RECIPE - ABALONE ROCK POCKETS


At Choose life, live it, do it; we believe in the whole food way of living! We believe that eating a wide variety of food gives you the maximum amount of nutrients!!! 
Our REAL FOOD chef is a passionate hunter and gatherer. He is a strong believer that hunting should ONLY be done for nutritional benefits, its all about the circle of life and helping each other out... We understand and respect that everyone has different belief's but he believes that the traditional people were the healthiest; research shows that the aboriginals were known to be the healthiest in the world and they ate the most diverse range of foods getting the broadest range of nutrients by hunting and gathering. In todays society, it is hard to get out in the outdoors but it is important that we make time and enjoy it. 

This leads us to our REAL FOOD CHEF's first recipe...

Seafood is one of the highest nutrient rich foods! Growing up on the far south coast and having so many great outdoor opportunities; at choose life we love seafood!

ABALONE ROCK POCKETS

Not many people have heard of abalone but it is a delicacy. It is dived for and it is very limited. It can be purchased at the fish market and the public may collect a maximum of 2 when recreationally diving and this is very important to remember. But if you can get your hands on these little babies just once; you have to try it.

How is it good for us??
