Inspired by her life with husband Arun Nayar and son Damian, 6, on their bio-dynamic farm in the English countryside, Elizabeth Hurley, 43, told People magazine that she is “developing a line of products … with a view that they’re not only going to be healthy, because they’re organic, but I’m obsessed that women find alternatives to eat which are low in fat.”
She says her organic farm produces low-fat products, which may help reduce the risk of breast cancer.
“I think we know now that many issues with women’s health can be linked back to their diet,” she says. “We’ve been saying for a long time that many breast cancer specialists recommend sticking to as low-fat a diet as possible, which all has to do with how estrogen is stored in the body.”
She also emphasized the benefits of low-fat milk and other organic products.
“For a long time we’ve been telling women to try and follow a low-fat diet and try and switch from a high-fat milk to a zero-fat milk. Now we genuinely believe if any of even the zero fat milk is crammed full of antibiotics and hormones it can be very detrimental to your health.”
And on a random note…Elizabeth also breeds hogs on her farm!
Over in the Cotswolds region of England, she is using her 100-acre estate to breed Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs. After she raises a healthy and hearty clan of hogs, she sells the meat to butchers in the UK.
Liz has admitted that she recently was “obsessed with sausages,” saying she’d “like to eat them every day.”
The Hurley Old Spot pigs are quickly making a name for themselves: It is the most popular brand at the Jesse Smith butcher shop in Cirencester, AOL UK reported. Manager Perry Meredith told the Gloucestershire Echo that “her pigs are excellent quality.”
Assistant manager Andy Lambert said, “Old Spots are our best-sellers, and people recognize the name. They must have heard she’s gone into farming.”
