As I’m well under way with my pre wedding beauty plan I’m trying to eat really healthily. I was never a particularly unhealthy eater before but I was partial to a bit of processed food and never ate as much fresh food as I should have done.

Not only are they great for meal planning but they give you fresh ideas and help you to judge quantities needed eliminating waste – I’m a big waster and end up throwing away so much food.
