Pumpkin Pie With Oatmeal Gingersnap Shortcrust

I remember... Read More

Why I Love My Smoothies + Juices

I am often asked whether I prefer juices or smoothies. Quite simply, I love both! I don’t think you need to choose one over the other. They both offer fantastic health benefits and have really helped me through some tough digestive issues over the years. Ultimately they provide a convenient hit of fresh nutrients – the perfect addition to a healthy diet. S M O O T H I E S A smoothie involves blending whole foods, like fruit, vegies, nuts, fluids, protein, into a liquid without... Read More

“I’ve designed my range of Organic Pea Protein & Pure Native WPI to be the purest form of protein supplement available on the market.

Roasted Cauliflower With Lemon Scented Garden Herbs and Pomegranate

Cauliflower was often served at our Polish dinner table when I was growing up. Mum used to steam it then sauté with home made breadcrumbs and browned butter then finish off with a little lemon.  These days I like a fresher touch, and this is one of my favourites this time of year. Lemon, fresh herbs and cauliflower – totally irresistible. This salad makes a simple meal I can whip up in a few minutes when I get home from work and any leftovers can be enjoyed for my lunch... Read More

It’s Immune Boosting time, so I thought I’d share my refreshing Wellness Tea – Muddled Marrakech Mint Tea !

SuperCharge Your Immune System Naturally

  It’s at this time of year that many of us feel under the weather and not quite our usual bouncy selves. It’s not just during the cooler months that our immune system needs some TLC, though.

Stocking up on fruit, vegetables and quality protein will set your immune system... Read More

Polish Chicken Noodle Soup ( ROSÓŁ)

Rosół  is a nourishing Polish soup that was regularly made by my mum when I was growing up.  It was the first line of defence if one of our family members got sick, but most of the time she made it because it was so delicious and made us feel comforted and warm when the weather was a little colder outside.  Mum served hers with fine home made noodles, but I like to change it around a little and use vegetable spaghetti.  I’ve made my soup using skinless organic chicken... Read More

Polish Sauerkraut

I was brought up on sauerkraut.  My Great Polish Aunt was a specialist sauerkraut maker and I remember us as kids always having it with our meals. The sour flavour comes from the process of lacto-fermentation, similar to the pickling of cucumbers. But instead of soaking the cabbage in a vinegary brine solution, sauerkraut preparation requires only salt and the lactic acid bacteria already present on raw cabbage. Sauerkraut produces amazing amounts of lactobacilli, a healthy... Read More

Greek Salad

When I was growing up, my great aunt used to grow her own lush vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes.  I remember bowls full of these glorious tomatoes on her kitchen bench, picked straight from the vine and the quirky colours gave them life and character.
