Are we skimming the truth? Feed Your Soul, December 16, 2014

The thought of going full-fat rather than skinny may make you sh-udder right now, but I’m hoping that you may change your coffee order after reading the below… The main difference to note between full fat and skimmed milk is that the latter is processed whereas the former is not. Processing milk removes all the fat and once this […]

Kefir, the feel-good food. Feed Your Soul, December 8, 2014

Kefir (pronounced kee-fer) is a fermented milk product originating from the Caucasus Mountains in Eastern Europe. The name alone says it all. Deriving from the Turkish word “keif”, it apparently translates to the ‘good feeling’ one has after drinking it. Made from any type of milk (cow, goat, sheep, coconut, almond or rice) kefir is combined with […]

I’m not a total natural beauty follower, however, this product not only works like a dream but is so natural you could actually eat it (or at least that’s what some say).

Meditation – the effort we make to turn our attention inwards Live the Life, November 30, 2014

Aside from the benefits that meditation offers, the main reason I schedule in a weekly meditation class (quite literally like an appointment) is because it’s the only time I’m actually forced to spend one hour doing nothing.
