Rainbow Persimmon Salad
Persimmons are in season in Australia from late February to mid-June (autumn and winter) and I just LOVE them! This seasonal rainbow persimmons salad is seriously tasty - and good for you.
You can use persimmons in a salad just like you would a peach. It goes perfectly with any cheese and is beautifully sweet.
If you haven't tried an Australian persimmon yet, I highly recommend you give it a go.

I am very proud to have worked with Persimmons Australia to create this recipe, in an initiative that supports the farmers who grow persimmons.
After a weekend of overeating, it's easy to say; "That's it. I'm getting back on track!" Keen to have your own body transformation (in just 12-weeks), you commit to big changes like no more junk food, no more alcohol, way more salad and exercising way more.

Do you focus on the 'what' can I eat WAY too much. If you're like most people, the answer is yes. Can I eat this for breakfast? Does this have too many carbs? Should I eat that much fat?
How often do you ask yourself why did I eat that?

For a huge part of my life, food consumed me (instead of the other way round)! I started dieting when I was 11. After a decade of torturing myself to try to lose weight, fit in and be accepted for my size, I finally quit dieting at 21.
I used to be an emotional eater. After a long day, I would turn to food for comfort (typically in private). I'd promise myself that the diet would start again tomorrow. This went on for years and years and I was too ashamed to get help. I wish I spoke out sooner....

At 17, I moved out of home to go to uni. For the first time, I had to cook all of my own food, but I didn’t really know how to cook! So I stuck to the basics – scrambled eggs, salads, sandwiches, wraps, tins of tuna and beans.
As a result, I never cooked meat. I didn’t...
