HEALTHY FOOD GLOSSARY

Flaxseeds (a.k.a. linseeds)
Flaxseeds are loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids (the good fats) that keep your heart healthy, reduce inflammation, and help to balance your hormones. Both the ground seeds and the cold-pressed oil (we serve both) are amazing superfoods that you should try to include as part of your diet whenever possible. Our flaxseeds are certified organic, harvested from Outer Mongolia, and refrigerator-stored to preserve freshness.

 

Sesame Seeds
Sesame seeds are the most calcium-rich food source on the planet! Plus they taste great and are loaded with copper, magnesium, and easy-to-digest vegetable protein and lipids. Our sesame seeds are certified organic, harvested from Outer Mongolia, and refrigerator-stored to preserve freshness.

 

Cold-Press Oils
In our kitchen, we use olive oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, sunflower oil, and flaxseed oils. All are cold-pressed, organic (whenever possible), and stored in dark bottles to protect from light damage.

 

Sea Salt
We use all-natural sea salt at the Love Kitchen gathered right here in Thailand! Our sea salt is packed with 84 trace minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium (often referred to as “electrolytes) in their natural ratios to promote health and wellness.

 

Masticating Juicer
We use only slow-moving, masticating juicers which essentially “chew” up fruits and vegetables extracting the juice without oxidizing or losing any of the vital nutrients.

 

Vitamins/Supplements
In our “Super Juices,” we use Garden of Life superfood supplements. Garden of Life is one of our most-trusted U.S.-based sources for 100% organic, plant-based supplements.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar
We use a special apple cider vinegar that’s raw or “living.” It’s made from fermented organic apple juice, and the bacteria in raw apple vinegar (often called “the mother”) is extremely beneficial for strengthening your digestive system—particularly after a cleanse.

 

Young Coconut
Young coconuts are one of Thailand’s most coveted foods. Coconut water is loaded with electrolytes. The water itself has been “filtered” for 9 months as the coconut is growing, so it’s 100% sterile. In fact, coconut water is so similar to blood plasma that it was used intravenously during World War II (I.V. drip of coconut water anyone?) to re-hydrate wounded soldiers.

 

The meat of young coconuts (more so than mature ones) is extremely rich in lauric acid, a fatty acid that has been shown to have powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal cleansing properties. From curries to smoothies, skin creams to desserts, coconuts are truly amazing!

 


 

TEA

 

Ginger & Goji Berries
Ginger is one of the most powerful remedies for relieving nausea on the planet. It also stimulates digestion, fights inflammation, and gives you a natural lift in spirit. Goji berries are packed 18 Amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen), more beta carotene than carrots, more iron than spinach, and 21 trace minerals. Plus, they have a delicious sweet & sour taste.

 

Bael Fruit
One of Thailand’s most-healing fruits… Bael fruit has “cooling” properties and also gently cleanses the Gastro-intestinal (“GI”) tract. This dark, sweet tea is a perfect choice for fasters.

 

Ginger & Lime
Ginger is one of the most powerful plants for relieving nausea, and it also stimulates digestion, fights inflammation, and gives you a natural lift in spirit. A twist of lime turns your tea into a detoxifying tonic that’ll speed up the cleansing process.

 

Lemongrass
Thailand’s aromatic favorite… lemongrass naturally cleanses the colon, improves digestion, and has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Plus, it tastes great!

 

Mulberry
A cup of mulberry a day keeps the free radicals away! Naturally-sweet mulberry tea is loaded with age-fighting anti-oxidants to keep you young and healthy.

 

Chrysanthemum
This flower power tea is famous for its “cooling” properties and is believed to cleanse the liver and purify the blood. Sweet and full-bodied.

 

Earl Grey
This European favorite black tea is loaded with anti-oxidants, and also acts as a disinfectant and an anti-depressant. Contains ½ the caffeine as a cup of coffee.

 

Japanese Green
When it comes to healing teas, Japanese Green is the king. Research has shown it fights cancer, lowers cholesterol, and strengthens the immune system. Its full-bodied, earthy flavor makes it a Love Kitchen favorite. Contains 1/3 the caffeine of coffee.

 

Stevia
Stevia tea is a natural sweetener made from the Stevia Rebaudiana plant, which originated in Paraguay and other subtropical areas of South America. The leaves of this herb contain an immense amount of non-caloric, non-toxic molecules that provide more than 30 times the sweetening power of sugar. In addition to its sweetening qualities, Stevia tea is purported to have therapeutic uses that include lowering blood sugar levels in diabetics, aiding digestion, and improving oral health.

 

Chamomile
Widely known for its soothing & calming properties, chamomile tea can also help sooth inflamed membranes, making a sore throat or dry cough feel better. The tea can also help with taming allergies if taken 3 to 4 times a day during the allergy season. Consuming 3 to 4 cups of camomile tea has also shown benefits of regeneration of liver tissue. Reports show that the tea works even better than taking capsules of camomile.
