2021 is not over yet but we already are aware of some important changes we went through this year. All parts of wellness had a shakeup —how we work out, what we eat, the products we put on our bodies, the way we rest — this means we ate healthier food, consumed products that are cleaner, more natural, and have fewer ingredients. Whole plant foods are one of the biggest trends and rightfully so since they support both self-care and earth care.
Keep reading on to learn more about the biggest wellness changes we made in 2021 and what we learned from that! And if you want to stay in the know about all things about our Raw Living Spirulina, sign-up for our newsletter here!
WHOLE PLANT FOOD CHANGE
We totally changed our eating habits in 2021. The pandemic has transformed Americans’ relationship with food. We prioritized eating plans that are simpler, healthier, and more sustainable for ourselves, our communities, and the planet.
According to a report from PwC, 51 percent of Americans reported a “significant increase” in-home cooking in 2021 and 79 percent of them enjoyed cooking at home.
Food that is prepared at home by using freshly sourced local produce, is the best food for you and your family. We believe that freshly picked whole plant food keeps you healthy because of the richness of living vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you absorb, and they are responsible for the growth and function of your immune cells. Healthy immune cells mean a strong immune system and a healthy body.
Supplementation is not always the right choice.
Unfortunately, most supplements, i.e. pills, powders, potions, etc. that are promoted as “healthy and immune-boosting” actually don’t work. Most of them are synthetic, chemical isolates, and not recognizable by the human body. So, the body will try to get rid of them by putting at work your immune system. As you might know, supplements are not regulated by the FDA, a fact that makes it hard for you to know what is accurate.
The good news is that Raw Living Spirulina isn’t a supplement – it’s real and it always works! Raw Living Spirulina is the whole food, freshly grown in Florida, harvested a day or two before you consume. Its natural wholeness has not been altered by any processes. It is a living, complete food that your body recognizes as vital nutrition immediately.
Just from the data, we have a tremendous increase in demand for our Raw Living Spirulina in 2021, we agree that people chose to be healthier by eating more nutrition-dense living foods.
Another important change is about alignment—nutrition that aligns with our individual health needs, and food choices that align with values like sustainability.
Climate change has made us transform our relationship with food. More than ever, “environmental concerns are weighing bigger on peoples’ minds as we’re seeing that every year we are getting closer to a tipping point where if we continue on the path we are on…this world could become near impossible to live on for all species—including our own,” says Dana Hunnes, Ph.D., RD, adjunct assistant professor at the University of California Los Angeles Fielding School of Public Health.
My hope is “that people will look more towards whole plant food choices, which are significantly better for the environment than consuming dead animals and their secretions,” Dr. Hunnes says—a safe bet given that sales of plant-based products, like oat milk and alt-meat, have soared during the pandemic.
Did you know that a spoonful of fresh Raw Living Spirulina contains all of nature’s micronutrients required by the body to function optimally including a rainbow of Phytonutrients, Amino Acids, Antioxidants, Omega fatty Acids, Enzymes, Vitamins, Minerals? According to a 2012 NASA study, 1 pound of fresh Spirulina is equal to 1000 pounds of fresh vegetables. And according to the USDA, the vitamins alone obtained from just 4.0 g of spirulina are equivalent to or more than those obtained by eating more than 100 g of terrestrial bright-colored vegetables.
Now is the time to experience this delicious gourmet, 100% bioavailable whole food, enzymatically active sunlight energy that will dramatically optimize your health cell by cell and this is why we believe it is one of the perfect plant food choices in 2021.
Our Raw Living Spirulina is consciously produced here in the USA. We grow our Spirulina in enclosed greenhouses in Vero Beach Florida in the center of organic farming country. We use only the highest quality plant-based organic food-grade nutrients available.
We maintain our water quality, temperature, PH and only feed our Spirulina natural and organic minerals and Florida sunshine. We monitor our growing operations on a daily basis with routine daily checks.
Our water source originates from the center Floridian Aquifer which is sandwiched between the surface aquifer and the ultra-deepwater by different subterranean layers and is accessed from between 400 and 800 feet below the surface where it is infused with mineral-rich pure ocean water. It naturally rises to the surface on the farm under high pressure. It is also highly mineralized making it ideal for Spirulina and the subsequent nutritional value. Vero Beach is known to have some of the best water in Florida which is another reason why we chose this location. Our water also does not contain chlorine, fluoride, or harsh chemicals found in municipal water systems; see lab tests on our website.
We are on a mission to provide the world with the most powerful superfood with the intent of helping humanity regain optimal health while improving the ecology of the planet. We are a green company, literally. Spirulina comes in glass jars and is packed in compostable boxes. We also offer our customers free shipping labels if they decide to ship back their boxes for reuse.
One of our customers said that about us:
“Raw Living Spirulina is a company whose mission is to change the health of humanity without destroying the health of the planet by providing nature’s most perfect food to all that seek life. When a company sets a mission like this in motion, stars must align. Raw Living Spirulina is those stars.”
So, changes have been made in 2021, but for the first time in a long time, there are positive steps being taken towards better nutrition and better health by consuming more fresh food with a more couscous mind.
We, Timothy & Georgiana White, are health educators and huge advocates for Whole Plant nutrition, and seeing this shift in the world makes us very happy.
