Antioxidant rich food


The current assignment for my naturopathy course is designing a balanced daily meal plan that includes antioxidant rich foods at every meal.

As I've a love of following and eating to the seasons my menu plan will be based on autumn eating.

Lots of yummy seasonal food were in our vege box this week. FEIJOAS were a plenty YUM!


A standard organic box was delivered in error - totally not enough to last us the week.


my vege garden is winding down from summer - so its still supplementing the vege boxes with tomatoes, corn, zuchinni lots of passion fruit, walnuts and our first chestnut (very thrilling!)




My business logo is being designed for me here's the artists sketch drawings.
I'm going to pick no 4 for business card. What one do you like?

  1. Hi, I was very interested in this post. Your feijoas were very interesting. I can honestly say I have never heard or seen this before and I enjoyed learning about it. I did a search and also saw what a pretty flower it has. Thank you for the introduction.

    1. Feijoas are yummy one of my fav fruits. The flower always reminds me of our NZ Christmas tree the pohutukawa - well sort of.

  2. Yes I too like Number 4 - your logo is eyecatching & interesting, but still leaves room for the important details.
    I wish you were my neighbour Leanne - I have so much silverbeet in the garden at the moment - I could share it with you :-)

      No 4 is what I picked too & no 6 for the top of creams.

  3. It's hard to tell from the screen but my advice after 14 years in business is to pick the clearest and simplest.

  4. Yes, #4. It has a nice design but plenty of room to read the address.

  5. I like number 5 as it is a circle and to me a circle has no beginning and no end and that is what learning something new is all about.

    1. I do love your No 5 circle analogy soo true!!!

      I've picked the herb borage as my logo cos I love borage. Herablist Gerard said borage ‘maketh a man merry and joyful.’ The Greeks and Romans believed that borage was a source of courage and comfort.(something I wish to be for clients who find me)
      Borage is also a 5 star flower which for me symbolises the four elements air, fire, water, earth and four directions east, north, west and south. With the 5th point being spirit.
      I asked for a dragonfly which symbolises change, wisdom and enlightenment, (again what I hope to be for clients) and the communications from the elemental world. This elemental world is made up of the tiny spirits of plants, and of the elements air, earth, fire, and water. (anyone who sits with nature will get this)
      Plus I asked for the dragonfly to fly widershins aka anticlockwise as here in the southern hemisphere our sun moves anticlockwise.
      So in my logo I've lots of little meanings that are really special to me and I'm thrilled with the energy and work my artist is putting into it. Love Leanne

  6. I like number four the best. The curve and swirl are just pleasing to the eye.

    1. no 4 it will be! My artist is designing flat stick as I have a client requesting a voucher to her friend as a birthday present for her friend to come and see me. I'm thrilled as word of mouth is just the best advertising in the whole wide world me thinks.

  7. I guess you are fan of Veggies. I wish I could also hold a garden where I could sow some green vegetable which would be insecticide and pesticide free. By the thank you for providing the list of antioxidant rich foods. I want to add to the list Acai Berry Juice.

    Best Regards,
