food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

  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 […]

“Oh, thrice and four times happy those who plant cabbages.” Francois Rabelais, 16th century French writer M. Rabelais might now be in the minority with that opinion, but from a health standpoint, he’s spot on. Cabbages have been cultivated for at least 6000 years, probably originating from wild, non-head forming greens (acephala), of which modern […]

The past couple of weeks have been full of more ups and downs than is usual for me. Nothing major, just stuff that could be done without. And really, as of today (I started this post yesterday), I feel the stress ebbing away to a manageable trickle. I am naturally a person who likes things […]

Despite the clearly undisguised green of this green smoothie, I pretty much guarantee that once sipped even the the most stridently anti-greens guy or gal will at least say, ‘hmm, not as bad as I thought it was going to be.’ Score! If they are actually scared to try it either say 1) ‘will you […]

I realise that some of you may be reclining on the sofa digesting a rather large meal. Feet up, hand on distended belly, telly at full volume (to drown out the clattering of a million dishes being cleaned in the kitchen). You may be kicking back waiting for a second wind; after all,  Auntie Jean’s […]

This is my science-updated take on an old Ayurvedic treatment beloved of Indian grandmothers. Treatment for what, you may wonder. Just about everything. Although clinical evidence supporting its cure-all reputation is scanty (not many big studies have been funded), what is around looks very promising. Very promising indeed. And with 14 centuries of culinary and […]

Watermelon in a salad is nearly as satisfying as chomping down on a chilled, ripe solitary slice. Nearly. This is a salad for when watermelons are at their peak, and perhaps when you are satiated with them au naturel. Like ripe peaches, so heavy and plump that biting into them sends their honeyed juices cascading […]

“Hath Britain all the sun that shines? day? night? Are they not but in Britain?” Cymbeline, Act 3, Scene 4, Lines 136-7. By William Shakespeare. The three weeks of unalloyed golden heat have come to an abrupt end. And for some, not a moment too soon. This was a most un-British of heatwaves: lasting, parching, […]
