I’m a big fan of John Oliver’s commentaries, as evidenced by this previous post about John Oliver vs. the food industry. And while it may have been more appropriate to show a picture of John Oliver, it was more amusing to me to use the photo I used, and you’ll understand when you watch this video about John Oliver & his thoughts about sugar.

As someone with a design background, I have a special love for infographics (as evidenced by the ones I’ve made about food intolerance symptoms, healthy skin, and nutrients for ADHD), so when this one about the newest superfoods was brought to my attention, I figured I had to share.
Some of these super foods are new enough that they haven’t yet come across my radar and/or I haven’t seen them available locally, but others like manuka honey and maca root, I’ve definitely seen and even sampled. I even have a recipe for Paleo cereal that uses a bit of maca! Worth a try, in my opinion! Have you tried any of these newest superfoods? If so, how did you eat them? And by all means, if you have a recipe, please share in the comments!

Editor’s note: Please welcome back Alex James of Alex James Wellness. Alex had previously written about Vitamin Water, and now she’s back with some ways on how to make stir fry meals healthy – healthier than you already think they are! After you read this, put these tips to practice by trying out these stir fry recipes: Paleo Cantonese Chow Mein, Lo Bak (daikon) noodle stir-fry, Weeknight dinner stir-fry, Dumpling stuffing ground pork stir-fry, and the ever-popular (and quick!) Bacon Coleslaw stir-fry.
I love a good stir fry, don’t you? So simple, easy, and delicious. Here are my top 5 tips for a healthy homemade stir fry!
I have to confess that I approach Chinese-style cooking with much the same attitude as my parents – chop a bunch of ingredients, toss them in, taste, season and voilà! Dinner! So I was inspired when I saw A Girl Worth Saving’s Paleo Crispy Noodle recipe, I wanted to make my own real food, safe-for-me-to-eat, Cantonese Chow Mein. Basically, this recipe is me throwing together ingredients that are typical to Chinese stir-frying and tossing them together and declaring it delicious.
And here’s the thing – that’s the way I think more people should approach cooking. Buy real, whole food ingredients. Toss them together. Season them. See what happens! This is why, you’ll see that the recipe below includes an ingredient that’s probably never seen in real Chinese cooking – nutritional yeast. I added the nutritional yeast to the spiralized turnip noodles because it worked in giving the noodles a more savory, ‘umami’ flavour. So how authentic is this recipe? Well, my mama will probably say it’s not, especially because of this ‘special’ ingredient. After all, she did say my ‘char siu’ recipe was a little lacking in authenticity ;) But for me, it works, so I write it down in hopes that I’ll be able to re-create it again when I want to.
Say the words “America’s BIGGEST problem” and what do you think about? The economy? The war on drugs? Dr. Kirk Parsley talks about America’s biggest problem in this TEDx talk. Even better, he talks about what the solution to this problem is. Part of the issue is that most people don’t think this problem affects them.
The problem may not be what you think it is, and the solution is pretty easy, 100% natural and it’s FREE.
The solution improves our brains, bodies and even our sex lives. What is it?
