OUR BLOG

I can’t find a blog post, recipe or product on your site

We have a handy wee search bar in the main menu of our website, as well as in the sidebar. Type in anything there – from cacao to quinoa to auto-immune – and it will show you all the results for your search. Failing that feel free to contact us here, we’d be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Why do you recommend soaking nuts and seeds in your recipes?

Soaking nuts, otherwise known as activating, removes the nut’s outer layer of phytic acid. This means the valuable nutrients (vitamins and minerals) within the nut are much more digestible and bio-available for your body to absorb. In many of my dairy-free ‘creamy’ recipes the soaking also enables you to achieve a silky smooth cream texture in your food processor or blender. I’ve written more about the why and how of soaking and activating of nuts here.

How can I print your recipes?

You can print our recipes simply by clicking the “Print” in the recipe table. Too easy!

Where can I find the nutritional information for your recipes?

Instead of focusing on the exact nutritional information for each recipe, I choose to highlight the benefits associated with the key ingredients of each new recipe. You can find this information at the beginning of each blog post.

Can I share one of your recipes or recipe photographs on my website or social media?

Please get in touch if you would like to share one of our recipes or recipe photographs. Generally speaking, we are happy for you to share our recipe photographs if you link back to the recipe itself on our site and clearly credit Be Good Organics as the creator of the photograph. However, please do get in touch before doing so – we’d really appreciate it if you did!

If you’d like to share a particular recipe on your website, please do take the time to contact us first. It’s really important that you do this, as our Google rankings will be negatively impacted if lots of people republish our recipes – making it hard for lovely readers like you to locate them! It can also negatively impact your site’s rating if you duplicate our content as well – so all round, we’d really love it if you could get in touch with us before republishing anything.

ABOUT BUFFY
Is Buffy available for consultations in relation to plant-based nutrition?

Yes, Buffy is able to offer a small number of one-on-one nutrition consultations, specifically in related to plant-based nutrition. These are available both in person, and via Skype/FaceTime. Read here for more details and to book.

I’ve been diagnosed with Graves’ disease, what would you recommend I do?

Firstly we would recommend visiting your doctor, and potentially also an endocrinologist who specialises in thyroid health. They will ensure you are tested correctly via blood tests and other diagnostic tests, and also put you on any conventional medication you need immediately to reduce your symptoms.

In conjunction with that, I would then highly recommend a natural supportive approach, which will help to address the underlying cause of the Graves’ disease and your hormonal imbalance. Have a read of my about page here to start, where I talk about my recovery from Graves’ disease and what I did to cure it. I’ve also talked about a number of the lifestyle changes I made in the following blog posts:

Top 3 Reasons to Switch to Organic Now

The Shocking Truth About The Beauty Industry

Top 10 Natural Skin Care Tips for Summer

In summary, I transitioned my diet to plant-based and organic wherever possible (removed animal products such as meat and dairy), switched all of my skin care to organic and natural alternatives, changed our household cleaning products to natural chemical-free options, and tried to reduce my stress levels. I’d definitely recommend signing up for my newsletter here, as I regularly talk about lifestyle changes that can help cure Graves’ and other autoimmune and chronic diseases.
