Drinking water is one of the top things for being healthy, but not everyone enjoys the taste. Filtered and refrigerated water can make all the difference. Keep the water in your refrigerator fresh by replacing the filters regularly. You can get refrigerator water filters for most makes and models of fridge, keep an eye out for improved filters that upgrade the current filter models in use. They will fit in the same slot but provide better filtration and improved taste.

I love cooking, whether just for myself or for a group of friends and I enjoy experimenting with different foods and techniques. I also have a weakness for gadgets, and I can lose far too much time when looking around the Kitchen and Dining section of a store. (more…)

I do enjoy a good curry, and I know I’m not alone on that! Now new research suggests that eating curry regularly could help prevent dementia. One of the components of tumeric seems to be the key, dissolving the build up of plaques and nerve fibres that cause the degradation of brain tissue. More research is needed to prove the results but I think it’s better safe than sorry, so time to get down the curry house!

Finding the right gift for that person who already has everything can be very difficult, and we all have one in the family! One option though could be a subscription to wine of the month club. This provides a great selection of premium wines straight to the door, either monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly. There are a range of clubs providing different wines so you can find the right choice, such as the Gold Club providing a selection from California’s best small family owned wineries.

You know that eating fresh fruit and vegetables are good for you, but have you ever thought why? Phytonutrients are plant-based nutrients that help boost immunity, promote health and reduce the chance of developing certain diseases. It’s long been understood that plant vitamins, minerals, and fibre are good for your health, but there is growing evidence to suggest that there are even more benefits to unprocessed vegetables and fruits.
As you heat or process plant material, naturally occurring compounds can be damaged. If the beneficial chemicals are broken down or changed, they won’t give you as much benefit compared to the raw fruit or vegetables. Eating fresh food is a real privilege, where you can enjoy the best that natural food has to offer.
PhytoLife gives you detailed information and recipes to help you get the best from phytonutrients. A healthy diet with fresh food can also help you lose weight! So rather than pay for fad diets that don’t work, learn about the benefits of fresh and healthy foods.

Getting going in the morning can be difficult without that cup of coffee. However, it can also add up if you like freshly brewed ‘proper’ coffee. One way around this is to invest in one of the range of espresso machines available. The options available vary between budget entry level right up to premium machines, so you can select the right choice for you.

Finding the right gift at this time of year can sometimes be difficult, but for most kids, whether big or small, sweets are the answer. To keep them bouncing all day long why not pick up some haribo gummi raspberries. You can even pretend they’re one of your 5 a day as they’re so fruity! (more…)

You don’t have to give up all the foods you love, even if you’re trying to lose a few pounds. Many meat products can be used in healthy cooking, you just need to choose the right cooking method. Grilling with a George Foreman grill the fat drips away rather than staying with the food and being reabsorbed, the new style machine even mimics a deep fat fryer, but still without the fat content! You really can enjoy a healthier version of the foods you love.
