Raw Food Dover Calais Ferry Trip

3 Mar
three out of your five a day

three out of five a day

I was pleasantly surprised that there was any raw food available in the ‘international food court’ on a P&O Ferry crossing the Channel at midnight. However the trio of a banana, a clementine/orange and an apple was the extent of it. And at £3.50 for the three, it’s no wonder that every average punter, was chowing down on a big greasy plate of hot chips for £1.50.

I differentiate the average punter because our P&O Ferry also offered the more discerning passenger the option to dine in an offshoot of Mayfair’s famous Langan’s Brasserie. Here I am certain there would be many more raw food options on request, from their talented chefs, at their lovely silvered and tableclothed tables, if it was open for the graveyard sitting.

Raw Valentine Smoothy

16 Feb

Make every day Valentine’s day (at least for your own body) with this raw smoothie packed with delicious and natural aphrodisiacs.

Love strawberries and strawberries will love you back

Love strawberries and strawberries will love you back

1 cup of Coconut water
1 Banana
1 cup Strawberries
1 cup of Raspberries
½ cup of grated 100% raw cacao

Blend, pour into a glass, sip and see what happens…

 

Why are these ingredients aphrodisiacs?

Bananas, the good mood food, are very high in potassium, which helps the production of sex hormones and boosts energy.  They’re also high in Vitamin B, essential for nervous system and red blood cell production.

Strawberries and raspberries are very high in vitamin C, which helps with the production of anti-stress hormones, sex hormones and neurotransmitters.    

Raw cacao is the ultimate Valentine’s booster.  It contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), neurotransmitters, anti-ageing antioxidants and lots of magnesium, essential for helping the heart to pump blood efficiently, and lowering blood pressure.

Coconut water is a natural isotonic drink filled with electrolytes.  It helps circulation, keeps your energy levels up and makes sure your body is well and truly hydrated.
