When it comes to okra, many people are unaware that this often-fried southern vegetable contains a hefty amount of nutrition. Cultures in Africa have employed okra for a number of maladies, including diabetes and liver disease.

This post is part of Intoxicated on Life’s Wellness Wednesday Well, it isn’t winter yet, and heck, it doesn’t even feel like winter in my part of the country. Yesterday it got to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, in the beginning of December! Craziness. But despite that (and in my rebellious spirit), I’ve wanted to share with […]

Homemade Pickled Okra (PLUS: Coconut Oil Winner Announced!)

Posted 17 September 2012 | By | Categories: gardening, health food | No Comments

My okra plants in my organic garden have just started exploding with okra pods recently, which is weird considering we’re only 5 days away from fall. Although I love fall and winter weather, at the same time I’m hoping the seasons will be stretched (just a bit), so I can get more okra and zucchini […]

Posted 30 August 2012 | By | Categories: health food, healthy foods | 12 Comments

I’ve found a new french fry recipe that I love. I don’t usually go for fries from white potatoes, due to their high glycemic index (and also the fact that they are often fried in genetically modified soy and/or canola oils).

But, I just couldn’t imagine going without it for myself. Many people, upon hearing my love for chocolate, are shocked that I support such a […]

Here’s a spicy, simply “noodle” bowl I put together for lunch today. In my previous post, I mentioned the top 7 health benefits of cayenne pepper. In this recipe, I use jalapeƱo pepper, which has many of the same health benefits, including raising the body’s metabolic rate and increasing cardiovascular health. Have you ever made […]
