Ripe Plantain

Of all the flavours in the Caribbean and other tropical places the plantain is the one food that is universally adored.

Around the world plantains are boiled, roasted or most commonly fried. Find a way to add one to the BBQ and you will not be disappointed. Fried sweet plantains are eaten on the side with dishes like stew peas and rice or ackee and saltfish.

The trick to making delicious fried plantain is to know which ones to choose. It’s all about how the skin looks; choose from firmer green plantain, to one with a sturdy yellowish tone, or go for one that looks more beaten up for a sweeter taste.

Plantain can be added to your diet as a replacement for the common potato. Not only are they far more delicious they are nutritionally more superior. They contain a richer source of fibre as well as vitamin A, C and B6, magnesium and potassium.

Snapper ( 2 )

Eating fish provides the body with essential vitamins and minerals.

Fish contains an oily substance called Omega-3. It is claimed that Omega-3 improves the circulation by clearing out the blood vessels.

The Omega-3 in fish, helps to keep the joints lubricated and prevent them swelling up. The swelling of the joints and the pain it causes could be made more bearable by eating plenty of fresh fish. This inflammatory condition, may lead to inflammation in other parts of the body. Inflammation of the lungs is a prime example. In the lungs, the inflammation manifests itself in a number of ways eg via chest pains, a lingering cough and shortness of breath.

Scientist have been looking to see if Omega-3 might lessen the symptoms of common depressions such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD disease) and post-natal depression.

Vitamin A or Retinol also found in fish, helps to keep the eyesight clear. Vision can become blurred in old age due to retina damage.

Eating fish regularly might reduce another common lung complaint - Childhood Asthma. Find new and exciting ways to tempt children to eat more fish and see if this improves the condition. Childhood asthma is difficult to manage and interferes with everyday life, play-times, sporting activities, school in general and the sleeping patterns for both the sufferer and those managing the condition.

It is OK to eat fish whilst pregnant. Eat tiny amounts of shellfish and other fish known to be contaminated by mercury eg trout. It is also best to avoid eating raw fish during pregnancy, as an added safety measure.

Many fascinating scientific discoveries are linked to eating fish. Scientists tell us that the brain, is mainly made up of a fatty substance known as Omega-3. Omega 3 is present in most fish. Other sources of Omega 3 are limited. Plant oils like flaxseed, soybean and canola oil are likely substitutions for vegans and vegetarians looking to get their Omega-3.

Keeping a healthy brain means that dementia, a deterioration of the brain, is less likely to happen. The foods eaten are only one factor in controlling this disease. The right foods, including fish, does play a significant role.

The Omega-3 in fish could improve the concentration skills of children. Some children think that they are allergic to fish, others claim that they do not like the taste or smell. In some cases this is true, in other cases it might be because they haven't been introduced to fish at a young enough age. Keep offering it up anyway. Children often change their habits.


Other nutrients in fish are : iodine (thyroid function), selenium (which could be a cancer fighting enzyme) zinc, potassium as well as Vitamin D.

Gungo Peas Tins 400g

I am not sure when it happened but nowadays it is rare to be served rice and peas cooked with gungo peas or pigeon peas as a they are also known. They are seasonal and come fresh in December. During the rest of the year they are available canned (like these) or frozen. They are sometimes available dried but they are so hard to come by. Most give up and turn to a different type of peas.

If like me, you only occasionally eat rice and pea the odd canned ingredient is fine. I prefer to go this route as the popular bean that tends to always get served with rice has an unusual effect on my digestive system. They cause me to bloat and often cause a pain. I used to blame it on the rice and so switched to brown rice. Nothing changed. Then I remembered when my grandmother used to eat rice and peas cooked with kidney beans she routinely left the red beans or peas on the side of her plate. When I asked her about this she told me that they needed to be soaked over night to remove the toxin called lectin. If you forgot to do this you could get around the problem by cooking them for longer or using a pressure cooker. She told me that both alternative methods were unsafe. I always check that they have been prepared properly or travel with a tin of gungo peas instead. After all they are more authentic and traditional in Jamaican cuisine.

Okra 143g

Okra also known by its nickname "ladies' fingers". has many health benefits. It is high in Vitamin C and is therefore, an antioxidant.

Okra, is unique in that although classed and used as a vegetable (it is actually a fruit due to the many seeds).

Okra it a good source of protein. Protein can be hard to get if you are following a restrictive diet.

Okra has a reputation of being slimy. The slime only appears if okra is over cooked. Add it near the end of the cooking process if adding it to meat or fish.

Better still cook it separately and serve it as a side dish. That way you won't offend anyone who has yet to convert to its taste. Some people love it, some people hate it. My advice is eat it anyway it is very good for you. A good source of fibre and protein. Contains Vitamin B, C and Vitamin K. Minerals including manganese, folic acid, magnesium. Helpful doses of phytochemicals that help to improve mental health, protect kidney and the liver and can dampen down allergic reactions that are common in the Springtime: asthma and hayfever.

Make okra chips by cooking okra for one or 2 minutes in a heated pan over a medium flame. If you use a good quality pan you won't even need any oil. Sprinkle with sea salt or pink Himalayan salt and serve immediately.

If you are diabetic, okra is a useful weapon in reducing insulin level. This can be done by adding sliced okra , raw to a bottle of water. Leave it in the fridge over night and drink the water during the following day.
