Pin It


Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead plus Turnips

After watching "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" with Joe Cross this week,  I've increased my vegetable intake.  Joe Cross is charismatic, honest and from Australia - a great combination.  The movie is divided into two segments.  The 1st segment is Joe's journey to being healthier.  The 2nd segment is the journey of someone Joe met along the way, Phil.  Both journeys are inspiring.

Now on to my discovery this week.  I love salads and like to include this or that to see if it adds something to my salad.  My latest experiment has been - Raw Turnips.

Have you ever tried raw turnips?  They're crunchy, crispy and zesty.  Who knew?

A few "Turnip" tips I picked up this week...when buying turnips, the smaller the better.  Turnips last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.  If you decide to cook them, adding a potato to the pot takes the bitter taste out.

Thanks for visiting ~ Reia

PS - for more information on the movie, visit "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead".  It was made in 2010 and is 97 minutes in length.  (FYI - I watched it on Netflix.)

Last year I went into an organic kick and I feel so much better.

Adriana from - I've wondered if organic could make a difference. Nice to hear it did for you. Reia

I always see this on Netflix recommendations, I have to watch it - it reminds me of Jamie Oliver food revolution! And turnips - will have to look for them at Whole Foods looks like an interesting veggie (never had it before! haha).

Miranda M from - I grew up with turnips (cooked) with greens but never raw and what a difference NOT cooking them makes. I look forward to hearing what you think.

I don't think I've heard of Jamie Oliver's food revolution - thanks for the new name. Now I have someone new to check out.

Thanks also for your comment and keep up the great work on your blog! Reia
