This week whilst on holiday I was excited to visit an olive oil farm and mill to learn all about the beauty of Extra Virgin Olive Oil – aka EVOO. Of course, there was quite a bit of tasting involved too which was great fun. I’ve walked away having bought a few bottles to bring home and I can’t wait to enjoy drizzling! EVOO is well known for its health benefits, potent in antioxidants that contribute greatly to good health and longevity.

My love for life and any motivation has totally disappeared. I feel really blue. I crave nothing but […]

I hear so many people these days use the phrase “I’m just getting my Vitamin D” when enjoying some sunshine. We’re all increasingly aware of Vitamin D and the importance of it. But how do we get it and what does it really do for us? Where do we get Vitamin D from? There are some dietary sources of Vitamin D with oily fish such as herring, salmon and mackerel having the richest concentrations. Eggs, liver and butter have a little too. It is however the sun’s UVB rays that are the main source of Vitamin D. When the UVB rays hit the skin a chemical reaction […]
