Compromise in Life and Eats

Hi there!  These August days sure are finding me busy!  We’ve been doing lots of shopping (clothes, supplies, even Halloween costume requests are being made!), doing doctor’s appointments for the dog boy and the non-furry boy, and just trying to prepare ourselves for the upcoming back-to-school routine.   431 more words

Healthy Eating isn't just about Salad

When I first came to LA, I was shocked by they give you all kind of different option for your latte. The barista will ask you whether you want whole milk, 2% fat, almond milk, coconut milk or soy milk. 290 more words

Diaries of a misguided Vegan turned Flexitarian

‘Il n’y a que les cons qui ne changent pas d’avis.’ is a French saying meaning ‘Only idiots don’t change their mind.’

Being aware that people read my blog and trust that I make health conscious decisions based on my own experiences, I feel a responsibility to share my decision to become flexitarian with my readers. 1,094 more words

A collaboration between FTF and Dr Jen Robinson 

You may have watched the new Netflix film called ‘What the Health‘. It is described by it’s film producers as “the film (which) exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick.” Here are our thoughts on the some of the claims and statements made: 1,092 more words

Fad Diet

NiaFaraway reblogged this and commented:

I've recently seen a large number of friends post about this documentary, as reference to an ensuing decision to adopt a Vegan lifestyle. I think a vegan lifestyle, albeit restrictive, can be predominantly healthy due to its focus on increasing plant-based, wholesome and unprocessed foods. I appreciate the social, animal advocacy and environmental sentiments behind such movements and believe them to be of great importance. However it is also key to note that cutting out entire food groups could have a negative effect on some individuals. An improvement in health could also be seen under a Flexitarian / Part-Time Vegan plan. Before deciding, it should be noted that this documentary does demonstrate some conflicts of interests due to the biased background and agenda of its creators. Here is a great review from FightThefads.Com (snippet below): click here to read the original article

A summary of the main points the review makes:

--> Not all class 1 carcinogens are equally dangerous. Doseage is important. Apple pips contain the deadly poison cyanide but it doesn't mean that accidentally eating one or even a hundred apple pips is going to kill you. --> A high GI diet has been linked with increased risk of T2DM (sugar + refined carbs being the main culprits) --> Antibiotic resistance due to animal agriculture is a problem, but the UK has stricter regulations to help prevent this (although this may change post Brexit...) --> Current scientific evidence does not suggest eating dairy increases mortality after a breast cancer diagnosis --> Collaboration between health professionals and the food industry can be useful - transparency is key --> The film-makers do not have scientific backgrounds but do have confirmation bias. They are not a credible or impartial source of nutritional information. However our diets and the way in which we consume food in general, is undoubtedly food for thought.

Yes, I do know what cooked meat looks like.

The other day a friend of mine tagged me in a post on Facebook. The post read: “Comment your unpopular opinion, only respond with agree or disagree, no arguing” I’m sure many of you have seen this by now, it’s kinda trendy at the moment. 537 more words

What the Hell is a Flexitarian??

Me…apparently.
A flexitarian is someone who consumes a mostly planted-based diet but occasionally eats meat, poultry and/or seafood.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been pretty conscious of what I put in my mouth. 375 more words
