Real Food for Vitamins and Minerals

January 23, 2013

Hello,

I have created another video for you showing you how to make a great tasting fresh green juice that is very helpful in increasing bone strength and health in your body.

Weight Vest and Green Juice

I am using an electric juicer in the video but a hand-crank juicer will do just as well and only costs about $50- on Amazon so pretty much anyone can get started on juicing for health.

You can adapt the taste at first to make it naturally sweeter by using the less bitter greens like Romaine lettuce and pea greens. Then gradually increase the amount of chard, kale or collards because there is something in the bitterness which is extremely good for us. The Chinese medicine system says to eat bitter greens every day.

Next time I will tell you all the vitamins and minerals I take regularly. I don’t like to do that too often because I think we all have to find our own supplement needs. Following someone else’s list often doesn’t work at all well. But I suppose it might be a rough guideline. I’m also a bit susceptible to vitamin marketing and they seem to have some genius writers creating this stuff. My mother always said I had an S on my forehead 😉

So get yourself some greens and juice them up. It will put a spring in your step.

Take care,

Pam

Recipe for Green Soup

October 18, 2006 0 Comments

A customer asked me for the recipe for green soup that I mention on the Osteoporosis dvds so I’m going to start a recipe section in this blog. Although my recipes are not the exact kind.

The soup is really good for you, alkalizing, and rich in the magic of green growing stuff, and it tastes good to me. I have it almost every day, either with lunch or dinner. I make enough for 4 servings at once.

I go to the Farmer’s Market every week and buy greens. My favorites are spinach, parsley and kale. Then broccoli, zuchinni and cauliflower which is classified as a green even though it’s white.

So I put a big pot half-full of water on to boil, then I throw in a chopped onion, lots of garlic, a handful of each greens, some zuchinni, some broccoli and some cauliflower. You can add carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms or anything you like. Now the pot is full to the top.

Then I put in some spices – I use Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute, Maca powder, perhaps some curry powder for a change, salt and pepper. I bring it all to the boil with the lid on, then lower the heat a lot for about ten minutes until it’s all tender.

Then I put half of it at a time in the blender and liquify it.

That is about 4 servings of soup for me. I often make it creamier at the end by adding a coconut cream to the serving bowl. Or I add Bragg’s Liquid Aminos instead.

Somehow it tastes a little different each time but anyway I don’t get bored with it because I’ve trained myself to eat the same thing often. I think of food as nourishment not adventure. But  I am usually really happy with the flavor and comfort of the soup. I think it’s the color that puts people off but I’m used to it now.

Well, this is exciting! I will share some more of my recipes off and on and please do send me any that you would like to contribute.

Eat your greens this winter and stay healthy,
