Hi there, Happy New Year! It's business as usual here on my site, but please note that the pandemic is still causing disruptions with Royal Mail, so you order might take longer to arrive, and apologies if you are still waiting for your parcel... in some areas they are taking up to a month to arrive. Please also note that I am not currently sending orders outside of the UK due to postal disruptions. I hope to do so again in a few weeks. I will have more joggers coming back into stock in 1-2 weeks. Thank you and keep safe, Lucy x

Super healthy summer salad!

This salad could not be healthier, or easier! Not only really delicious but also low fat, gluten free & vegan! All the ingredients are alkaline and carefully selected for their health boosting properties.
Cucumber: high alkaline and help to regulate blood pressure. Can ease bloating or swelling. Also antioxidants and hight in B vitamins.
Watermelon: an excellent alkaline forming food. High fibre and water content. Rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene, and magnesium and potassium which help reduce blood pressure. 
Avocado: helps balance pH, contains antioxidants and plenty of potassium too. 
Broccoli - an amazing all round healthy veg! Helps reduce inflammation in the body, improve blood sugar control, boost immunity, fight against cancer, support healthy brain function & promoting heart health
Quinoa - gluten free, high in protein, fibre, magnesium, b vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, vitamin e and anti-oxidants!
I eat this salad and feel so good afterwards! My digestive system feels very settled and I have lots of energy too!
Quinoa (I prefer the uncooked stuff you cook yourself) -- cook a cup per person, according to the instructions. I add a bit of salt and a dash of olive oil to mine
Brocolli - half, cooked and chopped into small chunks
Cucumber - 1/4, chopped into small chunks
1 x mango, chopped into small chunks
1 x ripe avocado, chopped into small chunks
A few slices of watermelon, chopped into small chunks
Chives - handful, chopped
Coriander - handful, chopped
Mint - handful, chopped
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
What you do: 
Add the cucumber, mango and watermelon chunks to the cooled cooked quinoa and mix. Add the herbs and a good amount of seasoning (I find quinoa needs quite alot of salt!) and a dash of olive oil (you could try basil or garlic flavoured too for extra flavour), and ENJOY!
-- for extra flavour try adding feta (if you are not vegan!)
-- for extra protein try adding cooked soya beans
