Here is a nice easy one for you all. I absolutely love pasta! A nice simple pasta dish with a tasty pasta sauce was always an easy lunch for me to put together. However, most store bought pasta sauces contain so much sugar, and who knows what else! I have never looked back since making[…]

Vitamin Store The Cold Pressed Juicery Lite/dark juice bar Lite/Dark was a great little find for a warm drink and a snack. They have one of the biggest selections of shakes and smoothies i’ve seen, all with anti-oxidant wish ingredients. You can either go for an energy boosting shake, a detox shot, a warming juice[…]

Nut roast is a classic vegetarian dish over the festive season, but it’s reputation is not so great! For me nut roast was always dry, flavourless, boring and overall unappetising. However, the sweet potato adds moisture and the apricots and roasted pecans add lots of flavour! Ingredients 1 medium sweet potato (approx 300g-330g) 100g naturally dried[…]

These great little bites are the easiest thing to put together! They are great for on the go, or if you just feel like a guilt free snack! My favourite chocolate treat is definitely ‘After Eights’. I love dark chocolate and mint, for me it is the best combination, so it seemed natural that I[…]
Jams are the easiest thing to make, and they don’t need heaps of sugar either! Traditionally you make jam using fresh fruit, white sugar and pectin, with an equal ratio of fruit to sugar. That’s a lot of sugar!! I make my jams using fresh fruit and a little maple syrup or honey, depending on[…]
About A HEALTH MATTER
Thanks for stopping by
Hello, my name is Kimberley and this is A Health Matter. I’ve been working in the health industry for seven years now, which started in a nice little health food shop named As Nature Intended. It was here that I developed a love for healthy foods and healthy lifestyles.
From the beginning I was spending my spare time reading books on everything from gluten intolerance to Ayurvedic remedies. I was totally hooked and always wanted to learn more. I spent some time studying at the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM), but actually found that the best learning experience I had was from the customers I would talk to at work everyday. Sharing tips and ideas, and suggesting great books to read was fantastic, there was never a dull day.
