INSIGHT & INTUITION: MEDICINE FOR TODAY'S WOMAN

Spicy Asian Coleslaw

Spicy Asian Coleslaw

Spicy Asian coleslaw is a super simple recipe that can create a quick meal for almost any occasion. I love to use spicy Asian coleslaw as a side dish, but my whole family also loves to stuff it in rice paper wraps for a delicious and easy wrap (a perfect grab-n-go).

 

But the best part about spicy Asian coleslaw…the incredible amount of healing foods – it’s packed with nutrition!

 

Red Cabbage

Red cabbage is an amazing healing food. In fact, the coloring agents that give the cabbage the red-purple hue are incredible disease fighting pigments. The sulfur in the cabbage delivers the phytochemicals from the pigments to the liver. Red cabbage is one of the most helpful healing foods to rejuvenate the liver. Red cabbage not only helps reduce scar tissue in the liver, it also helps to minimize pathogens in the intestinal tract.

Green Cabbage

Green cabbage provides an abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemical sulfur compounds. Green cabbage is also incredible for joint support and helping with osteoporosis.

Bell Peppers

Bell peppers contain six times as much vitamin C as oranges. They also contain a high amount of vitamin A and beta carotene, which help boost the immune system and improve vision.

 

Bell peppers have also been shown to help prevent blood clots and reduce the risk of heart attacks due to their high content of potassium, fiber, thiamine, beta-carotene, folate, zeaxanthin, and lycopene. Additionally, bell peppers have been show to help lower cholesterol levels and are beneficial to the brain. They have been shown to help strengthen memory and reduce brain fog.

 

Furthermore, bell peppers are an excellent weight-loss food. They have a high fiber content which helps curb appetite and keep you energized.

 

Onions

Onions contain sulfur compounds that strengthen the immune system, brain, and nervous system.  These compounds also help to detoxify heavy metals from the body such as mercury, cadmium, and lead.

 

Furthermore, onions are the highest food source of quercetin, a potent antioxidant that can help prevent blood clots, asthma, sinus infections, bronchitis, atherosclerosis, and diabetes.

 

Carrots

Carrots refuel the liver with the essential glucose and vitamins it needs. They also inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms and rejuvenate your hair, skin, and nails.

 

Apples

Apples have incredible anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce your viral and bacterial load. The phytochemicals in apples are quite literally brain food – feeding neurons and increasing electrical activity. In addition, they contain phytochemicals that are responsible for heavy metal and radiation detoxification, as well as glutamine and serine – amino acids that help remove MSG from the brain. A true brain food!

 

Red apples, in particular, are a very alkaline fruit that has the ability to quench thirst on a cellular level by providing living water to support the liver’s ability to hydrate.

 

Equally important, the fruit acids in apples (both malic and tartaric acids) help cleanse the liver by dispersing toxic films that build up inside the liver’s storage banks. Furthermore, apples starve out bacteria, yeast, mold, other funguses, and viruses from the liver. This makes red apples an incredible liver detoxifier.

 

Sprouts and Microgreens

Sprouts and microgreens are packed with all of the same nutrients as the vegetables they would eventually become. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytochemical compounds. One of the amazing benefits of eating sprouts and microgreens is that they are far easier to digest, thus their nutrient content can get to work faster.

 

“The most important role that sprouts and microgreens play is to bring back vitality to people who are always exhausting themselves for others.”

Anthony William, Sprouts & Microgreens Blog

Sprouts and microgreens revitalize the reproductive system, and they give a new mom who hasn’t been getting enough sleep, a much-needed boost. They help to restore and rebalance hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone as well as help to reignite the hormone production in the rest of the endocrine system, particularly the adrenal glands and thyroid.

 

Sprouts and microgreens are also incredibly beneficial for the brain as they are high in mineral salts which are involved in neurotransmitter chemical production. Further, they support brain health with amino acids and enzymes, help to remove toxic heavy metals from the brain, and help to strengthen neurons.

 

As an incredible source of trace minerals, including iron, iodine, selenium, zinc, copper, manganese, sulfur, magnesium, chromium, and molybdenum, sprouts and microgreens are incredible for the skin. Incorporating these in your diet on a regular basis can help to reverse the signs of aging. Plus, they are a fantastic source of elevated biotics, which are a critical part of your body’s production of vitamin B12.
