Video: The Best Way To Consume Your Food Without Losing Healthy Nutrients By Joel Fuhrman M.D.

Dear brothers and sisters,

Beginning with the observation “With green vegetables there is no threshold, the more you consume the longer you live...”,Dr. Fuhrman goes on to give a magnificent, vindication of a live, food diet based primarily on living greens. His reasoning is incisive, his  insights profound.

Where 60% of the caloric intake of most Americans comes from ultra processed foods this is most cogent.

Please watch and share with us your comments.

Video: A Few Words on Our Macadamia Butter - Alive & Organic

Macadamia nuts are rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and healthy fats. Their potential benefits include weight loss, improved gut health, and protection against diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and heart disease. Macadamia nuts boast some of the highest flavonoid levels of all tree nuts. This antioxidant fights inflammation and helps lower cholesterol. 

Macadamias are an excellent source of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc. 100 g nuts provide 3.6 µg of selenium. Selenium is a cardio-protective trace element and an essential antioxidant cofactor for the glutathione peroxidase enzyme.

Buckwheat Groats are buckwheat seeds that have been hulled. Subtly flavored when raw, buckwheat develops an earthly, nutty taste when roasted, long used as a tasty cereal-type grain called kasha.

This gluten-free grain can be substituted for wheat, oats, rye or barley. You may also grind it into a flour to use in buckwheat pancakes or combine with wheat flour to use in baked goods.
