Inviting friends and loved ones for dinner? When you got table surrendered people you love the most and everyone on their unique diets and perhaps allergic journeys, there are few foods that you can no matter rely on.
Greens are one of the most potent and powerful foods on the planet. It may surprise you to know that romaine lettuce, is high in fibre, but has double the protein, ten times iron, and a hundred times more calcium. It’s like “baby food”, and why it’s easy to recommend everyone to eat it, when it comes down to allergies and biochemical processes.
Of course you can pick kale instead of romaine. The reason why Romaine works if you are cooking or hosting for people is the biochemical structure matching with human liver enzymes and bacteria living in your gut. Kale, broccoli, onion, beans… come down to gut bacteria.
If you asked me to recommend the one thing that would have the biggest impact on the health of your gut and skin, it would be To invest in cucumber, lettuce and parsley. Not to have dozen of greens and vegetables at once, or do what others like or choose, cause… the ethnicity, blood group, culture… and environment are shaping your bacteria, along with the water you drink.
If you want to feed the good bacteria, prevent inflammation, improve motility, get rid of parasites, eliminate yeast, shed of belly fat, flush out gallstones, banish your bloat, balance the pH, live without IBS, cut your risk of colon cancer in half, boost your energy, shed weight, and to glow from the inside out, then the very important thing you need to do is eat greens every greens weekly a certain amount. I am not daily believer, cause in reality it isn’t always possible. But a juice, nice compensation to unexpected lifestyle.
Choose from kale, spinach, chard, collards, parsley, turnip greens, mustard greens, dandelion greens, beet greens, arugula, broccoli, bok choy, and all kinds of lettuce. And remember there are a lot of ways to fix and eat them: steamed, sautéed, stir-fried, boiled, roasted, raw, in salads, in smoothies, or on their own.
