Produce Information & Tips

Kiwi

 

Kiwifruit is made up of about 85% of water, proteins, a low amount of fats, sugar, vitamin C, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, calcium, iron and fibers. The vitamin C in kiwifruit strengthens the immune system and prevents colds and flu.  Vitamin C can protect our body from the negative effects of free radicals keeping our teeth and gums healthy. One 100g kiwi contains at least 166% of the recommended daily intake of this valuable vitamin.

Vitamin C can also remove cholesterol from the body and helps to prevent heart attacks and atherosclerosis. Even pregnant women can benefit from eating kiwifruit because it contains folic acid and because vitamin C is able to relieve and prevent blood flow disorders.  It has been shown that vitamin C can protect us from cataracts, an eye disorder which occurs when the crystalline lens becomes cloudy.

The presence of minerals such as iron and magnesium turns kiwifruit into an ideal food for those wishing to fight daily stress while its high potassium content is quite useful against depression and fatigue in general.

It is good for those practicing sports as it favors a quick recovery of strengths and balance so that physical efforts can be endured longer.

Produce Information & Tips

Lemon

All bodies are slightly different, so use these in very small doses at first to test your responses.

Clarifying moisturizer : Mix a few drops of coconut water with a few drops of lemon juice. The coconut will hydrate your skin, and lemon will clear and brighten it.

Elbow and knee bleacher: If your elbows and knees appear dark, simply rub them with half of a lemon.

Blackhead treatment:  Because lemons are antibacterial, they can help treat acne. Just rub the juice on your face.

Teeth whitener: Mix baking soda and lemon juice, and apply it to your teeth with a clean Q-tip. Then, use your toothbrush to scrub your teeth and rinse.

Nail strengthener: Make a mixture of your favorite cooking oil (try olive oil) with lemon juice, and soak your nails. This is a good practice if your nails are dry and brittle, but it's also a great way to help fix nails that have yellowed.

!!Bonus Turmeric Tip!!:  In order to significantly increase (up to 20 times more) the health benefit of turmeric, add black pepper.

Recipe

Broccoli Quinoa Salad

 

Ingredients

Process:
 

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover the saucepan, and steam until broccoli is tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Puree parsley, walnuts, and olive oil together in a blender or food processor until sauce is smooth.
  4. Stir quinoa, broccoli, tomato, cucumber, and leeks together in a large bowl. Pour parsley sauce over quinoa mixture and toss to coat completely. Sprinkle blue cheese over the top and season with sea salt.
