This week the British public were surprisingly informed to drop the "5 a day" rule and follow the new recommendation of "7 a day" or even "10 a day" 80 gram portions of fruit and vegetables. The latter is the recommendation of doctors at the University of Liverpool in an accompanying editorial to the recently published research study in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health conducted by University College London. Several of my work colleagues couldn't believe that this was at all possible, most of them complaining that they couldn't even follow the "5 a day" rule!

It was Mother's Day in the UK yesterday and the perfect excuse to bake a cake! But in order to satisfy everyone's dietary needs, it HAD to be vegan AND gluten free. I have to admit that many of my attempts at baking vegan cakes with gluten free flours have turned out to be very disappointing, in fact quite disastrous really! However, as soon as I saw the beautiful vegan lemon drizzle cake on Bit of The Good Stuff, I knew that I MUST attempt to make it gluten free and yesterday was the ideal occasion since my daughter was visiting and she adores lemon drizzle cake.

I was honoured and delighted to be invited by Shirley to contribute a recipe to the March Muffin Madness Event over at GFE - Gluten Free Easily this year. Thank you Shirley. Have you seen the wonderful contributions this year? They're all fantastic and there's savoury muffins as well as sweet. All diets are catered for including grain free, vegan and vegetarian and, of course, they're ALL gluten free! There's some very talented recipe designers out there in blogland!

It's St Patrick's Day tomorrow and this is my contribution to the celebrations. Jam packed full of green veggies and served with an avocado and mint dressing, this salad is the ultimate green salad.
