First snowfall of the season calls for soft gingerbread cookies, sweetened with honey 🍯
Often when you see honey listed as an ingredient on packaged products, it isn’t real honey. It’s mixed with something else, has added sugar, or is so highly processed that all of its benefits disappear.
Ways to avoid this: cook at home, contact the company, or limit your use of the product. #knowyourfood 🍪

I found the recipe on her app, which I highly recommend 💕
This bowl of pasta is creamy, rich, yet doesn’t make you feel *blah* afterwards. If you aren’t familiar with tahini, it’s just ground sesame seeds - good source of iron, zinc, and copper.
