We'll be at Spexhall Village Hall where I'll be demonstrating how to make traditional sauerkraut and a Suffolk version of Kimchi.

They'll be a fabulous fermented beetroot drink, tasty and great for your gut and plenty of interesting foods, flavours and ideas to try. You'll get a chance to make your own vegetable ferment from a host of seasonal produce.  You can even bring your own garden vegetable glut to begin fermenting.

New Ultimate Prebiotic Ferment

I've been researching the benefits of inulin, a soluble fibre that helps combat constipation and also feeds your natural microbiome (gut bacteria). One of the best sources is asparagus, ideally consumed raw. For me there are two options: either marinate asparagus or ferment it. I'm going for the second option today as fermenting means it will keep a long time. Perfect time of year as it's in season and local. I'll let you know how it tastes (the white thing on top of the asparagus tips is a piece of cabbage to stop them rising up the jar and spoiling).
Come to my forthcoming Wild Fermentation Workshop on Saturday 10th June to discover more about the benefits of fermenting easily and safely at home.

New Garden Venue

 We've been busy over the summer creating my wonderful new treatment and exercise room. My new log cabin is private and tucked away at the rear of our tranquil garden. Inside, although cosy, the wood-lined room is spacious and not overly fussy, allowing clients to feel at ease in the peace and quiet. My house and the new garden room is set amongst fields a mile from the main Spexhall road. 
I'm offering £5 off your first treatment, one-to-one yoga session or health consultation in my new space.
That's me inside, just the finishing touches of blinds and curtains to put up this weekend. I hope you love this space as much as I do!
I look forward to seeing you here.
