Curse you, sugar! *shakes fist* XD



Also, GRAINS mostly digest down to sugar (even with its fiber content intact), so that's some additional "hidden sources" hiding in plain sight.  If you eat a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, you have sugar in the jelly, nowadays some sugar in the peanut butter, and, on top of that, the starch in the peanuts (legumes) and white bread (refined wheat flour) will also break down to most parts glucose and some parts fructose.  Ergo, it's essentially a sugar, sugar & sugar sandwich, pfff. XD

Oh wow, this is rather cool. ^.^



Because phytates in grain actively bind to minerals, especially iron, it's common practice now to fortify cereals with elemental iron to help offset the loss of naturally bioavailable iron in your food.  Otherwise, rates of anemia and other mineral deficiency syndromes would become more obvious. ^^;

Ugh... this is never pleasant to watch... Sad



Given the work of Dr. Perlmutter on how sugar/grains can cause or at least worsen some brain disorders, I have to wonder how much of this is actually diet-induced.  It doesn't help that your common anorexic will rely on "health" foods (typically wheat or "fat-free" foods) as sustenance, which would just aggravate the issue further.  ><

In any case, here's a nice little [LONG] anecdote on that topic... ^^

Ooh, something I don't completely understand. owo

No wonder why there's a phrase "you're beautiful just the way you are"...
I feel like one's low self-esteem actually bring more damage than I expected, I mean, I know it leads to many disorders and psychological illnesses, but I didn't thought it also leads to such thing as binge-eating and else.
(I'm not that self-conscious with my appearance, so it's kinda harder for me to even consider the connection between them)

This is very educative, I really liked it. ^w^

YAY DANDELIONS!!! Happy Cia
The dandelions are sprouting out like crazy... and while for most people in my neighborhood it's a crisis, for me it's a bonanza of free food!  Granted I only eat the ones in my inner garden (and avoid the ones that could be affected by stray pesticides, car exhaust and dog poop), but even a little bit of leaf and flower pulling left me with a TON of ingredients!! XD

I used the leaves to make an amazing dandelion pesto [filling the entire jar up, so I'll enjoy it for days!], and the flowers I pulled went into a nice dandelion flower and lime tea. ^.^

For anyone who still chooses to eat wheat... here's a great ancient alternative that's less problematic and more nourishing (and personally, more delicious)!  ^.^

Thanks to Luigi, I learned a lot about tree chewing gum, the ancient ancestor of the modern artificial chewing gum mostly sold today (which is essentially plastic).  The use of gums and saps from trees to turn into a post-meal "chewing gum" has been practiced by various cultures around the world for thousands of years... the ancient Maya used Chicle, the American indians used Spruce, the Finns and Russians would use Cedar and Larch, the Greeks would use Mastic, the Egyptians, Africans and Arabs would use Acacia, etc.  There are various purported health benefits to the use of these natural tree chewing gums, although in almost all instances of traditional use, they mainly were eaten after meals and never on an empty stomach.

Here's a couple of nice videos on the topic...

Yay vitamins! ^^



Note 1: "Lipid", for those who dont know, is just the scientific name for "fat" (as in the macronutrient, not the adipose tissue "fat").  XD

Note 2: The video is great, but severely glosses over the benefits of Vitamin D.  VitD does a LOT in the body, and the building of bones is just one of its many jobs (granted, it's still important). Smile

Note 3:  Kudos to stating that vitamin supplements are not always necessary and can even be harmful in excess.  With the exception of Vitamin D which is not commonly found in food and not readily available if you don't get much sun (or live in a northern climate), all other vitamins can be obtained from a proper diet of nutrient-rich, antinutrient-poor foods. Smile

OMG!  In the process of reading Joel Salatin's latest book (the Marvelous Pigness of Pigs) and I absolutely ADORE IT so far!  This man is my hero!!!



And sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy the quiet wonders of the unappreciated but glorious... Happy Cia

Nice documentary on bug-eating, though the commentator is a total squeamish wuss. XD

Another video on bug-eating, this one touching on the residual bugs we all eat regularly in our processed foods.  It's always such a fascinating subject, and they have a fun follow-up video.  ^^

Yay, I ate some lambsquarters the other day (they tried to outgrow my dandelions, the little attention seekers!) -- they were great, very spinachy, and I did actually sautee it with onions, garlic, walnuts and bacon grease!   I'm keeping lots of them growing around the garden so I can have more later. ^.^

FINALLY!! A video that addresses metabolic compensation and why exercise, while great for general wellness, is not exactly a weight-loss tool.  



Granted, they propose not overeating as the solution, which is still not quite accurate, but hey... one myth at a time, and the exercise myth is plenty important to realize. >v<
