These ladies have been meeting at the Goodwood library every week, working together to knit a rainbow jumper for a special little girl. They're finally putting it together! We love our local creatives! Meet local artist, Tiff Manuell, who runs the gorgeous and zesty studio, Happy House. Karli's Green spring salad Serves 4 Spring is here and it has bought not only sunshine and new life but also an abundance of fresh produce. And what better way to bring in the new season than with a healthy spring salad. This salad is light, simple and loaded with green vegetables full of nutrient dense goodness. What’s great about it Asparagus contains prebiotics and fibre, which help to boost the digestive system. Broccoli is full of vitamins A and E, folate and iron, plus it has huge amounts of vitamin C to help support your immune system. Spinach acts as an anti-inflammatory for the body and is loaded with alkalising nutrients to nourish your immune system and promote healing. Avocado is packed with healthy brain boosting fats and is a great anti-inflammatory to help fight disease. And peas contain a unique mix of health protecting phytonutrients, plus protein for repair and iron for energy metabolism.
