Lemons…Food is your Prevention & Cure!!!!

Amazing Frozen Lemons

All it is…..is a frozen lemon

 Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted.

How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

 Simple.. place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

 Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, whisky, wine…. the list is endless.

 All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before.

Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.

 Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in soups & stir-fry’s.

 What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

 Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself.

And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting.

 But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

 It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

 So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That’s the lemon secret! Better late than never, right? The surprising benefits of lemon!

Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

 Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.

 You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.

 How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

 As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.

 You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc…. It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.

It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

Foods To Keep Your pH in Balance

I have written a few posts about how raw Apple Cider Vinegar and Kombucha’s are both “Amy Approved” or one could say “Amy Obsessed” products as they help to keep our bodies pH in balance.  Our bodies are designed to live within a narrow pH range – slightly on the alkaline side.  Slip into acidity and a multitude of problems arise.  Aim for 60-80% of your foods coming from the alkaline side and 20-40% coming from the acidic.

Top Alkaline Foods (Crazy, Sexy Diet)
Alkaline water
Almonds, brazil nuts, sesame seeds & flax-seeds
Avocados
Cold-pressed oils such as hemp, flax & borage seed
Moderate amounts of grains such as quinoa, wild rice, millet, amaranth, buckwheat.  Exceptions: wheat, oats, & brown rice are mildly acidic
Grasses, especially super-powered nutrient packed wheat-grass
Green drinks
Green veggies – all kinds, but especially leafy green veggies such as kale, spinach, lettuces, collards, mustard greens, turnip greens, cabbage, & endive
Lemons, limes & grapefruits – although these fruits are acidic, they actually have an alkalizing effect in your body
Lentils & other beans – in general, all legumes (beans & peas) are alkalizing
Miso
Oil-cured olives
Raw tomatoes – but cooked tomatoes are acidic
Root veggies, such as sweet potatoes, potatoes, turnips, jicama, daikon and burdock
Seaweed
Sprouts
Stevia (a sweetener)

Acidic Foods (Crazy, Sexy, Diet)
Alcohol
Animal protein: red meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk, cheese, dairy products
Chemicals, drugs, cigs, heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives
Coffee (even decaf), black tea
Heavily processed foods, no matter what they are made of
Honey, corn syrup, brown sugar, fructose
Ketchup, mayo, mustard (use sparingly)
Some legumes like chickpeas, black beans & soybeans are slightly acidic but are valuable staples of a healthy diet
Processed soy products tend to fall on the acidic side – enjoy them in moderation
MSG
Processed oils such as margarine, fake fats, trans fats, and refined vegetable oils
Refined grains, wheat & oats: white bread, pasta & rice are highly acidic
Soda, energy drinks, sport drinks
Table salt (sea salt & kosher salt are better choices in moderation)
All salted & roasted nuts
White sugar & sugar substitutes
Yeast & vinegar (w/ the exception of raw apple cider vinegar)
Soy sauce (use sparingly & choose low sodium tamari or gluten-free nama shoyu)
