Andrea Cullen – more on me

No one likes the sound of their own voice!

Here is me speaking in an interview with Declan Dore a few months ago. I speak more about my story, my career path, and where I am now 🙂

Bone Broth for Healing

How do you do yours?

I wanted to share with you all the recipe for bone broth that I recommend to my clients. Bone broth is an amazing nourishing and healing food; especially for those on a gastrointestinal healing programme, recovering from illness, going through the wringer with food poisoning (add brown rice or quinoa to the broth), or if embarking on a nutrition bomb-packed detox (if detoxing aim to add some sea-weed to the mix).

Simply make a giant pot of the steaming healing liquid and enjoy often during the day.

Extra can safely be frozen in Pyrex dishes or glass jam jars and removed from the freezer the night before you plan on enjoying to permit the soup to defrost naturally.

I have always been an avid reader; spending a whole day curled up on the sofa in between the franticness of an active childhood was nothing strange to me. My mum was and is the very same; only she quite literally devours books at the speed of lightening, and she is my go to person for a perfect spelling and grammar check.

Books are where you lose yourself as a child and live a double life. I travelled far and wide; Mary O’Hara transported me to the great plains of Wyoming in My Friend Flicka and other novels, I was transported into The Enchanted Woods by Enid Blyton and then became a member of The Famous 5; I travelled with Toad in The Wind in the Willows, fell in love with The Fox cub Bold and The Animals of Farthing Wood, and I sailed boats in balmy summers in Swallows and Amazons. And who forgets Peter Rabbit? My childhood is mile stoned by books when I wasn’t out creating my own adventures with my brothers.

“I think the irony is that as we become adults we lose ourselves to a double life of others expectations, should do’s and must be’s, only to later re-find ourselves in books.”

We all have a very personal journey with books, and so my list really can only reflect what I have been drawn to and found helpful for me or helpful for my clients. I am incredibly time stressed so my love of reading books and the amount read in the past years sadly isn’t reflected in the vast number of books I have on my shelves. I will someday, get through them all, they all speak to me and when the time is right I will learn their mysteries, lessons and insights.

Books that I have found helpful on my own journey and that I recommend to various clients include the following. I cannot promise to have read each from front to back; however I have found some gems within these books which helped me with what I was after in the moment.

The secret to the following books is to read what you are drawn to; don’t ask questions or analyse the front or back too much. With books there is a magic far more special than logic can define, I am convinced that the book chooses you…..
