#7 The hangover from Christmas - eating in January 2018

Food in January is always a bit like the hangover from Christmas. Over indulgence of deliciously rich food across the festive season has paved the way for diets, gym memberships and healthy food. Fortunately, being a foodie means looking for inspiration even at the darkest of times can come with just a little effort. To help everyone else, ive posted a round up of my January 2018 so far...

I have tried keeping the leaf whole and mixed it with other green salad like cucumber and spring onions to get the very best from its taste (and looks!)  Roasted tomato salad tastes excellent when the tomatoes are still hot. Adding goats cheese at the end; the two work well together. There is simply no better taste in January than a bow
