THE HEALTHIEST VEGETABLE … ISNT KALE .. THANK F*ck

I’m not a member of the Kale Club

I always feel like I’m chewing on a Nappy when I eat it .. so rough .. so rigid … and so needy .. you basically need to massage it better than a 90 minute Swedish Remedial to make it somewhat supple… and agreeable .. which actually does sound a lot like myself , so despite being the human equivalent of KALE , I simply don’t get the hype .

I do appreciate it being the Gateway Vegetable (insert WEED joke here) for healthy living . but the same way a stoner can get locked into the monotony of lighting up daily “just cos” I think the other vegetables have been overlooked (this is not an incentive to try various drugs, this is just poor writing on my behalf… please stick to BUTTON mushrooms)

LUCKILY SOME SMARTIES TOOK THE TIME TO DO THE RESEARCH AND DISCOVER WHAT IS THE REAL SUPER FOOD VEGGIE ???

Jennifer Di Noia of William Paterson University, looked at 17 important nutrients naturally occuring in food (fiber, protein, potassium, Vitamin A, B12, D) and calculated how much of those nutrients were found in a 100-calorie serving. The results are interesting. Watercress ranks as the most nutrient-rich vegetable, while other leafy greens like chard, chicory and lettuce rank well. Turnips, sweet potatoes and grapefruits performed worse.

SEE FULL CHART BELOW :

Powerhouse-Fruits-and-Veggies (1)

SO the winner was WATERCRESS! who’d have thought .. being the cliche I am .. I naturally went out a purchased some .. and ate it stems and all .and then i found  A WHOLE FREAKIN’ SITE DEDICATED TO WATERCRESS!!!

NOTE : if you want to be super annoying you could pick the top ten and make a dish .. how Health-Food-Blogger Of you ..

Drop The Idea Of Protein Being A Meat Thing

Screen Shot 2013-10-01 at 08.45.35

This is possibly the most annoying thing I ever hear.. “but if i don’t eat meat/ animal productsIi wont have enough protein!!’

“All vegetables have protein. In fact, calorie for calorie, spinach is more protein rich than beef. While 100 calories of ground beef has 10 grams of protein, 100 calories of fresh baby spinach has 12 grams.”


the above quote comes from an article on Natural News about how to Beat Inflammation  CLICK IT HERE 

It details why its important to lessen your meat consumption-along with refined sugars and carbs due to there acidity . AND IS JUST A GREAT READ !

Although I don’t eat meat I am so aware that people do need it because of their constitution and I completely believe in the organic farming industry . However I do have a slight issue (does anyone care about my issues?!?) with the regularity in which people consume animal products . BASICALLY IF YOURE EATING SOME KIND OF ANIMAL PRODUCT AT EVERY MEAL , YOU NEED TO REASSESS YOUR DIET! for the sake of your insides, your heart, PH level , energy levels and all round health

Get High With Hemp

Screen Shot 2013-04-30 at 16.09.33

no not the one you smoke .. or the one they make horrible fisherman’s pants out of .

This hemp is an entirely different strain of plant to Cannabis.. well the same strand as the vegan clothes.. but different form … they’re tiny nuts which are actually part of the fruit / flower family.. I’m confusing you .. especially if you clicked here due to the title.. dont get your dreads in a twist.

its basically a little nutty sunflower seed tasting .. soft textured superfood . it can be eaten raw.. made into hemp milk sprouted or shelled .

shelled is easiest as you just sprinkle it in salads or soups or breakfast.. just fling it about … hemp shower !!

delicious and nutritious .. it is the veg equivalent of a steak and its full of the new fashionable fat Omega 3.. good fatty good .

so facts:

30% make up of easily digested protein

all 10 amino acids

cholesterol regulator (so steak without the steak bad bits)

omega-6 to omega-3 fat which can help to improve your moods

anti-inflammatory

gamma linoleic and stearidonic acid which can help with eczema, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies high Cholesterol

anyway .. a lot of athletes swear by it and use it as an energy boost .. and its in many-a-health-experts-smoothie . ANNNDDD Hugh Jackman ate them to get buff for wolverine … cue everyman just face planting into a bowl of hemp

so get hempy
