Berrilicious bubbles of vitamin c,
Bursting life into your cells.
Antioxidants glide in deepest purple hue,
Oh ho! These berries are mightily good for you!!!!
I love blackberries, and I’m learning a lot about antioxidants at the mo, if vitality is a destination you’d like to live, it is in berries and other such like freshlings that you’ll find it, not in a five a day way, instead in a fifteen a day a way!
Think fresh, think rainbows, feel great!
The other day I watched with rapture “Nigellisima”, she oozes food lore and loveliness, her recipes look and sound delicious, but how they configure with the bodies blood sugar levels, is another thing altogether.
There is a school of thought that believes our emotions really are found/ felt in our guts! In fact studies have shown that our cellular memory is held in the gut, the very core of our being. Is it any wonder so many people use food as a means to cope and self medicate, rather than to nourish and heal?
My mantra is “Balance, beautiful balance,” there is of course a time for meatza and cheesecake, though luscious smoothies and fresh juices are simply begging your bodies to dive into everyday.
I love nothing more than to sip some lemon water each morning (alkalising is the way forward), followed by a juice and my favourite breakfast, porridge with seasonal berries. Right now, you guessed it – Blackberries!!!
PS – Better than drinking blackberries, picking them with loved ones in the autumnal sunshine and making jam!
