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.

Thanks for the link to the video! I'll check it out.

Your skin looks terrific! :) I get quite a few comments from people that I look much younger than I am. Such a compliment and I credit my diet!
Thanks Molly - it's always nice when folks think we're younger!

Hope you enjoy the film!

I LOVED the film (as did Mike)! I'm going to have to purchase the book very soon. So much great stuff in it. They did a fantastic job. I'm also tempted to get the 12 dvd set, but will start with the book.
So glad you liked it Molly - thought you would!

There are so many great videos out there!

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 ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
