I love salads, but I will admit, sometimes I’m left wanting more substance to my meal. Which is why I am head-over-heals for this hearty Falafel Salad! This salad combines the best of both worlds: heaps of vegetables, piles of healthy Mediterranean flavours, and perfectly cooked crunchy falafels that are so satisfying!

Hot weather makes me crave Mexican food. I’ve only been to Mexico once, so I can’t say that there’s any good reason for this association, it just happens.

This soup was created out of one of those ‘oh no, what am I going to make for dinner?’ nights.

I love smoothies but I admittedly get tired of the same old fruit and yogurt versions. This one is an unexpected twist from the norm and is PACKED with protein and fibre to keep you feeling full and energized throughout the morning.
