Quick, simple and delicious smoothie recipes, healthy juices and nutritious meals for getting more superfoods in your daily diet.
Here are two simple and healthy ways to use bok choy in your meals. If you’ve never cooked with it before you’ll find it’s a great base for many recipes.
Best of all, bok choy is extremely good for you and, when made up like one of these easy Asian inspired recipes, very tasty as well.
One of the best tasting ways to get the health benefits of amla and papaya into your diet is to mix amla powder and antioxidant rich papaya into a delicious superfood smoothie.
I’ve been making up different variations on the recipe below to start off my day for quite a while now.
It’s been one of the best things I’ve ever done for my health and I’d really recommend trying it for yourself.
You’ll need a good blender for some of the ingredients ahead but it’s a great way to have some very healthy foods that are not always the easiest to eat, especially first thing in the morning.
Smoothies made with superfoods like avocado and kale make it easy to get concentrated nutrition into your family’s diet.
They can also be a great way to have highly nutritious greens, that don’t always lend themselves to simple recipes.
Using avocado in this recipe adds a creaminess, flavor and some wonderful nutritional properties.
Mixed with all the minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients in kale, along with banana and kiwi fruit, this makes for an incredibly energizing and very tasty green smoothie.
Here’s a great tasting avocado and shiitake mushroom omelette recipe, packed with nutrition for an extremely healthy breakfast to start your day with.
Avocado is full of beneficial nutrients and shiitakes are one of the healthiest mushrooms around with an amazing flavor.
Eggs are packed with easily digested protein, vitamin A, choline, folate, potassium, phosphorus, selenium and zinc.
They also fill you up really well and give you a much steadier, more consistent and longer lasting energy than sugary cereals or toast first thing in the morning.
There’s a lot of superfoods in this healthy avocado omelette and you might not have all of them, or want to exclude some based on personal taste.
That’s fine. I think of this as my ultimate superfood omelette recipe with everything, but feel free to experiment and make it your own.
Avocados are best ripened at home so you can use them just as they become soft. It can be risky to buy ones that you think are already ready at the store for two reasons.
Firstly, you don’t know how long it has been soft for. From my experience, there’s a fair chance it will be overripe and starting to go off in the middle.
Secondly, if a loose avocado has been sitting on the supermarket shelf for long enough to turn ripe it may have had a lot of fingers pressing into it and bruising the pulp.
There is a way to cook your pumpkin that will maintain the most nutritional value when you eat it. It’s also fairly quick and simple and makes for a better tasting pumpkin, whatever recipe you’re using it for.
Smaller pumpkins tend to be better eating than the larger jack-o’-lantern style. Pumpkin breeds such as Blue Hokkaido, Sugar Pie and the Cheese and Cinderella varieties are often recommended for their texture and flavor.
Parsley juice is a potent and concentrated version of all the nutrition in the herb, including a rich array of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, chlorophyll and volatile oils.
Some of the best known parsley juice benefits include kidney cleansing and liver detoxification. Ahead are 2 special recipes for using parsley as a natural kidney treatment and liver healer.
The first is a powerful parsley juice with a combination of natural ingredients for effective detox and cleansing.
The second is a great tasting parsley, cucumber and watermelon smoothie that is especially good for flushing your kidneys of toxins.
First, a couple of precautions before using the amounts of parsley recommended in these recipes.
Importantly, despite it’s many health benefits, parsley juice should not be used in large amounts by pregnant women or those taking blood thinning medication.
Intestinal parasites are a far more common problem than most people realize. They are also notoriously difficult to diagnose due to the wide variety of symptoms that can result from a parasitic infection.
Some, but by no means all of these symptoms can include bloating and excessive gas, frequent diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, extreme fatigue, an increasing number of allergies and poor general immunity combined with a lack of energy and regular sickness.
The seeds from papaya fruit have strong anthelmintic and antiamoebic properties. This means they kill intestinal worms and other parasitic organisms in your digestive system and using papaya seeds for parasites has proven to be very effective.
Here are two of my favorite papaya recipes to add a tropical touch to your meals. They are both great to have with a meat dish as they will really improve its digestion.
This is a very simple and healthy papaya salsa recipe with a sweet yet tangy taste. You could have it as a side serving or directly on top of grass-fed beef, organic chicken, fresh fish or even grilled mushrooms.
