You don't have to just eat rice cakes if you are trying to be healthy. I have always used the term 'everything in moderation', but I am well aware that knowing what 'moderation' is, can be quite difficult as every body is different. Every one of us has a different body and metabolism and it seems that it takes us…

I was converted to muesli after a ski holiday to Austria earlier in the year. You could just add all the extra bits you liked and grind a  selection of seeds in a lovely wooden spice mill making it kind of special. After a few weeks of being back home the novelty had worn off a bit, and there's no…

Having spent a week in Austria I have been inspired by the simple but also complex breakfast that is muesli. I've always liked porridge in the winter as a filling warming breakfast, but as spring moves in, my need for a warming breakfast moves out. I tend then to resort to spelt toast, which doesn't really fill me up enough.…

organic turmeric

I'm always interested in anything natural that can help health and wellbeing, and last year I discovered the powerful ways of the turmeric root. Turmeric in your diet used to be just in your curry powder. Looking like ginger, but more orange, you can now find this fresh rhizome in most good veg shops near the garlic, and chilli. Famed…

It's that time of year again. Everyone planning their New Year Detox even before the New Near has actually arrived. We all overindulged in some way or another at this time of year, with parties and dinners to attend, guests to feed, and children to keep happy. The shops are always full of delicious goodies like mince pies, trays of party nibbles,…

Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook, will know that I am an avid juicer, but not for a pure detox, more for a daily vitamin fix. I'm a great fan of Jason Vale and find his enthusiasm for his subject quite inspiring to say the least. Earlier posts, if you are new to this blog, will…

Raw Chocolate is becoming very popular because it is totally dairy free, and also free from refined sugar. It just contains a syrup like raw honey, or a product called Sweet Freedom. It is organic, mainly sourced from Ecuador and growers are normally members of the Fair Trade Association. As it is not heated above 42 degrees this classes it as 'Raw'. It's…

So, some of you have done a full detox, some have just cleared out the cheese and chocolate mountain from Christmas and others are still, very admirably, on the 28 day Global Detox with Jason Vale.  Whatever little post Christmas re-boot you have chosen, remember that the key is BALANCE! There is no point in going bonkers with a juice…

The previous post on about juicing verses a 'bullet' (or a blender), has created a lot of interest on Face Book and Twitter. It made me realise that the whole planet isn't actually following the Super Juice Me programme that the Juice Master Jason Vale promotes at this time of year. After all, I didn't know anything about juicing until…

Juice or Smoothie?

So many questions, so many options! I seem to be constantly asked about which juicer to buy and why don't I have a Nutribullet? So much to cover in one blog! I may have to do a little series, as the essence of juicing is a major sun jet in its own right! Lets start with Juicing though.....Having looked at…
