here's a lovely warming and quick breakfast recipe from Deliciously Ella for those frosty winter mornings.  Porridge is a great way to start the day (as long as you're not gluten intolerant) as it's warming, wheat free and is a base to add as many tasty and nutrient-rich ingredients as you can.

We're all about POSITIVE EATING here at the Albany Street Clinic.  Eating well is much more about adding the good stuff in than taking the bad stuff out (with the exception of sugar).  There is so much that can be done to improve your nutritional intake and the results are a more robust immune system, more energy, weight loss, better skin & hair, balanced hormones (that goes for men and women) and balanced blood sugar levels.

Come in and see our nutritionist Jane Jamieson to make a start on positive eating before the New Year and, yes, you can still do this over Christmas - you'll still get all your lovely Christmasy so food there's no need to suffer!
