Healthy Food: Belinda’s Watermelon Salad

Healthy Food: Belinda’s Watermelon Salad

We kick off our Spring 6-week Challenge today, so we thought we’d share some healthy food – a little recipe from the meal guide to give you some kitchen inspiration. This super easy salad is full of goodness and the perfect lunch or dinner option over Spring and Summer. It’s our studio manager Belinda‘s creation and one of her favourites to make for herself.
