Let’s go back in time, approximately 3.5 billion years ago - to the VERY beginning. That duration of time is difficult for our human brains to comprehend. Yet, microorganisms were thriving in the primordial oceans of our young planet. They were converting energy from the sun into essential nutrients and this marked the beginning of life on Earth. These organisms were phytoplankton.
Now let’s jump ahead to the 1960’s when human’s began studying phytoplankton. This all started in Europe, specifically in Spain. A physician named Dr. Luvian who worked at the University of Cadiz, a microbiological university, specifically studying marine sciences. His team traveled all over the earth gathering different strains of phytoplankton from the oceans as part of their research.
They were focused on ocean phytoplankton because they knew that marine phytoplankton was the foundational, functional food for the Earth's ocean and necessary for the survival of the planet. If you took the marine phytoplankton out, everything in the ocean would die.
“Detox” has become a trendy word these days, however it’s absolutely necessary to incorporate daily forms of detox into your health regimen. If you ignore detox, it’s likely your health will suffer.
We all know that there are thousands and thousands of chemicals found in our modern environment. And they are throwing a wrench in our health and hindering our ability to thrive.
Given that we are exposed to 80,000 chemicals within our modern toxic environment, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle alone are not enough to achieve optimal health for any of us in this day and age. That’s why detox is so important. We all must be thinking about detox on a daily basis.
Portobello mushrooms stuffed with spinach, bell peppers, cheese and marinara sauce – a delicious meatless meal that’s low-carb and pretty genius!
I love that these healthy egg muffin cups can be made in advance, because I know a lot of people just don’t have the time for a healthy breakfast, so they grab something else on the go that may not be the healthiest option! Even if you DO have the time, these are so delicious that you’ll want to make them anyway ;)
These muffin cups have less than 50 calories per muffin, so eat up!
Being a vegetarian prior to our Keto life, I love discovering and making LCHF vegetarian recipes! This has become our favourite “quick meal” that is so delicious and nourishing.
The fall season offers so much hearty goodness. As we know, eating seasonally is nourishing for the body and soul. This spaghetti squash lasagna is one of my favorite fall recipes. Most lasagnas are made with refined, carbohydrate rich noodles and few vegetables. While they may taste good, you won’t feel good afterwards. That’s what makes this one-pot meal the perfect complement to a cool autumn day. The squash is just a lovely accompaniment to the rest of the Italian goodness.
