Goji Tea

Start your morning with dried goji fruit infused into tea for a boost of natural antioxidants. Goji berries may also easily be eaten after seeping in tea. Goji is a traditional Chinese fruit used to for healing due to it's antioxidant properties which may support your immune system and eye health.

Persimmon Season!

Yes it may be Scorpio season (Happy birthday to all the Scorpios!), but I am excited about this season because it is persimmon season! The Japanese persimmon is the type that it most widely consumed and this sweet fruit is a good source of fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A. Persimmons are often eaten raw, but they have other culinary purposes as well. Eat Well, Live Well

I Love Red Peppers

Red bell pepper is one of my favorite peppers due to it's slightly sweet taste and it's high content of vitamin c and antioxidants. Red peppers can be eaten raw with your favorite dip (I prefer hummus!) , they can be stuffed with cooked grains or meat, they can be added to a stir fry or pasta dish, and the list goes on; bell peppers are very versatile. Do you fancy red peppers?? How will you incorporate red peppers into your meal this week??

Think Green

Green leafy vegetable (like kale, spinach and collard greens), asparagus, Brussels sprouts and broccoli are great sources of Vitamin K. Vitamin K is important as it a vital player in blood clotting, it helps transport calcium to support bone health, and it may also assist with preventing the formation of calcium deposits within blood vessels which can decrease the risk atherosclerosis development. So fill up on your green smoothies and add some broccoli to your pasta to fulfil your body's K needs.

Turnip For What!?

Turnips is a fall season root vegetable that are a less starchy alternative to the potato. The stems of the turnips are edible as well ("turnip greens "). Turnips are low calorie and a good source of Vitamin C, B Vitamins, and fiber. Cooking methods of turnips include: roasting until soft and golden, added into stews or soups, or mashed (just like potatoes). Eat Well, Live Well.
