This is One meal - my Brunch. Why variety is important?
Green juice 1 litre:
🌱Parsley, cucumber, pumpkin, ice, water. 🌱My staples: grated cucumber, daikon, carrot, local greens, mangoes, onions. I added my Green juice + peanuts in blender and ate it as a Raw soup with my Salad (see next picture).
Today I also feel like more Protein - sprouted mung beans, soaked peanuts, green beans, shallot and banana - delicious filling salad for someone who physicality active.
Mangoes, banana - add nice taste to my food, but they too sweet to eat on its own and not satisfying enough. All together it’s way more Delicious! 🌱🌱🌱
All my taste Buds get stimulated: sweet, sour, umami, mineral(salty), bitter, fatty.
Not only stimulated, my body actually getting all this elements, it was looking for:
Calories - quick sugars and slower vegetable starches, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, fatty acids (fats), amino acids (proteins), plenty of digestive enzymes from greens.
This creates highest level of satisfaction. You wouldn’t crave cooked foods after a meal like this. 🌱🌱🌱
Liquid nutrients - Green juices, soups, - get absorbed better and quicker. That’s why satiety mechanism gets activated quicker, preventing overeating. Make sure it’s greens, phytonutrients, fatty acids - which get liquidised, not sugars. Or you will feel opposite effect - more appetite, more blood sugar issues. 🌱🌱🌱
Proteins from greens, root vegetables, beans - will also control appetite and blood sugar. I exercise everyday and will crave more protein foods often - so when I feel - I include sprouted mung beans and soaked overnight peanuts, green beans, sweet peas. 🌱🌱🌱
Remember - You have to listen to your body, to see what it needs. It is silly to copy someone else’s “needs”. Just don’t be “fooled” if it sends you false signals for Processed, salted, sugared, oiled foods 😉.
