Ger’s October 19 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural
The Vitality Expo took place the last weekend in September in the RDS so of course I took myself up to Dublin for the weekend. Like last year the Show was an opportunity both for health store members and our customers to see all the latest in innovative supplements and new wholefood products as well as to listen to the latest research from the most up to date thinkers in our industry.  Below are just some that I spoke to but these in particular got me excited!

Recipe of the Month – Mediterranean Chicken and Chickpea Stew

Recipe of the Month, Only Natural, Oliver McCabe
A tireless advocate of natural health in Ireland is natural food chef and author Oliver McCabe and, as I chatted to Ollie at the Vitality Expo, I thought of how long it had been since we’ve shared one of his wonderful recipes. So as we head into the time when we all want nourishing and warming soups and casseroles here’s Oliver’s recipe for Mediterranean Chicken and Chickpea Stew. What a doddle, prep it in 15 minutes, cook it in 40! Because of the addition of herbs and spices, olives and lemons the flavour is divine and the lean protein, chickpeas and millet make it super nutritious. Try this one when there’s a chill in the air and your body’s craving comfort. read more →

The Wheel of Fortune by Mark Nichols

Mark Nichols Tarot Card
The supermarket shelves are stocked with pumpkins and sweets in preparation for Halloween and Samhain, the Celtic Festival which marks the end of harvest, the end of the year and the beginning of the New Year. It seems appropriate to discuss a card which portrays many cycles, including the big one – Life.
Progressing through October we will become aware of the descent of the sun as it moves toward the Autumn Equinox, the point which divides the year between the brighter and darker halves. This is a time when the veils between our realm and the Spirit realm are considered to be at their thinnest, thus it is a good time to consider our true Soul purpose, and October is a good time to prepare ourselves for the coming transition into winter. read more →

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 →

Salt is Salt is Salt!

Anna Skrine
