If you knew a food could dissolve sticky phlegm, or bind and remove heavy metals and radiation, would you try it, Sam-I-Am?
If you knew that safe and healthy proteins and fats could grow off most forest waste, would you choose those more often than less-safe, synthetic-chemical-contaminated fats and proteins?
Not everyone considers seaweed and mushrooms delectable. But if you haven’t explored adding them to your meals, or to the diet of someone who needs to recover health (like most of us with autism), I encourage you to at least think about it!
This is just the health facts; for recipes, ask and ye shall receive...
If you’ve ever eaten sashimi (what we North Americans call sushi), or lived on a sea coast, then you’ve likely eaten some seaweed. Highly nourishing, seaweeds are also medicinal, and many support detoxification also.
While we tend not to think of mushrooms as anything but extra flavour in a meal, mushrooms are high in protein and good fats. Some fungi are extremely potent medicines, but all edible mushrooms tested have shown health benefits.
There are restrictions on when and how you can eat seaweeds and mushrooms when you’re dealing with gut dysbiosis, the way most autistics are.
However, these foods are profoundly worth building into the menu when it’s possible without aggravating yeast or parasitic cleanses, and when the complex carbohydrates in seaweeds have been predigested through lacto-fermentation.
