Butter !

Mmmmm....butter.  I'm licking my lips as I write the word.

It's probably my favourite food word.....oh who am I kidding, it's one of my favourite words.  Full stop!

It is a completely natural food which is essential to your health (especially when you eat organic)providing your body with essential fatty acids for hormone balance, heart health, glowing skin and energy.  It's also the most easily absorbable source of vitamin A, which supports the thyroid and adrenal glands - something very close to my heart. 

Margarine, on the other hand, is a processed product, created chemically from refined polyunsaturated oils. It's not a real food.

I tell you all this simply because I'm lovingly lathering organic butter all over the new love of my life.....

I used two small (individual) loaf tins and halved the recipe, which worked perfectly.

This recipe also is perfect sliced up, frozen, and then popped into the toaster when you're ready to eat (and cover in butter, like moi!)

IN SEASON: Sweet Potato!

"A little yummy for your tummy."
- Winni the Pooh

I'm quite sure he was talking about honey when he said this, but I like to pretend it was sweet potato he had on his mind that particular day.  Perhaps Winni was suffering the affects of hypothyroidism, like me?  This could actually explain his massive sweet tooth!

Yes the lovely orange root vegetable may have oodles more vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber than its white cousin - the regular potato, but did you know that sweet potatoes are outstanding for your digestion?

Paris Mash !

It's no secret that the French have a flair for taking the simplest of fresh produce and turning it into a rich dish full of comfort and flavour.

I think this is what I love most about French food.

Well, maybe after butter.
