Turmeric Chai Bliss Balls + Happy New Year

Hello there,  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and relaxing holiday season.  I love this time of year between Christmas and New Year, where everyone seems to take a big sigh after the Christmas festivities and life seems to slow down to normal pace again. In our house we have completely lost track of what day f the week it is and are just letting our days unfold without any planning, which is an enjoyable novelty. The number one offering for guests dropping into our place at this time of year are my Turmeric Chai Bliss Balls. I love these little morsels, not only...

Raw Turmeric Chai Cheesecake From My Travels

Hello there, Sorry it has been a while but I am finally back on the blog after the last few weeks of travel through London, France, Switzerland and currently Italy.  I think I must be the only person who travels with a litre of coconut oil, some activated buckwheat and a packet of golden grind turmeric chai in my bag. Admittedly I picked up the oil and buckwheat from Wholefoods in London but the Golden Grind (a few packets of it) came all the way from Sydney and ended up at my friend’s place in the French Alps. I must confess I...

Turmeric Cashew Cheese + EOFY Sale

Hello there,Well I was going to send this out yesterday but with the whole Brexit ordeal I got rather distracted. I also figured making Turmeric Cashew Cheese was probably rather trivial in comparison to the global economic situation that has followed Brexit. In saying that we all do go on eating, cooking, sleeping; life continues but with just a bit more uncertainty. I remember some years ago, when working in Hong Kong (living a different life in my banking days), I escaped to the Philippines to spend some time at a health retreat called The Farm in San Benito. It was the perfect place to recharge...

MCT Oil - Similar to Coconut Oil but Turbocharged.

Hello there, This week we talk about good fats, which are an essential part of our diet and our wellbeing. Today we specifically discuss MCT oil, which is said to boost energy, aid in weight loss and help fight candida (to name just a few benefits).I'm delighted to welcome the lovely Nik Tooth, otherwise known as The Lean Body Coach, to the Nourishing Hub to share her words of wisdom on the health benefits of MCT oil. Have you ever tried coconut oil? I’m sure if you have, you’ve heard about its endless health benefits. Coconut oil is a saturated fat, and although saturated fats have been bashed in the media...

How To Recover From Antibiotics

Hello there, Usually we talk about how we can recover from an illness or infection by using antibiotics but, today I want to talk to you about how we can recover from a dose of antibiotics. Antibiotics play an important role in fighting pathogenic bacteria and play a key role in modern day health. However taking antibiotics comes at a cost. Antibiotics strip away the bad bacteria in the body but also eradicate the good bacteria, making them ineffective. This bacteria disruption in the body has been linked to digestive disorders, allergies, autism, depression, MS, colon cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and more recently obesity...

How to Use Activated Charcoal

Hello there,This week I am going to share with you the amazing health benefits of charcoal and how to use it in your everyday life. I found this topic incredibly hard to condense down into one blog; I own a book that is dedicated entirely to charcoal remedies and there is just so much to say on this topic. Charcoal expert John Dinsley states, 'Charcoal is history, it is poetry and art and it is science. Much more than this charcoal is cleansing and healing for man an nature'.Charcoal has a powerful ability to adsorb toxins, unwanted chemicals, bacteria and poisons. Adsorption is the binding of...

Why Eat Clay + How to Make a Clay Face Mask

Hello there, I have been meaning to write about edible clay for a long time. I tried my first bentonite 'clay shake' about 10 years ago at a place called the Sanctuary in Koh Phangan in Thailand. At the time I was working for a bank in Hong Kong and decided to take myself off for a 7 day detox/cleanse on this small Island off Koh Samui. Among other things, the cleanse involved 4 detoxifying clay shakes a day, which were bentonite clay mixed with psyllium husk and watermelon juice. It might sound disgusting and it does take some getting used to but I have say after my 7 day...

The Ultimate Me Time Experience + Your Chance to Win It!

Happy New Year to you! I have had a little blogging holiday but I am back, refreshed and ready for another wonderful year with you!  2014 was the Chinese year of the horse, and for me it felt like the year of the work horse! My two beautiful little people, my business and just keeping up with daily life seemed to consume every spare minute of the day and night. There was plenty of joy but also a lot of hard old slog of which I’m hoping to be able to leave a little behind this year! I don’t think I realised how much I...
