IsaLean Shake

I watched my husband take protein shakes for years but was never tempted because I just thought they would taste yuck and were for body builders.

How wrong could I be… they’ve been a complete revelation.

You see I used to skip breakfast rushing out of the door, busy organising the children and  getting ready for work. I didn’t realise how important it was until now.

So I have a complete nutrition meal in a glass for breakfast packed with all the good stuff we need to make our bodies function better. I add frozen berries, udos oil, seeds, whatever takes my fancy and I’m full for hours.

I just love them and there is no doubt they have shredded pounds and inches off my body. I would recommend anyone with a busy life and health and weight loss goals to give them a try. Message me for details.

The Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

 

I just love my collection of Himalayan Pink Salt Lamps.

They have grown so much in popularity recently due to their benefits but I’ve been using them for 14 years now. I love them for creating a cosy orange real fire glow in every room but there is so much more to them than meets the eye.

Here are six reasons why every home should have them.

  1. Salt lamps cleans and purify the air – It may seem hard to believe that a lump of salt fitted with an electric cable is capable of purifying the air and acting as a natural dehumidifier too. These incredible lamps attract and absorb water molecules into the salt, as the lamp warms the cleansed water is released back into the air and the impurities remain in the lamp.
  2. A must for allergy and asthma sufferers – Due to their incredibly ability to cleanse and clean removing dust, mildew, pollen and mould from the surrounding environment they can reduce symptoms for sufferers. They are also a must to ease coughing due to cleaning the air and protecting your lungs.
  3. Mood enhancer – Himalayan pink salt lamps are a natural way to enhance your mood or to help you to relax/destress. We all need that right? But also so beneficial to calm children too. They also have the wonderful quality of increasing focus and concentration so a wonderful addition to a study area/home office. They can also assist with seasonal affective disorder giving us a warm sunshine glow and can be set on timers.
  4. Better sleep – Himalayan pink salt lamps are natural negative ion generators, positive ions in our environment can deprive us of quality sleep so our lovely lamps help to address this. You can use one as a bedside lamp to clean the air and help you sleep better.
  5. Reducing electromagnetic radiation – Our homes and environments are full of appliances that emit radiation. Televisions, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, wifi boxes are just some that surround us now. Electromagnetic radiation has been shown to reduce the body’s natural defence mechanisms and create a drop in energy and function. Himalayan salt lamps work to neutralise the radiation. It’s a good idea to keep them close to a computer or near a wifi box. You can even buy mini lamps with a USB lead to connect to your gadgets.
  6. Energy boost – I’ve already mentioned Himalayan salt lamps have the ability to convert positive ions to negative ions. Positive ions cause fatigue so try plugging in a salt lamp where you like to spend your waking hours and you’ll soon notice a difference.

You can order a Himalayan salt lamp from me. There are different sizes available and they come boxed with a cable and bulb ready to plug in. They make a great gift if you can part with them.

Mountain salt lamp, weight 2-3kg £15 plus p&p £5.99 in the UK.

Mountain salt lamp, weight 3-4kg £20 plus p&p £7.99 in the UK.

Himalayan pink bath salts two bags – £7 plus p&p £2.99 in the UK.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup with Sour Cream, Chive and Pumpkin Seed Topping

For a delicious bowl full of Autumn coloured goodness try this one out. Perfect after a walk crunching through the leaves and great to batch cook and freeze too. Makes a great lunch to take to work as well.

Ingredients:

1 large pumpkin around 1.5 kgs in weight
1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil
1 large onion peeled and finely chopped
850ml of vegetable stock
425ml of almond milk
Freshly ground nutmeg
2 tsps ground cumin
2 tsps ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground pepper

To serve:

Sour Cream/Chopped chives/Roasted pumpkin seeds

Method:

Start by preparing your pumpkin to roast, carefully segment into pieces removing the seeds and pulp and arrange on a baking tray. Roast for 25-30 minutes until soft. Remove from the oven and let it cool. To roast the pumpkin seeds simply scatter on a baking tray and roast for 45 minutes.

Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over a high heat, add the onion, gently cook until browned then mix in your spices. Add your stock and the almond milk to the onions, and leave them with the heat turned low to slowly come up to simmering point. Scoop out the flesh of the pumpkin adding to the stock simmer for 15 minutes then puree in a liquidiser or with a hand blender.

Serve your soup with a tablespoon of sour cream, chopped chives and some roasted pumpkin seeds.
