I used to be a spinach fan but got turned on to kale. Now, I cannot stop eating it. I love it in smoothies, in salads, as kale chips, and in soups.

Sandy Williams Spencer's insight:

I have to say, I tried the baked Kale chips. As a crunchy replacement for regular chips but they just didn't work for me. Didn't care for them much.

What Is Ayurveda?

 

Ayurveda, which roughly translates to “The Science of Life,” is an ancient holistic system of natural healing and medicine that goes back thousands of years. It is based on preventative medicine and acknowledges that your senses and your mind greatly influence your physiology.  However, Ayurveda is not just a medicinal system. It also teaches how human beings are an integral part of nature. It emphasizes that you should live in harmony with nature, just as animals and plants do.

Prebiotics & Probiotics: What Foods Have Them & Why You Need More in Your Diet

Prebiotics & Probiotics: What Foods Have Them & Why You Need More in Your Diet | Shrewd Foods | Scoop.it

"Just what are probiotics and why are they so good for you? Probiotics are "viable microorganisms" that can confer lots and lots of health benefits if they reach your intestine while they're alive. You may have heard them described as "friendly bacteria." These bacteria aren't just friendly, they're flat-out adorable.. They're currently being touted as a miracle cure for a whole host of ailments, whether you're dealing with acne, depression, diarrhea, or even cancer. Even if you're not dealing with any of those ailments, you want to make sure your GI tract is flourishing, and pre probiotics are necessary to maintaining your digestion—which is, in turn, key to your general health (not to mention pooping)."
