Ghee Roasted Delicata Squash with Sage and Almond Pesto By Alexandra Dudley

2019-04-23T09:40:50+00:00April 23rd, 2019|

I love the colour of a delicata squash – bright yellow orange flesh with a dramatic green and yellow striped skin. When roasted the flesh becomes slightly sweet and the skin rich and nutty. Roasting it in Ossa’s Ghee deepens the flavour and offsets the sweetness of the mixed spice in this recipe perfectly. The [...]

Parsnip Speltotto with Crispy Sage by Alexandra Dudley

2019-04-23T09:36:54+00:00April 23rd, 2019|

I love the nuttiness of spelt and it is delicious in a risotto. The addition of parsnip means that you get a good dose of vegetables in this risotto (or speltotto). Feel free to use dried rosemary or thyme if you do not have tarragon but do not skimp on the bay leaf or sage [...]

Biohacking with Ossa Organic Founder Catherine Farrant

2019-04-05T08:36:58+00:00April 3rd, 2019|

When it comes to how to improve gut health I definitely believe in a holistic approach, it’s not just about what you eat but also your everyday lifestyle and the energy you keep around you. Being your own alarm clock Let’s start at the beginning, which for me is around 5:30am or 6:00am. After monitoring [...]

What is the Difference Between Stock and Organic Bone Broth?

2019-03-27T11:23:18+00:00March 18th, 2019|

Something I see quite a bit online and often over hear in supermarket aisles is ‘can’t I just buy some stock?’ Broth (often labelled stock) relies on high temperature, fast cooking techniques, which results in a watered down, non - gelling liquid; this means missing out on a lot of the benefits of a gelatine-rich broth. [...]

Grass-fed beef comes from cattle that eat only grass and other foraged foods throughout their lives, such as flowers, herbs and legumes. Whilst grain fed cattle can refer to cows [...]

2019-03-13T11:50:14+00:00March 13th, 2019|

  For a long time my focus on diet and food was for its impact to my body and what food and my diet could do to make me look better and make me stronger. While this isn’t the wrong focus, it shouldn’t be the only focus as another crucial impact that your diet can [...]
