Red Meat – to eat or not to eat

Red Meat - to eat or not to eat

  The age old debate over whether humans should eat red meat or not, has divided society for centuries. Whether you choose to eat red meat or not is a very personal decision.  For some avoiding red meat is based on ethical and animal welfare reasons, for others it’s because they simply feel better on a meat free diet, whilst others swear they cannot function without it. The truth is, when it comes to the biochemistry of our bodies, we are all different.  To a certain extent our bodies response to red meat is influenced by our blood type in addition to our microbiome – the bacteria … Continue reading

Out Of My (food) Comfort Zone...

I’m in the US right now and so far I’ve travelled 7 cities in 14 days, so if  jet lag, followed by jumping planes, trains and automobiles every couple of days hasn’t been enough to upset the apple cart, contending with trying to find real, whole food on the run in some places, has been.  When I travel, I try to eat just like I do back home  – the same as I recommend in my book, Eat Yourself Healthy.  My digestive system has grown accustomed to it’s usual Green Goddess juice  or super food power smoothie first thing of a … Continue reading

Haloumi and avocado boats

Haloumi and avocado boats

  Vegan – Vegetarian – Sugar Free – Dairy Free – Low GI – Medium GI I made this dish up one day after staring aimlessly into my fridge wondering what on earth I was going  to eat for lunch!  When suddenly inspiration was born from the slab or haloumi and coz lettuce hiding amongst the jars of various condiments.
