Blackberries are loaded with anti-oxidants, making them an excellent choice against free-radical damage and for healthy cardio-vascular support. Not only have they been shown to have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties they are also rich in vitamin C and manganese. Being a family of avid smoothie drinkers, they tend to make a keen appearance in our breakfast (or anytime) drinks, in a multitude of different ways. Here are two of my favorite smoothie combinations that feature blackberries…
One of my favorite combinations is blackberry with coconut milk or cashew cream. This blend creates a thick, rich creamy purple smoothie that everyone loves. It works well with a frozen banana, although it still works nicely at room t

While you can make a habit of drinking water first thing in the morning to help stay hydrated, as many ancient medicinal arts suggest, sipping water throughout the day is also important. Remember to opt for pure, clean, filtered water whenever possible. You would be surprised to find out how disgusting tap water can be.
Given the profound impact of what we eat and the general public’s limited knowledge about the widely varying environmental footprint of different foods, I’m thrilled that our government plans to provide direction on food choices that are better for human health and the planet.

Plum Pudding Pie’ (which is somewhere between a pudding/cake and a pie) is an excellent way to create a bit of kitchen alchemy and enjoy this simply lovely fruit. Being gluten-free, it’s surprisingly light. It serves wonderfully as a hot pudding straight out of the oven, either completely by itself or with vanilla or coconut sauce. It also works really well as a cold pie dessert or healthy lunchbox snack.
