Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
#homeopathyhour which runs on a Monday evening from 8-9pm is shaping up into a really lovely place to hang out.
There's lots of info shared, links, tips as well as networking and chat. It's a really friendly group of regulars and we have new and experienced homeopaths. We usually have a theme (which I DM people on the Sun/Mon so you've time to have a moment or two to think about it in advance if you like and as a reminder) and we've got some great guests coming up in the weeks ahead too.
If you'd like any more info feel free to get in touch. But do come and play out. New participants are always welcome and even if all you do whilst you find your feet is retweet posts then it's a great start and your followers get to see information they may not have seen otherwise.
One of our regulars said 'This is great fun folks! A very informative space, to chat and exchange. Come on over and say Hi, and be part of the homeopathic community out there!'
And another 'Yes, highly recommended if you’re on Twitter… And a good reason to get onto Twitter, if you aren’t already...! .... Great subject and although I am usually a regular, I may not be free to join in tonight, but I will stay tuned... I would encourage everyone on this group to join in, no matter where you are in the world ! 8pm UK time.'
We've just run our 14th session and I'm really enjoying my involvement. It's brilliant to be able to chat with a group of like minded individuals about something I'm incredibly passionate about. And to know we're getting more positivity around homeopathy out there into the twittersvere. I like that too.
So lovely to be heard. So great to have people out there asking questions. And being heard at the same time.
Mum has been an absolute ambassador for eating out in her new vegan lifestyle and has been brilliant at requesting what places can do for her - either ringing ahead/visiting in advance or asking on the day. Each time she's been really pleased with the options and returned often to find that more is available.
Today's trip to the Wheatley Arms again reinforced that. And not only that, there were two dishes available on the menu (one to come without the parmesan) that were naturally vegan.
Service was fabulous - friendly, helpful and engaging. As for myself, eating raw (whilst I've been corrupted by a certain person recently into cooked vegan and enjoyed some great meals, I want to return to fully raw for a while and regain that fantastic energy that comes with eating raw and exercising well), they were brilliant. I requested what I'd like - they checked out options and then provided a beautiful salad of leaves, sweet potato, courgette, pepper and sundried tomatoes.
I've learnt over time that dressings make a salad, and as salads become a big part of eating raw I've learnt to make dressings. Restaurant dressings don't often do much for me so I take my own and then REALLY enjoy the salad they've provided.
Today's (new to me - I've had it as a raw soup before with more cucumber in - 1:1 ratio) was my mango and cucumber dressing which was fresh, light and tasty. And went well with the great salad I was brought.
Yum. It was a quick dash home for #homeopathyhour - the twitter driven chat hour that I run on a Monday evening, then maybe it was that I'd been out and the meal was smaller (still a great size it's just my salads tend to be HUGE) than usual, I really fancied dessert.
Again another new to me - but worth sharing again - the cinnamon, vanilla pud. Simple, easy to make and tasty. The way I like 'em.
So went another lovely Bank Holiday Monday afternoon and evening... Here's to a great week of eating well, exercising lots, laughter and love.
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
