The “C” Salad
By Sirius B
Peace. We at The Good Life Laboratories have found a great way to provide your body with much needed nutrients to survive and ward off diseases. There’s a way you can get the same relief you get from a lot of “medicines” and “remedies” without the clinic or the hospital. No miracle drug over here. We simply suggest that you hit the grocery store, (a farm, an urban garden, or a produce market would be ideal) scoop up some veggies, hit the kitchen, and make a salad.
You can save electricity or gas because you don’t even have to cook. Just about any combination of vegetable (or fruit) will do. Eating healthy does not have to be as expensive as you think. You can spend about a $20 on most veggies you favor and make different salads for different occasions. A salad can be a side dish. A salad can be a snack. And depending on the content and size of the salad, it could be a meal as well.
Believe it or not raw fruits and vegetables provide your body with all you need to live a healthy life.
Good health=The Good Life.
Salads bring an awesome balance to one who either has no desire to be healthy or the one who wants to be healthy but is not disciplined enough to achieve what they “think” is a healthy life. People don’t associate healing with vegetables. Getting full to satisfy hunger should not be the only thing that you and your body get out of eating food. Fruits and vegetables have a chemical and molecular relationship with the human body that we continue to ignore as humans. We feel that if people realized what these vegetables do, people would eat them more.
We have been told to eat vegetables since we were children. But when we watched cartoons we would get cereal, Spaghettios, sweets and candy. Most children (or adults) probably don’t look at fruits and vegetables as “snacks” or “treats”. Give a child some grapes or some cucumber slices as a treat. They and their cute little bodies will begin to be programmed to a natural nutritional cycle.
Aside from the propaganda, people put taste over responsibility a lot when it comes to eating healthy. Not to mention, some people can’t cook, therefore they are not making vegetables enjoyable to eat. One thing’s for sure, you eat and feed your children what you were fed (unless you are breaking a chain!). My sons love and eat salads often. They have fruits for snacks because my mother was a scholarly nurse and raised me the same way.
So- EAT A SALAD. And try not to put meat in your salad especially if you already have it somewhere else in your meal.
Salad: a COLD dish of mixed vegetables although sometimes cooked. 2. A vegetable suitable for eating RAW. What we at The Good Life consider a true salad is a mixture of desired “raw fruits and vegetables that were hopefully grown from the Earth. 2. A garden in a bowl.
As we said earlier, you can mix and match just about any fruits or vegetables you want. When you know what nutrients certain veggies provide, you can cater a salad to your personal health needs. Let’s get the ball rolling with a simple list of ingredients for today’s salad. My wife suggested that we make a salad with all of the veggies starting with the letter “C”. So let’s call this salad “The C Salad”.
Since we’re making a raw vegetable salad you already know its gonna hit you off with a lot of vitamins and minerals. The veggies being uncooked is an additional health bonus. You get every enzyme your body needs for the proper digestion of food. Some of the vegetables you eat aid in digestion as well. We tellin’ you, a green salad is a win-win for the body. So put a big check mark in the healthy eating box! Aiight, let’s see what ingredients we came up with starting with the letter C.
Disclaimer- Rise In Power to the ancestor Dr. Sebi. He taught about the electric diet, and how acidic foods and hybrid foods are to be strictly avoided. Dr. Sebi’s works made me realize th
at there are many different levels to this health journey. To get to the promise land of perfect health, most of us must take little steps. It can be very frustrating to find out that nearly all the foods you once thought were healthy- really aren’t. It’s already hard enough to get some people to drink water to save their lives, let alone eat a salad. So we figure that we’ll start with raw, familiar vegetables.
Dr. Sebi stresses that carrots are a hybrid vegetable of Queen Anne's Lace and wild carrot and should not be eaten. Some seeders from Holland did a mad experiment on carrot seeds around the 1800s to make them orange for national patriotic color reasons. But even so- carrots still provide:
Vitamin A (eyes/sight), Folic Acid (cell maintenance), and Vitamin K (bones/blood clotting). They also have Iron (blood making), potassium (heart/muscles), and manganese (regulates blood sugar).
