Local food writer, Becky Alexander and nutritionist, Michelle Lake (Mission Nutrition, St Albans) have teamed up to produce Packed all about lunch and snacks recipes to squeeze more nutrients into your day. The authors are encouraging readers to say goodbye to soggy sandwiches and fill their lunch boxes with goodies that are simple to prepare, delicious and full of nutrients that will fuel the working day.
 
Local foodie Becky Alexander writes about food, she is in the Guild of Food Writers, and has lived in St Albans for 15 years but often work in London for book publishers such as Bloomsbury, Penguin, Dorling Kindersley, Vermilion and Nourish Books.  She follows food openings, special events, seasonal, farmer’s markets, and festivals in her column covering St Albans, Harpenden, Redbourn, Radlett and the villages so you will find things about local farmers, producers, pubs, independent shops, cafes and restaurants. You won’t find anything about big chains in her articles and she believes the local area has fantastic local produce and business that deserve our support!
