Special Day for Nutrich Beets Today May 10, 2015 12:11

Today is Mothers’ Day. Nutrich Beets' principal Anan’s mom introduced him the Beetroot not only as a vegetable but she taught practically though not scientifically the medicinal value of it. Now that origin hailed from a ‘Naturopath’ family has evolved and emerged as a beetroot based business with a mission of ‘Beetrootifying our food habits’ and with a vision of ‘bringing out as many food products primarily made of beetroot as possible’. This is one of the great examples of how a person’s life can be very much positively impacted by his/her mother and through how she can contribute to the world. Great Salute to that mom who was the first mentor for this business.

Today, Nutrich Beets has achieved its one of the main dreams of supplying Nutrich Beet Products to a multi branched large stores. Yes, currently you can find our Nutrich Beet Ketchup, Beet Sauce, Beet Juice Drink at the shelves of all four locations of Red River Coop food stores (https://www.rrcoop.com/locations-food.php )  at Grant Park, St.Vital, Southdale, and Main Street. Red River Coop food store locations celebrated their first year birth anniversary couple of days ago.

Red River Coop not only ordered Nutrich Beets but also another 14 small scale local food producers in Manitoba who are proud partners of BuyManitoba program run by Manitoba Food Producers Associations. BuyManitoba played a great role of connecting RedRiver Coop and these 15 screened small scale local food producers. 

All these 15 food producers sampled their products in one of the four locations of Red River Coop. Nutrich Beets, on its part, provided demo at Grant Park location on Friday between 1pm to 6pm and Saturday between Noon to 5 pm. For next two months, Buy Manitoba products are on Manager’s special sale. See the effect of Buy Manitoba Spirit.

After Quebec, Manitobans especially Winnipeggers realized the need and started supporting the local foods greatly in Canada.

What is Local Foods?

  • The food products that cannot be industrially easily made
  • Mostly ByHand made with care and love
  • Natural (No chemicals)
  • No compromise on taste, quality, and ingredients where as the industrially made products were compromised due to the mechanical restrictions and to targeting higher shelf life
  • Made with local ingredients

29 Years Before on this day at Chernobyl! The role of beetroot to combat irradiation effects in Eastern Europe April 27, 2015 11:32

Many friends of mine, who are living in Chernobyl irradiated areas in Belarus eat beetroot or other vegetables which act against free radicals.

Mikkai on July 12, 2011 at 2:06 pm said:

The half-life and biological significance of a radionuclide is not affected by cleanup, elimination or cure or eating herbs. It is a dangerous euphemism.

In search of hope (which is normal and human and important!) or for more money (busniess men and esoteric people) more and more people accept the myth that you can “clean” or “cure” or “eliminate” radiation (which is un scientific and lacking ethic).

It is dangerous to think that you can clean or cure radiation. Because this can lead to “accepting radiation and living in an irradiated area” – happening in Belarus and the Ukraine. Radiation is not dirt. Radiation is not a virus. EVACUATION! Not curing or cleaning or elimination.

Radionucleides (Cesium 137, Strontium 90, Iodine 131, Plutonium, soon Americium) are already in the food chain in Japan.

Many friends of mine, who are living in Chernobyl irradiated areas in Belarus eat beetroot or other vegetables which act against free radicals. The production of free radicals of Oxygen (O² with a negative electric charge) is caused… by ionising effect of the low radiation there.

The damage to the immune system due to low-level radiation can be controlled to some extent by measures that strengthen the immune system: antioxidant, vitamin C, vitamin E. If you have low-level radiation in addition to other mechanisms, the formation of free radicals by antioxidants such as vitamin C or E can be partly lifted. However this is NOT and NEVER a shield or any kind of protection against radiation, mind you.

with kind regards,

What Day Water Day; Earth Day; Fire Day; Wind Day; and Space Day should be globally celebrated? April 24, 2015 14:06

What day Water day; Earth Day; Fire day; Wind day; and Space day?

The Universe consists of five Great Elements: Water, Earth, Fire, Wind, and Space. The World celebrates

Global Day for Great Elements

Existing Date & the Logics

Proposed Date & the Astro Logics

World Water Day

March 22nd. By this date, officially the Winter season ends and the Spring season starts in many countries in the northern hemisphere. The frozen streams, tributaries, rivers, lakes, distributories, channels, and sea start melting  and water starts flowing by this date.

As per the Indian Vedic Astrology, the ‘Pisces’ month falls between March 15th to April 13th. The planet Venus is at its peak and most powerful during this month. Venus is meant for Rain,Water bodies, Love, and Wealth. Perfect time to Spring up. So March 22nd is the right date.

World Earth Day

April 22nd. People especially the environmentalists, green thinkers, and eco-activists promote this day to clean up all garbage left on the earth. Generally after Winter and early spring, all the snow heaps and patches would have melted by this time and what is left out is the garbage. This is the right time the citizens to come up to clean those left out garbage last year  so that a beautiful summer can be welcomed.

As per the Indian Vedic Astrology, the ‘Aries’ month falls between April 14th to May 14th. The sun is at its peak and most powerful at this month. Sun, as a planet, is the one which is most energizing anything in universe comparing to other planets. That’s why the horoscope starts with Aries not other zodiac signs. Similarly, the earth is the most powerful elements comparing to other great elements. So observing Earth Day in this Aries month is the right thing ie, April 22nd is most suitable date.

