Going Back To Our Roots

Root drink

 

Hello,

How time flies! We are on the last quarter of the month! Just as we are counting how much time have we got to prepare for the Christmas Holidays, we realized that we are down to 3 weeks this October!

What else? Bad weather-sunshine in the morning and heavy rain int he afternoon, typhoon and flooding! Not to mention traffic, pollution, getting stranded plus fatigue from work that can take its toll physically and threaten our immunity and make us vulnerable to cold and flu.

Going back to our roots
We contracted cold ourselves but since we’ve loaded enough of this powerful hot root drink made of fresh organic ginger, turmeric, cinnamon bark, and a dollop of raw wild honey, the cold couldn’t “take root” on our body and was gone in no time at all.

Another drink that helps strengthen immunity and ward off infection is probiotic drink, a fermented milk from pasture raised or grass fed cow. A cup a day (about 325 ml) in the morning on empty stomach keeps cold at bay.

Harvest Offerings
Please check out our harvest offerings for this week, 7th – 15th October which you can pre-order starting today until the 14th October, cut off is 12nn.

Egg breakfast helps reduce ghrelin, a hormone that contributes to hunger, it also lowers blood sugar and insulin levels.

Did you know that 2 raw egg yolks contain nearly twice as many antioxidant properties as an apple?

Not only that eggs contain high quality proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals, egg yolks are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, a class of carotenoids that offer powerful prevention against age-related macular degeneration; the most common cause of blindness.

Why brown rice is excellent for your body?

Rice is whole grain that is powerhouse of selenium, manganese, naturally occurring oils, and promotes weight loss. It  is also great antioxidant; contains very high in fibre, and is a slow-release sugar. On the other hand, white rice offers risk in contracting diabetes as it increases blood sugar rapidly. It also has very low dietary fibre but high carbohydrates and calories. Medical experts at the Harvard School of Public Health recently found that eating five servings per week of white rice increased the risk of diabetes. 

There is a global call for brown rice because development aid agencies saw the nutritional deficiency of white rice consumption in poorer or developing countries which creates further risks and challenges in economic development if its population is at risk of diabetes.
