Balance Hormones: Fresh Green Summer Salad
How are you doing? Enjoying the beautiful weather: sun and seaside? We surely need all the showers of blessings we have been receiving with all these hot days. During these months, all we want is snacks since we are so energized. Even though we are having fun , we need to eat those greens to have all the energy for the day. My family and I enjoy Fresh Green Summer Salad with all the lovely bright colors which keeps us ready and in shape for all the on the go moments with the friends and family gathering.
We must remember that the more colorful our salad is, the more healthier it is and better for our children. It has all the vitamins and iron it should have. You can add some nuts and a bit of fruits if you like the mixture to it as it makes your salad even healthier. I enjoy the sweet taste in my salad but not everyone likes that mixture. So here I am sharing my Green Summer Salad recipe and tips with you and learn how to Balance Hormones: Fresh Green Summer Salad.
Green Summer Salad
1 pack baby Spinach and Spring Mix Blend
1 carrots shredded
1 medium tomato sliced
1 cucumber sliced
1 pack mushroom (optional)
1 Lemon or lime juice
Spices to taste
Salt & pepper to taste
Olive oil to taste
Wash all vegetables and fruits well to take off insecticide from the fruits and vegetables. Slice tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms, onions and shred carrots and lemon/lime to juice. Place baby spinach and spring mix in bowl then add all other ingredients. Squeeze lemon/lime and add to salad and Olive oil to taste. Add Salt, pepper and other spices desired. Mix well.
Note that I used vitamins C (lemon/lime) it helps with the iron absorption which is used up by the body intake easily. This really helps your immunity system and gives energy as well. You are as healthy as what you eat. Remember the more greens you eat the better. It builds up your blood cells. Also, another important factor is to eat more greens and carrots (fiber.) Fiber is necessary as it helps you to be more regular and we process estrogen conversion through our waste. When we do not eat any fiber well, our estrogen goes up which causes other problems. We need to learn to limit our intake on meat, sugar, fruit, grain, diary and toxin. Toxin (herbicide and pesticide) is the cause of many of our healthy problems causing hormone imbalance.
Did you know that toxins can be found in face creams, prescription drugs, processed foods, lipstick and the lining of food cans () as well as the fire-retardant materials in the couches?
How toxin (pesticide & herbicide=food) affects your children hormones and diet.
Let’s chat a bit about a topic we do not really like to talk about-: what our modified food contains: steroids and toxins. We find this in meats as this is found in the animals’ feed and GMO. Of course, if you eat meat, you get toxin, steroid and antibiotics in your body. These behave like estrogen when they are in our body. Unfortunately, we find many toxins which also includes pesticide and herbicide in genetically modified food. You can find many more toxin in meat. What I learned is that these modified food affects our children’s health, both male and female. Oh yes dear, these toxins (pesticide, plastics and industrial chemicals) all react like estrogen when absorbed in the body.
Based on experts, the increase exposure to toxins is believed to be the reason why young girls are reaching puberty quickly more and more and why some boys exhibit feminine characteristics such as developing breast. Oh yes, it all the change in our food. Our eating lifestyle (toxin) is also a contributing factor elevated risk of estrogen driven disease such as breast and ovarian cancer and what is quite common now endometriosis.
All the toxin (pesticide, herbicide) are fake estrogen which is causing an estrogen overload. This is unbalancing your hormones and besides causing problems with your child’s body it is affecting your regular diet. Your normal diet is not helping your weight as it should as the toxin is causing a havoc with your hormones. We really need to know what toxin is being used as pesticide and herbicide. It is a very interest topic that we need to learn more about.
