                       Garlic Power.......

Garlic is a powerful medicine valued for thousands of years. The Egyptians used its energy giving properties and the Greeks and Romans considered it to be the elixir of youth. Ayurvedic doctors in the 1st century AD in India prescribed Garlic for the heart.
Garlic is a truly wonderful remedy for infections, having antibacterial, antiviral, anti parasitic and anti fungal properties, so a good all-rounder for treating colds and flu and lots of other nasties..... and who cares if some people think its smelly....We Bears lOve it...  its goOd for you.....

Fresh Turmeric

Turmeric is a perennial herb of the ginger family. The active constituent known as curcumin has been shown to protect against free radical damage to dna. Curcumin reduces inflammation by lowering histamine levels and by increasing production of natural cortisone by the adrenal glands. Turmeric has a long list of traditional medicinal uses and is a favourite among herbalists due to its effectiveness as an anti-inflammatory, used to treat conditions such as arthritis, injury, asthma, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, skin disorders, elevated cholesterol, liver disease and cancer.

       ~ SCRUMMY RECIPE ALERT....... 

      Beetroot, Carrot and Potato Cakes


Beetroot, Carrot and Potato Cakes

These cakes are really tasty, and work well as a main dish served with couscous salad and soured cream - as a breakfast with poached egg... or with a comforting dollop of creamy mash potato served with lots of hot red onion gravy. mmmmmm! Serves 4-8


     2 medium beetroots  peeled and grated

  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 2 handfuls grated or shredded potato (unpeeled is fine)
  • ½ medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 25g plain flour
  • Optional: chopped spring onion, garlic, chilli or herbs 3 tablespoons olive oil 
Beetroot = healthy you

Preheat oven to 150C/300F/gas2. In a large bowl combine the vegetables; mix in egg, salt and pepper. Add the flour and any extras; stir well to blend. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Using 2-3 tablespoons of mixture per cake drop 4 cakes into the frying pan. Flatten each out with a spatula, and cook until just browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a tray in the oven and keep warm, then repeat with remaining mixture until finished. 


More magical times ahead... come and join us on 24th November to celebrate LIGHT and all things beautiful.. xx Bear LoVe
