Food and Water Quality
It’s an interesting thing (and not in a good interesting way ) how hard people work to bend systems put in place to give people both protection and choices. Imagine if all that effort went instead to actually making the world a better place!
I’m sure you have heard the word “greenwashing”. We tend to think of that term as one that pertains to the cosmetics, household cleaners, and personal care products world. “Those” who employ their crafty ways to make a product appear clean and good for all of us, when in fact….. the product is NOT that way at all. They use all the “right” terminology to make you think they are “clean” through their advertising (and perhaps so you won’t take the time to read the actual ingredients ), when in fact, the product is loaded with badness. (Thank goodness for Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner line and the personal care products….. we can actually trust what the label and advertising say…… although don’t believe me…. read the labels yourself )
Sadly, greenwashing in the food industry is a problem too. Do these chickens look happy? I’m sure when someone buys these “organic” chickens at the grocery store, they think they are getting some formerly happy free-range birds….. all while paying a PREMIUM price for them. (This happens all the time in the egg industry too btw.)
Best practice? Know your farmer personally. And if that isn’t feasible, know someone who does know the farmer. AND, if that isn’t feasible, find a place where full transparency is in order. Here are some of my favorite places to buy chicken. (We have our own personal beef source from our farm).
Let’s help our fellow peeps out….. where do you source truly organic free-range animal protein?
Whaaaaat??? Oh, my word ya’ll….. these were sampled at the Convention this year and they are YUMMY! Like, addictive yummy! I’m so excited and just placed my order. The Zesty Salsa is your healthy answer to spicy chips while the Sweet Cinnamon satisfies that sweet craving in a good-for-you way, and finally…. the Ancient Sea Salt…. for those of us who love and appreciate the benefits of sea salt (it’s good for you! …… ditch the white table salt and use the healthy stuff!)
Did you try it at the Convention this year? Which one was your favorite?
This is not the only carcinogen in our food friends…. many more have been identified and banned in many countries but are allowed in the USA. Why would that be? #weareeachworthmoreasacommodityifwearesickthanifwearehealthy
Read your labels and protect your health with the application of knowledge.
Next to your relationship with Jesus, your health is the most important thing in your Iife.
I’ve had a garden for years, and this has been the most productive one yet! We read about electroculture gardening in the early spring and decided to give it a try. Same seed company (although I did add some fun flowers from Grams Gardens this year). If you are a gardener and have tried the electroculture addition to your gardening toolbox, I’d love to hear your results too!
