Benefits

Spinach is a green leafy vegetable that are important for

bone health, skin & hair, protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals.  Ever

wonder, why Popeye ate spinach and instantly got big muscles?

Because spinach is full of protein that is were most of its 41 calories

come from.  Spinach is also high in potassium and water content,

which are good for the digestive tract.  Also, spinach promotes healthy

bones because they're high in vitamin K, which is also good for

calcium absorption thanks to our body’s friendly microbial bacteria.

Spinach can also prevent cancer!  Dark green leafy vegetables contain

chlorophyll, which have shown to effectively block carcinogen effects

which are generated when cooking foods at high temperature (e.g

meat, chicken, or any animal flesh).  No one should be eating meat

"animal flesh" if they want to prevent cancer, heart attacks or strokes,

diabetes, or any other dis-ease.  Spinach is also good for asthma

prevention, lowering blood pressure, and diabetes.  Make sure to be

eating 1 or moor cups of dark green vegetables Daily!

Hue-mans have been using different oils,

which are a type of fat for food and cosmetic reasons for thousands of

years now.  The best type of olive oil is extra virgin olive oil because

the olive oil is extracted using natural methods and standard for a

certain quality and purity like taste and smell.  Real olive oil is rich in

phenolic antioxidants, which is the reason why olive oil is beneficial.

Other cheaper refined olive oils are extracted with solvents, heated,

and diluted with other cheap oils.  Whenever buying make sure to get

the extra virgin olive oil to get the real benefits.  Olive oil is known

around the world for reducing cardiovascular dis-ease and all around

mortality rate found in Mediterranean diets.  Countless studies have

been carried out by various scientist both on animals and hue-mans

testing extra virgin olive oil and the results were that people

consuming moor extra virgin olive oil regularly are less likely to

develop cardiovascular dis-ease, including high blood pressure,

stroke, and high cholesterol.  Regular intake of olive oil also reduces

the risk of inflammation and other blood vessel complications.  Other

good facts about olive oil are they can prevent cancer, depression,

protect the liver, stroke, high cholesterol, and even against

Alzheimer's dis-ease!  A study has shown that 4 tbsp. of olive equals

the equivalent to 10 percent of the recommended prescription pain

killer ibuprofen of an adult, say researchers by Paul Breslin of the

Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia.  So, extra virgin olive

oil in the most natural and purest form is the best type of olive oil out

there to obtain the most nutrients.  Remember to not be afraid of

healthy oils and fats as they’re just as important to our health.  Thank

you Mama Nature for making food the medicine our bodies need to

thrive and heal.  13Ahavaa 13MotherNature

Kiwi fruits are underestimated in my opinion because of their

small size, but something to always remember is not to judge by

appearance because what is on the inside that counts.  Kiwifruit can

also help protect against asthma, macular degeneration, and are good

for our cardiovascular health.  Kiwi fruit are high in vitamin C, K, E,

copper, fiber, potassium, manganese, and foliate.

Mangoes have been named the most consumed fruit in the

world, and that’s why mangoes may very well be everyone’s favorite

tropical fruit.  There are over 1,000 varieties of mangos all throughout

Asia, Mexico, and Islands. 1 cup of mango contains 76% vitamin C,

25% vitamin A, 1% vitamin B6 plus other B vitamins, 9% probiotic

fibre, 9% copper, 7% potassium, and 4% magnesium that apply in the

daily value.
