Superfood Brunch Recipe

I’m often asked what to do with green powders – spirulina, matcha green tea, wheatgrass powder etc.  They are all very strong in flavour so can overpower a lot of recipes (you may like the flavour, in which case that’s fine, spoon it in!!), so using them sparingly is normally best. They all have slightly […]

Healthy Hot Drinks

So today we hear that our cafe-bought hot drinks, which are much needed on chilly days like today, are overloaded with sugar. Action on Sugar analysed 131 drinks and found that a third had at least as much sugar as a can of soft drink such as Coca-cola, which contains 9 teaspoons, and in the […]

The Importance of Vitamin D through the Winter Months

Well it may not feel too cold yet, but we certainly haven’t been seeing much sun in the past few days. And even if we did, it wouldn’t be strong enough to give us the amount of vitamin D we require each day to remain healthy (this only occurs between 11am-3pm from April to September […]
