Nutrition: Performance Food – Seed Bread


This super nutrient-dense seed bread is the perfect pre and post workout food, and a great alternative for breakfast and an on-the-go snack.

1 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup flax seeds
½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 ½ cups rolled oats
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
4 Tbsp. psyllium seed husks (3 Tbsp. if using psyllium husk powder)
1 tsp. fine grain sea salt
1 Tbsp. maple syrup (optional)
3 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 ½ cups water

In a parchment lined loaf pan, combine all dry ingredients. Whisk maple syrup, oil and water together in a separate bowl. Add mixture to the dry ingredients and combine until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick, adding 1-2 teaspoons water if dough is too thick to stir. Smooth top and let sit at room temperature for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Bake bread for 20 minutes, then remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down, removing parchment, directly on a rack, and bake for another 30-40 minutes (it should feel and look baked). Let cool completely before slicing with bread knife.

Approximately 15g of protein per 1″ slice.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Nutrition: Is a Juice Detox/Cleanse Healthy?


Time magazine recently ran this piece.  We agree in principle this is applicable to many things you buy premade, one size fits all, etc.

The goal of a detox is to reset and replenish the system. Individualizing it by a person’s individual blood-type, health and overall condition is the defining way to provide the precursor for a “reset.” Any weight-loss experienced is a by-product and often due to fluid retention and other areas of inflammation.

Providing individual high-nutrients targeting health and intestinal health are the priority – anything else is not doing your body any favours and could be in-fact a form of snake-oil…

The body takes a cumulative tool inside from dietary, mental, and physical stresses. The goal is to bring it back to a better spot to cope, and, hopefully instill better habits and nutrition going forward.
