Starting University? Don't worry about meals - just plan them

Becoming a student and going away to University is an exciting step that many young people take after leaving school.

My Patients Depend on me to Buy Meat Online

Running the kitchen of a busy, full care home is certainly not an easy job but I do enjoy it. I’ve got my own way of doing things and after twenty years experience I didn’t think there was much I didn’t know about catering.

I lead a fairly healthy lifestyle by eating healthy food and competing in a lot of sports. I’ve learned a lot about which foods are good for you, which are not so good and which should be avoided, but I have never had a test to see which foods are good or bad for me as an individual.
