I enjoyed a wonderful salad for lunch yesterday…
“Fattoush” - Cucumbers, Radishes, Sumac, Lemon Juice, Fresh Mint, Olive Oil and LOVE!:)
Eat as many greens as you possibly can!
I made up the above stated rule after reading a “blip” out of the THRIVE fitness book by Brendan Brazier!
Leafy vegetables are a rich source of chlorophyll, important in offsetting stress by alkalizing the body. Chlorophyll also cleanses and oxygenates the blood, making it an essential “modern world” food and a true performance enhancer. Having more oxygen available in the blood translates to better endurance and an overall reduction in fatigue. In their raw state, chlorophyll-containing plants possess an abundance of live enzymes that promote the quick rejuvenation of our cells. The consumption of chlorophyll-rich, leafy green vegetables combines with moderate exercise is the best way to create a biologically younger body.
Makes you think, huh? I am totally down with the “younger body” and better performance vibe! What about you readers???
RULE #2 & RULE #3
#2 Drink Chia and #3 Drink Rejuvelac DAILY!
I shared my last Chia recipe with you HERE. Last night I made another elixr that combines both Rule #2 and Rule #3!
CHIA – BANG!
2 cups Rejuvelac
1/2 cup Chia Gel
Directions: Place all ingredients in blender and drink!
In all of the research I read about the chia, many of the complaints were about the consistency and taste. TASTE / FLAVOR don’t matter IF you are taking this into your body for nutritional benefits. Luckily the seed is open to many many additions! It mixes pretty easily with just about EVERYTHING! I haven’t found anything it is bad with. I have even taken shots of it by itself. I must say say this – While it is not something that has flavor (bad or good), I am guessing it is the gel consistency that makes people not like it…drink it! Nutrition! NUTRITION! Nutrition!
As far as rejuvelac…I am still brewing this wonderful elixr. Definite difference with this one – It can be a bit difficult to get down the “hatch” so to speak. Not the flavor. NEVER the flavor. It actually tastes REALLY REFRESHING! It is usually the smell that can keep me at bay for about 15 minutes. Once I am drinking it, I usually just DOWN IT! I usually take in approximately 20oz a day. I would like to get to 32oz.
This wonderful sprout finds itself turning GREEN these days! Even the Chia has been sprouting in the kitchen! I love life and the definite presence it has in the VEG888 kitchen!
I was reviewing an Anne Wigmore book the other day and found this “blip” about REJUVELAC!
Rejuvelac – The Enzyme Drink
Rejuvelac is rich in proteins, carbohydrates, dextrines, phosphates, saccharines, lactobacilli, saccharamyces, aspergillus oryzae and they have the faculty of breaking down large molecules of glucose , starch, and glycogens. This is the reason rejuvelac is an aid to your digestion.
The natural lactic acid and fermentive enzymes which are produced during the fermentation process have a beneficial effect on the metabolism and a curative effect on disease.
Thanks for reading!
Love and Light!
