We are what we eat

Our bodies are made of what we feed them. Never before has it been so important to look after our bodies than now. What we put in will be the fuel for energy, regeneration of cells and our bodies defences system. I try and make all our food from scratch. To make one’s food is […]

Different eggs

One tin of chopped tomatoes. Place in a large frying pan. Add a large pinch of salt. Bring to a hot simmer. Add four eggs (enough for 2 people). Reduce heat to very low, cover and leave until eggs have cooked to your taste. Serve with fresh bread, chips or on their own.

waste not . . . . Friday

there is no such thing as throwaway A couple of nights ago, I watched, for the second time (TV appears to be full of repeats these days) a program about our waste, about stuff that had been thrown away 50 years ago and how on digging it up they discovered that most of it was […]
