Jeff Bezos Wants You to Eat This

...Plus how to get Wimbledon Ready this Summer the Healthy Way

Fan of tennis at all?

I’m not a super fan but it’s Wimbledon coming up which can only mean one thing…

Strawberries and cream galore!!! But I’ll show you how to do it the healthy way today…

Here’s your run-down;

  • Busting big health myths…

10 Health Myths Experts Wish Would Die

How often have you heard that vegans are deficient in protein? Or that all fat is bad? Or that white potatoes are the spawn of the nutrition devil? We've all heard them – and it's time to put these nutrition myths to bed with these 10 truths.

Here’s a few I wanted to highlight…

  1. All fat is bad for you – The "good" ones like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats actually play vital roles in our bodies. You can find these healthy fats in avocados, nuts and oily fish!

  2. The 'Calories in, calories out' is key to long-term weight management – quality of food, not just calories, matters for long-term weight management.

  3. People with Type 2 diabetes should steer clear of fruit  Whole fruits, not fruit juices, can help control blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes.

  4. White potatoes are bad for you  Actually they’re rich in vitamins and fiber, and can be part of a healthy diet when cooked properly. Rather than deep-frying, consider roasting, baking, or boiling to maximize their health benefits.

  5. Plant protein is incomplete – All plant-based foods contain all essential amino acids, so a diverse plant-based diet provides complete protein.

I hold a firm belief that everything in moderation is key, but here’s a funny story for you…

My own Grandmother fell hard for the Cadbury Dairy milk ad that claimed each chocolate bar contained ‘a glass and a half of fresh milk’…and therefore, contributed to my calcium intake growing up…

Alas, a sugar fiend was born, and it’s taken years to shake off those unhealthy impulses! Thankfully instead of the chocolate bar, I now grab one of these dairy-free delights!

Jeff Bezos & Google Want You to Eat More Beans and Legumes. But, Why?

Yes. Google, the Bezos Earth Fund, and 40 other organizations have joined in a global campaign, Beans Is How, aimed at doubling the consumption of beans, pulses, and legumes by 2028. The mission is to fix the global food system by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, primarily from animal agriculture.

I’m definitely NOT here to promote any of these big industry marketing campaigns…

But, whatever your opinions are on the environment, it’s hard to argue against the benefits of the humble bean…

They’re nutritious, affordable, and an eco-friendly protein alternative to meat. Their lower carbon footprint, compared to meat and dairy, makes them ideal for a sustainable diet. Moreover, beans are not just affordable and versatile but also rich in protein and essential amino acids, supporting muscle development, heart health, and aiding digestion.

But skip the Heinz packets and canned options…the best way to incorporate more beans and legumes into your diet is to buy them fresh, or even better, grow them yourself to ensure the best quality. Avoid ultra-processed foods that are often misleadingly marketed as healthy choices.

Is Salt Actually Bad For You?

(Because I thought a picture of table salt would be too boring…)

As wholesome as this Vietnamese salt harvesting looks, I’ve got some news for you on the salt front…

You know how it feels when you accidentally dump a truckload of salt into your pasta? That's how your heart feels when your sodium intake is sky-high.

Not really a surprise but the World Health Organization (WHO) recently served us a piping hot report that measures how well countries are doing in reducing sodium levels. Kind of like Yelp reviews, but for sodium control! They've dished out "Sodium Country Scores" from 1 to 4 - let's call it the Salt-O-Meter.

And why should you care? Well, just as too much salt spoils the soup, too much sodium spoils your health! Studies have consistently found that high sodium intake is a straight path to hypertension, stroke, and heart disease.

In fact, the American Heart Association suggests limiting sodium to 1,500 mg a day, but the average American consumes more than 3,400 mg daily. So, it’s clear we have a salty situation on our hands!

By keeping tabs on our Sodium Country Score, we can monitor our progress in cutting down this sneaky mineral.

When it comes to our bodies, adding salt to the wound isn’t always the best idea. Sometimes it's about subtracting it from your diet instead!

Get Wimbledon Ready with Strawberries & (Dairy Free) Cream

One of the most quintessential desserts of summer is by far the humble strawberries and cream. Especially during Wimbledon season, where the dessert is seen dotted across the audience of straw hats and pristine white outfits.

Whether you’re in the UK or not, you can still easily enjoy this simple pleasure from the comfort of your own home.

Of course whipped cream isn’t exactly the most healthy option, and who even knows what toxins are waiting to be consumed in those whipped cream cans…

But you want to treat your guests to something delicious and simple this summer, don’t you?

Coconut whipped cream enters the game*

Instead of going to the store to buy, to be frank, something that isn’t even real cream in my opinion…

Try making your own healthy version using coconut milk to mimic the texture and natural honey to enhance the sweetness!

Honey, especially darker types like buckwheat honey, contains antioxidants that can really help protect your body from cell damage due to free radicals, unlike that suspicious can of whipped cream.

Curious how to make this cream ready in time for your next garden party (or even just a night on the sofa)?

Dairy-Free Whipped Cream Recipe

Dairy-Free Coconut Whipped Cream


  • 1 can (13.5 oz) of full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream

  • 1-2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup or honey (or adjust to taste)

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  • Chill the can of coconut milk or cream in the refrigerator for at least 6-8 hours, or overnight.

  • Open the can without shaking it. Scoop out the solidified coconut cream, leaving the liquid behind.

  • In a large bowl, whip the coconut cream using an electric mixer until it becomes smooth.

  • Add the natural sweetener (maple syrup or honey) and vanilla extract. Continue to whip until it reaches a fluffy, light consistency.

  • Taste and adjust sweetness if needed. Whip again to combine.

  • Don’t waste a moment. Serve immediately over fresh strawberries, or store in the refrigerator until ready to use. It will harden slightly when chilled, so whisk or beat it again before serving if needed.

This version replaces powdered sugar in a lot of other recipes. So, if you want more of an airy texture or taste, I recommend reverting to 2 tablespoons of that.

Enjoy lovely!

Food for Thought…

Fancy Being Paid $15 an Hour to Eat Cheese?

A university in Wisconsin have posted a research role that could require you to eat 24 cheeses and 12 different pizzas a week!

Sounds dreamy but disastrous for your body…

Especially when you can chow down to your hearts content on luscious, smooth dairy-free cheese recipes like this without the stomach ache.

Made something tasty this week? Post a picture in our lovely Facebook group for everyone to see!

Until next week,
