Paleo Raw Food Diet Benefits Food Enzymes and Glycemic Index
Paleo raw food diet is plant based. Cooking foods above approximately 116 degrees F destroys foods enzymes. Enzymes are actually foods life force and aids in digestion and food absorption in the body. Fruits and vegetables not only provide natural enzymes but tend to have low glycemic indexes. The glycemic index measures the amount of starch and sugar in foods.
Raw foods are actually unprocessed as well as uncooked plant foods: fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, seeds, grains, beans, nuts, dried fruit, as well as seaweed. When foods are cooked above approximately 116 degrees F foods natural enzymes are destroyed. Enzymes aids in the digestion and absorption in the body’s digestion system. Cooking foods is actually believed to reduce the nutritional value of food.
Importance of Enzymes:
Recognized as “Life-Force” as well as “Energy” of foods.
Enzymes assist in digestion, absorption and elimination of foods.
Cooked food diminishes foods enzymes. Or cooked foods are actually enzyme-less. Not granting the body the maximum nutritional utilization. Enzyme-less cooked foods the body’s pancreas compensates by producing digestive enzymes. Cooked food can over work or stress the pancreas demand for production of digestive enzymes. Conversely raw plants naturally have digestive enzymes reducing demands on pancreas
Vegetable and Fruits Low Glycemic Index
Glycemic Index measures carbohydrates levels and effect carbohydrates break down glucose in the bloodstream. Low glycemic foods produce a small fluctuation in blood glucose and insulin. Conversely, high glycemic foods rapidly spike glucose levels. The pancreas has to secrete more insulin to bring blood levels to normal. Foods high in glycemic index and cooked foods can over stress the pancreas.
Vegetable and fruits have low sugar and starch contents.

Green Smoothie Tropical
Image by Barry Gourmet and Raw Beverage and Salad Dressing Approx: 2 min. for 1 to 2 people Green Smoothie Tropical A Barry Gourmet & Raw Signature Ingredients for the Green Smoothie Tropical: 1 half cup of chopped young or mature broccoli 1 Half cup of chopped loosely mixed pungent fresh herbs of equal parts of Basil,Mint,Parsley. Optional pinch of fresh herbs of Sage,Rosemary needles,and Fennel 4 open caps or 1 level teaspoon of your favorite powdered green Super Food? I chose Spirulina. You can use the following short list of Super Green Food examples: Powdered Chlorella,Wheat Grass,Barley Grass,Sea Vegetable Powder (Sea Weed) of any kind with out any fillers. Cut a 2 inch thick across of fresh tropical Pineapple , and discard the skins. Cut a 2 inch thick down the middle or 4 inch thick at the end of a fresh tropical Papaya. Your choice to discard the skins? Some times I keep the skins on if I know its organic and not GMO . If its growing in my garden I include the skins as most of the fiber and valuable nutrition of any fruit and vegetable is just under the skin. One whole fresh tropical Coconut or coconut juice. If you buy coconut juice from the store it will most likely be pasteurized with heat that kills life giving enzymes and heat sensitive vitamins like C.When giant food manufactures take away our nutrition mechanically this way or through pasteurization ,the food Giant knows that the product is deficient and denatured so the company must put back the missing vitamins and minerals with synthetics for better marketing on their labels to you, and to us the consumer. The Food Giant knows that high volume, longer shelf life,foods that cannot spoil or parish is convenient for us to buy at much higher costs to you and everyone else. I will get into this more on another post . If Coconut Juice is not available you can substitute with pure water. Fill your glass blender half or one third full of coconut juice with the inside coconut meat scraped out and added. This last ingredient will send your smoothie into heavenly bliss for the taste department. This Queen of fruits is not easy to find in the West ,but check in your local Asian Supermarket for them and you cant miss them if they are there. They are round with Dark Purple thick skins with a greenish stem with a collar of small round stiff leaves. About the size of a Lemon or Orange the firm skins can be easily pinched to test for freshness and when opened you will see a beautiful cluster of creamy white fleshy seeds called the Mangosteen. Yes in the Western market the imported fruit from South East Asia will cost much higher if you can find them, but try to compare the price with the packaged products you find sold on line or on the store shelf to make an informed decision. Take into account the packaging and marketing cost ,with price and nutritional value. I believe the whole food wins out in the end but I let you decide? The down side to all this in my opinion is that the USDA, and FDA of the United States has forced the Thai Agricultural sector to impose radiation treatments of all Mangosteen Fruits coming into the USA , in exchange for a share of the US Market.This was done in fear of bringing in the fruit fly from Thailand. The