We love Seaweed in our household. It is a crisp, flavorful snack, ideal in soups, salads, stir-fries and also with Primed ingredients rolled to make Primed Sushi for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Seaweed is green vegetation that’s been marinating in mineral-dense seawater for its entire life, and when you eat seaweed, besides being a good source of fiber you get the best source of iodine (helps keep your metabolism up), plus magnesium, manganese, iron, zinc, and tons of other trace minerals that you might be (probably are) missing out on. Seaweed also includes protein, antioxidants and omega-3 fats.
“Seawed also contains a range of indigestible polysaccharides that have the unique ability to bind to heavy metals (like lead, mercury and radium). They then pass through the gut without being absorbed, and consequently any toxins picked up as they pass through are excreted”. Renee from Planet Organic, U.K.

My parents have my best interest at heart. I love them but they can be annoying (it’s an old people thing). They have been leading a Primed Lifestyle for around 10 months now and I have been “forced” to go along for the ride because they buy all the food in the house! I actually don’t mind.

Some things such as city pollution and traffic stress are out of our control. However, we are in control of what we place in our mouths and what goes into our homes. To feed our bodies we aim to be Primed and take great care to eat nutritiously, but what about what goes on your body and in via other ways besides food (toothpaste and perfumes for example)? Can these have a harmful affect on your body?
Your skin is your largest organ and easily absorbs chemicals and other harmful products that come into contact with it. When your skin absorbs these harmful products it then is absorbed into your blood stream. Your mouth is also a direct route to your blood stream.
With this in mind, here are some easy to implement tips to lessen your (and that of your family) contact with harmful products that can have negative health consequences on your hormones, body and mind. Bear in mind that children and youths are at a greater risk than adults.

Being Primed for your Life does not mean you miss out on the good things in life. It actually means by eating better and more nutritious food you live longer and better.
Most of us have a sweet tooth to one degree or another but one bite of a sweet sugar laden cake is enough to raise your blood sugar levels and leave you with a bad taste in your mouth and pangs of regret when the sweet treat just didn’t taste as good as it looked.
Well, what about a Primed sweet treat where you can have a nice slice and not only enjoy the flavors but it wont take your sugar levels on a roller coaster ride?

I am not a scientist and really do not know if a microwave is good or bad. However, I know it does not make my food taste better and has made it worse on a number of previous occasions. I personally believe it actually lessens the nutrients in the food.
Besides, the words to “microwave food” conjures similar words like to to “zap” or “nuke” my food! I don’t want nuked food.
Being Primed for your Life is simply trying to maximize the nutritional quality of your food and drinks so as to feed your mind and body optimally so you can enjoy more time for life. We all want to live well and live long so the better your nutrition the better you will live daily and in the long-term. Nobody is 100% sure whether heating your food in a microwave affects the nutritional value of that food with many varying opinions on this HEATED subject!
However, given the uncertainty on whether a microwave is good or bad (I might be wrong) I think it might be best to err on the side of safety. Yes, a microwave is fast and convenient, but being Primed means taking more time to prepare and enjoy your food.
Why would you even contemplate using a microwave (given the uncertainty of how it might affect the life sustaining nutrients in your food when you have better and safer alternatives.
