| PLUM & ALMOND SALAD | Eating plums on a regular basis can help bring benefits such as improved vision, healthier skin, healthy brain functioning, regulated digestive tract, reduced inflammation, resistance against colds and infections, and improved metabolism. Plums are especially good for digestive disorders such as IBS, gastritis, and constipation. The magnesium in plums works as a natural tranquilizer which can sooth your nerves and also work as a catalyst to reinstate your natural REM sleep.
Spinach creates an alkaline environment in the body and provides highly absorbable micronutrients to the nervous system. It also binds onto and removes the jelly-like viral waste matter in the liver that can contribute to mystery weight gain and mystery heart flutters. It’s epecially good at rejuvenating skin and helping to turn around conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Nuts (especially walnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, and cashews) hold important trace minerals such as zinc, selenium, and manganese. Almonds in particular strengthen nerves and bones.
