The dangers of Table Salt

I grew up in a household where salt and pepper were not a regular feature on the dining table. In fact, I’d go a step further and say that they weren’t even a feature during the cooking process!

Brighton and Hove Food Festival 2015

I’m bursting at the seams with food ideas, recipes, health tips, feelings, excitements, frustrations, quotes and much more and finally after much deliberating, I’m taking the plunge and beginning my blog.
