 Your go-to brekkie is…

An omelette (with any veges from the fridge).

Your go-to lunch is…

It really depends where I am. If I’m out I love a nutritious salad or if I’m at home, I love avocado, tomato and salmon on home made crackers which is usually quick, easy and delicious!

Your go-to dinner is…

Chicken Salad (mango, chicken, rocket, halloumi, avocado and aioli dressing).

Dessert or no dessert…

Dessert but not every night. Sometimes I make home-made Peanut Butter Cups for when the sweet tooth hits after dinner. (Melt dark chocolate (I use 90% Lindt), and put in mini muffin discs, ½ tsp of dark choc followed by ½ tsp of peanut butter and cover with ½ tsp of dark choc, then set in freezer.
