Rosemary – herbal Power-House

Rosemary often grows wild in the Mediterranean region.  In our climate it thrives quite well in the warm season in your backyard or in pots.  The plant smells pleasant and intense because the narrow leaves are rich in essential oils.

The distilled essential oil is used for topical application with joint and muscle rheumatism and circulatory disorders.

Rosemary is one of the most popular herbs in our kitchen. Its fine-needled foliage has a unique, spicy aroma.  This spice goes wonderfully with many Italian dishes, especially meat in all possible variations. It’s especially delicious on grilled meat.  It’s best to sprinkle on top before serving, cut into small pieces. Food seasoned with rosemary is not only delicious, it is also easy to digest. A herb infused oil prepared with rosemary goes particularly well with meat dishes.

Reasons for healthy nutrition: Fewer sick leaves due to diet-related diseases or deficiency symptoms

Especially in our school children, a lack of ability to concentrate is being observed more and more frequently. Even when it comes to brain performance, healthy eating is the keyword. No sugar and white flour products, healthy fats, high-quality protein, a large portion of vital food and plenty of drinking water – this is the optimal brain-food, which increases the ability to concentrate.

International World Environment Day

As a nutrition concept that focuses on a clean, conscious and sustainable lifestyle, this day is particularly important for Metabolic Balance. Anyone who wants to eat clean and consciously pays attention to the type of cultivation, the origin of the ingredients used and the sustainable packaging. So it’s better to do without packaging than using disposable or plastic packaging. It’s good for man and nature. Thank you!

The Gender of Fennel

Visiting my mom I went to the farmer’s market for her to buy some fresh produce, including Fennel, which she likes to eat raw. On my way out she calls after me and says: “Watch out and get a female fennel!” – – –fennel-1614693_1920 (Pixaby by Peter-facebook)

After a long thinking pause … “Say whaaat???”. Needless to say: “Mama knows best!”

Back on my LapTop I researched the topic and found a really interesting article by Marissa from Sicily, Italy.

Having said that – and the discussion is still out if it is the female or the male fennel that tastes better – look for the round fennel, with thicker stalks. That fennel has less “threads” (filaments) and is overall more tasteful and delicious. Marissa also implies, that at the end of the season you rather find the flatter fennel.
