There is nothing more beautiful and nourishing then fresh fruit and vegetables, one of my new years resolutions was to be healthier and lose weight, well the start of the year didn't go to plan but the past two weeks have really been going well for me, and I have tried to encourage that by bringing healthy, fun recipe's to my blog.
Recently I visted Over Farm Market, this is a wonderful working farm , that run's a farm shop, owns animals, air strip and venue for weddings and other events. www.overfarm.co.uk/
When cooking I love to cook with local fresh ingredients, so visiting places like this is always exciting because it is also like a day trip out, I know you can buy vegetables from your local supermarket, but it just isn't as fun and interesting.
Over Farm Market even offers pick your own, which means you can pick your own fruit and vegetables, at the end of June you can go and pick your own strawberry's, and in October you can pick your very own pumpkin, now you can't do that in Tesco!
Later on in the evening I used the fruit and vegetables I bought to make a healthy salad, and break time snack for my lunch for work.
For anyone that is wondering, my Salad is in the Salad To Go by Sistema, and so is my Fruit Pot container, everything of relevance is linked so you can give them a go too, they are excellent containers and fit perfectly in my Lunch Cool Bag.
You can find my Lunch Bag:Here.
My healthy eating plan is going well and so far I have lost 4lbs, hope everyone has had a wonderful Fathers Day.
