Art Director Dermot Rushe and his Nutritional Therapist wife Emma have filled a gap in a big market – the market for a beautifully designed and well written health, food, people magazine that reaches out in an honest, simple and understandable way. Nutrition is a complex and layered subject, with scientific innovation and discoveries at every turn – hardly a day passes when we are not told what and how we should eat. From juices to cleanses, paleo, gluten free, vegan and raw food, increasingly fads and fashions have become as dominant and lucrative in the diet, food and cookbook industries as they are in the clothing industry. There is gold in them there hills!
Walnut magazine sets out to debunk myths and shine a light on the subject in a very holistic and jargon-free manner. Their contributors are experts who walk the talk.
Published in Bath, Walnut magazine sets out to debunk myths and shine a light on the subject in a very holistic and jargon-free manner. Their contributors are experts who walk the talk. Yoga teacher Helen Moss writes convincingly as to why rest is revolutionary: kindness and quilting are both very good your mind and your soul, Jo Emerson tells us; the confusing world of dieting should not stop you from seeking the truth in pursuing a healthy, happy lifestyle says Emma Rushe, and Kate Garden is adamant that electronic devices create behaviour, sleep and cognition problems in young children. Please spread the message!
Embracing the seasons, removing toxins, engaging our brains, developing a playful approach to life and learning about the provenance of your food are all key issues. An organic farm and shop near Cirencester is showcased and it is fascinating to read about Sebastian Pole’s life and business journey – he is the founder of Pukka herbs and teas.
I am passing my copy of this magazine on to my nutritionist, Heba Al-Zuhair of the London Road Nutrition and Wellness Centre in Bath because I enjoyed it so much and want to share the experience. For just £10 there is a 100 page gift here – informative, inspiring, colourful, tactile and pure. No degree in nutritional science needed.
