Middle Beach Lodge, close to Tofino…stood back, marveled at beautiful spread of vegetables displayed on the table for guest evening meal. Courtesy Chef Dominic Maltais, included Roasted Vegetables Lemon and Rosemary. Guest wryly winked “If all vegetables tasted like this, I would turn vegetarian.” Vegetables continually point to wellness…we eat too few, but too many net carbohydrates including sugars, too much protein. When young and growing, protein important…probably remains so to early thirties…but at that point a subtle, important transition! For longevity concentrate on Mitochondrial Health. That at cellular level…and it is here that good things associated with vegetables, especially multicolored array, perform! This website endorses Healthy Lifestyle enabled by Middle Beach…Sand, Walks, Sunshine, HIIT Exercise, Gym enabled, Good Food, Natural Vitamin D, Natural Photomodulation even at Sea level…lots of that with Surfing, and also Relaxing! Finally great fellowship among guests! Look at the incredible video below, and immediately their amazing number revisits understood.
