Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw
  • 2 heads organic broccoli (stems and flowers)
  • 1 small organic carrot
  • 1/4 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 c dried organic cranberries
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1/3 c apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp sea vegetables
  • toasted sesame seeds for garnish
  • black pepper

Trim broccoli and cut it into large chunks. Put through a food processor using the grating blade, or use a mandoline to cut them into thin slices. The stems and leaves can be used along with the tops. Grate the carrot at the same time.

Toss the grated vegetables with the Sea veggies, red onion and cranberries in a large bowl. Meanwhile, whisk the dressing ingredients (olive oil, apple cider vinegar, raw honey and pepper) and pour over the salad. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds.


Benefits of Sea Vegetables

Raw Superfood

From the ancient Greeks to the Japanese, sea vegetables have been eaten by peoples of various cultures for thousands of years. And no small wonder, as they are one of the most mineral-rich foods around, containing all the minerals that are found in human blood. In fact, researchers claim that the chemical composition of the oceans are very similar to that of our own bodies. And sea vegetables absorb all of those nutrients, unlike land vegetables which are often grown in nutritionally-depleted soil on large commercial farms.

Sea vegetables are a super food. High in iodine and Vitamin K, they are also a good source of B vitamins, iron and calcium. Plant compounds called ligans are also present in sea vegetables, which have been shown to inhibit excess estrogen and have cancer-protective properties. They are also a natural anti-inflammatory.

Schinoussa has six powerhouse superfoods algae combined in a raw living state with wild crafted flax powder. The six algae work in synergy to provide the body with all vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytochemicals called xanthins. Spirulina is known as a complete food providing all amino acids, and high B vitamins. It is also the most absorbable form of B’s, better than animal source. Chlorella is the most powerful source of chlorophyll, better than any land grass. Heavy metal, detox and blood purifying benefits are true to Chlorella. Irish Moss, Dulse and Red Marine Algae are high in all the trace minerals and powerful antioxidants. These work in synergy to provide all the xanthins needed to have anti-aging and disease preventative nutrients. The immune system is the key to great health. Algae contains all the natural nutrients needed to keep the immune system strong and healthy. Wild crafted flax is not a filler! It is a soluble and insoluble fiber added to absorb toxins, heavy metals, viruses, bacteria and pollutants out of the digestive system when algae do there detox process. This unique formula helps to prevent detox systems. Only 1 tsp. (4.5) per day is recommended. 2 tsp is for those who build up to it or needed for therapeutic purposes.
