food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

What Does Your Fridge Say About You? As you can see below, my fridge is not much to boast about. It’s quite tidy inside and out, but it doesn’t really scream “food blogger” does it? It’s not heaving with delectable food samples, bottles of classy wine, and jars of homemade bits and bobs. The door isn’t …

After days of simple breakfasts like my beloved avocado toast (how cliché am I?), interspersed once or twice by a bowl of plain yogurt topped with homemade granola and slow-cooked fruit compote (rescued from the freezer), I fancied a change. It was a day off, after all. No make-up to put on, no matching shoes to find. The world …

I don’t know about you, but my spice cupboard{s} runneth over. Like the hall closet we had growing up, when I open the doors to my spice stash something inevitably jumps out. But now, instead of a balled up and rarely used coat falling at my feet, a bottle or jar finds itself in something I …

Along with the nut loaf and the veggie lasagne, veggie burgers have long been the butt of anti-vegetarian jokes. These have also been the claggy, yet somehow throat-stickingly dry, offerings of unimaginative restaurants attempting to cater for their non flesh-eating patrons. For years vegetarians ate these sad excuses for meals: nut loaves that disintegrated on the fork, requiring mashing up with …

Happy 4th of July! Once again, a holiday sneaks up on me and I am here, at the last gasp, tippy tapping away trying to write a relevant post. My excuse is that as an ex-pat American living in the UK we of course don’t celebrate the 4th. While the US is celebrating getting away from …

I don’t know if you are into gardening, or have the opportunity to garden, but certainly here in the UK we are having a good growing season. Drive anywhere just outside of cities and towns and you see fields and hillocks covered in vegetables plots, neat rows of climbing raspberries and sprawling strawberries, waving ripples of …

Despite my advanced (advancing?) age I love Instagram. Any downtime (standing in a queue, riding the bus) I will scroll away on my phone, staring happily at hazy beaches peopled with the lithe and the tanned; folks’ daft dogs coming way too close to the camera; style parades of impossibly impractical shoes and smart city shorts. Sigh. …

You may be glad to know I’ve calmed down from my mini Big Food/Big Pharma rant of last week. I got seriously close to popping a vein. I’m just glad I didn’t think of taking my blood pressure at the time of writing. I was a bit worked up, but once my post was edited for …

Kimchi is a new obsession for us in the food to glow family. We had our first taste a few years ago – love at first bite – but having made it a few times, and bought it many more, it is a not infrequent addition to our breakfast, lunch or dinner. Mostly as a flavouring, …

Egads folks. I am STILL without an oven. Well, a whole oven. The good bit of the oven where you put the big pots, and post in lots of trays of things to bake and roast. Sorry if I am being too technical, but I just can’t help myself. You know me – such a …
