“Good friends talk about their sex life. Best friends talk about poop”
Bowel Cancer Awareness month runs June 1-30 every year.
The campaign is designed to increase awareness in our community about the condition.

“All sorrows are less with bread”
Every now and then we like to post about the nutrients in every-day foods. We feel it’s important to do this for 2 reasons:

This Mango, Avocado & Chicken Salad Recipe is a combination of a few different mango salad recipes we’ve tried.
Feel free to swap things around. You really can’t go wrong.
If it’s not mango season where you live in the world, you can use tinned mangoes instead. Too easy!
Ok here it is…. Continue reading
