Homemade fish fingers

Banana, cacao, almond smoothie
Commercially made smoothies and juices are pasteurised which means that all the goodness as well as the beneficial enzymes have been killed through high heating and you are left with nothing but a high-sugar liquid. Homemade smoothies can be packed full of fresh vegetables and fruit and are so good, they taste like pudding! Add: Golden flaxseeds (AKA linseed), maca, banana, cacao, raw almonds...

Why eat liver
Liver from a wild or organically-raised animal is one of the most nutrient dense foods we can eat. Liver (and other organs) are held sacred by many cultures and have been so for centuries. It was the lean muscle and flesh that we now so revere that was discarded as they lacked the goodness found in the organ meats. Even half a century ago, most of our grandparents were buying liver for...

Most table salt is poisonous to our bodies. Highly processed, it leaches calcium and other minerals out of our bodies and makes us bloated! Most people eat too much salt as processed foods are laden with it. Even pastries and sweet breakfast cereals. In moderation, unrefined salts are good for us. Dried in the wind and sun, the enzymes are preserved as well as around 84 trace minerals and...

It’s not what you eat, it’s what you can digest
What you will always find in our fridges

Aside from seasonal varieties, we almost always have something like the list below in our kitchens.

Start as you mean to go on
Make time to relax and sleep well. Sleep is when you detoxify, repair and rejuvenate. Sleep is when your body utilizes the good things you did for it and get’s rid of all the bad things you did to it. There should be some balance between times when you are being productive and times when you are resting. Your health really does depend on your ability to get enough rest and sleep. When we...
Fat doesn't make you fat
We eat a diet rich in good fats and so called ‘bad’ fats There is a MYTH that all fat (especially saturated fat) is bad! The human body is designed to absorb and use saturated fats from animals - not chemically-altered versions from plant matter as is widely advertised commercially. Good cholesterol from organic animal fat is essential to human wellbeing. Every cell of...
