A sold wholesome varied breakfast will ensure you have the energy and nutrients you need for a good day. Generally store bought cereals are full of sugar and chemicals are not good for you. Vary your breakfast through the week, here are some of my recommendations:

Downward Facing Dog

Downward Facing Dog
Picture by Lauren L Poole

If you go to any Yoga class we do this pose over and over again. When your a beginner it can feel repetitive and harsh on the shoulders and wrists. This pose has so many benefits as it is an inversion, reversing bodily fluids as well as strengthening and stretching so many parts of the body. This like any posture can take an hour to learn and a lifetime to perfect, once nearly perfect the advanced practice can be performed. Also when in a yoga workout class like mine, your constantly moving and resting here for a few breaths lets students catch their breath and bring their heart rate down. You don't have to stay in downward facing dog, you can go into a modification for a few breaths or even child's pose. Below i go into a lot of detail on this posture (taken from various sourced). I wright these to refresh my memory and learn new things from reading, if you find it interesting too then great, share it or let me know if there is anything to add:-)

Singapore Rooftop Herb Garden

The secret to successful growing of food is experimentation, love and organic fertilizer. I grow seeds in different areas of the house and garden, then plant them in different pots and place in different parts of the rooftop and water differently until it works. Also we make organic fertilizer using a worm compost.

Check out the latest updates and how to grow everything on my youtube channel:

Please message me if you want cuttings plants or have questions. I have load to swap for  a plant i dont have.

In back there is the most sucessfull ginger and oregano, i think thats due to the large pot. Rosemary in the front

Detoxing three times a year

Detoxing not only clears out the toxins in your body which will stave off illnesses, makes you feel and look fantastic but also gives all your internal organs a time to recover from working so hard to clear out the toxins which you consume through food, skin and breath.

Detoxing also reminds you of you good eating habits, teaches you new cooking methods and helps you kick any bad habits you may have. I  try to detox several times a year using the various types of detoxes listed below.

We will have some further details on the detoxes from nutritionists on Sustainably Healthy later this year, so please sign up for updates to receive these by email.
