Kombucha – a glass a day keeps the doctor away

I remember the time I first tasted Kombucha. It was February 2010 at David Wolfe’s Longevity Now Conference in Los Angeles. A friendly chap in the exhibition area working for a health food brand offered me a glass. I can’t say that it was love at first taste, but over the years I have really come to adore this lightly vinegary, sometimes fizzy, fermented drink, which is now my absolute beverage of choice. After a few false starts, we now make our own. Kombucha 101 Kombucha has a long and rich history that dates back over 2,000 years to China, spreading to Russia, India and Japan, where Samurai warriors enjoyed the benefits. It is now enjoyed around the world and is again gaining momentum. The best quality Kombucha (kom-boo-cha) has been cultured for 7-10 days, and  provides a wealth of health-giving microbes in every sip. It’s

How Detox Your World Changed Mine Part II

Over a decade ago now, I stumbled upon a book that opened my eyes. It was called ‘Detox Your World’, by Shazzie. By the end, I felt like my body was swimming in chemicals and poisons gathered from the processed foods I was eating, the water I was drinking, the mobile phone I was using. I realised that I even had substances in my mouth from dental work that could have been poisioning me. I remember feeling anxious about the health risks I had exposed myself to, completely unaware of the risks they posed! So, with knowledge came power and I decided to take steps to detox my world, and introduce a more systematic approach of cleansing and detoxing my body to reduce the health and performance risks an overexposure to toxins can post. I took the approach that it’s better to do more things right, than everything right as

Kale, Spinach and Wild Rocket Smoothie – an amazing recipe!

An all- kale smoothie could take a bit of getting used to as it's an acquired taste, so I have been experimenting with my blender, to find something really tasty and very green. The thing with experimenting is that you need to have a few disasters before you hit a success! For instance, two weeks ago, my green soup was filled with the most wonderful ingredients, but alas, together the taste was quite awful to be honest. It was the same with my first few kale smoothies. However I learnt from the 'experiment' and today I prepared a wonderful green smoothie that was packed with nutrition and tasted fantastic, so here are the ingredients. The key is to balance the greens to your taste palet. Rocket packs a peppery punch and kale is a strong greensy flavour so if you're a beginner, go heavy on the spinach instead as it's
