Superfoods: Raw Soup Class. ‘Manna – The Ubuntu Living Show’

Welcome back to raw food prep class. Today, we’ve got another delicious recipe for you and we’re going to get into some of the liquid feasting, and what do I mean by that? I mean soups, making soups once again, soup making is one of those staple foods.

Everyone eats soup, everyone. Most people know how to make soup. Soup is normally just boiling vegetables in water until it just become soup. What we’re going to do today is make soup, probably faster than you’ve ever made before tastier than you’ve ever seen. Tasted. Well, when you make it yourself tastier than you would have ever tasted before and colorful, amazingly colorful, not losing all of that color in the cooking and we’re going to do that is with using our blender.

🙂 – >FUNFACT: Pumpkin seeds are a great addition to Soups!

Now, once again, I’m going to be using the power blender, but you can use a hand blender with this recipe or you can use a normal smoothie maker with this recipe it will work with that. You might just need to build a little bit longer. The recipe we’re going to be doing is a tomato and red pepper soup. So we’re going to be blending up tomatoes, red peppers and some other ingredients, and literally five minutes.

Your supers done on the table ready to be eaten soup normally as a half day to hold a affair with things slowly simmering and adding spices and getting the flavors right. Will this recipe it’s so easy, just tucking in a blender turning it on and having an awesome soup? So let’s get started you’ll notice. The first thing in the blender is that it’s got some water in it. Now this waters been warmed through slightly.

So that’s a boil: there’s just gotten a bit hot. That way we can have a hot soup and some of you were wondering or cold soups. None about that doesn’t have to be cold. You can have it warm by using hot water as your base. Okay, so we’ve got the hot water in there and now we’re going to get going with the tomatoes first and that’s some great big Tomatoes here start with 3, i’m going to pull off the little green, but that is actually poisonous.

If you have enough of that. Just chopping it into quarters is fine for the blender, so tomatoes are great to eat because they got a lot of something called lycopene in it. What happens with like a penis? It becomes more absorbable available when you’re blending it or you when you’re cooking it. As I’m not partial to cooking, I prefer blending it and using warm water does the same thing, but if you look at it tomato by cutting it open and certain segments of it as well, when you look at it, it’s just got the most beautiful water eNOS.

It’s great for for getting liquid into our systems for higher for making us hydrated, and it’s also particularly good for for the lungs and for the reproductive system with the seeds. Many benefits with tomatoes: okay to more urgently for tomatoes, are in next we go out red peppers. Now these are beautiful. Looking red peppers thing to remember with your red pepper, is that a green pepper is green because it’s not ripe, whereas a red pepper is a green pepper, that’s ripe! So it’s not there’s a different kind of pepper.

It’s just that the ones picked when it’s actually ripe and picking fruit when it’s ripe is much better for your health and picking fruit when it’s not ripe, because the fruit draws up all the nutrients at the end of its ripening period. So that’s when you’re getting most of the flavor developing as well. So it’s had a chance to ripen on the plant to absorb all those minerals in it that your body craves we’re going to chop that up into two squares to blend that through nicely as well.

This is another reason why, when you go to the shops, red peppers are more expensive than green peppers, because it’s quicker to grow something when you pick it not right to letting it grow all the way to being ripe. Okay, now he has an important question: what do you do with that? The seeds of the pepper you take it outside and you throw it in your garden and then it’s going to grow pepper plants, never waste anything out of your garden.

This is how many pepper plants does that maybe 30 or 40 red pepper plants that you can grow and, if you think of how much money that’s going to save you in the long run. Just from planting this, one pepper seeds phenomenal so really get into any of the fruit that you have, if you cut it open and their seeds in it, put it in your vegetable garden. True, okay, let’s do one more I like to add but more of this because it gives the super bit more of a texture to it.

It’s not so watery Tomatoes quite watery, so it does make the soup quite watery excellent, but the peppers in so tomatoes peppers. What else we got? Ah red, onions? Ok, so I use red onions. I prefer red onions to white onions because they’re red now the color in food indicates the antioxidants in the food antioxidants. Remember those things that stop us from rusting from the inside out and the more color it has the deeper the colors.

The more antioxidants are present, so the red onions got plenty of antioxidants in it. I’r just going to need about a quarter of a red onion for this amount of soup. Yeah quarter, rest of your red onion, keep and use that for another soup. Okay, now we’re going to get into some more flavoring aspects. We start off with basil. We’ve got a mixture of purple and green basil once again, purple color amazing, color too there’s so few foods are actually purple.

So if you can get hold of purple basil, excellent, excellent potent strong, smelling and tasting basil, so we’re given these or rinse we’re just going to pop all of that in their mothers or finish its go basil and bezels also incredibly easy herb to grow in your Garden, get a seedling, get some seed, get it growing. It really likes a lot of sunlight, so it’s normally only going to grow in the middle or towards the end of summer.

Okay. What else do we have for flavor? We have a little bit of rock salt, and this is Himalayan rock salt. It’s a type of salt. That’s been laid down, thousands, if not millions of years ago, and it’s a complete mineral salt like sea salt is so yeah. You could choose either sea salt or rock salt. I put a bit of that in this is very different salt to the salt that you get you buy, packets of iodized, table salt iodized table salt is not the same thing.

It’s gone through a process where a lot of the minerals are lost and a lot of toxic things are added to it. So make sure you getting a natural source of salt, either sea salt or rock salt is a thing to go through. Go for okay. What else have we got? Ah now we like to have our soup a little creamy, but I’m not going to use any animal cream in here. So i’m going to use nuts and I’ve got some cashew nuts raw cashew nuts and they’ll, give it a creaminess and slack more of a heaviness to the soup to make it more filling.

So I’m just going to put about a handful of cashews in there. Two more there we go. What else is on the table? We’ve got some olive oil, olive oil again bit of an oil eNOS and taste to you, soup for your soup. So just add in about a tablespoon to two tablespoons in there yeah that’ll. Do it that’ll sink through, and then we have all these ones? Let’s put these and go G berries. Now I talked about go geez all the time, because they’re amazing amazing, amazing food.

They have incredible nutritional values to them, so add them into whatever you can now. The reason I want to put them in the soup, firstly, is the color we’re trying to make a red soup red go G. Berries will make it an amazing red orange color. Second reason I want to add the goji berries is for its thickening properties. Go geez make the soup thick, so it acts as a natural thickness. You don’t have to use any other thickness yea once again, not a handful will be fine for that excellent got the goji zip.

Obviously the main thing the goat cheese are doing is upping the nutrient density of our soups and making it have more nutritional value for us and remember we eat for nutritional value. So you want to keep thinking I’m going to add the nutritional value of this meal. What else have I got our got a little bit of cayenne, pepper now, Kane pepper is a type of chili and I like to add chili pot, especially to the red soup color again, but also that spiciness goes very well with the red pepper and with the Tomato, if you don’t like spicy food, you don’t have to add it and Kane pepper is very spicy, so be careful that you don’t add too much in there.

Nothing i’m going to put in about half a teaspoon, I’m actually looking forward to a bit of spiciness. Today and in winter adding spices to your soup is an excellent way of making it warming to the body. So all our ingredients in you can see. I amazingly had layers other thing: you’ll notice is I’ve laded that the most water content foods are at the bottom. So that means that the tomato has got most water in its at the bottom and then goes.

