Adding a dash of seaweed to your diet can give your health a serious boost. This ridiculously healthy superfood contains 2x more vitamin C than orange juice, 10x more calcium than cows milk and 50x more iron than spinach. It also boasts anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory benefits too.

Avocado Oil

Oil won’t just leave you feeling good on the inside, it also has plenty of skin nourishing properties too. Thanks to its high levels of antioxidants, and hearty supply of Vitamin E, this avocado extract will leave your skin looking and feeling super supple and enviably smooth.

Maple Water

Maple water doesn’t contain any additives and boasts half the sugar of coconut water. It’s rich in minerals, polyphenols, antioxidants, electrolytes, and prebiotics – which means that it has plenty of anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer health benefits too. If you’re not a fan of maple water by itself, get creative and try adding it to smoothies.


This tiny grain certainly packs a punch. Dubbed the new quinoa, teff has a long list of health benefits. Not only is it used to aid weight loss but it’s also a great source of protein for vegetarians. teff is gluten-free, high in iron and delicious!

Why You Should Keep Eating Gluten

Finally! The ‘gluten-free’ fad might be coming to an end! So many people these days are choosing the gluten free path, but is it actually causing your digestive issues or is what we’ve been eating it with?!

New research coming out about Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides & Polyols (a mouthful I know we’ll call them FODMAP’s for short), claims that self-diagnosed coeliacs might actually be suffering from the Polyols in certain fruits and vegetables like avocado, as opposed to the gluten in your baguette. AVOCADOS?!!


What’s going to happen to the avocado industry after thriving for so long as the number one brunch favourite for so many health and fitness fanatics? What about the new avocado emoji said to be coming out soon? Are we really going to turn our backs this antioxidant boosting fruit, as well as many other nutritious fruits and vegetables. This would mean no more smashed chilli avocado, no more cauliflower rice, no more Deliciously Ella key lime pie and good luck to you if you love a dollop of cashew nut butter on your ‘gluten-free’ porridge!And did I mention sweet potato? If you decide the low FODMAP diet is for you then you can say adios to those sweet potato brownies…

Any unexplained digestive problems should be diagnosed by your doctor first before unnecessarily cutting FODMAP’s or gluten from your diet.


Remember a little bloating from time to time is normal and not solely down to your food. Whatever your goals are you should maintain balance, variety and a well stocked kitchen. These are the keys to healthy success 🙂
