We’re all about the little ones, but we’re not talking babies this time.
Anthocyanins, the colour pigment in blueberries, are flavonoid compounds that are located in blueberry skin. The smaller the berry, the greater the amount of skin to volume and, therefore, the more bang for your berry!
Anthocyanins are antioxidants, which means they mop up free radicals that can be damaging to our cells. Also implicated to have anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and brain health benefits, these little weaning wins are berry good news.
A good source of vitamin C, Manganese and vitamin K too, they are the definition of small but mighty! 💡A berry boost! Our top tip is to turn your berries into compote or pop them in your porridge as it cooks. Not only does this mean you can use up any that are perhaps a little passed their best, but this increases the accessibility of the anthocyanins as the heat breaks apart the skin.

Is brown rice or white rice better for you? White rice is lower in calories, fat, & carbohydrates, but brown rice has more protein & fiber. Brown rice also contains more magnesium & zinc, but white rice contains more iron. White rice has been bad-mouthed by nutrition experts but there are still a few advantages to this popular type of Grain. White rice is enriched with B vitamins & iron. It’s easier to digest so it can be consumed by those suffering from gut conditions like diverticulitis or diarrhea. White rice can be recommended for those who need to follow a low fiber diet due to problems with their gut. It also can be a better choice for those with kidney disease. The disadvantages to white rice are that it lacks dietary fiber and it can increase the risk of developing diabetes because it can rapidly increase blood sugar levels. Brown rice is considered more nutritious because it’s a whole grain & only the outer husk is removed while it’s bran & germ (which include additional fiber) are retained. Fiber can help with weight management & constipation. Whole grains like brown rice can help to maintain a healthy body weight, reduce your risk of certain types of cancer, reduce inflammation, balance her insulin levels, & lower your triglycerides. Brown rice is a better source of antioxidants such as vitamin E & selenium, compared to white rice. The disadvantages of brown rice are that it can be difficult to digest because of the amount of fiber, phosphorus, and potassium that it contains. Brown rice isn’t recommended for people with gut issues & kidney disease. in summary, brown rice & white rice both have nutritional benefits in your diet. I like to trade off depending on what i am cooking! #brownrice #whiterice #healthygrains #nutritionalbenefits #healthnutritionwellness
Biggest carrots we've ever managed to grow, and they're nearly straight too! 🤣 🤣
Sooo stoked about getting raw cow's milk from a local farmer!!! I used to be so skeptical when it came to the argument about whether raw or pasteurized milk was better. Especially with all the warnings, outcries, and articles on either side that literally contradict one another.😒 After doing my own research it seems to come down to 2 major issues:
1) Health Benefits of raw milk: good bacteria, allergy help and gut support, etc.
2) Safety: removing the chance of getting horribly sick on milk.
Although the FDA denies it, there is compelling evidence to show that raw milk may offer a tremendous amount of health benefits for those who can digest it. The healthy bacteria, minerals, enzymes, have reportedly have helped people with skin irritations, allergies, lactose sensitivities, gut health, etc. However, because it is a raw product, it doesn't last as long and there is a chance of bad bacteria being introduced with poor sanitation or infections in the cow's udder.
Pasturization seemed to solve two issues: 1. It appeared to make milk "safer" by heating the milk to kill everything, (but as a byproduct, it kills many of health benefits as well).
2. This process also gives milk a longer shelf life which allows the seller to transport milk all over the country and make more money before the nutrient depleted milk goes bad.
Honestly, I can understand the argument for pasteurization in standard large-operation dairy farms with hundreds of cows standing in their own filth. How in the world are you supposed to keep them all clean AND find the cow with mastitis in the midst of that!? However, if you go down in scale to a 1-2 cow opperation, the sanitation practices of the farmer and the health of the cow become far more observable.
With all that in mind, this is why I decided to give raw milk a try. I found a farmer with a couple cows who's passionate about quality and started raising her own cows after experiencing the tremendous health benefits for her family.
I respect people who drink raw milk as well as those who choose pasteurized, but I encourage you to do some research (if you haven't already) and make your own decision.
Just in case the #flu
is trying to keep you down..... here's a little tip on sinus infections. Have you ever noticed that after cutting a #buttonmushroom
and turning it sideways, it resembles an ear with something protruding out from its center? That's because their #antifungal
properties help #preventearinfections
and to #preventsinusinfections
when you add them to your daily diet- which should by now be rich in tropical oils such as coconut oil and coconut products. You can keep healthy and free from both infections naturally when you eat the fungi. Im a true testament to this fact. I was born prone to catching bad ear and sinus infections. At one time during my childhood, my sinus infection was so bad that my eyes were shut closed with mucus and I was blinded for a few days. After feeling well enough to eat, my mother was brought to silent tears while trying to feed me because after turning her back for one minute, stopping the feeding too, she turned back only to witness my little hands reaching up onto the table, to grab food before eating like a caveman. The sight must have broken her heart but because she didn't want me to hear her cry, she silently gave it to God through her tears. Thankfully so because he heard her payers. I love mushrooms and now try to eat them daily. I eat them raw, sauteed or fried in coconut oil, in soup, salads and stuffed too. Its a combination of the life cell repairing benefits from the coconut oils #mediumchainfattyacids
plus the #nutritionalbenefits
from the #mushrooms
that have helped me to overcome ear infections. Also adding mustard greens and radish to my daily consumption has helped by working in conjunction to nearly eliminate all of my sinus and allergy issues and if they can work for a once daily congested, allergy prone individual, such as myself, they will surely work wonders for you. Just remember all healing comes by faith, and faith comes from hearing the word. Now go get your #mushroom
on! #learntoreadwholefood #readwholefood #healthandwellness #coldandfluseason #healthhack #cellularhealth #healthying #cellularlevel #cellularfood #molecularlevel #earhealth #sinusinfection
Easy baked rosemary potatoes sprinkled with turmeric and black pepper. (Love topping my salads with these!)
⭐️White Potatoes give your body vitamin C, B6, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
⭐️Rosemary is full of antioxidants, and improves digestion and skin/hair health.
⭐️Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory, and I find it extremely beneficial for my joints (especially when I take it paired with a good fat such as avocado, olive oil, or fish oil).
These are so simple to cook; just chop, add some oil, sprinkle your seasonings, and bake for 30-45 mins. .

Our garden is exploding with life and glorious green goodness right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out this vibrant spinach - just gorgeous 💕💕
My hubby is so clever. Gotta love his work 😊
A quick & easy dinner tonight. Grilled garlic-lime mullet, homegrown roasted baby sweet potatoes and homegrown freshly picked, sauteed spinach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lots of healthy fats from the fish skin, a fantastic load of fresh nutrients from the homegrown sweet potato, and masses of micronutrients from the fresh spinach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sweet Potato is known for its massive Vitamin A content, alongside Vitamin B6, calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C and Iron. While some people postulate that sweet potato is far healthier on a low-carb/paleo diet, both have high nutrient value, though white potato has a slightly higher carbohydrate load - in a medium sized potato serving, white potato only has 4 grams more carbohydrates than sweet potato, and contains loads of extra nutrients.
The small, completely unprepared patch where we grew our #sweetpotatoes
(see previous post). Despite being encroached upon by other plants, it still provided a couple kilos of #tubers
The patch was shallow, didn't provide enough overturned/loose soil to grow in, and wasn't watered enough, yet they flourished! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As an added bonus, the baby leaves are edible - great in salads, or lightly steamed! Mostly though, the chickens feasted on the leaves 🤣 (scroll right to see the girls picking the vines clean) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just goes to show that you don't need a massive amount of space to grow your own! 😉
