    If you've been working outside in the heat, drinking lots of water and sweating too, then you're likely low on salt. The best way to tell is to get someone to put salt directly onto your tongue and...

    Not scientific, but if my lactose intolerant husband is to eat yoghurt, I have to leave it to ferment (admittedly in my yoghurt maker) for 24 hours. Any less and he is ill, and much more and the...

    If it were me, and if the milk doesn't cause you any problems, I'd just go with the milk rather than use a sweetener - mind you, I drink my tea and coffee black, so am probably not the best for...

    I'd also check liquid soaps (especially some of the more eco-friendly ones, oddly), and if you're female you need to research your make-up. Many lipsticks and foundations have wheat in, as do some...

    Lamb and coriander/cilantro meatballs is a favourite, too. Put 500g of minced/ground lamb in either a food processor or a bowl, add a finely chopped onion, a couple of cloves of crushed garlic,...

    I also keep and use the fat off stock for cooking. I do much the same as RittenRemedy to clarify it. It's delicious!

    I tend to feel best with about 50 -65% fat per day, but it does vary. You'll need to experiment and also find out which fat helps you the most! Not much help, I guess, other than to try...