I have to dry a dryer. That’s so that the blades, when they start spinning, have something to grab onto because if you throw the dry stuff in first it’ll, probably get stuck and then you’ll have to use the tamper to squash it or take it all out and put it back in. So this makes it blend a lot easier. Other things you could add are things like garlic. If you like garlic or any other herbs or aghanim is one that comes to mind, but you can play with flavors there.

But let’s get this blending and see what it looks like ready. You want to leave it blending, so you don’t hear, knocks and things because when it’s knocking the little bits are so solid bouncing around. We want a suit to be completely smooth, so you want to blend it until it’s looks and sounds like it’s completely smooth, so very much depends on what you’ve actually put in the blender okay. Now one of the most important things, obviously is the taste test.

Because have you put enough salt? Did you put in too much spice you’ve got to test all of the stuff and that you really can do only with your taste buds. So a teaspoon comes in handy for that wow. That is quite spicy, but I love it. It is excellent, so I’m going to pull that out into a bowl. You can see the amazing orange color in that. If you wanted a more red, you can add in more cane pepper or more goji, berries that’ll make it more red.

Now you have to garnish something properly and what I like the most is the sprouts that I’ve grown in the kitchen garden sprout errs. These are falfa amazing sprouts. Most people have had our felt at some point: grow them in your kitchen, garden, sprouter and then use a handful of that on top perfect. Now, you’ve got some living green sprout energy in your soup, and that’s it. We’ve made a tomato soup, it’s taken us maximum five minutes, it tastes amazing.

It looks amazing anyone’s going to be impressed and think that you’ve been slaving away at the stove for hours, but all you’ve done is just blended up a few things. So we’re going to tuck into that and enjoy that and try this at home see how it works out. If it’s not going smooth enough, maybe you need to likely steam your vegetables to get it soft enough. Maybe your blender can’t handle the the solidness, but just try it you’ll figure out a way to make it delicious now.

Why is this soup better than buying a soup or four shelf in a supermarket somewhere packaged one a ready made meal? Firstly, you’ve put your own love attention and energy into making it mom’s food always tastes better than any other food, and there’s a reason for that, because she loves to feed her children and in that way, when someone makes it themselves there’s always an energy of love And caring that comes through with that food and that can’t be matched with anything that you’re buying the shop.

Secondly, you’ve had control over the ingredients, so you know exactly what’s gone in there. You know you’ve put in good organic ingredients and you have not put in any poisons what poisons could be in there. Well, there could be preservatives that could be flavorants. It could be colorants. There could be all manner of poisons present in package soups that you got to be careful of. You have to read the ingredients and then you’ll learn about that.

What else yeah it’s as quick as may be pouring something in and mixing it through. Maybe a little bit longer, but certainly not as long as doing on a stove. So blending is much quicker for that and I suppose also you learning how to feed yourself as opposed to relying on a shop or someone else to do it for you, which is so important to do, knowing what to do for yourself to nourish yourself. Taking that time for yourself to actually honor your body, it’s the only body you have in this life and, if you’re expecting someone else to do it for you, it’s not going to happen.

You’re just going to get inferior grade low nutrient dense foods that are not going to give your body what it needs, which is that nutrient boost. The other thing, of course, is that the extreme processing that a lot of these things go in to go through to get onto the shelf means that it’s been very denatured. So any vitamins, minerals and nutrients, and certainly antioxidants, are probably not even there anymore by the time you end up eating it.

So, what’s the point of eating food, if it’s not actually giving your nutrition we eat for nutrition for nutrients, so you need to make your own to make sure you’re getting the nutrients in that’s enough reasons to start making your own soup and lastly, of course, is A taste amazing, so full flavor, you can add flavors to it. Okay, enough talking make your own okay excellent. Thank you! Sayonara, most of best soup ever yeah.

I think everyone’s going to want to try this come along. We’ve got some more balls back their legs. Oh around 70, a kilo. So if we’re using a hundred grams there’s a lot that normally picking back, I sell these little better. Oh yeah there were people of messenger Larry hands for, like twenty bucks, yeah grams of nuts father kept protein at all protein. Oh no! You want it now teaspoons, but hey. Thank you very yeah.

Oh you got Big Springs. No, I think, there’s no squeeze an asset makes it go long. Hmm, it’s not half an eater, you just hot water, right, hmm, hot soup! That’s man feels so light. It’s like eating light. Hmm, you are eating, like hmm, transform line, hmm lightly, sound mmm, but boiling water. You could you like to see popping on you, don’t have to use boiling water and the kettle has an anomaly. Point2 water does at 70 Celsius.

It doesn’t like going about 70 because that’s where the molecule stop being deranged, when your kettle will go to around it’ll, take most of the Sun would be around 78 I’ll quickly go to 70 and will stay there for about half the time. It’s boiling then, at the very end, for the last say ten seconds: they’ll shoot up 200. So you can stop it’s a 20 seconds before boils and it’ll be a 79 and 100 and your water wouldn’t have deranged and it’s not spoiling.

But my and that’ll burn your mouth 55 will, if you want it really 55 will burn your mouth and it changed their effect or anything. Well. How about people use it for killing germs and such what is it Jim? It’s just bacteria yeah heaviest organ in our body is bacteria right in kilogram of flora, more cells, more from nor organisms back to olin, isms and cells in our body, Oh seriously, something whose body is it it’s more than than they are of us, but I’m certainly There we asked who I’m that which is conscious or Burton someone’s overrun with them parasites and Candida, yeast and mold, which are also just bacteria, which most people are that stuff likes a certain brand of food as its energy, refined, carbs, refined, sugars and processed meat or Meat, so you think about consciousness of all those millions and millions of organisms and your consciousness from your cells, which is fast mall in proportion wise and how many units they are like people think well yeah.

I very well about eating this junk you’re right. It’s the yeast model, fungus, bacteria and parasites that are influencing consciousness to equal Bayless energy like even then. This morning I was hungry after I got super foods coming, I must have eat crap and I bought jungle. Oats pause – I was like sorry juggalos, but like it’s not very healthy, is it is sugar and stuff we’re turning um and, like other when I’ll come home.

There’s like a banana bread like there’s a mango there and there’s banana bread, and I’m like, I know which one’s good for me, but I got ta eat it. I’r feeding the because you who am I feeding bacteria Candida fungus, molds yeast. We have a visitor and because silos hello, I mean the corporation yeah, so she’ll check this outside god. That’s expect the nearest exit. Maybe I’m scared, maybe I’m scared, maybe I’m maybe I’m maybe I’m free and alone.

I maybe I’m scared me happy dreaming of a broken heart since the day we made happened, dreaming of a broken heart and I can’t forehead

That’s all I do that’s it now. This blog is all about attacking depression and anxiety from every possible angle. Seeing what works seeing? What doesn’t throw away the fluff and keep all the good stuff? That’s what this blog is all about. I’r not saying you’re going to eat these 10 foods and feel better right away and that’s put all your eggs in one basket. I’r just going to work on my diet, then that’s it! No, it’s not the way.

