The health benefits of Olives

Standard

(Bretagne France, 201o)

Ever wonderdered what those olives you had sitting in that jar in your fridge really brought ya?

Well, resently, I discovered olive contain over 25% of your daily intake of Iron for a cup. Vegeterians have a higher chance of being anemic (not enough Iron) and eating more olives may be a nice way to increase Iron intake instead of supliment pills.

Olives are also high in Vitamin E, and have Anti-inflammatory properties.

So, next time you make yourself a sandwich, add a couple olives!

Leftover-Fruit tarts

Standard

These lovely mini fruit tarts were “snapped” at La duree, the famous pastry place in Paris.

Mini fruit tarts don’t have to be this fancy, with this recipe, you don’t have to even buy tons of fruit!

Cook your mini pie crusts as instructed on the box (you can find these in the frozen aisle), then add a little homemade vanilla custard, and garnish with any fruits in your fruit bowl. a little sugary water makes the tarts nice and shinny!

Homemade Throat Coat Tea

Standard

Here’s a simple recipe for a sore throat that will not only help soothe it, but also clear it.. as well as save you lots of cash on expensive “throat coat” brands.

Dissolve¬†one Ginger Peoples “Ginger Chew” in a cup of peppermint tea, and add a teaspoon of honey. While the honey coats the throat, the ginger will work at¬†purifying¬†the throat.

Ginger chews can be found at health stores in the candy aisle as well as world markets, and some supermarkets.
