Lemon Grass

Lemon Grass and Ginger tea is probably the most potent antioxidant and cancer fighting tea you could drink.

Smash some lemongrass and put in boiling water with some freshly cut ginger and boil for 15 minutes. Strain and drink it either as it is or with some honey.

It also help with intestinal problems and digestion not to mention provide an aromatic scent through out your home.

Here is something you may not know about Parsley!

It has three times the Vitamin C of Orange and twice as much Iron as spinach. 2 table spoons of it will provide 150% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin K. It is also super rich in Folic acid.

So I have created my own special pesto sauce that you can use either with pasta or over salad to give you a super healthy option and an alternative to the traditional pesto.

2 bunch of Parsley
1 bunch of coriander
1 bunch of mint
1 clove of garlic
a hand full of pine nuts
half a hand full of cashew nuts
juice of 1 lemon
Juice of half a lime
Half a tea cup of olive oil and half a tea cup of corn or other oil

Put everything in to a blender add salt and pepper for seasoning and blend.

you can make large quantities and keep in the fridge or divide them in to smaller portions and freeze them.

Winter Blues

In winter we all get the blues and rightly so. Unless we are lucky enough to live in a warm and sunny climate we rarely see the sun through out the winter. It is totally normal not to want to wake up in the morning when what we wake up to is a dark damp and cold start to the day!

Depression and feeling blue are common side effects of winter and the lack of Sunshine.

We get the majority of our Vitamin D from exposure to the sun. so the reduction in our exposure during the winter  means that our Pituitory glands do not function as normal and therefore we feel more hungry than usual and so we put on winter fat.

The way to combat this is to increase the intake of Oily fish and to take Vitmin D suppliments. It also helps to walk out doors a bit more than one would want to because although it may be cloudy or rainy and grey the sun's rays still do come through. 

Failing all the above why not try and schedule a sun break in the winter every year to give your self the health boost needed in the cold winter months.

White Fruits and vegatables

I have recently recovered from a cold, which normally would have left me with a prolonged coughing phase, however I have for the first time eliminated that from the equation all together and with out any medication.

I have used White vegetables and fruits in order to combat prolonged sickness through colds and flu and to balance and boost my immune system.

Every one knows that Vitamin C helps and assists in over coming common colds, however you will find that these days Vitamin C alone is not enough.  Try the following with your food and use them raw in your salads.

Mushrooms, White Onion, Cauliflower, Ginger and Turnips.

They contain Beta-Glucans which balance and boost the immune system. They also assist White Blood cells. You can use all the above mentioned raw in salad or you can make them in to soup. what better way to recover quickly without all the strong medications out there.

What to have Before exercise

Before my run today I am having Beet root salad with Fennel and Lime.


Beet root reduces the amount of Oxygen the body requires for exercise by around 20 to 30%!!
Which means that you feel less exhausted during your exercise. That followed by Green tea which raises the Metabolic rate means that you burn more fat and feel less tired..

The perfect combination every time.

Other benefits of Beet root are that it is rich in Vitamin's  A,C, B6, Calcium, Iron Folic Acid and Fiber.
Beet root is rich in Betacyamin which gives it the rich Purple colour. It is a very powerful Cancer fighting agent and known to protect against Colon Cancer and Liver disorder.

Use beet root on its own, in salads or juice it with lime and mint.
I have created a range of cocktail juice for before and after exercise for Red Dragon Gym.

Anti Wrinkle Creams

Do Anti Wrinkle creams really work?

Research shows that creams and Oils really only penetrate deep enough to have an effect on the surface of the skin, and that real change in the skin has to come from within. So the answer has to be No.
Your diet and what you eat is very important if you are going to make any real change to the condition of your skin. Expensive Creams are only beneficial to their manufacturers as they bring in Big profits.

So get down to the super market and stock up on fresh vegetables and fruits instead!
