Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

Welcome to Episode 4 of Know Your Food. Wow, the PEAR episode is here at last! Aren't you thrilled to know that? Of ALL of the fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, herbs, etc. in the knon world, we finally got to the wonderful pear. Well, it's no surprise, when you think about it. After all, sweet, mild pears are usually among the first fruits fed to babies. So, chances are, you were fed them, too, as a toddler. So, let's dig in, shall we?

Pears contain water-soluable fiber (pectin), Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Copper, Potassium, Posphorous, Folic Acid, Niacin, Iron, Magnesium, Sodium, Sulphur, Calcium, and more! They lower your blood pressure, releive inflammation, lower cholesterol via pectin, calm the stomach, cool the body, prevent cancer via anti-oxidants, boost your energy via the fructose/glucose, reduce inflammation, help your bones/calcium levels, aid in pregnancies via the folate, and much more. Pears are GREAT for you, so eat them regularly!

Now go eat some! Today's recommended recipe is Tuscan Raw Pear and Zucchini Soup from Gone Raw. And, as always, be sure to search for "pear" in the Recipe section of the All Raw Directory, which as of this writing contains 658 delicious raw food recipes.

Guys....the music in the background was so distracting I couldn't continue to listen. Great job, but I suggest you turn the music down and maybe find something a little more soothing while you are talking. :)

Hi Lauri,

Jim here. The video editing software we have right now is difficult to adjust the level of the music throughout the entire video. We're still experimenting with the format and other stylistic qualities of our "show" and we were purposely being a little silly on this one. Wendi agreed that the music was too loud, but I had already published it.

Thanks for watching and we hope you enjoy the series (it will get better the longer we work on these and learn more).

Love,

Jim
