This is one of my all time favourite salads that I make and always goes down a treat when I am running an event or cooking for clients.
It livens up the humble carrot and is a great mix of flavours.

On the 5th February 2019 I will be hosting my first Wellness Day in Gerrards Cross with my sister who is a fantastic Kundalini yoga teacher and dynamic coach, Jo Beardsworth.
The day will be filled with Kundalini yoga, nourishing food with recipes to take home, a talk on how to optimise our wellbeing and the impact our food choices make on balancing our hormones, and a dynamic coaching session to build confidence and kick off 2019 full of health and happiness.
We will finish the day with a gong bath run by Lucy Keaveney who runs sessions regularly in London. Lucy will guide us through a journey using different sounds from ancient American instruments to shamanic drums, chimes, crystal bowls and her wonderful Air Gong.
The experience is deeply restorative and can take you into a deep state of meditation without having to do any work.
It can help with a number of issues including insomnia, anxiety, trauma and depression. It can help you break free of old patterns and regenerate and re-balance yourself.
Come and join us for what will be a fantastic day!
Come and enjoy a demonstration and tasting on learning how to make healthy food in a hurry.
No one has much time to cook but we all need to make sure that we are nourishing ourselves with real food. I will show you how to cook some quick and easy recipes combined with learning how to implement new healthy eating habits into your life to make you feel better every day.
