We find this little friend extremely amusing. It is believed that in ancient times what was thought to be an apple was actually a quince. The fruit was more available and known than the juicy red fruit. Tempting and delicious looking but nearly poisonous taste when bit into...Quince fruit is a very rich in different phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, high in fibre and low in sugar. Specifically interest of research has been on the different polyphenol compounds of quince, which it is very high in. Polyphenols have been shown to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic and immune boosting effects. These compounds give the fruit an astringent, bitter and dry taste when eaten raw. . . Tannins, a group of secondary fruit metabolites have an ability to bind with proteins, starting from the mouth all the way through the digestive tract. Due to the action the tannic compounds, they are beneficial for the function of our gut binding to excess proteins on the endothelial wall...Polyphenols are mostly present in the peel and outer layer of the fruit right under the peel and the most benefits are gained when those parts are eaten. Thus, it is important to consume organically grown quince. The fruit is often cooked for the culinary experience, this however can destroy some of the beneficial phytonutrients. Try and mix it with your favorite fruits or other sweeter tastes in smoothies or if you're brave enough eat it as it is. ..Thank you for supporting @originofhealth and helping to make the world a better place through health and Quince! ..........#OriginOfHealth #cydoniaoblonga #quincefruit #organicfoods #superfoodies #polyphenols #healthyfoods #antioxidants #antiinflammatory #immunesystembooster #health #healthy #instahealth #healthychoices #active #strong #cleanliving #cleaneating #eatclean #superfoods #holisticnutrition #nourishme #letfoodbethymedicine #nutrition #nutrients #healthygut #healthydigestion #healthbody #train #training

Resistance is often a sign that something is happening, or wants to happen. If you’ve hit a wall of resistance, know that this is not the time to quit. This is a powerful moment that is asking you to Breathe, relax, and remain centered; the other side is right there.💫...#essenceoftrueself #vitality #health #healing #meditation #kundalini #yogamama #chakrahealing #ayurveda #holistichealth #holisticnutrition #holisticoraclereader #oraclereader #naturalbeauty #selfcare #loveandlight #healer #mindbodyspirit #mindbodysoul #beautifullife #wellbeing #yoga #yogadaily #yogateacher #themoondeck #moondecking

It’s a simple question. •••It also has a simple answer. Your answer will show you how determined you are to achieve your goals. •••No matter what your goal or journey is; weight loss, self-care, happiness or anything else in this world, you have to start somewhere. We all do. It all starts with taking that first step, and then the next one, and the next one, and then you just keep moving forward. •••It’s scary, I know. I’ve been there. What happens if you fail? How will others judge you? It’s not easy taking that first step. But then you should realise, if you make a mistake, you’ll get a second chance to fix it and keep moving forward. Or if others judge you for making positive changes in your life, then you should probably reconsider who you have close to you and who you let inside your head. •••There’s no perfect opportunity to do or start anything. Create your own opportunities and start now. •••Coach Asiti 🕊

Well hello... tonight we ate this magnificent meal 🥘 and I just had to come tell you about it!! Haven’t felt I had much coming out of my kitchen worth sharing lately but this was pretty special.👩‍🍳 I was poking around on the @mycapsulekitchen website (it’s beautiful, go take a look) and came across a recipe for slow cooked beef ribs that looked divine. This recipe caught my eye because I’ve had some @colinandsallysorganic organic beef ribs sitting in my freezer for some time now, waiting for that spark of inspiration (by which I mean, I’ve never cooked with them before and had no idea what to do with them!!)🍝 So, today I cooked those lovingly pastured beef ribs long and slow, and served them with some beautifully silky papardelle, and it was spectacular! Almost makes me want to use recipes more often 🙈😬What amazing things have you whipped up lately?#simplefood #loveyourfarmer #yum

Most mornings I crave a veggie filled smoothie or an egg scramble, but today nothing sounded better than a rich yogurt bowl. In the bowl: organic goat milk’s yogurt, chia seeds, flaxmeal, cinnamon, vanilla powder, banana, frozen cherries, pecans, organic peanut butter and a homemade chocolate sesame cookie dough freezer ball. 🎈💕

Spirulina is a form of blue-green algae that springs from warm, fresh water bodies. It is often confused with chlorella, but the fundamental difference between the two is that spirulina is many thousands of years older and does not possess the hard cell wall that makes chlorella closer to being a plant than algae.Spirulina is being seriously discussed as a sustainable source of food with the potential to end world hunger – unlike most plants, it is a survivor, able to withstand extreme temperature variations and neglect and still thrive.It has been found in studies to successfully treat a wide range of ailments, including arsenic poisoning, candida overgrowth, and allergic rhinitis. It has also been seen to potentially lower stroke and cancer risks.According to a study done by the Department of Aquataculture in Taiwan, spirulina shows significant immune-boosting properties. When you think of protein, you probably imagine sitting down to a meal of organic eggs or grass-fed beef or maybe even drinking a whey protein shake.If you're a vegetarian, you may turn to plant-protein sources such as nuts, beans, lentils, and soy products. Unfortunately, soy is not the health food it claims to be. None of the above-mentioned sources of protein compare to the protein punch delivered by spirulina. Spirulina is 65-71 percent complete protein compared to beef, which is only 22 percent, and lentils, which is only 26 percent.11In addition to being protein-rich, spirulina is an excellent source of vital amino acids and minerals easily assimilated by your body. You would need to consume only two tablespoons of spirulina as a protein substitute for a meal.Source: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/07/01/spirulina-the-amazing-super-food-youve-never-heard-of.aspx

// n o u r i s h e d .can you say you feel nourished from the food that you eat?? key word being FEEL. not what the packet says or what a blog or fitness guru said the new super food contained..... .notice how you feel after you've eaten. do you end up in a food coma after lunch or dinner, do you feel bloated or gasy or get acid reflux...?? 3pm slump? the body gives us symptoms (and signs) when our digestive system is compromised or when the food we are eating isn't agreeing with us. like the engine light coming on in the car... it's trying to tell you something..after meals you should feel energized, nourished, and a 'clean' and 'content' sort of feeling. .in chinese medicine we view food through its energetic nature, temperature, flavour and how it is paired with other foods - not just its 'material' aspect which describes its nutrient content. .yes it is important that we put high quality food in, and in my view, food that has endured no stress or minimal interference, but it's also important HOW our system digests it..I'm excited to start sharing more of these sorts of concepts from a combination of my studies, personal experiences and passions of the ancient wisdom of yoga and chinese medicine for modern wellness..here's to feeling nourished 🙌🏻🌱..#nourishedlife #nourished #thenourishedlife #goodlife #healthyfood #health #holistichealth #holistic #holisticnutrition #selflove #loveyourself #foodforhealing #healingfoods #chinesemedicine #tcm #chineseherbs #bodyandsoul #goodgut #happytummy #digestion #vegan #veganfood #vegansofig #plantbased #plantbasedliving #green #veganfeta
