THE CHEESE LADY – our favourite specialist cheese shop near Edinburgh!
Good to know: wonderful science is now showing us that Dairy foods like cheese and yogurt actually protect heart health thanks to their unique fats – lots more on this in 2023! And no doubt due to their beneficial microbes too (but that’s just my hunch!)
So it’s been another busy but hugely rewarding year. With Georgie helping me behind the scenes, collaborations with other health professionals and a growing number of our farmers turning towards more nature-friendly food production, together we’re helping health to thrive!
Remember you can always book a FREE drop in call with me if you’d like to find out more about how I can help you – it’s what I love to do.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
