meat (because it gives me a better feeling when I don't eat it), fish (because I really don't like the flavor) and sugar (because that is just really bad for your body). Yes there are certain things that I don't eat or eat less, but it does give me a good feeling by doing that and it doesn't limit or block me in anyway. Funny how your mindset can change in that area, because I always look at what I do eat and want to eat and never really look at things that I don't eat. So that was an interesting insight for me at that moment.
This recipe for example is super healthy, gluten free, lactose free, free from refined sugars and with fruit. And definitely tastes just as good as a less healthy tart. That makes me super happy!
