Easter is synonymous with bunnies, treasure hunts and lots and lots of chocolate. In fact around 80 million Easter eggs are eaten in Britain each year — that’s a lot of chocolate!

So this Easter, try a cup of our lovely chocolatey tea for something a little bit different. It makes a nice Easter gift too!

The teapigs range contains only the very best whole leaf tea, not the dust found in a normal tea bag. The teas come in their special tea temples, a biodegradable mesh bag that gives the leaves lots of room to infuse, so you get all the taste of loose tea but with the convenience of a bag.

Organic Coconut Oil – Your Best Friend

The health benefits of extra virgin organic coconut oil is a great way to look and feel your very best. It can be used for a variety of things you need in your life. You can get rid of costly products and avoid side effects. The organic nature of it means you won’t have to deal with any ingredients that aren’t good for you either.

Many people with serious skin problems including psoriasis have been able to benefit from coconut oil for skin. The deep layers of skin are reached when you use coconut oil. As a result your skin starts to repair itself from the inside out. The moisture will be retained too so you can say goodbye to dry skin once and for all.

If you want smooth skin you should use coconut oil as it will help to exfoliate the damaged and dead skin cells. What remains is soft and silky with a very pretty tone and color to it. Should you be seeing fine lines and wrinkles on your body the use of coconut oil can help to make them disappear.

We do lots of damage to our hair from the wind, the sun, coloring it, and styling. Coconut oil for hair though leaves it soft and manageable. It can also help to stop the itchiness and dryness of the scalp. That can often be the result of harsh chemicals found in most shampoos. The nutrients in coconut oil will also help your hair to grow faster and to have a lovely shine to it. If anyone in your household gets lice this can also help to kill the eggs and the adults quickly.

When it comes to your diet, you should use coconut oil for cooking due to the nutritional benefits. You can enjoy delicious tasting foods but without using lots of fats. The foods you prepare will taste amazing too so you will want to continue to use it for all of your cooking needs. If you are interested in eating healthy but also enjoying your food then coconut oil is the way to make it happen.

FoodTV Promotes Prudent Portions

With obesity rates rising, it is more important than ever that people eat healthily and take enough exercise. That is why FoodTV provide hundreds of simple and nutritious recipes, as well as demonstration videos to view online. However, when you begin to experiment and create your own dishes you shouldn’t forget the advice gained from FoodTV.

Every meal should include a variety of vegetables, carbohydrates and protein. You should also follow these tips for simple portion control:

Pasta
When cooking dried spaghetti, you should prepare a small handful for each person. Obviously this won’t work with some of the numerous varieties of pasta – a handful of penne pasta is not the same as a handful of tagliatelle.

Instead, a 230 gram serving of pasta is roughly the same size as a tennis ball. To make your pasta dishes even healthier, choose the wholegrain option.

Meat and fish
Both meat and fish are great sources of protein. However, nutritionists recommend you limit your intake of red meat, such as beef or lamb.

An average serving of meat should be about the same size as a deck of cards or a chequebook. A serving of fish – which is high in Omega 3 – should be about the same.

Vegetables
Whenever possible you should steam vegetables, as this means they will retain more of their nutrients. A 115 gram serving of cooked vegetables should be around the same size as an orange.

Dried fruit
While dried fruit will last much longer than fresh, it has around five times the calories by weight. To make sure you don’t overindulge, you should remember that a single serving of dried fruits should be about the same size as an egg or a golf ball.

Salad dressing
There is no need to add spoonfuls of dressing to add life to a salad. Instead, a drizzle of about five grams (roughly the size of your thumbnail) should be sufficient.

FoodTV provides hundreds of hours of online food-related videos, as well as easy recipesbudget cooking and drinks for all ages. Users can share recipes through the FoodTV community.
