You don’t necessarily need to be a strict vegetarian to be healthy. Even a predominantly plant-based diet is a much healthier lifestyle choice than eating largely animal products every day. In the USA, a congregation called ‘Seventh Day Adventists’ has many people who choose to be vegetarian. Other […]

After giving the liver a bit of a treat, now it’s time to look at another really important detox organ: the skin. Most people don’t realise but the skin, because of its large surface area, is a bit like a third kidney. Through sweat and shedding dead skin […]
A castor oil pack is a really gentle way to detox the liver, and that’s important because the liver helps us digest fats, detoxes the blood, regulates hormones and stores energy. The pack gently relaxes the liver allowing it release toxins and rejuvenate. The potential benefits are; more […]
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, […]
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 […]
