GOOD GREENS MATCHA OATS

We have been told all our lives to eat our greens, it will make us strong. Here you go watch Popeye an be brainwashed. Though it does hold truth and greens have amazing health benefits for our body.

INDIGO HERBS REVIEW AND EXCLUSIVE RECIPES

As you are probably well aware by now I live in the middle of bumfluff nowhere. A worn down town that lived its hay days during the height of the slipper industry. That being said it means I am surrounded by beautiful countryside, countless reservoirs and open fells. It is pretty easy to lead a healthy lifestyle here. We always walk to do our Tesco shop, which is six miles. There are amazing places to go bike riding along with stunning walks. Having all those joys does not come without…

KALE COURGETTE OMELETTE RECIPE

KALE COURGETTE OMELETTE RECIPE

Last night I was whipping up some pudding that required only egg yolks. So not letting the whites go to waste I decided to cook up and tasty egg white kale courgette omelette. Recently I purchased some Kale powder from nutriseed which I have been dying to try. Kale is a great superfood, and can work wonders. However I struggle to cook with it.

Not only are avocados known for their creamy texture, they have so many other health benefits, from lowering the cholesterol and triglyceride levels, to relieving the…
