Tristen is one of our regular contributors on the Affordable Wholefoods blog sharing inspiring articles and recipes. Here’s what she had to say….
Introducing our newest recipe contributor Nat Russell. Nat is a Naturopathy Student and the creator of her own blog, Glow with Nat Russell. Her recipes are simple, wholesome and nutritious, using wholefoods as the main ingredient. And considering all the raw dessert lovers out there, this one is sure to deliver. Perhaps it might be a good idea to eat it beside the fireplace 😊!
