CHRISTMAS feasts & wholesome gifts
When did Christmas come around so quickly?
We all hope to be organised and treat this time as a well-earned rest, but of course, Christmas comes around quick and before we know it, the list of last minute tasks is growing by the second.
All wrapped up in one simple diary post is a little helping hands to bring together a wholesome holiday. Here you will find my favourite healthy alternatives to the classic krimble recipes, an easy traditional craft to inspire those creative souls and a yuletide soundtrack to get you in the mood.

In the UK, geese are produced principally for the Christmas market.
Goose is an excellent source of riboflavin and vitamin B-6. These vitamins help our bodies use energy from foods, backed by the energy being boosted by its strong iron source of iron. B vitamins are important for growth and healthy skin, hair, nerves and muscles.

Unlike most brassicas, red cabbage doesn’t suffer when cooked for a long time; it softens and deepens its fantastic colour.

WHOLESOME WORLD COOKBOOK & LIFE
Over the past year I have been working damn hard behind the scenes transforming the Wholesome World app into the first edition ‘Wholesome World Cookbook & Life: Cancer Survivor | Ocean Addict’.
This project has nearly broken me and made me all in one. I struggle to pull sentences together at the best of times so trying to communicate my thoughts through the written word has been somewhat challenging.

I stumbled upon MADE FOR LIFE ORGANICS many moons ago and still swear by their products.

Scoping around the field I managed to stumble upon some willow sprites, and was aroused to see if I could pull a wreath together! You are so welcome to judge me, but have also come across a beautiful Eucalyptus wreath YouTube to share to you too. She makes the holder from a wire hanger, which is a bit of a classic, but keep your mind open and see what entices you most and keep it simple are my main points.

Reading your article helped me a lot and I agree with you. But I still have some doubts, can you clarify for me? I’ll keep an eye out for your answers.

It is good to increase the nutrients, by having varied dishes for your meal. Let me know if you need any further info through [email protected]
