Chef Tips

If you buy pre-washed bagged spinach, and you are using it raw always wash it again to be on the safe side. If your immune is compromised, add a little vinegar to the wash water. Use whichever protein powder suits your needs, whether whey, egg, soy – there are so many – but try to buy the best quality you can.
