Amazing Amsterdam

Amazing Amsterdam

I have been to Amsterdam a few times in the past but haven't been back since the 90s.  What a delight to re-discover this unique city: so clean, architecturally beautiful, friendly, and, apart from the speed the bikes go, so safe!  We were there for five days and had the time of our lives, walking, eating, giggling and gigging................

My favourite protein packed smoothie.

My favourite protein packed smoothie.

The ingredients for my daily smoothies change as often as the UK weather!  I am constantly adding new ingredients, researching and trialling the latest pro-aging foods and, after years of experimenting, I think this is now The Perfect Smoothie, so far, for delivering optimum nutrition and a protein punch - very important for supporting our adrenals in the morning to give us maximum energy and healthy hormones.

Wrinkly chest and neck be gone!

Wrinkly chest and neck be gone!

Did you know your neck (and chest in my case) ages twenty times faster than your face? Tell me about it!  I have always worn sunscreen on my face and chest but the crepiness and lines on this thinnest part of the body seem to be unavoidable at any age post 45.

Goodwood - I'm only here for the dancing!

One of my summer highlights is going to the the Three Friday Nights at Goodwood: eating, drinking, racing & raving!  After seeing the Rolling Stones gathering absolutely no moss at their gig this year, I am even more determined that I will keep dancing no matter how old I am……….

One of my favourite summer recipes for healthy hormones, heart & brain......

Another yummy recipe from the day I spent with fellow blogger Sara Delaney, trying out new dishes especially for happy hormones and a healthy heart. Sara does the superb photography, I do the cooking and we both get to do the eating!  It's a very mutually beneficial arrangement!  This one is our twist on a salad nicoise, featuring salmon and silver anchovies as the heroes..........

A brunch recipe bursting with health.......

I love trying out new recipes, especially ones brimming with health, so to spend the day with a fabulous photographer whilst cooking an untried dish from my favourite chef, and eating it, doesn't get much better than that! Add the mix of doing this in a stylist's home and it's quite the perfect day for a nosey blogger.
