I’ve been using new face products and having the odd facial lately as I feel like my skin is looking as tired as I feel.
Then I got to wondering if my internal health could possibly be impacting my external appearance?
Is there another way to preserve my appearance? How do mummies in Egypt get preserved, I wondered?
I’ve been doing extensive research into this area of eternal youth and I want to share it with you today……
If you have no interest in maintaining a youthful glow, then check this recipe out anyway. It’s an uptown sandwich that fulfils all the fancy sandwich criteria.

Banh Mi with Quick Pickled Carrot

- 3 carrots, cut into match sticks
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
For the Banh Mi –
- 6 fresh long bread rolls (traditionally crusty white a la Vietnamese bakery style)
- 2 x 125g packets Steggles Just Eat It Oven Roasted Turkey
- 1 packet of pate, unless you can be arsed to make it
- 1 serve of pickled carrots
- 1 lebanese cucumber sliced into ribbons

What you will need to do :
Place your vinegar, sugar and salt into a bowl and stir until all dissolved. Add your carrot, stirring well and leave for half an hour. This will keep in the fridge for a few days easily (if you don’t eat them all).

Nearly finished, celebrate with a glass of vino.
