My entire life I have been searching for foods that act like medicine.
When we are living in a challenged body we are not as concerned about the palate pleasures.
We want to feel well and that desire overrides our weakness for yummy treats that taste ridiculously delicious but in reality, they are just empty 'palate teasers' (at best) and serious 'chemical bombs' (at worst). Nothing looks as good as awesome feels! Nothing!
On my never ending search for medicinal foods I have come across some seriousedible 'magic.' What is really impressive is that some of them taste better than anyone expected. I was thrilled - here I was, all ready to eat bitter and horrid that will be medicinal for my system... and what did I find? Medicines that tasted like... chocolate andcaramels.
Here they are, simply magical food substancesthat rocked my world. I wish to share this information with you so, perhaps, you too get inspired and reconsider what you call food. I mention here just a few.
MAGIC SLIMMING FOODS:
This amazing chocolate looking and sweet tasting heavenly fluid comes from a root of a plant that grows in Andes mountains. It is low GI and it does have the power to make us slimmer. The phrase that is used on most sites to describe this power is "significant weight loss." Isn't that a good news?
What to do with it?
Makechocolate spread out of it, use it in your desserts instead of any other sweetener, pour it over your porridge or a toast in the morning. Let it rock your world!
- Thai Basil Seeds
Such miracles these tiny seeds are. They expand in water like crazy. One spoon of dry seeds become a full plate of wet cute looking yumminess that bursts in your mouth atprecisely the right moment (like caviar.)
They are full of fiber. Good-bye constipation! If only that. Thai Basil seeds are also a potent antioxidant and antiviral to mention just a few benefits.
What to do with them?
Soak them for ten minutes(one tablespoon of seeds in one cup of water) and get creative. Slap that gorgeous bubliness into porridge OR make dessert out of them. There is a fabulous FoodisLove Dessert recipe in this section for you.
Color them purple with fresh beetroot juice, or green with matcha tea, add some healthy sweetener and enjoy an exciting detox dessert. Holly-shmolly-guacamolly!
- Raw Cacao
How amazing is that on top of zillion of other things that cacao has to offer to our human system, it also promotes weight loss. Did you know that most of the weight loss products have cacao powder in them? Thatis for a good reason. Cacao is reducing our appetite and making us feel full, not to mention - seriously elated and happy. What to do with it?
Ohhh. I like this magical substance so much, I wrote a book about it.
Here is an idea for beginners: mix raw cacao powder with the yacon syrup, and have your self a yummy slimming dessert.
You can make your own chocolate cakes, brownies and truffles. There are plenty of recipes to chose from.
DNA ACTIVATING FOODS
Any super foods are fabulous for us. By that I mean they are good for our brain cells, for our DNA, for our blood, and well being in general. They are not some empty palate-pleasers like most ordinary modern foods are. They have the power to heal, to align, and to change our experience of life.
If you are new to super foods, please take it slowly, introducing them gently to your diet and watch the alchemical reaction between you and these magical foods. You just might find yourself thinking, feeling, and functioning better than you ever thought you could.
