Why Fresh Vegetables and Fruits Lead to a Healthy Body : Includes Information on Nutrition, Blenders, Proper Storage of Fruits and Vegetables, Smoothie Recipes and Scientific Nutritional Studies on Food and the Impact on Our Health – Carole Comeau
This book offers you in-depth information about the role of fresh vegetables and fruits in your body’s health, and it shows you how easy it can be to include plenty of these healthy foods in your family’s daily diet. Certified nutritionist and certified raw food chef Carole Comeau briefly shares her personal journey from illness to health before explaining that the typical American diet wreaks havoc with your health because it’s acid producing, once digested. But by consuming plenty of alkaline foods-especially uncooked leafy greens-you can keep your acid-alkaline (also known as pH) balance in a healthy range. In a clear, easy-to-understand manner, she also discusses the vitamins and minerals found in fresh veggies and fruits, as well as the importance of enzymes and fiber. Comeau then offers several delicious smoothie recipes that are simple to make with easy-to-find frozen fruits and prewashed vegetables-at costs that won’t bust the family budget. Rounding the book out with a list of high-powered blenders to choose from and advice on how to store fresh vegetables and fruits, she delivers both the “why” and the “how” to provide a healthy diet for yourself and your loved ones.
