My top 5 flu-free essentials!

Let's be honest, the only good things about the flu or even a cold for that matter is a few days off work and an excuse to make people bring you mugs of hot tea! But we all know the flu isn't fun for anyone and although these below tips aren't a 100% guarantee to ward off the flu, you'll be putting your body at much less risk of catching it and if you do, then in you'll be in a better position to recover quicker.

Millet, Chickpea and Broccoli Salad

Millet, Chickpea and Broccoli Salad

This salad is a fantastic example of how you can balance a vegetarian meal. Millet is a great gluten free alternative that is similar to cous cous when cooked and is rich in iron, phosphorus and B vitamins, not to mention it also has an impressive amino acid profile for a grain. In this recipe I have used turmeric in the cooking liquid which has phenomenal anti-inflammatory properties.
