This is a guest post written by Sarah from The Sleep Advisor.  Sleep deprivation is a massive problem in today’s fast-paced world. We switch off the light but can’t seem to switch off the whirlwind of thoughts, worries and anxieties flying around our minds.

From obesity to heart disease, diabetes to depression – poor quality sleep has theRead More →

Our first toe-dip in the raw world was a promising success. We know that the best amount of nutrients are preserved with minimum to none heating, so we believe in the raw concept, although far from religiously. But raw protein-rich foods were something we wanted to try for a long time. So here’s the story of our first try. We used the food processor for this task; we can only guess that you can also use the blender. And that’s pretty much the only utensil you need. Ingredients we have popped in the processor: nuts mix (Brazil, cashew, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans) – 150g datesRead More →

We’re very excited to tell you that Wren Kitchens reached out to us to take part in the #LittleKitchen campaign.
