Newsletter May 2020
I have decided now to write a monthly newsletter, so that I have a bit more online presence with my practice. This newsletter will comprise of helpful tips and information, seasonal and nutritional recipes, and promotions in my practice.
So, we are currently halfway through spring. In very uncertain times with the corona virus. Being in lock down, adjusting to social distancing and home-schooling. So, we all need to be kind to ourselves, and we will need to fill a bit more grounded and focus on our end game of getting out of isolation. We also need to look after ourselves by eating the right foods. We are coming into a fantastic part of the year with more fresh produce, and the weather is getting better so we can eat more raw foods like salads which is really good for our bio system.
Sit down in a comfy chair.
Place your hands by your side and put your feet flat on the floor.
Now close your eyes and take some deep breath in and out through your nose. Breathe all the way down to your stomach. Breath out really slowly and you will slowly start to relax.
Just imagine that your feet are developing roots just like a tree and are going down to the middle of the year.
These routes are a brilliant white in colour and just focus on these roots. So that you are secure and not wobbly or upside-down anymore.
So, when you are feeling a bit wobbly or upside down just sit down and do this exercise. This is quite good to do on the toilet with the seat down because the plumbing work also goes under the ground. This is a very good technique for children to learn just to calm them down when they get a bit overexcited.
Recipe of the Month:
Wild Garlic, Nettle, and Sweet Potato soup.
The elements in this dish like wild garlic, sweet potato and nettles are really good for your immune system I have served this with a cheese scone, you could garnish it with crème fraîche or roasted hazelnuts.
Rape seed oil 1tsnp
Onion 1 medium size roughly (chopped)
Sweet potato 1 large peeled and roughly diced.
Vegetable stock 1 one stock cube
Wild garlic 200 g
Nettles 60 g you are just using the young leaves for this.
The nettles need to be washed and then placed in boiling hot water for 30 seconds and then refreshed in ice-cold water.
In a pan put your sweet potatoes and stock. Bring to the boil and simmer until the sweet potatoes are cooked.
Once the potatoes are cooked and soft. In another pan fry off your onions in the vegetable oil. Then add the while garlic leaves and nettles. Pour over the hot stock and cook potatoes into this pan. So everything is mixed together. Then bring to the boil and out for 3 to 4 minutes. And then you can blitz your soup with a handheld blitz or a food processor.
I am currently putting my practice online in which I will be running some online weight loss courses and well-being courses online. Towards the end of the month I will be running a group well-being course. This will comprise of eight weeks group online work. I will email you handouts and MP3 recordings of the sessions and techniques.
