THE POWER OF GREENS

THE POWER OF GREENS VITAMINS AND ESSENTIAL OILS PRESENT IN GREEN LEAVES ARE A POWERFUL MEDICINE FOR THE BODY

To start the day in the right way, try using a selection of fresh and healthy green vegetables to create delicious and nourishing concoctions. Drinking half a litre of cold-pressed green juice provides your body with immediate wellbeing and will enhance your vital energy. Many green vegetables contain strong diuretics that combine with the sour flavours and spices of other herbs to help you to deeply detox. These juices will also keep your PH balanced, as green food is highly alkaline, which translates to good health, a feeling of freshness and strength. Consuming the abundant minerals, vitamins and essential oils present in green leaves is a powerful medicine for the body. Dark-green leaves such as kale, lettuce, spinach, parsley and coriander can be mixed with other flavours such as celery, cucumber, fennel, lemon and ginger to create powerful therapeutic juices that can also help you to achieve more longevity. These juices can also help you to burn lots of fat – although this won’t happen if you don’t need to slim down. They are ideal for people with a sedentary lifestyle, helping to improve vitality and flexibility. Another important tip is to carry out detox programmes twice a year. During a detox, food is replaced by juices – along with a lot of water – for at least 10 consecutive days. The best times to do a detox are in the spring and the autumn, in order to give the digestive system a rest and to deep cleanse, while also hydrating and oxygenating the body. Eat healthy and enjoy!

WHEATGRASS: THE ‘ESPRESSO OF THE FUTURE’

Wheatgrass has a strong, sweet and penetrating flavour. It provides an immediate boost of energy, which is maintained for a long time without any ups and downs. Because of this – along with the fact that it’s a very tasty morning elixir – I love calling it the ‘espresso of the future’. I recommend you enjoy a small quantity (between 5ml and 20ml) of this wonderful drink every day. Wheat is a well-known cereal in the Western world, but throughout history it has suffered from a number of manipulations. Drinking wheatgrass juice is one of the simplest and most direct ways of consuming this ancient cereal, helping you to gain the maximum benefit from it. As soon as you sip wheatgrass juice, a bioactive process is kickstarted, as endless nutrients are absorbed and then moved to the cells, blood and brain in just a few minutes. The health benefits are truly amazing: wheatgrass has a high content of chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, as well as lots of protein, because it is an alive young germinate. Chlorophyll is the energy of the sun materialised in plants, and can increase the quality and quantity of your red blood cells, resulting in better oxygen transportation. For all of these reasons, the ‘espresso of the future’ is a must-have for improving your overall physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. My top health recommendation would be to substitute your usual morning beverage for a small shot of wheatgrass. Not only are the physical benefits impressive, but this routine can also help to strengthen your willpower and get you out of the habit of drinking caffeinated drinks. Transform and stimulate your energy in a healthy way!
