No Subsitute for Green Foods


There is no substitute for green foods in our diet.  A large vegetable salad every day is one of the best things we can do for ourselves.  As a preventive of disease, it is far superior to all the vaccines and serums ever devised to keep you healthy.  It is important that we eat them every day.  The green leaves of plants are our richest sources of organic minerals and they are rich sources of vitamins.  They also offer small quantities of the highest grade proteins as well as chlorophyll. Chlorophyll gives us the most protection against carcinogens and debilitating diseases. Chlorophyll promotes elimination of toxins from the body. It helps to strengthen cells and the immune system. Collard greens are extremely high in calcium. Green Foods pack more nutritional punch per ounce than any other foods on the planet. Some green foods include spinach, kale, chard, turnip greens, beet greens, cabbage, broccoli, okra, green beans, fresh peas, asparagus, collards, lettuce, celery, Chinese cabbage, Bok choy, etc.  All of these vegetables are good in their raw state.  A salad doesn't have to be a lot of work.  You can just pile the veggies on your plate with out doing much cutting at all.  Serve big lettuce leaves, stalks of celery and a cucumber sliced.  All you really need is 3 or 4 different items for your beautiful creation. 


It is also very important that children have a daily salad.  With the salad you can add a steamed vegetable as well.
Besides green vegetables, I add green smoothies to our diet (made from green barley grass, frozen bananas & parsley).
There is no substitute for green foods in our diet, so be sure to include them every day-your good health depends on it!

  1. i've been drinking bird nest soup every night (i only get the homemade kind back at home). the only reason why i drink it is because it's supposed to be good for complexion.

    i’ve been taking the store-bought kind online (e.g. www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm of famous branded only of course) which is directly mailed from Hong Kong. this would be at a more affordable price.

  6. Debbie, I had so much fun talking with you this summer. I've been trying to follow the tips you shared with me. I haven't felt so good as long as I can remember. And I actually feel like I'm thinking much more clearly. It's wonderful. And as an added benefit, my friends have noticed how healthy I look. I had a friend come visit and I shared your tips with her. She's excited to see the benefits in her life and her son's. Just yesterday another friend asked me to share my new eating habits with her because she wants to experience the changes I have enjoyed. Thank you so much. And I'm loving your blog and Morgan's too!!! Loves, Sammie (the younger)

  7. Sammie, you are sooo...cute. I loved spending time with you this summer and sharing all of my health ideas. I am so glad you are noticing what a difference it makes in the way you feel. The wonderful fringe benefit to taking care of your inside, is that you will look healthy and have a glow about you on the outside~clear eyes & skin and youthful energy. You are already gorgeous, but it looks like people are noticing this extra glow. That is awesome that you are helping your friends too. If you run into any questions, please contact me or Morgan. Thank you for adding your comments. I was very excited to hear from you and hope you will comment often:)
