Lettuce Pea and Mint Soup

1 teaspoon of olive oil to soften onions
250g fresh or frozen peas

Soften onions in the bottom of a large pan with olive oil, add the stock and the peas and simmer for 10 minutes – or until the shells are soft, add the lettuce and bring to the boil. Take off the heat and then once it has cooled slightly add the mint and blend, once blended return to the heat and bring to required temperature.

March is living up to it’s name…


High Winds , falling trees, no electric and teaming rain, lucky for us we are snuggled up by the fires , generator going & all hands on deck. Our clients are having a lovely blissful stay. Daffodils arrived early and the meadow is a carpet of yellow, when the sun does come out ! it will be a beautiful sight. In the meantime Vivien is busy in the kitchen developing Juices & Soups for the Spring everybody is participating in the tasting process something that we all enjoy. She is always looking for unique recipes and healthy ideas that our clients love. I don’t think we have ever had any comments about ‘yuck’ or ‘urgh’ mind you some of them find the green juices hard to swallow but after a few days of Detoxing they absolutely fall in love with even the green juices. Vivien has always got a little surprise up her sleeve & it never ceases to amaze people what she comes up with. Watch this space for more Spring recipes. The new Yoga/ exercise room is a big hit especially it’s under floor heating. It is calming atmosphere is the perfect place to meditate.


A QUICK & EASY JUICE to make. Can also help to calm the symptoms of PMS.
This is just one of the many juices that we would be recommending whilst you are with us.

5 Plums (halved & stoned)
1 knob (1 1/2 inches) Fresh Ginger (peeled & chopped into chunks)
25 Raspberries

Press alternative chunks of Plum, Ginger & Raspberries through the Juicer. Stir & drink immediately. further Recipes and Juices can be found on our ‘face book’ & blog pages.

Sunday morning breakfast treat…

2 handfuls of Blueberries

1 Small punnet Strawberries

1/2 a small Avocado

1/2a Kiwi Fruit

1 handful of Muesli

6 Walnuts (chopped)

200 ml Almond Milk

A small drizzle of Honey

Prepare Strawberries & Blueberries, peel and slice Avocado and Kiwi. Arrange all the ingredients decoratively in a large bowl or glass and serve with the cold Almond Milk.

How lucky we have been with the most amazing mornings, the mist rolling over the hills, the sun comes out and clears away the mist. definitely a new Spring on its way, hoorah….

The combination I have put together is in most peoples fridges, just a different way to start to your day. Variety is the spice of life as they say, take the time to experiment with different combinations of fruits and vegetables and you will be surprised how delicious they are when put together in a different way.

Time to love yourself…

Valentines day is about putting yourself first so start your day thinking about you. Why not start Valentines day with an energising juice or a bowl of fruit. Chose the fruits that you really love rather than what you have left in the fridge. Prepare a little snack for mid morning for example a handful of almonds or grapes. A colourful Salad for lunch and take time out to enjoy. Afternoon break a nice juicy pear or nuts and seeds. Time to go home, get out of those work clothes and put on your casuals and enjoy this juice.

Make this Valentine’s sparkle juice, sit down put your feet up and listen to your favourite music. An ideal day for reflection, we have everything we need in life if only we care to look for it.

1 Honey Dew Melon

2 x Sharon Fruits

1 x Small wedge of Lemon

Now, just imagine swimming in an azure blue sea with palm trees waving in a light breeze……. this is the image that comes to mind while I’m having a wonderful Hot Stone Massage in the nice, warm & cosy Gold treatment room at ‘Simply Healing’.

Soothe away that feeling of over load !!!

Gaining control…

Blood Sugar running totally out of control what could I do about it but go back to basics.

I had a little moment when I realised that my body wasn’t performing as it normally does. So I checked my blood pressure and cholesterol and my blood sugar. Blood sugar had gone through the roof. Oh dear and I thought I had been very good in controlling my sugar intake. This clearly wasn’t so…. I decided to take a few days to jiggle my eating habits. I started portion control , taking out carbs, went on to soups , juices and salads and good old fashioned water (strictly no caffeine). Just 4 days later my sugar levels were near to normal and I was full of energy and vitality. I broke my fast with a delicious salad made up of the following ingredients:

1/2 a pack of Feta Cheese

1/2 an Avocado

1 large wedge of Cucumber

2 sticks of Celery (chopped)

2 Cherry tomatoes

4 White Grapes (chopped)

Small handful of Walnuts (chopped and sprinkled on top)

1 tablespoon of Virgin olive oil

1/2 a Lemon (juiced)

1 Toasted Wholemeal Pitta Bread

Put ingredients into a large bowl, stirred around, added a measuring of Mediterranean herbs which I sprinkled on top . I then left for 1/2 an hour. Toasted the wholemeal pitta bread, opened up the Pitta and filled with the salad.

There was enough for 2 so Kate and I had a little feast with our feet up my the log fire…yum
