This pumpkin, potato and spinach salad is my absolute favourite salad. It has a slightly sweet tahini dressing, and the pickles are a fermented vegetable high in fibre which benefits your gut bacteria—balanced and healthy for your lunch or dinner!
Calories are a unit of energy. We need it to stay warm, move around and control other processes in our bodies. It is important to take in enough energy (calories) to keep your body functioning optimally. If you eat more than you use, you can either gain or lose weight if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are.
