This week a good friend of mine asked me when my next blog post was coming. I told him to check out instagram as I have been doing a series of ‘mini-blogs’ on there. He gently reminded me that not all of us are on instagram(!) so I thought it only fair that I share some of those with you here.
Oh hey there you teeny tiny nutritional powerhouse giant! Goji berries hail from my part of the world (China) where they have been used for donkeys years both in cooking and medicinally. These little beauties pack a punch when it comes to what they can do for you! They contain all essential amino acids and have a high concentration of protein. They are also loaded with vitamin C, contain more carotenoids than any other food, and are high in fibre. Boasting 15 times the amount of iron found in spinach, as well as calcium, zinc and selenium. This amazing little superfruit also contains natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Their powerful antioxidant properties not only boost the immune system but will make your skin G L O W. I would like to suggest you get some in your life immediately. Mine are from Just Green here in Hong Kong. Pow pow.
If you ARE on instagram and want to get straight to the good stuff follow me @holtinhongkong
