Most tea will fight stress, and mint is no exception. Mint tea is typically used to alleviate digestive trouble. It can calm an upset stomach, relieve nausea and diminish gas. Drinking mint tea will also help remove dangerous bacteria from the digestive system and prevent cold and flu. Along with easing digestive trouble, mint tea provides a number of diverse health benefits. Mint can freshen breath and is useful against colds because of its ability to decongest stuffy sinuses and reduce chest pain. Mint can aid in maintaining a healthy weight, since mint leaves help break down fat cells in the body. Mint is also effective at repelling mosquitoes and treating inflamed insect bites. read more here: http://voices.yahoo.com/health-benefits-mint-tea-6115196.html
Delicious strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
Delightful if blended or juiced.
You can also blend them… freeze in Popsicle molds… and enjoy a healthy ice pop. 🙂

Lentil & Kale Soup Recipe
Clean & chopped Kale leaves
1 cup Lentils (baby brown)
3-4 Garlic Cloves
1 chopped Onion
1 tbsp. Coconut Oil
Juice of 1 Lemon
Pinch of Salt
6 cups Water
1-2 tbsp. Flour
1- Clean and chop the Kale leave. Wash the cup of Lentils. Chop the garlic and onion.
2- Saute the onion and garlic in coconut oil (or any other oil of choice). Add the kale and lentils and saute some more.
3- Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of flour and some salt and stir all ingredients together. Flour is used to thicken the soup. You can use any other thickener of choice or just discard altogether.
4- Add 6 cups of water and let them boil. When they start to boil reduce the heat to medium-low and let them simmer for 30 minutes or until the lentils are done.
5- Add the lemon juice and stir.

My 9 month old son loves this recipe. I usually prepare a big batch on Sunday with other yummy recipes. I then freeze them in ice cube trays and he is set for the week at daycare. His usual serving is around 3 ice cubes 🙂
Now that this month is the holy month of Ramadan, I thought of sharing with you a few foods that would hydrate to your system.
Cucumber, pineapple, watermelon, celery, eggplant, cantaloupe, bell peppers, green salad, chicken soup, and a cup of yogurt are great high-water-content foods.
Lettuce, strawberries, apples, and all kinds of vegetable juice recipes are also a great options to hydrating your system.
