Mediterranean diet

Expanding on our last blog's theme "Everything Spanish", I have just read about a study which claims that " A Mediterranean diet is better than statins for tackling heart disease".
The study found that people already suffering from heart problems are 37% less likely to die early if they eat a diet rich in vegetables, nuts and fish *.
We have a shop stocked with lovely organic seasonal vegetables, nuts and this week organic fresh and smoked salmon! So start your mediterranean diet now!
If you want a particular meat or fish please let us know on the Monday morning.
For a full list of what's in the shop this week see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
Have a good week!
* If you are already taking statins do consult your GP before making any changes to your medication.


PS if you or a friend can't come to the shop you can take a virtual tour! You can then email in an order and we will endeavour to deliver it - see our delivery page for details.

Everything Spanish!


I hope you weren't too inconvenienced when the shop was closed last Monday. I managed to go to Mallorca for a few days to spend time with my extended family. We ate some lovely home cooked food using wonderful organic local produce.
In the shop this week we have a range of organic Spanish produce - aubergines, nectarines, peaches, fresh figs, melons and water melons. A typical Mallorquin summer dish is Tumbet. It's often served with fried eggs and you will need some good quality bread because it's quite rich.


In the shop this week we'll have organic fresh and smoked salmon, kippers, beef mince, pork sausages, whole chickens, bacon and ham.
If you want a particular meat or fish please let us know on the Monday morning.
We also have lovely local 'spray free' raspberries and red and black berries - delicious with your breakfast muesli!

Have a good week!
