Co-founder of online fitness program, Keep it Cleaner, Laura Henshaw, along with her bestie, Steph Claire Smith are two women you turn to for inspiration when it comes to living a healthy life. Their core philosophy is everything in moderation and here, Laura Henshaw shares her recipe for homemade gluten-free sausage rolls that’ll give your favourite bakery a run for its money! The best part? They make a healthy balanced meal with no added nasties. Oh and it doesn’t have to be gluten-free, you can use regular puff pastry sheets, and for a dairy-free option, swap out cow’s milk for a milk of your choice.
