Do you really need fresh blueberries in February? Is a sweet potato a mainstay of your summer table? Why? Yes, these items may be present in stores these days due to various growing seasons across the globe but is the food really top in nutrition if it is picked, held in trucks and transported thousands of miles over land and sea?

Three months after a fire ripped through Cove Creek Assisted Living Facility, repairs are complete, but even as Reverend G and her cat, Gabriel move back into their apartment, the retired pastor realizes life just isn’t the same. She continues to minister to her fellow residents — the widower who reads the same book over and over and the woman who waits by the front door for the family who never arrives. Even Gabriel is back at work, making his rounds and forecasting death. But while Reverend G is able to find the words to conduct a funeral service, anticipates the birth of her first grandchild and plans her future with her beloved, Chris, she battles her worsening Alzheimer’s symptoms — memory loss, paranoia, anger and fear. Now, her worst nightmare seems to be coming true. God hasn’t spoken to her in weeks. Has Reverend G lost her connection with God?
RJ Thesman has been a writer since she flipped open her Red Chief tablet and scribbled her first story. After writing 4 non-fiction books and almost 500 articles, she woke up one day with a novel in her head. That novel became "The Unraveling of Reverend G."
Thesman enjoys teaching writing workshops and helping writers birth their words. She is a certified life coach, works as a writing coach and as a coach for women who are Starting Over Single.
Thesman is the mother of an adult son, and she enjoys reading, gardening and cooking - especially anything with blueberries. Thesman lives in the heart of Kansas with her son and an elderly cat.
The Boastful Blueberry – A Super Food With Bragging Rights Blueberries are one of the super foods we hear a lot about, and with good reason. These delicious, deep blue summer berries are well-known for their antioxidants, containing the highest amount of any other berries. However, blueberries have some other specific health benefits that are worth talking about. Let's take a look. Link to recipe on my blog
What is Protein?
See also: What is Fibre?
The word ‘protein’ refers to a type of molecule in food that can be broken down into amino acids. The body needs twenty amino acids - as a biological machine it can create (or synthesize) eleven of these itself. However there are nine, called ‘essential amino acids’ that the body cannot create and has to gain through the consumption of food.
These ‘essential amino acids’ are: Tryptophan, Threonine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Valine and Histidine.
When we eat, the body breaks down the protein in food in order to create the amino acids that it needs.
Although most foods contain protein some foods are richer in some of the essential amino acids than others. Usually, therefore, foods need to be combined so that the body receives all the amino acids it needs on a daily basis – part of the reason that a varied, balanced diet is essential to us. For example, if you ate only blueberries you may start to lack the Tryptophan, Lysine and Histidine that your body needs - introducing some meat and/or cheese into your diet would help to address these deficiencies.
USDA scientists analyzed antioxidant levels in more than 100 different foods, including fruits and vegetables. Each food was measured for antioxidant concentration as well as antioxidant capacity per serving size. Cranberries, blueberries, and blackberries ranked highest among the fruits studied. Beans, artichokes, and Russet potatoes were tops among the vegetables. Pecans, walnuts, and hazelnuts ranked highest in the nut category.
USDA chemist Ronald L. Prior says the total antioxidant capacity of the foods does not necessarily reflect their health benefit. Benefits depend on how the food's antioxidants are absorbed and utilized in the body. Still, this chart should help consumers trying to add more antioxidants to their daily diet.
How Antioxidants Help Prevent Oxidation
As oxygen interacts with cells of any type - an apple slice or, in your body, the cells lining your lungs or in a cut on your skin -- oxidation occurs. This produces some type of change in those cells. They may die, such as with rotting fruit. In the case of cut skin, dead cells are replaced in time by fresh, new cells, resulting in a healed cut.
This birth and death of cells in the body goes on continuously, 24 hours a day. It is a process that is necessary to keep the body healthy. "Oxidation is a very natural process that happens during normal cellular functions," researcher Jeffrey Blumberg, PhD, professor of nutrition at Tufts University in Boston, tells WebMD.
Yet there is a downside. "While the body metabolizes oxygen very efficiently, 1% or 2% of cells will get damaged in the process and turn into free radicals," he says.

LPS Radio Network - Everyday Angels with Marie Elisa, welcomes Celine Koropchak, research scientist and a successful blueberry farmer. Show is at 8:00 pm eastern standard time
Celine’s childhood was marked by her unique gift of sensitivity. As a child she articulated the experience as the presence of imaginary friends she named “Tovarysh,” the word for friend in the Slavic language. These divine messengers have remained a benevolent presence throughout her life. With a biology degree from Bucknell University, Celine pursued a career in medical research at Stanford University Medical Center and Duke University Medical Center. She has over 30 publications in infectious disease, biochemistry and cardiovascular scientific journals. Ten years ago, Celine realized a lifelong dream when she became a blueberry farmer. She started with 600 tiny starter plants, now yielding over a half a ton of blueberries each season, supplying local universities, corporate cafeterias, and farmer’s market. One With All of Thee: Growing Your Sacred Connection, is a collection of messages Celine has received and assembled as a practical tool to help others with awareness, serenity, and greater purpose.

The anti inflammatory diet is one that strikes fear in the hearts of many. What is it? Are companies and/or people just out to make money promoting it?
Anti-Inflammatory diet: A list of anti inflammatory foods include:
a. Berries: especially dark reds and blues like strawberries and blueberries
b. Vegetables-darker the color the better, including dark green kale and spinach
c. Whole grains-including oatmeal, quinoa, barley and farro. Avoid sugary or starchy foods that jack up your sugar level.
d. Healthy oils-found in nuts and fish. Saturated fat found in full fat dairy and meat fuel the inflammatory fire.
General rule of thumb: if it has a label, stay away!
The Weston Price diet is similar. Dr. Weil's program is similar.
The body responds to many conditions by initiating the inflammatory cascade. Foods can really make a difference. Do you need supplements?
