Exotic Raw Fruits & Vegetables for Health and Healing in Colombia

I just started back juicing and making smoothies for my health and wellness. I’m blown away by the variety of fruits and vegetables they have available here in Medellin, Colombia; and the costs are amazingly low compared to what we pay for in the United States.

I wanna live to be a very healthy 100 years old… So it’s best to start now before any major issues arise. The exotic fruits in Medellin, Colombia is amazing. Great for smoothies, juicing, cleansing and healing. Tomorrow, I’m going to an Exotic Fruit tour and I can’t wait to see and sample the variety.

In the interim, here’s a video from some of the fruits I’ve managed to pick up from the local market/store … It’s some of the best eating I’ve ever had. I can literally eat on these all day and be completely satisfied (and healthy).

I’ll be posting more videos on the individual healing benefits of the fruits and vegetables found  in #medellin #colombia.

    The fruits and veggies are non-gmo … EVERYTHING has seeds in it 🙂 There are farmers who sell organic foods as well.

Cartess,

I’ve been enjoying your blog & videos. I’ll be moving to Medellin soon and would like to know the price and availability of quality juicers there.

What models/brands have you found available in the city and what kind of prices will I be looking at? I currently have a Champion and will ship it if I can’t replace it there. Do you know if they’re available and at what cost?

Also, regarding your health issues that you’ve discussed, if you’re looking into natural methods for improving your health, you might want to do some research into coconut oil and systemic enzymes.

I have found coconut oil to be very helpful with type 2 diabetes, thyroid regulation, and weight loss by increasing metabolism, controlling hunger and cravings, etc.

Systemic enzymes like Serrapeptase and Nattokinase are exceptional for dealing with inflammation and fibrin within the body. I’ve seen great improvement in issues like arthritis, bursitis, high blood pressure, general body aches and pains, etc. Both are staples in my families health regimen.

Regards,
TJ

    hi TJ … Welcome and thanks for the kind words.

    Bring your own juicer … The ones available absolutely suck. I’ve purchased several varieties and I’m not happy. Perhaps hit has to do with the fact that I’ve been using Vitamix for nearly the last two years and nothing measures up. I found some flights to Miami from here costing about $75 bucks each way. When I get in the mood to take the 3 1/2 hour flight, I’ll likely fly into Miami and bring a Vitamix blender back … YES, it’s that serious, LOL. I didn’t appreciate what i had until now.

    Regarding the BP … I’ve been reading Dr. Joel Fuhrman book, The End of Diabetes and he doesn’t recommend we consume any kind of oil (even coconut, olive, or any other kind). Particular for people who already have heart disease. As I’ve mentioned before, when I followed his plan previously, I dropped 15-20 pounds within 1-month and I never felt sooo great in my life. I wasn’t hungry, nor was I weak. The issue I had was maintaining the regiment of prepping meals.

    I made my 2nd batch of all raw salad dressing (the first batch was horrible), but my second batch was awesome (Mango Salad dressing with 1/2 of an oversized avocado). It certainly made my salad much more enjoyable!

    My new doc is BIG in nutrition and so far, it has been great working with her. She genuinely cares and I can’t wait to see the results.

Hi Mr Ross :. I share your enthusiasm for the fruits .
In parts of the Caribbean those fruits are very popular.
The large green fruit is called “soursop” and the last small yellow fruit that you were eating the seeds with a spoon is called “passion fruit . ” Don’t know the Colombian names . As always a pleasure watching . Thanks for sharing.

    Ahhh .. Thanks for sharing the info. I love the soursop and I should eat more of it … Since it’s sooooo readily available. I think they also call the yellow one passion fruit in U.S., but gotta get the spanish name 🙂

Cartess,

Thanks for the reply.

I tried to post a reply to our discussion a month ago, but your switch to Disqus wouldn’t allow me to post. Glad to see you’re back to WP’s native commenting system.

I will definitely pack a juicer then. I still have to look into the costs and hassles of shipping a few things, now I will just add the juicer to the list.

Thanks for your input.

TJ

PS – From your latest videos, it looks like your diet and juicing regimen is working great. You’re looking better and better with each video. Much success to you in 2017 and I hope to meet up with you and your family in Medellin soon.

    Thanks for the kind words … I’ve slowly been losing weight. Decided not to go as aggressive as I intended to start. Figured it’d be better to slowly roll into it. Yes … That disqus wasn’t working out and I switched it back. Thanks for commenting!
