Constipation is a major problem, more than people think it is. This is true from babies, children and adults. Some babies do not go for 1 week and unfortunately medically is considered ok. I do not know about you but if I do not go for a day I feel bloated and unwell. If you are one of these people who repel fruits or vegetables or salads, well if you want to eliminate toxins from your body, you need to drink plenty of water for an adult up to 2 liters and half of mineral water (non fizzy) and eat plenty of mixed vegetables and fruits. Some recommendation is from 5 to 10 pieces of varied fruits and vegetables a day, to get all the mixed nutrients that you need in your diet as well as going to the loo ok.
If you do not like fruits or vegetables, well that can be a lie for you as there must be some vegetables or fruits that you must like. Maybe you have not tried all the 100 or 1000 varied fruits and vegetables that are out there, apart from bananas which many people do like, there is much more. The fruits salad above, I made it with all the following fruits: cherries, blueberries, strawberries, cantaloupe, bananas, apples, apricots, prunes, and one freshly squeezed lemon, you can add one freshly squeezed orange juices to make it sweeter and to preserve it in the fridge for about 2 days. You can add yogurt of any kind to make it a delicious dessert for you and your children. You blend it with the orange juice and lemon juices and make ice lolly for the children to have as a dessert. That would make them have enough fruits for their day. Just a warning that if you have candida or yeast (fermented poo which smells acidic and diarrhea), then you can have a varied salad with up to 10 varied pieces of vegetables, such as green leafy vegetables (Cos lettuce, rockets, radicchio salad, any other green curly leafy vegetables, spinach, avocadoes, tomatoes, carrots, beetroot, artichokes, olives, and green beans or any other green leafy vegetables. The above will make you go to the loo everyday and give you most of the vitamins and minerals that you need in your daily life. If you have a health issue then this might not work and you need to see a nutritional therapist like me.
Enjoy your salads, whatever salads, fruits and vegetables you use and have a great summer. Enjoy the sunshine too and time outdoor for your daily dose of vitamin D!
