What’s missing from your diet?

Whenever you make a salad, (and hopefully that’s everyday) try using a variety of different coloured vegetables, as they not only look great together, but also contain different phytochemicals, which helps protect our cells from damage and disease.

As you can see from this picture, I made a salad consisting of:

Cucumber – The natural diuretic effect of cucumbers helps flush and cleanse the kidneys and bladder.

Spinach – The high fibre and cleansing effect of spinach, aids the digestive system by keeping things moving.

Red Peppers – Are high in Vitamin C and antioxidants, which helps to reduce the risk of infections.

Avocados – The healthy monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats that they contain, promote a heathy heart.

Avocado oil – Rich and smooth, tastes great and has many health benefits.

Cherry Tomatoes – Are high in Lycopene, an antioxidant, which helps reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and sunburn.

Feta Cheese – Is lower in fat than most other cheeses and contains beneficial bacteria.

What kind of salad do you enjoy?

Bovine Colostrum Repaired My Gut

I chose to take ‘Immune-Tree Colostrum 6‘ when in 2014 I had taken some strong antibiotics for what seemed to be a bladder infection, but turned out to be interstitial cystitis.

Soon after taking the antibiotics my health quickly deteriorated. My good gut bacteria (specifically lactobacillus) was completely wiped out, leaving me with intestinal thrush, which then led to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, rapid weight loss, and panic attacks.

Desperately praying, studying my Bible, and searching online for some kind of help, I came across Bovine Colostrum. I took it for about a year, but to my surprise, within only 3 to 4 weeks my IBS had stopped, making everything else that was wrong with me much easier to cope with.

So, if any of you are suffering with any type of gastrointestinal problem, such as Ulcerative colitis, Coeliac disease, IBS, etc., please consider taking Bovine Colostrum, as it’s known for repairing the gut lining and strengthening the immune system.

Breakfast – red grapes and natural yoghurt

I don’t know about you, but sometimes mornings can be hectic in my household. With two girls often squabbling over who’s going to use the bathroom first, breakfast needs to be quick and simple.

So as long as I have plenty of fruit and natural yogurt in my fridge, I can breathe a sigh of relief. As this breakfast is delicious and only takes a few minutes to prepare.

What you will need: This serves 1

  • A handful of sliced red grapes
  • 3 Table spoons of organic natural yoghurt
  • 2 Table spoons of nutty granola
  • 1 Teaspoon of honey

Place yoghurt, grapes and granola into a bowl and then drizzle over the honey and enjoy!

Red grapes are incredibly good for you and along with a healthy diet can help prevent many health problems such as macular degeneration, reduces hypertention, prevents colon and prostate cancer and many more chronic diseases.

The Bible says in Numbers 23-24:

“And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.”

The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.”

So go ahead, next time you’re out food shopping grab some grapes! 🍇

Moringa Oleifera

My health problems in the past have led me to become a nutritional researcher, always on the look out for natural, God-given foods, which help protect and nourish our bodies, keeping us from sickness and disease.

So when I came across Moringa Oleifera, which is also known as “The Miracle Tree”, I was truly blessed!

This gift from God is native to northern India, and also grows well in tropical countries, but with a little care and attention it can also be grown over here in the UK.

Every part of this precious tree is used, and absolutely nothing is wasted. The bark, leaf, and seeds are highly nutritious, and can be used in soups, stews, smoothies, juices, and whatever else you can think of.

Moringa is a great food supplement to take as it contains over 90 nutrients, and works in the body as an adaptogen. Being highly alkaline, it helps rid the body from chronic inflammation, and helps to heal all manner of diseases, such as; diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, infections, Interstitial cyctitis, digestive problems, and many, many others.

I couldn’t wait to try it for myself, so I went down to my favourite health food shop, and bought a small pot of “Aduna Moringa Green Superleaf Powder”, which contains the vitamins A, E and K and also Calcium, Iron and Protein.

I take it as a tea, just under a quarter of a tea spoon in a mug of hot boiled water. It tastes very much like drinking spinach water. But once my taste buds got used to it, I began to find it very calming and refreshing.

Just remember, you DON’T, have to live in pain, there is always a way to improve your health and wellbeing, so why not try this for yourself.

Here are two scripture verses to think about:

And God said, let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth; and it was so.

Genesis 1:11

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse;

Romans 1:20.
