A culinary c**k up! How NOT to make this beloved dish...
16 August 2017

Hi!

Have you noticed a real abundance of features about gut health lately? I have. And  I'm pleased to say my TTFLS book 3.0 tips and tales to inspire, was amongst the 1st to emphasise how important these bacteria are. That's why I have done a big post about it at the bottom of this blog - do have a look :-) especially if you need to lose weight. Plus our Facebook group continues to be a superb support for everyone so do feel free to come join us if you've got any of my semi-autobiographical weight loss books based on Freedom Eating (you may remember last week I reported about meeting up with Shawn Goodman who helped create this set of prinicples to help break free from Food Prison.) Following this body-signals based system means you can have whatever you want, if your body really wants it, including desserts. (Mine doesn't usually want them if it knows it can, it only  wants them when it knows it can't!) Which is handy given the mouth watering dishes served up by Wendy back at Retreats for You. Usually...

How NOT to make this classic dessert…Another culinary mix up at Retreats for You – at least it was Wendy this time! watch the video

 book of the week – Erin green’s A Christmas Week Well if QVC can have Christmas in July, why not a yuletide themed book of the week! Not sure why it’s been released this early but as one reviewer says, it’s a gem, don’t wait till December! More here.

Another super QVC blog too, featuring picking up a bargain at the local auction and a cool look ahead at next week's bargains - early!

And don't forget if you are near, in Devon, mid Sept -

 -  Tickets are Released for my Concert in Devon on September 16thTalking of updates,Go here to read more about the night, and if you can, come down for the weekend. The Plough in Torrington is lovely, and a proper little arts venue with lots of concerts etc. Then the next day, we’ll be opening Retreats for You, my guest house in Sheepwash, for the Sunday afternoon too, for a vintage tea rooms event, so come down and meet us all!

  HAVE A GREAT WEEK!

 

best wishes

The importance of gut health-

'Hi everyone. Are you as impressed as I am with the amount of information flooding the market now, about gut health and the microbiome? So many books, pictures, articles. And TV programmes. Very proud to have been at the forefront of identifying this important factor for achieving good health . And weight loss of course.
My book 3.0 written way back in 2015 features the basics of why. As well as loads of other tips & tales to inspire. And the enlightening idea of the Inner Chimp, the demon inside us making us do things we know we should not do, and how to control it. Plus the Six guises of freedom eater - which one are you? Link is above.


However do read the article below, and it features an interesting approach if you like to diet alongside ttfls- eg if you are a Linda guise of freedom eater! My sister Linda is on a healthy eating drive at the moment and i feel much better when avoiding sugar. My body doesnt really Want it unless I am in the grips of a temporary sugar addiction 

So aside from all the little mentions of sweet food recipes et cetera that crop up on this group, it's more important than ever to look after your internal microbes.

Apparently Hippocrates knew that all disease begins in the gut. So wise even back then eh. Who knew it would come full circle. 

Anyone adjusted for gut health and got great results? Tummy problems, bloating, digestion better? Or increased your intake of probiotics eg with capsules (I take supermightidophilus 24, amazon, £23 or so for 60) 

Anyone notice now listening to your body, that certain foods always have a particular effect on you? Which?

So fascinating. Many illnesses are now  being linked to the gut and even depression is associated with that now. Hospitals are starting to give probiotics after treatment with strong antibiotics too now, thank God. At last.

Don't forget to watch the amazing videos on YouTube of Gut Reaction parts 1&2- its free.
