food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

Raw food seems a bit of a faff, doesn’t it? I mean, all that soaking, sprouting, chopping, dehydrating,…waiting. Not to mention a heck of a lot of shopping. Don’t get me wrong, many of the raw recipes I see on Instagram, Pinterest and other blogs do look amazing. And, a quick eyeball of my occasionally filled in …

If you were to peruse my recipe index you would be forgiven for thinking that I am obsessed with breakfast, and granola. The former is true, but the latter, to be honest, is not. My granola-making efforts are largely for my daughter who, eating grilled kimcheese as happily as waffles or pancakes, is much more egalitarian …

Milkshakes for breakfast. Not quite what you might expect from food to glow. Kale shakes, like my kale berry smoothie  perhaps. But not a milkshake. And most certainly not one for breakfast. I have previously had a rant about terrible breakfasts, but not a word did I write about milkshakes. Who in their right mind …

I had hoped to come up with something profound to say on the subject du jour: New Year, New You. I might have gone on about fresh starts, turning over new leaves (leafs?), spring cleaning your diet/life/soul/refrigerator (maybe I should do the latter, if only as a good incentive to actually  do it).

Don’t you just love it when you come across something that does double, or even triple, duty? I’m not talking about moisturiser, or Swiss army knives (which if the latter is really swish will do about a 36 jobs, including scale fish and remove the  hook – cool Crimbo pressie?). As always, I am talking …

Also known as Bonfire Night, November 5 commemorates the evening in 1605 that 13 young men had planned to use 36 barrels of gunpowder to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul,” Jean Cocteau A short post this week, but with a recipe that warmly invites Autumn into the kitchen. If you have an apple tree go out and gather any windfalls; give them a scrub and a chop. You …

Hands up, who likes granola? Excellent, that’s most of you. But did you know that some of the granola we eat should really be re-classified as dessert? Despite its rather saintly image, most granolas are quite high in both sugar and fat. And we tend to eat rather more than the suggested serving size. Unless …

It’s el scorchio here at casa foodtoglow. Hens are lolling and cats are snoozing -and it’s only 10 am. But someone has to work around here so quick wee post and off to Maggies Centre for green tea and a good chat. My night-time eyeshades (sad, I know) were no match for today’s retina-searing dawn, …

UK television and radio news and programmes are dominated by tomorrow’s planned nuptials between Prince William and Kate Middleton. Hard news journalists and gossip columnists alike are united in their desire to wring every scintilla of Royal press office-fed ‘news’ in the hope of a new twist on the Big Day. Syrian ambassador to the …
