It can be easy to overindulge leading up to the festive time of year, so to help stay on track, try replacing a glass of wine with a wine glass filled with soda water, a few slices of lime, sliced strawberries, a few frozen raspberries and a few torn mint leaves. You can even throw in a dash of diet lime or diet lemon, lime and bitters cordial. Another idea is to replace the strawberries with thin slices of peach and the lime with lemon or orange slices. This way you will feel like you are still involved in the festivities and can indulge in a few glasses without the guilt!
I grow my own vegetables and herbs. I like being able to tell people that the lunch I’m serving started out as a seed in
