Cuckoo for Coconut Oil

  You’ve probably heard more than enough about this topic already. It seems these days you can’t even think of a daily issue to which someone doesn’t say “I hear coconut oil’s good for that”. But let’s face it, when it comes to the world of superfoods, coconut is up on the rooftop with red cape billowing. It’s good for the body, it’s a skin moisturiser, a hair conditioner, a...

Generally feeling down in the dumps and reaching for the tub of ice-cream? Well, comfort eating might actually be the answer, so long as you know the foods to go for.

  "Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you've depended on more than half of the world." ~ Martin Luther KingThe Fairtrade Fortnight website opens with this quote.

Stay Healthy With...Chocolate?

  Now now, put down that Mars bar and let me clarify.   As we all know, chocolate has become the poster-child of unhealthy eating, sporting a one-two punch of fat and sugar right to your gut. Even the word just sounds sticky and gluttonous, doesn’t it? Go ahead, say it slowly. Cho-co-late.   …seriously, put down that Mars bar…yes, I’ll put down mine too.   But what if I...

The Magic of Spelt

  Some say it came to us as a gift from Demeter herself to the Ancient Greeks. Some say wheat and goat grass crossed paths thousands of years ago and gave birth to it as a superior, hybrid offspring. Some say it just makes a cracking porridge. All we know is it’s a mighty little grain that needs to be in your life. So, in light of our new range...

Healthy Breakfasts (that may not be on the menu).

  You're late for work. Again. Why? Why on earth you keep doing this to yourself? No matter how often you promise yourself to get a full night's rest, a first class ticket to dreamland (stopping off briefly at nightmare island), you still read pulpy romance novels until the small hours of the morning. Whilst it's true that you now know whether Melissa and James might have a future together, the cost is high; you're sleepy...

What In The World Is Asimbonanga?

  Anyone who has sat down with me over a scotched egg and chips knows that I'm not the most cultured person. Where I come from there are two types of tea: brown and white (which is just brown with added milk). Occasionally we might meet somebody drinking green tea, but we would whistle, look at our shoes and pretend it wasn't happening.   Imagine my surprise when I discovered the world of...
