Spiritual Benefits of a Vegetarian Diet

You are what you eat! Bondage and liberation are states of mind. The mind, as a mass of vibrating energy, is limited by the constitution or condition of that energy. If the energy is heavy or inert, little can be done with it to produce the state of…Continue

Hi - I came across a good site for smoothies and juices - thought I would share;

Health Benefits of Smoothies and Juices 

  • When      in liquid form, many of the nutrients can be easily digested by the body
  • They      are concentrated sources of beneficial nutrients.
  • By      blending or juicing we can increase the servings of fruits and vegetables      we intake in a day (who is going to eat a whole banana, a whole orange,      half a mango, one apple, and three carrots in one siting??? I got full      just typing that!) But when in the form of a smoothie or juice it is      easier to consume all those fruits and veggies in just 8 ounces of liquid!
  • Most      fruits, and even some veggies, provide natural sweetness to the mix,      helping us reduce the amount of refined sugars typically found in some      drinks. 
  • No      junk! No artificial flavors or colors, and no preservatives, additives      that can cause adverse reactions such as allergies or behavioral issues in      children (source).
  • They      can help in weight loss and weight maintenance, and detoxification.


 Other Benefits

  • Quick      and easy to make.
  • You      can pour them into to      reusable food pouches, or popsicle molds for a great frozen treats for the whole      family.
  • They      are a great way to use scraps of fruits and vegetable
  • Perfect      for sneaking in healthy ingredients and trick treat your kids to      complete and healthy snacks.
  • They      taste fantastic!

 

Tips for making smoothies and juicing successfully    

 

  • You      need the right equipment. For example, small blenders just don't cut it      when crushing ice. A high speed blender and a good juicer will make the      job much easier and quicker! (Here are some suggestions for smoothies Vitamix 5200s, and the Breville BJE510XL for      juicing.)
  • Use      the freshest fruits and vegetable possible
  • When      using strongly flavored spices add only half of the suggested amount and      work you way up if needed
  • Only      make one or two servings a the time to avoid overflowing
  • Add      a bit of fat. Fat, like coconut oil or butter, aid in the absorption of      nutrients
  • Read      more on tips for better juicing from Girl Meets Nourishment
  • Learn      how to build a better smoothie from Mary Vance, NC Holistic Nutrition & Wellness Coaching

Divinity, I've heard from some non-Canadian folks of that site. Glad you found it. Right now I use Curelle's Shampoo and Conditioners because I find that if I use overly cleansing ones, my hair gets more oily. I use a salt crystal for my underarms and also coconut oil right after I shower or shave. I don't wear much makeup - usually mascara and sometimes blush or a bit of cover up and I buy it from http://theallnaturalface.com/. I use Green Beaver Peppermint or Jason Naturals Sea Fresh toothpaste and some products from Weleda when I can afford them. I like Weleda too because they use fermentation to formulate nearly all of their products and their moisturizers can't be beat. I occasionally use Andalou Organics Komboucha face wash.  I find less and more when it comes to my skin. I like http://www.ewg.org/ for their reports on various ingredients and products too. I'd also love to hear what other people use and enjoy on their day-to-day.

Mr. Ed, Thank you for sharing such a nice vibration. It's wonderful to hear of your awareness and experience.
