Love green peas, do you!

Green peas are one of the most nutritious of the leguminous vegetables and are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, and manganese. They are a great source of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fats in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). These essential fatty acids makes green peas an ideal food for brain and cardiovascular health and their phytosterols are vital for helping to lower cholesterol levels in the body. They are also a fantastic weight loss food since they have the ability to ward off hunger and keep you feeling satiated for long periods of time. Green peas contain a compound called coumestrol which has been shown to help lower the risk of stomach cancer and they also contain anti-inflammatory properties making them a particularly good food for those who suffer with autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, COPD, heart disease, lupus, fibromyalgia, and bursitis. Green peas have also been found to help lower the risk of type 2 diabetes due to their relatively low glycemic index and blood sugar regulating properties. Fresh green peas are easily grown in patio containers or gardens and can often be found in the produce section of the supermarket year-round. Frozen peas are a good alternative when fresh is unavailable as they retain a large percentage of their color, flavor, and nutrition. Try mashing or blending green peas with a little avocado, garlic, and fresh herbs for a delicious and satisfying dip or spread. Green peas are a versatile and nutritious food that can help to increase good health.

I am a fan of these!

Brazil nuts are an excellent source of complete protein and omega-6 fatty acids as well as vitamins E & B-complex and minerals such as selenium, zinc, copper, and manganese. They are a gluten-free food and are often used as alternative to wheat for those who suffer with celiac disease. Brazil nuts are known to help lower LDL “bad cholesterol” and increase HDL “good” cholesterol in the blood which can help to reduce the risk of strokes and heart disease. They are also the highest natural source of selenium which makes it an ideal food for strengthening the immune system and helping to reduce the risk of breast, esophageal, liver, stomach, prostate, and colon cancers. Selenium is also vital for thyroid gland function and for helping to prevent blood clotting and coronary artery disease. Brazil nuts are the perfect food for athletes and those looking to increase strength and endurance. They are also good for neurological and cognitive health as they can help to improve memory and nerve function. Brazil nuts are crunchy and sweet and are a concentrated source of nutrition and energy. In fact, only 2-4 nuts a day are needed to obtain all their complete nutritional and health benefits. Consider chopping them up and sprinkling over a salad with a squeeze of fresh lemon and fresh herbs or adding a few to a smoothie or trail mix. Brazil nut oil has been used for thousands of years as a therapeutic remedy for skin problems such as dry cracked skin, calluses, rashes, burns, bruises, eczema, and psoriasis. Brazil nut oil is also often used as a carrier or base oil for aromatherapy and massage therapy applications. Brazil nuts can be found online or at your local health food store.

Yum, love cherries. We used to have a cherry tree when we lived in BC.

Cherries are a medicinal powerhouse fruit that are packed with vitamins A, C, E, and minerals such as iron, copper, zinc, potassium, and manganese. The high levels of anthocyanins and antioxidants found in cherries make them an excellent food to help the body fight against neurological diseases, diabetes, and breast, lung, colon, and stomach cancers. Cherries also contain potent anti-inflammatory properties and are particularly beneficial for those suffering with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, lyme’s disease, frozen shoulder, arthritis, gout, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and sports injuries. Cherries are a well known “brain food” and can help to strengthen cognitive function by helping to improve memory, focus, and concentration and help to reduce brain fog. They are also a fantastic food for cardiovascular health and can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and heart attacks. Cherries are an excellent source of melatonin which is known to calm the nervous system, decrease irritability, relieve neurosis, ease headache conditions and promote a solid nights sleep with a balanced sleep-wake cycle. This soothing effect on the brain neurons makes it an essential food for those who suffer from insomnia or for those who have high anxiety and stress in their lives. Cherries are rich in fiber and are a great natural remedy for constipation. When in season fresh cherries are a quick sweet snack that can easily be eaten while on the go. Frozen cherries are also a great alternative that can be added to smoothies for a nutritional boost. Frozen bananas and frozen cherries can be blended together in a food processor for a delicious dairy-free & fat-free ice cream that kids and adults both love. Pure cherry juice is also another alternative when fresh is unavailable and can be found online or at your local heath food store.

Zucchini isn't my thing but guess it should be. How about you?

Zucchini is a highly alkaline food that is one of the mildest and easiest vegetables to digest. Zucchini is a great source of vitamin A, C, & B-complex as well as minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, and manganese. It is high in fiber and low in calories which makes it a great weight loss food and helps to reduce constipation and bloating. Zucchini is rich in poly-phenolic antioxidants which are essential in helping to protect the body from aging, illness, and disease. Zucchini is also a good source of potassium which is an important intra-cellular electrolyte that helps to maintain fluid balance and normalize blood pressure and is vital in helping to prevent heart attacks and stroke. Zucchini contains phytonutrients that are important for prostate health as they can help to reduce the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BOH). They also contain powerful anti-inflammatory compounds which can aid asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Zucchini is also known to be particularly beneficial for hypertension, cataracts, macular degeneration, atherosclerosis, diabetes, edema, multiple sclerosis, and stomach and colon cancers. Zucchini can be eaten raw, steamed, roasted, or sauteed. Raw zucchini can be spiralized into spaghetti and is a healthy substitute for pasta dishes for gluten-free, grain-free, raw food, vegan, vegetarian, or paleo diets. Zucchini is also wonderful added to salads, soups, wraps, nori rolls, and stir fry. Fresh zucchini can be readily found at your local grocery or health food store and seasonally at the farmer’s market.

