Discover Amazing Plant-Based Pre-Workout Mix!

maca-root-powder-extract.jpgI’ve been trying an experimental new protocol (at a number of top secret research facilities) and I’m finally able to share some of the results with the world.

That’s right : it is coming soon; our Maca rainbow whole food pre-workout.  While these are not published clinical trials – the gold standard of food supplements – you can bet that everyone involved has been impressed with the results!

One of the secrets; at least the only one I can divulge at this time – is a TRIFECTA of Maca rainbow energy. Yes, that’s right folks we’re combining Red Maca , Black AND Yellow Maca (organically grown in the Andes mountains in their raw state) to find out – the amount of whole food synergy is this combination is astounding.

More on this, and the other important whole food ingredients in this formula, to come.

Bullet Proof Fish Oil? Why Krill may be a misfire.

 

homefromfishing2LG

You would have to been under a rock to have not heard of “Bullet Proof Coffee” and perhaps you won’t be surprised to know that the inventor has written a book called the “Bullet Proof Diet”.

However when it comes to supplements there may be some holes in the program.  One potentially misguided recommendation of the author, who recommends relying on ‘good fats’ such as MCTs in coconut oil and grass-fed butter, may be the recommendation of Krill Oil over Omega-3 Fish Oil supplements.

Alkalize 55 : Honoring a founding father of Macrobiotics

December 28, 2014 the world lost one of the founding fathers of Macrobiotics (a system of plant-based eating based on promoting balance within the body) in Dr. Michio Kushi.  Dr. Kushi will forever be remembered as someone who worked hard to leave the world a better place than he found it.  Learn about his work with the Kushi Institute here. Truly an astounding and impressive legacy for his family, friends, students and admirers to consider.  Along with his wife Aveline, and many supporters, he truly made a lasting impact on the worldwide natural health movement.

While he was still alive, Dr Kushi’s work on fermented foods helped lead to the development of the supplement Alkalize 55.  All of us at the Food Movement are very proud to continue to honor his legacy with his unique combination of biodynamic fermented foods preB.

In keeping with his important work on macrobiotics, preB is made from 55 biodynamically grown foods which are triple-fermented in a unique process. All of the foods are grown on the Diemeter-certified Anew farm in Brazil.  The Food Movement combines these with unique humic fulvate trace minerals to activate this truly dynamic formula for promoting pH balance within the body.

To learn more about Dr. Kushi’s work and the principles behind Alkalize 55 in under 2 minutes, check out this interesting video. Do all that you can to start leading a great life today!  Thank you Dr. Kushi for all of your amazing work.

The Movement Awakens

I haven’t written much here lately, as it has proved to be a busier year than I could have previously imagined.  The Central Midwest (and indeed the entire US!) is seeing some tremendous growth in natural markets and we’re all thankful for this continued progress in bringing people healthy and organic food and supplements.WEMLacuma

Lucuma by Marika Malkerson for the food movement co. 2015

The Food Movement has seen some tremendous growth this year, but I mostly wanted to give a shoutout to artist Marika Malkerson who has done lots of fantastic botanical artwork for us.  The image of super fruit Lucuma is just one example of her tremendous contribution and her husband is an amazing emcee as well!  You can expect to see this on THM’s Hempfit Vanilla Lucuma protein coming very soon.

I have a huge backlog of research to write about, and I’m promising myself to delve into that in 2016.  Until then – eat better, feel better and leave the world a better place than you found it.  Happy Holidays to all – regardless of your faith (or lack thereof).  We all have much to be grateful for.
