10 Cool Season Plants You Can Grow Today! Ready Nutrition

Whos itching to get back in the garden and start growing some yummy veggies? For those who are in the I cant wait group (Im definitely in this group), there are a few vegetable varieties that you can grow now and tend to do well in colder conditions. In fact, sometimes the cold weather makes certain vegetables taste better! My grandfather always planted his turnip greens in the fall so they would get some frost on them. He said they always tasted better that way.

That made me ask why this was? I found out that when colder temperatures hit vegetables like parsnips, celery, carrots and, kale it causes a biological reaction and the vegetables begin producing sugars, thus making them sweeter. Pretty neat, huh? That said, you want to plant cool-season crops early enough in the fall or spring so they can complete their full cycle up to harvest before the temperatures get too disagreeable. As well, make sure you that you plant early enough in fall to allow plants to reach maturity before hard frosts hit or the daytime temperature drops too low. In spring, youll need to take the opposite approach, waiting to plant until the air and soil temperatures are warm enough for the plants to thrive.

Growing in the cooler temperatures also have fewer insect infestations that bother growing plants.

10 Cool Season Plants You Can Grow Today

Even though the days are still cool, there are some seeds you can start today.

  1. Beets  The trick to growing beets is to not plant them deeply. 1/2 inch to 1 inch deep is sufficient! Go with 1 inch deep, as the temperature warms, because it will be cooler underground. When the beet matures, you want to see a portion of the root above ground. You can use the greens in salads or stir-fry, or give them your livestock as a treat.
  2. Broccoli  In the Fall or Spring, plant broccoli in full sun. They love the sunshine! Too much shade causes legginess and slow maturation. When the plant matures, it will bear five to six-inch heads but new side shoots will produce so you can harvest regularly.
  3. Bunching Onion  These little guys will be one of the first seeds to germinate and want to be grown in groups of 6 or more. Start seeds 6 weeks before your last frost date and plant in successions for a continuous harvest.
  4. Cabbage  Who doesnt like fresh cole slaw or sauteed cabbage in their stir fry? The great thing about cabbage is it can be stored for up to a month in the...

Violent Behavior Linked to Nutritional Deficiencies The Weston A. Price Foundation

WASHINGTON, DC, February 16, 2018: Deficiencies of vitamins A, D, K, B1, B3, B6, B12 and folate, and of minerals iodine, potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc, chromium and manganese can all contribute to mental instability and violent behavior, according to the Sylvia Onusic, PhD, CNS, LDN of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

In an article published in the Wise Traditions, the Foundations quarterly journal, Dr. Onusic enumerates the nutritional factors that have led to the increase in violent behavior in America, especially among teenagers, such as the February 14 shooting at a south Florida high school that left seventeen dead and many wounded.

We can blame violence on the media and on the breakdown of the home, says Onusic, but the fact is that a large number of Americans, living mostly on devitalized processed food, are suffering from malnutrition. In many cases, this means their brains are starving.

In fact, doctors are seeing a return of nutritional deficiency diseases such as scurvy, which were declared eradicated long ago by public health officials. Many of these conditions cause brain injuries as well.

Symptoms of pellagra, for example, include anxiety, hyperactivity, depression, fatigue, headache, insomnia and hallucinations. Pellegra is a disease caused by deficiency of vitamin B3. Zinc deficiency is linked with angry, aggressive, and hostile behaviors that result in violence. The best dietary sources of zinc are red meat and shellfish.

Leaky gut and gluten sensitivities may exacerbate nutrient deficiencies. Gluten intolerance is strongly linked with schizophrenia.

Making things worse are excitotoxins so prevalent in the food supply, such as MSG and aspartame, says Onusic. People who live on processed food and who drink diet sodas are exposed to these mind-altering chemicals at very high levels. In an effort to curb child obesity, the dairy industry recently petitioned FDA to include aspartame and other artificial sweeteners in dairy beverages featured in school lunches, without appropriate labeling. Recent research has established the fact that aspartame actually leads to weight gain because of its effect on insulin.

Other ingredients in the food supply linked to violent behavior include sugar, artificial colors and flavorings, caffeine, alcohol and soy foods. The toxic environmental burden includes mercury, arsenic, lead, fire retardants, pesticides, heavy metals and Teflon. Adding psychiatric drugs to this mix puts everyone at risk.

