We get asked this question a lot. So that’s why we decided to have a little fun with the answer and make it an interactive experience. In our 1-minute What is Nutritional Therapy? video, which was brilliantly animated by Studio Ala and takes pride of place on our homepage, we explain the concept of Nutritional Therapy, why it’s important, how we use it and how you can benefit from it. We also tell you about how it inspired us to create the newsletter that you’re reading now, which we hope in turn inspires you to live a healthier London life
Go RAW at M Restaurant
With steaks costing up to £150 you may have decided against a visit to M, one of the latest restaurants to open within the Square Mile. But within this uber-stylish establishment you will also find RAW, a more casual dining experience offering smaller plates, the majority of which are as the name suggests, raw. The menu specialises in fish but they also serve great vegan options. Early birds can pop in and enjoy coconut quinoa porridge or homemade granola as early at 7am, while late owls can while away the evening at the sashimi bar supping on a raw juice followed by fruit ceviche for dessert. Even the wine list gets our stamp of approval, featuring several unfiltered, organic and bio-dynamic options. Raw at M Restaurant: 2-3 Threadneedle Walk, 60 Threadneedle Street, London EC2R 8HP.
Hands on at the Ginger Pig
The Ginger Pig has been around for over 20 years, achieving a reputation that is second to none. It now sustainably farms over 3,000 acres of North Yorkshire moorland and supplies meat to its 7 butchers’ shops in London. Its sustainable farming methods means field and crop rotation, free grazing and a natural diet for its livestock. The Ginger Pig now runs butchery classes which are designed to take people back to basics, teaching them traditional butchery skills, how to source and buy meat and about where meat comes from. Classes run for 3.5 hours, cost £155 per person, and include a 2-course supper with wine, as well as the meat you have prepared in the class to take home!
Primal Snack Box
Every New Year we like to bring you some of our favourite companies that help make it easier to stick to those healthy resolutions. Companies like the Nutribox and Graze help to ensure you have a supply of healthy snacks to hand, but for those of you on more restrictive diets like Paleo, you may be starting to need a bit more inspiration as January progresses. If this sounds like you, you’ll be pleased to hear that Primal Snack Box offers a weekly delivery box with plenty of snacks suitable for those on a Paleo/Primal diet, from £17.99 per month. You’ll find the standard Paleo snacks like trail mix and nuts, but there are also exciting options such as kale crisps by inSpiral and snack bars by Primal Kitchen. There’s even something for the chocoholics with raw chocolate provided by the Raw Chocolate Company.
