A gift to bring you



You have no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring you.
Nothing seemed right.
What's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine,
or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.
It's no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.
So I've brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.

Coriander



Coriander also known as cilantro is probably native to the middle east and southern Europe. Some papyrus dated from 1500 BC talked about cilantro, meaning that the medicinal virtues of this herb where known by humanity long ago.
Three parts of the plant are used for human consumption. The leaves, the fruits which look like seeds, and the roots ( mostly in Thai cuisine).




The subtil perfume of the coriander and its digestive virtues makes it very used and useful in middle eastern and indian cuisine where it balances the effect of the other spices like for exemple curry or pepper.
The good effect on the digestive system ( digestion, bloated stomach, etc) is one of the well known medicinal virtue of coriander, but not the only one.
Recent studies from Mexican and U.S. scientists have shown that coriander could help fight salmonella. Coriander contains antibacterial agents such as dodecenal and eight other antibiotics compounds that are believed good in help fighting food born illness.




Coriander can help stimulate insuline secretion and lower blood sugar. It also helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and increase HDL (good) cholesterol.
This herb is also rich in minerals such as calcium and manganese, therefore good at helping regulate blood pressure and heart rate.
Coriander is very rich in vitamin K ( 25% per 100g of serving) which helps bone mass building, thus is of a good help in fighting osteoporosis, and also can be of some help in alzheimer disease treatment since it helps limiting neuronal cell damages.
Most of all, coriander is a very subtly perfumed plant that will make any of your culinary preparation smell like heaven on earth.

Pear



Pear is the fruit of the pear tree native to northern Africa and western Europe.
Pear is rich in fiber (around 22%), and also contains a good amount of vitamin C (17%), copper (10%) .
It has been scientifically proven that most of the beneficial vitamins and nutrients of the pear are contained in the skin. Since the skin is also the part which takes on the most pesticides, it is advised to wash it thoroughly before eating, or, if you can, to buy your fruits from organic farming.
Most of the health benefits of the pear comes from its fibers.
Fibers are necessary in the regulation of the digestive system, and helps you maintain a healthy stomach, intestine and colon.
The fibers helps maintaining the good fonction of your colon, and therefore prevents colon inflammation which can lead to colon cancer.
Dietary fiber intake also helps prevent from type 2 diabetes and heart diseases.
The vitamin C and copper are antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory effects and helps protect your immune system. They are also known to be of great help in cancer prevention.




In holistic medicine, pear juice is known to be a good fever reducer and helps fighting a sore throat. The juice must be drank natural and pure just when the symptoms begin.
Boiled pear juice mixed with raw honey might also be of a good help in case of vocal cords issues.

Pear can be eaten raw or cooked. A pear pie is a good way to eat it baked but you might as well just want to bite the fruit and enjoy its freshness and subtil taste.

Bell pepper




Bell pepper is the fruit of a plant of the capsicum annuum family that is consumed as a vegetable.
Bell pepper is native to Mexico and the central american region.
This beautiful and colorful fruit that can be found in different colors, red, orange, green and yellow but also purple or white is a good addition to any type of diet.
It is very rich in vitamin C, up to six time richer than the orange.
Vitamin C helps the immune system, and is very good at helping your body in collagen formation. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body. It is found in cartilage, tendons, skin, muscles, connective tissues and its role is to strengthen them  and provide them structural support.
The collagen production declines with age, and collagen production starts decreasing at around age 40, with all the consequences, wrinkles, cartilage issues, and so on.
While it is good and sane to acknowledge that you will never go back to your young age collagen formation, you can boost your collagen formation naturally by your diet. Bell pepper is one of the food that might help you in this diet.
Bell pepper contains vitamin B6. This vitamin is known for its role in maintaining the nervous system and its benefits in cell renewal system.




The red bell pepper is rich in vitamin A making it a great support for the vision and vitamin E which helps the tissues health and is known to help you protect your skin and hair. It also contains beta-carotene and phytochemicals, providing you with antioxidants and anti inflammatory benefits.
So not only bell peppers are beautiful, they are, like all edibles, healthy, and also very tasty.
They can be eaten fresh or cooked. The red, yellow and orange bell pepper are sweeter in taste than the green one.
My favorite recipe is a mix of bell peppers ( red, green, yellow, orange), sauted in olive oil with onion and fish, seasoned with garlic, parsley and herbes de provence. a pleasure for the eyes, and.... so yummy!!!

Tamarind



Tamarind is a fruit which grows in Asia and Africa.
This sour fruit that you will probably find dried at your local store is a great source of antioxidant.
As so, it helps in cancer prevention.
Tamarind contains vitamin C, carotene and B vitamins. It is also a very good source of  Iron, magnesium, phosphorus, protein and potassium. It helps reduce fever, and is also known for its laxative virtues. It is indeed very effective in helping the digestive system, and fighting constipation.
The B vitamins helps the nervous system, while the magnesium keeps the bones strong. The potassium ( higher than in bananas) helps controlling the blood pressure.

Quietness is my mom in this day,

My home has become their playground
Cynicism, hatred and loss
playing their awful game
in my birthplace.
Quietness is I and I this day,
The beloved is I and I in this day
Contemplation, reflexion and love,
The master of my soul
is I and I in the forever of this day.
Quietness, peacefulness, foreverness,

Artichoke

Artichoke is One of my favorite vegetables to eat which in fact is not a vegetable but a flower bud. It comes from the mediterranean peninsula and is a winter time edible.



This flower bud is full of good stuff for your health...and mine :).
It contains a large quantity of antioxidant which are good for the immune system, and for preventing cardiovascular disease and for cancer prevention. It is very low in calories and fat ( around 47 calories for 100g) , and that makes it a good addition to any low calorie diet.
It also helps lower the blood cholesterol, helps the digestive system and detoxify the liver. This is due to the cynarin it contains.

Artichoke flower bud

My favorite way to eat artichoke is to steam it and eat it with balsamic dressing. You take of the leaves and dip them in your vinegar dressing or any of your favorite sauce, and scrap off the fleshy base with your teeth until you get near to the heart. There is then a "hairy" part that is not edible and that you need to remove before getting to the heart. The heart is the reward of the warrior ;) ....soooo delightful!!!
But there are so many other ways to eat artichoke, from pizza to paella. Just google it and you will find a lot of great recipes to enjoy.
If you want to have the best of the artichoke health benefits, like lowering the blood cholesterol or detoxifying the liver, you can use the artichoke bud leaves that you can boil in water. Once boiled, you will remove the leaves and drink the water, or add it to any of your culinary preparation.

Song of the sea




"Song of the sea" is my favorite movie of the past years. It is supposedly a children movie, but I can tell you that adults may fall in love too.
It has a beautiful story inspired by celtic legends, it has amazing drawings which has become rare these days in animated movies, it has beautiful lyrics, and it is full of teachings about love and loss, but also about brotherhood and spirituality.  If you haven't seen it already, I recommend it to you!
