Driving from MI to AZ

Greetings boys and girls. It’s been a long time since my last post and I’ve traveled many miles and had lots of experiences since my last days at Camp Rawnora in Michigan.Sunset_rainbow_TreeOfLife

I was in Patagonia, AZ managing the cafe at The Tree of Life for several months. I enjoyed my brief time in the cafe and living in raw vegan community. Patagonia is a special place and I was fortunate to be there for monsoon season. The desert comes alive when the rains arrive.

I lost my dad to cancer in September of 2015 and returned to Florida to be closer to my remaining family. I’m still grieving and processing his passing. I miss my dad, Mr. Phil. He was my biggest supporter and my raw food buddy. I love you “D”.raisedbed_LFE

Now I’m living in Orlando, consulting full time at a juice bar called Juice’d. I’ve got a garden, fruit trees and even a worm farm. I plan on returning to more frequent posts, videos, recipes and more.

Are all chia's created equal…

Folks that know me or even strangers that have happened to converse with me about live foods know that I’m a huge fan of chia seed. From what I’ve read and my personal experience chia is a staple in my diet… replacing and surpassing flax seed in my recipes and my diet. There seems to be a lot of buzz around chia these days and I ain’t talking about the novelty pet. There’s white chia, black chia, chia that’s called “salba”… as if that would make it different… wild harvested, chemical free… blah, blah, blah…

A little overwhelming at times, folks may throw the baby out with the bath water and just give up on the pursuit for purchasing chia. Fortunately I was able to connect with a reliable wholesaler in the state of Florida that I trust. I buy chia in bulk for myself and my students. Below is a pasted copy of an email I exchanged with Lenore of Omega 3 Chia.

Adam, I really love it when my friends and clients send me emails of “stuff” they hear or read.

Salba, the albino/white chia is NOT superior to dark chia.  Logic:  we have always known that dark fruits and vegetables are more nutrient dense than white fruits and vegetables, i.e.:  broccoli vs. cauliflower, spinach vs. iceberg lettuce.  The dark chia has an ORAC value of 98 and vs. albino at 70.  The study is attached.

Dr. Wayne Coates’ affiliation is with LifeMax / Mila.  They “micro-slice” the chia.  First, anytime you break or crush a seed the oxidation process begins.  The seed was created in a “whole form” so why does it have to be crushed?  It should be refrigerated.  And they do NOT own 98% or all the chia fields in the world.  If that were true how come we have 1.2 million pounds?  I’ve heard all their claims.  Some are true and some are not.

Wayne Coates is a scientist and I respect his authorship of the chia book.  We have spoken on several occasions when I had questions.

It’s difficult to know who is telling the truth.  And if I were a consumer investigating all the chia stuff I would be frustrated.  All people want to know is the truth…no hype, just what’s real

Thank you Adam for putting our link to your site.  Let me know how I can help you too.
