follow @healthy.fighter.tea | PEACHES, BLUEBERRIES, & CELERY | This simple but beautiful combination of fresh peaches, blueberries and celery offers a delicious melding of sweet and salty, juicy and crunchy. Together these foods offer a wonderful and nourishing snack that’s a perfect support for your adrenal gland health. As I share in my book Medical Medium, it’s vital to graze every 1-2 hours on foods that have a balance of potassium, sodium, and natural sugar (from fruit, raw honey or carbohydrate rich vegetables.) ___
Peaches are a wonderfully hydrating and mineral rich fruit that are easy to digest and rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and bioflavonoids. They have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and are especially beneficial for sinus issues, arthritis, high blood pressure, IBS, constipation, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne, nervous system issues, migraines, eye sight issues, and strengthening the immune system.
Blueberries are a nutritional powerhouse, loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. These sweet and satisfying berries are excellent liver and blood cleansers, are useful in counteracting urinary tract infections, and are vital to the health of eyes and the digestive tract. Blueberries also have the ability to repair tissues and cells, strengthen the circulatory system, sharpen cognitive abilities, and keep the immune system strong.
Consuming celery is the most powerful way to alkalize the gut. That’s in part because celery is high in bioactive sodium. It also contains cofactor micro trace mineral salts as yet undiscovered in research. These are varieties of sodium and other trace minerals (more than 60 of them) that are present in celery and work symbiotically and systematically with each other and with celery’s regular sodium to raise your body’s pH and rid toxic acids from every crevice of your body, including your gut. This process is ideal to cleanse and repair intestinal linings.
How To Make:
2 peaches, sliced
2 celery stalks, cut into thin slices
1/4 cup wild blueberries or regular blueberries
Arrange all the ingredients on a platter or bowl. Serve immediately.
