Going Raw...why its not just about eating cold food! Part 1

Jan 16, 2016

Over the last ten days I have been assisting Kate Magic: the most experienced raw food promoter in Europe,  at a raw food retreat on a tiny island off Malta called Gozo. Kate has over 20 years experience of raw eating and raised her three lovely sons on a raw diet.

With Christmas less than two weeks away staying healthy may well have completely been pushed aside making room for mince pies, mulled wine, port, stilton and any other festive treats that…

I love Halloween for one overbearing reason: pumpkins!

I love everything about these amazing gourds: their mood boosting colour, the fun I have choosing and carving them and the amazing versatility of this orange fruit in the kitchen.

Oct 15, 2015

Essential Fatty Acids…you have definitely heard of these critters. You know that they support brain health and are aware that they are sold at the gym to ward of aches and pains but what are they and what have they got to do with Omega-3?

As we get older we go from being anabolic* machines that can eat as much as we want, build muscle easily, burn fat quickly and recover fast to catabolic* catastrophes that are slower, more lethargic, take longer to recover from exercise and if we simply look at cake we put on 5lb’s!

This week I’m going to give you a simple formula to work on! Go back to GCSE maths when you were taught algebra…

During our last post, we talked about the bacteria in our tummies and why it is so important to look after it. During this post, we are going to talk about the how. How we can support our digestive health? And a good place to start is with probiotics.

Castor Packing…a simple way to cleanse without going on hunger strike

Aug 06, 2015

Do you drink more than 4 units of alcohol per week, every week? Do you or have you ever smoked? Do you eat out more than 3 times per week? Do you need caffeine hit to be able to function? Do you eat more than a palmful of nuts daily? Are you tired? Overweight? Stressed? Constipated?
