Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha and kimchi might seem like a trendy new health fad but they have actually been a staple part of traditional diets for thousands of years.
One kind of fermented food that I have experimented with recently is kefir. I personally like water kefir rather than the dairy based alternatives. I am no expert but after a little experimentation I ended up with a full blown kefir factory in my kitchen with jars gently bubbling on every surface. Here are some notes from my own experience and some helpful sources that I used.
This gives me the perfect opportunity to big up the nutritional benefits of the pumpkin. My local supermarket has been totally cleared out of all pumpkins large and small, and I guess most of them will end up being carved and used as lanterns. However, this delicious vegetable offers lots of potential on the nutrition front, so great to use them in cooking as well
For some reason I have been getting lots of interest lately in the Metabolic Balance weight loss programme. These spikes of interest are usually down to some type of celebrity endorsement. Sam Smith and Boy George have both helped to raise the profile of the programme in the past. I am not sure quite sure who is behind it this time around but I will put money on it some high profile person has attributed their dramatic weight loss to the Metabolic Balance. Is the plan right for you?
There is definitely something about hitting your 50's, at least for me that was the case. Suddenly I became more focussed on the whole business of ageing or more importantly not ageing. I don't mean worrying about wrinkles or the sudden appearance of grey hair (grrrrrrr). I mean how to age well in a 'be disease free, able to leap around full of energy embracing life 100% AND with a full set of marbles'.....sort of way.