I have experienced depression, anxiety and managing symptoms. It’s more attacking memory of every angle, I’m going to try these different foods. Maybe a few, maybe one to see how I feel, but alongside that, I’m going to do some therapy and then how about some medication and then how about some exercise and then meditation on the side attack it from all angles. This isn’t the be-all-end-all okay. These foods are just to spark some ideas for you to do some more research and think about your diet.

That’s it alright! Top 10 foods, I’m encouraging you to try. 3. 2. 1. Go number 1 whole grains. Now, there’s already going to be debate in the comments. Scott whole grains isn’t that gluten gluten is bad for you, isn’t it if you’re celiac, yes like allergic to gluten, yes and there’s all these published books about how how gluten and wheat you know that book, the Wheat Belly about how wheat destroys your brain and eats Away at at your neurons and makes you gain weight well, yeah.

I could see gained weight, cuz, it’s full of carbs and if you don’t exercise yeah, it just turns into fat, but just just hold on okay, just hold on anything from porridge to brown, rice to rye, bread, the thing about whole grains: oh, they have vitamin b6. B12, now b12 s have been studied and proven it’s some degree to help with depression. Okay, so that’s one thing: n vitamin b9, the great thing about whole grains guys is they have a low glycemic index, meaning meaning, if you’re going to have bread in the morning.

It’s not going to spike your blood sugar levels like say a can of coke does, or glass of orange juice. Okay, the lower glycemic index means you’re going to feel fuller for longer and think of just energy trickling through your blood throughout the day. So you stay full and you have that energy to maintain brain function. What happens when you drink a glass of orange juice, which a glass of orange juice can be like? Seven oranges squeezed in there? That’s a shitload of sugar.

It doesn’t matter if it comes from orange and it’s going to rock it that blood sugar level you’re going to feel home. I got jolt and then you’re going to crash great thing about whole grains. Low glycemic index mean you get sustained energy throughout the day. It just trickles in your bloodstream. It’s a beautiful thing. Number two quinoa spelled ke en wuah. No, that’s not how it’s spelt at all, but it should right come on English.

Now the great thing about quinoa and soy is it’s the only vegetarian protein. That is all nine essential amino acids. It’s also very high in copper, manganese, magnesium and magnesium is actually proven to help migraine sufferers. I know it’s funny because my dad has suffered from migraines, since he was 20 years old and just over the Christmas break um, he had a terrible migraine where I’m downstairs.

I can hear him crying and he’s upstairs two floors up and he’s pounding on the ground and it lasted like 13 14 hours, throwing up the whole deal just completely debilitating now. Magnesium doesn’t help that he’s tried. Everything he’s tried everything if you have a migraine cure for my dad and he’s tried everything all types of different therapy and – and he uses a what’s – it called a breathing machine for sleep apnea because he has sleep apnea too um.

Any cures. Let me know number three almonds almonds: you know what sucks about almonds, they’re so expensive. Just like any now we’re going to talk about walnuts in a second and and you cashews, oh my god, I realize you can’t afford these things, but let’s talk about it anyways. So almonds have this magical brain ingredient called phenyl alanine. I could actually google the pronunciation there and it’s an amino acid and it helps the production of dopamine and dopamine.

Is that feel good um neurotransmitter, where you know you’re rewarded with something and it’s like? Ah, that feels good. That’s why, every time you get a text or a like on your Facebook, page, dopamine surge, if you like. Ah, then, you get that tent in your pants and you’re, like no just kidding. Almonds are also very high in vitamin E and also have been proven to reduce your cholesterol or the LDL bad cholesterol.

Number four is pecans, pecans and X. I know they’re all expensive. I’r sorry, I’m sorry. Excellent source of vitamin e actually has 19 vitamins and minerals, also a great source of choline, the chemical precursor to acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter proven to slow down neuron or neuro degeneration, pretty cool the more neurons, the better right as long as you’re. Creating those nice pathways of positivity and not overthinking bad things, and then you get bad pathways.

I don’t know what I’m talking about. Number five didn’t see this one coming: pumpkin seeds, pumpkin seeds, I don’t like pumpkin seeds, Halloween people take them out of the pumpkin and they roast them in the oven. I don’t I don’t think that’s great, so they put like salt or seasoning on them, but the benefits are they’re very high in zinc, pumpkin, seeds and zinc is said to be used in the hippocampus, which is there for long-term and short-term memory.

The more zinc in there, the better right, eat your pumpkin seeds. They also have a very high amount of omega-3 and Omega those fatty acids. You need those for the brain, the brains, all fat. You need fat in there, sunflower seeds. If you haven’t, eaten sunflower seeds before um, don’t just go for the ones that are taken out of their shells already and put a bunch in your mouth. No, you have to work for them.

Okay, you get a bag spits. I have I actually have spits I have spits hold on hold on. I have spits check this out, so these are cracked pepper. Some go with the salt, some go with the plain and you get you load a bunch in your cheek anyways suck on them and you really got work for a feed. Oh yeah, there’s one you’re bringing to the side. Let me chew that one and then you work on the cheek. It’s it’s an amazing thing: avocados mmm they are delicious.

I love putting them in salad. People do the the toast and then cream cheese and avocado, that’s disgusting, or am I getting that mixed up anyways? I just haven’t been like salads, you can eat them on their own. You can put them in a smoothie delicious, yes, expensive. Yes, they are expensive. Everything. That’s good, for you is expensive in the price of food, at least in Canada is increasing. Fresh food is increasing, fresh produce government, you got ta, do something you got ta farmers excellent job, keep doing what you’re doing but like you want to eat healthy, and it’s very hard to do so anyway.

So avocados very high in unsaturated fat, which increases blood flow, decreases blood pressure, great for hair health, skin health and actually wrote this down because I don’t know how to exactly pronounce this. But the Aztecs named the avocado tree. Aha doh a HUAC ATL, a hawk cattle, a ha cattle or in English testicle tree, and they named it that because avocados increase your libido, so the Aztecs were horny all the time.

If your libido is a little down, you have a have a quarter of an avocado. Let’s see what happens. Number eight eggs. I bet you didn’t see this one coming now for those vegans, I’m sorry, I am sorry and eggs are not essential. Just like all meat and animal products aren’t essential there, many healthy vegans out there eggs. You don’t got to do. Okay, fish, you don’t have to do. You just have to supplement and get get your omega-3s and protein and vitamins elsewhere.

Okay, but eggs, also high in choline, which we talked about tryptophan, which we also talked about, has everyb vitamin and and high in protein, and protein is essential for muscular growth and brain development, and we all know that and number nine green tea cannot stress this enough. If you don’t like the taste of green tea, you can learn to love it. You can. You can force yourself to eat foods and then, finally, like it, that’s what I did with olives, I hated olives.

I ate one a day for like three weeks now. I love olives. It’s interesting right. You can do that. Try with green tea, try what I do with green tea. Is I steep it for so long that it gets bitter, and I love that bitter taste and after I have a cup I actually am more thirsty. After drinking it than before, but I love green tea, the cool thing about green tea has antioxidants, called polyphenols would actually regulate your glucose levels and increase dopamine, and we talked about dopamine how that’s that reward neurotransmitter get a text.

Well, this time have a sip of green tea feel good, feel real good. Alright, try green tea! If you don’t like the taste at first, try putting it a bit of honey, put a bit of it, put a bit of honey in there and see how you like it number ten last but not least, dark chocolate. Can you believe it can you believe it now? I just let me read this here that I printed off again doing a bit of research, I’m doing research for all of you.

