  • Do you cook with oil?

    Many recipes condition us into: heat pan, add oil and chuck in ingredients. Yet most of the time this is not necessary. With cooking oil going up in price, and shortages happening, I for one am interested in breaking the habit and have been trying out oil-free cooking.
  • More Food, Fewer Calories

    A new law came into force on 6 April that requires many eateries to state calories on their menus. Yet we get nutrition from food not calories. A calorie count does not show how much salt, protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals or diversity there is in an item.

  • How varied is your diet?

    Eating a wide range of foods is great for our health. Try and fit 30 different plant based foods into your week. With a little planning and curiosity a balanced diet really is much easier that it sounds.

    Eating plants is healing. There are many research studies that tell us this. Despite the evidence about how good plants are for us many people are...
