Everything you need to know about Peanut Butter

2 Posted by in Food & drink, Health and Wellbeing on January 8th 2015

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI don’t know about you but I’ve always thought peanut butter was a kind of treat food, I associated it with the likes of chocolate spreads and I’ve only ever eaten it in Reese’s Pieces, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Peanut Butter M&Ms (can you see a trend here…) and I’ve never dreamed of trying a peanut butter and ‘jelly’ sandwich. However I’ve recently learned that peanut butter can be good for you, and I’ll tell you exactly why.

food-unwrappedDid you catch Food Unwrapped with Jimmy Doherty on channel 4 last night? I’d thoroughly recommend watching it, if you missed it you can catch up on 4OD here. The show looks at dieting as it’s the time of year the dieting industry goes crazy with all sorts of weird and wonderful magic new diets which promise miracle weight loss results, quickly and without having to strain yourself with more exercise or cutting down the amount you eat. At this time of year there isn’t really much emphasis on just eating more healthily, with a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Mixing up your milk: What are your options?

0 Posted by in Dairy free, Health and Wellbeing on December 23rd 2014

Milk Alternatives

The majority of people in the world have some form of cows milk intolerance or allergy, but with dairy used in so many things, giving it up can at first seem difficult.
Part of the fear surrounding going dairy free is knowing what to replace it with. There’s also an assumption that without milk, we’re unable to get the calcium intake that we need.
So what are the real facts?
Taking dairy out of your diet won’t leave you deficient as long as you have plenty of green leafy vegetables, soybeans, tofu, soy drinks with added calcium, nuts, anything made with fortified flour, sardines and pilchards.
What’s more, there’s actually a growing body of evidence that dairy isn’t crucial for bone health, with researchers at Harvard observing that subjects who drank dairy had an increased risk of hip fracture.
For lovers of all things dairy, there are also plenty of alternative milks out there to replace cows milk with so you don’t have to say goodbye to some of your favourite foods.
Here’s a look at some dairy-free milk choices.
