Want a posh salad? Eating healthy is great for the heart but maybe not always easy on the pocket, especially if organic is on the menu.


But why buy when you can grow your own greens right in your own yard? Yes, permaculture is trending now for so many good reasons and you wouldn’t want to miss out. BONUS: If you’re thinking of listing “get healthier” or “lose extra kilos” as your resolutions this coming year, this one small change in your lifestyle could be the key to getting there, and then some.

Food as Medicine. :: May we reflect on how lucky and privileged we are to have access to good food. Many people in the world wouldn’t dream of being able to eat smashed avo and poached eggs with a coffee for their breakfast. I am now fortunate enough to be able to grow my own food on some land, and make lots of my own meals from scratch with quality organic ingredients. Nettle pesto, ginger and chilli sauerkraut, seed and nut bread, grass fed meat, home grown greens, radishes, beetroot, farm eggs.. i feel fortunate as I sit down to my meals and reflect on appreciating the nourishment it gives to my body. :: Food makes such a difference to how we feel and act, our health is the most precious thing, and may we who have the opportunity to feed ourselves we’ll be eternally grateful and mindful of others that may not be so fortunate. :: #foodasmedicine #farmlife #organicfood #nopesticides #forthesoil #grateful #appreciatefood #healthisourinsurance #thepermapixie
