Food of the Week: Cauliflower

17 Apr

Cauliflower is rich in vitamins K, C, B6, folate, magnesium, omega 3 and fiber. It also contains sulforaphane, a substance that has been found to reduce the risk for cancer and heart disease. Cauliflower aids in the production of antibodies and hemoglobin and it’s protective against allergies and asthma.

You can substitute mashed potatoes for mashed cauliflower. Simply cook the cauliflower and add a little olive oil and sea salt. This is a delicious and healthier alternative.

Food of the Week: Apple

10 Apr

The old saying “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away” is completely true!

Apples are rich in antioxidants, which are protective against several cancers. They are also rich in fiber, vitamins B3, C, E, K, biotin, folate, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and manganese.

Apples are diuretic and detoxifying. They help lower cholesterol levels, they lower the risk for developing asthma and some studies claim they can lower the risk for diabetes as well.

I love to add an apple to my vegetable juice and if you want to eat to whole fruit never peel it. The peel has been found to have lot’s of antioxidants.
