Nuts are good for you. I’ve always known it, I’m a real almond aficionado and the reassuring thing is that they have recently found (those researchers… they can’t make up their mind can they? About what’s good, what’s bad, what’s calorific and even how many calories things contain) that almonds have fewer calories than your nutrition app shows. And pistachios have fewer calories than almonds!
Limes are good for you. Admittedly, perhaps not if they constitute a mojito or daiquiri. Lime juice brings out the flavour of other ingredients, contains unique flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties and best of all they have anti-bacterial qualities. Mix it with honey, and there’s your quite effective cold-fighting cordial.
Dried apricots are good for you. They are a rich source of dietary fibre, potassium and iron and of course they work miracles if your digestion is on a sluggish side.
So there we have it – health in a loaf tin. Well okay – there is a bit of sugar and flour added, plus a generous amount of butter (but that’s not as bad as we used to think), so perhaps don’t go for it as part of your detox diet, but it is awfully, awfully tasty. The topping especially delishhh.
The recipe was found in The Times on a Saturday but regrettably I forget the author.
