Feeling fruity?

November 7, 2011 by Ange  

I’ve started adding fruit to cooked vegetable dishes and I have to say they taste rather lovely! During the summer I was adding lots of fruit into my salads, be they goji berries, strawberries or pears.  As the nights draw in, I’m carrying that over into my cooked vegetable dishes. So next time you’re stir-frying [...]

Should you be worried about Mercury in Tuna?

February 16, 2010 by Ange  

A recent report found that more than half of samples of brand-name canned tuna contained more mercury than deemed safe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). However, the same report found that only 5 percent of canned tuna samples contained mercury levels that exceeded the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) standards for safety, [...]

Carrot and banana gluten-free muffins

November 15, 2009 by Ange  

This is a delicious recipe for gluten free muffins. There are no added or refined sugars, the sweetness is all natural, from the dates and banana. Made with almond flour, they are naturally gluten free, but without any of the dryness that you can sometimes find with gluten free foods. They contain some good protein, [...]

Meat can be a healthy food, but it’s all about balance, and generally, people tend to eat more meat than is healthy and in particular, lots [...]

Good fish dish

June 23, 2009 by Ange  

I saw the End of the Line on Sunday, the new documentary about the state of our seas. We’ve been over fishing and generally not looking after the oceans for too many years now and the estimates are that we will run out of fish by 2048. Certain fish we’re used to seeing on the [...]

May 25, 2009 by Ange  

Asparagus is in season tasting as delicious as ever and ridiculously healthy and nutritious! For a vegetable they have a pretty good protein score and are a good source of fibre. Asparagus is high in vitamin K, vitamin A, folic acid and iron, lots of things that we nutritional therapists encourage you to eat. I’ve [...]
