This tea is excellent to help relieve fatigue and when you feel like you might be getting a cold and if you already got the cold.

These ingredients are stables in my kitchen and have been for decades. In fact I always take umeboshi  and twig tea bags with me on over night trips.  I can always get some hot water kudzuto steep the tea bag.  And either add a little umeboshi into the tea or right in my mouth if the tea and umeboshi are not in the same place.

Most natural health food stores carry all of the above ingredients. Or order items from Gold Mine Natural Foods.

Teff – Ancient Whole Grain

Teff – is the newest of the new/ancient grains.  Originally a staple food of Ethiopia, teff is now grown in Idaho.  Only 1/150th the size of wheat.  It is a concentrated powerhouse of nutrients.

Teff is relatively inexpensive and snap to make.

Teff

I love it for breakfast! The first time I ate it was in the morning on an empty stomach.  I felt an inner calm, strength and endurance that I related the feeling to the teff breakfast.

While cholesterol is a hot-button topic, years of research have linked dietary cholesterol with heart disease. The liver produces all of the cholesterol the body needs to function. Consuming excess cholesterol can result in a build-up of plaque within the arteries.

Fun fact: Only animal-based foods contain cholesterol; plant-based foods are naturally cholesterol free. By keeping your salad focused on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes, it is easy to keep the cholesterol content down to zero!