Thank you for supporting the blog. Thank you. The cocoa bean was referred by the Mayans and Aztecs as its scientific name. Theobroma cocoa means food of the gods. That’s amazing, very cool. Now this is interesting. There’s magnesium, a lot of magnesium and dark chocolate. 50 % of people in industrialized countries, meaning US and Canada, are magnesium deficient. I don’t know about that. Obviously depends on you drive, but 50 % of people magnesium deficient.

That’s a little. That’s a little hard to to believe that was really the only good thing about the dark chocolate other than it has those antioxidants as well and can also lower blood pressure with dark chocolate it just I don’t like milk chocolate anymore. It feels too waxy and sugary. I, like the high cocoa, like 78 80 %. Those were the 10 foods that I would recommend trying. Now again, I’m not a nutritionist doctor.

I don’t know a lot about this stuff. Maybe you have suggestions and research you want to share with me. Please comment below and and share some different foods that may have helped you maybe different supplements. I know we’re talking about Omega 3s and B vitamins and choline as a vitamin as well. You can take please. Let me know please like please share again the point of this blog. It’s sharing man sharing is caring.

It’s all about spreading the word of mental health, helping each other through tough times, helping us feel better, be more content with our lives. A lot of that’s psychology with the food, some of its diet and biology. That’s what it comes down to brain chemistry. Things like that!

Lyfe Nutrition | The Benefits of Superfoods

This is simply just my opinions, based on my research to benefit my life and my fitness today, we’re going to talk about superfoods. We all know that I’m going to help kick. We all know that I’m trying to lose weight and live a healthier life.

This will really help with the taste. I promise you so the last thing is you got to add water, don’t add any juice or anything like that. Stick to water, because we’re trying to make this sugar free.

Eating For Longevity: Health Boosting Staples of The Italian Diet

Now I know what you’re thinking, what about that pizza and pasta? Isn’t it loaded with lectins sure, but pizza and pasta aren’t the only things Italians eat? That’s like assuming all weed is cheeseburgers. The truth is, the Italian diet is actually made up of some of the healthiest things on the planet and today I want to walk you through just a few of those olives and olive oil.

You know how much I love olive oil. I’ve done a whole article on it. After all, it’s great for your heart, health, your brain, your immune system and even your weight. Now the Italians make some of the best olive oils on the planet and eat plenty of it too. Whenever I’m in Italy, I love the chance to sample the local olive oils, the range and flavors from the grassy and spicy buttery is amazing. How about wild caught seafood? Italy’s got water on three sides.

So it’s no surprise that seafood is a mainstay of the Italian diet and wild caught seafood, including fish shellfish, shrimp. Lobster mussels and even squid and octopus are incredible for your health and don’t forget anchovies and sardines thanks to their lean protein and, most importantly, their high omega-3 content. Shrimp even have an added bonus if you eat the shells, you’re consuming one of nature’s lectin blockers and don’t worry, the shells are completely edible.

They just add a little bit of texture to the mix. Now, how about leafy greens, it seems like there’s always a plate of dark polyphenol, rich leafy greens on the table in Italy, sometimes they’re raw drizzled in balsamic, vinegar and olive oil, sometimes they’re braised for hours and all oil and garlic until they’re, practically falling apart and Anyway, they make them they’re too delicious to resist, and since they play such a key role in your health and keeping those gut bugs happy, why resist at all? Now how about red wine? Let me be clear: I am not telling you to go crazy and drink.

A bottle of red wine every night and if you’re not a drinker, please don’t start on my account, but a small florida. Six ounce glass at night is actually pretty good for your health, thanks in part to a polyphenol called resveratrol and resveratrol is linked to a huge number of health benefits. It’s got anti-inflammatory properties, antiviral properties and it’s even connected to heart and brain health, so feel free to pour yourself a toast to good health.

But remember a four to six ounce is not a big pour. It looks something like this. The easy way to remember is that there’s six ounces, four of them in every bottle, so for six ounce servings we’ll make a bottle of wine. That’s not much! How about garlic and onions? When I read Italian recipes, they almost always seem to start with garlic, onions or a mixture of the both cooked in olive oil and that’s fantastic both when it comes to flavor and when it comes to your health.

You see. Garlic and onions are chock-full of polyphenols and they’re pretty high in sulfur too, and sulfur helps build strong muscles, keep your veins and arteries healthy and even help your skin look great now, along with these five staple ingredients, the Italian diet is also rich and a few Other foods that are incredible for your health nuts, especially hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios and pine nuts fresh herbs like basil, parsley and oregano pasture-raised eggs, actual pasture-raised eggs, the italian eggs have almost reddish yolks they’re, so rich, also important to note the foods that are missing from the Typical Italian diet, or that are often eaten an extreme moderation, I’m talking about things like meat, especially highly processed foods, meat.

That’s not pasture raised tons of dairy or any dairy with the casein a1 protein. You know. All in all, the Italian diet is a good prescription for health and a great way to make sure you’re eating delicious meals that satisfy you and your gut bugs I’m dr.

Revealed: 5 nutrition lies you’ve DEFINITELY heard

Those myths are lying to you in that first article. I shed light on things like eating fruits and whole grains overloading on protein and giving up fatty foods all popular nutrition myths that are dead wrong, and you had a lot of amazing feedback on that article, because my subscribers want to know the truth about health and Wellness, even if the truth is the opposite of what they know so today I put together another article to debunk more nutrition myths, but first I’ve got a question for you.

What health and wellness topics do you have questions about? This blog was created to help. You live a long, healthy life, so I want to know how to help you best so go ahead and leave a comment below to tell me what you want to learn more about then make sure to keep an eye on this blog to see when your question Is featured anyway back to these nutrition myths, starting with one that makes big money for food companies number one you need electrolytes after you, workout you’ve seen the commercials athletes running for miles than chugging, a neon blue electrolyte filled sports, drink or people at the gym drinking Coconut water for the electrolytes, of course, maybe you wanted to be like Mike in the 90s and picked your beverage accordingly.

Sure those drinks, tasted, pretty good and advertisers – have done a remarkable job, positioning them as essential to athletic performance. But the truth about those synthetic electrolyte drinks and even the more natural ones is this: you don’t need sports drinks to stay hydrated now, maybe you’ve noticed them giving you a boost of energy. Well, I’ve got news, that’s not the electrolytes! That’s the sugar! I’r serious! Those healthy sports drinks are loaded in sugar, not great for anyone who wants to feel their best seriously.

They just counteract the great workout you just had it’s so not worth it, but what? If you’re, really working out hard and sweating up a storm? Are you actually throwing your electrolytes out of balance? Well, maybe in fact some experts swear that you need to replenish electrolytes throughout your workout, but honestly that depends on how hard you’re working out and your diet and a number of other factors.

So if you’ve hit the gym hard start by rehydrating yourself, the old-fashioned way with good old water. Now, if you do find yourself feeling a little light-headed or loopy even after drinking water, you might need a little more of a boost and the best place to start with is sodium chloride. That’s right! Iodized table salt mix a little bit of salt into your water or just eat a hard-boiled egg with salt you’ll feel better fast and you won’t cancel out your workout with a water bottle full of sugar either and yes up above I mentioned a hard-boiled egg.

