Apologies for today’s furious flurry of blogs! It is just that between website refurbishment and ‘failing to connect with our database’ we seem to have been either off air or too-busy-to-blog for weeks. So this is catch up Friday – and I will squeeze my last three bookmarked items into this post!
For those of you interested in real home baking or who are ultra sensitive and concerned about contamination, milling your own gluten-free flour might be the answer. Certainly the Gluten-free Home Baker thinks so and she recommends a Wondermill Whisper Mill that, like everything else in the world, you can buy from Amazon.
Meanwhile, an article in Natural News last month suggested that green smoothies might be a great way for people suffering from acne to clear their skin – green in this case meaning not just coloured green but filled with nutrient heavy, cleansing green leaves such as kale, spinach, chard watercress etc. Combining them with fruit and purée-ing them in a powerful blender will have the added advantage of making them much more bioavailable. Check out the post as they have some suggestions about fruit/veg combinations.
And finally…… According to an article on strange but scientifically proven health tips in the Mail on Line on July 26th, if you suffer from hay fever or any inhaled allergy, shaving off or at least washing your moustache frequently with soap and water will prevent pollen, dander and other allergens getting trapped right under your nose and greatly reduce your need for antihistamines and decongestants!
