NUTRITION AND YOUR HEALTH

What we eat today can affect our health tomorrow and years to come. We may think we’re getting away with it, but for most people it catches up with them. By the time it shows up, it may be a serious, or even a life-threatening issue. For others, it’s a slow, steady decline of feeling progressively more unwell. What you eat can affect these issues directly:

Reduce the risk of some diseases, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Some cancers
  • Osteoporosis
  • Reduce high blood pressure
  • Lower unhealthy cholesterol (LDL; triglycerides)
  • Improve your well-being
  • Improve your ability to fight off illness; especially important during a pandemic
  • Improve your ability to recover from illness or injury
  • Increase your energy level

Chocolate Chip Mint Ice Cream

  • 4-5 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
  • 2-4 cups fresh baby spinach*
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dark chocolate chips, chocolate bark or cacao
  • Several drops of liquid stevia
  • A splash of plant milk such as almond milk or coconut milk, as needed

Directions

1. Place the chocolate in the food processor and pulse until broken up into small pieces. Remove and set aside.

2. Place the frozen bananas cut in chunks, spinach and mint extract in the food processor and process until the spinach resembles a paste. You may need to stir the mixture by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to stick on the sides of the bowl. If needed, add a splash of non-dairy milk to make it easier to blend. Or, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter for about 60 minutes so they are easier to work with. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a knife.

3. Taste the batter and add extra mint extract or stevia as desired. When satisfied, add the chocolate chips and pulse just enough to mix them into the batter.

5. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. You can serve immediately as soft serve, or place in the freezer for an hour for a frozen dessert. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, let it sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to serving, depending on room temp.

Tip: Because spinach is 92% water, the more spinach you add, the more the ice cream will resemble sorbet due to the water crystals. I used four cups here – seeing as I had so much on hand – but feel free to adjust the amount to your own liking.

JUICE FAST GETS RESULTS

Here’s Raoul’s story firsthand:

“I want to let you know that we tried one of your one week juice fasts last year. I’d had a strange “jowlyness” under my chin for a while, like a sort-of double chin or fattiness. This disappeared completely after the juice fast and has not returned since. Amazing result !!  All the best and thanks again for the excellent work you do!”
