Hydrating During Cooler Months

Do you struggle to stay hydrated during the cooler months? If so you are definitely not alone, in the cooler days the whole day can pass with me only drinking one or two glasses of water. Hydrating the body is important no matter what the weather is doing as dehydration can lead to electrolyte imbalance in the body. Electrolytes that are found in the body are calcium, potassium, chloride, sodium, magnesium, phosphate and bicarbonate. When these are not balanced symptoms of nausea, light headedness, headaches, cramping, irregular heart beat, diarrhoea and fatigue can occur.

Some foods can assist in keeping the body hydrated like berries, melons, oranges, grapefruit, celery, tomatoes, peaches, lettuce, zucchini and cucumber, so during cooler months you may want to add the above (depending on what is in season ) into your diet.

In addition you can add slices of lemon or orange to your glass of water, increase the herbal tea intake or drink warm water. If you find yourself doing a lot of exercise or have been sick you may want to consider making yourself an electrolyte drink.


Electrolyte Drink

2 rosehip tea bags or 2 tsp hibiscus tea leaves 
2 cups filtered boiling water
1 cup of freshly squeezed orange or apple juice
½ cup of lemon or lime juice
1/8 to ¼  teaspoon salt
2 cups to 1 litre of filtered water


  1. Place the tea bags or leaves in a teapot and pour in 2 cups boiling water, add ¼ cup of the lemon juice and let the tea cool down.
  2. When cool strain the tea into a litre jar and add the rest of the ingredients adding as much water as you like. If you add more water be sure to drink it all so you get all the properties of the drink. You can take the drink with you for your day however just be sure to keep it cool if using apple juice as on occasion the apple juice can ferment.

Big News for the Vegan Chef Training

I am grinning from ear to ear after recently completing modules 2 - 5 of the Vegan Chef Training.  
This is the 9th time I have taught these modules and once again I am reminded about how good this training really is.
The photos are below of the modules just past.   
Now it is time for me to overhaul the Vegan Chef Training and I have picked the very best out of the training and will facilitate it from now on in a condensed format. It will also be taught on a more individual level with only 1 - 3 participants in the course. 
And the really exciting piece is you get to choose dates that suit you and your own schedule.
As a result of this more personal approach, the price of the Vegan Chef Training will increase considerably. The price has not increased in four years so a price increase has been well overdue.  
However there is some very good news. If you book into either the course that is set in January/February 2023 or set your own dates with Veet and pay before the 30th June, 31st of July or 31st December you will receive a considerable discount.
