France To Force Big Supermarkets to Give Away Unsold Food to Charity

Imagine how much food the Western world throws out each day, week or month? Here's a great initiative from France, rather than throw away food that is still consumable, give it to charity or those who can't afford to buy it.

Why you Should Become a Bird & Add Seeds into Your Diet...

Do you eat seeds? Now you're probable thinking 'I'm not a bird' but the truth is, you don't need a bird to eat seeds! In fact seeds have such a great nutritional profile that I eat them everyday...along with nuts. Birds are definitely onto something good.

But aren't they high in fat? I hear you say... True seeds are a source of fats but these are healthy fats. We need some healthy fats each day for essential fatty acids, which helps keep our skin soft, deliver fat-soluble vitamins, and are a great source of energizing fuel.
Seeds are packed with nutrients like protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. Add seeds to your cereal, yoghurt, smoothies, in baking, on salads or vegetable dishes, in mash, in pancakes or even in your pizza base!

Here are 5 great seeds to start including:

-Flaxseeds or linseeds: These are a source of dietary fibre and plant-based omega-3 fatty acids.

-Chia seeds: These are a source of dietary fibre, iron, folate, calcium, magnesium and plant based omega-3 fatty acids.

-Pumpkin seeds or pepitas: These are a source of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, zinc and protein.

-Sunflower seeds: These are a source of B vitamins including folate as well as a source of vitamin E.

-Sesame seeds: These are a source of copper, manganese, calcium and magnesium.

Carrot Cake Porridge
Winter is on it's way and what's better than a warm breakfast? Porridge is a nutritious healthy breakfast that will warm you up and fill you up too! Most people know how to make porridge but for something different and a way to add a bit more vegetable in your day (+ make your breakfast feel more indulgent), try this carrot cake porridge. Note: you can make in bulk and freeze in one serve portions and then just defrost, heat and eat rather than cooking porridge everyday when you're time poor.

Get the recipe on my website:
