and this is not just another lie! 😀

I never liked grapes enough to actually eat them regularly, not even seasonally. Why? I really don’t know…actually to be honest I love the taste of grapes but I hate the seeds and the skin that covers each bean of grape, mostly the seeds. I do like raisins instead, I love raisins actually. Maybe I’m spoiled or my brain is damaged in a way that it doesn’t accept grape seeds! 😀

Of course… whole foods are always the best option for our body, but still, how to enjoy the fresh flavour of grapes in autumn, when you don’t like their seeds? For me this was a though one. Somehow I figure it out!glass of grape juice

I know! I will juice the grapes! 😀

I have to enjoy them somehow and it seems that the juicing thing might actually be a good idea for me. I would never thought that grape juice would be so beneficial for me, from the health point of view and I would never imagined the amazing taste that comes out when you drink a glass of fresh squeezed grape juice.

As you can imagine, I wanted to know more about grapes and grape juice in particular, so I studied the subject a bit.

Here is what I have found:

  • Grape juice is very detoxifying for the body
  • It is a good diuretic and laxative
  • Lowers blood cholesterol
  • It is full of minerals and vitamins
  • Good for your nervous system (loads of vitamin B)
  • Has anti-inflammatory properties
  • It works like a digestive tonic
  • It’s a pretty awesome antioxidant, especially the juice made from black grapes ( because of the presence of resveratrol)
  • Balances the blood pressure
  • Fortifies the immune system
  • Anti-aging properties
  • Anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties
  • Improves taste, smell and hearing
  • Helps prevent serious degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer
  • Improves the health in osteoarticular system
  • Rich in lecithin… perfect for your memory 😀

 

Is not that bad isn’t it? blue grapes

and the taste is amazing! Grape juice is fragrant, sweet, and delicate and it always brings a smile on my face. Always! You have to try it for sure (and I am not talking about wine ok? 😀 )

You can buy fresh squeezed grape juice from the farmers market or you can make it for yourself with the help of a juicer. Both ways it is beneficial for your health and brings autumn to a whole new level, trust me.

I recommend you to eat grapes in all shapes and forms and to enjoy them as much as you possibly can, especially as a whole plant based food (with seeds, skin and everything else); and if you are nuts, just as I am and you really hate the seeds, please juice the grapes.

You will still get amazing health benefits from doing so!
