The Burning Truth

   There is nothing that says British Summer more than the smell of burning charcoal on a BBQ as we fire it up ready to throw on some vege kebabs or sausages. We love them in parks, on the beach and in the garden with friends. In recent years as we have delved deeper into…

The Unsustainable Truth of Salmon Farming

We have all been sold salmon under the guise that it is good for us and sold farmed salmon under the guise that it is more sustainable. Whilst wild salmon like other wild fish has its benefits the same cannot be said for farmed salmon.   In 2017 there were record levels of mortality (25,000…

Pesticides in our Food

Hippocrates said “Let Food by thy medicine and Medicine be thy food” and I agree with him.

The Great British Beaches

The Special Coastal Edition It won’t be long until the days start warming up and we can start spending more time outside on our beautiful British coast. The problem is that our coast needs our help if it is going to maintain its natural beauty. Plastic has become the enemy of our seas and coastline…

The Jewel in Costa Rica’s Crown

In December last year I adventured to Costa Rica, to a coastal town called Nosara, located on the North Pacific Coast of the Nicoya Peninsula in Guanacaste about 100 miles west of the capital, San Jose. Whilst being a paradise with its beaches and wildlife it was the little things you noticed from spending a…

It was this realisation that prompted me to…
