  • This is a deliciously hearty and filling soup containing a variety of detoxifying nutrients. Garlic and onion are sulphur containing allium vegetables. Sulphur is a sticky molecule which acts as a sort of glue for transporting free radicals and toxins out of the body. Sulphur-rich foods can also boost glutathione levels, which the liver needs for detoxification. Kale is a cruciferous vegetable, and these types of vegetables help to stimulate both phase 1 and phase
  • Every week, I have a local, organic vegetable box delivered, (Slipstream Organics if you’re in Gloucestershire) which I love, but last week, there was more beetroot than I knew what to do with! I love steaming beetroot and eating it cold with a goats cheese salad, or adding it to stews, but generally, what do I do when I have “too many vegetables” (if there is such a thing!)? Make soup of course! Now, bioflavonoids
  • Last week, in the midst of a cold, dark, wintery evening, I needed some variety from our traditional go-to dishes of warming stews and soups, and I really craved some Mexican flavours. The smell of lime juice evokes such wonderful thoughts of summer for me (margarita anyone?), so I decided to make a spicy chicken salad and of course, the main focus had to be the salsa. I’m one of those people who loves a
  • If you’re not particularly into eggs, need some inspiration for an egg-free breakfast or just fancy something sweet for breakfast, look no further. I love having a mid-morning vegetable smoothie but for breakfast, I need the ritual of actually eating something or I don’t feel satisfied. Although I gave up breakfast cereals many, many moons ago, I still miss their crunch and sweetness. If you’re like me, this smoothie bowl has the best of both worlds;
  • Bone broth is one of the most versatile things I cook, I make it almost every week. It is delicious as it is; sweet, warming, soothing and nourishing. But it’s also great as a stock for other soups, used in curries, stews, to flavour rice or quinoa, or in any savoury dish where you would normally add water. The possibilities are endless! When stored and cooled, the fat will rise to the top and solidify,
  • It might surprise you to know that the real secret to lasting weight loss isn’t actually any of the following; eating low fat, counting calories or running endlessly on the treadmill. While these things may show results in the short term, as soon as we revert back to our old habits, the weight comes back. With a vengeance. The real secret to lasting weight loss lies in your ongoing detoxification capabilities. We all need some fat
  • Did you know your skin is your body’s largest organ? (Did you know your skin is actually classed as an organ?). Your skin plays a huge role in detoxification. It’s the first line of defence against any toxins you don’t eat, drink or breathe, and it has three layers; the epidermis (outer layer), dermis (containing blood vessels, hair follicles oil and sweat glands) and subcutaneous fat, which is stored under the skin. Your skin acts as
  • Fibre is important for your body at any time, but particularly when doing a detox; not having enough fibre during a time of detoxification can actually be counterproductive and may sabotage your detox efforts. As your body releases trapped toxins from your fat cells and other body tissue (such as your lymphatic system), they are first detoxified by your liver and then dumped into the bile before being moved into the intestines for elimination. Fibre helps
  • This courgette and basil soup is light and refreshing, perfect for lunch or when you don’t fancy a heavy meal. Basil and garlic give this soup a delicious Mediterranean flavour and the pureed courgette brings a silky texture. This recipe includes spinach, which is an excellent source of vitamins K, A, C and folate. Spinach also contains coenzyme Q10, and courgettes contain selenium, both of which are detoxifying antioxidants. Garlic and onions both contain sulphur,
  • For many people, the term “detox” might not sit too well in the stomach. The notion that many of our favourite and often enjoyed things in life might actually be bad for us, can be quite challenging to accept. (Until we find balance from those things, start to feel better and then learn to love replacing bad foods with foods that make us feel great!) But I don’t mean struggling to stomach a detox metaphorically
  • The concept of “personalised nutrition” isn’t exactly new, but with so much information at our fingertips, it isn’t always easy to find what works right for you, as an individual. The reason I first became involved in helping others with their unique nutrition and detoxification goals was when I realised there are far too many “one size fits all” plans out there. I achieved improvements in my own health following a personalised detox plan; I listened
  • I love pancakes, they are one of the most versatile things I make in my kitchen. So many options; sweet, savoury, nutty, packed with fruit or veggies and endless flour choices. They are so quick and easy, to make, always delicious and always popular in my family. The ones I made today are packed with berries. Many, many berries, because don’t we all love berries? Aside from their sweet and pungent deliciousness, berries are wonderfully
