It's a soup kinda day...soup is a great way to get extra vegetables into their diet..I add a handful of fresh spinach before blending an extra nutrient boost 😊🌿 Off for a walk in the rain and then home to soup and fresh bread 😊❤ #10aday#eattherainbow
Gorgeous blustery run with my girl. It is soo important to get outside at this time of year. Especially for those of you who suffer from SAD. Just promise yourselves 20 minutes a day, our 20 minute run turned into 60 minutes and now the endorphins are flowing! My dear Dad died 16 years ago today from heart disease..eating a healthy diet, keeping your weight in a healthy range are just 2 of the things you can do to protect you heart 😊❤❤❤❤
Pork stew ‘thing’ (I never follow recipes), packed with veggies, and a ton of green veg for on the side too. Easy healthy eating for after a crazy 12 hour day at work - heat it up and you have your #10aday all on one plate 😁 -
Brave some broccoli this morning.
@koonalife kick starts their day with a green broccoli smoothie from @joeandthejuice. Packed full of antioxidants and vitamins a daily hit of dark green veggies does your body some serious good. Paired here with a quinoa, kale and spinach #koonalife bar the plant protein scores a whopping 19g #vegansofzuri#repost

More pics from apple day in the Moss Valley. It's a special place to me, where I learn about biodynamic farming, market gardening, nature and community. Martin Bradshaw is a great inspiration to me who teaches me so much. Sometimes I get paid with food, sometimes with money but always love from nature!!! If you want food you can trust go to www.mossvalley-marketgarden.co.uk 👍🏼
Every October, Huw opens up the orchard for juicing, tasting and touring. It's such a great day, celebrating the best organic #Britishapples - if you knew what's sprayed on commercial apples you'd only buy organic. And don't get me started on the air miles!!!

Lunching on a huge plate of raw goodness while watching the storm ☔️⠀
In the bowl we have baby cos lettuce + baby tomatoes 🍅 + zucchini noodles 🥒 + turkey slices + avocado 🥑 SO much crunch and texture in this bowl from all the fresh raw veggies, which made it so satisfying to eat 🤗 ⠀
It was well needed after a weekend of hospital food and general meals lacking in veggies!! #healthylunch#healthyplate#healthydinner#eatclean#10aday#ntoi_ie#ntoi
Now, I realise this just looks like a green splodge on a plate but it was actually my breakfast! I've been doing a little experiment to see how many portions of fruit and veg I can get in (aiming for 10/12 per day). I was pleased with this effort (marinated tofu, half an avocado, broccoli, cucumber, coriander, watercress and rocket salad, followed by a handful of grapes) 5 in one meal.
Added eggs and spinach to last nights leftovers and a big mug of elderberry tea to help kick this cold. Glad I got my computer work done early this week so I can rest and snuggle the littles today.
My go to things for fighting or avoiding a cold:
Neti pot/nasal rinse
Lots of water
Lots of sleep (who am I kidding, I'm a mom...)
What's your go to's?
Capsules for today & my Hong Kong trip! 30 fruit,veg and berries everyday! Did anyone see save money good health Monday?we are supposed to get 10 a day now & only 1in 4 of us get 5 a day! #10aday#simplewithjp
I dropped into the kitchen @eastdulwichchef to check on my Ferments yesterday and saw the team preparing a salt cure for these beautiful salmon fillets. It looked amazing and I bet it will taste even better. I reckon a little bit of the Purple One, our red cabbage, beetroot, caraway Kraut would go amazingly well with this.
Fried garden potatos, leftover Italian sausage, peppers, mushroom and onions.
The past 2 days have been utter chaos here, crazy schedule, cranky kids and a multitude of homeowner headaches including the sewer backing up last night and to top it off I'm fighting a cold!😣 Needless to say, this is the first meal I've cooked today. Left over sausages that hubby cooked for lunch made a great addition to my go to comfort food tonight.
💚🌿SEASONAL FOOD 🌿💚
🍲 This was the starting point for the huuuge batch of root veggie stew that I have slow cooking in the oven at the moment. When I am really busy like I am this coming week I like to batch cook and put meals portioned up in the freezer so that I don’t have to cook from scratch when I get home from work.
✏️I will add the recipe for the whole stew up tomorrow. There are no fancy or expensive ingredients, just simple food that you can pick up from any supermarket 🛒🏪
Very excited today as I am now officially a qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist 😊...spending the afternoon finishing off my website and after a very autumnal run with the 🐶, treating myself to a bowl of stewed rhubarb, soya yoghurt and home made sugar/grain free granola ❤
Did you know that rhubard is actually a vegetable and is a great source of calcium as well as being packed full of Vitamin K, A, C, B and iron, potassium, phosphorus to name just a few! 🌿🌿🌿 #watchthisspace#londonnutritionist#10aday
2 big handfuls of kale
1 apple (russets are good here)
Juice with a masticating juicer
Whisk in 1 tsp chlorella powder
Chlorella is a blue green algae rich in phytonutrients, including amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorous, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins. Unlike spirulina, which contains an inactive form of B12 (despite many marketing health claims!), chlorella is thought to be a viable option for vegetarians and vegans looking to increase their B12 which is normally only available from animal sources. The only other significant source of plant based B12 is nori.
Chlorella helps detoxify heavy metals like mercury, and can even protect against radiation and chemotherapy treatments.
Great during any weight loss program too, to help flush out any toxins that were stored and then released from lost body fat. It has also been shown to reduce cholesterol and blood glucose levels. It’s not just those who may be overweight who need to consider their blood sugar levels - chronic stress, affecting so many of us, also raises blood sugar.
