Online Shop closed until further notice Read More...

Due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in the UK we have taken the decision to temporally close our online shop effective immediately, 30th March 2020. Until now our shop has remained available, but the orders we have been receiving have been significantly lower than normal.

While we are just a small, home business between myself and my fiancé, we have decided to take this decision now in the hope that we can help to remove some of the unnecessary work put into the postal service here in the UK and around the world.

We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

Shop Price Increase Read More...
From 6th April 2020 prices in the shop will increase slightly, this is due to production costs and card processing fees increasing.

Salads don't have to be just plain boring lettuce, cucumber and tomato. This salad has a quinoa base, this is one that would also work well with gluten free couscous if you aren't a fan of quinoa. Perfect for a working lunch in the sometime, it's a bit more bulked out than a standard salad to make it more filling.
