Juice Fasting Recipes for Weight Loss: 40 Free Recipes on Kindle by Jenny Allan

Juice fasting recipes for weight loss have helped lots of people to reduce body fat. People go on juice fasts for all types of reasons nowadays and you should always consult your doctor first. These beverages can be used to make you slimmer and they can also form a part of a detoxification plan.

Jenny Allan has put together a collection of 40 free recipes that you can use to produce tasty, nutritious juices that can accompany a meal, or be enjoyed as a snack. While some individuals do manage to drink eight ounces of natural fruit punch or mango or orange juice and use it to replace a meal, I find that I get hungry again within an hour or two whenever I try that.

If you want to try this plan for losing weight, you can save money by buying fruits in bulk at a farmer’s market. You should also try to buy more fruits that are in season, since these are usually cheaper. Some of these drinks in her free book require added sugar. I don’t think that’s necessary. In fact, if you drink pure natural juice for a while without sugar, you get used to the taste and may even prefer it that way.

Remember that each blend Jenny Allan recommends has natural sugars, which are from the fruit that you use. She also gives tips on juicing that will be help you understand why certain ingredients are combined. If you are diabetic, vegetable juices will be better for you, since these contain less sugar. Remember to avoid fruit and vegetables that you are allergic to. For example, the essential oils in carrots and pineapples can cause allergic contact dermatitis in some individuals.

Her book gives recipes that combine fruit and vegetables with milk. You can also use yogurt. That’s a better option if you are planning to substitute a beverage for a meal. If you are looking for juice fasting recipes for weight loss, Jenny Allan’s book will prove useful, if you eliminate extra sugar where necessary.

Easy Sweet Fried Plantains Recipe- Jamaican Cooking

This sweet fried plantains recipe is for people who have had fried plantains before but aren’t quite sure how to do it themselves at home. There is a secret to producing plantains that tastes just the way you like it. You have to select the right fruit.

This article will focus on how to make fried sweet plantains for dinner, breakfast, lunch or a snack. Whether you are buying the fruit or reaping it directly from the plant, you should ensure that it is completely yellow before you use it to produce this dish. Ike bananas, green plantains have a variety of uses in Jamaican cooking and I enjoy those as well.

Plantains grow in the tropics and the leaves and fruit have different medicinal benefits. You can find lots of information online about the medicinal uses of the plant. I am sure that you will find them helpful.

Yellow plantains are much sweeter than green plantains. If you like your fried plantains very sweet, wait until the plantains have a touch of brown at the ends before using them. If you like them firm with a hint of sweetness, use them as soon as the color changes from green to a light yellow.

Coconut oil is best for frying but olive oil or any other oil derived from plants will suffice. Do not slice the plantains too thinly or they will be difficult to turn in the oil. When you have finished frying them, you can sprinkle them with a little brown sugar. However this is not necessary. Use an absorbent paper towel to remove excess oil from the fried plantain slices.
