Green Tea and Zucchini Noodles with Honey-Ginger Sauce 

Many studies revealed that green tea has enormous health benefits for body and spirit, due to its high level of antioxidants and nutrients. It is well known that green tea can improve brain function, reduces the risk of cancer and helps with weight loss. Also, green tea helps to lower “bad” LDL cholesterol.

Besides sipping a cup of green tea every day, we can build our antioxidant protection also with this delicious vegetarian salad.

Zucchini Noodles and Green Tea with Honey-Ginger Sauce

  • 8 oz. green tea soba noodles
    • sea salt
    • 3 medium zucchinis
    • 3TBS olive oil
    • 1TBS grated fresh ginger
    • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and grated
    • 2tips sesame oil
    • 2TBS Honey
    • 2Tbs soy sauce
    • juice from 1green lemon
    • 20-25 leaves fresh basil
    • 20-25 leaves fresh mint

Bring to a boil a large pot of salted water and cook the soba noodles according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.

In order to transform the zucchini into long noodles, I recommend you to use the Kitchen Supreme Spiralizer. It will help you create beautiful julienne spirals and your salad will look amazing.

Spiralizer

Place the zoodels in a colander, salt liberally and let drain 15 minutes.

Heat the olive oil in a small pan over medium heat, add the grated ginger and grated garlic, and fry for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Remove from heat, add the sesame oil, honey, soy and green lemon juice and stir until you get a smooth sauce. Add the sauce to the soba noodles and toss to coat.

Julienne the basil and mint leaves by stacking the leaves, rolling into a cylinder and thinly slicing. Add the julienned herbs to the noodles and toss. Squeeze the drained zucchini noodles to remove any additional liquid, then add the zucchini noodles to the other ingredients. Toss to combine. You may need to run a fork through the noodles to separate the strands and better combine both noodle types. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Enjoy this healthy, special and very low-calorie pasta!

Why you don’t want to miss the French Press Coffee! 

If you are that kind of person who immediately changes in the presence of a creamy cup of coffee and cannot resist to the smell of freshly grounded coffee, let me say that this article is for you.

Do you know which is the best way to prepare your coffee? What about the advantages of French Press Coffee?

Although we are aware that several cups of coffee causes acidity, if we have a well-balanced diet and stop at 2-3 cups of coffee a day, it can have many benefits for our health, but also it can influence our mood.

The benefits of coffee consumption are:
– it gives us energy;
– encourages socialization;
– helps us focus better;
– delights our senses;
– fights with migraines;
– aids digestion and weight loss process;
– gets rid of cellulite (Did you know that 80% of cellulite creams have caffeine as the main ingredient?);
– entertains you;
– prevents diabetes and prolongs your life due to its high content of essential antioxidants.

Important! In recent years, caffeine from coffee has been linked to the reduce risk of Parkinson’s disease and lower risk of heart disease. The advantages above only applies to coffee that is made from freshly grounded coffee and kept in correct conditions (sealed bags or jars).

Attention! Coffee from vending machines or instant coffee contains many toxic substances, poisonous that encourages disease.

We know that real coffee drinkers are eager to try several brewing methods, so I’ll tell you why we fell in love with the French Press, known as Coffee Press.

The French Press is the best way of highlighting the subtle flavors and essential oils from the coffee beans.

What should you know before you buy a French Press Coffee Maker?

✓ The big difference from other methods of preparing coffee, when water just passes through the coffee grounds, is that using a French Press implies coffee grounds that are steeped in boiling water. Coarse ground coffee release more caffeine, especially when the steeping time is longer.

✓ It is very easy to prepare! You just need a Heat Resistant French Press, coarse grind coffee and hot water (We recommend you use spring water or alkaline water).

✓ You can even take your French Press Coffee Maker at the office.

✓ Coffee is delicious, creamy, pure, velvety and tasty. Coffee prepared with a French Press has a unique taste.

✓ For obtaining 4 large cups of coffee (8 cups smaller) you need 1 liter / 34 oz French Press to share with those you love.

✓ Using a French Press allows you to control the exact amount of flavor you want to be extracted from the grounds. The amount of time the coffee is in contact with the water determines the type of brew that is produced.

✓ One of the most important aspects of a perfect cup of coffee is the oils from the grinds. Using a coffee machine does not allow these oils to get into the coffee, and the brew will lose some of its flavors. A French Pot uses only filter screens that permit all of the oils and extracts to mix with the grinds and water to produce an aromatic cup of coffee.

The Kitchen Supreme French Press will satisfy all your needs!

It’s made from high-quality materials and we are selling it at a launched price for a limited time.

Beside the 8-cups French Press we have prepared some gifts for you: a unique stainless steel spoon, a coffee scoop and 3 replacement filter screens.

Today’s TIPS: Drink a cup of coffee, meditate 5 Minutes, smile, love yourself as you are because there is kindness and beauty inside of you, change your attitude, be confident and HAVE A GREAT DAY!

 

Acid or alkaline, what do you choose? 

Our blood ph is the star of the day. I will share with you some shocking information that will help you understand better some functions in our body.

