The importance of green juice
Green juices must occupy a special place in the diet of those who want to enjoy an iron health.
What does a green juice mean?
- Juices from various green leaves combined with apples,
- Juices from various kinds of sprouts and green leaves, combined with apple or other fruit juice,
- Juice from various kinds of leaves combined with roots, such as carrots, beets, etc.,
- Juice only from wheat grass or only from oat grass,
- Wheatgrass juice combined with lemon juice and apple juice,
- Variants can be innumerable.
In the warm seasons, the edible leaves can be planted in gardens, they can be found in the market, at farmers with organic products or they can be harvested from forests and spaces as little polluted as possible. We have a great diversity of edible leaves in Romania and in the post & # 8222What leaves are edible & # 8221, you will find a long list of some of the ideal leaves for green juices.
Both in the cold seasons and in summer, in green juices can be used shoots from various kinds of plants. Here I do not mean only wheat grass but generally sprouts such as sunflower, fenugreek, alfalfa, clover, broccoli, red cabbage, white cabbage, kale, etc. These seedlings can be grown from any vegetable seed or cereal in a dry, raw and untreated state and which grow in germs (only sprouted seeds) and shoots that are between 2-14 cm high. It is good to know that the shoots are 30 times stronger nutritionally than the mature plant, because everything is concentrated in a luggage preparing for the maturation of the plant. As the plant grows, it loses energy and disappears up to 70% of vitamins, minerals, and proteins that are initially complex and along the way become broken down into amino acids. In the book & # 8222Germs and Sprouts, Sources of Health and Energy & # 8221, which you can find in any bookstore in the country or large online bookstore, you will find instructions on how you can grow 15 kinds of sprouts yourself.
What beneficial elements do green juices contain?
The chlorophyll in the green leaves used in these juices is one of the substances full of life and rich in solar energy, which is ideal for maintaining a healthy body.
& # 8222Chlorophyll, the green pigment existing in plants is one of the strongest elements in nature. It is known for preventing various diseases, healing diabetes, hard to heal wounds, ulcers, etc. Studies show that chlorophyll present in the human body releases magnesium, the central element of chlorophyll and turns it into iron, which is the central element in hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the portion of the blood that carries oxygen to the body. In other words, chlorophyll can be converted to hemoglobin which increases the vital transport of oxygen in all parts of the body.
The body's ability to maintain an oxygen-rich space are very important for the following reasons. One of them is that it helps the body release as much carbon dioxide as possible, which reduces stress, generates more energy and power, and in addition creates an aerobic space. In a well-oxygenated aerobic space, diseases can never develop.
Minerals, if you look in a table with recommended mineral sources, you will see that leafy plants come first. It is not surprising that with the reduction of the portions of greens in our lives, the lack of minerals has become the cause of current diseases.
Chlorophyll has as its central content, magnesium which once ingested is transferred to the muscles. Magnesium is the mineral that is absolutely essential for both heart and respiratory health. In fact, magnesium is the mineral that relieves muscle cramps and helps us breathe efficiently.
Women and men often resort to iron supplements that only lead to headaches and constipation. This is because the body does not know what to do with this large amount of iron. By consuming green juice rich in magnesium and iron, both women and men will benefit from cleansing the blood without fear of toxicity, as in the case of synthetic supplements. In this way the body will fill its lack of minerals, and the excess will be eliminated without the person feeling.
Other benefits of trace minerals in green plants can be highlighted as follows. Potassium is important in digestive health, chromium helps regulate blood sugar and selenium helps metabolism. Calcium is what helps us have strong bones and beautiful hair. This is the most commonly used supplement, but the percentage absorbed is only a small particle compared to the amount and quality of calcium from green leaves.
Vegetable proteins. To the surprise of many, all 8 amino acids contain essential amino acids, and are especially rich in leucine, isoleucine and valine. [& # 8230] Especially by sprouting and growing sprouts, the size of a index finger, facilitates the transformation of simple proteins into complex proteins.
