#Febudairy The Vegans Take Over

The latest hashtag flying around social media is #febudairy and there’s a bit of a take over by the vegans.

Febudairy – I love it – hashtag febudairy, couldn’t be funnier. To me this is just entertainment plus… with a really serious note to it.
So what is hashtag febudairy? (#febudairy).

It was coined by a Dr Jude Capper who is the dairy industry woman of the year, (not sure which year). read more

Farmers Love Their Cows

I must admit that I do cringe a bit when I hear “farmers love their cows” from both dairy farmers and those who know farmers.

I was out the other day in my activist role and had a very lively discussion about dairy farming with a woman whose family were dairy farmers.  Most people in N.Z. either know or are dairy farmers and so consequently I hear this particular sentence an awful lot

The Goodness of Lemons

Somewhere in this blog I’ve talked about the goodness of lemons – well I’m pretty sure I have.

You see, to me lemons are the bomb!  They just ooze goodness literally and figuratively.  So today’s blog is all about the lemon.  AND at the end is a quick video with a damn great tip.

  • iron,
  • magnesium,
  • phosphorus,

What Is Cholesterol?

I think I can safely say that we all have heard about cholesterol and that it can cause heart disease, but what exactly is cholesterol and what impact does it have on our health?

Cholesterol is a type of lipid or fat that is essential for all animal life …. in the right amounts.
It performs three essential functions:

  1. It helps make the outer coating of our cells,
  2. It makes up the bile acids that work to digest food in the intestine,
  3. It allows the body to make Vitamin D and hormones, such as testosterone in men and estrogen in women

Now cholesterol is oil based and blood is water based, so if cholesterol were just dumped into the bloodstream, it would congeal into unusable globs.  But the read more

My 3 Top Tips For Going Vegan

These are my three top tips for going vegan, maybe they would be more aptly named as my top 3 ‘don’ts’.

I’ve said it before, but just in case you missed it last time round – PARSLEY ROCKS

This old fashioned herb is making a bit of a comeback which is awesome.  I really don’t think it should have left the “superfood” list in the first place, if indeed it was ever on it.  But it’s slowly read more
