There's more to eating healthy than just a chicken salad!

We all know that when it comes to being healthy that the hardest part is eating healthy and making something that actually tastes nice! Not only can healthy eating be boring but it’s also bloody expensive! I always find that the vegetables I buy end up getting thrown away because they’ve gone out of date by the time I’ve come to using them, but there is a solution!

Pickling liquor helps preserve food. It takes food that only has a lifespan of 4 days up to a few months! It brings a whole new level of flavor to a boring vegetable, and you can add extra flavors too such as garlic, chilli flakes, coriander seeds etc. There are a few techniques for making the pickling liquor, the one I use is just water, white wine vinegar and sugar. For whatever amount of water you use pour in half as much vinegar and for whatever amount of vinegar you use half as much sugar.

For Example;

  • 500ml water

  • 250ml white wine vinegar

  • 125ml sugar


Place all into a sauce pan and bring to the boil. You can buy frozen bags of vegetables, which are picked at their prime time, for £1.00 from Tesco and you get a fair amount in them.

Grab a sealable container and but your frozen vegetables inside, then pour over the hot pickling liquor and close the container. That’s it! That’s all the hard work done! All you need to do is leave it overnight and its ready. Be creative with what you do with them, put them in salad with some steak or in some noodles.
