I think my grandmother experienced old age, because she stuck to a few simple rules.
cilantro, mint, thyme, calendula, nettle, rosehip … grandmother drank herbal drinks several times a day, regardless of the season outside. Even during the summer he wanted to make hot tea, to my surprise, it seemed more refreshing than colder drink.
Later I understood the reason for this. The secret of hot tea is simple – that dilates blood vessels and increases perspiration, and helps the excess heat away. So that’s the way the body cools. Therefore, in hot countries all people track to cool hot tea.
In spring and summer they had one or two fruits, which were currently in season, or slice of bread, homemade cottage cheese / cheese and tomato -. Obtained directly from the garden
She says they should only be used plants growing in their homeland.
Their winter salads were beets, turnips, carrots, cabbage or some delicious homemade pickles.
Do not forget apples and pears, which are eaten fresh or cooked in an oven. In winter there was Sunday without pumpkin baked grandmother, which she said was the perfect dessert.
In the coldest months of the year, she did something she has also ordered a salad. In a bowl raw tomato sauce, fresh chopped leeks and a tablespoon of oil is poured. You can not imagine how delicious it is.
On Saturday afternoon, also met in the house of one of them, drinking Turkish coffee combined with homemade sweets. It was these two days a week when my grandmother consume anything that has refined sugar.
She lived from morning to night, day after day, day after day, so it was always in a good spiritual condition.
And after reading this, you will say, “Yes., But lived in another time, the food was different, the tension was smaller and cleaner environment-” And you’re right, but that does not stop striving to live a simple and healthy way, and my favorite grandmother Spasuna made.
