Imagine a vegetable garden in the dead of winter. Then imagine the same garden on a sunny, summer day. How different the garden is during these two seasons of the year! Yet, today it is so easy for us to forget about the seasons when we eat.
Originally, people had no choice but to eat foods only when they were in season. But now, modern food propagation methods and a fast and economical worldwide distribution of food make the same foods available all year round. You can buy many types of food from a supermarket irrespective of seasonal availability, and grocery store shelves look much the same in December as they do in July.
However, life always comes full circle and now, once again, we are moving back to the old approach of following the seasons. Seasonal foods are a way of reconnecting with the cycle that nature intended for us. Raw foods, the healthiest wholesome foods provided by nature, are seasonal. And when food is in season, it has more flavour and is more economical to buy.
LSA (Linseeds, Sunflower Seeds and Almonds)
LSA help to cleanse and detoxify the liver. The liver is the cleanser and filter of the bloodstream,
it regulates fat metabolism and makes HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol), which carries the LDL
(bad cholesterol) back to the liver for elimination. One to two tablespoons of LSA per day added to breakfast cereal, yogurt or smoothies will increase that food's nutrient value significantly. Alternatively, sprinkle LSA on salads and fruit.
