Certain foods can have anti-inflammatory qualities.
Inflammation of any part of your body is your immune system’s response to an infection, injury or irritation. Localized swelling, redness and pain are the usual warning signs and symptoms of inflammation. Now we’re learning that foods we eat can contribute to a similar inflammatory response!
While we usually think of inflammation as something outside the body, inflammation inside the body may cause strokes, heart disease and a variety of other ailments. Nicholas Perricone, MD, author of a number of anti-aging books, proposes that inflammation may well be the force behind premature aging. He and other researchers believe that widespread inflammation is largely the result of our diet and may be the main factor in the rise of a number of degenerative diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis and Alzheimer’s Disease.
If your diet consists mostly of foods cooked at high temperatures (most “fast food” falls into this category) and foods that are high in sugar and hydrogenated or refined oils (chips, margarine and many processed foods), you are more likely to be experiencing inflammation.
What types of foods should you eat to combat inflammation? Dr. Perricone and others recommend:
  • Fruits, such as apples, berries, fresh pineapple, lemons, limes
  • Vegetables, such as onions, greens (spinach, broccoli, kale), garlic
  • Spices, such as cinnamon, ginger, basil, mint, parsley, rosemary
  • Nuts and seeds, such as sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds
  • Fish, such as halibut, salmon, sardines, oysters
  • Olive oil
  • Beverages, such as green tea, black tea, red wine and lots of water!
Fortunately, we can control inflammation in our body by watching the foods we eat. Try to introduce at least one anti-inflammatory food into every meal. Many quickly notice relief from some of the symptoms that have been bothering them. Plus, as an added bonus, they’re better able to help you maintain a healthier weight!

You can Farm by Joel Salatin....Book review

You can Farm by Joel Salatin    The Entrepreneur's Guide to Start & Succeed in a Farming Enterprise

Joel Salatin writes a great book. It was very informative and an enjoyable read. It's as if he is sitting in the room with you telling you exactly what you need to do to be successful at farming on your own terms, as it should be done. I would recommend this book to anyone the slightest bit curious about how America can improve its food supply and help its rural economy. The techniques that he describes begin with respect for the land, respect for the animals, respect for the environment, and respect for the people that produce the food.Salatin also points out that we have very little, if any, knowledge about the materials we ingest many times each day. Many of us  do not know where our "food" came from or what it took to make it.

This book is filled with stories of successes and failures of many people and various farm enterprises.  The author uses holistic management fundamentals on his farm which provide a firm structure for developing healthy soil, the basis for any prosperous farm. He covers insurance, record keeping, land acquisition, and equipment.
I highly recommend this book
