Food as Medicine

Hi & Welcome to the Moonstuff blog! 

We feel very inspired and excited to start blogging some personal, factual, inspirational & magical Stuff with You, and hoping you will share some of Yours with Us! 

I have recently embarked on a 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge! Two a day :) 

Through these 30 days, and possibly beyond, we thought to share with you some wonderful benefits, or not!, of going Greener, especially in connection to your menses. We will post common knowledge, deeper wisdom, thought-provocative voices, questionable statements, reflections, inspirations & insights and anything else juicy we get our hands on from across our Earth!

Here is an inspiring quote by Queen Afua from Sacred Woman' on the Power of Food:

”The place where we heal all our afflictions is in the ’old way’, in the kitchen of our ancestors, where foods contained the power to nourish bodies, minds, and spirits. Our grandmother’s kitchen was a place where women sat around the stove and worked out and balanced thier lives and relationships as they passed around red raspberry and goldenrod tea. They were just being natural women. They came together as sisters around food. They worked with their bare hands and compassionate spirit to heal their families. We must imitate these Sacred Women. We must heal our families during meals, reunions, and family outings as we pass around the food. We’ve come to a time where we must once again heal our families through the wisdom of the ’old’ kitchen. ”

These modern days, this obviously goes for both women & men; the power to use food as medicine. I started my challenge with the following Green Smoothie: Parsley, Apple, Lemon & Avocado.

Om Yum!

  1. Wonderful. Would you consider leading juice challenges? I am too unmotivated to do it myself but would be more so with a group. I need support. I paid for a detox before and had group support. It was fantastic but not in Australia.

  2. Hi Gogogo :) Thanks for your comment! Yes, I think that sounds like a fantastic idea, to do a juice challenge, after the Smoothie one is finished. I will let you know when and see if you are still motivated to join. Love, Ida
