When Are Vegetables Better Than Water?

Yes, water is amazing and we should drink a lot every day! But, there are also a lot of people who claim they “don’t like to drink water.” No judgement πŸ™‚ I have some good news if you can relate!

When it comes to long lasting hydration, that can be accomplished with a steady intake of fruits and vegetables!

Yes, you can eat your water. And you should!

Vegetables and fruits are key for lasting hydration in the body because of one key component: FIBER!

The human body is 70-80% water and it’s really good at processing pure water. It goes in and out quickly!

Vegetables, on the other hand, take longer for processing/digestion.

The fiber in fruits and vegetables holds the water inside of us longer.

At least one full serving of fruits and vegetables a day will help your body stay moisturized.

Keep it fresh too! Tin canned fruit and vegetables are not nearly as good for your body system!

Remember, all body organs benefit from proper hydration. πŸ’§ Stay thirsty, Lighters.

Sage Is Healthy – Inside and Out

Sage is an herb that is known for several different things. It can help out nutritionally, physically, spiritually, and other ways too. This article is a good list: 12 health benefits and uses of sage.

Sage is very well-known as a tool that is used to clean the air / atmosphere. Any stuffy places will be refreshed by burning sage. The smoke actually disinfects too – it kills bacteria in the air. More specifically, it’s the essential oils that become airborne that do the cleansing. We can thank the powerful sage essential oil for that.

Of course, a dry bundle of whole sage leaves is not the only form it’s found in. As an herb, rubbed and/or ground sage is found in many spice cabinets. The savory flavor goes well with comforting foods.

Fresh sage is really interesting – the leaves are soft like plant-based velvet. If you need to smudge your house in a emergency and you don’t have any sage bundles, you can boil fresh sage leaves and use the steam to do what you need to do.

Consuming sage in the form of a tea is great to fight inflammation in the body’s digestive system. The cleansing effects that sage brings to an environment also extends to the environment of your body. Be consistent with your sage consumption and your immune system will thank you. It comes in capsules to make it easier to eat a lot of. Remember, gaining benefits from herbs comes down to

1. Eating them consistently,

2. Over a respectable period of time.

Sage also smells wonderful and will cover up almost any other smell, for example burnt food or tobacco smoke.

Don’t leave hot sage unattended because sometimes it’s still smouldering when it should have gone out a while ago.

Tomatillos!

These fruits (or are they vegetables?) were a first time buy for me. Like many, I often saw tomatillos in the produce section and passed by without a second thought. Well, today I gave it that second thought. They were on sale for $.99 cent a pound!

A stranger saw me randomly choosing some of these golf-ball shaped Earth foods and he had something to say.

“I’ve only seen 2 people buying these,” he said. “Me and you.”

I replied, “Well, that’s interesting because this is my first time!”

He was surprised and immediately began to give me cooking tips. Namely, he told me to roast them. Roast until the skins get “real black” then peel it off and add to chili.

I thanked him for the suggestion. Because I probably would have eaten it raw.

At the word raw, he made a scrunched-up face.

“Nah, dont do that,” he said. “They’re not very good that way.”

“One more thing, sir.” I thought I’d better ask an important question while in the midst of an experienced tomatillo eater. “How do you know when they’re ripe?”

His reply made us both laugh.

“They’re always ready.”

It was cool to meet that guy.

They smell like grass.

Of course, I ate some raw when I got home.

It tastes like sour citrus at first, then a grassy flavor comes through as well.

I like it. They’re a member of the nightshade family, which would explain the green tomato appearance.

I don’t make chili very often so I won’t be taking that guys suggestion. But this roasted tomatillo salsa looks tasty, yeah?

Thanks for reading.
