One reason I like to eat FOOD!

It was recently pointed out to me that it is common knowledge that I have "strict dietary rules and that is why I do not eat at other people's houses"...hmmmm:-) I always find it interesting to hear what others opinions are of what I do, even though their facts are a little exaggerated:-) It's true, I do in some ways have some rules. Rule #1...I eat only food. If it's not food, I don't eat it:-) 

ANYONE ELSE HAVE THAT RULE??? *lots of smiling* on.

Pass The Butter Please.      
This is interesting    

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys.  When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.   
It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.  How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings.       

DO YOU KNOW The difference between margarine and butter?     

Read on to the end...gets very interesting!       

Both have the same amount of calories.    

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams for margarine.    

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.    

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.   

has many nutritionalbenefits where margarine has a few and      
only because they are added

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.    

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than100 years.    

And now, for Margarine.    

Very High in Trans fattyacids.    

Triples risk of coronary heart disease.  
Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)    

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times.     

Lowers quality of breast milk.   

Decreases immune response.   

Decreases insulin response.   

Andhere's the most disturbing fact.... HERE ISTHE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!    

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC...and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).       

You can try this yourself:    

Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:   

*no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)

*it does not rot or smell differently because ithas no nutritional value   ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teenyweenie microorganisms will not a find a home to grow.  Why? Because it is nearly plastic.
 Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?     

Share Thiswith Your Friends(If you want to butter them up)!   

Chinese Proverb: When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.     

I'm not a "rude and unsociable" person, I'm just a human who likes to eat food! See, plastic doesn't make me feel good, nor does any other genetically engineered "structure that looks like the real deal". 

For instance...I was recently at an outing at which I participated in the eating process so that I would not be criticized for being "unsociable". I was careful in my selection, but alas, to no avail. I chose the things that should have been the safest to eat, but you know what happened? I ended up with blue lips, a pounding headache, and breathlessness for several hours. I know that whatever was supposed to be considered a "safe and organic" choice had been very carefully disguised. Therein lies the danger of "organic and natural". Don't be fooled by the often times is just a clever way of disguising "sweet poison". Believe me, that is the LAST time I will EVER be "sociable":-) lol! No offense to anyone, but it is simply NOT.WORTH.IT. 

Tip for the day: What happens to you 30 min. after you eat a meal or snack? Watch the clock and listen to your body. Restlessness, fatigue, irritability, drowsiness, headache, breathlessness, pounding heart, bloating, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, dry mouth...etc??? Anyone one of these responses to anything eaten and you've consumed MSG, Aspartame, HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) formaldehyde, arsenic, hydrogenated substance, etc... You may say, "but I read my label and none of these words are on it!!!" Read on. These toxins have been cleverly renamed. For instance, Aspartame is now being called "AminoSweet, Sweet n Low, Sugar-free, Splenda, and one of the newest "TRUVIA" (oh man, do your research on this one!!) I have a feeling that is what was in what I had recently. I use dry stevia leaf (the actual dried leaf) all the time and I NEVER have any reactions. **on a side note, stevia is NOT white. PERIOD. Stevia powder packets are nothing more than aspartame cleverly repackaged for health idiots.** (step off the soap box:-)   Aspartame being called an AMINO ACID???!!! Amino acids are very good for you so now our loving Government is trying to kill us by label confusion! There are many different names under which these poisons come under. Do your research so you can accurately read your labels...well, I think the better approach would be to stop reading labels and buy local.  Ahhh, there you have it! No worries. What you buy from the farmer is the actual product. No disguises, no additives, no clever engineering. Just plain ole' food:-) Whew, that was easy:-) 

Tip number 2: If the the USDA approves it as a sweetener or "safe additive" DON'T CONSUME IT! The USDA is managed by the same corporate leaders of MONSANTO. Do your research on Monsanto. Eye opening:-) 

Here's a link to the blog that my Dad writes on daily.

Since he has his degree in Agricultural Science (degrees seem to be so important these days;-) I think he is worth listening to...actually, even if he didn't have a degree he would be worth listening to because his experience far outweighs his degree...but that's just my opinion:-)

  1. On the link I put in the post, highlight it, right click, and select "open link in new tab". for some reason the link didn't work like it was supposed to:-) Guess I'd better check with my web-man on what I did wrong:-)

  2. I guess, I'm glad I like butter! yikes!

    If you get a chance, check out my blog. I write it daily for encouragement, motivation and a laugh, sometimes. Check out the top ten on the left to get the best feel for the postings.
