  • I’ve Had A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts

    January 24, 2011  |  Blog, Recipes  |  Comments Off

    Brrrrrr! We just got back from down south to find ourselves in a wintery wonderland. I can’t wait to strap on my skis!

    I love being able to travel to warmer climates in the thick of winter.

    2011 Here We Come!

    I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season and brought in the new year with gusto.

    This new year’s eve, while my partner was off rescuing the wounded (if you recall, he’s a paramedic), my daughter was off galavanting with friends and I managed to have a quiet evening snuggled up with my kitty and a cup of tea watching movies.

Sugar can deplete our immune systems for hours and this leaves us more susceptible to colds and viruses that are looking to infiltrate our bodies.

    So I thought I would give you some simple suggestions to get you back on the feeling good bandwagon, start this new year off right and while we’re at it boost your immune system naturally.

    Entertaining during the holiday season usually requires breaking out the fine china and silverware. So here goes the annual ritual of blowing off the dust and polishing up the goods. Creating that holiday sparkle with your table wear doesn’t mean sacrificing your health to harsh cleaners. There are many safe and natural alternatives to the chemical laden cleaners you’ll find at the market.

    Chemical Free Silver Cleaner

    • Line a plastic bowl or bucket with aluminum foil.
    • 12 cups hot water
    • 4 Tbsp baking soda

    Put in the pieces of silver to be cleaned, and leave until bubbles start to form.
