All in Health and Nutrition
Here's a quick update on my last video & blog on how to make my daily health smoothie. This is a great replacement for meals on fast days, if you're following the 5:2 diet, and will keep you going for hours. And it is full of huge health benefits. If you're an intermittent faster, or want to be, I do it the easy way: a light meal the night before by 7.00 pm latest, the smoothie as late as possible the next morning (around 11.00 a.m.) a very light low calorie snack, such as a banana or boiled egg, at tea time and then a light meal, such as loads of veg and a small portion of protein, in the evening at 7.00 pm. That's 500 calories in 24 hours and you've done a 16 hour pure fast without even trying. Two days a week, too easy!
I have never been squeamish about trying unusual foods. I was eating snails in garlic butter (l'escargots) in France at the age of 4, strange child! But when I came across a brand new protein, health bar, that was not only wheat-free, dairy-free, but made from cricket flour, I got really excited about it.

All spices are good for your health, they've been used for their medicinal properties for thousands of years. My favourites are turmeric & cinnamon, which I add to my daily smoothie. But now there's a new kid is on the block, for me, that I couldn't wait to share. What I didn't know, till very recently, is the amazing health benefits of saffron…..
I try to eat Omega-3 rich, oily fish like salmon as often as possible. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid that supports every single cell in our bodies so eating oily fish at least 3-4 times a week will keep skin plumped and your brain, heart and joints healthy…
My favourite saying at the moment is: “it's never too early or too late to start." Anything! So, whether you're 35 or 55 I want to share my experience of twenty years, practising as a nutritionist, to help you eat your way through a symptom-free menopause. By incorporating just 8 foods you may not have tried before, I hope to help you avoid the worst of the flushes/flashes and all that comes with The Change…
