Maggie's Tips

  • Beetroot is rich in soluble fibre, which helps combat high cholesterol and high blood sugar. It is also rich in folate, potassium and manganese. It is a great addition to a detox plan when eaten raw. known in Chinese medicine as a blood tonic.
  • Source white mulberries in HF shop or health food section of your supermarket.
  • Cannot source mulberries try gogi berries, dried blueberries etc
  • Exchange feta with fresh ricotta cheese or mild goats cheese
