After a couple of weeks ‘off’ my diet, and Christmas officially over – it’s time to get back on track and start counting the calories again. My salad pictured is a scrumptious way to kickstart my new year efforts to lose two and a half stone. With only 200 calories, it’s a cornucopia of fresh salad leaves, carrot, onion, garlic, red pepper, beetroot and potato salad (the majority of the calories but deliciously worth it). As well as losing weight and getting my BMI down, I’m also raising funds for the highly respected Devon Charity Devon Air Ambulance and I’m absolutely thrilled to have raised over £150 so far, thanks to some incredibly lovely and generous people. Please check out my Virgin Giving page today and even if you can only spare a pound or two – please do chip in as it all helps us get closer to the £1000 target. Thank you.
