Eat To Live

We've wanted to see this film for a long time & we finally found it today. 
We have both the books written by the main guys - Drs' Esselstyn & Campbell, which have been life changing.

You can find the film here: 

Hope you enjoy it!

Ooooh, I have been wondering if that would be released. I heard about it a while ago, but couldn't find any way of watching it.

I think tonight is sorted.

Thanks for posting the link. I look forward to hearing what you think of it.
Hi Becky,

Same for us, we've searched for it several times & found it at last!

The film really confirms to us why we are doing what we do! For anyone thinking of becoming vegan - it will no doubt push them in the right direction... Which is great!

Hope you enjoy it & let us know what you think!

I know I am going to enjoy this..I've just out the kettle on....

I loved the Body Ecology film you sent me too, I'm sure I shall be watching it again, there was so much wisdom to take in.

Have awarded you the 'one lovely blog award' - please only accept if you want to xx
Such a shame it's not more available over here... I wrote to the folks behind the film last year to find out when we will get to see it in the UK & they said there was no interest or demand for it!

They need to get it out there & give people something to think about!

Yep, another great film!

I'll post some more soon - there's loads out there!

Thank you Mrs Thrifty!

We are very honoured!

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx





Nettles

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...


Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…
