INDIGO HERBS REVIEW AND EXCLUSIVE RECIPES

As you are probably well aware by now I live in the middle of bumfluff nowhere. A worn down town that lived its hay days during the height of the slipper industry. That being said it means I am surrounded by beautiful countryside, countless reservoirs and open fells. It is pretty easy to lead a healthy lifestyle here. We always walk to do our Tesco shop, which is six miles. There are amazing places to go bike riding along with stunning walks. Having all those joys does not come without…

This is by far the most easiest and tastiest summer salad you could make. I spend all summer eating and making salads and I am sick of the same old leafy base. Its boring.

I also forget how good chickpeas actually are for you. They contain super amounts of protein and fibre. So I thought a chickpea tomato and feta…

Recently my partner and I has invested in some bikes, as there is nothing I love more on a nice summers day than a quiet bike ride in the country along with  picnic.

CHILI LIME GINGER SALMON RECIPE

I love a fish dish as you well know from my pan fried sea bass. I think its perfect for a light lunch and dinner, and we do not have to go on about the health benefits of fish or salmon.

I decided to try and make a lovely Asian styled chili lime ginger salmon. I cheated and used  Tilda steamed brown…
