DIY Refrigerator Pickles With Your Favorite Vegetable Not too long ago, I had a long-time dream come true: I taught my first full-on cooking class. We played around with my refrigerator pickle recipe and had such a blast! I’ve done pickling demonstrations before at farmers markets, cafes, and even at my kid’s school, but this was my first time doing a hands-on pickling class. It was everything that I dreamed it would be. We talked about food and flavors and how to adjust the spice in a recipe that calls for jalapenos.

How WHOLE Turmeric Heals The Damaged Brain - Page 2 The research clearly indicates that turmeric is a great brain supportive plant. For a more layperson oriented review, read the following articles: One of the most frequent questions we field is 'what is the best type of turmeric or curcumin to use'? Obviously, given the aforementioned research, the whole plant is going to carry a wider range of therapeutic compounds than curcumin alone. And yet, most have been heavily enculturated to focus entirely on the 'how much' question, opting to identify the molecular weight (i.e. how many milligrams in a serving) of a particular compound as more important than the qualitative dimensions (e.g. is it organic? It is delivered within its natural context as food or a whole plant?)

Make Your Own All-Natural Sleep Aid “Nothing cures insomnia likethe realization that it’s time to get up.”~Author Unknown I am fairly confident that most of us, at some time in our lives, have experienced trouble sleeping. For some of us sleeplessness can come during times of transition…like when we move into a new home or travel. This type of disturbance in our sleep pattern will usually only last for a couple of nights. How WHOLE Turmeric Heals The Damaged Brain Long considered impossible to accomplish, new research reveals how a simple spice might contribute to the regeneration of the damaged brain. Turmeric is hands down one of the, if not the, most versatile healing spice in the world with over 600 experimentally confirmed health benefits, and an ancient history filled with deep reverence for its seemingly compassionate power to alleviate human suffering. But, most of the focus over the past decade has been centered on only one of its many hundreds of phytocompounds: namely, the primary polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin which gives the spice its richly golden hue.

Gingery Miso Peanut Sauce Makes Everything Taste GOOD I like to make a big batch of this nutty, sweet, gingery sauce to use in lots of ways throughout the week – as the dressing for a rice bowl, as a sauce for baked tofu, as a dip for carrot and cucumber sticks, a marinade for grilled shrimp, and more. It does require a little slicing and dicing and the use of a food processor but it’s really pretty easy, especially if you are in the habit of washing your Cuisinart in the dishwasher. A little garlic, a lot of ginger, some nice, mellow white miso (you can use any kind you like, though), a good, organic, unsalted peanut butter, some soy sauce, a little sugar, and a few other things go into the food processor. Add a little hot water and blend until it’s smooth and creamy.

They help you maintain your body’s balance of electrolytes during or after periods of heavier exercise.

Top 10 Herbs For Memory Share Many people associate memory loss with aging. But whether it’s occasional forgetfulness or loss of short-term memory, one must be aware that there are specific factors that can cause it even at a young age instead of simply attributing memory loss to a natural decline in cognitive functioning.
