So why aren't more people eating it? Raw kale on its own isn't the most appealing and can actually be quite difficult to digest. However, some simple tips to improve its digestibility and how to use it may actually make the transition to including this in your diet much easier.
When a horror movie is over, we feel a sense of relief. Phew! But our past memories can do better than any horror blockbuster, for they have become golden classics that we keep playing, watching and screaming, weeping, cringing, getting upset about, over and over again, without wanting or knowing when or how to exorcise and switch them off.
Researchers recently discovered the existence of Egg Precursor cells (EggPC) in the outer cortex of female ovaries. These immature egg cells can mature into fresh, young eggs. Scientists even believe that these intact, immature egg cells can be found in a woman of any age.
The night before surgery is always strange, sleeping in a hospital bed waiting to get tomorrow over and done with, so the recovery process can begin. Thoughts of home and getting back to some form of normality fill my sleepy head.
The holiday season and the parties in the run up to Christmas can be a total minefield for coeliacs and those with gluten intolerance. Whether it is a cocktail party or an office Christmas lunch, there are lots potential hurdles. But if you plan ahead, you can still have as much fun as everybody else.
My issue with vending machines is that their position is such a useful one that could be utilised to provide us with nutritious foods and energy at moments when other options aren't available. But instead, what we are offered is an array of unhealthy choices that provide us with a quick energy fix and little, if any, nutrients.
This is good news for the tobacco companies who are looking to sustain their business model and have cleverly introduced vaping as the acceptable face of nicotine addiction. If it doesn't do any harm then what's the problem?

Last week I was in Camberwell, South London when I was drugged, shaved, cut open and had part of my insides removed. There must have been about 40 people involved in total, mostly foreign migrant workers. They pushed me around and made bloody well sure they got what they wanted as quickly as they could before I was sent on my way, back into the mean streets of the capital. It has taken me since then to build up the strength to write this blog. Now I want to thank those who did what they did because they probably saved my life.
Now I don't knock Denise's weight loss. The fact that she is feeling better than she has in ages is great - but the truth is Lighter Life is possibly one of the most extreme diets out there.

Joined-up healthcare is something we all want and the NHS needs. Enabling the disparate elements of our healthcare system to work together and share information will save time and money and ultimately benefit patient care.
It is sadly true that one of the biggest and most neglected challenges facing the global community is still malnutrition, specifically undernutrition. It affects more people than any single disease and is an underlying cause of nearly half of all child deaths.

I've been investigating this phenomenon lately, asking teachers what barriers they face, parents what frustrations they encounter and generally observing so called 'problem children' in schools, homes and how they interact with others.
"I don't think my dad ever loved me." This is the statement I hear my clients repeating time after time. It's irrelevant who says it, men or women, although it is more common coming from women, given that an unhealthy relationship with their dad, i.e. 'Key Male Figure', tends to reflect in their relationships
If you want something, you can and you will get it. Stop letting your fear of being great hold you back. Because that's what this is you know. You're subconsciously sabotaging yourself from greatness. You are holding yourself back, not anybody else.
Survival of the Fittest is a 10km obstacle race run by Rat Race Adventure Sports. Written like that, it looks fairly manageable. Waking up on Saturday morning, schlepping to Wembley and then joining 1000s of other, much fitter and happier looking people, it was less so.
