Organic Foods (Going Organic: Why You Should and How You Can Switch to Organic Foods Book 2)

Organic Foods (Going Organic: Why You Should and How You Can Switch to Organic Foods Book 2)

If you’re not yet convinced of the dangers of food additives, having read about studies and the history of food additives in our first volume, you will likely be convinced of the dangers as you start to see people more and more taking action to protect themselves from the harmful effects them. The following story of the Virginia PTA is such an example.In the state of Virginia the parent-teacher association adopted a resolution in 2004 describing the dangers they had discovered were apparently caused by artificial food additives. In the beginning of the resolution it states the purpose of the Virginia PTA itself is to promote good health for all children and youth. It also states that the number of students in Virginia’s schools identified as having learning disabilities increased almost by 10% in just the one school year, from 1997 to 1998, which was a greater rate of increase than the increase in the actual student population. Something was terribly wrong. Of great concern to the PTA was the fact that this also represented an enormous growth in educational expenses to the state. The PTA also found that the number of students with • asthma, • allergies, and • other chronic respiratory conditions increased by 4.3% per year. This increase represented an increase of over three billion dollars every single year in healthcare costs! The PTA also determined that this represented 14 million lost days of school!Further evidence linked autistic disorders, upper respiratory conditions, hyperactivity, and ADD/ADHD to the consumption of food additives such as artificial dyes, flavor enhancers, and preservatives.The resolution thus adopted recommends that local PTA’s, and every other person concerned with the well-being and education of Virginia students, study the subject of artificial food additives and the negative effects on the health of children and their ability to learn. They also recommend all state and local governments as well as educational groups work to discourage and prevent the sale and consumption of food and beverages that contain artificial food additives not only during school hours but before and after school as well.The resolution goes even further and encourages parents, students, teachers, and government and school officials to support education on the subjects of nutrition and health so that the negative effects of artificial food additives on a child’s behavior, education, and physical health can be avoided or minimized.The PTA further urges the Virginia Board of Education to continue to look into available and new research on the subject, and research on the effects of artificial food additives just as fast as it comes available, in order to protect Virginia’s public school students from the negative effects. This is also to protect the state of Virginia from the potentially devastating financial impact of epidemic-like problems apparently caused by food additives in the diets of students. The Virginia PTA closes the resolution by encouraging and other PTAs around the country to adopt similar resolutions.Amazing, isn’t it? Read More »

Running On A Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic Performance (Healthy Ways to Lose Weight Book 4)

Running On A Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic Performance (Healthy Ways to Lose Weight Book 4)

Why a Plant Based Diet is Best for Runners (and Everyone Else for That Matter!) In 1977 Jim Fixx published his book entitled The Complete Book of Running, which sold over a million copies and was instrumental in the launch of the American running boom of the late 1970’s. Fixx himself became a fitness icon, and his name became synonymous with the ideal picture of health. It is for this reason that his death at the age of 52 shocked the running world. On July 20th, 1984, Jim Fixx was found on the side of the road dead after suffering a massive heart attack during his morning run on a rural road in Vermont. Fixx had a family predisposition to heart disease – his father died at the age of 43 from a heart attack. During his autopsy it was determined that Fixx had major blockages in three of his arteries, the worst of which was 95% clogged. Despite knowing that he had a hereditary risk, Fixx felt that his compulsive running regime would keep him immune to health issues. Fixx never addressed the issue of diet, and despite having high cholesterol and a bad family history was a devoted meat eater until his premature death. We are just starting to understand the causal link between eating a meat based diet and illnesses such as cancer and heart disease. Exercise alone is not a wellness guarantee, but running and eating a plant based diet will arguably get you to the highest point of personal health you might ever hope to achieve. Running on a Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic PerformanceThis book is divided into two sections. The first section will outline the argument for why a plant based diet is preferable to a meat based diet for general health. The second section will explore areas of interest for the plant based runner, including: Debunking the Plant Diet Myths Plant Based Sources of Carbohydrates, Proteins & Fats Plant Based Smoothies Suggestions Plant Based Meal Suggestions for Training and RecoveryAnd More! Switch to a Plant Based Diet Today for Better Running and Better Health! Read More »

My Organic Life: How a Pioneering Chef Helped Shape the Way We Eat Today

My Organic Life: How a Pioneering Chef Helped Shape the Way We Eat Today

A wonderfully engaging memoir from the woman who founded America’s first certified organic restaurant, My Organic Life is the story of an unheralded culinary pioneer who made it her mission to bring delicious, wholesome foods to the American table. While growing up on a farm in the Austrian Alps and later in Vienna, Nora Pouillon was surrounded by fresh and delicious foods. So when she and her French husband moved to Washington, D.C., in the 1960s, she was horrified to discover a culinary culture dominated by hormone-bloated meat and unseasonal vegetables. The distance between good, healthy produce and what even the top restaurants were serving was vast, and Nora was determined to bridge that gap. First as a cooking teacher, then as a restaurant owner, and eventually as the country’s premier organic restaurateur, she charted a path that forever changed our relationship with what we eat. Since it opened in 1979, her eponymous restaurant has been a hot spot for reporters, celebrities, and politicians—from Jimmy Carter to the Obamas—alike. Along the way, Nora redefined what food could be, forging close relationships with local producers and launching initiatives to take the organic movement mainstream. As much the story of America’s postwar culinary history as it is a memoir, My Organic Life encompasses the birth of the farm-to-table movement, the proliferation of greenmarkets across the country, and the evolution of the chef into social advocate. Spanning the last forty years of our relationship with food, My Organic Life is the deeply personal, powerfully felt story of the organic revolution—by the unlikely heroine at its forefront.

If you like salads, I'll show you how to make delicious bowlfuls with tasty mild or spicy sprouts. If you enjoy eating cereal for breakfast, try some sprouted grains with natural malt sugars that nourish your body and taste far better than boxed cereals.Need to lose a few pounds?Simply eating a few more sprouted beans will keep you feeling fuller and eating fewer carbs. Toss some bean sprouts, lentil sprouts, or pea sprouts into your next rice or pasta dish; they make great burgers as well. You'll find that your body absorbs the protein better when the beans are sprouted, which usually reduces flatulence as well.

Our prehistoric ancestors ate most of their food raw until around 12,000 years ago. The human body has not yet adapted to the large quantities of cooked and processed foods we feed ourselves. This is a big reason for the high rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and other chronic ailments: we are poisoning ourselves with so much over-cooked, over-processed foods. People who switch to raw food diets (or simply include some more raw food in their diets) experience many benefits, such as weight loss and great energy levels. This book will help you increase the quantity of raw food in your diet from sprouts, including salad and sandwich sprouts, wheatgrass, microgreens, and sprouted beans, nuts, seeds, and grains (which most people can digest well without any cooking).Learn how to grow some of your fresh food indoors, in a small space, with no direct light, and no soil (except microgreens).

Drawing on findings from leading health researchers as well as conversations with both chemical and organic farmers from coast to coast, Maria Rodale's Organic Manifesto irrefutably outlines the unacceptably high cost of chemical farming on our health and our environment.
