Farm raised fish

By Clean Eating Online /

By the end of 2009, the world wiill reach a historic milestone: Half of the fish and shellfish we consume will be raised by humans instead of being caught in the wild.

So how exactly does this affect those of us who enjoy eating fish?

We’ll be exposed to a whole different kind of fish than the ones that swim wild. Farm raised fish have eaten unused poultry trimmings, been vaccinated, consumed antibiotics, and have been selected for certain genetic traits.

The dangers of Vitamin D Deficiency

There has been a lot of talk recently regarding the lack of vitamin D in our diets. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to get the vitamin D you need without putting in much effort.

First, lets talk about vitamin D and why it’s so important. Vitamin D’s major function is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, which helps to keep bones strong. Recent research has also stated that Vitamin D may provide protection against osteoporosis, high blood pressure, cancer, as well as autoimmune diseases such as MS. Good stuff this Vitamin D, huh?

The problem is that Vitamin D deficiency is becoming epidemic in this country. Why? Lack of sunlight. Most of us, myself included, are “sun-phobic”. We have all become so paranoid about skin cancer so we slather ourselves in spf 5000 or whatever sunscreen the second we step foot outdoors on an even remotely sunny day.

The Farmers Market

By Clean Eating Online /

Ahhhhhh…….finally! My local farmers market opened yesterday. I was able to get some fantastic local red leaf lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, as well as local May peas. I even picked up some locally made sourdough bread (yummy).

 

Farmer’s markets are such fantastic places. Not only do you support local farmers but you get to interact with the people who grow the food. It was encouraging to me that the market was bustling with people at 9:00 am on a Saturday morning.

This is hilarious!

By Clean Eating Online /

It’s amazing to me how clever the marketing in the processed food world can be. Since its now “trendy” to eat locally grown food, Frito Lay has jumped on the bandwagon. This article mentions that Frito Lay chips are now claiming to be a “local” food. I guess we’re supposed to believe that this means […]
