Munch

The Pre-Exam Energy Bowl This dish is great for that nervous breakfast or lunch before you walk into your fate. Its ingredients are tailored for the brain: salmon for boosting memory, quinoa for a slow release of energy, eggs because someone once told me the brain likes them, and spinach for all its greeny goodness.

Food. What is it to you? Two pieces of toast in the morning or a croquembouche? A sit down Sunday roast or a quick bite from the corner shop? Something that excites you, something that worries you, a necessity? This is a blog about food (yes another blog about food) with its focus being on…
