Women's Health Programme

A few weeks ago, I headed down to Herefordshire to attend a two day Women's Health programme run by a company called Green Cuisine.  The two days incorporated some of my favourite things in particular yoga and cooking plus I got to learn about nutritional wellbeing for women.

As part of the learning, I found out more about how the digestive system operates, how to eat to prevent breast cancer and osteoporosis and discussed some foods that support health generally.

Each day started pretty early with a fresh juice to wake you up and then an hour and a half of kundalini yoga.  After some breakfast we did the learning part of the course and then headed into the kitchen to cook our lunch and later on supper.  During the course of the stay, I drank nut milk, learned how to sprout grains, foraged and made nettle soup, enjoyed a couple of slices of geranium cake and tried everything that was given to me.  There was lots to take on board and Daphne our host for the stay was so knowledgeable being not only a qualified nutritionist but also a chef.  

I really enjoyed the few days I had there.  It was fun to experiment in the kitchen and to collect herbs from the garden to add to our meals.  I am not saying that I will take on board everything that was suggested, but I have been eating more raw foods since I returned home plus I have also sprouted wheat grains and alalfa both of which have been delicious and I am now the proud keeper of a small herb garden.

So thank you Daphne for sharing your views, your knowledge and experience and for making it fun too.  If you would like to find out more about what Green Cuisine offer, then check out their website at