The only solution to the mounting levels of violence is a return to real, nutrient-dense food, says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. We must create a culture in which eating processed food is seen as uncool, and in which home cooking is embraced as a life-enhancing skill.

The Weston A. Price Foundation has pointed out the poor nutritional quality of school lunches and the flaws in the USDA di...

One Breath Mental Health Photography Project, by Danielle Langham COMFORT BITES BLOG

A look at a new project that aims to portray the emotions of mental health - through photography.  I've been quite open with you all about how I've experienced general anxiety and depression in the past. I began treatment for PTSD towards the end of last year, which helped me a lot, and vastly reduced my symptoms.  What I'm trying to say is that I know what it feels like to be stuck in that cycle of overthinking, doubting yourself and feeling generally trapped somewhere you don't want to be. I get it.  And when I saw the photographs taken by Danielle Langham for her project One Breath, I was blown away.  Danielle Langham, One Breath Exhibition Danielle told...

Biological Warfare: Is Smallpox a Threat? Recent Government Activity Suggests It Is Ready Nutrition

ReadyNutrition Readers, we have done several articles on biological weapons, as well as specific diseases that one might encounter with an attack by a so-called rogue state.  But we also know the value of a good false flag, that is an operation by a government and made to appear to be something different.  The burning of the Reichstag prior to World War II and blaming it on Marius Van Der Lubbe is one example.

In this vein, recently a vaccine for Smallpox has come to the forefront of news reports. An article from Outbreak News Today is reporting on an investigational smallpox vaccine that has successfully passed one of its clinical trial phases.  As a matter of fact, it is so successful that USAMRIID (the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases) has been doing the testingand is developing this as an alternative to the current U.S. smallpox vaccine.

If approved, this vaccine will have a direct impact on improving force health protection for U.S. Soldiers and other service members who are required to be immunized against smallpox, said COL Gary Wheeler, commander of USAMRIID.

According to Paul Chaplin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bavarian Nordic, IMVAMUNE has been given to more than 7,800 subjects in 21 clinical studies, including this trial and one other Phase 3 study. He said the company plans to file a Biological License Application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration later this year.

This program has only been possible through the consistent and strong support of numerous U.S. Government agencies and demonstrates what can be achieved through a successful public-private partnership to protect the public from the deliberate release of the smallpox virus, Chaplin added.

If the disease was eradicated more than 40 years ago, then why all the concern now?

Smallpox does not exist in its natural state outside of laboratories.  It is, however, kept as a...

Steak Stir-Fry The Weston A. Price Foundation

Most of us are aware that bone broth soup is really good for us. Its delicious warmed up and served as is, but its even better when used in recipes. This particular recipe uses bone broth as the sauce. I often make it for company and they always say, This sauce is really good, right before they get up and go for seconds.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound grass-fed sirloin steak 
  • 2 cloves fresh squeezed garlic, rested for 10 minutes
  • 2 medium beets 
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 medium onion
  • cup frozen or fresh corn
  • cup frozen or fresh broccoli
  • cup frozen or fresh beans
  • 2 cups bone broth
  • 2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • optional: 6-8 mushrooms cut into pieces and cooked in cup butter

For the salad dressing marinade:

  • cup extra virgin olive oil

  3. 90 minutes before serving, heat up the bone broth, cut the beets and carrots into bite-sized pieces and simmer in a stock pot. Check the water level as it cooks as sometimes more water needs to be added.

When You Eat Paleo... But Your Kids Don't COMFORT BITES BLOG

I know. I've wondered many times if I'm a bad parent.  Don't.  Here it comes *deep breath*. Although I eat paleo, to try and ease my psoriasis and IBS, my kids don't.  Don't get me wrong, I try.  Photo by Danielle MacInnes on Unsplash 90% of the time, they eat a pretty much nutrient dense, gluten free diet. They eat the same evening meal as me - basically meat, fish and veg, which is good. They might fancy a gluten-free Spaghetti Carbonara, in which case I make it for them. They have gluten free toast, oats and eat lots of vegetables. Snacks in the house are gluten free and I try to keep them low in sugar. But then, occasionally, they'll go round...

