This year Spring came late, Summer got here late, so unfortunately I didn’t have lots of produce like other years. But it was enough to satisfy the whole family, especially my grandchildren who love the fruit and veggies I grow every year.

Oatmeal Great Benefits for a Stronger Healthier Body

food oatmeal dr martha castro tijuana mexico

Oatmeal is one of my favorite choices of food to eat in the morning. Oatmeal contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that make me feel so much better through out the day. It also contains carbohydrates, proteins and soluble fiber which helps me not to feel bloated. Soluble fiber also reduces the levels of LDL or “bad” cholesterol by blocking its absorption into the bloodstream.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Apples

Other benefits:

Its main ingredient is manganese, which it has been proven scientifically to reduce the inflammation of the joints, improves bone health and it has been linked to lower incidents of seizures in patients with epilepsy.

Oatmeal and Strawberries

If you want to enjoy your oatmeal in the morning you can add some banana, apple, no sugar, water and maybe a bit of low-fat milk, lots of cinnamon one day and the next I add vanilla, one day blue berries next day strawberries. I personally do not like to add pecans but some people can’t eat oatmeal without adding pecans. It’s your choice.

Oatmeal Bananas and Berries

I prefer steel-cut oatmeal. Others prefer the rolled or irish oats. Whatever the kind if you like them, enjoy them!

Strawberry Fiesta Messy Delicious Food To Bring A Smile To Your Face

My strawberries are thriving. They love the weather we are having in my neck of the woods and they ripe fast, so I am having tons of them everyday. It’s so much fun! This year I fertilized them naturally with leaves from my banana trees and other sustainable methods I have; maybe that’s why they are so happy.

ONE OF MY STRAWBERRY PLANTS   😍

FOOD RARITIES with odd ingredients:

Food rarities: to eat or not to eat, that is the question! 🤣😁😆😅

I found these rare combinations of foods in the inter-webs.

People just posted these pics without describing the ingredients and what to do with them. And for the life of me, I couldn’t find the name of them anywhere. I was wondering if any of you know what kind of food this is and if you would eat it!

Delicious Peruvian Marmalade comes from…Smile Today!

This bear likes Peruvian Marmalade 😁

…from this gorgeous, exotic and easy to grow plant in your yard, farm or ranch:

Physalis Peruviana known as Cape Goosberry.-

Physalis peruviana is a plant species of the genus Physalis. It is originally from Peru. The plant and its fruit is known as uchuva (Colombia), Capuli (Peru) Cape gooseberry (South Africa, UK, Australia, New Zealand), Inca berry, Aztec berry, golden berry, giant ground cherry, African ground cherry, Peruvian groundcherry, Peruvian cherry, amour en cage (France, French for “love in a cage”), and sometimes simply Physalis (United Kingdom).

Despite its tart, cherry-like flavor, this small, orange fruit is actually most closely related to the tomatillo. It is exceptionally low in calories and contains several important nutrients such as thiamin, niacin and vitamin C.

“The more harm anyone wants to inflict on me, the better person I become.”–Dr. Martha A. Castro N. MD
