Foods that heal you.

thanks to healthline.com

Doctors often recommend healthy lifestyle changes whether you’re fighting fatigue, searching for ways to boost your immune system, or recovering from an illness. The foods you eat can often significantly help prevent and manage symptoms. It is always better to get nutrients directly from food, rather than take supplements.

Read on to learn how power foods help heal the body.

1. Kelp increases your iodine intake

Iodine is essential to the thyroid, the butterfly-shaped gland in the neck. Low iodine levels can cause sluggishness, weight gain, and moodiness.

Kelp is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and — most important for low thyroid levels — iodine. But be aware that overconsumption of iodine can also create problems...

Everyone should be eating these four foods during flu and Corona season.

thanks to Christina Lorey from Channel 3000

Flu season is close, and it’s on its way to becoming the worst in decades. So far this year, 19 million people have come down with the flu and dare we say it – Corona Virus.

While there is no cure for the flu, food is one of the best ways to fight back.

When you’re sick, the last thing you might feel like doing is eating. While nutritionists agree it’s okay to eat a little less, they say food is what gives your body the energy and nutrients it needs to function and fight. They specifically recommend the following foods:

1. Try kiwis and Capsicum

When it comes to the anti-oxidant vitamin C, everybody hears about oranges, but kiwis are a very good source of it...

Food is Medicine

Thanks To By Denise Dador from abc7.com

A visit to the doctor’s office with symptoms of a cold or flu may get you a prescription for medicine. But doctors also say there are certain foods that you may not be aware of that are high in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that help support a healthy immune system.

Oranges and grapefruits get all the Vitamin C glory when it comes to boosting your immune system. But, there are some other foods that are more than capable of stepping up in that department.


One cup of strawberries or raw broccoli gives you nearly 100% of your daily Vitamin C intake. And, a medium-sized red bell pepper contains nearly double the daily value.

“I’m a medical doctor and I prescribe medicine, but I always like to take the natural approach whenever possibl...

Ten Australian bush foods coming to your plate soon

Isn’t it funny that it has taken foreign chefs embracing Australia’s native ingredients to bring greater awareness about the power they hold?

In Adelaide, it’s Scottish chef Jock Zonfrillo championing the cause, with his Orana Foundation collaborating with the University of Adelaide and the Royal Botanic Gardens to log each of the country’s native ingredients.

In Melbourne, it’s New Zealand’s Ben Shewry who has embraced Australian edibles at his Ripponlea restaurant Attica.

How much should you eat?

Thanks to Amanda Salis and University of Sydney – The conversation.

Dietary guidelines broadly recommend a daily intake of 10,000 kilojoules (2,400 calories) for men and 8,000 kilojoules (1,900 calories) for women. Is that for everyone?

Daily kilojoule requirements are based on many variables, and no two people are the same across all of these parameters. It makes sense then that if we all followed the same prescriptions for kilojoule intake, some of us would gain weight while others might lose some. That’s because any excess or deficit between the number of kilojoules you consume and the number your body uses results in weight gain or loss.

There are two options: the mathematical approach, which requires kilojoule counting, and the instinctive approach, which involves “...

19 Desserts You Won’t Believe Are Actually Healthy

When health is a top concern — whether it is because you’re dieting or simply living a healthy lifestyle — desserts can seem off-limits. But they don’t have to be! There are several ways to satisfy a sweet tooth without jeopardizing your health goals.

It’s important to note that when looking for a healthy dessert, what one person considers “healthy,” another wouldn’t. For instance, someone who avoids gluten may not be too concerned about sugar content, and someone watching their carbs might still be pro-dairy. Each dessert should be weighed against what your objectives and methods are. Still, there’s something on this list for everyone!

How many nuts do you need to eat each day?

What most of us refer to as ‘nuts’ actually aren’t nuts at all.

It’s no secret that the peanut has been nothing more than an imposter, a legume seizing our throats and making us itchy since who knows when.

But almonds, cashews, coconuts, pecans, pistachios, macadamias and walnuts aren’t nuts either — they’re drupe seeds. Who knew?!

Whatever they are, research clearly shows they’re really good for us, with health experts saying we could probably be eating more nuts for our health. In fact, one study found people who ate a handful of nuts a day were likely to live longer than those who didn’t eat nuts.
