A short post from me today, as I’m spending some time with Little Miss Green doing all those things I have said ‘yes’ to over the past week, but not actually got around to doing. That must be so frustrating at the age of seven! Just a quick mention then, for Earth Day, which falls…

Food – precious commodity or basic human right?

By Mrs Green | April 19, 2008

What did you feed your child for lunch today? Something healthy and nutritious? Something quick out of a packet? Something nuked in the microwave? Chips again because it is the only thing they will eat? Did they ask for chocolate or sweets afterwards or a piece of fruit?

Mr Green goes high raw ready for summer

By Mrs Green | April 17, 2008

Mr Green has adopted a high raw diet (about 50 – 60% at the moment). He’s a feast or famine kinda guy and has gone overnight from meat and two veg, coffee and alcohol to lots of fresh fruit, salads and little else. He’s still having his large cup of strong coffee (with soya milk…

taking a break!

By Mrs Green | April 3, 2008

My brain is overloaded! Do you ever have times when you feel really overwhelmed with everything? I feel like that at the moment and I’m noticing those first spiralling motions of depression. Better to nip it in the bud and not allow it to take its grip……..
