Recipes From The SS16 Shoot

We headed over to Amsterdam for our spring shoot, and were welcomed with an aray of colourful smoothies, fragrant soups and instagram-worthy salads and sandwiches. 

It's safe to say a day on set is incredibly fast-paced - so energy is the one thing you need whilst on our whirlwind of a shoot. These recipes are packed with protein and a much-needed unbundance of greens, that managed to keep us energized until the last snap was taken! 

If only our lunches could look this good everyday...
