    It has been a funny old week. On Tuesday I was in The Sun newspaper (link here) talking about alkaline diets, detox smoothies and the like. I only started writing this blog a few months ago and to be in the UK’s biggest selling newspaper so quickly is a little bizarre. Clearly I owe a debt of thanks to the excellent Amanda Ursell, who is just as passionate about this stuff as me, but a little less sweary (at least in public).

I wished I had resisted the

    Ella Woodward appeared on daytime television this week, cheerful cooking some vegan treats for Holly and Phil on ITV’s ‘This Morning’. I was at work and thankful to miss this delight, but a succession of suitably horrified Tweets from Miss South kept me in touch (thank you – I think). Apparently, Ella was cooking her version of Spaghetti Carbonara. As she is a vegan and wheat avoider, I hate to think what this could mean, but apparently it contained such bizarrely inappropriate ingredients as
