Mindfulness Monday ... Being mindful is about being aware of your thoughts and feelings so let’s play the M & M Game. Buy a packet of Smarties and enjoy them while doing the following:
For every red one say one thing that makes you happy
For every blue one say one thing that makes you sad
For every green one say one thing that makes you angry
For every yellow one say one thing that makes you excited
For every brown one say one poor choice you have made and what you could have done differently
For every orange one say one good choice you made
Mindful Monday ... Today get in touch with someone who has made a positive impact on your life and thank them. Whether by email, text, phone call or in person - you'll be surprised by how much this small act of showing gratitude can mean to the person receiving it.
Mindfulness Monday ... Today - for the whole day - be aware of every time you use the word "I" in a sentence. This forces us to focus on how self-centred we are.
Today take a few minutes to appreciate how an object smells and makes you feel. It can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting – nothing is more memorable than a smell. [Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses]
Coffee beans ... baking bread ... perfume ... cinnamon ... What is your favourite smell?
People are often so busy they lead their lives running on autopilot and become a ‘human doing’ instead of a ‘human being’. Mindfulness is about slowing down and being aware of your thoughts, senses, feelings and the world around you. Want to know more? Check here each week for Mindfulness Monday to receive inspiration, tips and exercises that could help you to feel happier and healthier.
2021 begins in the same way 2020 ends but remember this ... We are not all in the same boat – we are in the same storm. Some have yachts, some have canoes and some are drowning.
Now more than ever, be kind, don’t judge and keep believing - the sun will come back out.
Salt is born of the purest parents – the sun and the sea (Pythagoras)
As the cold nights draw in there is nothing nicer than the glow of a Himalayan salt lamp - not only do they look pretty they attract moisture from the air and a speedy evaporation process produces negative ions.These can help to neutralise unhealthy positive ions created by pollen, dust and allergens leaving air cleaner and fresher. They come in all sizes and prices do vary
so you need to shop around to find the right one for you.
Are you Going Sober for October? Whether you take on the challenge for 14 or 21 days or go the whole hog and challenge yourself for the full 31 here is my top tip. OK I admit - I do love a glass (or 2 of Prosecco) but I also LOVE Belvoir Fruit Farm cordials which are infusions of fresh fruits, flowers and spices. Simply pour in some elderflower cordial, top up with sparkling water and pimp it with your favourite berries and …. voila – a perfect glass of nosecco! There are so many Belvoir flavours to choose – try one and let me know what you think.
It's World Mental Health Day and it's important to remember to always be kind ...
Eating a 'rainbow' - Day 7
Red and yellow and pink and green - purple and orange and BLUE .... which completes my rainbow of healthy eating suggestions and for this I must mention one of my all time, very favourite fruits – blueberries ..... which I just pop raw into my mouth for little explosive power nuggets of nutrition; topped onto pancakes, made into a muffin, added to breakfast cereals or stirred into yoghurt. How do you eat yours?
Eating a 'rainbow' - Day 6
Today, the rainbow colour is orange and - for me - a match made in heaven is carrots cooked in orange juice. Sunflower seeds (or you might prefer toasted sesame seeds) add a nutty flavour and are full of vitamin E ... and don't forget to top it off with some iron rich parsley. Oooo – and here’s a little foody fact.
Happy Monday .... new day, new week, new goals.
October is here and it’s Day 5 of - Eating a 'rainbow'
Grapes are one of my favourite fruits and I always choose the purple variety.
Do you know why? The darker the colour of food - the higher the antioxidant levels.
Purple foods not only look pretty - they have amazing healing powers because of a certain antioxidant called anthocyanin which mop up free radicals that are responsible for things like cancer and ageing. What colour grapes do you like?
What do you get when you cross and alligator with a pear? That's right - an alligator pear or better known as an avocado (because they are pear shaped and have bumpy skin like an alligator).
You can make a great dip (guacamole) by simply mashing an avocado
with olive oil, a bit of chopped tomato, a squeeze of lime and salt and pepper.
Eating a rainbow – Day 4 ... Peas, spinach, broccoli, green beans – there are so many green foods that can help you eat a rainbow. One of my favourites is avocado. Ok, they do have a high fat content but it is 'healthy fat' so is good for heart health and can help reduce risks for cancer and diabetes. Plus they are ram-jammed full of flavourful nutrition ... glowing skin, bright eyes and shiny hair for starters - both when eaten or used topically - and they are a great source of fibre so aid digestion and can support weight loss.
Do you know what the nickname is for an avocado? Check back and I will tell you and also give you a recipe for a dip which is real quick and easy.
Good morning World ... It’s the start of a new week and Day 3 of eating a rainbow. This time it’s the turn of the ‘pinks’ and what better ‘pink’ vegetable for you than rhubarb. It’s long pink stalks (but not the leaves which can cause serious illness) can be eaten raw or made into desserts, jams and a refreshing tea.
Rhubarb is a natural powerhouse - from treating Alzheimer's, fighting cancerous cells and promoting circulation through to supporting weight loss and digestion, strengthening bones, maintaining kidney health and preventing early ageing rhubarb.
That said – I think it’s a bit like Marmite ... you either love it or hate it. What do you think?
Eating a Rainbow - Day 2 - Yummy yellow ... Bananas have to be one of the easiest 'pocket foods' for a quick snack. They are full of potassium to help maintain normal blood pressure and protect against heart disease and strokes. And did you know - rubbing the inside of a banana can be used to help calm an itchy mosquito bite?
A cluster of bananas is called a ‘hand’ - do you know what a single banana is called?
So is a tomato a fruit or vegetable? In the culinary world tomatoes are treated as ‘vegetables’ because they are used in savoury rather than sweet cooking. However, botanically – because they formed from a flower and contain seeds – they are really a fruit ... well done if you guessed right. Keep checking back for more facts as we continue to eat a ‘rainbow’. Next time find out how 'yummy yellows' can help when you get an itchy bite.
As promised – let’s start eating a rainbow. You don’t have to be a footie fan to love the ‘reds’ – they are full of antioxidants that help mop-up potentially harmful free radicals. Strawberries, cherries, red peppers and of course tomatoes - which got me to wondering ... are tomatoes a fruit or a vegetable? What do you think? Comment below and I will tell you tomorrow.
Red and yellow and pink and green - purple and orange and blue ... I can eat a rainbow – eat a rainbow – and you can too! 'No' – I don’t mean devouring a full packet of Skittles. If you’re wondering how to get your 5-a-day of fruit and veg – keep checking my posts and I’ll show you how.

October 14 – 19 is Chocolate Week
In times of stress ... sadness ... celebration ...happiness ... boredom ... Friday night (in fact – any night) ... many of us turn to chocolate. And now it’s been proven by research from University College London, University of Calgary and Alberta Health Services in Canada that eating dark chocolate can lower your risk of depression.
White? … Milk? … Dark? What is your favourite chocolate?
A King’s College London and Ipsos MORI survey of 2,254 people revealed that 48% of respondents said they have put on weight during lockdown.
Do you want to lose some lockdown pounds? Here’s a little tip that might help... try eating off a red plate and you could cut down your calorie consumption by up to 40%
Why? ... Because the colour red is linked with danger so subconsciously we are less likely to overeat.
I love nuts and almonds are one of my favourite. They contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein and vitamin E. Eating 8 – 10 almonds a day can help prevent heart disease, lower cholesterol, fight wrinkles, help with weight loss and improve brain activity.
Do you know where almonds grow ….tree? … vine? … bush? … underground?
