As you may be aware, it was World Earth Day on Sunday. It is such an important day to recognize, especially at the moment when our planet desperately needs our help, but why it is not a week, a month or even a year I really don’t know. Having said that some companies are taking it upon themselves to extend Earth Day way beyond just one day. which is just what our planet needs, they will hopefully help pave the way for a cleaner greener world.I subscribe to...

Educating EatersWhilst waiting for the weather forecast last week, (I got a bit obsessed with the snow as I love it!) I heard a troubling piece of health news saying that obesity is now the most likely cause of cancer in the UK and has even taken over smoking.

I was chatting to my youngest son the other day (he’s 11) about breakfast. Pretty much every morning, without fail for a few months now we have both sat down to eat a bowl of cinnamon porridge, fully loaded with banana, blueberries, walnuts, raisins and a drizzle of date syrup.So our discussion was about the many health benefits we get from eating that one simple bowl of scrumptious porridge every day.
