PURE VEGGIES

SIMPLE COOKING-PURE VEGETABLE | EATING AS MEDICINE

Pure vegetables for pure health

„Eating as medicine“. An Italian study shows that valuable ingredients such as carotenoid, polyphenols and vitamin C are not necessarily lost when heated or cooked. Vegetables should be treated as gently as possible, processed fresh and only cooked „al dente“ or firm to the bite. Eating vegetables and fruits are good as we all know. I agree we have a kind of satiety sensor in our stomach. If it is empty, a hunger hormone called ghrelin is released, triggering the „foraging“ impulse in the brain. Only when the stomach is filled to a certain extent does the impulse decrease again. If you mainly eat foods with a high energy density, there is a risk of consuming more calories than are consumed with all known negative consequences. In my case because of fatty liver and type 2 diabetes, consumption of more vegetables and fruits on the other hand has a crowding out effect on high calorie dishes and in this way indirectly protects against obesity and better for me.

🇦🇹FEELING LIKE…..

Feeling like sorry 😐 for myself since July 25, 2019. The day I tried to be strong but it doesn’t work for me.🥺 I thought I am, until now I’m still fighting. I should always remind myself:

“Don’t let the critics let you down.” ——-unknown

“Choose the hills wisely on which you must do battle.” ——-unknown

Thanks God of reminding me,

He is my refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore I will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though it’s water roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. • Psalm 46:1-3

Slowly but surely my blog helps me out with my struggles. It makes me happy. 😌 Every time I want to post or write something here it eases me.

Today I want to share my August- instant- telegram that partly helped me out with my worries about my job.