World Fire Day

This day is not widely celebrated. In Canada & USA the Fire Prevention Week is celebrated in the week in which October 9th falls. For more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_Prevention_Week

According to Indian Vedic Astrology the October 9th falls on the month Virgo which is meant for the planet ‘Mercury’ not 'Mars' the fire planet. So this date is not the right date to observe the fire prevention but would be suitable for Afforestation.  However the astro month Scorpio that falls between November 15th to December 15th is meant for the planet ‘Mars’ which is at its peak and most powerful during this month. Many Fire & Bloody accidents would occur closer to this period. That’s why Remembrance Day like sacrifice appreciation day is observed on Nov 11th.  In order to worship the Great Element Fire, Most South Indians light lamps in their homes observing ‘Karthigai Festival’ during 3rd or 4th week of November to protect the humans from fire. So a suitable day for observing this World Fire Day should be November 22nd

World Wind Day

Europe celebrates June 15th as the World Wind Energy Day recognized by Global Wind Energy Council. Mid June is the time the replacement of fossil fuel power with Wind power was high in Europe especially Britain. Wind day is the only day decided based on business perspectives. 

In Indian Vedic Astrology the period between May 15th and June 15th falls on ‘Taurus’ month which is meant for the planet Venus but the ‘Moon’ is peak and powerful at this period.  ‘Ox / Bullock’ is the zodiac symbol for Taurus that is what symbolically used in Stock Exchanges. A date May 22nd that falls on this Taurus month would be more suitable to celebrate World Wind Day rather than Jun 15th.

World Space Day

Currently it is celebrated between October 4th to 10th. The choice of dates was based on recognition of two important dates in space history: the launch of the first human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik 1, on October 4, 1957; and the signing of the Outer Space Treaty on October 10, 1967.[2]

Many computerised works are necessary for space administration. As per Indian Vedic Astrology the period between September 15 to October 15 is meant for Virgo Month when the planet Mercury is peak and powerful. NASA’s MAVEN http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAVEN  reached and got inserted into Mars on September 22nd. And India’s MOM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_Orbiter_Mission was orbited on Sep 24th. This is the first satellite positioned in Mars on its first attempt itself in human history. So September 22nd would be suitable for celebrating World Space Day.

 

 Why do we need to choose the date 22nd for celebrating great elements day. 22nd is a number meant for achieving some thing that looks impossible. 2 + 2 = 4. The number 4 numerologically represents the work of Dragon, The 'Raaghu' in terms of Indian Vedic Astrology. Also for earth and water days, we have already widely & successfully celebrating on the date 22nd .            


Scenario & Policy Advocacy Report on Small Scale Food & Direct Farm Marketing in Manitoba March 15, 2015 08:33

Last year, Minister of Manitoba Agriculture, Food, & Rural Devt announced a distinct attention should be given to the growing Small Scale Food sector and Direct Farm Marketing in Manitoba. A group was formed to study this newly emerging sector. Here is the report of this group that was recently published. There are many interesting facts, ideas and recommendations well written in this report. This report concludes that the bond between Consumer & Producer is extremely high in this Small Scale Food initiatives. More than 90% of Manitobans are ready to spend for Small Scale Foods similar or more than the cost they spend at Major Grocery Stores.  How ever the food safety standards should be self monitored by this group. This report has addressed many grey areas. Now this newly emerging sector gets wide attention and will influence the life-style of manitobans very near future. No doubt about it. Following is the link of that report

Nutrition Month March: Wheat... Meat... Beet... March 04, 2015 13:51


March is the National Nutrition Month in Canada. This is the perfect time to reflect on our nutrition perspectives.  Generally cereals particularly wheat satisfies the human energy need. Wheat is eaten in many forms like bread, bun, doughnut, or any other such baked items. Wheat is converted into sucrose and glucose and finally utilised by our body as energy in certain amount of calories. Wheat could also be the source of carbohydrate. Meat being animal protein satisfies the human need of protein and lipid the other two essential nutrients for meatarians. For vegetarians, the pulses and dairy products substitute the meat’s role. Those above nutrients may be essential for living but cannot guarantee a healthy living or a nutritious eating. Because, there are some side effects due to those wheat and meat or pulses or dairies in terms of gluten, improper in production, processing, and preparing of foods. Only vegetables, fruits, greens, and herbs can guarantee such healthy living because they have the most essential vitamins, minerals, and phyto-nutrients. They can also fix the side effects of consuming wheat & meat. There is a vegetable that is time-tested; part of almost all the cultures across the world; rich source of most important nutrients; a supplementing super food; most intense of vegetables. That is Beetroot. Fatty people who are cautiously looking for low calorie food should know, a 100g of raw beetroot has only 43 calories which is 2% of recommended daily allowance. It also has 0% fat & 0% cholesterol; 10% fibre; 10% iron; 27% folate; 6% magnesium; 14% manganese; 8% copper; 8% vitamin C; and 7% potassium of RDA. It also has most essential phyto nutrients like beta carotene 20 microgram and Betaine 129 mg. Beetroot is a vegetable but you can make a juice out of it like a fruit as it has good vit C content. It is more than equivalent to a prenatal vitamin tablet; more than a digestive help supplement. Nitric Oxide, the magic component in beetroot widens the blood vessel thereby reduce or prevent the risk of heart attack. It also reduces the oxygen uptake there by one who consumes beetroot or juice feels stronger as he/she needs comparatively less oxygen to do a same work.  Betaine, another magic component & high anti-oxidant in beetroot fights against cancer and increases the hemoglobin content in the blood so that oxygen is carried to all the cells that reduce the blood pressure as well as anti-age the body. So what else can be called super food other than Beetroot.
