     *Sources of Calcium

   Many people feel that the best source of calcium is from milk or dairy products like butter, yogurt, or cheese. Some may be surprised to find that there are many vegetables that provide an excellent source of calcium. These calcium rich foods include Spinach, Alfalfa Sprouts, Kale, Collard Greens, Lettuce, Okra, Soybeans, Asparagus, Carrots, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Celery, and much, much more.

      * Eat Green every-day!

-          If not eaten Raw, lightly steam your Green veggies, but don’t overheat them. Preserve Life.

-          When eating food, you have to be aware of food-combinations, on the Internet you can find any food-combining chart that tells you what you can combine and what not. The wonderfull thing about Green Veggies is, that you can combine them all.

-          If you got a juicer, make a Green Juice, this will strengthen and rejuvenate your system. Try and do this on a daily basis,  be disciplined and make it part of your LifeStyle.

-          When eating starches or other heavy foods which are hard to digest, always have a big  Green salad with it. The Green veggies consist out of enzymes that are necessary for digestion.  Also try to eat your salad first.
