NOURISH: ‘TO FEED, CHERISH, PRESERVE OR SUPPORT’.Between the demands of your family, friends, job and general life admin, how often do you press pause and think about what really feeds you – mind, body and spirit?The dictionary definition of the word ‘nourish’ that comes from the Latin ‘nutrire’, reminded us that sometimes, it’s the simple things in life that feed us the most. So in the spirit of that other great Latin maxim, carpe diem – get ready to splurge on three of our favourite ways to feel truly nourished.Eat: A new entry on the 2015 superfood list, Black Salsify – otherwise known as black oyster plant, serpent root or viper’s herb – contains copper, vitamin C and iron as well as magnesium, potassium. Great for encouraging strong bones and healthy hair, the fact that it as a gut-boosting prebiotic makes it an all-round winner in our book. Simply scrub, cube, soak, slip off the skin and roast with some butter and garlic.black-salsify-healthy-foodPlay: The ‘golden ratio’ game. Created by psychologist, Barbara Fredrickson, it entails actively noting three positive occurrences in your life for every negative one.
