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.

Plantain is another favourite of mine, mostly unnoticed, yet abundantly grows along the edges along lanes and footpaths, camouflaged amongst grasses.

It again proves to be a very nutritious and powerful healing plant. It is easily found and is the perfect first aid plant when out and about. Rub the leaves and put it on itchy allergic skin, or insect bites, or use it as a plaster on wounds. For blisters on your feet, just put the leaves over the blister in your shoes. It is antiseptic, ant inflammatory and promotes the healing process in the tissues. Plantain also helps wounds that just do not want to heal, like bedsores, ulcers etc. read more →
The base, whose main ingredient is toasted sunflower seeds, is very clever and keeps it gluten free. The topping can be made with or without dairy so it can easily be made into a vegan treat. I see lots of possibilities for variations, why not try raspberries or blackberries instead of strawberries, pimping it with cacao nibs might work too. Do try this, for very little effort it’s guaranteed to impress. read more →
