How many do you have in your kitchen?

Superfoods 1

Chia seeds, goji berries, wheatgrass, white tea… the list seems to get longer every week as another ‘superfood’ hits the headlines.  Some less exotic everyday foods fit the bill, some may have even more antioxidants than the superfoods and many may already be in your fridge, freezer or cupboard.

Oat cuisine

I’m often asked what makes a good breakfast.  As with any meal, it should comprise balanced amounts of carbohydrate, fruit / vegetables, protein and fat.  There are many options available to fulfil those criteria however one of the simplest, and most nutritious, is porridge.


Porridge, and oat-based muesli, contains something called oat beta-glucan which is a soluble form of fibre.
