12 Healthy Days Before CHRISTMAS!
For the next 12 days I am going to be blogging various tips and ideas to make your Christmas healthier! So, get ready and lets dig in!
DAY 12: Safe food colorings and sprinkles for all your holiday baking!
One thing that we all want to do is keep our kids and selves free from artificial food coloring as they have many adverse effects on the body. (For more information on food coloring read the following article it is a great overview www.iatp.org/files/421_2_105204.pdf)
Tips to avoid these coloring over the holidays: At your neighborhood co-op you can find India Tree brand or online at Amazon.com or Indiatree.com (click on natures colors). Not only do they have colors but they have colored sugars and sprinkles that are colored by food not synthetics!
So, roll up your sleeves and get those little bakers ready to go to work in the kitchen! Tomorrow will be a recipe on GF Gingerbread boys and girls with a yummy dairy free cream cheese frosting!
