Superfood Salad

October 10, 2021|0 Comments

We like to have one of these amazing, nutrient-dense salads on the go during the summer (and the winter, for that matter), so we make enough for a few days and keep it in the fridge. We use quinoa (a complete-protein grain with a lovely crunchy texture), lashings of olive oil, lemon juice and rind (the rind is packed full of healthy phytonutrients), along with various other superfood ingredients for a good dose of vitamins and other nutrients. Add your own healthy ingredient ideas in to the recipe below to ring the changes.

Statins – friend or foe?

December 3, 2020|1 Comment

Have you or a family member been prescribed a statin? Highly likely if you're into middle age - over 6 million people in the UK are on the drug, and Pfizer's Lipitor is the most profitable drug in the history of medicine.

In 2014, NICE (the UK's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) revised their guidelines on when to initiate statin treatment, [...]

A recent study found that people with higher intakes (through diet and supplementation) of vitamins A, D and E have fewer respiratory complaints. This was picked up by multiple media outlets, and even the nutrition-skeptic UK government Health Secretary has now ordered a review into vitamin D after dismissing its benefits. But while the new official interest in essential micronutrients for health protection has to be welcomed, it is still exasperatingly myopic to those of us who like to look at the big, holistic picture. I am not a fan of picking out a few nutrients. I think it's a [...]

Treat or trick?

October 31, 2020|0 Comments

We've all seen (or at least heard about) those people back in March this year who were panic-filling their trolleys with fizzy drinks and "goodies" from the snack aisles to keep the kids happy. And tonight, on Hallowe'en, the double nightmare of sugary treats and throwaway plastics sends chills down the spine. These treats are well-intentioned. Of course no-one would dream of poisoning their children intentionally or setting them up for chronic disease. But unintentionally, this is what is happening every day all over the Western world and in developing countries. In 2016, an NHS survey estimated that 16 percent [...]
