“Lorena’s Blender Ice cream”
When teaching footzoning classes, the students always share successful recipes our families and friends love. Lorena, footzoning student, shared this recipe her family used as a favorite treat – and it stuck with my family as well. All five of us love this dairy-free clean “ice cream” that packs a nutritional powerhouse! The simple but powerful ingredients in this blissful creation cleanse the liver and flood it with glorious nutrients. The liver is related to so many functions in our bodies and is often largely responsible for our overall health or dis-ease. Here’s how these wondrous ingredients uplift this overworked organ:
Also known as pitaya, this blood-building fruit refreshes the cells of the liver deep to its core, helping it produce cells faster and slows down the aging of this hardworking organ. The rich red skin of the pitaya contains antioxidants to banish viruses in the liver, which relishes in the pitaya’s bioavailable glucose to help it function. This fruit is the star in Anthony William’s book Medical Medium: Liver Rescue for its many liver-cleansing properties. If you need any more convincing about dragon fruit – one of my sons is here for you! (He loves making “food videos”!)
This highly acidic fruit packed with vitamin C and beneficial chemical compounds cleanses mucus and debris from the liver, as described in Liver Rescue. Pineapple also contains enzymes that are useful for digestion and elimination.
This juicy fruit has a combination of fruit acid, mineral salts, and sugars that rejuvenate the liver, while the skins adhere to toxins in the intestinal tract and drive them out. Welcome peaches as they are high in iron, and your body uses iron to produce hemoglobin and myoglobin, proteins that carry oxygen in your body. It’s necessary for energy metabolism.
These sweet, delicious berries are a nutritional powerhouse and an all around amazing superfood. They are packed with Vitamins A , B-complex, & E and minerals such as manganese, iron, and zinc. They are rich in antioxidants which boosts their ability to rebuild, repair, and rejuvenate the body. They also have high levels of phenols and are packed with Vitamin C, helping ward off colds and flu. They are also well known for being beneficial for age related macular degeneration and vision related issues. Strawberries contain ellagic acid and flavonoids which are good for cardiovascular health and can help prevent heart disease, stroke, and and help to lower cholesterol. They are also fantastic weight loss food as they are low in calories and high in nutritional compounds that are vital for optimal health.
These sweet treasures are an ideal food for improved energy and brain function. Dates are a good source of vitamin A & B-complex and they are rich in minerals such as iron, calcium, manganese, copper, and potassium. They are known to help build bone and muscle strength and have been used for thousands of years by athletes to improve physical endurance, agility, and stamina. Dates contain anti-inflammatory and anti-infective properties, and have highly digestible fiber that can help prevent colon, prostate, lung, endometrial, breast, and pancreatic cancers. They are also known to help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, relieve constipation, improve anemia, and prevent macular degeneration.