Egg Drop Soup Closet Cooking

Egg Drop Soup
Another classic dish at Chinese restaurants is egg drop soup! This is a super simple soup where a egg is poured into simmering chicken broth in a thin stream the cooks into smooth ribbons that gives the soup an amazing creamy texture. I like to use a homemade chicken broth for this to maximize flavour but store bought will also do! The chicken broth is jazzed up by simmering it with green onions, ginger and white peppercorns along with a dried shiitake mushrooms and a few slices of bacon. The green onions, ginger and white peppercorns give the chicken broth a nice Asian flare and the dried shiitake mushrooms and bacon add layers of umami flavour and a hint of smokiness and meatiness! Once the broth is ready cornstarch is added to thicken a bit before the eggs slowly are added in a thin stream that allows them to cook into thin ribbons in the soup. The egg drop soup is finished off with toasted sesame oil, for its magical aroma, along with a garnish of green onions and optional sliced shiitake mushrooms. The perfect way to start off your Lunar New Year celebrations!

Lets talk about chocolate. Dr. William Davis


Five great reasons to consume cocoa and chocolate

  1. The fatty acids in cocoa consists mainly of stearic acid and oleic acid. Unlike most saturated fatty acids, stearic acid does not raise blood cholesterol levels (not that we care about blood cholesterol levels, but maybe it will help keep your doctor from needlessly freaking out on you). Oleic acid is a monounsaturated fat that also does not raise cholesterol and may even reduce it.
  2. Contains flavonoids (procyanidins and epicatechins). These are part of a group of powerful antioxidants known as polyphenols. They are found in a variety of foods including dark chocolate, tea, red wine, and various fruits and vegetables.
  3. There are a variety of factors that can improve mood and a sense of pleasure by boosting serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain. Cocoa beans also contain dopamine, phenylethylamine and serotonin, compounds that are known to enhance mood and promote feelings of well-being.
  4. Regular consumption may be associated with better cognitive performance in the elderly.
  5. Contains numerous minerals including calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

the essential paris travel guide & map Local Milk Blog

the essential Paris travel guide & mapThe Ultimate Paris, France Travel Guide: All the Must See Instagram, Travel Photography, Food, Cafes, Things to do, and Shopping Spot plus Travel Tips for the First Time Visitor! #travel #paris #france

Finally the essential Paris travel guide & map are here! Two years ago Matt & I came to Paris. Fast forward to now, and weve fallen in love with the city, rented an apartment, and call Paris home 6 months out of the year. Eula took her first bite of food here, her first steps here, and celebrated her first birthday here. Its become our second home. And Ive gotten to know it so well, though its forever full of surprises. Below Ive given you my Paris travel tips for the first timer along with my favorite stays, coffee, eats, drinks, and shops. And Ive included a free map of the most Instagrammable photography spots in Paris.cause I miiiiight know a thing or two about that! The map also has my favorite eats & shops on it, and you can use it on your phone! Its the perfect companion to a trip to Paris or planning one!

When people ask me Why Paris?, all I can really say is because when I look up, it makes me happy. Because my daily errands are more beautiful. Because I can buy a real poisses. Because when Im surrounded by iron street lamps and Haussmannian rooftops and toy chimneys, I am, it seems, a little lighter. And I am not, by nature, light. Im, if left to my own devices, an anxious person. And while I subscribe to the old adage, Its not where you are, its who you are, I do find where I am can be the icing on the cake provided Im doing well.

Given the wrong mind set, I can be miserable in Paris or paradise. We all could. But given that I am, on the whole these days, content & ever striving towards a reasonable assessment of the fear & sense of urgency that plague me regardless of circumstance, I find myself generally happy here in our fourth floor walk up come heat wave or snow, both of which weve been here for. I prefer the snow.

Paris, I think, is a mirror. If youre young and wild, shell be young and wild. If youre old and stodgy, she can meet you there as well. If youre like me and decidedly (one hopes) neither, theres that too. I spend most of my time in the admittedly bourgie neighborhood of the Marais where we live or working at a co-working space nearby. I rarely adventure to the left bank, though Ive nothing against it. In the spring I look forward to taking Eula to Luxembourg Gardens to rent a toy sailboat to float on the Grand B...
