Do you ever get inspired to make your favourite restaurant meals at home? I have been especially inspired lately, because we have not really been eating out since this pandemic started (with the exception of 2 times).


One of my favourite restaurants to go to is Freshii – and our local one has recently closed down for a few months, unfortunately! Therefore, more than ever I’ve been inspired to create healthy restaurant meals. Check out my two favourite Freshii recipes that I’ve recreated for you!