Cauliflower has 77% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C. (protector from all diseases). It has Vitamins B1, 2, 3, 5, and 6. It has potassium and manganese. Cauliflower has been known to be an awesome detoxifier. It is also said to be great “Brain food” (nerves, memory, etc.). We overstand if cauliflower is not your favorite. We will allow you to break the “C” code in exchange for broccoli, arugula, or kale. They provide the same nutrients that cauliflower does.
Green Celery (yellow celery is a hybrid) has Vitamin A, B2 (Riboflavin), B6 (balancing minerals), Folic Acid, Vitamins C, D, E, and K. It has iron, phosphorus (kidney function), potassium, choline, zinc, and magnesium. Celery is mostly water and fiber. It was originally used as medicine. It wasn’t until the 1600,s that anyone started taking celery seriously as a food. The seeds of celery aid heavily in maintaining the proper “blood pressure”.
Cucumbers have Vitamins A, B1 (carbohydrate metabolism), B6, C, D (gland nutrients), and K. It also has calcium (blood clotting), potassium (blood pressure), Choline (Liver function), and magnesium (enzyme activity-digestion). Cucumbers are intracellular electrolytes that are also good for skin care, dehydration (95% water), and weight loss.
Red Cabbage has Vitamin A (maintains tissue health), is 95% Vitamin C. One cup of red cabbage covers 56% of the recommended daily intake. It has Vitamin E (circulation/lungs), and Vitamin K (nervous system). It also has iron, potassium, magnesium and manganese. Red Cabbage is a top notch in cancer prevention. Its high levels of antioxidant components make it a serious warrior against the deadly disease.
Chicory has Vitamins A, B6, C, E, and K. It has iron, folic acid, zinc, magnesium, manganese, calcium, and potassium. Chicory aids in digestion, prevents heartburn, reduces arthritis pains, detoxifies the liver and gall bladder. It also prevents bacterial infections. It boosts the immune system and reduces the chances for heart disease. It’s a natural sedative. (Note-chicory is kind've dry and bitter- substitute this with a leafy green of your choice for taste).
Cashews have Vitamins B6, E, and K. It has copper, zinc, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, folic acid, and selenium. The copper and iron in cashews work together to help the body form and utilize red blood cells to keep blood vessels, nerves, the immune system and bones healthy. It has lutein and zeaxanthin to protect eyes from light damage.
Cranberries (dried) have Vitamins A, C, E, and K. They also carry potassium and manganese. Cranberries are known for their antioxidants that fight cardiovascular disease and cholesterol control. What a lot of people don’t know about cranberries is that they too are a very high source of Vitamin C.
Let’s have a good drink to compliment the C Salad. We are going to keep the “C” theme and recommend that you pour yourself a tall glass of coconut water.
The nutrients fall right in line with your snack or meal. It has all the B-complex vitamins and Vitamin C. It also has iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and zinc. Coconut water has electrolytes so it is excellent for battling dehydration. It can help you lower your high blood pressure. Trying to lose weight? Drink an 8 ounce glass of coconut water 3 to 4 times a week. It boosts fat metabolism and is also great for headaches because it is high in magnesium.
Pick a seasoning you like (paprika, parsley, garlic powder, etc.) At The Good Life, we season our salads with lemon pepper seasoning. Then we pour a little apple cider vinegar or lemon juice on ‘em to do it up too. You can season to your taste. Do you! We use salad dressings as well but they can contain saturated fats and unnecessary sugars that could alter the mission a bit. However, we encourage you to eat a salad in whatever way satisfies you. The overall objective is to eat raw vegetables so that your health can get better.
Knowledge is power. When you know what you are doing the wisdom activates the manifestation. I hope and pray that you will one day join me in the liberation a salad gives to the body. Once you eat them regularly, your body will sync itself with the natural power and radiance raw vegetables give.
P.S. Raw vegetables are gifts from the God(s). We figure that if what you eat comes out of the same planet your creator made for you, the chances of that food being the right food for you are extremely high. EAT A SALAD.
