Mango muffins was the first bake I attempted when baby Number 1 came along.  Some people LOVE baking.  There are thousands of books about baking; 9 out of 10 people would probably prefer dessert to an entrée; The Great British Bake Off is possibly the most popular reality show on TV.  I, however, do not like baking!  It requires precision, and I much prefer winging it. However, the ingredients found in most store bought muffins, pastries, cookies and cakes are – let’s face it – appalling.  They’re filled with processed flours, sugar, additives, preservatives, industrial oils, E-Numbers, etc.  These ingredients aren’t good for anyone, especially tiny digestive tracts, but for some people it’s the only lifestyle they now know. Suggesting to a Baby Boomer to avoid the packaged products sitting on their supermarket shelf is like throwing sand in the wind. Gens X & Y have been pretty well scuppered by food and marketing also.  But our babies – they have hope!  People are becoming more educated about food and more aware of choices we need to make to live a healthy life. It’s my absolute passion to help people understand good food choices. Our babies – they don’t have the choice yet, so as a parent, it’s my responsibility to make the healthiest choice I can – for them! So, I made myself find the patience and precision for baking, and with that I can feel good about my girls enjoying a clean, sweet treat.
