Unfortunately we only get one body that has to last us the whole of our life, imagine using something for 70, 80 or even 90 years! Hard to believe and yet that is exactly what we do with our body, we use it and sometimes we abuse it. Thinking about our body having to last an excessive amount of time should really push us into making sure we look after our body. There is a saying you are what you eat and it is so true.
If we feed our body the goodness it needs then in turn our body will be in a much better condition, with this in mind we should first focus on breaking our body down into different parts such as the brain, the heart, the lungs and so on. Knowing which parts of our body will benefit from certain foods will enable us to maintain a healthy balanced diet, something that with the introduction of super foods into our diet we cannot help but achieve.
Super foods are the types of food that have the highest nutritional value and are therefore the ones that you body will most benefit from. By feeding our body all the goodness that it needs we can then give it the best chance of being in peak health which is so vitally important when it comes to our bodies fighting germs and diseases.
Our digestive system is one of the parts of our body that is vital in its need to be kept in a healthy condition and there are many super foods that you can eat that will help so much with the digestive system for example, anything with fibre such as broccoli, apples and cooked kidney beans. As long as your digestive system is working properly and efficiently then you can be sure that it is helping to break down and digest all the vitamins and minerals and fats that your body parts need to maintain peak health.
Fish is considered a really good super food as fish contains Omega 3 fatty acids which are essential for a healthy heart and in turn can have a good effect on your blood pressure. Colourful fruits are also very helpful to your blood pressure. There are also super foods such as spinach and strawberries that will help with different functions within the brain. Garlic is a very good super food and is wonderful for helping fight against illness.
Like everything you need to take things in moderation, if you have too many super foods that are high in fibre then you may do more harm than good with your digestive system having to work overtime, especially bad if you suffer from conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is also safe to say that you do not have to cut out the foods altogether that are not so good for your body, if you supply your body with the right amount of super foods it needs, then providing you make sure it is in moderation, the occasional tasty junk food really cannot do much harm.

Is it a Winner?
Image by yummysmellsca A slab of my "tester" pie recipe that I'm planning to use for the blueberry pie bake-off at the Evergreen Brick Works blueberry festival on August 14th. Not being able to taste it myself I'm relying on others to give me honest, constructive feedback, and so far I've been getting raves, especially the wheat germ and Grand Marnier-spiked crust! Turns out I'm pretty good at gauging sweetness and viscosity levels in the filling, which is amusing because I don't even like blueberry pie! So what do you think? Do we have a winner? yummysmells.blogspot.com/2010/08/blueberries-baby.html

2012 Zaagkii Hannahville 4-12-12 (57)
Image by Zaagkii Wings and Seeds Project (Wilson, Michigan) – A native plants restoration and pollinator protection workshop in July 2012 was held at the Hannahville Indian Community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and attended by the representatives of five Michigan and Wisconsin Native American communities. At the end of the workshop, students from the Hannahville Indian School (Nah Tah Wahsh PSA) enjoyed planting saplings including apple trees on April 12, 2012 at the Hannahville Indian Community nation. The planting and a workshop are part of the U.S. Forest Service-funded Zaagkii Wings and Seeds Project. With smiles on their faces and dirt on their hands, the students had fun planting the apple tree and cedar tree saplings. Kinomaagewin-Aki: Teachings from the Earth Videos about the workshop that include the children can be found at: www.youtube.com/ZaagkiiTV www.WingsAndSeeds.org During the Hannahville workshop, a northern Michigan Native American elder said he believes something is amiss in nature and encouraged tribal communities to join with non-tribal partners for pollinator protection and the restoration of native plants. A crisis is imminent. Honeybees and native pollinators such as bumblebees are declining at alarming rates as the native plants that sustain them are decreasing due to habitat loss via non-native invasive plants. “It is your responsibility – as well as ours – to be tenders of the garden,” said Earl Meshigaud, Hannahville Potawatomi Indian Community Tribal Council Member and Culture Department Director. “That’s what we were put here for – to take care of God’s Creation.” The workshop and other related projects like a tribal greenhouse are examples of Native American tribes and the U.S. Forest Service working together to restore native plants and protect pollinators. ------- The workshop was entitled: Kinomaagewin-Aki Teachings from the Earth A Native Plants Restoration and Pollinator Protection Workshop – For Native American Tribal Communities in Northern Michigan Insights into traditional Native cultural teachings, medicinal plants and challenges facing native plants restoration efforts in Indian country An overview of native plant restoration and pollinator protection efforts among Native American tribal communities Perspectives from the U.S. Forest Service on grant possibilities and technical support Sponsored by the Cedar Tree Institute in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service and the Hannahville Indian Community Representatives of 5 tribal communities attended the April 2012 pollinator protection and native plants restoration workshop hosted by the Hannahville Indian Community Represented at the workshop: The Hannahville Indian Community The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) The Sault Ste.
