Darryle Pollack, author, artist, cancer survivor and writer for the Huffington Post, recently praised the positive effects of moringa that she learned about after meeting Grace O and reading up on the miracle plant on FoodTrients.com in The Age GRACEfully Cookbook. Almost unknown in the United States, its popularity is growing worldwide thanks to what many believe are its health benefits — ranging from boosting immunity, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, controlling blood pressure, blood sugar, increasing breast milk, even headache relief.
“With a boost from Grace O’s culinary creativity, moringa could soon become a household word,” says Darryle in her article.
Moringa and a variety of everyday and more exotic foods contain the powerful 26-plus nutrients that form the foundation of Grace O’s age-fighting program called FoodTrients . As you might deduce, Foodtrients is a marriage of powerful nutrients and delicious dishes, a philosophy inspired by the marriage of her parents.
Here’s how Grace describes Foodtrients:
“The nutrients in our food lead to our overall wellness . . . I start creating a recipe only after I find a fruit or grain or spice that has something beneficial to offer my body…To create my recipes, I scoured scientific studies, dug into long-established knowledge of medicinal herbs, sought out natural ingredients from cultures all over the world and drew on memories of my mother’s culinary wisdom.”
