Going Organic

This past summer, I decided that 2019 would be a year of not eating processed food.  I decided to get a bread maker and practice over this half a year.

So far, it has gone quite well.  All meat comes from either the farmers market or butchers (it is sooo yummy), fruit and veg comes in a weekly organic box, and bits and bobs (olive oil, soy sauce etc.) I’m getting from the local health food shop.

I have not tried making bread yet.

Though the initial outlay for quality meat and vegetables is quite high, when you don’t eat out at all, it is actually cheaper – and you get to eat better quality food.

I am doing it slowly, and not replacing things until they’re finished – because I can’t afford it – but I’m excited.  It doesn’t feel like a chore at all.  Just like I’m having treats all the time.  Man, you should try these organic pears!

Kiwi Fruit Benefits

Kiwi fruits are wonderful.  They taste delicious – on their own, in smoothies, on porridge.

But did you also know they are very good for you?

For example, one kiwi fruit contains more vitamin C than an orange.  They also contain vitamin K, vitamin E, folate and potassium.

They are rich with antioxidants too which means they’re great at keeping skin health optimal and keeping colds at bay.

Lastly but not leastly, they are brilliant to eat, and eat plentiful amounts of, when you have constipation.  The fibre in them gets everything working normally again.

Morning Smoothies

I love a morning smoothie everyday.  It means I get all my fresh fruits and vegetables before I’ve even had a meal, and it makes my skin really nice.

They are full of antioxidants.

I also add ground flaxseeds, chia seeds, baobab powder, maca powder and marine collagen.

One tall glass sets me up for the day.
