Okay, here's a question for you. What if this characateur has ended up in this unlikely position to somehow teach us that ego, the arrogance and selfishness of I, the small mindedness of thinking that ones needs are more important than another's and unashamed power mongering is NOT for the greater good. Maybe just maybe he's here to set a very bad example... and wake people up to  think this is not what it's about... #trumptynumpty #powermad #dontbeliketrump #hownotliveyourlife #whattrumpdidnext #egowatch #mindthecrap #thisistheantidote

So you think you're eating healthy? What's on your Sunday lunch plate today? Or rather, where does it hail from? Unless it's seasonal, organic and local you're kidding yourself and you're kidding your friends, family, Instagram followers whoever but most importantly you're kidding your planet. And your being 'had' by the food fashion industry. @riverford_organic deliver weekly food boxes with food that has been naturally grown and the least possible flown in. Of course some is, we take bananas daily among others for granted now. But what they bring in is always fair trade and fair play, grown naturally by reliable farmers. I messed up my order this week so had to head to @waitrose for my food stock and because I'd checked out www.eattheseasons.com to form my shopping list, I managed to fill my basket with seasonal local lovelies bursting with the nutrition needed for right here right now. Chicory from Lincolnshire Beetroot from Cambridgeshire; Pears from Kent; apples from Essex and only jet lagged veggie being Brussel sprouts from Scotland! Eating the seasons is the only way forward for our health because nutrition of food is at its optimum when eaten in season and it doesn't cost the earth in every way. Plus, crucially in a time when what to eat to stay well has becoming ridiculously complicated and confusing, you can trust that the earth is the mother of all nutritional know-how with nothing to hawk. She needs us to be fully aware and care about the order of things. It's not all about green juices year round, avocados in winter and powders, pellets and processed weird Sci-fi stuff! It's simply eating seasonally, locally, consciously and communally. NOW THAT'S healthy eating for you. Simple!

Well-heeled. Literally. These boots are getting a lot of compliments but being my happiest barefoot, when it comes to heels I need covert wellness going on underneath the glamour. These little beauties are not only carefully crafted and designed with the optimal heel height to ease off body weight from the front of the foot, here's the genius: a patented, integrated insole made with medical graded memory foam, shock absorbing cushioning with 156 small air pockets to help the insole extend and extract with your foot when walking. Talk about walking on air. But ssshhh, it's our little secret... Very clever @sargossa Very clever. #wellheeled #healthyheels #fitfeet #thisistheantidote

The latest latte is enlightened…
Turmeric, that glorious, earthy, egg-yolk yellow spice found in many dishes of southern Asia is currently under the spotlight. This root relative of ginger (another health powerhouse) is making waves with soaring sales as its many health benefits are seen to work wonders with depression, diabetes, aches, joints and cholesterol. 
Turmeric is also a key ingredient for reducing inflammation in the body, something that can lead to chronic disease and ageing. 
Yes we can bung it in all manner of curries and soups, but the turmeric latte is where it’s totally trending. But here’s the thing. According to Adam Russell, owner of the fabulous &Feast healthy coffee shop and cafe in Barnes, SW London, black pepper is a key conductor to blend with turmeric to ensure absorption. He is using Australian company Golden Grind Turmeric Blend – the apparently perfectly proportioned blend of 100% natural, unmodified turmeric of the highest quality, containing a 5% active Curcumin, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper – to make the MOST delicious, warming and comforting Golden Lattes (by adding hot water and your favourite milk or mylk. goldengrind.com.au
