Did you know that currently, medications cost approximately 20 billion per year and roughly 60% of people over the age of 21 are on at least one medication?
Medications have their place, do not get me wrong. But so many of the diseases that we see, could be prevented if we would change the way we eat.
Beloveds, it doesn’t have to be all at once. We can make little changes every day to eat well.
To Own Our Health is to EAT WELL. It doesn’t have to be complicated. All the principles of healthy eating have the same elements.
- Eat more plants
- Eat plenty of fibre
- Have good sources of protein
- Eat plenty of healthy fats
- Avoid packaged and processed foods as much as possible
Now before you get overwhelmed remember the saying by Jim Kwick?
“Inch by Inch is Synch. Yard by Yard is Hard“
This week we are going to do three things together
- 1 – Eat a plant-based meal. Here are my three favourites:
- Brown Rice and Tahini miso Buddha Bowl
- Roasted Miso Aubergine Bowl
- Marinated mushrooms with walnut and tahini yoghurt (I have a massive culinary crush on Yotam)
- 2 – Nail a fish recipe. Oily fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel are the best, but any fish will do! Here are my two favourites:
- Salmon Salad with Asian Ginger Sesame Dressing. (This is my all-time fave.)
- Healthy Mediterranean Tuna Salad Don’t underestimate the delicious tinned tuna
- 3 – Eat plenty of healthy fats & cook in olive oil
Slather your grainy toast with avocado, put it in your salads, and make your own hummus with tahini, lemon and olive oil. Smash some olives and eat a handful of nuts every day. Try making your own almond or peanut butter and spread it on your apples and celery!
So let’s Aim to do these three things this week! Who is up for it?
Greenie and I are ready!
You are deeply loved and richly cherished.

This week I challenged myself to cook salmon four different ways. Which really secretly annoyed Greenie as he LOVES to find a recipe that he loves and eat it Over and Over and Over. I love to mix things up! I made Asian Salmon salad (recipe above) Salmon, broccoli and noodle stir-fry, coconut salmon curry, and salmon pan-fried with french scrambled egg and truffled zucchini. I know. I deserve the next Nobel prize… Who said healthy eating had to be boring?
