Raw beginnings

One might think that heading into summer rather than autumn would be a better time to start learning about raw food ‘cooking’ but as I was to find out there is a lot more to a ‘raw’ meal than simple salads, and dishes can still be warm and hearty like the ‘falafels and cous cous’ we ‘cooked-up’ on my first raw food workshop.

Mind you, autumn in southern Spain can still feel like a hot summer’s day, so perhaps this is one place that is ideally … Continue reading

The health plan

Many readers will be familiar with our recent articles by Vanda Laktos, owner of health food shop Biocasa in Fuengirola, and passionate about healthy vegetarian food.

The oddest thing about the plant is the aroma of honey and lemon, from my own observation, … Continue reading

Quality of Life – 7 steps to perfect health part II: greens

A traditional doctor would say “take an aspirin, and call me in the morning”. Why not say, as Dr. Robert O. Young might, “take a cucumber, and call me in the morning”?

We know that fruits and vegetables are good for us and we should credit our parents for telling us to eat our greens and salads to grow big and strong, because they were right. To enjoy more energy in life it is a good idea to add more greens to the menu. But why … Continue reading
