food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

Squash blossoms are the ultimate in edible flowers. Unlike nasturtiums, borage, violets and other pretty posies consigned largely to salad and ice cube duty, squash blossoms can be stir-fried, frittata-ed, casseroled, gratineed and, most notably, stuffed. If you have loads of blossom knock yourself out with a risotto or casserole, where they will add a […]

I often get funny looks when I suggest this at my weight management groups and my cancer nutrition classes. No one quite rolls their eyes, but I do feel a collective will not to laugh; a suppression of an exasperated “you’ve got to be kidding me.” I eat tomatoes like candy. At least at this time of […]

This post should have been subtitled, “How To Deal with a Glut of Greens.” The long and short of it is that I have planters and planters full of green things. Big green things. Sword-like black kale, great frothy tufts of curly kale (redbore and Pentland), umbrella-like rainbow and Swiss chards, two types of sorrel (Buckler leaf and […]

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 […]

I pride myself on being fairly adventurous when it comes to food. Within reason. I seriously doubt there would be a circumstance that would see me tucking into witchetty grubs or guinea pig. But funnily enough, despite knowing about coconut bacon for years I had until very recently never tried it, let alone made it. […]

Padding down the stairs, slippered and pajama-ed, with dark circles where blue eyes should be, Rachel does not catch my eager eye. Studiously avoiding me as she heads for her bathroom, she greets my overbearingly soprano, “good morning” with the contempt it deserves. A ‘humph’ I think. The bathroom door closes hard, the shower runs, the radio – […]

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 […]

  Not a month seems to go by when there isn’t yet more good news about food and health. This month it is once again the turn of the Mediterranean diet to bask in the scientific limelight. But before I get too excited and ramble on as is my norm (which I will no doubt do anyway), […]

A little late to the National Vegetarian Week party, but better late than never! Here at food to glow we are omnivores, but because of my work as a cancer health educator I know the health value of eating a plant-centred diet. And I try and practise what I preach. Most of my recipes are […]

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, […]