As a great post-workout fuel, which brings me to nutrition, myth number two number two myth: egg yolks are bad for you. I know I know the classic weight loss. Breakfast is an egg white omelet. It’s true egg. Whites are high in protein and low in calories. Well, egg yolks have a bad reputation thanks to the cholesterol content of the yolks. The truth about eggs is this: eating food with high cholesterol will not give you high cholesterol and, if you’re, someone who throws out the egg yolk and just eat the white you’re, throwing out the healthiest part of the egg.

In fact, the ball, the nutrients in eggs, are found in the yolks, including vitamins, minerals and the healthy Omega fats that keep you vibrant. As you age, in fact, I suggest making your omelets with more yolks than whites. Not only will your breakfast be more delicious in my opinion, but there’ll be more nutrient rich. Now, speaking of breakfast, let’s talk about myth. Number three breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Now, I’m not going to tell you to skip breakfast every day because breakfast is delicious, but the truth in the matter is, you can skip breakfast and live a healthy long life. In fact, the healthiest people do skip their morning, meals pretty regularly, and you know what they’re fine, because the time you eat doesn’t matter at least not as much as what you eat so for best results. I suggest eating breakfast somedays and skipping at other times.

In fact, that’s the basic premise behind intermittent fasting, which keeps your body on its toes and may even support weight, loss and longevity, so look into intermittent fasting and don’t feel pressured to eat a big meal for any meal. First thing in the morning now, one of the hottest topics in nutrition is actually one of my favorite things to talk about and eat carbs, which brings me to myth number four.

You should eat as few carbs as possible. Now I’ve done a full article. Talking about this, but it’s too important to ignore, so it’s worth mentioning again, there’s no such thing as a no carb diet, at least not a well-balanced one. In fact, some of the most nutritious foods on the planet, including those leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables, contain carbs. Not to mention polyphenol recruit resistant starches like sweet potatoes and just about anything that isn’t pure fat, so unless you’re, somehow getting away with just drinking olive oil and not eating any solid food, you’re eating carbs and you should be carbs – are great for your health.

Provided you pick the right ones, sure you shouldn’t be eating cake, candy or tons of bread, but don’t be afraid of veggies in season fruits or things like sorghum and millet. They’re, delicious and they’ll support your health rather than destroying it. Now, before I go, there’s one last health myth: I’ve got the bus because it’s one of my all-time favorite drinks. Coffee, that’s why I need to put this one to rest once and for all myth.

Number five coffee is bad for your health. Honestly that couldn’t be further from the truth. Coffee is fantastic for your health. It’s incredibly rich in polyphenols to support your health and studies have shown that coffee is great for everything from focus and energy. Obviously, to blood sugar regulation is keeping you sharp as you age. It’s a superfood, not a junk food, so why does coffee have such a bad reputation? Well, if you’ve ever looked at the nutrition labels on one of those blended drinks at the coffee shop, you may already know the answer.

It’s not the coffee, it’s the stuff! We add to it think, a one dairy, artificial, flavoring and tons of sugar I’m serious. Some of these coffee shop drinks have as much sugar as a piece of pie or a scoop of ice cream, and people are drinking one too, even three of them a day. Not great right so go ahead, drink that coffee, just drink it black or look for healthy ways to spice it up like unsweetened, coconut milk, a little Stevie or cinnamon or some fresh spices.

And if you want to catch me, busting, even more health myths check out some of the other articles right here on this blog or leave a comment me a question because I’m dr. Gundry and I’m always looking out for you

Superfood Fudge

Three pieces left, that’s an emergency, so we have to make some more. What does it consist of? Well six ingredients. I believe. First, you have the coconut oil that we use right there, real good stuff. I’r going to take this already scoop. Some out have a frying pan. Here, I’m going to go! Stick this on the stove. You don’t have to look this way I’ll! Just stick it here to about medium heat.

You just want it to this one: it’s a liquify! You don’t want it getting hot! You want to bring it to a really high temperature, because it’ll hurt the lot of nutritional benefits in these other things. We’re going to use another thing we use is pure vanilla extract. Okay. This is a brand that we like and works pretty good. Then you need peanut butter, which is not mild. Salsa, like I showed in the other thing there we make our own peanut butter, just got done, making some here with our Vitamix blender.

It’s an older Vitamix blender. These are really expensive brand new, but you can find them on eBay, for you know 200 dollars or less many times and a lot of money. But again you can make your own food with it. It’s really good to have around. Why? Wouldn’t you want to buy store-bought peanut butter, well hydrogenated oils in the peanut butter a lot of times they’re made with genetic engineering the peanuts and things they’ll have natural, flavors they’ll put high-fructose corn syrup in it.

They put a lot of junk in the you know. In the peanut butter at the store with this, all you got to do. Is you just basically get a thing of peanuts, make sure it doesn’t say partially approves with genetic engineering or whatever else on it with the ingredients, but you just get some regular peanuts. These are slightly salted, the sea, salt, so not a big deal, salted or unsalted pour them in your Vitamix blender blend it up and we always like to blend it kind of into a smooth consistency right there.

You can see like that, and what you need, then, is you need a cup of this, so we’ll get back that here in just a minute. I’ll show you these other ingredients, keep an eye on my coconut oil over there. The other thing that you need is some raw honey. Okay, now I haven’t really discussed a whole lot about the raw honey thing and the benefits of raw honey. It needs to be local to your area. Okay, I’m not going to ship this to somebody in Texas.

Why well because the bees will pollinate flowers in your area and it will actually give you kind of an immunity to allergies to the pollen and things in the springtime. I heard that a couple years back, it was about two years ago. Actually, three years ago, three Springs ago that would be – and I was having terrible allergy problems – could not work outside. It was just sounds of sneezing nose, running and my eyes were just itching so bad.

It was really really really bad outside. I heard a thing about raw honey can actually help with allergies, and so I started taking some and my allergies. Pretty much went away, it’s amazing, but it was local raw, honey, very important. The next year, which had been this past spring. I started having some allergy problems again. I thought raw honey started, taking some same thing so, two years in a row, I proved it.

It definitely does work, but this is very another. This is kind of sweetener within the superfood fudge, really really good stuff. There’s when I say superfood, another thing that I need to clarify hair is, when I say a superfood, I think it’s ten categories. It has to be really good in, in other words, very high in magnesium, vitamin C or potassium or whatever um kale. A lot of people say: kale is a superfood.

Kale is not a superfood, God didn’t create. Kale kale is a genetic hybrid, alright created by man. Kale is not a superfood. Alright, mostly you will have superfoods coming from the tropics or from very very cold northern environments. The plants will get, you know a lot of energy from both. In other words, they will get very they’ll, be very, very strong in a northern environment. Cuz have to survive this big winter or they’ll get a lot of sunlight and a lot of rain.

You know like a greenhouse condition in the tropical environment, which brings me to the next. Essentially, this isn’t really tropical, but because Peru is not really tropical per se up or the East grow in the mountains really high altitude, but maca root again. Another organic superfood. Just off the charts with all the different nutrients in it and everything else again, I was really skeptical about some of the stuff years ago.

