It’s lambing season so spring is the perfect time of year to be eating this nutritious red meat. Like the broad bean in this recipe, it too is a great source of iron and B12 but iron from meat is more easily absorbed than from its plant cousin. Iron is essential...

Chilli peppers can spice up your love life and much, much more!

We, as a nation, love ‘foreign’ foods.  This is possibly because of their exotic aromas and the fantastic array of spices used to enhance their flavours.

There are over 200 herbs and spices on this planet but on average, we only use about 5 of them in the UK!


Herbs and spices are Mother Nature’s medicine cabinet.   In fact, when I worked in the jungles of Belize, the local people used the herbs from the rain forest for their every day needs such as for snakebites, fever, antiseptics, contraceptives, headaches etc – it was fascinating to see first hand how they relied on their surroundings to survive and used their knowledge of the medicinal powers available.

Are you one of the many who are detoxing this January?

Well, here’s some food for thought! Did you know the average person uses about 10 products a day?

This means that everyday on average we absorb about 126 different chemicals through our skin. How?  Lead is often used in red lipstick, aluminum in deodorants and flame retardants on our furniture. Then we drink the BPAs that seeps into our coffees from the plastic cups and eat the pesticide residue that is on our unwashed fruit and veg. This is in addition to all the shampoos, toothpastes, moisturizers, hair dyes etc which that all contain chemicals.


So what does this mean to our bodies?

Celeriac – Beauty and the Beast.

In winter, Mother Nature  provides us with a power house of nutrients needed to protect us against the colds and flus that are flying around this time of year.  

Celeriac is quite an ugly, knobbly, root vegetable. Yet, behind it’s warty exterior, there is a treasure trove of surprises.

Today, I want to share with you a recipe that I cooked last night for friends.

I had spent the day travelling so I was looking for something that was effortless to prepare and flavoursome. Flicking through an Olive Magazine on the plane, I came across  this recipe. It ticked all the boxes and looked really easy, so I decided to give it a go.  It was such a success that I wanted to share it with you!

Naturally High wishes you all a very berry summer

 It’s that time of year where berries are in abundance. They epitomize summer and are fresh, juicy and tasty!

 Berries and cherries are nature’s natural pharmacy. They are packed with antioxidants, giving them those beautiful deep colours of blues, purples and reds. These antioxidants have a myriad of health benefits: anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal to name just a few.  

These small fruits are also rich in polyphenols, which protects the fruit from natural preditors while growing. Research has shown that these compounds protect against Alzheimers, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes as well as having anti-cancer properties.

So, let’s meet these berry wonders……

Feeling fabulous inside and out.

Begin on the inside and work your way out!

As a nutritional therapist, I have seen how people's lives can blossom when they adapt their diet to support their individual needs. It gives them more energy, a greater sense of wellbeing and a zest for life.

When we feel alive, we have more confidence and exude positive energy from within.

But it is also so much fun to feel fabulous on the outside too! Julia Vandenburg at the House of Colour in Twickenham ( helped me do just that!

As a style consultant, she showed me what colours suited me best with my skin tone and incorporated these colours into my make up. She wanted me to glow or "pop" as Julia says! And she was right! My face really did "pop"! Using these tones, Julia also showed me what style of clothes suited me best for my figure, height and weight emphasizing all the best features (and hiding the other parts!)

Wow, did it make a difference! I started to feel great in what I wore and felt confidence in everything I did. Julia is brilliant – she is brutally honest and won't let you put something on if it doesn't do wonders for you! Her passion is infectious and you leave her consultations walking with a confident feel good stride!

On a practical side, knowing what colours suit me, made a big difference to my wallet. I no-longer buy clothes that I never wear and everything in my wardrobe goes together – great when packing a suitcase!

Feeling good inside and out can change your life forever!
