NOURISHING TIP The Power of Peaches! This rich source of antioxidants has been shown to start decreasing oxidative stress within 30 min of consumption but be sure to eat the fuzzy peel as this is where a large amount of the antioxidants hang out! Peaches are best eaten fresh or frozen as many nutrients are lost in the canning process.
Meet Heather Woodruff, CNP RNCP ROHP:
Digestion Guru and Certified Nutritional Practitioner.
I love helping others take control of their food sensitivities through deep digestive healing. It is so empowering to truly understand your unique body and discover the abundance of delicious nourishing food you CAN actually eat! You can eat the healthiest food on the planet but if you’re not absorbing any of its goodness, you simply can’t benefit from it. When I am not perusing the farmer’s market you can be sure to find me practicing my asanas at a Vancouver yoga studio, surfing some north pacific waves, hopping the globe on another travelling adventure or simply puttering in the kitchen, (usually in company with my brilliant husband and spunky little girl.)