I heard about this thing of superfoods I just kind of and whatever it will. You will feel the difference when you start to incorporate super foods into your diet. It’s it will hit on so many different levels. Again, a lot of people make the mistake of with natural health they’ll hear that echinacea will help to boost your immune system. So if you get a cold take some echinacea, so they get a cold and they go and get a Nick and hu pill and they think this is going to help me.

You know it’s an herbal thing and I can just take an echinacea pill. Then they say: oh, it didn’t really work. What you need to do. The way you fight disease is to prevent disease from in the first place. You don’t need a bunch of junk food and then say give me a cure when I get sick. No, no! It’s about prevention, and how do you prevent things? Well, remember a very simple little saying you are what you eat.

Okay, there was another guy said the one time you know: let food be your medicine, alright, um you just stay in good nutrition. You have good nutrition in your life, you’re not going to get sick, and if you do get sick, it’s going to be about 24 hours and you’re going to be done with it. I can. I can tell you I used to get sick for weeks. At a time with a flu or cold or whatever else, and if I had a fever, it be days on end or whatever else.

Now, it’s extremely rare for me to ever be sick for more than 24 hours, usually it’s less than 12 hours. They don’t get something and and what I do when I get sick I’ll, just start eating all kinds of superfoods and whatever else and it’ll usually defeat whatever I’m dealing with, but this is yellow maca root I’ll be right back. Let me just check my coconut oil yeah do not want to let it get hot because, like I said it can kill some of the nutrition and other things there.

But there you go. There’s your liquefied coconut oil we’ll get back to that in just a minute. I’ll show you some other types of maca root really quickly. We have there’s basically three different types you have yellow, which we showed earlier. There’s your yellow. You have red maca root and then you also have black maca root. Okay, these three right here we have an opening yet because we’re trying to get rid of the trying to use up get rid of a but trying to use up the yellow that we have here and so, but there there’s so much with what superfoods again.

I could probably going to bring out another study, but another really really amazing. Superfood is this right here. This is the basis for chocolate raw cacao. Okay, this is organic cacao. We go through a lot of it, so we got a big bag. That’s not cheap stuff. Okay, again, we’re not talking about the cheapest way to make a meal here, we’re talking about healthy eating and healthy living stuff that will actually change your health that will actually make you feel really really good and not just oh, that was a nice meal.

It tasted nice, oh you got to get by the thing of I mean the taste natural healthy eating is extremely flavorful, very, very, very good. It’s not old if it tastes bad, it has to be good for you. That is nonsense. Okay, um rabbit trailing here. A little bit, but it’s important for me to say this: the reason that commercial foods with a lot of preservatives in them the reason they taste good, is because of excitotoxin that they put in there aspartame natural flavors, high fructose corn syrup.

It’s deceiving your mind into thinking that they taste good and when you eat natural food for years, if you back and try to eat that stuff, it will taste like chemicals to you. Okay, I cannot. I cannot drink soda pop. I cannot eat junk food anymore. It just tastes like toxic chemicals to me and believe me, for over thirty years I lived on that junk food. Okay, I really wrecked my health, important distinction.

This is racquel. This is, it says, 100 % cacao. I don’t trust this, it’s probably genetically engineered. Whatever else. Don’t don’t buy this thinking? Oh wow, I got your cow. It’s not the same thing right very important to understand that, but one of the big things that cacao will do for you is it’s it’s the highest source of magnesium in the world. So if you have joint pain, if you have muscle pain whatever else, this will pretty much take it away.

This is also very good on headaches as well. I might have an inflammation and inflammation yeah a couple times. I’ve actually been starting to get a headache, and I start to take some of the fudge here and the headaches gone. Okay and again it’s a process. Natural health is a process. The first time I started trying natural health. It wasn’t just boom my body’s back to healthy, whatever it takes a little while and till the most powerful super foods on magnesium that you can, you know, take together and it’s tremendous cacao and choc arute, both extremely high in magnesium, both really pair up together, cacao, Tea with superfood fudge is extremely good together.

Let me tell you so without any further ado: let’s get to the recipe, let’s start out here, I’ll have to get another spin right. First of all, you want to have four heaping tablespoons of cacao powder there. We have one just want to put the glass bowl or, like that’s a mixing or measuring cup kind of a thing there, one two three and four: this is not a if you haven’t noticed. This is not a extremely exact science.

If you get just a little bit, you know a quarter, teaspoon too much, then you’re going to blow something up or whatever else. It’s not a big deal, and then what I do is I do about a tablespoon mockery as well. Maca root is also really good for women, the balancing hormones and things like that really good stuff, and this gives it kind of a little bit of a hazelnut type of flavor, so the two of them really good to mix together so that what we do you Want a teaspoon of vanilla so for a teaspoon of vanilla extract in okay.

Now we need four tablespoons of raw honey. Okay, there’s one to three and one more just kind of let it drain off a little bit there and for there you have it. Okay, take your finger and just kind of clean it off there. I’r hands are clean. I washed them last week, so they’re still clean, I’m just kidding. That’s a joke. There probably be an exposed article coming out now, hmm, but you never know alright.

Okay, now we’re going to actually you know what I’ll do the peanut butter first try to get this stuff out of here and of course, the you know, a lot of people say we make peanut butter and then you got to add maple syrup and you got To add whatever else to try and make it taste good or whatever they you know just you know, learn to eat things, just as they are you’ll appreciate it more. You got it.

You got to retrain your taste buds when you first get off of all the sugar junk and you know you’re you’re, basically, a drug addict. If you’re used to a lot of white sugar and again you know, I’m speaking from experience here and they’re still. You know temptations come up in things to eat, junk food and whatever, and – and thankfully I don’t give in to those – because I know every time I have in the past – I always end up getting sick or you get the sugar high and then the sugar low And and your insulin levels of crashing – and you know it just this – doesn’t – doesn’t pay to mess with sugar.

So now we’re going to fill the rest of this. You can see how runny it is when it’s blended, really fine like that. Okay, there we go all right, get all this stuff out of here, see they’re, just scrape it all out with a spatula, and we eat this stuff a lot, because it’s got quite a few superfoods in it and incredibly good for you, and you really just feel Good after you’re done eating it, it’s not the same thing as a store-bought candy or anything like that.

Now. What we need to do is we need to pour 1 cup of coconut oil into here. Hopefully I made enough. Sometimes I don’t looks like about perfect Wow. Great job good praise, Lord yep, for the coconut oil in there, like I said you don’t want to make it too hot or anything and scrape it in there. Okay, now we take if you have a pie pan or whatever else or an old cake pan. We have this heart-shaped cake, pan cake pan.

So what we’ll do here is we’ll stir. It stir this up real good, so it’s all mixed together. Then we come in here and look in there and see how it’s cane stirred again, you don’t need an electric mixer in a blender and all that other junk. You know I mean, if you put it in the Vitamix. Well, it’s just going to make it more stuff to clean up. It actually started together pretty quickly this dirt. Will you don’t have any limbs or anything get a little bit of exercise here, even justify eating a few more pieces of fudge? Great? Actually, it’s not bad! For you, so you can eat a couple pieces.

Just don’t do like our son did the first time he tried that he had eight pieces and ended up, throwing up a little bit later. Do all things in moderation. Okay, there you go it’s about what you want right there, but no it isn’t never mind is either lumps that’s about what you want all those big cliffs, Amaka or uh cacao. No, it’s not. I had it. It’s character, make sure you get on the bottom and everything move around on the sides.

