Here's a fantastic recipe for black bean brownies from my favourites Hemsley and Hemsley ... they might not be everyone's cup of tea but I'll bet they go well with one! Give them a try - you'll be surprised at how amazing they taste.
We're all about POSITIVE EATING here at the Albany Street Clinic. Eating well is much more about adding in the good stuff than taking out the bad stuff (with the exception of sugar). There is so much that can be done to improve your nutritional intake and the results are a more robust immune system, more energy, weight loss, better skin & hair, balanced hormones (that goes for men and women) and balanced blood sugar levels. Cutting back on sugar is one of the best things you can do for your body - come in and chat to us about making it easy.
