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.
