Adding healthy snacks to your diet can only lead to more health!
Today I had to go out again,, so I prepared all of my food in the morning, so it I could eat while I was cruzin' around. I made a shake of;
2 hand fulls of kale
a hand full of spinach
a scoop of Vegan Vitamin Powder
It really wasn't very good...but I try not to waste so I drank it...I put in way too much kale. Note to self- Too much kale makes the smoothie NOT smooth..I chewed my drink today...blah!
I did do something good though. I juiced with my wonderful Champion Juicer. That was a treat.
I juiced 2 liters of Cantelope juice,
2 liters of Apple juice.
*I did a combination of carrots, celery, and ginger root.
I had a snack of Raw Veggies;
I also had a small clump of green grapes..yumm. All crisp and sweet.
Benefits of Green grapes
Not only are grapes a good source of vitamins A and C, but you’ll also find vitamin B6 and folate in these fruits of the vine. And that’s not all. Minerals like potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, and selenium, as well as trace amounts of copper, manganese, and zinc are also present in grapes. What’s more, you’ll also get some fiber and protein from grapes.
While these vitamins and minerals are vital to your health, the truly spectacular health benefits are found in the other compounds contained in grapes. Recent research has been all abuzz over these newly discovered grape components.
Have you ever wondered how certain fruits and vegetables get such vibrant colors? The answer is flavonoids. Flavonoids are very powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants work to prevent and counteract the damage caused by free radicals. When it comes to antioxidants, flavonoids are your best bet.
The flavonoids are found abundantly in grapes, and are showing great promise when it comes to cardiovascular disease, cancer, age-associated disorders, and other illnesses and symptoms. In short, what do grapes have to do with your health? Everything.
Today I didn't drink enough water, and I am feeling achy all over. Sluggish inside. I am detoxing today it seems and my body needs a TLC day I guess. It didn't help that I was out. Along with the hyperbaric chamber I am doing an Infrared sauna session afterward.. which also draws toxins out of your cells........so today I am super toxifyed. Ouch! Toxins are running rampint through my system..ahhhhhhhhh!! lol Tomorrow I am going to get lots of rest and drink lots of water..so I can eliminate the toxins from my system.
I also got some Hemp Protien powder today, so I will be blogging on that soon.
Live Happy.. Live in Light...
