I was very thrilled when Hugh Reilly of That Channel TV asked me to be a Guest on his ‘Liquid Lunch’ Show.  It’s wonderful to be able to talk about and share my Foodstyle with so many people.  I’ve been interviewed by Hugh before, and I was just in the beginning stages of my RAW Plant-Based Journey.

Calcium from RAW Algae

Did you know you that there is 
Calcium Plant-Based Foods
Vitamin SEA
Algae, Sea Vegetable, Seaweed, Sea Plant (all the same), known as a Superfood, is also one of the Highest Sources of Plant-Based Calcium! Algaes contain and retain many Marine Minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Iodine and Potassium, as well as Chlorophyll. Algae also have high concentrations of Vitamins, Antioxidants and Proteins!  (1 teaspoon equals 2 grams of Protein). 
Red, Brown and Green Mineral-dense Marine Algaes have so many varieties, and some you may of heard of are:  Spirulina, Chlorella, Nori, Wakame, Blue-Green Algae, Kelp and Dulse. 
 Where to get Algae from?
All sources of Algae which are easily available in powder, capsule or RAW form. RAW Nori Wraps are so tasty, RAW Dulse can be dehydrated into Crunchy Salad Toppings  I add Powered Algae into just about anything I eat and also take a great Algae RAW Calcium Based Supplement that I came across.  It’s made from Marine Algae, which a RAW, Organic Plant-Form of Calcium and Mineral Complex and is Ecologically harvested off the shores of South America. 
Dulse and Kelp Sea Vegetables
One of the things I’m not crazy about is swallowing pills.  So when the Package suggested take 4-5 a day, I kind of cringed.  I continued to read the package and was surprised to see it suggested that you can take the Powder out of the Vegetable Cellulose Caps made from Birch Tree Fiber, and add to your Smoothie. Relax – Birch Tree Fibre is OK! Although these Capsules are fast dissolving in the stomach and easily digestible, I just prefer not to add foreign stuff to my Body if I don’t have to.  I’ve taken to opening caps of many powdered Supplements and just adding the Powder into my Smoothies.  But fair warning, there are some Powders that need to be left in the Cap!
 Vegetarian Cellulose Birch Fibre Capsules
Note:  RAW Vegans and Vegetarians – Please make sure you are not taking Gelatin Capsules as they are made from Animal By-Products and if you don’t know what that is, I suggest you find out.
How does Algae Get Calcium?
Marine Algae (Algas Calcareas) draws Calcium and other Minerals from Sea Water by attaching itself to pieces of Seaweed and digesting the Minerals from the water. As the tiny Algae attaches to the Seaweed and collects the Minerals, it slowly grows in size, eventually growing to about the size of a human hand. When fully-grown, the Algae naturally washes up on a beach.
Garden of Life, which I mentioned above, collects the Algae in small, sustainable batches. After the Algae is picked and cleaned on shore, the Plant is Sun-Dried and Ground within 48 hours, thus making it RAW. Their minimal processing technique allows for a high level of Nutrients to be retained.

6 Top Reasons Why Support Local Farmers Market

It’s my Saturday morning ritual to head down to my Local Farmers’ Market to get my Produce for the week.  I love the early morning, not a lot of people are at the Market early, so your pickings are premium. Here are a few reasons why I believe you should Support your Local Farmers Market:

Enjoying Each Season at the Market:

As I write this, it’s Fall or Autumn here in Toronto, and with the Weather turning more Crisp, it’s kind of nice to bundle up and head down to my Local Farmers’ Market, and check out the Farmers’ tables that are stacked with Colourful Fresh, Organic and Wild-Crafted Produce and other interesting Edibles.  When you get close, the Farmers are busily rubbing their hands to keep warm, but once they see you, their smiles warmly greet you.

I bought a big bag of Organic Wheatgrass, (I haven’t started sprouting my own Grass yet), and wanted to Juice the entire bag of grass and freeze the Juice for Future Drinks.  So, I got out some ice cube trays and my Mighty Kempo Juicer and just Juiced.

Getting Ready to Juice & Freeze Wheatgrass

In order to get the full Benefit of Juiced Wheatgrass, it’s best to Juice it Fresh from a Live, Living Plant and Drink the Juice within 15 minutes of Juicing it. If you don’t have access to Live Wheatgrass, buy it Organically and Juice it as soon as you can.   Read More
