Eat mint and ‘Feel Good’

mintIn episode five of ‘Feel Good Food’, I talk about an ingredient that has a prominent and secure position in most people’s gardens and is used just as much in winter as it is in the warmer months of summer.

Did you know that mint is the most called upon herb for soothing a great deal of ailments from indigestion to heartburn and the common cold to bad breath?

Did you also know that mint’s menthol component can act as a revitalising air freshener and is extremely helpful in repelling mosquitoes; even ants and mice!

I highly recommend making the Thai Venison Salad in my book, From Paddock to Plate, using a big bunch of mint.

What’s your favourite tropical fruit! Guava? Dragon fruit? Custard Apples? It is always intriguing talking with producers, from all walks of life, about how they grow their produce & their passion for feeding their communities. The importance of supporting & learning from Aussie food producers is rapidly becoming understood by those who eat. As educators, small business owners, parents, grandparents to sporting clubs, we must continue to encourage the population to shop local brands, connect with farmers and pass on these special moments to the next generations. ‍‍ Did you visit Farmers’ Markets over the weekend? Which ones? Let us know! #frompaddocktoplate #feedyourmind #shoplocal #farmersmarkets
