Foods That Cleanse The Body: Avocado

Foods That Cleanse The Body: Avocado

 

When you hear the word avocado, you may start day dreaming about smooth, silky, delicious guacamole. I know I sure do! But did you know that the avocado is a little nutritional hulk? Yes, the avocado might have a high fat content, but it contains powerful antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that the body reaps great benefits from.

 

The fat content of this little fruit is made up primarily of phytosterols, which are key in the body’s anti-inflammatory reaction. Another key portion of avocado fat composition is known as oleic acid. Oleic acid is thought to help the body absorb nutrients better in the digestive tract. Avocado fat is monounsaturated, reduces cholesterol, and reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease. So don’t let the high fat content scare you, its good for you!

 

Pair the unique fat composition of avocados, with their vitamin, mineral and antioxidant content and you will agree that this little fruit is a nutritional giant. Avocados are low in sugar, contain 4 grams of protein per serving and are rich in phytochemicals, that prevent various cancers. This delicious green nutrition giant is filled with vitamin C, B9, B6, B5, E, K, folate, and has more potassium than a banana.

 

The newest information that I am excited to learn about the avocado is that it naturally contains glutathione. Glutathione is to me, the antioxidant powerhouse! Adding glutathione to your daily diet eliminates toxins in the body, is anti-aging, and gives your body an immune-boost, and protects you against certain cancers! So eat fresh, unprocessed avocados with a source of vitamin C, like tomatoes, and you will increase your body’s absorption of glutathione. Sounds delicious to me!

Foods That Cleanse The Body: Green Tea

Foods That Cleanse The Body: Green Tea

 

Enjoying several daily cups of green tea, have great health benefits. Green tea is an antioxidant and has antiviral properties. Those important antioxidant properties are what green tea uses to protect your body against certain types of cancer, like colon, prostate and breast cancer. Drinking green tea daily with each meal, allows for daily detoxification as well as health and beauty improvements. The low levels of caffeine in green tea can give your brain that little boost it needs to perform well, without getting jittery. Not only can green tea help with brain function short term, it is thought to help protect against neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. Compounds found in green tea protect the brain neurons, reducing the risk of developing one of those diseases.

 

The antiviral properties of green tea are thought to protect your teeth against plaque, and bacteria, which can reduce cavities. Adding this protection along with the antioxidant powers of green tea, your heart gets an extra health boost as well. Cholesterol levels are reduced by liver detoxification, with daily intakes of green tea, thus lowering your risks for cardiovascular disease.

 

With all of these great health benefits, improving your health and beauty could be as easy as drinking a cup of green tea with each meal. Sounds delicious to me!

Foods that cleanse the body: Beets

Foods That Cleanse The Body: Beets

 

Beets are beneficial to your health for many reasons. Beets are an antioxidant vegetable which contains many nutrients that detoxify the liver, lower cholesterol, are anti-inflammatory, have anti-aging properties and are linked to reductions in certain cancers. The nutrients in beets are called betaine, betacyanin, betalains, betanin, iron, folate, fiber, iron and pectin. Pectin helps in the detoxification of the liver. It is a fiber in beets that actually cleans the toxins that have been removed. The body will then gets rid of those toxins by flushing them out. This detoxification process is what researchers link to the prevention of colon, liver, lung, skin cancers. Keeping the liver healthy is essential to everyone’s longevity. Beets get their red or yellow color from phytonutrients called betalains. These unique phytonutrients work to reduce inflammation in the body, thus providing cardiovascular relief.

 

The beetroot is most commonly thought of as the part to eat, however, the greens are said to be the healthiest part of the plant. These greens contain protein, vitamins A, C, B6, K, magnesium, folate, copper, zinc, fiber, iron, manganese and calcium. Beet greens can ward off osteoporosis from the calcium content, boost the immune system, and can play a key role in fighting Alzheimer’s Disease. So make sure the next time you have the opportunity to eat the whole plant, please do! Be aware that the beetroot is high in carbohydrates and sugar, but low in calories. The greens however are not high in sugar, and are low in calories too. So eat the beetroot in moderation and indulge in the greens. Here is a great salad that will allow you to enjoy the whole plant, and reap those health benefits!

 

Beet Salad with Walnuts and Goat Cheese

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lb. golden or red beets or a combination
    (about 6 medium), with greens attached
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more as needed
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 12 oz. mixed baby greens
  • 1 cup walnuts, lightly toasted
  • 12 oz. goat cheese (I prefer herbed)

 

Instructions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Wash beets and remove greens. Set greens aside. In a bowl, toss the beets with enough oil to coat evenly, and season with salt and pepper. Wrap the beets individually in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake until the beets are tender when pierced with a knife, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Remove from the oven. When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel them and cut them crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, salt and pepper until blended. Slowly whisk in the 1 cup olive oil.

In a bowl, combine the beets with 1/4 cup of the vinaigrette, season with salt and pepper, and refrigerate until ready to use.

Rough chop the beet greens previously set aside, to match the size of mixed greens. Then in a large bowl, toss the mixed baby greens and beet greens with salt, pepper and enough of the vinaigrette to coat lightly. Divide the greens among 8 salad plates. Sprinkle the walnuts and beets evenly over the salads, and drizzle with additional vinaigrette if needed. Crumble the goat cheese over the salads, and serve immediately.
