They need help

We are the ones that can make the change. These companies only care about money and nothing else. They need to be sent a message letting them know that they need to change the way of making and producing their food products. People think that it is out of their hands to make companies changes, but all it takes is people's voice to help them make a decision. These companies have made the choice for you on how and what you eat. Let's make these choices better and more healthy for our bodies. You deserve the best, so why not give your body real food instead of chemical man-made garbage. The choice is yours to make. You can help these companies, or you can buy from your neighbors and communities. Think about it. Read the ingredients.

Help the Bees

Bees are one of the most important flying insects that we have. If it were them then we could not have all of the fresh food that we have. They are the biggest pollinators in the land. I know if you are allergic to them, then they suck. These plants pictured below show how you can help support the bee population, since the numbers are decreasing. Monsanto has developed a pesticide that kills bees, so they can control all of the crops, and food produced. Why would you give your money to a company that wants to control that food that you eat? Stop buying their products.

Gettin' smaller

I still hear about people going on a diet. Why in the world would you do that to yourself? Why can people just not learn to change small parts of their daily diet at a time, and they will start to see changes in their body. When you go from eating your normal diet to suddenly changing everything that you eat, you will cheat some. It may be just small amounts but those small amounts will start to grow. You are back to your original size plus some. Like the foods that are pictured below will not completely change how you look, but they will start you in the right path to changing your diet the right way. You will start to make permanent food changes. This is a start though.

Stop with the bottled water

I know that I have talked about this before. People you need to stop with the cases of bottled water. I still see so many shoppers in stores with one or two cases of water in their shopping cart. These empty water bottles end up in landfills. If you are going to buy them at least recycle them. Don't help start another landfill in someone else's town. All you need to do is purchase a filtered water container to keep in your fridge for clean cold water. Get yourself a refillable water bottle or some type of drinking container, and you will not have to rely on those little bottles of water.
For the people that live in the country or outside of the city limits, a landfill could be placed near your home. All it takes is someone with a lot of money, and it will be done. I know of it happening to an area, and there was nothing that could be done about it. If the wind is blowing the you can smell the dump. It is really nasty. Pass the information on to your friends and family to stop with the bottles and start recycling.

Polyface Farms

Check this website, if you have not already. If you are in this man's area or visiting there, then you need to stop by and see his place. He is a natural farmer. We need to have more families like this in the country. I'm glad the natural trend is increasing every day.

Soda Pop!

I love soda. I'm not going to lie about it. The best thing is a fountain drink. They are just so terrible for you, and the damage they do on the body. There are natural better for you sodas on the market, but in many areas they are hard to find. Just stay away from the diet and zero drinks. I don't know if you even want to know yet about what those do, but you know I will be telling you soon enough.

THE GOOD STUFF
 Sodas that are sweetened with stevia, a naturally derived sweetener, or cane sugar are healthier alternatives to their corn-syrup sisters.


THE BAD STUFF

 When it comes to carbonated beverages, carbonation isn't the enemy; it’s the rest of what goes into soda that can be harmful to the body. Artificial colorings have been linked to hyperactivity in children.

White or Wheat?

As I have said on here before, I love some white bread, but it is bad for your health and weight. People, we really do need to watch what kind of bread we eat. There are so many people and experts out there that say never to eat bread, but sandwiches are delicious. I love them. Here are some things that you need to look out for when buying bread at the store. You know the best option is to make your own bread.

THE GOOD STUFF
 Though the authors of Rich Food, Poor Food believe bread should be avoided, we understand bread is often unavoidable. Steer clear of the worst stuff by looking for breads made with whole grains. The first ingredient should be either “100% whole wheat” or “100% whole grain” to make sure you’re getting the healthiest option.





THE BAD STUFF

If the first ingredient is “wheat flour” or “enriched bleached flour,” then white flour was mostly used
rather than whole-wheat flour.
