Hungry For Change



If you consume a lot of processed foods then please watch this film: 


It's only available to watch for just over 24 hours, so don't miss it.

Jason Vale is in the film, he is the author of several juicing books...


I first came across this book in St Austell library & the juices are fantastic.

We go through phases of juicing lots & then not at all, but we love drinking fresh vegetable juices - though we hate the waste... We do compost it & have tried simmering the pulp & using the liquid as stock, but it tastes odd to us.

I've been very interested in raw foods since the 90s, when I came across a Leslie Kenton book in a charity shop. We started drinking juices with either spirulina or wheatgrass twice a day, but we've never fully embraced a raw diet - we love our cooked food too much! Though I do believe that raw organic vegan food is the best way to heal the body.  


From the same charity shop, again in the early 90s - I bought my first & favourite vegan recipe book...

It's covered in ingredients & is falling apart...

I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to eat better & learn more about cooking whole grains & pulses (legumes). The recipes are simple to follow & it's all just good wholesome grub. There are charts for grain cooking & sprouting, lots of nutritional advice & I've used the book hundreds of times!
I especially love the roast recipes & there's lots of them... Nut roasts, bean roasts, lentils, tofu...

 Anyway, don't forget to watch the film:

They discuss not only food, but face creams too & how people spend so much on them, but if you eat healthily - you won't need any face cream...
I used olive or hemp oil on my face for years & when we stopped buying oil - I bought some face cream from the health shop.
 It ran out months ago & now I just use soap & water - that's it!

My skin has never felt so good!
(Ignore the chicken neck)

It must be the tablespoon of ground linseeds (flax), hemp & chia seeds we take every day!

Time to go... Sime will be on his way home from a gig & I haven't washed up from dinner yet... Not that he minds, but I do!

Night, night.

Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend.



We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays.


The view from the barn across the land.

The barn is made from straw bales.

The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats.

The outdoor solar shower.
The compost loos.

One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right.



The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space...

And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us.


We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea.

Love Kay and Sime xx


Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

For two weeks due to the need for time off...
We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
See you soon!
