A world united by a fight against a horrid Virus - Covid-19 is on the lips of everyone in all corners of the world!

How can we fight this in our own homes?

  • Fist and foremost by staying away from crowded places
  • Sanitizing hands
  • Not touching your face and especially not rubbing your eyes
  • Sanitize all surfaces in the home, door knobs, light switches; in fact anything you regularly touch!
  • Sanitize cellphones, wallets, keys and spectacles
  • Shower immediately after returning from visits away from home
  • Wash clothes in hot water

All these measures may seem drastic, but this is a virus that our bodies' immune system struggles with.

Good nourishing foods rich in Vitamin C, Zinc & Copper can assist greatly, plus having plenty of fluids like soup, broths, herbal teas, lemon water, golden milk, ginger & turmeric tea.

I would like to share a nourishing broth, a delicious salad plus a medicinal drink using the Nasturtium plant with the Fruits & Veggies Monday community of @lenasveganliving. A big thank you to Lena and the other sponsors @naturalmedicine, @plantstoplanks and @vegansofsteemit as well as @barbara-orenya for the gorgeous wonkies!

Not just a pretty face – the nasturtium plant is nature’s antibiotic; packed with Vitamin C and a great immune booster.
Nasturtium is known to relieve sore throats and coughs and fights bacterial and fungal infections; cannot cure any virus but will help ease the symptoms and help if there's a secondary infection due to a virus!


For a summery lunch we enjoyed a...
Fresh Herbs & Nasturtium Salad

  • Nasturtium leaves & flowers
  • Fresh herbs - Basil, Parsley, Dill & Thyme
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Cucumber
    Dressed with a sweetish Apple Cider Vinegar and Mint dressing.

We're experiencing sudden changes in the temperature, so for a comforting meal on a chilly evening, we had a hearty...
Mung Bean Herbal Broth

  • Green Mung Beans
  • Onion
  • Carrots
  • Potato
  • Herbs - Nasturtium, Comfrey, Cilantro, Dill, Basil, Parsley
  • Fresh Garlic, Turmeric & Ginger
  • Chili
  • Pasta twirls
  • Leftover Salad - yep & that added a real zing to this broth!

    All veg, herbs & salad was placed in food processor.

    I added all ingredients to my Instant Pot, covered it in filtered water, added seasoning and in no time we had a delicious thick broth.

My super fit 79 year old aunt taught me how to make her secret brew called...
Nature's Medicinal Drink

  • Crushed Garlic & Ginger
  • Nasturtium leaves & flowers, diced
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Lemon, quartered & juice squeezed out
    20200322_141111.jpg
    Place all into a plunger tea pot (or any regular tea pot)
    20200322_142215.jpg
    Let it steep for about an hour, plunge and drink throughout the day when ill, or once a day as a maintenance dose.

Let us all pray that we win this war against Covid-19!

I would like to share the following breathtaking video with you all:

What a beautiful video! I totally agree! The way we live needs to change and the first step is slowing down. Truly, I lot to think about.

Also, everything in your post is incredibly impressive my Dear Lizelle! I love Nasturtium flowers, but I had no idea they were such an immune system booster. I never even used them in my recipes yet, because I have o way to get them. I will try to convince my daughter to plant some in her garden this year. Well, everything looks and sounds delicious and super healthy! 💚🌿💚

Thank you Lena I must apologize, somehow I had a repetition of some sections of my post, not sure how I managed that! I had a problem initially after posting to go back and edit, Steemit simply would not let me in for a good couple of hours!
I was also very impressed with that video! Have you read the beautiful poem by Father Richard Hendrick? It's a stunning message as well, been doing the rounds here.
