Went to the yoga show this weekend, which was great. Somehow though I have conditioned myself to go to these shows really hungry. I think it’s from my time working at Dimensions the Dru health food store. Then we used to go to lots of organic food fairs, […]
Head chef at the Dru Centre in North Wales, Snowdonia Mountain Lodge, Keith devises and oversees the culinary and nutritional delights for all the course participants throughout the year.
His passion for feeding people began with home-baking at the age of 10. He was soon bringing to school cakes, breads and pasties. His schoolmates joined in and before long they were swapping cakes and recipes during the lunch breaks and raiding mums’ cookery books in the evenings.
A qualified Medical Herbalist Keith also offers exclusive and engaging health and nutrition retreats and courses in North Wales, aswell as workshops and seminars on Aryuveda throughout the UK and abroad.
As you know the journey from London to Bangor on the train can be challenging food wise, see my blog “the-trip-back-to-wales” . This time I was taking no chances, Greens and Beans the Dru cafe is only a few minutes from Euston station, and an absolute oasis of […]
Juicing is a great way to start the day, and supplement your nutrition naturally. It transforms simple vegetables into a delicious drink and the nutrients are in a natural liquid form making them easy to absorb. It’s so easy, try chewing 5 carrots, see how long it takes, but put […]
Went to the cinema last night to see Eat, Love, Pray which was great. It was amazing to see god and prayer featured on a mainstream film. Normally god is a taboo subject it’s a bit like a three-letter word! I think basically god is suffering a major image […]
Just started the day with a really healthy green smoothie. The great thing about this is that you can take quite a few healthy ingredients like omega oil, barley grass, raw spinach and lecithin that individually you would have to force down like medicine, and whizz them up into something delicious […]
I thought Bulgaria was bad for veggie food, till i just got the train to Wales. Was a bit late, so no time to stop at the Euston M&S food store for a really healthy falafel wrap and salad as planned. Had to rush on the train at […]
Its my turn tonight to cook again! Whoever is doing the rota is forgetting to put themselves on it… So pinto beans tonight, why? Because we have got about three things to choose from and we have done the other two. So I soaked these for 8 hours. People […]
Today its my turn to cook, I am going making a really nice dal. Not simply because its easy, just boil a bag of lentils and add a few spices , or because its cheap, (a bag of lentils is about a quid, which then triples in size when […]
What I like about this is that it uses simple ingredients, but is really nicely presented. It’s made with all local, seasonal produce, which is very much a feature of Bulgarian food. You can go to the supermarket and the apples are actually different sizes, some are even bruised, […]
Not quite costas but only cost .90 of a bulgarian lev, thats about 40p, so saved about a tenner on my coffee addiction alone over the last 3 days.
With summer fading fast and autumn rapidly approaching, the change of season is a great time to detox. But why bother? Does it make you live longer, or does it just seem like longer?! The answer is yes! A lot of aging is avoidable – it’s just a […]
Eating out tonight in Bulgaria which is always fun as a vegetarian, in fact i don’t think I am one any more! I have my phase book and say no fish, no meat and point to the script, which is like greek to me but worse. Its all […]
If you’d stayed at Snowdonia Mountain Lodge a few years ago you may have noticed something fishy about the smell of chips in the car park. Had the cafe degenerated into a cheap fast food outlet, abandoning the values of Dru Health and Nutrition? No, actually it was only […]
