Plenty of Water
Getting enough clean water and supplementing your nutrient intake with fresh vegetable juice results in giving your body a rest and a chance to catch-up with cleansing.
Migrate towards living off natural and fresh food sources. Though vegetable juice provides nutrients, eating salad-based meals is very beneficial. You get the fiber and roughage. Put a can of kidney beans on a salad for fiber, protein, and something more healthy and filling.
Cooking food above 116 degrees F is thought to destroy enzymes that help digestion and absorption. Cooking also reduces the nutritional value and "life force" of food.
Protein Rich Foods
Seeds and Nuts
You should be taking some seeds each day for the oils and the protein. Grind sesame seeds with flax in a coffee grinder.
Mix in some nutritional yeast and have lots of protein, b vitamins, and good fatty acids. A few tablespoons daily are adequate, and your fresh vegetable juice provides more nutrition to your body than any other natural food source.
Fresh vegetable juice contains protein - amounts will vary with vegetable selection.
Kidney Beans, Black Beans - Go well with salads and other natural food source meals and provide plenty of protein and fiber.
Soy Sources - There is a debate on how good soy-based protein is. Everything in moderation is good to remember. A variety will provide a wider range of amino acids and other nutrients. Everything in moderation and good variety provides complete protein.
Sea Weed Sources -
Spirulana, Chollera, Kelp to name a few. These are complete and potent proteins and should be part of your natural foods list. I stir the powdered form into a small amount of water and let my juicer top it off with fresh vegetable juice. Chase it with a tablespoon of evening primrose oil and your ground seeds.
Some Meat - At a restaurant, order a salmon dinner. It's good for you. More than anything, I'd say a little red meat now and then is fine. The objective here is to live off salad-based and natural foods primarily.
Try not to have too much bread. Mixed whole-grain bread is best, in moderation.
Nutritional yeast contains 18 amino acids (including the complete protein) and 15 minerals. It's good for stress reduction and is a B-complex vitamin. The B-complex vitamins help make nutritional yeast a valuable supplement, especially for vegetarians. It is one of the rare vegetarian sources of B12. One element in yeast is the trace mineral chromium. Chromium is necessary to regulate blood sugar, and is important for diabetics and people with a tendency toward low blood sugar.
Nutritional Yeast, not brewer's yeast. It is readily available, inexpensive, and easy to take.
Seeds And Nuts
Abundant source of Omega 3 fatty acids, important for strengthening the heart and arterial walls, lowering cholesterol, reducing high blood pressure, diminishing insulin requirement acuity, brain development, adrenal function, and sperm formulation. Flax Seed is the richest source of lignans, which have anti-tumor, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant effects.
An excellent fiber source high in phosphorous, iron, calcium, vitamin A, folic acid, niacin, and essential fatty acids.
Native to North America, the Sunflower was first grown and used by the American Indians. Sunflower seeds have an impressive nutrient profile, containing significant amounts of calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. Additionally, they are an excellent source of protein, B vitamins, carotenoids, and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Most notably, Sunflower Seeds are higher in dietary fiber than all other seeds and nuts.
High in protein, niacin, calcium, copper, iron, and magnesium - Sesame Seeds also contain unsaturated fat and dietary fiber.
Yogurt with active culture
Some yogurt manufacturers pasteurize their yogurt products, while others do not. Although pasteurization aims to kill harmful bacteria, it also reduces the beneficial lactic acid bacteria in the yogurt, substantially reducing its health benefits. Therefore, to fully enjoy the benefits of yogurt, look for those with "live active cultures" or "living yogurt cultures" on the label.
Yogurt is good for you because it contains iodine, calcium, phosphorous, vitamin B2, protein, B12, potassium, zinc, and pantothenic acid.
