donna hay - Fresh + Light - - Editor’s Letter - @fre­shan­d­light @don­na­hay­magazine @donna.hay

We are so lucky to live in an age where there is a wealth of in­for­ma­tion and in­sight into what we can eat to help us re­ally thrive, but for me, no mat­ter what the head­lines say, it al­ways comes back to the ba­sics – fresh pro­duce and whole­foods. While I am of­ten in­spired to try new things to see what makes me feel my best, it’s all about bal­ance and eat­ing a va­ri­ety of nour­ish­ing foods (with a treat now and then, of course!). This beau­ti­ful new is­sue of Fresh + Light has ev­ery­thing I need to feel en­er­gised dur­ing the au­tumn months, whether I’m af­ter break­fast on-the-go, an easy week­night din­ner or some­thing spe­cial to im­press. You can’t miss our recipes (in­clud­ing the amaz­ing cover star) us­ing one of my favourite hero in­gre­di­ents, cau­li­flower (page 102). And our veg­etable tarts (page 62) have be­come reg­u­lars at home – the whole­meal hot wa­ter pas­try is so easy that I’ve taken to mak­ing two or three tarts for when friends come over. We’ve also ex­plored ways of us­ing ex­tra vir­gin olive oil in ev­ery meal of the day, in­clud­ing a must-make cake (page 116). Speak­ing of dessert, the cooler weather means I’m turn­ing the oven on, and our gluten-free cakes (page 128) and fruity cob­blers (page 140) are sat­is­fy­ing all my sweet crav­ings. And, of course, there are snacks, treats, and more for those in-be­tween mo­ments. In a nut­shell, this is food to nur­ture your­self and the peo­ple you love, and I hope you en­joy!
