A guide to a healthier living. Eating Well.



A guide to a healthier living. Eating Well.

Dear readers and friends.

As I mentioned in my website introduction, to avoid pain in a more natural way and for healthier living.  It all starts in your plate. When you turn to healthy meal preparation habits, it is important that your dishes are loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and immune boosting ingredients. Your body needs all that to power itself.

‘What you put in your body creates who you are long-term’.

Solutions to feel good.

One way to achieve a healthier living lifestyle is to implement the following concept. Imagine that you are a very good and meticulous gardener.  Consider your entire gastrointestinal tract as your secret garden.

More and more serious scientific research is performed around the world.

In many publications, the intestine is now called our “second brain”.

This tells us how important is to maintain our gastrointestinal tract healthy. Eating regularly vegetables raw, lightly cooked or steamed with pure filtered water.

Five daily servings of seasonal organic fruits are very beneficial.

As, the good gardener that you are, you do not want to poison your secret garden.

As much as possible you need to eliminate toxins in your body. Using organic, non-GMO vegetables will be very good for you.

We must avoid the toxins, pollutants, insecticides, and drugs that affect our entire gastrointestinal system.

If you have to use antibiotics,

I know that some antibiotics are necessary to save a life, they surely help clean our gastrointestinal tract but can have side effects or could create a habit for your body, therefore, reducing their efficacy.

Best for you, after the antibiotic treatment you should be eating dietary supplement that contains live bacteria, those beneficial bacteria you will find in yogurt that has Lactobacillus Acidophilus.

These are probiotics and they are small organisms, that help maintains the natural balance in the intestines, by pairing with Prebiotic that helps feed Probiotic.

Unfortunately

Most of the people do not consume enough Prebiotic. This is why people have issues with indigestion, inflammation, lower immune function and it also raises the risk of various chronic diseases.

Best natural sources of prebiotics.

Raw chicory root, raw artichoke, raw dandelion greens, raw garlic, raw leeks. Raw or cooked onions, raw Jicama and many more. This list of vegetables offers dietary fiber, probiotics and have a long list of health benefits.

Because the health of our gut is closely tied to many other bodily functions, Prebiotics and Probiotics together are important for battling inflammation.
The Journal of nutritional review found that prebiotics enhances the absorption of minerals in the body. Including magnesium, possibly iron and calcium.

In summary, all of these are crucial for retaining strong bones. In one study, just 8 grams of prebiotics a day was shown to have a big effect on the uptake of calcium in the body.

The use of onions and fresh garlic in your food preparations like sauces, salads, and soups are very beneficial for you. Add raw garlic in tomato salad, lettuce. Eat dandelion green raw by chopping them up and adding to a salad or steam them lightly.

One thought on “A guide to a healthier living. Eating Well.

  1. Your recipe for asparagus in brine sounds like a fantastic burst for the taste buds & full of probiotics. Some recipes I’ve read urge burping the jar to allow fermented gas to escape.
