My new line of super-healthy, totally organic food toppings has only been on the shelves for a couple of weeks, so I’m stoked to say Ra Energy is already making a splash!
This week, the Vancouver Sun is talking about companies that specialize in organic, non-GMO food- stuff that makes you feel amazing and leaves your conscience clear.
Toronto-to-B.C. transplant Adam Hart and Richmond-based Sun Rich Fresh Foods have just launched a new line of food toppings made from shelled hemp, unshelled sesame, sprouted buckwheat, chia and flax called Ra Energy.
Though similar to breakfast products such as Holy Crap and Qi’a, Ra Energy is packaged in packets that easily slip into a purse or lunch bag and shakers that are meant to stay on the table throughout the day.
A naturally sweet version can be added to conventional cereals or yogurt, while a garlic-flavoured version is suited to salads, soups and hot foods.
Company co-founder Adam Hart came up with the formulation while tinkering with his diet after being diagnosed as pre-diabetic at just 25 years old.
“I was pre-diabetic, suffered from food allergies and asthmatic,” said Hart. “I was already on several medications, but when I was prescribed Lipitor to control my cholesterol I knew I had to change things.”
Since then, Hart has transformed himself physically with exercise and a diet that includes whole plant-based foods, especially seeds, as its cornerstone. He works now as a corporate wellness coach, chef and author of The Power of Food.
“I never filled that Lipitor prescription,” he said.
Ra Energy products are appearing now in Overwaitea and Save-On-Foods stores.
