I am taking part in the #52LittleThings challenge with AXA PPP healthcare to make small changes in my lifestyle, one week at a time to become a healthier and happier person.
This week it’s all about enjoying a healthy bonfire night..
Super that sounds right up our street!
This year with fund a little tight and with only one option for us to attend a public bonfire and fireworks event, this year we have called it quits. It seems that where we live we are surrounded by folks that have their own bonfire and fireworks events so we have decided to be cheap and watch theirs! …
Now obviously that in itself would be boring and somewhat stingy so we have decided we are going to look at putting on a feast, well some nice food anyway and so it was time to get my thinking cap on.
Most of my regular readers will already know that I am no that I am no top chef so trawled the internet for some inspiration and wanting to curb our intake of bonfire toffee, toffee apples and burgers this article Healthier Bonfire Night Party Food made for interesting reading.
It also seems it’s not such a daunting prospect as I first thought either!
Soup! .. first off my Bonfire Night menu will certainly be having soup! .. and with some culinary prowess from my husband (clap it doesn’t happen too often, but when it does its worth its weight) He has cooked up a real treat to combine our Halloween and Bonfire night into one with an almighty tasty spiced pumpkin soup which is fab as we have frozen it till we need it! and I am going to try making some lovely snacks such as sliced apple or sweep potato crisps too.
So this year unlike last we are cutting out the rubbish, the candyfloss, burgers, hotdogs, toffee apples and doughnuts in favour of trying out the healthy options …
Are there any traditional foods you cook/eat for Bonfire Night? if you are looking for some healthy choices I have been pinning ideas to a pintrest board so feel free to take a look.
