The 100 Day Reality Challenge



Studies show that 25% of all vegetables eaten in America and Europe were French fries!


Seriously though, have you ever heard of anything as easy as sprouting seeds? Just add water!   They are one of the most complete and nutritional of all foods that exist. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins. And
numerous
scientific studies have shown the importance of sprouts in
a healthy diet.




 This vegetable continues to gain vitamins after you harvest it. Sprouts are LIVING foods. Even after you
harvest
your sprouts and refrigerate them, they will continue to grow
slowly and
their vitamin content will  increase. Compare this with
store-bought
vegetables and fruits, which start losing their vitamin content
as soon
as they’re picked.


What can you sprout from seed?


lentils

chickpeas

mung beans

alfafa

barley

red clover etc


but not those red kidney beans,which are toxic

There are 100's of healthy fast food options. these are some of my personal favourites and why.

AVACADO
Eating avocado has many health benefits and have been shown to have a positive effect on cholesterol levels. In one study a seven-day diet rich in avocados, test subjects showed a 17% decrease in total serum cholesterol levels and a 22% decrease in both LDL (harmful cholesterol) and triglyceride levels. They also had an 11% increase in HDL (helpful cholesterol) levels.

Avocado has very high fat levels when compared to other fruit. Mostly monounsaturated fat, at 9 grams, and polyunsaturated at 2 grams. But avocado is used as a food item by itself, as an addition to other items (such as the California Roll; sushi), as a type of dip (Guacamole), or even as a primary ingredient in ice-cream.

Avocado has 60% more potassium than bananas, which makes them an excellent "sports" food and muscle cramp reliever. They are also rich in vitamin(s), B, E, and K. They are also high in fiber (75% insoluble and 25% soluble) with the average avocado having over 6 grams of fiber.

KIWI FRUITS are rich in Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C ( far more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene.

Studies, have also demonstrated additional health benefits to the respiratory tract. In particular. Shortness of breath was reduced by 32%,night time cough by 27%, severe wheeze by 41%, chronic cough by 25%, and runny nose by 28%. This results is not only traceable to the content in Vitamin C or Potassium, but in substances which are still largely unknown contained in kiwi fruit. These substances are most likely flavonoids that help protect cells from oxidative damage, and are therefore considered very helpful in protecting our DNA from mutations and damage.

The high content of dietary fiber helps improving any diseases such as diabetes, by controlling sugar levels, and colon cancer, since fiber binds to toxic compounds in the colon and helps us expel them.Fiber has also been proven to reduce cholesterol levels, improving the conditions of patients with cardiovascular diseases and lowering the probability of heart attacks.

PEANUT BUTTER
Mashed peanuts are loaded with minerals, zinc for immunity, and disease fighting selenium, as well as antioxidants to help repair workout-damaged muscles. Be careful when buying peanut butter, some companies make low-fat peanut butter, and take out heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and replace it with added sugar! Always read the lable. Some companies take out the healthy peanut oil and replace it with a cheaper sunflower oil!

RAW CARROTS thses are my nutritional heroes, they store a goldmine of nutrients. No other vegetable or fruit contains as much carotene as carrots, which the body converts to vitamin A. This is a versatile vegetable and a source of vitamins B and C as well as calcium pectate, that has been found to have cholesterol-lowering properties.

Raw carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamins (B,C,D,E).and potassium; they contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamine, folic acid, and magnesium. Cooked carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, a good source of potassium, and contain vitamin B6, copper, folic acid, and magnesium. Carrots also contain small amounts of essential oils, carbohydrates and nitrogenous composites. They are well-known for their sweetening, healing, diuretic, remineralizing and sedative properties.

Also most of the goodness is actually in, or just below the skin. Carrots are one of the best sources of carotene which is a strong antioxidant, but carrots also contain other compounds that are antioxidants. Many people do not realize that numerous phenolic compounds are located in the skin of fruit and vegetables, many of which are removed by peeling prior to processing.
