    Prior to leaving for our trip to Queensland earlier this year, we had quite a few people tell us that we had to stop by this little cafe in Coolangatta that Mick Fanning's mother, Liz, owned and operated called Fresh Garden Cafe. Seemed like a no-brainer to us! So we caught up with Liz and got the lowdown on how she acquired the shop and how it's "word-of-mouth" reputation has put the cafe on the global map. She was also gracious enough to share some of the places most popular post-surf power ups.

      Composting is an essential part of home food cultivation. Through composting, you can easily fuel plant growth and restore vitality to depleted soil in your garden. And while traditional composting methods may not suite everyone due to the size of your yard or amount of yard waste, we decided to show an alternative method, vermicomposting, using worms to help in the decomposition process of your kitchen waste. In this episode of Health Nuts, our friend Gregg Hayward shows that by building a simple bin and using Red Wiggler Worms, you can have a continuous flow of nutrient rich soil amendment all year round.

      • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Health Nuts

        In this episode of Health Nuts we learn how to cut down on producing waste, in order to reduce the amount of things going into the landfill. Each individual in the United States produces eight pounds of waste each day and with just five easy steps we can change this! Step 1: Get rid of all your trash cans. We place trashcans all over our house, so when we throw things away we don’t even think about it. Making trashcans less accessible will make us think about what we are throwing away before we carelessly dump it in a waste bin. Step 2: Go to the website of your local trash company. This will show you what you can and can not recycle. Some common recyclable products will include glass, tin, plastic, cardboard, and paper. Familiarizing yourself with these products is a great step in the right direction. Step 3: Now that you know what you can recycle, be mindful while shopping and buy recyclable products. If you are unsure whether a certain product is recyclable just look for three arrows forming a triangle and the number inside of it. This number will tell you what type of plastic the container/packaging is made of. Step 4: Start composting! Composting bins are not difficult to find and although this may be an extra hassle, it’s worth it. The majority of our trash comes from food and composting is the perfect way to reduce our waste going into the landfills. Step 5: Begin to reuse the things you buy or buy reused products. For instance, canning food is an excellent way to reuse the excess food you may buy. Also, going to thrift shops and buying reused clothes is a great idea. If there is anything you can take away from this episode it is to buy less, but buy the right things and to set a goal for yourself to produce zero waste. With these five steps and Steven Mandzik’s helpful advice you will surely be on your way! Host Steven Mandzik Producer Cyrus Sutton Camera/Edit James Campbell Music "Taste of Friends" David Ely

                Born in a Jewish family, Jordan Richter found skateboarding during a difficult childhood. After rising to fame in the skate world, he converted to Islam and stopped skating professionally during this introspective period. Now years later, he's attempting to regain his place in skating through practice and hustle. Jordan recently went on a 40 day straight fast where he drank nothing but straight water and a concoction of water, lemon, cayenne pepper and maple syrup when he was hungry to raise his awareness of his food intake. In this episode of Health Nuts, we look at the Master Cleanse and fasting as a whole as a way of giving your body a break from digesting processed foods. While we at Korduroy do not personally endorse the Master Cleanse due to its high sugar content and lack of nutrients, we feel that the lessons Jordan learned on his journey are ones that transcend the type of fast he chose and exemplify living a conscious life.

                  In this episode learn how to make your own fruit infused water. Fruit water is a refreshing and delicious way to chill out while cutting your sugar intake. Sugar is the drug of modern times. We consume 37 times more of it today than we did just over 100 years ago. When given a choice between sugar and cocaine, lab rats choose sugar. Its over consumption has been linked to cancer, osteoperosis, impaired eye sight, higher cholestrol and food allergies. Added sugar is found in nearly all processed foods and Americans consume the majority of it through soft drinks. Many people feel that fruit is health and in moderation it is but it's important to realize that modern fruit has been hybridized over the centuries and is now much higher in sugar than its recent ancestors. Recipe - adopted from http://www.theyummylife.com/Flavored_Water Ingredients - fruit -- 2 cups berries, citrus, melons, pineapple...most fruits will work (see recommended amounts in directions) - herbs -- a sprig of mint, basil, sage, rosemary, tarragon, thyme, or lavender - water (tap or filtered) - ice - 2 quart pitcher or jar with lid - muddler or wooden spoon General formula for whatever fruit/herb combo you desire. 1. If using herbs, add a sprig of fresh herbs to jar/pitcher; press and twist with muddler or handle of wooden spoon to bruise leaves and release flavor; don't pulverize the herbs into bits. 2. Add approx. 2 cups of fruit to jar/pitcher; press and twist with muddler or handle of wooden spoon, just enough to release some of the juices 3. Fill jar/pitcher with ice cubes. 4. Add water to top of jar/pitcher. 5. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Suggested flavor combinations: Pineapple Mint -- Add a sprig of mint to the jar (you can throw in the whole sprig; or, remove the leaves from the sprig, if you prefer to have the mint swimming around and distributing in the jar). Muddle the mint. Add 2 cups pineapple pieces, muddle, add ice & water. Watermelon Rosemary -- Add rosemary sprig to jar & muddle. Add 2 cups watermelon cubes; muddle, add ice and water.

                    In a world manically concerned with fighting germs we often forget the value bacteria in our lives. The truth is we are surrounded by bacteria at all times and there are more bacteria cells in our guts than cells in the rest of our bodies. The way to health is not to simply protect yourself from the bad bacteria but to fortify yourself with the good bacteria. While TV commercials may have you believe that these probiotics may only be found in yogurts on your supermarket shelves, a far more healthful and plentiful selection of probiotics can be cultivated by simply letting nature take its course on most of your fruits and vegetables. In this episode of Korduroy's Health Nuts learn how simple it is to preserve your food and restore your health in just a few basic steps. Specific Directions for Kimchi 1. Soak Vegetables 2.

                      Those who surf Blacks or a certain heavy Mexican beachbreak regularly know Gray Richards. Now in his 40's and having endured serious injuries, Gray maintains the strength and stamina to hunt down tubes with the best of them. In this episode of Health Nuts, we look at myofascial tissue which is a little talked about connective web beneath your skin surrounding your bones, muscles and organs. Most massage techniques specifically focus on muscles. They aim to loosen and relax muscles by applying pressure and gently manipulating them. Myofascial Release Massage takes it a bit further. Operating on the principle that you store stress and tension in your muscles and your connective tissue, myofascial release massage is done to unlock the discomfort of stiffness and pain through soft, sustained pressure using a variety of props. Massaging and releasing this stored energy in the tissue effects your strength, energy, metabolism and flexibility.
