Bee Pollen

B E E   P O L L E N

Bee pollen is the male seed of a flower blossom which are collected by the honey bees and mixed with the bees' digestive enzymes. It has most of the nutrients needed for human survival with higher percentages  of those necessary nutrients than any other food. That said, bee pollen strengthens  immunity, rejuvenates your bod, and even counteracts effects of radiation and chemical toxins therefore making you real strong like a wild tiger. 

What else?

helps with adrenal fatigue

flushes fat out of the body

increases fertility

can decrease seasonal allergies

can help you live a long life

 

How to eat?

I sprinkle bee pollen over yogurt or a smoothie. You can try whatever minus heating them or they won’t work anymore. Don't let this happen.

Another blood purifier that removes toxins, this humble plant is so loaded with the good stuff that eating it cooked, raw or fermented repairs the wear and tear of your body- inside and out. 

From ulcers, constipation, eczema, certain cancers, immune and nervous system, cabbages’ got you. 

Lets not underestimate this guy. Very inexpensive. Comes in green and purple. Becareful, overcooking causes gas. 

Green Tea

Originated in china & popularized in japan, green tea has been used as medicine for thousands of years. 

Green tea detoxes the body by binding to heavy metals and carcinogens within 24 hours of consumption. That means if you drink 2-3 cups a day, you are in constant detox mode keeping liver disorders at bay, warding off disease, and slowing down the aging process. 

Green tea is preferred over coffee for hangovers because it protects the liver from the negative effects of booze while also reducing liver redness. Less dehydrating than coffee equals shorter hangovers. 

Green tea also stimulates digestion and also supports Crohn’s disease and colon ulcers. 
there are many types: genmaicha, Sencha, jasmine, gunpowder, there are lots. Explore your faves.

The Artichoke

T H E   A R T I C H O K E  
Belongs to the milk thistle family, popular for its detoxification properties. 
Artichokes speed up liver recovery, rebuild it, and even protects the liver after helping it release its toxins. 

The artichoke plant and its leaves (tea) aid in the digestion of fats, which prevents and treats indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, bloat, gas, and heartburn. 

Eating the plant and drinking its tea feeds your good bacteria therefore strengthening digestion, immunity AND elimination of excess body fat. 

Artichokes tend to be sprayed with lots of pesticides (if bought commercially), which would be counterproductive to your liver. So, dipping your artichokes in water with a few teaspoons of baking soda will help to remove them. 

Eggs

Pasture raised-organic eggs bring on good cholesterol. The bod needs cholesterol for the production of hormones, like the sunshine vitamin (D). The sunshine vitamin is created by the body when the sun hits the skin and there's a little perspiration. Without cholesterol, there's little to zero of that vitamin being created. 

The yolk offers energy, detoxification, brain development and healing to the digestive and reproductive systems. 

Signs for quality & freshness. The intensity of the yolk yellow-oj determines their diet. Typically the better the diet in seeds and worms will be a richer oj hue. To test for freshness, put the egg in a glass of water. If it sinks and lays flat, you got an goodie. 

PS. The only diff between brown and white eggs is the color of the hen
