Birds And Beans Café - Mimico by the lake

We dropped by the Birds and Beans Café today, where we spent a pleasant afternoon on the patio and then over at the Lakeshore! We purchased a couple of teas to try that are organic and fair trade. The owner also sells organic, fair trade and "Bird-friendly" certified coffees which meet the requirements for organic certification, as well as ensures that they maintain the forest cover - which provides habitat for birds and other wildlife. You can learn more about "Bird-friendly" coffee here.

Below: Photos taken while hanging out at the Birds and Beans Café patio and the Lakeshore at Mimico. Enjoy!

Raw Zucchini Spaghetti

Raw Zucchini Spaghetti topped off with some raw homemade tomato sauce is great for the summer! It's easy to make and extremely healthy for your body. Enzyme researcher Dr. Edward Howell treated chronic degenerative diseases with a raw food and juice diet that resulted in healing! The upper portion of the stomach does not secrete enzymes. It provides the space for enzymes to digest foods, allowing the metabolic enzymes to rebuild or repair (cure) the body of any deficiency or toxicity. Food that sits in our stomach, doing nothing (cooked foods) for half an hour to an hour starts to become acidic at which point the stomach enzyme pepsin takes over (digestive enzymes), which results in the use of metabolic enzymes, that can be better used to repair the body.
 "Neither vitamins, minerals nor hormones can do any work - without enzymes."- Dr. Edward Howell
