food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

Gah, I am feeling my age. Not because of the ‘ooft’ noise I make when attempting to sit in a low chair – I’ve been doing that for quite a while. Not because of the way I automatically cup my left ear in loud restaurants. No, it is because until today I had not heard of …

I am not a gadget geek, but I do love my spiralizer. It is so loved that it has quickly earned its place on the countertop, along with my Froothie blender and juicer, my Magimix and of course my kettle (20 years and still going!). I have a small kitchen, so this is quite the honour. …

National Chocolate Week has come and gone and, despite promising another chocolate recipe for you last week, it never happened. But, it is never too late to post a healthy chocolate treat recipe, is it? Much has been written in the past few years about the benefits of chocolate. In fact, far from being something …

Fact or fiction for you: munching out of a box of cereal on the sofa; curled up with the cat; the latest Netflix series glowing before you; ice cream/wine/bag of sweets on standby {delete as applicable}. Sound familiar?

Like flat earth theory, alchemy, and the theory of the four bodily humors, we now know that grains do not always a cracker make. Kellie’s Theory of Healthy …

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 …

Don’t let the fancy name fool you, tartine is just French for ‘open-faced sandwich’. And I find it easier to say than the Danish smørrebrød, or the Finnish voileipä – the latter of which I have eaten when ages ago I did some work in Helsinki. Cured herring and butter as I recall. I ate it to be polite but …

So, this is what I’ve been blowing my sacred jar of coconut bacon on. Other than picking it straight from the jar, or sprinkling the toasty smoky shreds on top of another (upcoming) breakfast concoction, this is how I’ve been spending the bacon. It has everything I desire in a breakfast item: contrasting textures and tastes, banging …

  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), …
