Holidays are about being home all day, but being home all day, usually leads to eating lots of food.

I am always biting and bobbing when I am off work, mostly on the wrong kinds of food too. 

Having a salad jar already to eat is a great idea for you to snack on healthier foods or whip up a nice quick and easy warm salad.

I just loved having a chopped-up salad in the fridge waiting to be eaten, or having something quick to cook up for when I get the munchies or just get bored and need something to do.

Thirdly, Superfood Christmas Salad.

Walnuts have long been considered synonymous with the festive season.

Often enjoyed freshly cracked open with a nutcracker, or more commonly bought already shelled, walnuts are used in a variety of sweet and savoury seasonal dishes – or simply enjoyed on their own!

The unique taste and texture of walnuts makes them a supremely versatile ingredient and means they can do so much when it comes to Christmas cooking.

Incorporating them into seasonal starters, sharers, mains and desserts will add crunch, sweetness, colour, texture and more. Superfood Christmas Salad.

From a Clementine Marinated Prawn Cocktail that serves as the perfect Christmas dinner starter to a Jewelled Roast Turkey & Couscous Salad, which is ideal for using up leftovers, each recipe is low sodium but still full of flavour.

LoSalt has 66% less sodium than regular table, sea, or rock salt, and can be used exactly the same way as normal salt, whether cooking, baking, or seasoning with it. Jewelled Roast Turkey & Couscous Salad.
