Healthy habits
- basing lunch around salad.  This fills with fewer kilojoules.
- including salmon.  This is rich in essential omega 3 fats
- including chickpeas; these add slow release carbohydrates and extra protein
- reversing the ratio of oil to acid in the dressing.  This keeps the kilojoules lower.
