Mood & Chocolat Kale Chips Receipt (Part 2)

Mood – Everything about it (Part 1)

Animal production contains the richest sources of vitamin B3, so eating eggs in a predominantly vegetarian programme is a good way of ensuring your diet has enough of this vitamin, as we mentioned before eggs are high on the acid-forming, scale but are a rich source of niacin and so form part of the 30% daily allocation of acid-forming foods.

Other good vegetarian sources of niacin, include nutricional yeast, rice bran (whih is a great alternative to wheat bran), most whole grains (such as buckwheat, quinoa and rye) and sundried tomatoes, which can be rehydrated to bring out their full nutritional potential.

Chocolat Kale Chips

Makes 5 snack portion

  • 150g Kale leaves;
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder;
  • tbsp agave syrup;
  • 50 ml (2fl oz/scant 1/4 cup) coconut oil, melted a pinch of Himalayan pink salt.

Procedure

Preheat a dehydrator to 63C/145.4F. (Alternatively, put the oven on it’s lowest settings.)

Remove the kale leaves from their stalks and chop into 5cm (2in) pieces.

In a high-speed blender, add the raw cacao powder, agave syrup, coconut oil and salt, and blend until the mixture is smooth.

In a bowl, using your hands, coat the kale leaves in the rich mixture so they are well covered but not dripping. If you cover them too thickly they will not dry out properly and will end up chewy instead of crunchy.

Place on a tray in the dehydrator for 14 hours. (Alternatively, put pn the baking tray (cookie sheet) in the preheated oven but with the door ajar for 6-8 hours.)

Once dehydrated, the kale chip keep for a week in the airtight container.

Mood – Everything about it (Part 1)

Our body is like a machine that needs consuming food and water so we can “work” properly. So today I’ve decided to write about it, I’ve done some research, read books and I found a lot of good and bad things about it.

Starting for saying that depression is estimated in 2020 will be the second most diabling disease, with women being twice as likely to develop depression as man.

What we put into our digestive system has such effect on our Mood. Good food can take place of medication in severe cases, having an alkaline diet (Do you want to know ingredients that are healthy? ) can go along way to maintaining good mood, balanced self-esteem and emotional calm.

Advice that I give to all of you, stop drinking coffee for a couple weeks and witness the result of less anxiety and agitation, I’m sure that your body is going to accepted maybe with some hard times, but we need to think about our health in first place.

For the same reason that we need essencial fats for concentration and focus, you also need the full range of B vitamins as well as a good suply of proteins to balance levels of the serotonin and dopamine neurotransmilters in the brain.

All food source from animals, including goat’s, sheep’s cheese and eggs of all types, contains complete proteins.

Vegan people, it is necessary to find the non-vegetarian sources. Plant proteins is found anything that grows larger than it’s original self, as examples, sunflowers seeds into flowers, or walnuts and almonds into trees. It is the protein that allows them to grow and, once eaten, such proteins are broken down into the building blocks of amino acids, which can be easily utilised by our brains and bodies.
