Cooking with unprocessed wholefoods including a good source of protein, carbs, good fats and plenty of fresh organic produce. For us that means locally farmed muddy veggies grown on the south downs.
Protein is essential for building strong bodies, did you know that all amino acids originate from plants? Protein rich foods include tofu, tempeh, beans and lentils! You may be surprised to know that a baked potato contains 2-3g of protein per 100g.
Carbs are the fuel for our bodies. Complex carbohydrates such as organic, brown rice, quinoa, corn, potatoes, amaranth and even a proper loaf of bread, like from our bakery. Whole grains are also rich in B vitamins, which helps to give us the energy we need to keep going all day.
Small quantities of good fats such as avocados, unprocessed extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil, nuts, seeds and omega fatty acids are not only essential for our bodies, but are great for brain function.
Eat A Rainbow!
Enjoy the vibrant delight of organic, local produce by eating a rainbow. From the heart-healthy reds of strawberries to the immune-boosting oranges of sweet potatoes, embrace a variety of colours. Greens like spinach offer vital nutrients, while blues and purples in blueberries contribute to antioxidants for brain health. Incorporate yellows from bananas and bell peppers for vitamin C, and round off with the wholesome earthy browns of whole grains.
Choosing local and organic not only enhances flavour but supports our local economy and reduces your carbon footprint and environmental impact.
Let your plate be a canvas and the fruits, veggies and grains be your paint!
Coughs, colds, and sniffles are more likely to affect you if your immune system is sluggish. If you do happen to fall ill, natural treatments often prove to be the most effective. As the seasons change, so do the needs of your body, with winter being a critical time due to the prevalence of illnesses.
The average adult experiences the common cold 2-4 times a year, while children may face it 6-10 times, depending on age and exposure. Typical symptoms include nasal congestion, sneezing, cough, sore throat, and fever.
During the winter months, colds and flu become more prevalent. This can be exacerbated by physical and emotional stress, both of which are known to weaken immunity and increase susceptibility to infections.
Maintaining a robust immune system is achievable by incorporating essential nutrients like Vitamin C, D, and Zinc. Additionally, stress reduction through light exercise, meditation, yoga, and even cold water exposure has become a popular approach for many. These practices can significantly contribute to overall health, especially during the winter season when illnesses are more widespread.
Top Tips: Viridian supplements, Mushrooms like Chaga, a diet rich in fresh organic produce.
Good health often originates from a healthy gut, but our Western lifestyles frequently jeopardise gut health. Achieving and maintaining good gut health involves consuming a balanced diet rich in a diverse range of seasonal, fresh, and organic produce. However, navigating this journey may require some assistance, and that’s where probiotics play a crucial role.
Consulting with our knowledgeable Bodycare team can provide valuable insights into probiotics and help you identify the most suitable option for your needs. For instance, S. Boulardii, a beneficial yeast, acts as a natural enemy to ‘bad’ bacteria like Candida albicans. It can be particularly effective in preventing issues like ‘Bali-belly’ or ‘Delhi-belly,’ commonly known as travellers’ diarrhoea.
