Eating with the Seasons

By Lela Rabie

Whether we are aware of it or not, most of us probably eat seasonally to a certain degree by choosing the fruit and vegetables which are most available, and most reasonably priced, at different times of the year.

Organic Easter

Easter time always brings back fond memories of  an easter egg hunt in the garden as soon as the sun was up, big family lunches and enough chocolate to last a year, except it never did! Having grown up in a largely countryside setting, we were always naturally exposed to an environmentally friendly lifestyle, living close to the Earth and eating healthy and wholesome foods. Organic was not a catchphrase back then and when, as a young adult, I moved to a city environment, I was truly surprised to find that not all foods are created (or manufactured) equal.

Wheat Alternatives | Wheat Free Diet | Gluten Free

By Lela Rabie

In modern society many people are choosing 100% wheat-free diets or diets largely wheat-free, some out of necessity due to coeliac disease or a wheat intolerance, others merely to add more variety to their diets. However, what does one use to replace wheat? Below are three different grains which can be added to a balanced diet as alternatives to wheat. Please note that not all 'wheat-free' grains are suitable for coeliacs as they may still contain some gluten. Always consult with your personal nutritionist before changing your diet in any long term way.
