hope direct charity

dear all

last summer i started to recycle furniture. I think i visited all furniture charity shops in Manchester to find bargains.

my favourite shop is hope direct charity on 118 Chorlton Rd. It's like a big, magical treasure box and i find something amazing every time. Most of my furniture is from there. thankfully i have access to a van, but i know they also do home deliveries for a reasonable price. the only downside is they are only open from Monday till Friday :( It would be great if they were open on Saturday on my day off. its a really amazing place for all vintage hunters.

kefir banana blueberry smoothie

Hello dear readers,

i would like to introduce you to a drink, i have been drinking for many many years. KEFIR

I is super popular drink in poland where i come from and i have been drinking it for years. basically it's a super food or should i say drink
A little bit about its health benefits
It is easily digested, it cleanses the intestines, provides beneficial bacteria and yeast, vitamins and minerals, and complete proteins. Because kefir is such a balanced and nourishing food, it contributes to a healthy immune system. Its tranquilizing effect on the nervous system has benefited many who suffer from sleep disorders or depression.

The regular use of kefir can help relieve all intestinal disorders, promote bowel movement, reduce flatulence and create a healthier digestive system. In addition, its cleansing effect on the whole body helps to establish a balanced inner ecosystem for optimum health and longevity.

Kefir can also help eliminate unhealthy food cravings by making the body more nourished and balanced. Its excellent nutritional content offers healing and health-maintenance benefits to people in every type of condition.

uff that was a lot. i love the taste of Kefir , its very similar to sour milk. very refreshing.
however i started making myself this banana kefir, blueberry smoothie and it tastes sweet not sour at all. try it. I usually buy it in a polish shop but uncle google says you can even get in in tesco. try it, it really works.

cucumber wraps

so even though i don't cook, i really like looking through healthy cooking blogs. i found this really easy, but delicious cucumber wrap. i know! it is the most obvious thing in the world, but my brain is differently wired and i would never come up with something like that :)
just look at the pics for directions, it takes 3 minutes to make but looks very nice on a plate. so if you have a friend coming over its a lovely yummy snack looking wow. xx

Rapeseed oil cabbage

so i cooked that super healthy and delicious low calorie cabbage.
i glazed a little onion and a few mushrooms and added 2 handful of white cabbage and simmered it for about 20 min. but the interesting thing is i cooked it all with Rapeseed oil. apparently its a healthier option to olive oil.
