What is in your food?

Okay, so I missed the grand re-opening of Vons last night. From the looks of it the turnout was pretty good. The Grizzly had a nice article about SOL Food Market so I thought it might be a good time to ask–what is in your food?

Yuck!

Many of you know that I have been changing my diet over the past ten months. Wheat gluten–I’m off it, hormonal meat–I’m off it (except at the Moose BBQ…okay!) and then dairy too. What is a GG to eat?

If you read the above article it is a bit disturbing how we are not only polluting our earth but also everything on it including ourselves. Glad I am in the Cancer Project Food class which ends this next Monday.

By the way did you see this Fire in the Grid? I got an email a while back and then WHAM it finally hit Big Bear. You might like the video better–Fire in the Grid can be accessed at Google Video (85 minutes) or you can see Fire in the Grid in segments at YouTube…here is part one

    It is really scary that plants are capable of uptaking antibiotics into their cell structures. This is especially scary for me, as I suffer from multiple antibiotic allergy, as do MANY people nowdays. Does that mean that I can have an anaphylatic reaction if I eat red leaf lettuce, a radish or carrot in a salad that has plant matter that has taken up an antibiotic that I am allergic to?
    I think the Government neds to step up to the plate and take emergency measures upon this problem.

    “You are what you eat” is a phrase that seems appropriate.

    I doubt the government will–look at all the imported foods from other countries without the same standards we have.

    Say wheat gluten from China anyone? How about pesticides from Mexico–and water quality.

    Many old folk medicine practitioners use wild grown or crafted herbs because they are stronger in their “essence” and unaltered genetically.

    This is why garden grown foods taste better (correction–have flavor) and why consuming animal protein and other products from animals that have consumed antibiotics and who knows what else…is not a good choice.

    I WON’T get into the humane issue of our livestock practices but same issue. Old beliefs were that when you consumed the flesh of a creature you also took on the essence.

    Hmm, how soon we forget!
