Cell To Soul: A Saratoga Nutrition Blog

Recently in Medicinal Foods Category

     As we continue in this great time of year for farmers markets, vegetable gardens, there are still many delicious foods that we associate with the sunny days of summer: sweet blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries; succulent plums, apricots, peaches, and nectarines; deep red Bing or bright yellow Rainier cherries; flavorful red and black grapes, velvety mangoes and kiwi; and juicy watermelons. And there's so much more: sweet yellow or red onions, pungent garlic, dark leafy greens and lettuces, red tomatoes, green zucchini squash, and bright yellow crookneck squash.

    Like many of my clients at the end of a work-day, last night I was too tired to cook, but wanted something nourishing for dinner.  I prepared a Indian Dinner in about 20 minutes that was GREAT and very satisfying!



It's a great time of year to "develop a better relationship with Food".  To seek fresh, local and sustainable foods such as produce and meats at the farmers markets, your local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm or local natural foods store.  If you have not made the change to local or regional foods, make a goal to shop at one of these venues in the next 7 days and change your life forever.  You will feel better, have more energy and start to create the foundation to vital health.

This article provides some wonderful information and great recommendations from the Tai Sophia Institute.
