This summer I am challenging myself to experiment with salads. I’m the type of person who is quite happy to have a simple garden salad, no dressing, every day…but I understand not everyone in my family feels the same. So I’m making an effort to make different salads, experiment with flavours, and not stick to my ‘norm’.
It’s also a great way to add more vegetables and fruit to your diet. As well as I eat, I still struggle to eat my daily recommended intake. So here is the first of hopefully a few new salad ideas I’ll share with you.
Previously, I have shared with you what my kids like to eat, and even what they take to school in their lunch box.

Pair it with any meat or fish and Its just in time for the upcoming bbq season. Yes, its just coleslaw, but make it with my paleo mayonnaise and you have a delicious, easy and quick dish that is very versatile.

Most are filled with sugars to make them more palatable or improve the colour. They also can contain thickeners or fillers, that are made from grain based products.

The weather is finally beginning to turn cooler as we head deeper into autumn here. With the weather comes the natural desire for warm and comforting food. Soup is often top of that list.
Everyone has a favourite soup, but possibly the most well know and readily loved is pumpkin soup. Now I know, everyone has there own favourite pumpkin soup recipe, but this one has so much flavour and is all good for you.
