Simplifying nutrition and using food as medicine - one bite at a time.

My goal with this blog is to set folks straight about what good nutrition really is! Starting by discarding the info we get every day from 'sponsors' that do not really have our best interests at heart, I want to inspire you to eat better AND realize it is much easier than you thought it would be!

Just about any health issues can be addressed with nutrition (and meditation), from mild to chronic to acute. We truly have the ability to heal ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually...

And you can use your daily routine as your vehicle to drive that change :)

"When food, in the minds of eaters, is no longer associated with farming and with the land, then the eaters are suffering a kind of cultural amnesia that is misleading and dangerous"

Queen of Green

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Lindsay Coulter, David Suzuki's Queen of Green.  Her blog is really informative and provides useful information for anyone trying to improve their choices and live a more sustainable lifestyle, including making better food choices.

We spoke about how to eat and get the health benefits from eating sustainable fish.  I'm providing the link if you care to read more about this fishy topic

Be well and stay tuned for more...

  1. This is great. I'm nearly vegan but still like fish/seafood... and secretly nibble on cheese ha ha ha. With a cancer diagnosis I'm stuggling with iron levels & feel a little nervous to be fully vegan. Do you have any ideas/ recipes iron rich foods? Thanks for all the info and recipes in the links. I'll be staying tuned for more :)
    Thanks!

  2. Hi Kim,
    Thanks for your comment.
    One of the most iron-rich foods (that's heme-iron the most absorbable iron) is homemade organic bone broths (ie: beef, bison, lamb, turkey) These are very restorative and nutritive in general but i'm not sure you want to venture that far from your almost Vegan lifestyle(?)
    Otherwise seaweeds are very mineral-rich, including iron (although it's non-heme iron/vegetable based).
    Also (organic) soybeans, lentils, garbanzo beans(aka: chickpeas) sesame seeds and spinach (lightly cooked) are abundant as well as unsulphured blackstrap molasses is pretty good too.
    A good website for finding out what nutrients can be found in what foods is: http://whfoods.com/

    Be well!
