What’s in my shopping basket – Richard Collisson

What’s in my shopping basket ?

As I work in the Health Zone clinic, I do some of my weekly shopping in the shop. I always choose organic if I have the choice and Healthzone sells many organic products you can’t buy in a supermarket. Here are some of my favourites that I would recommend.

My kids eat tons of eggs and Healthzone sell the best free range organic eggs in Wimbledon at a competitive price with the supermarkets, but much better quality, flavour and bigger too. Although supermarkets sell free range organic eggs they are still mass produced and the yolks always look anaemic and pale to me, so whatever they are feeding the chickens can’t be very nutritious.

I like to cook curries and always use organic Coconut oil, Copura and Biona are the best value brands in Healthzone. Unlike polyunsaturated oils, such as almond oil, coconut oil being a saturated oil doesn’t get rancid and is good for massage and dry skin. Coconut oil is also the source of caprylic acid, a supplement sold for treating Candida.or thrush, but coconut oil works equally as well. 

My kids like to chew gum when we travel on holiday, but most conventional chewing gum, instead of sugar, contains the artificial sweetener aspartame which has been linked to brain tumours, and has been shown to accumulate in the brain. It’s build up in the nervous system does however cause involuntary twitchy eyelids in people who chew a lot of gum. Luckily Peppersmith mints & chewing gum do not contain aspartame or sugar so avoid this problem. Other items my kids like for travelling are dried mango and Panda Licorice bars.
