Did you know?
that next Thurs 18 September, due to the Referendum, our 7.30pm class will be in The Dell Room, Church Rooms, Colinton Parish Church. It’s a lovely room that we’ve used before when the Loan Hall’s being used for Elections).

that significantly reducing white foods in your diet, while increasing healthy fats, protein and carbs in the form of fruit and vegetables, greatly enhances your energy, sleep and health on all levels.

that what you eat and what you drink really are vital parts of what you are and what you will become.
Every time you choose a meal, a snack, a food, a drink, you are making a decision that affects you and your body in a positive or a negative way.

that yesterday (Sun 7/9 – our 35th wedding anniversary by the way), Norman and I went to the Botanic Gardens for a Seaweed Symposium where we listened to 3 lectures from different people about the benefits of good nutrition and the benefits of regularly consuming seaweed in our diets. The lectures were all very informative, interesting and fascinating. Did you know that seaweeds or ‘kelps’ as the wild brown algae are sometimes called, are known to assist in the acid-alkaline balance, have a prebiotic effect on the gut flora, help protect the gut lining, stimulate the secretion of digestive enzymes and assist nutrient absorption and metabolism and thus strengthen immunity.

Want a healthy recipe using seaweed? Here’s Food Matters’ breakfast wrap using 4 ingredients, 6 minutes and you’ll have yourself a healthy and delicious breakfast to enjoy.
Whisk together 2 free range organic eggs with a handful of chopped parsley, sea salt and pepper.
Heat a non stick pan on medium heat and add a small amount of coconut oil or butter.
Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook for 1—2 mins before flipping the omelette to cook on the other side.
Remove from the heat and transfer to a place or board to slightly cool.
Place one nori sheet on a bamboo mat (sushi mat).
Cut a strip off the top and bottom of the omelette and use these extra pieces for the ends.
Add sliced avocado and perhaps some baby spinach.
Wet the tips of your finger and run a little water along the top edge of the nori sheet. Roll up your wrap and you have a delicious and nutrient rich breakfast – enjoy.

Here’s another recipe of a different kind (not the eating kind) – a recipe for one stressed human (from FMTV)
2 cups of Epsom salts, ½ cup of baking soda, 10 drops of lavender essential oil. Add to a hot/warm bath and relax.

Something to think about
Scales – the scales can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure your beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength or love.

Food is not only vital fuel but vital medicine. Eat the best nutrient-dense food that you can, keep yourself fit, well, strong and vital throughout your life.

“Ask yourself if what you’re doing today is getting you close to where you want to be tomorrow”. FMTV
