What raw should mean to you

What raw should mean to you 
In the raw food world, raw means food that has not been pasteurized, non-irradiated, no GMOs and not heated over 118°. Heating foods over 118° (more than a hot sunny day) starts to kill the enzymes and nutrients in your food.    

Raw foods help nourish the body. Cooking foods cause a loss of nutrients. Why rob yourself of those enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals when you retain all their health properties by eating them raw. You don’t need to sacrifice taste either! You’ll find our almonds taste so much better. Watch the video below and see what our taste testers have to say. 

Are your almonds ‘truly’ raw?

Did you know that your almonds are most likely not ‘truly’ raw! Why? Because California supplies 80% of the almonds globally. California almonds are the only nut (it’s really a seed!) that MUST be — by law — pasteurized. They are either heat-pasteurized (steamed) or fumigated with a chemical called propylene oxide or PPO. Yes, that’s right! Your almonds may be coated with a jet engine fuel additive that was used for racing cars and motorcycles. 

Our certified organic Valencia almonds from Spain are ‘truly’ raw. Unpasteurized and non-irradiated. Wilma (and her supplier!) refrigerate almonds to keep them fresh and suggests you do the same. 

Nuts and seeds are almost always heated through roasting, shelling or pasteurization. Not ours!

If you would like more information about placing an order, Contact Wilma or call (613) 741-1151.

Beauty From The Inside Out

You want health and wellness in your life, right? Unfortunately, most people wait for something bad to happen to them before they’re willing to make some changes. So let’s get started, shall we! 

We all want that beautiful and radiant skin. We want to fight off diseases and age gracefully while looking good and feeling great.

Anti-aging products and services may be on the rise but I prefer to age naturally. You are not likely to see me lining up for a botox injection any time soon. If you are, that’s okay. It’s just not for me. So what am I doing? 

I’m doing the best anti-aging possible!

After writing my book, Anew You Style Journal, I wanted to experience what I was asking of my readers. I set goals for myself in the month of December – 31 Days to Dream Big in all 6 categories….including health!  I understood the power of writing things down. That’s why my book is a journal. It adds clarity and makes your changes more likely to come to fruition.

Before long, it happened to me! My health and wellness took over and I made drastic changes to my diet – or what I prefer to call it – my lifestyle. I’m living a more vegan (mostly raw) lifestyle, and loving it! I have more energy, sleep better, an overall feeling of well-being, reduced sugar cravings, more clarity, and my body thanks me every day. I lost 15 pounds in less than 3 months – without trying. 

Please take a look at my recommendations. See how easy it is for you to love your body from the inside out. 

Contact me if you any questions. I’m here to help! Send me an email or leave me a message on the links above.
