This is a re-write of an old post about this incredible gut friendly drink. I've had so many enquiries about kombucha making since Lockdown, so it's an ideal time for a re-vamp! Yes, it's all about gut health and digestion. You all know I'm into gut health by including raw fermented foods into my diet. Sauerkraut is lovely, but not…

'Out with the old, in with the new'. Is this a phrase you use? I find it a strange time of year, it's like we are brushing away 2018 with vigour as we plough on in to the New Year. Let's think about this. Some of you will have had years that you would like to forget, others have just…

Some of you will have seen via instagram that I have been a little arty recently. It's been a while coming to fruition, but I have embarked on something new. Something that can run alongside what I already do. I used to paint, but I'm not a natural born artist, giving up art at school, as only the superbly talented…

It's that time of year again. It happens every year - the post Christmas detox. The media is full of celebrity fitness videos, new diets, and which juicer/blender to buy. With the vast reach of social media, we see it even more, but believe me, this has been going on every January for years. I've been doing what I do…

I had no one to entertain, no hoards of visitors to feed, and no long list of presents to purchase, but it really got to me this year. Ridiculous really. I became teary, depressive, and almost agoraphobic. Gone are the days where I used to look forward to Christmas for the parties. The thought of having to purchase a new…

I've been on a bit of a mission. Unless you have been living under a stone over the past few weeks you will have noticed the sudden surge of interest in global plastic pollution. Momentum has increased with the BBC Blue Planet, and media coverage of how our wildlife is being harmed by plastics. If you haven't heard of the…

Mindfulness techniques are something you can't really use at the dentist. Mindfulness is all about being in the moment, and when I'm at the dentist, I don't want to focus on being in the moment at all. I'd like to be somewhere else. A long way away! I've always looked after my teeth. At least a two minute clean twice…

I've done recipes for chocolate courgette cake and beetroot cake, in the past, and even this one made it into a blog a couple of years ago. As it's squash time again, I thought I'd re-write and re-post! Squash are becoming so popular with lots of different varieties out there. They need a lot of water and space to trundle…

Fifty is NOT the new forty. It's fifty. It is as it is, and at some point you may begin to think you are invisible. Are you invisible? Have you had that feeling that there is nothing to look forward to, or to plan for? Are you lost because your children have left home and your identity has shifted? Has it…

Music moves you, it makes you weep. Some gives you goosebumps. Drums call people together, chimes give focus, and the sounds in nature restore and heal you. Sound therapy is a huge subject, and one I have always been interested in. It only seems right that sound is used in healing therapies, whether it is peaceful resonance music during a…
