11 Sep Farmers market Sta Cruz, San Jose
It’s in the middle of their sort-of Serendra . An outdoor shopping district typical in California.
Trivia: Broccolli has more usable amino acids (the building blocks of Protein) than Beef.
Did you know that Red Chilli pepper has more Vitamin C than Orange?
Figs are low calorie energy dense snacks that can sustain you better than any energy bar.
A spike of Wheatgrass gives you the same power-up boost as that of espresso sans the palpitation and dehydrating effect of coffee. Loaded with Chlorophyll , this superfood is no Hype.
Mushrooms are good non-meat sources of protein and VITAMIN B12 due to the number of good bacteria present in the through the soil.
Pomegrantes is rich in Folate, that says Stem Cell everyone- as it helps in DNA repair (to the cellular level)
Sauerkraut is the NUMBER ONE SOURCE OF PROBIOTICS beating Kefir, yogurt and Kimchi. Thats right folks, be a Kraut Convert.
We all need probiotics in our gut as it allows have to have a good number of bacteria that ups our immunity, aids digestion and boosts metabolism. Surprisingly the acidic taste of Kraut is very alkalanizing for the body
Raw flax crackers much like Cocogreen’s SUN GOD
Look Mom, they also make gluten free bread here! Bet ours taste so much nice at Cocogreen ;p It has eggs though, that can be an allergen to a lot of people, well hopefully they’re organic!
Glutenfree bread and pastries are a great option for those who are consuming a highly acidic meat based diet or has consumed so in the past. Wheat is one of the top allergens today because of the toxic chemical-infused processing and Genetic modifying we have been subjecting it to for ages.
Not exclusive to those with cyliac disorders, a Glutenfree diet is great for anyone who wants to have better bowel movement, improved skin and hair and more energy.
GREEN JUICE. Ofcourse, my obsession, and look at the sexy gypsy branding too
Coldpressed juices are cheat-fixes for the typically nutrient-deprived fast-food diet of many. A 350-475 ml worth of none-sweetened undiluted green juice can pack as much enzyme as you’d normally find in a kilo worth or fresh produce.
Vegan dips and spreads, perfectly resonates with Cocogreen’s Evolve Pili butter and pili cheese. So glad non-dairy is the norm here. Dairy inflames mucous and worsens acne. It is also if non-organic, is typically loaded with hormones and anti-biotic.
I visited the Sta. Cruz Farmers Market on the hottest day of the Indian Summer, where wildfire is pretty common in the area. Make sure to bring a wide brimmed hat, light wear clothing , sun glasses or an umbrella if you’re in the area at the same time as I am. Better yet, check the news to find out.
That or get really bad sunburn like me, but you know its pretty worth the Ouchie
