1! Green potion

Posted on

 

Hey, guys! I am so excited because this is my first post!

It’s a very important step for me, to listen to my intuition and start sharing with everybody my passion for healthy plant-based food. I will do my best to spark your interest and curiosity in trying new easy recipes. Hope you have fun and cook with love, because that is always the secret ingredient to a delicious meal!

I woke up craving a green potion! As I had some leftover kale in the fridge, I juiced it (in my slow juicer) with carrots, apple, parsley, ginger and lemon. The result is a boosting drink rich in fiber, antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, iron, chlorophyll and so much more. I don’t measure the ingredients for my juices because it is very easy to tell by the quantity you want to get.

Kale is a great detox food. It is filled with fiber and sulfur, both great for detoxifying the body and keeping the liver healthy. Per calorie, it has more iron than beef. Iron is essential for good health, such as the formation of hemoglobin and enzymes, transporting oxygen to various parts of the body, cell growth, proper liver function and more. Kale is filled with powerful antioxidants, such as carotenoids and flavonoids help protect against various cancers. Kale is a great anti-inflammatory food. One cup is filled with 10% of the recommended daily amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which help, fight against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders. This leafy green is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K. Vitamin A is great for improving vision, skin and helping to prevent lung and oral cavity cancers. Vitamin C is very helpful for the immune system, the metabolism and hydration. Per calorie, kale has more calcium than milk, which aids in preventing bone loss, preventing osteoporosis and maintaining a healthy metabolism. Eating a diet high in Vitamin K can help protect against various cancers. It is also necessary for a wide variety of bodily functions including normal bone health and blood clotting. Also increased levels of vitamin K can help people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Enjoy!

Love,
