Recipe of the Month – Basic Flapjacks

Recipe of the Month Only Natural
It’s back to school time and a great flapjack recipe is a real asset. These are super easy to make and brilliant lunch box treats, breakfast on the go or any time snacks. The recipe is basic so pimp it in any way you fancy. Why not try seeds, chopped nuts or dried fruits (cranberries are delicious) , chocolate chips or cinnamon. I make no apology for the sugar, it really is necessary for the crunch and flavour, so maybe not an everyday indulgence. read more →

Lasting Solutions for Stress

Stress Only Natural

 by Calodagh McCumiskey, Spiritual Earth

Stress is the epidemic of our time.  75 to 90 percent of GP visits are stress related.  22 percent of employees in Ireland are stressed all or most of the time at work.  Anxiety and stress are on the increase in schools and third level institutions with 50 percent of students saying they have difficulty concentrating in class because of day to day stress.

Unhealthy stress affects everything from our sleep, to food habits, alcohol and sugar consumption, our biological age, mental and physical health, our ability to focus, our relationships – and our joy.   Unaddressed, unhealthy stress can take over your life and cause a host of debilitating problems. read more →

Ger’s September 19 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural
Zero waste week 2019 runs from the 2nd to the 6th of September (apparently it’s a short week!) so we’d like to remind you of just how we have and are trying to make zero waste living more of an accessible option locally here in Wexford. Living life without generating unnecessary plastic waste isn’t easy, it takes planning and effort but please don’t be put off by that, if you start by doing a little more and by being a little more conscious today then you can do more again tomorrow. Change has to start sometime! read more →

As we flow into September, with the nights drawing in, how many of you have found the last month chaotic? Personally I’ve found it extremely challenging spending two thirds of it in hospital unexpectedly! So I for one am hoping the universe has something better in store for September.  Having enforced rest has given me plenty of time for reflection and introspection.  I’ve spent plenty of time thinking could I have done anything differently to avoid the chaos this situation has created.  Being confined to a bed has sorely tested my patience, as well as having to dig deep to find compassion for myself and those around me.  So from this experience here are some tips for when things don’t go to plan:

Salt is Salt is Salt!

Anna Skrine

An Anna Skrine Case Study

There are many types of salt that are currently used as condiments to food – table salt, sea salt, Himalayan salt, Low salt and herbal salt. Though some are marginally more nutritious than others, containing other minerals, in the end they all contain the salt sodium chloride in abundance. Himalayan salt, for instance, contains 98% sodium chloride, with just the remaining 2% making up other minerals. read more →

Life Changing Bread

Sarah Britton My New Roots
“It took me a long time to settle on the title for this post. Why? Because it’s quite a statement to suggest that a humble loaf of bread will change your life.” So said Canadian Holistic Nutritionist Sarah Britton in her My New Roots blog when she first posted the recipe that I’m going to share here today.I can see where she’s coming from and don’t think the name’s too exaggerated at all.
Why? Because for most of us, me included, bread is at the heart of our diets and so of our lives. It makes sense so that, if we can make that bread as nutritionally dense as possible and replace lots of the less nutritious bread we eat with it, then it’s going to make big changes for the better in the way we feel. So according to Sarah here is that loaf, it has no downside. read more →
