Anew ultimate moisturiser
Hi everyone just wondering if anyone can help. I have a customer who has run out of her Anew ultimate sheer tint moisturiser. For a few books it has not been in them! It used to come in a gold bottle. Just wondering if I have missed something and Avon no longer sell it and if this is the case could someone advice but it is similar so I can tell my customer? She really likes that is tinted. Thank you Emma

Fresh and Fabulous Blog - Healthy jar salads

If you haven’t spotted the latest craze in healthy packed lunches, now’s the time to discover jar salads.

They’re a great way to make healthy packed lunch, you just have to know a few basic rules to get you started.

 

First, find a clean jar with a tight fitting lid – I use 490ml mason jars.

 

Next, layer up your salad in the following order:

 

  • 1 tbsp dressing
  • Handful of hard veg
  • Handful of beans or pasta
  • Handful of cheese, meat or tofu
  • Soft fruit and veg
  • Nuts, seeds and cooked grains
  • Salad leaves

You can of course skip layers if you want, but the idea is to start with the dressing and then keep the hardest elements towards the bottom and the softest elements towards the top, so that everything stays fresh and crunchy until you turn it out onto your plate.

 

You’ll be amazed how appealing a salad can look straight out of the jar. Here’s my lunch:

And you don’t even need a plate. If you’re on the go, you can just shake the salad and then eat right out the jar.

 

Loving the sound of jar salads? Here are four ideas to get you started.

For this olive, bean and feta salad, I layered up:

 

  • 1 tbsp French dressing
  • ½ red pepper, chopped into chunks
  • 1 handful butterbeans
  • 1 handful black olives
  • 50g feta, crumbled
  • 6 baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small handful toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 large handful watercress

For this tofu, rice and beans jar salad, I used:

 

  • 1 tbsp coriander and lime dressing
  • 1/2 carrot, grated
  • 1 handful of edamame beans
  • 1 handful petis pois
  • 50g silken tofu, diced,
  • 3 chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 handful brown rice
  • 1 small handful cashew nuts
  • 1 large handful curly kale

For this ham and rocket salad, I used:

 

  • 1 tbsp balsamic dressing
  • ½ green and yellow pepper
  • 1 handful of chickpeas
  • 1 handful green olives
  • 30g cooked ham
  • 6 baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large handful rocket

And finally for this couscous chicken salad, I used:

 

  • 1 tbsp honey mustard dressing
  • 1 handful diced cucumber
  • 1 handful kidney beans
  • 1 handful sweetcorn
  • 30g cooked chicken
  • 6 baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small handful sunflower seeds
  • 1 large handful baby spinach

You can put pretty much anything you like in your salad jars. I tend to make mine the night before so that in the morning I can just grab and go. It’s a great way to use up leftovers too, from canned veg to the last of a bottle of dressing.

 

As a rule of thumb, meat, rice and pasta should be cooked and cooled before you start making up your jars. Most beans, peas and pulses can be used straight from the tin after a quick rinse, and salad leaves labelled ‘ready to eat’ can go straight into the jar.

 

Let me know if you try jar salads for yourself.

 

Until next time.

 

Your food blogger,

How to @mention people in posts
Hi everyone!   I just wanted to give you a bit more information on how you can tag each other in a post. As the old Avon Connects didn't have this function, we are very excited that this new community lets us tag each other!    All you need to do is type an @ sign and then add the username (with no space) of the person you wish to tag. A list of options will drop down and you just click on the username.     This will then send an instant notification to the user, notifying them that they have been tagged. It is another way of receiving notifications when someone has replied to your posts or comments.   Give it a go below! Tag one or more of your friends on the community, I'm going to tag @charlottelsavon  and @tessavon     Chanelle
