• Greenhouse Zenhouse

    Ok, let’s face it. We didn’t get the greenhouse just to grow the veggies there, oh no. No! We got it, so we could WATCH the veggies grow. And if you want to watch your plants, fruit and beg grow, the best way to do it is to make it all “zen”. Paul got me an olive tree (giant, gorgeous one!), I got myself some shelves and sorted! Time for relax now 🙂

  • Fermented barszcz for anaemia

    I cured my anaemia with drinking  1/3 of a glass of fermented beetroot juice (barszcz) on empty stomach each morning for 3 months. I tried molasses with lemon juice (also a great remedy) but barszcz seemed to work much faster. Its garlicky taste is heavenly, although for many it may be way too strong.

  • Onion syrup for cold

I decided to take matters in my own hands, do research and simply heal myself.  To get rid of my nasty cold that has been making me feel really unwell…

  • Sweet potato and red lentil curry

    Absolutely delicious and cleansing! Very warming, especially in those April/ May rainy days when the weather is unsure if it’s winter or spring. Warms the belly, heals the soul. Feeds 6, so if it’s too much, you can always freeze it. 500 grams of red lentils, rinsed 2 handfuls of spinach 1 big sweet potato, chopped 2 heap spoons of mild curry powder 1 heap spoon of hot curry powder 1 tub of tomato puree salt and pepper to taste half cup of oat milk Mix everything together, let it boil and simmer for about 1.5 hrs. You can serve it with basmati rise or on its own. Enjoy! Bardzo…
