Persimmon Fruit

When Are Persimmons In Seasons?

This sweet, slightly tangy fruit, which is loaded with vitamins and phytonutrients, is a winter fruit and will begin to appear in the markets in late September, but November and December are when they’re most plentiful. In some areas, availability may even stretch into January. Allow the fruit to fully ripen before consuming; otherwise, their flavor is very bitter. Once ripe, persimmons don’t keep well. They should be eaten right away or refrigerated for no more than a day or two. However, you can freeze the unripe fruit for up to six months before setting them out at room temperature to ripen.

Papaya FruitAre Papayas Irradiated and/or Genetically Modified?

Commenting on this question is tough, as websites with a definitive answer on how to determine the complete answer by examining a papaya’s label don’t seem to exist. One can, at least, determine if produce is organically grown or genetically modified. To do this, look at the label: If the price lookup (PLU) number is five digits long and begins with the number 9, then the produce is organic. If the PLU begins with an 8, then the item is genetically modified. Unfortunately, there is no reliable way (save perhaps purchasing your own Geiger counter) to determine whether a food has been previously irradiated. However, organic produce is much less likely to have been irradiated.

Organic Food Benefits

According to recent studies, organic foods are better for fighting cancer. And people eating organic food have improved immune system, better sleeping habits and are less likely to be overweight than when eating “conventional” foods. (Can you imagine the benefits of eating both raw and organic food?)

The taste of organic fruits and vegetables is often superior to any conventional produce. That’s why many top restaurants use organic produce in their menu. Today, most fruits and veggies are manipulated to look and stay good. The strawberries from your ordinary supermarket may look great on your cake but they have virtually no taste. However, the taste of fresh organic fruits is irresistible!

HOW DO I MAKE HEMP SEED MILK?

Using hemp milk in smoothies is a great, easy way to get protein, iron, and essential fatty acids in your diet. To make it, mix one cup of hemp seed and 3 cups water into a blender. Add honey or agave nectar to sweeten if you like. Strain the mixture through a nut milk bag. Refrigerate to avoid oxidation of the Omega- 3 oils. To make almond milk, use the same recipe–just substitute the hemp seeds for the same amount of almonds.

Brow Chakras

WHAT IS THE BROW CHAKRA?

Also known as the “third eye chakra,” the brow chakra is blue and is situated at the forehead, between the eyes. It is the center for self-realization, intuition and sleep. This smoothie aides the health of this chakra, as it is pure brain food. Not only do the berries provide a rich source of antioxidants, but so does the Vega™ Oil Blend, which lists pomegranate, green tea, black raspberry, and blueberry seed extracts as ingredients. Moreover, this ultra-virgin, cold pressed oil is
abundant in essential fats like Omega-3, 5, 6, and 9, which are crucial for optimum brain and nerve function. The Berry Vega® also adds a nice flavor and protein to the mixture.

What Are Brazil Nuts?

Brazil nuts come from a tree that is grown in many parts of the Amazon, not just Brazil. They are large, in comparison to other nuts, and are often included in nut mixes. Just six nuts comprise a 1 ounce serving. Brazil nuts offer many nutrients, but are dense in calories and fat.

One ounce of Brazil nuts contains 185 calories, 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates. Brazil nuts provide 2 grams of fiber per 1 ounce serving, which is 8 percent of the recommended daily allowance, or RDA, as per U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet. They provide 5 percent of the RDA for calcium and 4 percent for iron.
