BY SOPHIE LEAVER
HEALTH & WELLBEING WRITER
It’s no secret that breakfast can be the most important meal of the day.
A balanced breakfast with the right mix of nutrients and food groups can power you through the day and help regulate your energy levels. With so many delicious, nutritious and easily assembled breakfast recipes available, it only makes sense to make use of them for dinner too! The 2015 food trend ‘Brinner’ (Breakfast/Dinner) is far better than brunch and there are plenty of options to play around with. But this isn’t about reaching for some sugary muesli or grabbing tea and toast in a hurry. The great thing about the ‘Brinner’ trend is that it’s an opportunity to combine simple but fresh and healthy ingredients. Our bodies don’t crave rich, heavy foods for breakfast, but rather desire energising, and wholesome foods. The best bit about Brinner? Your lefts-overs will be ready for breakfast the next morning!

- Carrot Oil for Face Thank you for your message. Cold pressed carrot oil protects and preserves the nutrients of the carrots. Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face. Frying grated carrots which involves heat and oil will remove some of those nutrients. Hope this helps.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