You know it’s not really a big deal if you do get some clumps in there, because you know you’re just going to be in any ways, but the Cal does not taste like chocolate by the way it has a slight chocolaty flavor, but it’s kind of bitter. So but if you add some all hunting to it and coconut oil and vanilla extract and peanut butter and everything tastes real good, so there we go. That should do it for that.

I’ll just put this over here later on, find a volunteer to lick that off government grant. First, probably you should okay. Now what you can do is what we like to do is if you kind of like some peanuts in it, which I showed you you know see. If I can show one here, you can see the peanuts in it there in that piece of fudge. Okay, I’ll eat that one later, if that’s what you want, then what you do excuse me: you pour some peanuts in right into the fudge as many as you want there you go, you can also put some almonds in it.

We have some almonds up there. Another thing which we’ve tried is here’s some raisins, okay kind of give you the chocolate-covered raisin taste, not bad, it’s. Okay. Another thing is dried cranberries. I, like dried cranberries in the fudge certain somebody doesn’t care for it as much, but stop picking on me terrible, but dried cranberries and my opinion are pretty good and the thing another option might be.

These are called golden berries. Okay, golden berries are another superfood they’re, not one of the highest ranked superfoods or whatever, but they’re some really good stuff in their tropical type of berry. Douji berries would be another option, that’s another, her food. The whole point is here to get as many super foods into your diet, even something that you would consider a dessert. You want to get super foods into your diet on a regular basis, because it’s going to give you nutrition on so many different levels and it’s going to boost your immune system and it’s going to help you out a lot of stuff again.

Another point I need to make is that I believe that the body is self-healing itself, regenerating. Okay, God designed us, the Bible says we were fearfully and wonderfully made, and I believe that there are things out in nature that can actually regenerate damage that you’ve done to your body. Again, I was in really poor shape. In my you know: teens 20s 30s. Really poor shape because of just being raised on on sugar and um.

You know my lower back went to a chiropractor at one time he told me. My discs in my lower back were degenerating, a terrible back pain and there’s a lot of different reasons. For that not going to get into it, but just from you know, longing primarily lifting heavy things and whatever else and I used to have you know I just I couldn’t stand up for very long, because it was just such bad back pain and one of the Big things I did is introduced magnesium into my diet and I very little pain anymore, so just try to get as many superfoods in your and your body into your system as possible.

It’ll really help you alright, so now just pour it right in there. I know it’s tempting to say just skip the freezer part and we’ll just go right to just take a bowl and pour some in and eat it with a spoon. But you know patients, it’s worth it yeah all right, just use your spatula to get as much of that out of there. As you can again, you might have to find a volunteer putting that in the paper or something for somebody that’d be willing to lick this stuff off.

I won’t say any names here, but and then what you do is my secret terrible. What you want to do, then, is I’ll. Stick it the freezer. It’s nice level area right there we go and let it go for two or three hours and it’ll be done. So we’ll see you back a little bit and for this is frozen. Okay, it’s been a few hours. The superfood fudge should be done, it’s let’s check in the freezer and grab it got it, and here we have it.

Look this way that pretty cold, but there you can see it on the frozen nicely. Then you can cut it into pieces or you can actually, if you have a cake pan like this, you can actually just pop the whole thing out like this see how easy it comes out. I’r just kidding you like that and you can go and turn your computer on and read some King James article ministries, sermons and just spend the whole night just eating chocolate.

Probably not, I don’t think that’d be considered moderation, so it might get a little messy on the computer too yeah. You know. After a while, it would start to kind of warm up a little bit you’d kind of get a little bit messy. So but there you have it, there’s your superfood fudge real healthy for you not very difficult to make, and I really highly recommend it. That’s going to be it. Thank you for reading you

Superfoods: How to grow your own Micro-Greens. ‘Manna – The Ubuntu Living Show’

I can’t emphasize the beginning of us enough on how important it is for you to get into growing your own stuff, and one of the most amazingly simple and powerfully nutritious things you can grow is sunflower greens.

So what I’m going to do is I’m going to just within a few minutes. Give you the whole process by showing you exactly how easy it is to grow sunflower greens in your own garden in your own home. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can do this on a windowsill in your house, so you don’t have to have a garden to grow your own food either. Sunflower greens are one of the most nutritious microgreens you can have now.

A sprout is a little seed, that’s just sprouted, but a micro green is a sprout. That’s allowed to grow in soil for a couple of days. So what I’m going to show you today is how to quickly and easily set up a tray to grow. Sunflower greens for you now these are the sunflower greens on the table here, and the thing about them is they’re around 30 times more nutritious than normal salad, and you can have one bowl of salad or you can have a tiny ball of sunflower greens and those Sunflower greens are going to give you the same if not more nutrients, that’s what I’m talking about at IAO to eat less and get more.

So that’s why I want to eat sunflower greens. They are incredibly high in nutritional value. So let me go through the process of how to actually grow it. It’s very easy to grow it. You only need a few things that you can get from most nurseries and they’re all very inexpensive. Let me run through what I have on the table here. First thing: you’re going to get us some soil. This is organic, seedling mix that I got from a nursery.

I like seedling, mix cuz, it’s fine, so that the seedlings don’t have to work very hard to get their roots into the ground and to get the little heads out of the soil. You can’t use compost to always make sure that it’s organic, then they haven’t used chemical fertilizers because those will burn the roots of your plants and they’re not going to be happy next thing. You’re going to need are trays. Now these trays, I got from a nursery and they’re, really inexpensive, little back black trays, and you can buy a couple of those and have them on hand for whenever you want to grow your sunflower greens and then lastly, you would need a base to catch the Water in in this base, you can also get from nurseries, but you can also get it at a lot of bigger shops.

They do stock them now. You can see these to fit quite nicely in the base and the reason I want the base is when I’m watering, I don’t want the water to flush all the nutrients out and away. I want the water to stay in the tray so that the greens can draw out the nutrients from the water and it’s not all washing away. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, is the seed you need to get some sunflower seeds now, if you look at these sunflower seeds, they still have the shell on them.

Now. What I found is that when they still have the shell on them, they sprout a lot better. You don’t have to have them once the shell and you’ll even see there are a couple in here that have been shelled already. They will sprout, even if they are shelled, but I’d like to use the shelled ones, because you just get more of them sprouting. Okay, so how do we do this? The first thing you want to do is: take your seat and put that seed in water.

You can use a glass jar plastic tubs, some kind of some kind of bottle about so big put the seeds in there and then cover it with water and let it stand overnight. That’s soaking the seeds so that it activates the seats of the seed will sprout now you’re going to do that for about 12 hours, the soaking sorry and then, once the seeds are soaked wash the water away and then leave them damp in the same jar.

For another day around about what you’ll find is that a little tail is going to come out of the end of the seed out of the end of the seeds. You’ll find a little tail growing and that’ll tell you that you’ve got seed that will grow and that’ll also give the seed a head start for when you actually plant it into the soil. Okay. Now what this does is, if you’ve got a whole bunch of seed, and you put it all in the soil and you cover it all up, and you got all that trouble and none of the seed sprouts, because it’s dead seed or its irradiated seed you’ve wasted A huge amount of time so soaking it and sprouting it first is essential because it allows you to make sure that your seed will grow so sprouting it like that.

