After an almost non-existent winter we are gently moving into an early spring with bright sunny days starting early this year.

The bright colours of Easter go perfectly well with the bright sunshine and we have a bunch of tips for capturing the best pictures at this time of the year – think happy kids faces collecting brightly coloured Easter eggs in a blooming garden.

With the spring comes the dreaded fear of the looming summer and preparing to expose everything at the beach. Daniel Petre talks about the benefits of eating carbs at night. That’s right, carbs at night. Though we’ve been brainwashed into thinking carbs after 6pm are the devil, Daniel defends the carb supper with arguments like boosting blood sugar control, combating hunger and building muscle when combined with protein.

Talking of food, spring is a great time to be spending time with the family, enjoying the garden before it gets too hot. The Preca sisters, from Gourmet Today TV, share some of the recipes they regularly make for their own families. Fresh, delicious, easy and quick – these qualities ensure that they have plenty of time to spend with their guests rather than slaving away in the kitchen… that’s something they reserve for work days at their restaurants!
