ghee-11
Ghee - My Golden One In the past year I have taken to ghee like a duck to water (cliché intended) and clichés aside, I am the biggest fan of this humble product that has been used for around 5000 years. I use ghee as a food for health, for cooking, I spread it on my home-made low-carb, wheat-gluten-free, flax bread and mix it in my coffee. What is ghee - a type of clarified butter originating from India and used in Indian Ayurvedic cooking. The main difference between ghee and the clarified butter your Nan made is in the production process. Clarified butter is complete once water has been evaporated and fat separated from the milk solids. Ghee, on the other-hand, involves simmering the butter along with the milk solids to the point of burning/caramelising which gives ghee its aromatic and nutty taster. The Golden One Ghee is a superior...

 When Food Healed My Body - after listening to my inner-advisor instead of my cravings  “My inner advisor is dying to heal me.” ~ Astrid Alauda ~ After a recent bout of the flu, which left me debilitated for 2 weeks, my body went into rave-mode demanding a detox. Too ill to argue, I acquiesced and shaved back on all foods except **my-detox-vege-soup made primarily with cabbage, and snacks consisting of super-food fruits such as berries, kiwi fruit, paw paw and a small amount of bananas. Prior to falling prey to the dreaded lurgi, I had already cut down on a number of foods that acted more like poisons to my body than medicines, (thanks to the ‘eat right for your body type’ method – and NO I am not hear to sprout about that, it’s purely reference material) but over time I had (she says a little sheepishly) snuck a few baddies...

hermanbrot-500x284
My prayers have been answered – or something like that Finally a low-carb-high-protein-bread that doesn’t taste like cardboard! I like to keep low carb, I like to eat well and I love bread! I have played with numerous recipes in the hope of creating a low carb high protein bread and failed miserably way too often. Now I can have the best of both worlds thanks to the Herman Bot Bread which has a carbohydrate level of just 5%. For the non-red-meat-eaters, it is a great way to boost up on the 26% protein which healthily compares well with red meat at 30%.  The bread gives other breads a run for their money with their low GI factor with a certified Glycaemic Index of 24. This means it is supposed to assist in reducing appetite, weight loss, improving lipid profile, and significantly improving blood glucose control in people with diabetes –...

Exfoliant
  My Two Ingredient Exfoliate Some months back I made the health-promoting decision to eliminate processed foods from my eating regime, the benefits of which are endless (and that’s another blog). Before long, I looked into ways that I could change what I used in home and on my body. And so began the journey of supporting what I consumed by eliminating (where possible) products I used in home, especially that which I applied to my body. I love beauty treatments and I almost have a fetish for moisturisers as I love the feel of smooth skin, hence my exploration into home-made natural beauty products. Bi-carb soda and coconut oil have numerous uses in my home, and this includes being the ingredients in my home-made all natural two ingredient skin exfoliate. My home-made two ingredient skin exfoliate has too many pluses to ignore: Costs next to nothing Takes seconds to make...

 The Question of Too Much or Too Little Sleep Some people are night owls, others are early birds; some people say they need 8 - 10 hours’ sleep a night and others say they can run on 4 - 6 hours’ sleep. And of course there are the extenuating sleep circumstances where people suffer sleep deprivation through shift-work, babies, insomnia, illness, snoring partners etc. My Nan always said, ‘the more hours sleep you had before midnight the better you will feel.’ Another childhood influence said, ‘sleeping too late in the morning or past 8am would have you running tired all day.’ Both theories may well fall into the category of old wives tales but it does beg the questions - what is too much or too little sleep? Is there an optimum sleep time / quantity? How much sleep do we need? Are we getting enough or too much? What is...

raspberry
     My Tea of the Moment - Red Raspberry Leaf Tea Not Just a Pregnancy Tea - an Everyone Tea! My tea of the moment is the red raspberry leaf tea. I stumbled across this tea in a moment of panic after a recent bout of what I call “bad belly” AKA “tummy bug”, and it settled my symptoms down within a couple of hours. I had always known Red Raspberry Leaf Tea to be the pregnancy tea, but as I discovered in my bad belly moment, this delightful brew had far more to offer with a greater range of benefits to a greater range of people than pregnant women! [I want to establish something before going any further, red raspberry leaf tea IS NOT to be confused with the raspberry flavoured tea sold commercially – they are NOT the same.] I have been a black tea consumer forever, but...

"Live in rooms full of lightAvoid heavy foodBe moderate in the drinking of wineTake massage, baths, exercise, and gymnasticsFight insomnia with gentle rocking or the sound of running waterChange surroundings and take long journeysStrictly avoid frightening ideasIndulge in cheerful conversation and amusementsListen to music."~ A Cornelius Celsus ~   Modern Day Anxiety Approaches A spate of enquiries has prompted this blog on a subject that appears on the rise. The nature of the enquiries relate to feelings of anxiousness and how to manage anxiety in this modern day besieged by a plethora of anxiety triggers. Anxiety is a generalised term and covers an array of basic human emotions and states of being such as worry, uncertainty, apprehension, nervousness fearfulness etc. and can affect our behaviours, relationships, career and physiological systems – general well-being. Inability to manage stress and anxiety is believed to stem from lifestyle choices, environmental factors i.e. learned...
