Ginger and Lemongrass TeaBy nathanMy daughter Tarnea and I have a little addiction going at night, we've found a tea that we both enjoy. Before we close down the kitchen for the night I make a pot of tea for us to sip while we talk, read or watch a spot of TV. It has become a ritual and we both enjoy not only the taste but the ritual we've created around it.Mouth watering lemon leaf teaBy nathanThis hot tonic can be brewed to simply enjoy, for colds and flu or just to keep your immune system strong.

Chicken and Vegetable Bone BrothBy nathanLet me explain what broth is and why it's so good for you. When you cook meat, bones, bone marrow and connective tissues in filtered water for a few hours you get broth. The flavour, nutrients and minerals from the bones migrate into the water making a wonderfully warming, nourishing and healing broth drink. Broth is packed full of minerals including a rich source of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium and sulfur. Bone broth also helps maintain and rebuild the structure of our bodies.
Another nutritional benefit to drinking broth is the gelatin which is leached from the animal bones during the cooking process. Gelatin is incredibly healing for the digestive tract as broth works towards normalizing digestion and makes foods cooked in broth easier to digest. Other benefits of drinking gelatinous rich broth include strengthening hair and nails, reducing, preventing and healing cellulite and wrinkles.

The fermentation process enhances the already strong nutritional profile of raw beetroot, increasing levels of food enzymes and B vitamins (particularly folate).

Nut MylkBy nathanAlthough nut mylks may seem time consuming and expensive, a little goes a long way. When you buy a packet of your favourite type of nuts, nothing needs to go to waste when you make a mylk from it. We use every little bit.
Plant Based MilksBy nathanThe western world has been besieged by dairy intolerances due to the quality of our milk, the health of our cows, the food and medications given to our cows and the processing done to our milk. Due to the fact that plant based milks are become popular, many companies making these milks in tetra packs may use dubious ingredients to thicken, taste and sweeten the original taste for flavour and economical reasons. I like nut milks the best, especially brazil nut milk for my chai tea’s and smoothies. But I’m very pedantic about my milks so I make my own. I then add my own taste changes by adding sea salt, dates to sweeten and vanilla beans to flavour. They are not hard, they just take a bit of time. Soak the nuts for 12 hours, discard the water and place the nuts into a strong blender with fresh vanilla powder, dates and sea saltCreamy Cashew MilkBy nathanA super quick and healthy alternative to those who cannot tolerate dairy.
Flu Fighting JuiceBy nathanThere is a flu going around at the moment, involving a very phlegmy cough. Pineapple juice is more than perfect for this. Pineapple contains a great supply of sulphur and chlorine, which both aim to cleanse the respiratory system of mucous. Sulphur protects mucus accumulation in the respiratory and digestive system, while chlorine reduces congestion and bronchial problems. Pineapples also contain A and C, which will also aim to fight off any infections. Do your best to use a cold pressed juicer to retain all of the nutrients, as sulphur, chlorine and vitamin C are all heat sensitive. The remaining ingredients in this juice are incredible. They all have properties that will boost your health, make you feel revitalised and your skin glow.
