feeling “fruity” good :)

i’m feeling “fruity” good today….he he he

i got my new meal plan which will be for 2 weeks and i’m back to the “all fruits and vegetables” diet.

for this day, i had plums and bowls of seedless grapes for breakfast, lunch and dinner

burp! burp! burp!

eureka!!! i found these interesting facts:

  •    Plums: They are high in carbohydrates, low in fat, low in calories, an excellent source of vitamin A, calcium, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, potassium and fiber. They are widely known for their laxative effects because the fruit contains sorbitol or sugar alcohol. Plums are also known to contain a high content of unique phytonutrient called neochloregenic acid and chlorogenic acid. These are anti-oxidants classified as phenols.

 

Phenols are damage-preventing substance particularly effective in neutralizing a destructive oxygen radical and they help prevent oxygen-based damage to fats, such as those comprising a substantial portion of our brain cells or neurons.

Grapes: they contain powerful antioxidants and resveratrol, which is known to help prevent both the narrowing and hardening of arteries. it also contains ellagic acid, which has anti-cancer properties. but they do, however, have a very high sugar content and should therefore be eaten in moderation.

grapes are 65-85% water, 10-33% sugar and has phlobaphene, gallic acid, silicic acid, quercetine, anin, glucosides – mono delphinidin and delphinidin, fruit acids, like apple acid, salicilic acid, phosphoric acid, lemon acid, amber acid, formic acid and a little bit of oxalic acid, pectins, tannic substances, salts of potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, cobalt, iron and vitamins B1, B2,В6, В12, А, С, Р, РР, K, folic acid and enzimes. whoa! that’s a mouthful!

grapes have been used for treating metabolism disorders, liver, kidney and lung disorders and cardiovascular problems. grapes improve metabolism and have diuretic, anti inflammation, light laxative and inducing perspiration effect. 

grapes help with nervous exhaustion, hypertension, high blood pressure, bronchitis and gout. eating grapes strengthens your body when you need to recover from anemia, gastritis with high acidity, metabolism disorder, chronic insomnia and constipation.
