Easy Fruit Skewers

The warmer months are upon us and that means it’s time to entertain and enjoy the outdoors more often. The best part about summer is, what else, the fruit and vegetables growing in their prime! If you’re having a party or even for your own amusement, why not make fruit skewers? Easy as ‘raw’ pie and colourful. Be sure to eat the rainbow and use different coloured fruit to achieve nutritional balance.

Natalie & The Science of Raw Food

We had a great time speaking at the Ontario Science Centre for the Canadian Holistic Nutrition Conference.

It was fantastic to speak to such an involved group of people taking an active interest in their health. There is a definite science behind the way raw food interacts with your body and how it can benefit you. Each time you ingest raw food you’re giving your body nutrients from the source.

Raw Foods is a life changing shift’ and is easily adaptable to anyone’s busy life style. Nature’s garden have provided a bounty of nutrients that super charge the human body, mostly found in raw foods, which luckily is in abundance in the summer months.

Remember,  if choose to eat from the main food groups; ripe fruits, vegetables, particularly green leafy vegetables, natural fats from avocados, olives, cold pressed oils, nuts and seeds. Herbs and spices and spouted seeds, grains and legumes you will be eating in the most natural way that honors your body and that’s when the benefits start rolling in like natural weight loss, more energy and mental clarity, beautiful glowing skin and hair and that’s just the beginning.

Adapting to a raw food lifestyle is all about giving your body the most optimal foods that will reflect your most vital self. Each time you choose real food it matters.

Please, keep posted for our next seminars and/or culinary raw food classes where we get to share with you the experience health deliciously.

You do deserve real food.

We’d love to see you at our next event!

Defining Natural Food: Do you know what you’re eating?

The word natural implies an item that has not been altered or changed – in essence, it is pure in form.

According to Wikipedia:

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency restricts the use of “natural” to foods that have not been significantly altered by processing and gives examples of processes that do or do not significantly alter food. This includes two specific additional requirements:[8]

  • A natural food or ingredient of a food is not expected to contain, or to ever have contained, an added vitamin, mineral nutrient, artificial flavouring agent or food additive.
  • A natural food or ingredient of a food does not have any constituent or fraction thereof removed or significantly changed, except the removal of water.

The term “organic” has similar implications and has an established legal definition in many countries and an international standard. In some places, the term “natural” is defined and enforced. In others, such as the United States, it has no meaning.

How bizarre that the definition of a word can be interpreted differently from country to country. The difference between what is recognized legally versus in the mind of a consumer is a very wide gap.

The next question becomes what exactly are we eating and how do we know what the labels mean?

The answer: Inspect your food. Know where your food comes from and if has a long shelf life it shortens your own. Avoid processed foods and try your best to eat organic as often as possible. Take things that next step further and start a garden or become part of a local garden group and grow your own. You only have one body, try to make the best of it and treat it right.

Calcium rich alternatives

One of our twitter followers asked us what are some calcium rich alternatives to cow’s milk for his 17 month old. So many options!

 

Here’s our answer:

If you can make your own almond milk – raw organic almonds, soaking overnight, blend the next day and strain etc. Rotate your options with seed milks. Macadamia and brazil nuts are good too as they yield great fats, omegas and nutrients that babies need. It’s super easy and it keeps for a few days. It will give much more activated nutrients than store bought where they roast the nuts and it’s way cheaper to do.
Add cinnamon, turmeric, vanilla bean or flavour (the extract has alcohol so for an infant not recommended). Nutmeg in limited amounts, every once in a while, it is a good sweetener.

When I made my boys milk I would also add Lucuma and Mesquite as these super foods are powerhouses of goodness. If I give them fresh juices I added camu camu to up the Vitamin C.
I also used to make raw coconut cereal by scraping out the meat from a young coconut, blending it in some of the coconut water to make it creamy and then adding cinnamon with a pinch pink himilayan salt. Sea salt also works. I sometimes would add some raw aloe vera to this cereal or blended in liquid from in their juice.
Best of luck and hope this gives our follower a good start.

House Rules for March 21 @ George Brown College re: Foundations to Raw Food

We’re so thankful for the positive response we’ve received for our class this March. We really appreciate the excited attitude everyone has and for sure the class will be a fun one!

Before we start the class, we’d like to share some house rules to make sure everyone is on the same page.

Requirements to the class:

1. Always practice Health & Safety in the kitchen.

As much as we want to have a good time, it’s important and we are mindful of knives and other cooking tools that require full attention.

2. Please wear closed toe shoes.

Spring has arrived, but in the kitchen we want to make sure your feet are protected in the event you drop a bowl or item on your foot.

We will provide hats aprons.

Our items do not look exactly like this, but you get the idea.  We look forward to interacting with everyone!
