If you are thinking about becoming a vegetarian or vegan it's important to know how to replace the key nutrients that meat, fish and dairy provide. This simple list should help you navigate your way through what to fill your shopping basket with. 

Creating daily rituals with EYM candles.

It's often our daily rituals that can make us the happiest. Creating these rituals can be as simple as lighting a candle every evening, switching of your phone and writing in a gratitude journal. Just five minutes a day can have a very positive impact on your overall mindset.

The Five Minute Journal

How to keep a gratitude journal: Imagine how it would feel starting every day in 2018 in a positive mood, energised, and ready to take on the world. Instead of mentally replaying all your life’s problems and pulling the covers over your head, you chose to take control of your mind and focus on the good. A gratitude journal is a good place to start.

Lily's Short Guide to Paris

A short guide on where to stay and what to do in Paris, one of my favourite city's. From the best vegetarian cafe to my favourite lake side restaurant, a short trip to Versailles or a tour around Notre Dame, there is always something magical to do in this heavenly city.

Optimum temperature for eating & storing food

The other day I made a simple salad, plump room temperature tomatoes, with chilled spring onions, hot toasted pumpkin seeds and warm black rice. What made the salad so delicious was that each ingredient was at it's perfect temperature. When I mentioned it to our team it prompted a long debate about what exactly is the optimum temperature for our food.

Your Post Holiday Reset

It’s easy to fall off the bandwagon while on holiday, what with airport meals, piña coladas and not a single home cooked meal. Not to mention our motivation levels seeming to peak at swanning around on inflatable swans. And this down time is COMPLETELY FINE. A few days of indulgence is not going to do any lasting damage, so long as we make sure to regain the balance post-holiday. Here’s how.

Top tips for beating a summer hangover

While the British summertime has graced us with plenty of opportunity to talk about our favourite subject recently (i.e. the weather, i.e. “Isn’t it supposed to be summer? It’s been raining for two WHOLE weeks now!”), there has also been a whole lot of talk about hangovers. In particular, those ensuing a Pimms-fuelled staff summer party.

Eat your way to healthy skin

One rule definitely doesn’t fit all when it comes to skin. I find the best thing to do is simply try new things, be conscious of the changes you make and register how they affect your skin. Read our top tips on what to eat for healthy, glowing skin.

A Matter of Facts

In a society where we are bombarded with so many mixed messages about what we should eat, what is good for us and what isn't, if there is one inexplicable truth, it is that facts are facts. We are really proud of how we source and prepare our food, so we wanted to share a few facts with you.

On The Flexibility Of Our Detoxes, Plus How To Get The Best Deal

Our detoxes were designed with busy schedule in mind, which is why we offer a fully-flexible calendar whereby you can choose the exact days you would like your food delivered. You can also make some great savings if you buy your detoxes for the year in one transaction, and you don't have to use them straightaway.

How social media is affecting our relationship with food

Being very much embedded in the world of healthy eating we see every angle of how social is impacting peoples food choices, but also how it is shaping the way we look at our diet and how it makes us feel. Having a healthy relationship with food is so important, so we've devised a few practical tips for disconnecting from social when it comes to food.

In praise of the cherry

Upping our berry intake is firmly on the to-do-list, but maybe it’s time to put a little focus on the cherry. Cherries can put a smile on your face ten miles wide, so you’re in luck that they’re coming into season. They’ve got a multitude of nutritional benefits, not to mention they taste delicious too.

5 Minutes With... Alex Wright, Co-Founder of Dash Water

Dash was set up by two friends Alex and Jack, on a mission to encourage people to start drinking more water and stop throwing away deliciously-wonky fruit and veg. Here, we meet one of the half, Alex.

Now stocking: Dash Water

Food waste is a subject we care passionately about as a business, so we are thrilled to now be stocking Dash water. “British sparkling water infused with wonky fruit and veg” is the strapline. Crafted in the UK by Alex and Jack, we love that they are fighting food waste in a fun, and sustainable way. The lemon flavour is definitely my favourite.

3 days on the Protein Package, a Review

Working at Detox Kitchen I am lucky enough to eat a lot of delicious, healthy food. And I try to cook from scratch as much as possible for my meals at home. But don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy a sourdough pizza and an Aperol spritz. So detoxing is not something that necessarily comes naturally to me. This is why I wanted to document my experience on one of our detoxes to show that anybody and everybody can benefit from one.

My Day on a Plate, Lily Simpson founder of Detox Kitchen

So this is me on a good day. And I tend to try and have a few more good days in the lead up to a holiday, because let’s face it, everyone wants to look and feel good on holiday.
