Going green has health benefits in addition to being good for the whole planet.
We have been studying about herbs and veges ever since I tried to die in late 2007',
The old adage that you are what you eat became painfully apparent after my stroke!
Ralph began to cut off everything we had eaten that had any taste. He pushed protein and greens. I resisted and sadly behaved like a five year old.
When my weight dropped below 105 pounds I began to compromise. Not a lot of compromise at first, but eventually we found diets that allowed me to have and prepare tasty green stuff! It can be done!
Using diet and exercise we have managed to beat type 2 diabetes and acute Pancreatis. It was not a fun journey, but I am healthier than I have been in a long time.
The photo is of the veges we found at the Durango Farmers Market yesterday.
The asparagus was part of last nights dinner and and had a much more pleasant texture and taste than canned does.
The kale and beets will be part of green drinks for the week, and they can be incorporated into salads too. Onions are always a fun addition to dishes and are anti fungal too.
So many of the green veges we seek out now have medicinal properties. Did you know that cucumbers are an aid in ridding you of excesses and help in fixing type 2 diabetes?
It is so much better to go green than to feel or look green!
