Pumpkin Loaf with Pecans & Chai Soaked Prunes

Winter is a struggle for me and I'm sure I'm not the only one. The miserable weather, the dark mornings and nights, the lack of sunshine - and the list goes on. Eating nutritious food becomes a struggle too because no longer do I feel like smoothies and salads even though I know my body thrives of fresh and light food.

Spinach and Zucchini Loaf

This loaf is so versatile I have been known to consume it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as a snack (not all in the one day of course!). It freezes perfectly and can go straight into the toaster for a quick go to nutrient hit. The almonds are full of healthy fat and vitamin E, the oats help to stabilise blood sugar and calm the nervous system and the psyllium husk although mainly used as a binding agent here, can help to regulate the bowels.