fact is food that has undergone Radiation treatment does not Sprout any more. The seed is effectively dead, and the chemistry of the fruit as been altered in such away that in effect the produce has been denatured, and there is no long term human studies on the effect of food Radiation Treatments. For example most of imported dry spices are treated with radiation and they like the Mangosteen , are never Labeled as such to inform you and me , the consumer. Some dry herb companies if you noticed are now advertising on their labels that “Our product has not been E radiated” When you see that kind of Label then buy it, or buy localy dried herbs and not imported, or do what I do purchase fresh living herbs grown localy. This problem also applies to foods grown with GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) Never Labeled and mostly found in processed packaged foods.It is like we are just one great experiment every time we enter into a grocery store? I just had to touch on this important subject above and with out further ado I continue the ingredients of your Green Smoothie Tropical. Just add the inside of 3 to 4 whole Mango fleshy seeds and place them all into your glass blender. General Note for Taste ! For adding taste and sweetness to any green smoothie the Banana and the Mangosteen in my opinion is in a neck and neck tie in my taste department. Fresh Pineapple and Papaya and coconut are close seconds. Apple and Pear is also good as well. Method for Green Smoothie Tropical: Just add your Super Greens,Pineapple,Papaya,Broccoli,and chopped mixed green herbs to your glass blender filled to the top. Do not worry if you have lots left over I have a delicious plan for you? Blend your ingredients together , and taste with your eyes closed to focus your senses into your taste buds. Are you smiling I want to know ? because I tested this smoothie on all my friends and the reaction was very good. If you have left over ingredients or you wish to add more to it you have the opportunity to make a fantastic delicious Tropical Salad. How to make your Tropical Smoothie Salad: You can easily put all your left over tropical fruits and Green vegetables together into your serving bowl and create the following.

Raw unfiltered Honey with Bee Pollen is a very complex formula of protein amino acids ,with vitamins and minerals for good health. Apple Cider Vinegar is reputed to help people to produce more hydrochloric Acid in the stomach for better Nutrition . Note that as people grow older our bodies produce much less Hydrochloric Acid. Lemon and Lime Juice is very Alkaline, high in vitamins C and good for over all health. Coconut Juice and its meat will never make you fat , just look at all the countries where coconuts are grown. South East Asian people are by far mostly lean especially in up country but sadly today it is changing with the introduction of Western Fast Food outlets popping up every where. Coconut is a different kind of saturated fat , that actually helps you to lose weight . Papaya is a tropical fruit high in the phyto chemical Lycopene that gives the Papaya its orange red color same as tomatoes and water mellon. Papaya also provides loads of enzymes called Pa-pain that will assist your body with the digestion of food proteins and will further give your digestive organs such as the pancreas a much needed break as well. In my garden Papaya is growing every where naturally by a happy accident through composting my kitchen scraps. A very hardy plant to grow under the right tropical conditions. Pineapple is loaded with the proteolytic enzyme called Bromelain found mostly down the center of the fruit ,which breaks down protein. Often when I serve Seafood , Eggs , or Poultry I will have chunks of Pineapple and Papaya near by or on the main course itself to assist the body for better digestion. Pineapple is anti- inflammatory and used as a good weapon for effective weight loss. Growing Your Own Pineapple? Did you know that it is not that difficult to grow Pineapple your self under the right conditions like indoors with lots of sun near a window? When you purchase your Pineapple in the store or market look for the following. For me it is easy where I live in Phuket Thailand. I cut the crown off but leave at least 2 or 3 inches of pineapple fruit attached and place the flat side on top of potted soil. It took about 6 months in my garden to see a 6 inch long and 5 inch wide new pineapple to grow ,but it was worth it after tasting it. Lets start from the very beginning with my Pineapple Notes : Check for a Pineapple that is firm and not too soft to the touch as soft means the Pineapple is overly too ripe, and when you place your nose next to this fruit you should be able to smell the notable fragrance otherwise the fruit is not ripe enough ,with practice and help from the vendor you will quickly know from experience the gem among the bunch. The leaves should be green and uniform in shape with a bit of yellow color at the base line is OK . Leaves that appear discolored , brown, grayish,and small grayish spots found at the base of the leaves would indicate infestation from scale