The Power of Healing Foods

The Power of Healing Foods- Ayurveda, which translates as “knowledge of life,” dates back 5,000 years to the ancient Sanskrit texts, the Vedas. It’s a system of healing that examines physical constitution, emotional nature, and spiritual outlook in the context of the universe. It’s widely known as the sister science to yoga, and in accordance to the principles of ayurveda, these healing foods enliven your body, stimulate its repair, and rejuvenate your health.

Lemons are both purifying and nourishing, and they stimulate digestion. For reducing toxins, drink unsweetened lemonade as many times during the day as desired.

Dates and Figs are prized as excellent sources of energy. They also help build tissues. Eat one or two every day.

Almonds are nourishing and life-supporting. Ayurveda recommends blanching and peeling almonds because their skins are slightly toxic. Eat several almonds daily to increase strength and energy.

Ginger is often referred to as “the universal medicine.” It promotes good digestion and helps remove ama. Dried ground ginger is more concentrated in its flavor and its effects. To aid digestion, sprinkle a thin slice of fresh ginger with lemon juice and salt, and eat one-half hour before a meal.

Try inserting one or two of these suggested foods into your everyday routine and see what the change can do for you!

White Pizza with Fresh Ricotta

For anyone who has been to Little Compton in Rhode Island – you will appreciate the fresh ricotta or mozzarella available from the Narragansett Creamery. Now available in our cheese department.

white pizza

This makes two small oval pizzas, enough to serve 4-5 as an appetizer or 2-3 for a light lunch or supper.
2 pizza shells
1 cup Narragansett Creamery or fresh ricotta cheese
8 oz  fresh mozzarella
1 large egg
1-2 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced
1 oz parmaggiano reggiano, grated
5 or 6 large leaves of fresh basil
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450F, higher if it will go.
In a small bowl, mix the ricotta with the egg, salt, and pepper. Slice the mozzarella into 1/8″ slices and grate the parm. Stack and roll the basil leaves tightly, then slice them thinly.
For each pizza: Place the pizza shell on a cornmeal-dusted pan or, if you are using a pizza stone, peel. Spread with the ricotta mixture, leaving a small edge. Distribute the mozzarella and the garlic over the pizza shell and sprinkle with the parm and a little additional freshly grated pepper. Bake 5-8 minutes, depending on your oven heat; turn on the broiler and brown the cheese a little if desired. Remove the pizza to a board and generously garnish with the chiffonade of basil; drizzle with extra virgin if you like. Cut and serve.

Natural Salmon From the Faroe Islands
Available in the Seafood Dept

Cedar Plank Salmon from Janssens Market
Cedar Plank Salmon from Janssens Market

The Faroe Islands is a small, remote island group located in the middle of the North Atlantic with a population of less than 50,000 people.  The industry is committed to maintaining the highest levels of fish welfare and sustainability; this is clearly reflected in the high quality of farmed salmon from the Faroe Islands.

The Faroe Islands is the perfect location for premium salmon production. Its remote location is complemented by pristine clear waters, cool steady sea temperatures, strong currents and accessible fjords that cut deep inland.  Drawn to this perfect mix of conditions, wild Atlantic Salmon from all over northern Europe make their way north of the Faroe Islands to feed.
