Getting a ’peas’ of the action
They're a common part of the British diet, so it's easy to overlook the healthy living benefits of those sweet green delights, garden peas!
Tasty in a huge number of different scenarios, you can whizz them into a moreish soup for a starter, have them as a side dish to a main meal or bake them into any number of delights.
Why not try using them alongside mint? The flavour combination when this pair of green delights are put together is wonderful.
The sweetness of this great food also means that they could provide a perfect healthy addition to kids' meals.
And, of course, peas aren't only great tasting, they also contain some fantastic goodness.
The goodness in peas
There's fibre in these fantastic little things, as well as Vitamin C. If you cook the peas by steaming them, this can play a part in making sure a lower amount of Vitamin C gets lost through cooking.
You'll want to keep as much Vit' C as possible in your peas. There is also protein in these perfect packages of flavour.
One great thing to keep in mind about peas as the signs of spring can be seen all around this May is that they are is season.
So why not take advantage of this and add some of this fantastic food to your next meal, or simply re-stock on peas so that you're ready to have some to enjoy the next time you fancy?
Green (pea) fingered
Another wonderful thing about peas is that it's possible for the green fingered to have a go at cultivating them outside. Put some effort in and you could have a crop of perfect peas to pod in your garden or allotment! Imagine how exciting it could be to be picking peas from your very own garden?
Don't dismiss peas as a dull option, tuck into these tasty treats!
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