insects, so choose another one if that is the case. The leaf should be able to be pulled off with some resistance, and keep in mind that there are so many varieties of Pineapple around the world so I would ask your vendor where the fruit came from and even ask for their assistance for picking a good one out for you, the Thai vendors are so helpful to me this way and its good for repeat business for them. I love my pineapple so it is not uncommon for me to bring half a dozen or so into my home. Next ask your self how many you would like to grow and make sure that you have lots of natural sunlight with large windows , the larger the better as Pineapples need lots of Sun. Prepare your Container Pot : I like to use large clay or ceramic pots as they are more attractive then plastic, and environmentally they are friendlier. Pineapples except for the Phuket Pigmy Dwarf ,needs lots of room and space to grow so , I suggest that what ever size of Pineapple you are holding just use the size of your hand in a nice circle to determine the surface area of the pots size and the total length of the fruit just double the depth size to have the correct size pot. Next place some stones and broken pottery pieces at the bottom about 2 to 3 inches high to provide good drainage. Then at your favorite nursery look for some good organic garden potting soil , and if you like some cactus potting soil as well. Even some shaved coconut husk is a good medium for good drainage. Fill your clay pot up to about half way , then work in some of your drainage material and add some more of your organic potting soil to about 6 inches from the pots edge. This next step will raise a lot of eye brows out there because it goes against a lot of the conventional wisdom , thinking and practice for people raising Pineapples.But my method works for me so I am sharing my experience with you. Place a Pineapple on your cutting board with the leaves attached, then cut the fruit about 2 to 3 inches from the base of the leafy stem in half. You will be left with the leafy stem and a small piece of the pine apple with skin attached. ( “I just know I have to make a You Tube Video of this method with time lapse photography when I get around to it, so please be patient with me Thank You”) Place this flat part of the fruit firmly into the center of the pot, then add the rest of your soil mix filled to the top almost covering the fruit , its ok to leave a bit of the fruit exposed. Water your exotic plant and let the soil dry out a bit before watering again. Compared to growing a Mangosteen Tree www.mangosteen.com ,growing a Pineapple should be a walk in the park for most people ,and easy to manage until maturity before harvest.My method does not take up to 3 years to see results ,as reported from other sites but only takes 6 to 8 months of growing time ,with at least half size delicious pine apple in comparison to the original size of the purchased Pineapple. Water to wet the soil , then let the soil dry out a bit and work your way up to only watering 2 or 1 time per week between dry periods. The Phuket Thailand weather is this way with dry seasons 6 months of the year with sporadic tropical rains that do not last too long then 6 months of drought, with hardly any rain at all . Phuket island is one of the many Pineapple Capitals on Planet Earth , so its growing every where year round,and that makes me one happy camper. After one month the stiff leaves should start to grow outwards and upwards covering the soil surface of the pot and this is indeed a good sign that the fruit is taking hold and the fruits flesh is breaking down to encourage new roots to grow out.When I last harvested my New Pineapple growth and inspected the subterranean soil underneath I discovered a healthy root system with no evidence of the original flesh of the fruit. The root system spread all the way to the edges of the pot and down to the length size of the original size of fruit purchased. Then in 2 or 3 months you should witness like I do a brilliance of color, down the center of the plant,with much more new leafy growth jutting up to a hight of about one foot or more. A small bud will start to form and grow , and grow until it takes the shape of your new Pineapple. When ever you can if its in the summer months with warm weather I would encourage you to have the potted Pineapple out side and only inside during cold winter months. Your tropical ornamental plant that provides such a delicious healthy treat for you and your family, should be, a great conservation and conversation piece around the house ,for your guests to enjoy as well. I hope that ,I can inspire a new trend to give people the opportunity to not through out their stems, but instead use them with the part of the fruit attached to replant and grow for years to come, could I be starting a new cottage industry? To recap from my experience the size of your new pineapple fruit will be around half the size of the original size purchased after only 6 to 8 months of growing in your clay container pot. The fruit should be incredibly juicy and sweet tasting, very edible. “Love Your Food” Barry Gourmet & Raw
