What is this?? And what do I do with it?
As a private chef and adventurer, I have circled the globe at least three times. Wherever I go I visit the locals and shop at the Market Square in the mornings for fresh local goods. Here I always come across new and interesting people and their goods. I LOVE it when I come across something I’ve never seen before. That is when I ask, “What is this? And, what do I do with it?” The funny thing is my new friend usually starts by telling me what it is good for. After that they tell me the many different ways to prepare and use it.
As a health-oriented chef, I am aware that all natural edibles offer some type of health benefit. I am also aware that every pharmaceutical drug got its start as a plant and is a synthetic form of a plant molecule with negative side effects. As Hippocrates said, “Let our food be our medicine and our medicine be our food.”
There are SO many health benefits we can receive by adding Aloe Vera to our lives either topically or internally.
Three very impressive benefits are;
• Increased Cognitive Function
• Wound Healing • Intercellular Rejuvenation
1 cup coconut water (check Nutritional Facts for 9g Sugar or lower)
2 inches of Aloe Vera Fillet inner gel
10-20 small oregano leaves
1 cup fresh blueberries
a scoop of your favorite shake powder
a huge handful of fresh Spinach, Sprouts and/ or Power Greens
How to fillet Aloe Vera
Slice a 1-2-inch section, stand it on end and slice off serrated edges.
Keeping it on the same edge, slice off the flatter face by cutting downward.
Still keeping it on the same edge, cut it in half longwise.
Lay it on its peel and remove the last peel as if you’re filleting a fish.
Save the peel. Rub the slippery inside of the peel on your skin after showering.
