My Yuyo Yerba Mate Mission

I’m on a mission. And that mission is to spread the word about the wonders of yerba mate. A wonderful South American beverage made by steeping the ground leaves and stems of the yerba mate plant.  This ‘super plant’ has a host of fantastic health benefits, yet it’s simply not as famous as tea or coffee…

Random Health… Quick & Healthy Breakfast Smoothie!

I’m not really a morning person. Actually, what on earth am I saying? – I’m not a morning person at all! I usually grab a banana and cereal bar as breakfast, as I don’t have time to eat before I leave for work, and it’s therefore an ‘on the go’ breakfast, or a before starting…

Wimbledon is in full swing at the moment, and if you’re like me you might be wondering how to get a little of their energy. Well, I have one way I can think of and it involves some lovely green powder, a whisk and a pretty bowl.  No, I’m not making a potion, just some…
