Improve Your Food Vocabulary by Eating Your Words
Want to be healthier? Eat (or drink) your words. I'm serving generous helpings for your consumption today. Here goes:
Omega 3 – fatty acids needed for a healthy body found in plant foods
Omega 6 – more fatty acids, also needed for a healthy body and found in plant foods
Edamame – immature soybean used as an appetizer in China, Japan, Korea and Hawaii
Walnuts – excellent source for Omega 3, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
Flax seeds – one of the oldest fiber crops in the world and a great addition to smoothies
Winter Squash – where ABC's can be found (Vitamin A, B2, B6, C and K)
Black Beans – Legumes rich in protein
Kidney Beans – contain molybdenum, a mineral needed to support 7 enzymes in the body
Kale – filled with antioxidants to protect against various cancers
Chia Seeds – high in Omega 3 fatty acids
Caveman Signature Smoothie – You can find the recipe in the archives of this blog or in my next book, scheduled for release on May 1. It's how I drink my vitamins and fatty acids every morning.
If you're serious about improving your food vocabulary, I also recommend refraining from eating or drinking any words derived from processed foods. Consider them as slang for the soul and give them up forever. Have a great day.
