Affordable Real Food: How to Shop for It

Affordable real food? Yes, really! But with over 80% of food retail in the UK controlled by four supermarket chains, there’s no doubt about it: they’ve seduced us with convenience, open-all-hours-one-stop-shopping, bewildering choice, bargain-buys, and a parking space… what’s not to like?

Strawberries and Coconut Cream Pops (Dairy-Free & Egg Free)

I LOVE this recipe from SHAINA OLMANSON  (100 Days of Real Food). Shaina says; ‘‘It’s wonderful with any fresh fruit. Use your seasonal favorites, from raspberries to peaches. In-season fruits shine here, blending with the creamy coconut milk. The bit of added honey or maple syrup helps lower the freezing point...

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...
