Salads. Am such a fan of fresh (and dressing covered) salads.. especially at this time of year. Colourful and flavoursome, juicy, fresh, satisfying, tasty, moreish beautiful salads.

Good salads are just so delicious and make you feel really good. They also don’t need to be complicated – all you need are a few fresh ingredients, and a yummy dressing (I believe).. a good dressing can really make all the difference.

Sunday afternoon baking….

Some days I have an overwhelming desire to bake. Because my work revolves around food, nutrition and recipes I can’t help but bake cakes that TASTE AMAZING but are also nourishing and make you feel and. I can hear you grinning friends. Yes, don’t worry I do eat (and enjoy) chocolate, regular standard deliciously good cakes and desserts .. so I’m not a complete health nut.

I believe that no food is bad – all food is good, in moderation. I just love the challenge of creating delicous food that is also nutrtionally awesome…

On Sunday I had one of these baking urges… if you also have such baking urges, or just love food that makes you feel really good, I invite you to try it. Your body and soul will love it.
