Tips For Turning Every Food into a Superfood

May 10, 2017

The term “superfood” gets thrown around a lot these days. So far, we know that a superfood is supposedly a food that has superior nutrition to other foods. While there is no specific data available on how many foods can be classified as one, we are lead to believe that only certain foods can be superfoods. But what if any food (within reason- not like a donut or anything) can be turned into a superfood by eating it at the exact time when its nutrients are the most absorbable? Bioavailability refers to how well your body absorbs nutrition from the food you eat. Although it’s a very complex process, a food’s bioavailability deals with its age and preparation, how long it has been since it…

March 30, 2013

This old saying has a lot of truth: ‘an apple a day, keeps the doctors away’. So long as in this day and age it is a certified organic apple.

Why Drinking Cow’s Milk (Including Organic) is Over Rated, Not Natural & Promotes Animal Abuse

June 28, 2012

It is actually disgusting the amount of people that consume milk on a daily basis having been misled about its supposed ‘health benefits’. The majority of this milk is also taken cows that have been reared by totally unsustainable conventional farming that promote cruelty in farming rather than preventing it. The majority of people I am sure reading this probably believe that cows milk is healthy and that it comes from happy smiley cows like you see on the ads. Today I am going to break these myths and hopefully offer you some simple reasons why if you currently drink milk, why it might be better that you don’t.

Tip: How to store fresh broccoli to keep it longer in the fridge

May 8, 2012

When it comes to buying fresh vegetables, we are all guilty of wasting items from time to time. But simply knowing how to store fresh vegetables and fruit correctly can ensure you do not have to waste any more food before it has gone rotten, but also before it has simply wilted which many people mistakenly think means the vegetable has gone rotten. My tip today is to ensure you keep your broccoli happy by storing him correctly in the fridge. Simply on the day you buy Mr. Broccoli, make a small slice across his stem in the centre from end to end. So you are not cutting anything off him, just slicing him open a little.

Gluten and Dairy Free Bread Review: Living Raw Onion Bread by Pura Vida

April 3, 2012

Many gluten free breads on the market today are so full of dangerous additives, preservatives and colourants (to name a few), and are so overheated during the cooking process – it means that avoiding gluten is not the only thing we should be worrying about when choosing a bread. I live a gluten and dairy free lifestyle and have done for about 3years. I have found many challenges along the way with this lifestyle, not only with trying to ensure these ingredients are not in the food items I buy, but ensuring I am actually getting a healthy gluten and dairy free food item at that. The gluten free breads I have tried on the UK market, have been quite bland and always full of nonsense ingredients that take away the healthy aspect…

Juicing is brilliant for dislodging toxins from those organs that are overburdened, so can help your skin look clearer and because of this is vital for preconception work.…
