Nettles are a super food, a life saver and sometime are a superhero . Whenever you hit rock bottom from these illnesses, the body must be brought back to life with not just some sleep and light food. You need a great pick me up smoothie. AgroWeb.org will introduce you a miracle cure against flue, seasonal viruses and cold: Nettle and Berry smoothie.
Nettle makes a beautiful meal with amazing nutritional value and medicinal properties that get you hooked. This little (although it can grow to a crazy height) nettle is one of the most powerful detoxifiers known to human. By being a diuretic it works it´s wonders eliminating a load of toxins through the urinary tract. This is why it is commonly used with people who have kidney related diseases/problems to strengthen the kidneys. The stinging Nettle Urtica dioica help rid the connective tissue of toxins. The connective tissue loads up on toxins from our food, drinks, overall habits and environmental toxins since it is the most stable place for the body to store these. As the years go by and we do not care to detoxify the connective tissue then problems can arise.
Including foods that are mildly detoxifying in your daily diet is a smart one, honey! For you that are having problems with pollen allergies at this time of year, nettle can help! Wooho! So put on some gloves and go foraging!
AgroWeb’s recipe is extremely basic and easy as possible for your stomach.
2 large smoothies
3 cup Nettle, roughly chopped
1 large banana
1 cup oat milk/almond milk/other veggie milk
1.2 cup mixed frozen berries
0.5 tsp pure vanilla
10 drops stevia concentrate
1 organic lemon, zest & juice
1. Rinse and roughly chop the nettles and add it to the blender along with all other ingredients.
2. Blend thoroughly (about 1-2 minutes depending on your blender) this makes the stings disappear and it breaks down the cellular walls of the nettles which makes the nutrition more available for your body to absorb.
3. Add some frozen berries and say cheers!
Voilá, a few smoothies like this, plenty of rest and you’ll now that life actually HAS returned. This is the amazing power of the stinging nettle./AgroWeb.org
