Smart Psoriasis Diet Plan Step 6

Add the following psoriasis healing foods to your diet.

Here is a list of other foods that will help your psoriasis. As you can see the list is massive so you should have no problem making delicious daily meals with the added benefit that they are helping you heal your leaky gut issue and in turn your psoriasis.

Please note that you should stick to 80% plant based diet and 20% meat protein that is derived from grass fed and humanely treated animals.

It would also be just as beneficial to derive all your protein needs from plant based products. Thankfully it is getting more common to find vegan and vegetarian friendly protein based goods in your local supermarket or health food store.

Also nuts are the one food where people tend to have many reactions. If you find yourself having some reactions please use common sense and refrain from taking them and try some other ones.

Simple Cheat To Get All The Daily Alkaline Boosting Requirements Into Your Diet

There are certain foods that will be very beneficial to your diet. Basically all food that is alkaline in nature. This helps reduce the high acidity level of psoriasis sufferers as well as provide all the natural fibre required to eliminate waste from your body in a efficient and safe way.

These type of foods include lots of green leafy vegetables like lettuce, kale and all other green type vegetables like broccoli, green beans, brussel sprouts, cabbage, spinach, cucumber etc.

It can be hard to try and fit all of these type of vegetables into your daily meals so as a way to start the fightback against your leaky gut I advise using the new craze… Vegetable Juicing!

As I have a busy schedule, I tend to eat only 3 meals a day. All of my meals are pretty basic..

However I do not get enough proper fresh vegetables into my system which will ensure that my body will start the repair process quicker.

The vegetables mentioned above not only add more natural fibre to my diet but a lot of this vegetables have anticancer properties and provide essential minerals to help out embattled immune system.

So along with my 3 regular meals, I make a raw vegetable shake per day in a strong blender, and I store it in the fridge and drink this three times a day.

Simple Raw Vegetable Shake Recipe

Firstly you will need a decent blender. You must realise that if you are serious about controlling your psoriasis, you will be using a blender every evening to make your daily raw vegetable shakes. Because you will be using not only fresh vegetables but also frozen vegetables you must ensure that your blender is powerful enough to handle frozen foodstuffs, otherwise you will have to defrost first or even cut into small pieces, which gets annoying if you are blending every day

I recommend buying the best you can afford to buy. Here are the best two high end blenders on the market

Blendtec Total Blender (currently $395.48 on amazon)

Vitamix Professional Series (currently $598.95 on amazon)

If you just want to start off vegetable juicing to see how much it will benefit you without having to break the bank, then try getting one which has at least 500 watts power and can hold around 50 oz (1500 ml). Be warned though, these lesser models will probably start giving some trouble after about 12 months, but if you have been using it daily then I think you will definitely have got value. Here is a good low cost entry item.

Oster Counterforms Blender – Stainless or Black – $59.99

A Simple Raw Vegetable Shake Recipe

(Please be aware that this does not taste very satisfying but I see it as medicine for the body)

– Half a head of lettuce (It’s good to vary your lettuce types)

– Handful of broccoli

– Handful of celery

– Handful of spinach

– Handful of cucumber

– 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

– Pint of still mineral water

– Add cinnamon for taste

Instructions

Fill blender to about 40% level with lettuce, then add the rest on top. Finally add the extra virgin olive oil and add water. You can add as much water as you so choose, I usually add water until you see it rise to about the 80% level of the blender.

Blend for 1 minute. If you find it a bit too lumpy then simply blend for a bit longer until it is fine.

I store the mix in glass jars and and put straight into fridge if I am not consuming straight away. The mix should fill approx 4 jars. Please use up within 2 days of making.

I try to drink 4 jars per day. The best thing about these shakes is you can take with you to work to store in the work fridge and have them at lunch time. If people ask what it is, just say it’s a homemade smoothie.

Now please be adventurous and add more alkaline vegetables to the mix. I try to ensure that I have 5 varieties of vegetable in each mix, and I always include lettuce or spinach, broccoli and celery as my base and then substitute two other vegetables into the mix. After taking these drinks for a while, your body starts to crave them. Also if you have a tight budget and can’t afford to buy organic vegetables every day then try buying frozen vegetables and add to the mix.

If you can afford organic vegetables but you don’t want to be constantly chopping vegetables every night then just do one big shop and chop as I call it and store the chopped fresh vegetables in the freezer.

Simple Raw Vegetable Shake Benefits

The first benefits you will see from the vegetable shakes will be an improvement in your nail psoriasis. In my case the pitted and fungus like nails grow out and are replaced by healthy pink nail beds. You will feel pretty darn good after all the shakes, added to the daily supplements you are taking, expect to feel a lot of extra energy and you will notice your brain power improving. You will feel like working harder and will be stressed less. Even if my psoriasis disappeared I would still continue to drink these shakes as I honestly love the texture and taste.

Another good factor is that following a psoriasis diet does entail avoiding a lot of foods so it is refreshing and mentally uplifting when you can actually prepare and ingest food that will actively help your skin get better and also improve your mindset.
