I started using spirulina when I was pregnant with my daughter 13 years ago.
Today my friend my sister I invite you to discover with me a magical place for living food fans: the spirulina production site Solis Culturae in the South of France.
Lilian was very generous in opening the doors of the spirulina farm and in letting us know how he grows this extraordinary seaweed.
Rich in iron and proteins, the fabulous seaweed is a whole food, beneficial at all ages (I give some to my children) and at all stages of life.
For women, the iron contained in spirulina is such an ally during menstruation. The genius tip from Lilian? Enjoy it with a source of vitamin C (kiwi, citrus fruit family) to make the iron even better absorbed by the body.
Enjoy the visit my friend my sister!
I believe in a healthy lifestyle and optimum nutrition but not in complicated things.
I was introduced to the great app Yuka, which allows you to check the amount of additives, fat and sugar in the products you buy at the supermarket by scanning their bar code.
However I would rather keep it even more simple by buying almost only fresh fruits and vegetables. My raw cacao nibs from Raw Living come with a bar code but in 5 kilo bags to save money.
Keeping things as easy as possible is the best way to stick to healthy habits for a very long time. Forever? I believe it is possible my friend my sister. You certainly deserve it.
Just do it my friend my sister: if you have to take antibiotics, pleeeeease take some probiotics afterwards to rebuild your intestinal flora. Then feed these nice guys with prebiotics or fiber in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables. There you have it. Take good care.
For more detailed explanation, there is nobody like Markus Rothkranz to explain it to you.
The miracle cure does not exist. If we try one food and it does not suit us, it is our responsibility to stop consuming it.
Moreover, it is important to have variety in our diet. Yes spinach is healthy but we also need cilantro, parsley, lettuce, rosemary, basil and so many other herbs to thrive.
If I am offered a dish that I don’t particularly like but I am totally starving, I might accept that. However, if I feel whole and happy in my skin without any worry about the next meal, I will easily turn down everything that I don’t like. Love and food are so related in this matter (as Teal Swan so eloquently explains it). My friend my sister, I have two amazing books to recommend, by Geneen Roth (my mentor) and Don Miguel Ruiz: Women, food and God and The mastery of Love.
Wild herbs are called bad? Far from it! Their nutritive value is through the roof compared to cultivated aromatic herbs. They are strong herbs because of their wild nature.
Wild leaves are delicious in a smoothie with banana and chocolate.
If you want to know everything about milk thistle, plantain and dandelion, I recommend Markus Rothkranz and (in French) Thierry Casasnovas.
Lion’s mane is an amazing medicinal mushroom which boosts the brain.
I tested it for the first time in my last Raw Living order.
The taste is not very strong so it goes very well into a salad dressing. I mixed a teaspoon of Lion’s mane with orange and lemon juice, salt and olive oil. Cumin powder is delicious in it as well.
A few tablespoons of red lentils will be amazing if you let them gently sprout during the whole night. This is why I do my salads in the evening for the next day, letting them marinate for a night in the fridge.
The salad itself is composed of zucchini, carrots and pumpkin noodles. Enjoy!