Not a big fan but I am going to be!

Broccoli is a nutrient rich vegetable that has several proven health benefits. It is very high in vitamins, minerals, and phyto-nutrients such as vitamins A, C, K, & B-complex, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, & iron, and beta carotene. Broccoli is packed with anti-cancer compounds such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol, which are known to help prevent stomach, colon, liver, breast, skin, and prostate cancers. It also has the ability to fight against H.Pylori bacteria that can cause a great amount of discomfort in the digestive tract. Broccoli is excellent for strengthening and sharpening cognitive abilities such as memory, focus, and concentrations skills. It is also great for helping to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Broccoli is highly beneficial for the nervous system and is known to ease migraines, hypertension, anxiety, and nervous ticks. It contains natural antihistamine properties and is fantastic for warding off seasonal allergies, watery eyes, sinusitis, sinus infections, colds, flu, and bronchitis. Broccoli is well known for its ability to protect against heart disease and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, strokes, and heart attacks. It can also help to lower high blood pressure and maintain good cardiovascular health. Broccoli is also great for building strong muscles and bones as well as for helping to prevent injury or future osteoporosis. It is high in fiber which makes it helpful for regulating blood sugar, preventing constipation, and curbing overeating. Broccoli is known to be excellent for vision and eye health and can significantly reduce the risk of macular generation and the need for cataracts. It is high in protein and contains more protein per cup, than that of rice, while only having half the calories. Broccoli is most nutritious when eaten raw or steamed and can be easily made into a delicious creamy fat-free soup by adding fully steamed broccoli, carrots, and onions to a blender with a pinch of salt and pepper. Blend until smooth for a nutrient rich and satisfying meal. Steamed potatoes can also be added for a heartier, creamier version, if desired. Broccoli can readily be found at your local supermarket, health food store, and/or farmer’s markets.

Love cashews, do you?

Cashews are a crunchy, yet delicately sweet nut that is treasured around the world for its flavor and health benefits. Cashews are high in protein and are a rich source of vitamin B-complex and essential minerals such as iron, selenium, zinc, and copper. They are also packed with anti-cancer compounds called proanthocyanidins that have the ability to starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing. Cashews are highly beneficial for lowering blood pressure, preventing heart attacks, preventing gallstones, reducing the frequency of migraines, providing energy boosts, strengthening bones, and promoting healthy skin and hair. Cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts and contain a high amount of oleic acid which is a heart healthy monounsaturated fat that is great for the cardiovascular system. They are also excellent for the nervous system and they are known help keep muscles and nerves relaxed and free from tension and constriction. They can also help the body become more flexible and aid in elasticity of the tendons, muscles, and joints. Cashews have the ability to satiate hunger which decreases overeating and aids in weight loss and weight management. They are also good for overall eye health and they contain a bioflavonoid called zea-xanthin that helps to prevent age-related macular degeneration. For the maximum health benefits try to find raw cashews that are unsalted. Cashews can be eaten as a snack or added to salads, and vegetable or rice dishes. Cashews can also be ground into a nut butter and used to spread on celery sticks, apples, cucumbers, or mixed with dried coconut, honey and spices for a delicious and healthy desert. Good quality cashews can be readily found online or at your local health food store.

Fennel is considered both a vegetable and a herb due to its wide ranging nutritional and healing benefits. Fennel is rich in folic acid, vitamin C, magnesium, cobalt, iron, and essentials oils that contain powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is excellent for indigestion and is commonly used as a natural antacid in order to help reduce acidity and inflammation in the digestive tract and to facilitate proper absorption and assimilation of nutrients from food. Fennel has potent anti-flatulent and carminative properties which means it is able to prevent and stop the formation of gas in the stomach and intestines. It is also known to be highly beneficial for sinus congestion, bronchitis, renal colic, anemia, hypertension, macular degeneration, constipation, bloating, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome. Fennel is used to help protect against both cardiovascular disease and cancer. It contains an important anti-inflammatory phytonutrient called anethole that blocks both inflammation and carcinogenesis, which is the mutation of regular cells into cancerous cells. Fennel also has the ability to ease and regulate menstruation by regulating hormonal action properly in the body. Fennel is used amongst nursing women to help stimulate consistent milk flow for their babies. It is also known to help strengthen hair, prevent hair loss, relax the body, and sharpen the memory. Fennel seeds can be chewed after a meal to aid in digestion and to remove bad breath. Fennel seeds can also be made into an effective medicinal tea by steeping the seeds in hot water for 10 minutes or more. Fresh fennel juice can be combined with fresh celery, cucumber, and/or apple juice for a healing and medicinal drink. Fresh fennel juice can also be used topically to swollen or inflamed eyes to reduce irritation, swelling, and fatigue. Fresh fennel has a crunchy, slightly sweet licorice flavor and is a wonderful addition to fresh salads, smoothies, soups, stir-fry, potatoes, and other vegetable dishes. Fresh fennel and fennel seeds can be generally found at your local supermarket or farmer’s market. Fennel tea, capsules, tincture, and extract can all be found online or at your local health food store.
