National Organic Week 2012

September 10th – 16th is National Organic Week in Ireland. I’m really happy to see an emphasis being placed on organic food, not only from health point of view, but from an environmental one also.

Ireland in particular has ideal conditions for producing organic food – fertile soil,  lush green pastures for animals to roam and graze. And rain. Lots and lots….and lots, of rain.  And let’s face it, Ireland has always had a strong farming community. One the country heavily depends on.

A Healthy Green Beverage For St. Patrick’s Day

What is this “green beverage” ye’ ask? Why ’tis only green tea of course. Now, I know I’d have a hard time convincing readers (Irish ones anyway) to drink green tea instead of beer on St. Patrick’s Day, but I thought it would be a fun way to share some of green tea’s health benefits. These benefits include fat loss, healthy glowing skin and a stress reduction effect on the mind!

Happy pancake Tuesday! Today is traditionally the day we (in Ireland anyway) attempt to eat our body weight in pancakes, before the beginning of Lent. While I may not agree with the overeating, I do have a healthier option for people who still want to enjoy pancakes today.
