I wasn’t sure if I liked mackerel, but I knew that for such a cheap ingredient, it was absolutely teaming with all the things I needed to eat more of, particularly EHA and DHA, vital for supporting brain function. I decided to marinade it in quite a strong sauce just in case, and I was amazed with how tasty it was! So punchy and rich, I am pleased I only had one fillet as two may have been a bit too much for me. I kept the dish light by Continue reading
This recipe is very similar to my Chicken bone broth, but with some slightly different aromatics to really enhance the beefy flavour of the bones used. I think it is really important to be able to adapt recipes in order to make use of what you have available, to be as efficient and economical as possible. I picked these bones up for free from my butcher. With a few little additions and a lot of time, this makes a cheap and nutritious broth. I know there is no such thing as a hangover cure, but if there was, this would be it!

It was such an easy recipe to do and made a great Sunday prep food ready for a week of work lunches. When I first put all the ingredients into a bowl, I did not have high hopes.

Intermittent fasting has many proven health benefits, but the main reason I do it is to give my gut a break from the continual task of digesting food, giving it time to do a clean-up before the onslaught starts again. Intermittent fasting is also said to send your cells into repair mode instead of build mode. Continue reading
I had cured salmon at the Grayshott Health Regime and I was amazed with how much flavour it had, even though it hadn’t been exposed to the carcinogenic smoke that smoked salmon relies upon for flavour. It is less slimy than smoked salmon but much more firm than cooked salmon, and is a perfect complement to eggs for breakfast in the morning. When I began researching cured salmon to see what it’s all about however, I really struggled Continue reading

It is also super flexible, you can interchange the greens for anything that is in season, and you can serve with all sorts of sides for a delicious meal you can scale up or down depending on how hungry you are. If you are past the first few weeks of healing your Continue reading