You probably already know that after food is digested, absorbed and metabolized, it becomes basic (alkaline) or acidic when is released into the bloodstream.
But what is the pH?
If the food has a higher pH the more alkaline it is and full of oxygen. That means a healthy environment where inflammations, infections and bacteria have no place. On the other hand, the more food has a lower pH, the blood becomes too acidic and deprived of oxygen. That means a “good” environment for infection, pain, inflammation and parasites.
The pH values vary from 0 to 14, the index of 7.0 is considered neutral. All values above 7.0 indicate a greater degree of alkalinity, and values below 7.0 show a higher level of acidity.
The human body keeps the pH in general around 7.35 – 7.45, and the deviation from the indices announce the installation of diseases.

Your diet can make you sick.
Meat, dairy, eggs, fish, cheese, seafood, coffee and the alcohol are highly acidic and the body is forced to neutralize the acidity with calcium and phosphorus from bones and teeth. All this causes the body to suffer from lack of large minerals, brittle bones, heart disease, diabetes and more.

Did you know?
Inuit (Eskimos, born in Greenland) have no access to fruits and vegetables. Their diet is based on fish dishes, whale blubber, etc. They eat fewer grains, and obviously their diet is very acidic. Although they have healthy hearts, their bones begin to deteriorate prematurely, and the Inuit have one of the lowest rates of longevity.

At the opposite pole are the inhabitants of Okinawa, Japan, where people live about 100 years, more than in any other place in the world. Although rice, meat, soy and seafood (very acidic) exist in their diet, it is complemented by a variety of vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidants and minerals, which help counteract the effects of acidity.

Many scientists have studied the acid-alkaline diet and reviled that an alkaline diet is the secret of health and longevity.

Take care of yourself starting from now! Discover alkaline foods that you like and add them to your diet.

We Recommend:
Fresh fruits and vegetables;
Lemon juice with warm water in the morning, drink tea instead of coffee (ginger tea);
Replace regular milk with soy, rice, almond or cashew milk;
Replacing butter with avocado and cheese with tofu.
Use a spiralizer for preparing zucchini and cucumber pasta; 
Use sea salt and apple vinegar instead of the balsamic;
Drink fresh juices, as a replacement for the ones in the supermarket;
Drink alkaline water with a high pH and lower levels of salt;
Add superfoods in your smoothies as goji, shelled hemp, maca, raw pollen and last but not least … learn to LOVE YOURSELF!

What you should know about zucchini
A big zucchini contains a large amount of magnesium (58 mg, The Linus Pauling Institute) and plays a significant role in the bone’s health.
In only 100 grams of zucchini there are 0.35 mg of vitamin B3, high levels of vitamin B9, 270 mg of potassium, iron, manganese, 30 mg phosphorus, zinc, 230 mg of provitamin A, 10 mg of vitamin C, 3.2 grams of dietary fibers, carotenoids (for visually impaired), anti-oxidants (reconstruction of nerve cells).
Zucchini is one of the best sources for protection against inflammation due to the presence of omega-3 fatty acids in seeds, as well as antioxidants (lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene) and polysaccharides.

Also, if you want to lose weight you can’t go wrong with zucchini. Are very low in calories (about 15 calories / 100g) and contain 95% water. Zucchini bark is full of fiber and can help protect against colon cancer. It also prevents diseases caused by intestinal parasites.

 

Why raw and crunchy veggies? 

Be aware of the choices you make! Did you know that soup is not so good for your health? It is very important to know that raw fruits and vegetables contain enzymes that energize us and keep our body in an excellent condition. Cooked food can weaken the body leading to disease.

The enzymes are so important because:
– Fight against parasites, infections, aids digestion and restores the body’s recovery.
– Life could not exist without enzymes; they are involved in every process in the body, from digestion through support for immune system functionality;
– Carry oxygen to all cells;
– Dissolve blood clots in the body;
– They take prepared and digested food and carry it to be used as building blocks for nerves, muscles, blood and endocrine glands;
– Enzymes from the immune system attack the toxins and waste from the blood.

What happens when we eat cooked food?
Body consume from enzyme reserves and, therefore, enzymes decrease in quantity. Also, reduce the body’s ability to process proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in excess, which weakens the body and cause illness. By cooking, a lot of live food enzymes dies because they do not survive at high temperatures.

I am right when I say that after eating cooked food you feel tired and sleepy? It is because that food is devoid of enzymes, minerals and nutrients. The body will take from teeth, bones, blood and other organs nutrients needed for digestion, which leads to deficiencies. It will be hard for you to concentrate because all the blood goes down into the stomach to deal with digestion.

What should you do? 
Eat small portions of cooked food in addition to a huge salad.

If you like sweets, don’t worry! You can prepare in a couple of minutes raw sweets made from almonds, cashew, honey, cacao beans, cinnamon, macadamia nuts, coconut butter and other healthy ingredients.

Replace regular pasta with zucchini, squash or carrot pasta. Is better for your health to avoid carbohydrates from spaghetti and replace them with vegetable noodles and julienne spirals.

Healing
Through a high intake of enzymes, you can balance your body. Eat more raw fruits, raw vegetables, raw nuts and seeds to give your body the vital energy he needs.

I also recommend you to drink fresh green juices and colored smoothies, and I can assure you that you’ll fell great in your body. You will be energized all day and present to all challenges that arise in your life!
