A healthy breakfast from Primrose's kitchen
PRIMROSE Matheson is proving that healthy food can also be quick, convenient and delicious.
One of county's newest food businesses, Primrose's Kitchen was a finalist in the Innovation category at last year's Taste of Dorset Food Awards just five months after its launch.
The range includes beetroot and ginger and carrot and cinnamon muesli. Vegetables may sound like a strange addition to the breakfast menu but Primrose believes they have in important role to play in providing a healthy, balanced diet.
Primrose has a background in naturopathic and complementary health studies, and wanted to use her knowledge of how to keep the body naturally healthy to devise a wholesome breakfast – and a breakfast that can be enjoyed at any time of day.

"Naturopathic thinking says a diet that doesn't include food that is natural or wholesome produces toxins that poison the body. A naturopathic diet can support weight loss and help to prevent health problems such as digestive issues, food sensitivities, allergies, high cholesterol and stress," Primrose explained.
Apart from carrot, beetroot and gluten-free oats, Primrose's muesli includes other carefully selected ingredients to improve health and add texture and flavour. The list includes milk thistle seeds, which help protect the liver from toxins and promote the regeneration of new cells. There's no added salt, and Primrose sweetens the mixture using only Agave nectar, which has a very low glycaemic index so won't give you the highs and lows associated with normal refined sweeteners.
Primrose produces the range from her home in Rampisham. Rather than being cooked, ingredients are slowly dehydrated at low temperatures to maintain as much goodness as possible. The finished muesli is high in fibre, high in protein and low in bad fats.
The nutritional expertise comes from Primrose, then her recipes have to get the seal of approval from her tasting panel of friends and family.
"The aim is to incorporate healthy eating into people's busy lifestyles – and making it tasty too. People won't eat cardboard just because it's good for them," Primrose said.
And is sounds like she's getting the balance right; after attending events including the Bridport, Shaftesbury, Wessex and Dorset 2012 food festivals, Primrose has received a lot of positive feedback from happy customers.
Muesli by Primrose's Kitchen is available from local shops including Maiden Newton Stores, the Salt Pig in Wareham and Wimborne Deli, it's also served to B&B guests at La Fosse in Cranborne, and can be purchased by mail order at www.primroseskitchen.com
