Veggie Lettuce Wraps

July 15, 2012

Author Notes: In my blog (http://naturehealthandyoga.blogspot.com )I am suggesting that we are better off by NOT decrease the alkaline properties of vegetables by cooking them. With that, Increase the intake of mineral-rich foods.
While I do not completely disregard the cooking of the vegetables due to the fact that it helps to soften the food, which makes it easier to digest, I stay behind the fact that the raw veggies fall into the class of alkaline food. And I believe the alkaline diet leads to a healthier digestive system. Increasing the intake of alkaline foods has helped me, so I hope you see the same good results.

Also: Mineralization is one of the most important nutritional elements to naturally achieved healthy, glowing skin, strong nails, shiny hair and bright eyes. I have already talked about the mineral deficiency of our foods (mainly due to modern agricultural practices. ) You can see the article on this subject published on here: http://naturehealthandyoga.blogspot.com/2012/06/external-beauty-as-bonus.html
