We are now more cautious about what we eat then ever before.
Eating healthy is something we all want to do, but we don’t want to compromise on taste.
Healthy eating has a bit of a name for not being as delicious as the gooey pizza or the comforting carbonara, but don’t be fooled! Good eating can be just as yummy!
This salad uses Good4U shoots, seeds and sprouts, which are high in nutritional value and ridiculously good for you (it’s all in the name!)
The company is based in Sligo, and have a huge range of healthy products that have won numerous awards.
At this time of the year when the colds start lurking about, it’s important to keep the immune system in tip-top shape.
