I realise everything has been overtaken by the heat; beauty products, food choices, outfit options, the list is endless. But that's the problem, the weather does affect everything.
So I have renamed this summer, salad season. It is literally all I am eating recently. But we aren't just talking a bit of lettuce and cucumber. I am going a bit experimental with the lettuce leaf. And thanks to the Zest magazine I picked up in the airport, I have plenty of options.
There was a great little article, talking about the best combinations to ensure your salad is healthy, tasting and gives you the energy you need. While I am notorious for eating and enjoying my food, they have some great options which even I am happy with.
And they included a great little pick'n'mix table to help you create the salad of your dreams.
So I used this as inspiration and got crafty with the salad in my fridge. This is what I have come up with over the past few days. Note a distinct love of green beans recently!
