For delicious wakame in a second, try Clearspring Instant Wakame Flakes: the convenient way to add the delicious taste and nutrition of wakame sea vegetable to your food. They are delicious in miso and clear soups, add them at the end of cooking time to retain their delicate flavour and appearance. They are also a great addition to stir-fries and salads, in which case they should be soaked in lukewarm water for 2-3 minutes before using. Known in Japan as fueru wakame or ‘expanding wakame’, the product contains nothing but top quality wakame. The flakes are made by a simple process where the wakame is blanched for a few seconds before being dried and packed. The wakame itself is cultivated on ropes and harvested in a renowned area of quality wakame production in Japan. The wakame spores are sown in June or July. Eight months or so later in March the microscopic spores have grown to become fronds anywhere between 1.3 and 2 meters in length, which are then harvested from their ropes.

‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ Nelson Mandela As a child I adored Nelson Mandela. In my decades of teaching, I have used his saying to remind me that when we focus on problems we will have more problems. But, when we focus on possibilities we have more opportunities hence my relenting chant about food and health for humans and non-humans alike. I am in service for a healthy world for all who live here, that’s my mission.

Sweet potatoes are one of my favourite foods. Straight from the oven – deliciously sweet and sticky I love to fill them with some quinoa, vegetables and a creamy sauce. These nutrient dense packed potatoes make a fantastic lunch or dinner. They are hugely filling and will keep your blood sugar happy all day.

A vegetable broth made from organically grown vegetables can be an excellent source of essential electrolytes. Ionic minerals are the key to maintaining good health. My broth is incredibly nutritious and a health-boosting food that is very easy to make. There is no absolutley no need to use the bones of our animal kingdom for the so-called miracle cure all that humans hanker after. My three 'magic' ingredients in my mineral broth come from plants. Kombu seaweed, dried shiitake mushrooms and dried daikon.

In general, most plants as we all know grow by absorbing nutrients from the soil. Their ability to do this depends on the nature of the soil.   Organic farmers of course know the difference between soil and ‘dirt’ but not to put too fine a point on it, the kids didn’t even believe that the food they eat is grown in ‘dirt’.

The best Enzyme-rich foods are those that are sprouted (seeds and legumes). Both deliver not only ‘top notch’ nutrition but boost our enzyme levels naturally and support our health. Sprouting increases the enzyme content in these foods tremendously.

I am not a Doctor and have no desire to be one.  My work is based on educating and specifically teaching prevention in our many workshops and programmes. However, I am currently seeing seven clients for health counselling.  They have terminal cancer, from prostate, ovarian, brain, and breast.  All of them asked their doctor or oncologist about diet and each and every one of these clients received the same answer.  Diet makes no difference!!!  Eat everything in moderation.

This is a message to all those out there who think that you need animal products to be fit and strong. The world’s largest and strongest animals eat plants.  Many of my friends who are athletes  were vegetarian for a long time but almost two years after becoming vegan they say they are stronger than ever before and are still improving day by day.

When two people are attracted to each other we often say that they have “good chemistry”. What if that’s really true? What we think is a clever metaphor may actually be the case. There is a great case to be made that our basic body chemistry influences our attraction to others and that this “chemical attraction” is a helpful tool in creating healthy relationships. It has long been observed that families that eat together generally have a stronger bond but what is the mechanism of this bonding?

In January 1989 The Endangered Earthwas named planet of the year by Time magazine. The fact that the earth was important enough to bump the likes of Benazir Bhutto, Mike Dukakisand Margret Thatcher off the cover means this must have been an important issue. Senator Al Gore wrote the lead article entitled, What’s Wrong With Us? Good question Al. Anyone got an answer? Anyone?
