Sugar Added Dried Fruit Cake {Special Menu Supporter of Euro 2016 and Rio J.0}

2016 is a highly sporty year! If in France we are used to follow Roland-Garros in May-June and the Tour de France in July, this year will be the Euro 2016 and Rio Olympics! It promises so many evenings and hours to support his favorite team and his banner!

Of course, you will tell me, it depends on the relationship to the sport of each:

– There are the sportsmen who would not miss a match or a competition of their champion, well installed in their armchair with at hand the vital supply necessary for drink and food!
– And there are those who like the unifying enthusiasm of the big competitions but who still love to put on their sneakers and indulge in their regular sport session, just to take this shoot of endorphins exhilarating and energizing!

And at home, your “big” sportsman looks like what? And above all, what does it feed on?
pour qu’il ait toute l’énergie nécessaire pour suivre ce programme de compétitions à rallonge. Whether he belongs to the 1st or 2nd category, I have reserved for him a special Golden Supporter menu so that he has all the energy necessary to follow this program of extended competitions.
Juste avant les vacances et le maillot ça serait quand même dommage, non ? Knowing me, you can imagine that these are greedy and energizing AND healthy recipes – because we will have to take over all these long weeks of competition without taking 5 kilos due to crisps, beers and pizzas! … Just before the holidays and the jersey it would still be a pity, right?

And a few days before the launch of the Euro, I offer him a cake with dried fruits without added sugars other than the sugar of the fruits themselves!
