Dear Reader,

A huge and heartfelt thank you to all of you who have so generously donated to the Ration Challenge. Together we’ve raised nearly £1,500 pounds which is really incredible. The money raised will help refugees and internally displaced people around the world. From those affected by the Syrian crisis and the conflict in Ukraine, to others forcibly displaced in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Afghanistan, the focus is on meeting urgent needs for food, clean water, shelter, healthcare and education. If you haven’t donated yet, but would like to… just go here!

Eating mostly rice and beans (and towards the end, it was basically rice and more rice) really highlighted how diverse my diet usually is. I include a vast array of herbs, spices, fungi, seaweed, algae, vegetables, wildcrafted foods, seasonal fruit and veg as well as a selection of carefully selected omnivore proteins. Plants can be viewed as special beings that carry information and energy to nourish, support and cleanse our body’s cells. If we are guided by how we feel after eating a certain food (do we feel heavy, light, energised, zingy, dull, whacked-out or joyous?) then we’ll get a wide variety of just the right micronutrients for our health and wellbeing from our daily food intake.

Enjoy your food this week, and try introducing something you don’t normally eat. Thanks to my friend who has an allotment, this week I got to enjoy two new fruits gooseberries (I thought I didn’t like them but actually they are yummy) and loganberries (only had them as a sugary jam, never fresh). OMG loganberries are yummy! I also went home with a delicious bundle of raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries and greens. If you don’t have an allotment friend who grows unusual things, you can try adding some dandelion leaves to your salad or infusing some fresh elderflowers for a refreshing cup of tea.

Enjoy trying some different foods this week, and see how your body responds.

Classes are running as usual this week… Saturday’s Zoom class is the only one in July, the next one will be in August.
