Once upon a time there were three sisters. The three sisters worked well together and were very popular. They were helpful, thrived together, and sought after. These three sisters were even a big part of the Indians' culture.
Corn, pole or bush beans, and seminole pumpkins are the three sisters. They are called sisters because they complement each other in planting, growing, and harvesting. According to an article by Lisa Mase in the Edible Orlando magazine, "the beans provide nitrogen to fertilize the soil, corn provides stalks for the beans to climb and the leaves of the squash plants shade the ground which help retain moisture." These kinds of facts fascinate me. How did they figure these things out and implement them so well for so long?
Not only did the three sisters work well in planting and growing together, their harvest was beneficial for the body. Sweet corn is high in B vitamins which is good for mental clarity and stress reduction. (I'll take two please!) Further benefits are reducing inflammation and support of the mighty mitochondrials and carotenoids (good for vision, hearing, and skin). Beans are high in fiber (for proper elimination) and protein which is good to balance blood sugar and help out the intestines.
Let's not forget our third sister, the seminole pumpkin. She does what her other sisters do (anti-inflammatory, vitamin B and help out the intestines) and she is good for bone health and rheumatoid arthritis. Her bonus is that she is also high in vitamin C and her seeds have omega 3 fatty acids and plant protein.
So next time you feel stressful, swollen, stiff or just need some good vitamins look to our popular healthy sisters!
