A Good Brew can soothe your worries……..

If only that was true…. where a brew can’t solve your immediate worries, the calming effect of the warm liquid shared with a friend can begin to make those worries seem less daunting.

Traditionally herbs have been brewed to provide inner healing, today certain teas can support your health.

I love the Vitabiotics teas especially the cleanse tea. I may be a nutritionist, but I am only human and succumb to tempting food indulgences. However, having my cleanse tea on standby in the cupboard I can help my digestive system regain its effective function.

Vitabiotics TEA+ is a new range of vitamin infused teas designed to help maintain general health and wellbeing. They have created a unique blend of vitamins, herbs, fruit and green tea with the aim to help in your daily wellness goals when needed most in a convenient, nutritious and delicious cup of tea.

  • Each box contains a 14 day routine (14 tea bags)
  • Selenium, biotin and vitamin C
  • Milk thistle, dandelion root & green tea
  • Natural apple & blackcurrant flavourings

Boost Your Mood

Being a mum is challenging at the best of times, though during school holidays even the most efficient of us can feel the strain, and experience a drop in mood.

Being a Nutritionist I appreciate that even those who eat a balanced diet can benefit from a boost every now and then, and I direct my clients to Higher Nature products. Why? because I like the transparency of the company and the majority of their products are natural hence reduce further disruption to our bodies at times of need.

There are 6 products listed under the Mood tab on the Higher Nature website.

Kale and Cabbage slaw with mustard vinaigrette
Recipe and image sourced from https://www.thespruceeats.com/

Ingredients

  • For the Salad:
  • 4 to 6 medium leaves kale (lacinato)
  • 1/2 medium head cabbage (green)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (pecans, or slivered or sliced almonds)
  • Salt to taste (kosher)
  • Pepper to taste (freshly ground)
  • For the Dijon Mustard Dressing:
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (grainy, or more, to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil (good quality extra virgin)

Method

  1. Toast the nuts, if desired. Arrange the nuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake whole, chopped, or slivered nuts in a preheated 350 F oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, checking and turning them frequently. Sliced almonds will take about half the time. Watch closely.
  2. Cut the middle rib out of each lacinato kale leaf. Roll the leaves up into a tight roll and slice them chiffonade-style into thin strips. Put the strips of kale in a large bowl. You should have about 2 to 3 cups.
  3. Cut the core out of the cabbage half and shred or chop the cabbage. Transfer the cabbage to the bowl with the kale.
  4. Toss the chopped nuts with the kale and cabbage.

Prepare the Dressing

  1. In a canning jar or bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, minced garlic, vinegar, and olive oil. Whisk or shake well. Add a dash of salt and some freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  2. Drizzle 2 to 3 tablespoons of the Dijon mustard vinaigrette over the salad. Toss the salad. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
  3. Serve with the extra dressing on the side.
