Heal the Womb…. with a Yoni Steam?!

2017-biteable-beauty-yoni-steam-heal-the-womb-2

Every now and then I pick up a product I’m not sure I should write about. I’m all for alternative therapies when there is evidence-based fact to back them up (even if it is the placebo effect. If it works, who cares how?!) but when is little or no substantiating evidence to back something up, I always err on the side of caution. And so …

2017-biteable-beauty-sprinkling-superfoods-spirulina-flax-chia-seed-cinnamon

Sprinkling superfoods. It may sound faddy and it’s certainly backed by some fad-sters, but is there something in this trend? In fact, adding a little sprinkle of certain superfoods can add not just flavour and texture to your meals but also provide some proven health benefits that you might not even have considered. My nutritionist pals are at it, and I generally agree with all their healthy …

The Longer You Leave It…

2017-biteable-natural-organic-beauty-blog-roses

…the more difficult it is to come back to blogging. I only meant to take a few weeks off over Christmas and New Year, but last year got to me just a little bit too much. It was in many ways the best and worst year of my life. Yes, there was Brexit and Trump but looking at the year on a personal and professional …

Christmas Cooking: Easy Raw Superfood Truffles

I’ve literally just popped my truffles in the fridge to harden/set. This was a test run and a bit of an experiment to see what superfood flavours work well together as well as which spices and sweeteners are best to use. The Superfood Truffle Base – Cashew Nut Butter For this batch, I made a fresh lot of cashew nut butter. This is one of …

Minvita Organic Sprouted GABA Rice Risotto Recipe

Risotto is such a comfort food for me, I definitely favour eating it in the autumn and winter months (although I do a great spring vegetable risotto too!) The thick, gloopy rice, the gooey cheese, the deep but not too fussy flavours. Yep, risotto is one of the best Italian classics in my opinion. Here, I give you my twist on this classic, instead of …

Rebecca’s October Natural & Organic Hair Care Favourites

2016-biteable-beautyOctober-natural-organic-Hair-care-Favourites

Here are my natural & organic hair care loves from October. I’ll admit it. I’ve been a little superficial and avoided a couple of products on my beauty shelves because of how they looked. Having now cracked them open I can’t believe I didn’t try them sooner. The products in question are from Maple Holistics, an American cruelty-free natural hair care brand. I tried their …
