January detox

Seagreens® are effective in detoxification through 4 key methods:
  1. Cleansing of the digestive tract, blood, lymph, kidneys and improved metabolism of food (by a unique range of polysaccharides and pigments including chlorophyll, all the antioxidant vitamins and minerals);
  2. Removal of toxic and heavy metals and radiation (by special polysaccharides, the complete range of amino acids and minerals);
  3. Improving the alkaline-acid balance and the full metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, helping protect against acidosis - the most alkaline forming of all natural foods, over 75 times moreso than apples - (by the special polysaccharides and naturally chelated minerals, trace elements and compounds);
  4. Providing the richest source of natural, stable, fully ‘chelated’ iodine (bound to protein ions) with all the micro-nutrients needed for its metabolism, like selenium. An essential food for the thyroid and hormonal system which in its turn regulates almost every bodily function.
Seagreens® arctic wild wrack seaweeds contain all the antioxidants and important ‘detoxification’ nutrients like zinc, magnesium, selenium, molybdenum as well as all the other minerals and trace elements, enzymes, amino-acids and important compound nutrients.

·         A range of natural foods and herbs including seaweed also have powerful, natural chelating properties:
Chlorella contains chlorophyll known to bind and remove cadmium, lead and mercury, and glutathione, useful in liver detox.
·         Spirulina may be especially useful in lead chelation .
·         Cilantro (Chinese parsley and leafy coriander) has been found to assist excretion of toxic metals including mercury .
·         NAC, MSM, charcoal, selenium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins A, C and the B complex are all useful adjuncts to therapy, all of which are contained in Seagreens®.

A low fat diet containing plenty of antioxidants including such vegetables as onions, garlic, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale will assist detoxification.

Guardian Weekend voted Seagreens® one of the two “best detox aids on the high street” in 2005.

Healthy hummus recipe

Another recipe by food blogger Rachel Gillon


 Many of my recipes seem to be about eating healthy meals, but what about healthy snacks or appetisers before a meal? A quick to make snack and a more healthy option than many of the cheesy and high fat dips in the supermarket is Hummus.

Made from chickpeas and tahini, a sesame seed paste it can be whizzed up in a few minutes and served with warm pitta bread, breadsticks and crudités. It is a great way to get kids experimenting with raw vegetables and my favourites are celery sticks, carrots, peppers and broccoli.

It is also one of those recipes that once you have a basic dish you can make different varieties by adding other ingredients. Coriander works well as does caramelised red onion, chilli and roasted red peppers. One of my favourites is to add approximately 2.5ml of Rosé Harissa and serve with some added chickpeas on top.

This is my basic recipe but you can adapt to suit your own taste by increasing or reducing the amount of lemon juice and yoghurt. For seasoning I use Seagreens Mineral Salt which    is a mixture of Hebridean seaweed and 50% Cornish sea salt.

1 400g can of chickpeas
3 desert spoons of Tahini
2 large garlic cloves
2 - 3 desert spoons of natural yoghurt
3 - 4 tbsp of rapeseed or olive oil.
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp of Seagreens Mineral Salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Place all the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, yoghurt, oil and half of the lemon juice and seasoning in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Taste and adjust the seasoning and if needed add the remaining lemon juice.

This is a good healthy snack and would be ideal in lunch boxes or simply as nice light lunch.
Hummus also makes a nice vegetarian starter with vegetables and pitta bread or on one big platter with the accompaniments for everyone to share. Add some extra small dishes such as olives, sundries tomatoes and its a perfect starter to a meal rather than a snack.

Simple salmon supper

Including fish in the family's weekly diet, particularly oily fish such as salmon, mackerel,tuna and sardines is something that some people struggle with. My own boys, given the choice would chose beer battered fish and chips before a salmon or mackerel fillet.
Over the years I have learned to vary the flavours and ways of cooking to ensure that they did get their recommended portions of fish every week

This salmon recipe is one that I cook regularly and if you're looking for a quick salmon dinner then this is one for you. I've also started using 'Seagreens' with many of my recipes and I find it works really well with this dish.

4 Salmon fillets
3 Tbsp Olive or cold pressed rapeseed oil
Zest of 1 lemon
2tsp Seagreens mineral salt.

200g Couscous
350 ml water
100g pitted olives sliced
10-12 Semi dried tomatoes roughly chopped
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
Seagreens Mineral salt to season.

To serve
Handful of torn basil leaves

Place the couscous in a heatproof bowl and pour over 350ml of boiling water.Cover with cling firm and leave for 10 minutes.
Place the salmon fillets in an ovenproof dish.  Mix the lemon zest and the olive or rapeseed oil together and pour over the salmon. Sprinkle the Seagreens salt over the fish and roast for 8 -10 minutes or until,cooked.

Divide the couscous between 4 plates and top with a salmon fillet. Scatter with torn basil and serve.
