Post image for 4 Memory-Boosting Foods

It’s incredible to learn what certain foods can do to our bodies. Food is how we fuel ourselves, and I think it’s really important to view food in that way – as an energy source. Having this perspective on food causes us to make the effort to supply our bodies with the best ingredients, making us feel excellent – both physically and mentally. I was recently researching methods for improving memory, and realized that the food we eat plays a big role in this. Read on to discover 4 foods that will help improve your memory – plus some ideas on how to incorporate each one into your diet! Read more »

This sounds yummy! I love to make green smoothies because you can use the greens to balance out the sugars in your smoothie. I've really been liking this one I posted a video of on my youtube channel. It's honestly soo yummy and easy to make!

Is Martial Arts Practical -Apr 10, 2014, 7:05PM
Also known as close combat or close-in combat, hand to hand (H2H) combat is the most ancient form of fighting known to man. a pioneer in pay-per-view television which had produced such off-beat events as a mixed-gender tennis match between Jimmy Connors and Martina Navratilova. The fighting was all about close combat and guerilla warfare.

Hi! I used amaranth flour instead of almond and didn't like the flavour at all. Also, I used tapioca starch and the result was too sticky. I'll try to do it again soon with the right flour and maybe corn starch instead of tapioca. Thanks! :)

Question on the apple cobbler in a jar. Can this be done in a slightly larger jar like you said you used and leave a little "air" room at the top and fitted with a lid for saving til later? How long will this stay fresh if sealed and stored? I would love to put these for sale in my bakery, if I could figure out the shelf life on them. Thank you for sharing.

Now that fall is on its way, it’s time to start thinking about all of those indoor activities that we love so much – especially cooking. This year we’re taking cooking up a notch by replacing our typical olive oil with a whole bunch of herb-infused olive oils. Read more »

I love infused olive with red pepper, rosemary and garlic. Your way of infuseing olive oil looks very intresting. I will surely try this once.

Sorry for the typo what I meant is that the garbanzo beans look like chick peas.
Marise -Mar 17, 2014, 11:49PM
This soup sounds and looks delicious, however, what are garbanzo beans? Are they chic peas as we know them in Australia, they plonk like it. Looking forward to making this soup. Thanks

Post image for 5 Alkalizing Foods To Eat Every Day

Life is all about balance. Ying and yang; light and dark; work and play…and our bodies are no different. The human body is constantly striving to maintain a balanced pH level in the blood in order for it to survive. Read more »

Diana -Sep 01, 2013, 8:27PM
These foods all have wonderful nutritional benefits but it has nothing to do with blood pH... which is not affected by what you eat. Your body regulates pH through a balance of carbon dioxide and bicarbonate... an imbalance in pH results from serious medical issues like respiratory depression or kidney failure. I love this blog but implying that eating "alkalinizing foods" can cure "seeming incurable illnesses" is offensive to anyone with a basic medical education. Promoting the idea that "alkalinizing foods" will cure your illnesses is as irresponsible as promoting juice cleanses to "clear toxins"... which they don't. Kale is rich in fiber and vitamins, and is a great component of a well rounded diet. It doesn't need to have magical pH properties to be healthy
Juliette Laura -Aug 31, 2013, 10:12AM
So glad to see that I am an avid eater of all of these! Especially lemon kale and cucumber! xo, Juliette Laura
