Traditional Foods: Why We Need Them Back on the Table!

It’s finished!  My book ‘Once Upon a Cook – Food Wisdom, Better Living: The Wisdom and Science of Traditional Foods, Forgotten Skills and Nourishing Recipes’ is finally done!  For almost a year I’ve had my head down, eyes-to-the-screen, fingers a-flying and not least, nursed a stiff neck and aching back working...

Give Your Gut Critters a Summer Diet!

Our cheeky little Gut Critters (aka our gut microbiome) NEED a Summer diet!  They’re calling for us to calm the heat in our belly and transition from Spring foods to a Summer diet.  These smart cookies want cooler, moister foods which balance immunity, digestion, energy and weight and we need to listen...

How I’m Beating Arthritis with Food-as-Medicine (2): What I would have said to my younger self!

Sadly, my younger self wasn’t able to piece together the complex medical and research jigsaw on arthritis and psoriasis that convinced me that food-as-medicine was the ONLY way of truly healing myself from a progressive autoimmune disease – psoriatic arthritis. IN THE FIRST POST in this series I shared how good it felt to know I...

Delia’s Vanilla Cream Terrine with Raspberries and Blackcurrant Coulis

NO apologies what-so-ever for sharing this treat!  Trust our own Delia Smith to work her winning seasonal magic with a very pretty, pretty simple and ‘berry-healthy’ dessert you’ll want to make again and again! And healthy it sure is: a delicious helping of super-nutrient red berries, dairy, gelatin and not-to-feared-in-moderation sugar. It’s food-that-heals magic on a plate...

Spinach & Orange Winter Salad 0

Salad of the Season? Spinach, Orange & Cucumber

This salad is one of our my favourites and it’s delicious! What can I say? Oh, it’s THE salad of the season! I love to pair this punchy salad with a balance of protein, fats and carbs: well-seasoned, sliced cold grilled steak; smoked meats or fish; a real, proper pate; ripe raw, soft...

Real Orange Juice is a Powerful Friend, Not a Sugary Foe!

I drink OJ daily, powered up with sprinkle of sea salt (to aid hydration and down-regulate stress hormones) and a teaspoon of powdered gelatin (collagen hydrolysate – to support the liver with non-inflammatory amino acids glycine, proline, glutamic acid and alanine). But, buyer beware – there’s real orange juice and then, there’s the fake stuff passed off...

Beetroot and Avocado Breakfast Soup. Paleo, or Any Cuisine!

There’s a perfect solution for that ‘between’ season breakfast.  Breakfast smoothies are great in the warmer months, but what to do when mornings are still a bit (very?) chilly, and we’re wanting something warm and comforting  but quick and delicious to kick-start our day?  Oh, and transportable if possible! Hmm … So I put my taste buds to...

Beef Stock + Beef Bone Broth. Doubly Delicious!

Stock? Broth? Confused?  Does it matter?  Actually, it does.  Both are highly nutritious and very healing in slightly different, but very important, ways. (Image credit: MindBodySpiritualAwareness.com) Meat Stock vs Bone Broth Beef stock is short cooked (6 – 10 hours) and features the anti-inflammatory, gut-healing amino acids proline and glycine and gelatin. Beef broth...
