Mushrooms, Asparagus, Cabbage, and Onions Oh My!!

All fruits and veggies are vitally important to our health and wellness.  Any time you can get your hands on a fruit or a vegetable, even if it is not organic, please eat it!!  While different produce items contain various types of essential vitamins, minerals, and cell building blocks, our ‘title’ veggies, i.e. Mushrooms, Asparagus, Cabbage, and Onions, contain high amount of SULFUR, which our bodies need in order to thrive.

Why do we need Sulfur??  Isn’t Sulfur that smelly gas we experimented with in elementary school science class??  In some forms, yes; but more importantly Sulfur is a building block for our brains and our mitochondria, and our liver and kidneys need Sulfur to remove toxins from our body and bloodstream.  Plus, when you chop up some mushrooms, cabbage and onions and saute with a little extra virgin olive oil you will have a fantastic side dish to a plump, fresh piece of wild caught fish.  MMMMmmmm….

Do not be afraid of Sulfur!  It is one of the best nutrients we can ingest, and you will save thousands of dollars on future medical care costs by eating healthy food now.

This is amazing – the city of Seattle is planning to plant and sustain an urban food forest!  Trees, plants, and bushes will yield fruit, vegetables, nuts, and herbs for public consumption.  Listed among the items to be available are apples, pears, blueberries, raspberries, guavas, pineapples, chestnuts, walnuts, herbs and more.

One of the best things about this is that people can get nutrition that was previously unavailable to them due to cost – anyone can take what they need.  Yes problems could arise, but better to deal with some potential issues then to never test out innovative ideas.

Good luck Seattle!


Hello Healthy (TASTY) Dinner Round 2…

The recipe in the last post was found courtesy of the Bob’s Red Mill website.  If you are not familiar with the comprehensive line of healthy baking and cooking items produced by this fantastic LOCAL Oregon company you are mission out!

Check out Bob’s Red Mill and get your healthy on.

By the way, healthy food tastes really good when done right.  There are ingredients such as nuts, olive oil, avocado, and more that are chock full of unsaturated, extremely beneficial fats that lend a rich flavor to all sorts of meals.  While vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds do make up the bulk of a natural and nutrient-rich eating plan, certain oils are a great addition to the menu.  Of course it is ok, even recommended, to splurge from time to time.  No one can be  good 100% of the time, so let yourself enjoy treats and mainly stick to the good stuff.

Have a great dinner!
