THE HEALTH & BEAUTY BENEFITS

We need all these nutrients during the Summer, because they protect us from free radicals caused by higher sun exposure. If we don’t stop these radicals they can cause wrinkles and skin cancer, also making us age very quickly.

This salad can boost your immune system and prevent inflammation.

Carrots, beside being good for your eyes are also a way of making your teeth clear when you chew them. Because they contain lots of beta – carotene, they give your skin a nice orange glow.

The foods included in this salad cause anti – inflammatory, that will make you feel great and beautiful.

Sundayzzz

“This is your Sunday reminder that you can handle anything that gets thrown at you this week”

I drove back to Bournemouth on this sunny Sunday to go straight over to my friends accommodation and make a roast. What a great way to end a weekend and to prepare for a week of stress before our exam on Friday. Nothing beats a home cooked roasts, especially by my friend Tia the domestic goddess.

BLT Salad Bowl

“Skip the diet and just eat healthy”

This is a scrumptious recipe which is simple  and tasty. It is a healthy version of a BLT sandwich that includes bacon, lettuce and tomatoes but will a cheesier, sweeter taste.

THE INGREDIENTS

  • 2 rashes ofBacon
  • Lettuce (I just used enough to fill the bowl)
  • Handful of Cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • 2 tsp of feta cheese
  • 1/4 of a cucumber
  • Handful of coriander

Top tip: Try and cook the bacon until it is nice and crispy. While the bacon is cooking, chop up all the ingredients and throw it into a bowl, followed by the bacon on top. 

I added balsamic glaze on top and a table spoon of balsamic vinegar to finish it off. I also chopped 1/4 of a lemon and placed it on the side which I squeezed on top as I begun to eat, to add a bitter taste into the mix and spice it up a bit.

How simple and delicious, happy eating!
