Following two recent posts on food production (The Future of Food and Food, Inc.), I’ve received several emails with additional viewing suggestions. There have also been comments posted within each of the original entries.
For those interested, the video is also available on Youtube. Part I can be found here.
And please note that I’m not posting these videos to scare anyone, but I do think it is important to know how and where our food is produced.
In terms of nutritional strategies and ideas, I am all for simplicity. As stated within a past entry:
|My nutritional strategy is very simple. I eat real food (ex. fruits, veggies, fish, meat, etc.) when I’m hungry, and I don’t eat any artificial and/or processed junk. That’s it. I have better things to do with my time than counting how much of this or that nutrient has been consumed in this or that meal. My ancestors did pretty well without calculating zones and nutrient ratios on the abacus, so I see no reason to change. I never get sick, recover quickly from training, and feel good throughout the day. If it isn’t broken, I see no reason to fix it. Find what works for you. That’s the best nutritional advice I ever heard, so now I’m giving it to you.|
In the words of Confucius,
“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
Amazingly, despite originating a few thousand years ago, the statement above is still as true as ever.9 comments
