This is the time of the year in the northern hemisphere when rhubarb is growing profusely and, though this is described as a vegetable, it is mostly used for fruity desserts. Since moving to the countryside in England, we have taken on an allotment (part of a communal garden) and every plot boasts its own rhubarb patch so we have been given many bunches of these stalks, ensuring that we bake plenty of rhubarb and apple crumbles! The redder the stalk, ...

It is said that you can sometimes persuade a vegetarian to fall off the wagon by assailing their nostrils with the smell of bacon cooking!

I am not familiar with this vegetable so all the more reason to write about it, especially as there would appear to be very important anti-cancer compounds in okra. What are these anti-cancer compounds? A newly discovered lectin in common okra has been shown to kill 72% of human breast cancer cells (MCF7) in vitro, mostly by inducing programmed cell death. The okra extract has also been shown to slow the growth of breast cancer cells by 63%. While the research on okra ...

tweet blog image - bone broth

Nearly everyone you meet these days would seem to be suffering from an allergy or chronic condition or has a friend or relative who is. For example, 1 in every 17 children has some type of extreme food allergy. Why is this happening and why are some conditions reaching epidemic proportions? Could it be because of poor nutrition and should we be trying to start the new year by making a concerted effort to improve our own nutrition and lifestyle habits instead ...

It is the festive season (and don't we know it!) and even if you do not go in for alcohol often during the rest of the year, you might feel that a celebratory drink or two is more than justified in December.

I have been doing some research and I have found at least 4 that fit the bill (courtesy of www.gismodo.com). First is one known as ...

So it is decided that a blog post for a gluten free Thanksgiving dinner is a good idea seeing as it is that time of the year. But wait a minute – there is just one problem. I have never sat down to a Thanksgiving dinner and in fact I have never even stayed in the USA during that time of the year.
