  4. Create a Health Restaurant at Home
    Create a Health Restaurant at Home

    We all love our fresh grub, but with busy schedules, short shelf lives and the occasional pandemic, sometimes frozen food is the way to go! You might be worried that frozen meals and ingredients just don’t have the same nutritional value as their fresh counterparts, but that’s just not the case. In fact, most frozen fruits and veggies are harvested at peaked ripeness and immediately washed, blanched and frozen, meaning that they arrive at your doorstep bursting with flavour and goodness! On top of that, buying frozen reduces food waste both in the supermarket and your home.

What do these terms actually mean and how important are they when it comes to honey? 
  40. Repairing Leaky Gut Syndrome by Sonja Hindley
    Repairing Leaky Gut Syndrome by Sonja Hindley
    Leaky Gut Syndrome describes a condition where the intestinal lining becomes more porous. The medical term is 'hyperpermeable intestines'. This means larger, undigested food molecules and other forms of waste that your body normally doesn't allow through, can flow into your bloodstream. It also includes bacteria (good and harmful), toxins, and food antigens (inflammatory agents), yeast, and other forms of waste particles to enter the blood stream. The result is wide spread and chronic inflammation that can initiate an over reactive immune response in the body.

  46. What Makes Organic Produce Different?
    What Makes Organic Produce Different?
    The conscious consumer is focused on food quality, food-safety and how ethically food is produced. Recently an American reporter interviewed a number of consumers at a well known organic supermarket chain in the U.S. He asked them what they think the word 'organic' means. It was no surprise that many of them didn't have a clue or had such a warped view of what certified organic produce is one wonders why they shopped for organic in the first place. To demystify organic, we explain what the promise of a Certified Organic Product really means; where it comes from, and how it is produced.