It’s exactly the way that Joseph grows, these sprouts with kitchen-garden, and actually I used some of his big bottles to sprout my seeds. It’s the best thing because you’ve got the mesh on top and it’s easy to then drain the seed and pop it back on again. So definitely that’s a great system to use to sprout your your seeds before you’re, going to plant them okay, but now we want to get planting. Let’s for a minutes, go we’ve soaked the seeds, we’ve sprouted the seeds.

The seeds is already now. How do we plant them? Get your trays lined up and then get your hands dirty. None of this little Spade business. You need to get your vibes into the soil, because the soil and the seeds want to know who’s, planting them and then you’re going to take your soil. You can see this nice rich, dark, seedling mix, I’m just going to take about a handful handful. At a time do that on both both trays? Okay, you just shake the tray up to get a nice even level.

You don’t put a baby to bed in a lumpy bed. You put them in a smooth made-up bed, so you want to make sure your bed is smooth. Okay, next you’ll take your seed, your seed you’re, just going to put once again about a handful or so into the center. Now these haven’t been soaked in sprouted. Yet so remember you want to soak yours and sprout yours first and then, just with your hand, spread them all the way around.

Okay. What you’re looking out for is about one layer of seed across if you’ve got too many seeds on top of each other they’re going to compete for space and if you’ve got too few seeds in there, you’re not going to get a good crop. So you want to get it, so you can see a little bit of soil sticking out whew clamping on the side, but there is space between the seeds and now the seeds are ready. So the next step – and this is a very important set – that a lot of people actually leave out when they’re trying to grow sunflower, greens – and that is you need to cover your sunflower greens of soil.

Again, there are a couple of reasons. Why do this? But the most important one is that if there are a couple of seats that haven’t sprouts – and so they don’t have the tail, if you don’t cover them, what’ll happen is they’ll go mouldy and that mold can then spread and contaminate the rest of your crop and Actually make your entire crop fail, so you want to make sure it’s covered with soil. Why does that? Stop the mold there bacteria in the soil, that’ll eat up all those moldy seeds that they won’t spread their mold into your actual crop.

Okay, so you want about a handful again, that’s so much and just cover it over the seat. You don’t want to put too much on because otherwise they’re going to have to work really hard to push through the soil, but just enough so you can’t see the seed anymore excellent. So if you have a look at that now, you can just see a few seeds. Most of them are hidden away, put and put away when they’re young like that they don’t want to get blasted by sunlight.

So it’s also a good idea to cover them with the soil. For that reason, now what would you think the next most important thing would be to do, but I seed in the soil. It’s sprouted, it’s ready to grow. What is the next thing to do? Go to water, your seats, water is essential at this point, so grab your watering bucket or your watering can and lightly water them it can soak through. But the important thing is you don’t want to blast it with a hose pipe you’re, just going to get all the seeds coming up and mixing through again so likely water everything.

Now that would be one tray and you can have a really good salad out of about half of one of these trays. I mean, if you have a look at how this has grown. It becomes a huge mess of food. If you want to do this, for a family or for yourself for a week, have a couple of these growing at one time start up, say six or seven and then when the first one is ready to eat, you can start on that one by the time.

The end one is ready to eat. It’s grown a little bit further, but that’s absolutely fine. That way you can keep rotating and you only need to plant about once a month, maybe one twice a month. I do it about every second week and then there’s enough for for my entire household to eat, sunflower greens once you start eating sunflower, greens you’ll, absolutely never look back, they’d, absolutely delicious for a salad, green and the nutrient value just makes you feel so good after Eating them, anyone who succeeds in a healthy lifestyle does so because they include high density nutrient, rich foods like this.

Yes, and now we’re going to do the important step of watering, so I’ve just gotten a watering. Can one of these will do absolutely fine fill that up with spring water, I’m just going to run a light sprinkle of water over it? Remember you don’t want to blast the seeds with water you’re, going to get them all to come out the soil, and then you going to have to cover them with soil again, such as a light sprinkling of water like so a few of the seeds will rise.

If you haven’t covered them, but most of them are covered completely and if you’re worried about it, just an extra little sprinkling will take care of all of that. There we go perfect and the amazing thing about nature. Is you just leave it and it grows, and then it gives you food there’s nothing else. You need to do all I’d say you need it on daily basis, just give it a bit of water, depending on our Hut.

It is once a day, maybe twice a day. Another important thing to remember is not to keep it in full Sun all day long. Cuz it’ll dry it very quickly in this black plastic container, so you want to keep it in a place where it gets half Sun or maybe two hours of sunlight in a day, but no more than that water. It once a day it’ll be ready for. You need probably within around seven to ten days and you’ll, see all the greens coming up and growing out.

The batch I have yeah is and around 14 days already, and you pull one of these out, you see how amazing they grow to a huge sprout. Look at the size of that now that’s about perfect to eat and that you can just eat exactly as you need lettuce or salad. It’s absolutely delicious! Now one thing to look out for when you’re growing, a sunflower greens. How do you know if they’ve gone too far if they’ve grown too long, simple way to tell us that there’ll be a second leaf that comes out the center? Now, when the second leaf comes out, this is quite bitter, so you can still eat the sprout at this point, but you want to really clip that leaf off so that you left with just the two original leaves that grew, and these are the sweet, tasty ones, But this is the bitter one so leave that one out take that and then put that in your salad, but it’s absolutely usable even up till not just three weeks after you’ve planted it excellent.

It’s been amazing to be able to share how to make this with you. I can’t emphasize enough get growing sunflower greens, the nutritional value you’re going to get is phenomenal out of it. Oh before I forget, there’s an incredible way: it’s a secret way of making your sunflower greens hold more minerals than any other salad you can buy in the shops. How would you do that? It’s one of the ultimate fertilizers ever discovered and it’s almost free or it could be absolutely free intrigued now.

What I do is once they’ve grown out of the soil, so maybe about so high just so you can see the green leaves. I take my water in. Can and I put two tablespoons of rock salt or sea salt into the water mix it through with the water and then water with a sea salt solution. Now sea salt has all 92 minerals in it that we need for nutrition. All the minerals we required. So once you order it, the the roots which are now formed can actually absorb all those minerals that we need into them and you can eat this.

So it’s an incredible way of getting all those extra minerals into your diet without anything to take supplements. So remember one maybe two tablespoons level of sea salt into about a five liter watering can mix that through and water that now in this situation, you can water every single day because the waters not leaking out. But if you’ve got a vegetable garden, you want to be careful because too much salt can actually damage certain plants, sunflower, green and also wheatgrass.

It’s very happy with a lot of salt. So it’s it’s pretty unlikely you’re going to kill them, and I haven’t yet – and I’ve put a lot of salt in mine, so we cross is exactly the same way. The way we’ve just grown, sunflower greens grow wheatgrass. In exactly the same way you get wheat seed. Instead of sunflower seed and the process is exactly the same, wheatgrass will grow up into grass, you’ll cut it you’ll juice it, and you can have that as an incredible nutrient boost excellent.

Well, that’s about it! It’s very simple! By the things it’s going to cost very little money to get all things together, get making it and you’re going to actually love this taste enjoy best. Oh
