For this week I chose marinated green asparagus with fish. Let me explain the ingredients first:
Fish: an important source of proteins and good fats, which are so important for building connective tissue and our nervous system, including the brain. Furthermore, indispensable for the immune system and keeping cell walls flexible. Find here prevention for resistance, heart and blood vessels, cognition, muscles and joints. It also contains a good amount of selenium, iodine and vitamin D.
Asparagus contain vitamins B, C and E. Inulin promotes beneficial intestinal flora. Glutathione is a strong antioxidant.
Garlic is also referred to as a natural antibiotic with numerous positive effects.
Lemon is high in vitamins, especially vit C, trace elements and phytonutrients.
Olive oil, a healthy fat, an important supplier and storage of energy. High-quality olive oil has a very high content of polyphenols, anti-inflammatory and vascular-protective effect.
Peppers contain capsaicin, which has a positive effect on blood sugar levels, blood clotting and defense against free radicals.
Honey has been considered a natural remedy for thousands of years and is known for its effectiveness against pathogens such as viruses and bacteria. Manuka honey works best here, if it’s high in methylglyoxal (MGO). In general, honey is better the darker it is, due to higher amount pinostrobin.
