LIVINGLIVING

natural immunity free from antibiotics with

a diet of mother's milk, which is converted

from rough native pasture and heather.

Once this milk source dries up after nine

months, the ruminant Red Ruby Cattle

enjoy a natural diet of forage, herb-rich

grass and hay. This 100% grass-fed diet

ensures a healthy gut, feeding their own

microbiome as well as helping the cattle

play a vital role in the cyclical maintenance

of the land, grazing the pasture while

nurturing the soil and providing food and

habitats for insects in the process.

Once the Red Ruby Cattle reach

natural maturity around 31-36 months old,

as opposed to the industrialised method

where cereal, grains and chemicals are

fed to the cattle to speed up the growing

process, they are taken to a local familyrun farmyard-based

abattoir.

The farm also rears completely free

range chicken, with the breeding flock

reared to one day old by one farmer

before another picks up the reins to slowly

grow the birds, retaining total control over

the genetics and health of its chickens

during their lives.

The truth

about fat

T

oday's diet has changed

more dramatically than

at any other time in our

history. Since the industrial

revolution, food has

become more plentiful, seasonality and

local produce has eroded, and we have

increased our intake of food. We now eat

more processed foods and large amounts

of processed oils, meaning our mission

from the 1960s to avoid fat has in fact

become the polar opposite. Processed

fats and fatty oils are lurking in more foods

than ever and we are consuming them at

a rapid rate.

Fats occur naturally in the food we

eat, including foods you don't readily

associate with being 'fatty' like avocados,

walnuts and almonds. It is often the

processing of these fats that can change

the effect they have on our body and turn

them from safe to problematic.

Different types of dietary fats:

Trans Fats

Found in highly processed foods. They

are incredibly difficult for our body to

process because they interfere with our

natural insulin production, promoting

diabetes and obesity.

Polyunsaturated Fats

Unhydrogenated Polyunsaturated Fats

are very unstable, they oxidise easily and

when heated too high they can become

damaging to our body. Once taken too

hot the fatty acids can suppress our

immune system. However if eaten in the

foods they occur in, in their natural state,

like seeds, nuts and oily fish they are

brilliant for boosting our omega 3.

Monounsaturated Fats

Found in olive oil, avocados and nuts,
