Healthy Summer food

It is so much easier to eat healthy in warm weather when light foods & salads are the norm in our household.

The warm weather means that we can have lots of walks around our local lake


Our drink of choice is lots of citrus water which is good for skin & weight too


Pitta breads are perfect light suppers - wholewheat ones with lean meatballs & lots of salad


My favourite salad dressing is a light drizzle of this fabulous balsamic vinegar


There is nothing nicer than getting out in the sunshine & eating al fresco on the patio with the fountain nearby


Whole roast chicken with new potatoes, a spicy salsa, houmous & salad - perfect!


Fresh fruit is a perfect end to a meal with meringues, yoghurt & grated dark chocolate


Good for the heart too ....


A whole roast chicken also means that the next day we can have homemade chicken & vegetable pies with salad - really tasty ....


My wine boffs have moved back home so we are spoilt for choice with





and some refreshing champagne beer ...


What is your favourite warm weather / light food?  Is it easier to have salads? Please inspire me with some new recipes ....
