Breaking down my #multivitamin in a bowl salad 2-4 ingredients at a time this post is for the first 2! This is a 21 ingredient dish and I will share not all but some of the key info you need on why I use each ingredient! Look back at original post (just oic if the salad) for the full ingredient list! 🥒🥦🥑🍆🍅🍋🌶 ingredient #1 Red bell pepper: the female has 4 bumps and sweeter, the male 3 bumps and better for cooking.
This type Has highest amount of #VitaminC This powers up your #immunesystem system & skin! contain several phytochemicals and carotenoids, particularly beta-carotene, providing you with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefitsThe capsaicin in bell peppers has multiple health benefits including studies that show that it reduces ‘bad’ cholesterol, controls diabetes, brings relief from pain and eases #inflammation.. Certain enzymes in #bellpeppers, such as lutein, protect the #eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration later in life.
Having vitamin C with #spinach, is a wise choice since It can help the iron absorb! #Plantbased #iron needs vitamin c! Hence, why its mixed in this #salad!
Ingredient #2 #Jicama
The health benefits of jicama include its ability to help you manage #weight, optimize #digestion, boost the immune system, prevent various types of #cancer, increase #energy levels, manage #diabetes and build strong bones. Jicama also helps increase circulation, lower blood pressure levels, and boost #brain function.
One of the main features I like is that it’s rich source of a soluble #fiber called oligofructose inulin, which is a sweet, inert #carbohydrate that does not metabolize into simple sugars. Point out if not obvious:
diabetics, jicama can be a great way to have some sweet food without worrying about blood sugar fluctuation. #Cinnamon is a good choice on the jicama as well for a sweet treat!
The minerals like #manganese , magnesium, iron, and copper found in jicama mean that this root #vegetable can be a major booster for our #bone mineral density. These minerals are essential for building strong, new bones and healing any damage to existing bones. #pasadena #chinohills #westlakevillage
