Phyto fruit loaf

As I have already said, my mum’s on a health quest, and she is also tackling menopause at the same time (FUN) so she has found this diet where you need to eat lots of phyto products as this evens out the estrogen and eases menopausal symptoms or something like that.

I’m not denying that at first it may look slightly gross, but it’s actually delicious!

Anyway this recipe makes a surprisingly delicious and healthy spiced fruit loaf that is also vegan and wheat free!
