Sweetcorn

Sweetcorn is great in a stir fry, on the barbeque, boiled, or steamed then drizzled with butter.

It is best to eat sweetcorn when ripe (as fresh as possible) and when the kernels are sweet and juicy. It is best to use sweetcorn within a few days of buying it.

You will know if your sweetcorn is still fresh if the kernels let out a white and milky liquid when cut open.

British sweetcorn is at it’s best in August.

An idea of what you can eat sweetcorn with is a pasta salad, hot or cold.

Carrots

Carrots can be eaten raw or cooked, whichever you decide, it will be enjoyed. (Crunchy salads and carrot cake.) British carrots are at their best in August.

They are high in betacarotene, which is great for eye health (not strong enough to help you see in the dark like the trick the English played on the Germans in the world war 🙂 that’s just a myth! )

You can store carrots for up to a week in the vegetable drawer in your fridge.

There are so many menus you can create with carrots and one idea is to make a quick coleslaw.

 

Health Is Wealth

‘A clear, bright eye

that can pierce the sky

with the strength of an eagle’s vision,

and a steady brain

that can bear the strain

and shock of the world’s collision;

A well-knit frame,

with a ruddy flame

aglow, and the pulses leaping

with the measured time

of an inward rhyme,

their beautiful record keeping;

A rounded cheek,

where the roses speak

of a soil that is rich for thriving,

and a chest so grand

that the lungs expand

exultant, without the striving;

A breath like morn,

when the crimson dawn

is fresh in its dewy sweetness;

a manner bright,

and a spirit light,

with joy at its full completeness,

O, give me these,

nature;s harmonies,

and keep all your golden treasures;

for what is wealth

to the boon of health

and its sweet attendant pleasures?’

Isaiah 41:10-12

When things look really bad, remember: God has surprises up His sleeve! God’s surprises can turn things around – and scatter your enemies.

‘So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand…. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced;… though you search for your enemies, you will not find them.’

Isaiah 12:2

Fight fear with trust and, because God gives power upon request, joy is around the corner.

‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.’
