Mum finds Red Back in her basil!

Macey posted the image to our The Healthy Mummy Private groups and wrote, “Look what was in my basil, I nearly just wrapped my hands around that.”

She said she had bought the basil from Coles and left in the car for a few minutes before finding the spider and it’s web on the herb. Macey then decided to throw the basil out. So next time and try also our Thai salad recipe!

The Healthy Mummy community member was making a Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipe, when she found the spider on one of her ingredients!
