All in Health and Nutrition
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.
We're likely to eat a shocking 6000 calories on Christmas Day, as well as an extra 500 calories every day on the run-up to the holiday, which starts earlier and earlier each year. By the time we reach New Year's Eve, we could be wearing an extra 5lbs around our tummy..........
Have you noticed that when there's a a major change of season, we often feel the urge to de-clutter our wardrobes, offices & homes? A good many of us also like to de-clutter our bodies at the same time. I'm one of them. Every Spring and Autumn Equinox I try and do a longer fast than normal. it's a naturopathic thing I have done since training as a Nutritionist, oh so long ago.
If you're a regular reader, you'll know how much I love trying out new recipes. Especially Jamie Oliver's recipes. I love him! He's so enthusiastic and cares so much about the health of the nation that I always check his site online if I have something to cook and am not sure how to do it. And this one's healthy, quick & oh so tasty.
Well, that got your attention, didn't it?! I in 3 women suffer from the odd leak, especially those who have had children, from spring chickens to silver foxes. Although I haven't had babies, I have always suffered from a weak bladder and occasionally have just peed myself I've been laughing so much. The first time was when I was 17 years old, in the street! Thank goodness I was wearing tights. Nowadays, although the urges are worse, I have followed all of my own advice below and listened to my doctor, so it's only an odd trickle.
