as many of you are aware the past 12 months have been an amazing journey for me. i have changed what my family and i are eating and we are feeling soooooo much better for it.
basically, we had a pretty good diet but when i really examined it, i realised that although limited there were some processed foods creeping in… these came in the form of some wheat products and soymilk.i was suffering from allergy type symptoms and not sleeping as well as i could and just knew this was all due to a low-grade inflammatory response in my body. something had to give!!!
i bought a thermomix, (and no i don’t think or expect everyone to run out and buy one….they are worth their weight in gold, though) bought all our food in its natural form and got surfing the web.i have been absolutely delighted by what i have found! i love the classics like jamie oliver, ottolenghi, neil perry and stephanie alexander… but the world wide web is just an amazing place!
