from FoodTank

Reading food labels can be a challenge, especially when trying to make choices to support a more sustainable food system. Food and nutrition labels around the world can include a lot of information, and not all of it is easy to decipher...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: So many things to read on our food. What does it mean to be organic? What do the ingrediants have to list? GMO, Food Sustainability, and more. Here's a list of how to wade through what should be on the food we buy.

The Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook - Don't forget Rover, Ralph, or Rin Tin Tin this holiday season! And certainly we want our beloved pooches to have nothing less than organic. What better way to give all year long to our best four-pawed friends than original, organic biscuit recipes. Woof!...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Books are a great holiday gift. They can show you care about someone and what they have interests and passions for, and they are a gift that can give the whole year through. Here are a few suggestions to ship to someone you love or treat a special friend.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: 90 percent of Christmas trees are grown with some sort of pesticide. Might be time to consider going organic on something that will be the centerpiece of the home for the holidays.

 

Organic Living

Buying local fruit and veg from your farmers market is healthy for you, the environment and the local and national economy. Support our farming industry, cut down on food miles, and ensure that your food is fresher and more nutritious. Even local veg in the supermarket will have been taken by lorry to storage depots and packaging factories which could be hundreds of miles away (sometimes abroad) before being sent back to the area in which it was produced. A typical Christmas meal may travel 49,000 miles...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The holidays can be an easy time to stray from an organic lifestyle. Reaffirm the commitment to go organic during the holidays with these ideas.

He’s left. Or you’ve finally ended it what you knew was coming on for months. How to survive these next few weeks, months, years? No reason to leave the organic game plan. Taking the time to grieve for a few days can be done without sending your health entirely out the door. Start with number one the moment you are officially single again and work your way to number 10...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Ending a relationship can be very difficult time in everyone's life. There's no reason to stop the organic life style when our hearts are broken. Take the time to grieve, but doing it organically will give your body and soul a bit more strength for the new life ahead.

There isn’t a day that passes that I don’t feel guilty about a dangerous, toxic, or bad-for-me product our family consumes or uses. We occasionally buy water in plastic bottles. I go to the grocery several times and sometimes forget my cloth, reusable bags. After a few weeks, I’m stunned at the pile of plastic bags in the corner. I dutifully recycle my paper, plastics, and metals, yet I know recycling isn’t a solution, just a band aide to a bigger problem.

So many of our conveniences trace back or our love of plastics. I recently watched The Graduate again and was stunned at how accurate and ironic the iconic line said to Benjamin as he debated what to do with his future:

I want to say one word to you. Just one word…Plastics.

by Dr. Edward Group

How do you sort out the differences between local, organic and local-organic foods? Which is better for our health and better for the planet? What the heck does it mean to be organic anyway?...

 

Editor's Note: Gazing at the vegetables in the market can be a colorful, candy delight for the eyes. But wait, approaching the labels, signs, and stickers on all that produce can change the delight to a confusing day of choices. One says "organic" yet the other says "locally grown." What is the difference...

Most likely, if you exist on this planet, you're full of a few toxins. Even if we eat organically and mindfully live in a place where the water is good and the air is fresh, toxic chemicals entered into our systems somewhere along the way.

A few interesting videos quickly explain the extent of toxins in our blood. In longer format, Bill Moyers did a two-hour documentary report called, Trade Secrets about the impact of toxic chemicals on the public’s health...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The unseen can do much harm. These two reports can open our eyes to what we are ingesting.

 

Organic Living


by Dr. Edward F. Group

Modern society has created a sad state for our over-processed livers. Anytime we overeat or eat processed or fried foods, and, anytime we are exposed to environmental pollutants or stress, the liver becomes overworked and overloaded. When the liver is taxed, it cant process toxins and fat in an efficient way...
