After too many unhealthy, heavy or just bland office lunches, I decided to take control of my plate, and preparing fresh, simple and seasonal food at my desk became not just a little zen moment, but it changed my life completely. After more than one thousand salads in 4 years, yes one thousand. I can now say that I am a healthier, but more than that a happier person.

When I started making food at my desk my colleagues use to look at me like I was crazy, but after so many years I can only be happy about it. sure is that you have to be careful about what you chopping and tidy with your stuff, but it’s worth doing it.

Sometimes I like to mix between veggies and fruits, and together with this lovely smoked ham they create a lovely combo.

Always have my little mini spice collection and I love to add some extra flavour to my dressing. This time I’m crushing some fennel seeds and adding them to this lovely dish.

Herbs are always at the top of my salad like a cherry on the cake.

They add so much flavour with such a little quantity!

You can tell that I’m Italian because I use so much extra virgin olive oil! just unbelievable.

I now we are almost ready to eat, do you like my mini balsamic vinegar spray? it’s cute isn’t it?!

For me is very important to eat together with my friends, I don't like the idea of eating in front of my computer all alone, as an Italian I think sharing a meal is very important and we are social animals after all.

And there you go, back to work, full of energy, but not before the washing up!

Buon appetito!
