Welcome to my personal web site and blog. Some areas of the site still aren’t as complete as I would like them to be, but slowly but surely it will get there. There just never seem to be enough hours in the day and when I do snatch some minutes, I seldom get the desire to get on my computer as Maya, my gorgeous eleven year old daughter is far too alluring!
Please feel free to 'drop-by' to the site whenever you like. You can also come and see me in my practices which I run in Marylebone, London and Leicester, if you want my help sorting out a health problem. I treat a wide variety of medical conditions, from those that affect your digestion, heart, mind, weight or hormones, as well as supporting and treating patients, young and old with cancer, working alongside eminent Oncologists and Surgeons.
I also love seeing people who just want some inspiration as to how to eat well and deliciously to maximise their wellbeing and/or to improve their performance-having built up a strong reputation amongst Film Studios, actors, professional athletes and sports professionals for the past two decades.
I believe everyone is unique and I therefore treat you as an individual, taking into consideration all aspects of your health and lifestyle.
If you can't make it to my practices, you might want to arrange a skype or telephone consultation( see more info on the practice page) or look at my just-launched paperback book GOOD FOOD FOR LIFE or past articles on the Daily Mail, London Times and Observer websites for health and nutritional advice. More details of my other books can be found on the books section on this site.
FROZEN YOGHURT AND THE PROLIFIC VEGETABLE JUNGLE
What an incredible summer we are already having; no better way to start the long summer holidays, with homemade ice creams and frozen yoghurts already starting to fill the freezer and Maya’s stomach! The raspberries are luscious, needing nothing more to make them into a simple frozen sorbet, and the rhubarb is thick-stemmed and sweet, which for me, when stewed with apples and a touch of orange zest and chilled alongside thick creamy Greek yoghurt, is a perfect pudding.
My vegetable garden though is resembling a bit of a jungle, as I continually struggle to keep on top of the weeds, as the night time tropical rain showers feed their growth, but amongst the foliage I’m finding plump broad beans, peas, beetroot and plenty of salad leaves and fresh herbs, so these are forming the base of many a salad. This season, I’m doing more with chives and parsley than I have previously done, as I’m loving the tangy, oniony taste of the chives alongside smoked fish, such as the mackerel which we are having a bit of a taste for.
Luckily there is plenty left over from our salads, as Maya is craving kedgeree, so I’d better see if the hens have been obliging....
