Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons

Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons.
.
2 brown onions
Olive oil
Teaspoon brown sugar
Couple of cloves
Couple cloves of garlic
Chicken stock (made from a previous roast chicken dinner and frozen in small bags ready for use) or a well-flavoured vegetable stock.
Slice/s of sourdough toasted.
Quantities make enough for 1 self-isolating hungry person or 2 less- hungry people  according to the amount of chicken stock you use.
The cloves, sugar and caramelisation of the onions are what give the soup its zing! .

Cooking and eating healthily is important

Cooking and eating healthily is important.
when you're in Corona lock-down or self-isolation. 
Our grandparents were clever to never waste any food.  They had to be.  They were rationed. We are used to abundance so I'm going to be demonstrating my ways of using leftovers for tasty recipes that could stretch across a week. 
Video clip is a Sunday roast- chicken, baked potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic. 
Photos and are a chicken, leek and onion pie with the remainder of the roast potatoes sliced on top and then baked in the oven topped with seeds and breadcrumbs (that fell off my sourdough loaf when I sliced it) and olive oil on top.
Video chicken stock from all the meat and veg remains and additional herbs and leeks and onions and green vegetable water.
Healthy eating helps immunity. .

In case anyone was wondering why I haven’t been posting – I am on week #3 of still coughing – NOT Corona Virus

In case anyone was wondering why I haven't been posting - I am on week of still coughing - NOT Corona Virus.- recovering from a normal Flu virus. Hoping my immune system will keep fighting on without resorting to antibiotics.
Ginger and turmeric are anti- inflammatory.
Here are some of the supplements I have been taking. I have now added Zinc into the mix too. .

When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden Is the way to go

When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden 
Is the way to go.
I cannot recommend her more highly. 
I've just had my second appointment with her.
.
She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.
.
Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart. .
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.
.
It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.
.
It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL - good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.
.
Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.
.
It even checks for cancer markers.
.
Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Viddhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.
.
The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180. .

Well done on raising so many thousands of £s auctioning the controversial one shoulder dress for your charity @girlguiding as a result of - wearing a dress that had slipped off the shoulder and was deemed inapropriate in the House of Commons. .
It's easy to have clothing malfunctions and indeed my own @zara top in the photo can be worn in all ways - exposing shoulders or not.
.
Women are continuously judged and often more harshly by other women than by men. .
My lifestyle consultancy takes me into organisations where women prefer to often dress androgynously- in trousers- in black- to not be noticed for what they wear- but only for the excellent job they do.
.
I also speak in schools- where teenage girls feel the need to look perfect- especially on their social media- affecting their mental health.
.
I hope my own social media feed, that is never filtered,  inspires and can show women - young and old - that we can all be individual. Embracing our quirks and flaws make each of us unique and special.  No celebrity I have ever dressed had a perfect body or flawless face in my past 30 year career as a celebrity stylist. .
We shouldn't be afraid to wear what we feel comfortable in- however- if we work in an organisation and are customer facing,  then we are the face of the brand and should dress accordingly. .
Be true to yourself, don't compare and don't let the judgement of others break you. .

Sometimes it’s a specs day

Sometimes it's a specs day. .
If you wear contact lenses it's good to give your eyes a rest some days. Especially if you get dry eyes as you get older.
.
I've worn contacts since the age of 12. Until recently no one ever saw me in specs. The contacts were straight in first thing in the morning and removed last thing at night. 
I felt 'less than' in my specs- not confident, not sexy - not me. Now I feel I can embrace wearing glasses and have all sorts of styles, shapes and colours. 
My specs have become an additional fashion accessory- to embrace wearing-  not an embarrassing encumbrance.
