Want to Get your life back!!
If eating vegetables made you feel fantastic energized and shed those extra stubborn pounds easily would you be game enough to eat vegetables for one whole week?
Vegetarian Week is from the 24th -30th May! That week could be the beginning of a whole new you!
All vegetables contain high amounts of vitamins minerals and fibre, proteins (amino acids) and antioxidants.
The most precious component is chlorophyll which I call the blood of the plant. It takes up pure sunshine and traps it to give life and energy for growth and it’s only when you eat it and it is broken down that this energy is released.
Nature has provided us with a pharmacy of highly nourishing food, “whole foods, Vegetables are whole. They have not been interfered with, changed added to or taken away from so they are living and keep us alive. Dead foods don’t! Instead they rob the very life from your body.
Sunshine make you feel happy energized and gives you that feeling of being glad to be alive. But when the sun ‘don’t’ shine you feel deflated and unmotivated and for many of you especially in winter SAD is a common problem. .
The foods that provide the most sunshine (I call it liquid gold) are the green leaves as they carry the minerals magnesium iron, amino acids and antioxidants. Cruciferous vegetables like cabbage broccoli, radishes, kale and chard are incredibly powerful healing foods known for their strong anti inflammatory properties. Cabbage is rich in beta carotene, folic acid, vitamin c, gluthamine – an amino acid essential for great digestion.
Broccoli is a food full of calcium, selenium, potassium, and organic sodium plus the chlorophyll rich magnesium and iron. Try this recipe for a nutrient rich raw salad.

Just think of the strongest animals in the world, elephants, gorillas giraffes buffalo, and horses they eat vegetation a source of proteins and minerals abundant in plant form. They don’t get their nutrients by eating flesh from other animals!
