There are many different types of winter squash, each one with a unique and incredible flavor. Most of us are familiar with the butternut, a wonderful gateway into the world of winter squash, but if you're looking to expand your squash repertoire, I encourage you to visit your local farmers' market. You're sure to find an exciting assortment to try! This recipe works well with many different types of squash and is a perfect opportunity to try something new. Make this as side for your next gathering, or let it shine bright as the main entrée. I love to make an extra large batch of the mixed grains and add it to salads for a quick lunch option.

My tribute to the truly incredible Rolling Stones — I was lucky enough to see them at a small gig at the Brixton Academy and mind-blowing is the only word I can use. In case you don’t know, "Ruby Tuesday" was released in January 1967. Now, on with the juice! Rich, nutritious beetroot and carrot juice combined with sweet creamy pineapple juice, a mellow fresh hit of basil and a little cheeky kick of ginger. This is one of the nicest juices on my detox program — hope you agree.

For various reasons, I like to practice my yoga at home. While this gives me a lot of freedom to practice it the way I want to, it also means that I have to be my own teacher. This in turn means that the little corrections, the tiny push which teachers provide are things I need to do on my own. While it's possible to do this (I take videos of my sessions), you sometimes never know if you're still making mistakes. Even if you go to a yoga class, you may not be getting enough individual attention to rectify the small missteps — both physical and mental — that may hold you back from developing your practice.

A new study has revealed that a rewards system for about 10 days may be a good way to help children start eating veges. When 3-4 year old children were given a sticker each time they tasted a wee bit of a vegetable they disliked, this very act of rewarding them seemed to change their attitude towards the vegetable. Infact, after a few weeks, children began to rate the vegetable in a more positive way.
Verbal praise did not have a similar effect as rewards.

Cereal manufacturers in Britain have come under heavy fire after a Channel 4 program revealed that some of the best cereal brands marketed in the country contained very high levels of sugar and salt. According to the program "Dispatches: do you know what's in your breakfast?" which is scheduled to be aired on Monday, a 30g serving of Kellogg's Frosties contained more sugar levels than a Tesco jam doughnut.

A new study has pointed out that intake of cereals and bread containing wheat aleurone is good for health. Wheat aleurone is a novel wheat grain fraction with high levels of potentially health-promoting compounds.
New clinical trials with ready-to-eat cereals and bread containing wheat aleurone have been performed, and showed increased blood concentrations of tentatively beneficial compounds such as betaine, and decreased homocysteine and LDL-cholesterol which are both associated with heart disease risk.
Buhler produced aleurone fractions in their pilot production plants in Switzerland, which were then incorporated into ready-to-eat cereal by Buhler, and into bread rolls by Barilla in Italy. These products contained 9 g aleurone per portion.
