Coffee Kombucha

Reading Time: 5 minutes I’ve been sitting here for 10 minutes trying to describe what coffee kombucha is like. So far I can only come up with this: It’s like being slapped awake whilst simultaneously being caressed in velvet, while also being given smelling salts at the same time as having a hot water bottle gently placed on yourContinue reading “Coffee Kombucha”

Getting fizzy with fermented drinks- Water Kefir

Reading Time: 6 minutes I am not wholly human. In fact less than half of my body’s cells are human. I am a symbiote. And so are you. Now, I’m not talking about the likes of Venom, a dark, oppressive, controlling relationship between you and that thing that you share your body with. It’s more like those god awfulContinue reading “Getting fizzy with fermented drinks- Water Kefir”

Keema Recipe – A quick and cheap one-pot meal exploding with flavour

Reading Time: 4 minutes This is one for the meat eaters amongst you, although this could be adapted as a vegetarian dish (I like to substitute Aduki beans for mince).

Bigos – Polish Hunter’s Stew Recipe

Reading Time: 4 minutes This one is for the meat eaters. Here in Ireland and Britain, and possibly much of the rest of the world, when people think of Polish cuisine they could be guilty of imagining a stereotypical meal of meat and cabbage.

Fruit Leather Recipe – The Perfect Little Sweet Treat From Nature’s Larder

Reading Time: 5 minutes I’ve never been a sweets kind of person. Chocolate, yes. That’s a gateway drug to oblivion for me. I end up coming to, smeared in cocoa, with an over-riding sense of regret and colonic soreness. But sweets not so much. Well, unless you count fizzy cola bottles. I love them. Can’t eat enough of thoseContinue reading “Fruit Leather Recipe – The Perfect Little Sweet Treat From Nature’s Larder”

Sorrel and Red Lentil Soup Recipe

Reading Time: 5 minutes When I was walking with the dog this morning, stuffing my face with blackberries I noticed a fresh new crop of Common Sorrel growing up on the edges of the pathways that had recently been mowed. Glancing around I could see masses of the stuff bursting forth like little emerald starbursts in the grass. ArmedContinue reading “Sorrel and Red Lentil Soup Recipe”

Quick and Simple, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Low Carb Protein Pancake Recipe

Reading Time: 5 minutes Protein is a vital part of our diet and, in my opinion something that people often aren’t getting enough of.

At Wild Life,Continue reading “Quick and Simple, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Low Carb Protein Pancake Recipe”

Reading Time: 3 minutes Disclaimer: The main reason for writing this post is to serve as a discreet reminder to my wife that my birthday is looming and that Choccy Chia Brownies would perhaps be a lovely surprise.

Vitamin V – And Why Foraging is the Ultimate Human Exercise

Reading Time: 10 minutes How many plants do you eat? Do you get your ‘5 a day’ quota or are you like my Mum and only eat peas (we have to phone ahead when we go out for dinner)? But how many actual varieties of plants do you actually consume? The Earth has an estimated 400,000 plant species thatContinue reading “Vitamin V – And Why Foraging is the Ultimate Human Exercise”
