Goodbye Beast from the East!

I'm sure we're all pleased to see the back of the Beast from the East. Just when we thought Spring was here we have another warning of snow for the weekend - brrr!
I hope all the mothers out there were treated to a nice day yesterday. My sister in London went out with a group of female friends to the chef Ottolenghi's first restaurant in Islington and she said the food was delicious.
Here is a very tasty cauliflower soup by the great man himself. Soups are so warming and healthy.

Snow, snow go away!

It's been lovely to see snowdrops and crocuses but now they are going to be hidden by the threatened snow storms later this week. Brrr ...
My little grandson is coming to visit and I've been child proofing the house. He's now walking and will be in to everything!
We must keep warm and here is a lovely warming pot roast chicken dish by a local celebrity chef. For vegetarians this mushroom stroganoff sounds delicious. To make it a vegan dish you could make your own vegan sour cream.

We have all the ingredients in the shop for pancakes including gluten free flour. For Valentine's Day we have delicious Booja Booja (dairy free) ice creams and truffles.
Just read this interesting article about foods that can help and harm the brain. The article lists a number of nutrients for optimising our brain health and one of them is polyunsaturated long-chain fatty acids, such as omega-3s.
Fatty fish, such as salmon, is the best natural source of this kind of fat needed by the brain and we have organic fresh salmon in the shop this week.
For vegans and vegetarians flax and chia seeds are good alternatives - again available in the shop.

Vitamin D3

Hopefully most people have recovered from the nasty flu/ cold viruses going around.
At this time of year we are lacking sunshine and so don't get enough vitamin D from the sunlight.
The NHS website recommends a Vitamin D supplement for certain groups of people and here at the Organic Food & Health Care Shop we have just introduced a Vitamin D3 vegan nutritional supplement to our popular range. Speak to Anne (info@theorganicfarmshop.com / 01751 473444) in the shop for more details.

Recovering from flu

The new year has seen lots of people come down with nasty chest colds and flu. As we recover we must build ourselves up and one way is to make and eat warming vegetable soups.
Coconut oil can be used to saute the vegetables - we have it on special offer. There are claims that coconut oil is good for your heart and a study done by the BBC TV program Trust Me I'm a Doctor found that it did not raise ‘bad’ cholesterol, despite being high in saturated fat. It also seemed to increase ‘good’ cholesterol!


This month has been labelled Veganuary - and this vegan burger looks delicious! We have all the ingredients in the shop - the burger buns will be arrive later in the week.
