Surviving the festive season- part 1
Advent calendars are being whipped out all over the country and people are preparing for the onslaught of the “festive season”. The festive season is a dangerous time when it comes to letting your guard down and the loosening up of healthy habits. There are parties, dinners, baking, the stressful rushing around, less activity due to the cold and those lovely Xmas treats everywhere.

Don't feel like a salad in the cold?

Over the last few weeks, the temperature has definitely dropped here! Last Saturday morning, I spent a cold half hour scraping ice from my car windows. Yes, winter is here.
A lot of my clients are finding the cold weather a bit challenging when it comes to sticking to lunchtime salads. It’s true that when it’s cold, sometimes a salad doesn’t quiet “cut it”. It’s important to keep eating those vegetables though! You could try soup, (which I have nearly every day for lunch in this weather),or go for a warm salad.
There are lots of really lovely warm salad recipes around. I think it’s much more fun to invent your own.

I seem to have gathered quite a collection of cans of chickpeas. The only reason I can imagine is that I must have been going through a strange “prepper” phase. I do love chickpeas, though, so I’d say the truth is that I just said “oh, I could use these” and popped a tin in the cart each time I have been shopping. No problem, finding things to do with chickpeas is fine with me!
So, chickpea brownies? hummus? Curry? Not this time.
