I was looking at all the fresh fruit and vegetables over the weekend. It’s amazing, not only the colours that the natural world produces, but the health benefits some can have for our body.
How many of you cook your vegetable to within an inch of their life, or know someone who does? Did you know by leaving your vegetables crispy, your body will burn off more calories as it breaks the food down.
Mushy vegetables are already well on their way to being broken back down into their sugary form that our body needs to fuel us.
Also look at fruit and vegetables that are in season.
In the UK fruit and vegetables such as french beans, apricots, cherries, cucumber, rocket, tomato and watercress are all freshly available this time of year. Why not grow your own in a small trough or herbs in a flowerpot on a window.
Try fresh salads for lunch. I know in East Grinstead the New York Coffee Shop are currently selling the most mouthwateringly fresh salads, created by the staff on a daily basis. You can visit their website www.newyorkcoffeeclub.co.uk/ or pop down to their cafe in Brighton. The smoothies are pretty amazing too, I have tested them several times, just to make sure obviously. Also who could resist those amazing smiles from the staff.
So see how much better you feel and how much more energy you have by using nature’s shopping list, I challenge you.
Let me know about other foods and how their health benefits have helped you.
Book yourself in to 'a weight off your mind' interactive evening seminar being held on 24th Sept at the Chequers Mead in East Grinstead. Tickets will be available directly from the Chequers Mead Box office or by contacting me directly.

into the middle of this week, hopefully leaving those cold winter evenings heading off into our distant memories. Thoughts of spring lambs, Easter and clocks leaping forward bring us gradually out of our hibernation.
So what have I been up to over the long winter evenings? I thought it was the perfect time to refresh my skills and add a few extra ones. Over the past two weeks I’ve been travelling up to central London to attend various courses. Last weekend I spent time training with Matt Roberts and his ‘Training with You’ team. This new programme is initially a six week programme where between 2 and 8 of you are trained in the comfort of your own home, once a week. All equipment for these sessions will be supplied for the one and a half hour sessions. The simplicity of the programme ensures that if you follow and stick to it, results are guaranteed. I have now put a button on my website which links you directly through to the Matt Roberts ‘Training with you’ website which is run in association with Conviviality.
What else have I been up to? This weekend I went up to do my final Acupuncture training sessions with Bernard Nolan, his
clients have included various well known premier football clubs, a number of well-known celebrities and he has appeared on GMTV, Trisha and other daytime TV programmes. It was great to learn from such a knowledgeable individual who made musculo-skeletal acupuncture, so understandable. I look forward to putting my skills into practice in a month’s time, once my case study has been submitted.
Also on my weekly trip to the New York Coffee shop for my morning coffee in East Grinstead, I got to meet and talk briefly to the gorgeous Peter Andre; I can say he is as good looking in real life as he is on the TV! Happy Birthday Mr Andre, I hope you had
a great day.
Why have I chosen to add acupuncture to my list of skills? I have realised over the past 14 years of doing what I do, that having a holistic all round approach to people’s health and wellbeing means that not only can I treat their physical needs but I have the ability to work with them to modify their psychological barriers as well. I also feel it is extremely important
not to try to go beyond my knowledge and to realise this when I need other professionals, such as the Physiotherapists that I work with at Head2ToePhysio in Crawley.
I can honestly say that the most important thing to me is making someone’s life that little bit better using the skills I’ve picked up over the past 14 years.