Enzymes. The richness of enzymes in green vegetables has the revolutionary ability to cleanse the blood, detoxify and help rehabilitate the body, improving the immune system. Plants contain both sources of antioxidants and digestive enzymes. In fact, the complex of enzymes found in green plants are identical to the complex made by the human body. This becomes vital when we realize that our body has a limited ability to make enzymes, and when they no longer exist, death occurs.
There is a great misunderstanding about enzymes. An easy way to understand is that food processing in the flame of the fire eliminates enzymes, while in the raw state, unprocessed food contains plenty of enzymes. All green vegetables contain a very high percentage of both digestive enzymes and antioxidant enzymes. Plants have these enzymes because they are protected from the strong direct action of the sun, including ultraviolet and radioactive rays.
Alkaline agents. Acid and alkalinity are measured on a pH scale of 0-14, 7 being neutral. The score above 7 is alkaline, which is below 7 is here. Certain parts of the body must be alkaline in order to have a healthy body. The most notable example is that the human body must have a pH of 7.4. If human blood does not have enough alkalinity taken from raw foods, then it will start to steal potentially alkaline from other parts of the body. Various parts of the body must be alkaline including blood, mouth, small intestine, and sometimes bladder.
The first thing he will borrow from will be his mouth. As I said above, the mouth must be alkaline. If the mouth becomes too acidic then certain common problems such as cavities, plaque, bleeding gums, periodontitis and bad breath occur. Green juice can eliminate these consequences. In fact, if you drink regular green juice, you will notice changes in the reduction of plaque, the strengthening of the gums, less bleeding gums and the elimination of cavities. By enjoying the positive effects of raw foods, we will have the power to eliminate foods that are not good for our health.
The small intestine must also be alkaline in order to help the glucose pass through the intestine. The benefits of the bowel sugar regulator are many, including potential weight loss, increased energy and high metabolism. Both hypoglycemics and diabetics benefit greatly after consuming green juice [source]. & # 8221

The best grilled vegetable recipes
From side dishes to main courses, vegetables are vital to the diet and excellent on the grill. Grilling vegetables is a convenient way to prepare them and a great way to give extra vegetables. The trick for grilling vegetables is not to overcook them and to season them lightly with a little oil and many wonderful flavors. Whether you start grilling with corn or tomatoes, the grill is the best way to cook all the vegetables. For small items, try wrapping them in foil with a little butter.
These veggie kebabs are so packed, they make a single meal. It mixes colors and will look as impressive as it tastes.
This is the general method of cooking corn on the cake. Remember not to remove the shells, they will stay moist and prevent the corn from burning. You may want to remove as much silk as possible before.
It doesn't take too much to make delicious sweet potatoes. The secret is to avoid boiling them. These slices of grilled sweet potatoes are prepared beautifully and quickly and most of the preparation can be done in advance.
These artichokes are much better grilled than steamed. You will really have a much more flavor from these vegetables by putting them on a real fire instead of hot water.
This is a great alternative to traditional sweet potato recipes and is very quick and easy to make. Be sure to cut the sweet potatoes into long french fries. This makes them cook quickly. If you fry a turkey, add them to the heated oil once the turkey is out of the way and you will get more flavor in these french fries.
If you take small pumpkins and cut them lengthwise, you will find that it is very easy to hurry. I suggest you sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese over them before serving.
An excellent partner for grilled fish, endives offer much more than a component of salad. With the right marinade and grilled to perfection, you won't have to think twice about adding this vegetable to your menu. Keep an eye on it while grilling to make sure it doesn't burn or overcrowd.
This is a method for smoking and cooking pumpkins to be used in anything, from soup, topping pasta or to making large smoked pumpkin pies. The best part is that these pumpkins can be smoked on any type of charcoal grill or smoker if you have one.
Save the oil for something else, as these sweet potatoes were fried on the grill. The only oil you need is about 1/4 cup to make them crispy. While grilling they are brushed with a salt and lime vinaigrette that adds all the flavor they need to be wonderful.
