Prolonged health and youth
Good health at the same time ensures our well-being and a look as we wish. No matter how well we know the lesson of a healthy diet, at some point the routine appears in the plates. This is precisely the most dangerous time for abandoning the struggle whose purpose is prolonged health and youth.
How about replacing some hard-to-digest dishes in the evening, such as minced meat and rice, for example, with a salad that bites vitamins? In addition to your favorite vegetables we can also add oily grass leaves. It contains plenty of vitamin C, b-group vitamins, vitamin E, vitamin A, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, Omega3.
Fatty grass juice is useful for health in the treatment of cystitis, dysentery, for the elimination of intestinal worms, but also for the calming of insect bites. So, I propose at times like this and beyond, try Kale, fat grass and mangold, for perfect health.
Kale, healthy vegetable
Kale is one of the healthiest green vegetables. A portion of 130 g Kale contains: 6% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin K, 1% vitamin A, 8% vitamin C,10% fiber, 10% copper, 69% vitamin B, 6.5% of the iron dose and 9.3% of the calcium dose. It is also recommended in slimming straps: 100 g have only 28 calories.
Kale is part of the cruciferous family and as its brothers broccoli or cabbage, we enjoy a special taste and nutrients. We can steam it for 5 minutes, to maintain normal cholesterol levels and to make the bile work properly.
Recent studies show that this green vegetable helps fight chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, helping to detoxify the body. More than 45 different types of flavonoids have been discovered that increase anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers. Kale, fights against several types of cancer: breast, colon, ovaries, prostate and bladder.
In China, Vietnam and Taiwan, it is eaten alongside beef, in Sweden it is added to soup, in Montenegro it combines with smoked mutton and potatoes, in Japan its juice is considered a dietary supplement, and in South-East Africa boils in coconut milk and is eaten seasoned with ground nuts, rice or boiled corn.
Fatty grass, medicine food
Fatty grass is considered a drug food and just like kale helps to restore cholesterol levels. Fatty grass extract is indicated for those with high blood sugar, as they lower high blood sugar levels.
This vegetable has been appreciated for thousands of years, especially in arid areas because it protects from burning or helps to restore body temperature in case of fever, treatment of constipation, headache, stomach, kidney or conjunctivitis.
In popular tradition it is considered that if put under the pillow has the ability to banish nightmares. Our ancestors used his juice in combination with wine against poison with a donkey.
In Italy, Turkey or Mexico, fatty grass enriches the taste of soups, as well as meat, in Japan it combines with rice or fish, in India it is pickled as a spice, and in France it is used in sauces.
Mangold promotes longevity
The qualities of this plant have been known for more than 3,000 years, Ancient Babylon being the place where it was discovered, and Ancient Rome the place where it was consecrated. Mangold is common on the tables of Italians, people who seem to know how to choose foods that promote longevity.
Mangold is also grown in countries such as India, Japan, USA. One kilogram of mangold beet leaves have almost 200 calories, which puts them at the top of the foods to be bought or grown.
Mangold originates in wild beets, but its root is of no food importance. Attention is focused on the leaves. They are eaten whole or only petiolate, having a pleasant taste if boiled in salted water.
From the leaves can be prepared smoothies or added to various soups. It can also replace spinachin many dishes. The advantage is that it can be picked from spring to frost. It’s also called Roman cabbage.
I propose a recipe for mangold pudding designed to convince you to consume it. It has countless health benefits, but it’s also extremely tasty.
Ingredients: 125 g long grain rice, 200 g mangold leaves, 50 g sheep’s cheese, 1/2 tablespoon freshly chopped thyme, 130 g sliced red, 2 beaten eggs, 100 ml semi-skimmed milk, salt, pepper.
Preparation mode: heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Boil the rice in boiling water according to the instructions on the package. Cut the tails from the beet leaves and chop them. Cut the leaves into 2 cm slices. Put the tails in a large saucepan with boiling water and boil them for 2 minutes. Then add the leaves and simmer for another 2 minutes. Drain well and put them under cold running water.
Drain them and mix them with the boiled rice and 25 g of cheese. In a saucepan with baking paper, put a layer of tomatoes, the rice mixture with beetroot and another layer of tomatoes. Over, add the beaten eggs and milk. Shave the remaining cheese. Bake gently in the oven. You’re going to love it! Good health!
