FIVE FAVORITES OF THE WEEK

Kale salads. Kale is detoxifying antioxidant filled anti-inflammatory food that has zero fat, is high in iron, calcium, vitamins A,C and K. I top my salad often with dried sesame seaweed and raw sunflower seeds. What a powerful superfood plate!
Oil of oregano. Way to stay healthy this winter. I bought this liquid version and hubby has been taking three pipettes instead of three drops... No wonder his mouth was burning. I wonder how he even managed to do that. Three drops is already extremely strong even I mix it with orange juice. Oregano oil is widely known as nature’s potent germ-killer. It also has extremely high levels of free-radical-fighting antioxidants, agents that protect the body. Oregano oil may also provide support against common infectious ailments including the respiratory problems, psoriasis, eczema, Athlete’s foot and yeast infections.
Holiday party jewelry. Nuff said. Where's the party? 
Raw, organic cacao. Cacao is used in our house to make healthier mocha, cakes, smoothies, chia pudding, desserts and cookies. But what's the difference between cacao and cocoa? Cacao refers to the raw form of chocolate, including the tree and bean. Raw cacao powder is not roasted, relatively unprocessed, and contains no sugar or cocoa butter = muy bueno. Cacao is a top source of antioxidants, and it contains an abundance of magnesium and iron. Cocoa powder, in the other hand, has been roasted, ground, and sometimes mixed with a sweetener and cocoa butter = no bueno. Go for CACAO!
Pomegranates. I've been eating tons of pomegranates lately and my teeth are starting to say "that's enough!". They are very sweet, but oh so delicious. Way better than any candy. Pomegranate is said to be the most powerful anti-oxidant of all fruits, has potent anti-cancer and immune supporting effects, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, just to mention few of the benefits.
“Our bodies are our gardens—our wills are our gardeners.“ Shakespeare
