  • Protecting your Eyes - Naturally by Hannah Dare

    macushield-30__45225_zoom Shakespeare is known for saying our eyes are the windows to our soul. I was squinting recently to watch an escaped helium balloon disappear into the blue sky when it struck me just how precious my vision is. It’s a cliche but our vision is one of the things we can easily take for granted until it starts to desert us, and at the same time it is something that many of us simply assume will degenerate as we get older. But if you do some reading you realise that much of what happens to our eye health is under our control, despite what we have been led to believe. When I was first prescribed glasses I was told to wear them as little as possible. My Optician was also very reluctant to give in to my pleas for contact lenses, only prescribing them when I promised to wear them for only the occasional wedding or festival, when I wanted more freedom. He explained that where I might take off my glasses and give my eyes a break, with contacts this wasn’t possible and my eye muscles would weaken through lack of use if I wore contacts constantly. I think this is pretty sound advice, and now 20+ years on my vision has actually improved slightly (my prescription has decreased). While researching this article I have been reminded of another eye specialist from the 1860’s called Dr Bates who routinely smashed his patient’s eyeglasses and instead taught various exercises to strengthen eye muscles which he claimed would make glasses unnecessary. His methods made him hugely unpopular - perhaps because he challenged a large industry - but his methods are still being practiced today and while I’m not advising you throw away your driving glasses it certainly seems to makes sense to try some exercises out - especially if it costs nothing and causes no harm.

  • CHUNKY AUTUMN VEGETABLE AND HARICOT BEAN SOUP

    Winter Veg

    Soup is one of the simplest, most satisfying and economical meals to make. If you can make a good soup you can always feed your family and friends whatever you have in the cupboard. Unlike salads which need to be made from the brightest, most vibrant vegetables, soup can be made using up all the veg you have left at the end of the week, which means they will always be slightly different - but if you get the base right they will always be tasty. A good bowl of soup is like a hug from an old friend, something that brightens up even the dullest of days!

    This recipe will easily serve 2-4 people depending on hunger levels. Continue reading

  • Eat well, Live Well, Be Well

    Heart warming peppers and almonds     Heart warming peppers and almonds

    Our father used to love the catchphrases “Eat Well, Live Well” and “You are what you Eat”.

    We often see Hippocrates quote “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food’ but what guidance do we take from these pearls of wisdom? My understanding of these phrases is that our diet can be either very healing or it can kill us too early - and unfortunately too many of us eat the cheapest, most convenient ‘food’ we see rather than paying attention to what our body actually needs. We are overwhelmed by confusing advertising, tempted by easily available treats and unhealthy snacks, and the result is that many people in Western ‘developed’ nations are getting sicker and sicker. And more and more dependant on pharmaceutical drugs to keep us upright.

  • MEET THE STAFF: Hannah Goggin

    I had just come back from a year of working and travelling around Australia when I was offered a job at Organico as a temporary dishwasher. At that time the café had just been renovated and extended and after a very busy and successful summer to my surprise Hannah and Rachel asked me if I would like to stay on. I immediately said I would love to!

    Since then I’ve learnt such a lot and have a whole new sense of pride in all the responsibilities that come with my job. I have the unusual situation that my lovely mother Santhé also works at Organico and yes, we have our days when it can get a bit stressful but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love my mother very much and being able to work with each other is rewarding in itself.
