Health and Wellness Advice

"DIET FOR A DEAD PLANET, Big Business and the Coming Food Crisis" - by Christopher Cook

You've probably seen the bumper stickers, "No Farms, No Food?" How can that be? Well, we are not too far from that in terms of real farms, where the farmers who do the business of farming, actually live on the farm, are integrated into the local community, are intimately connected to the soil, produce high quality fresh food, and get decent prices for what they sell. My previous article on Farmacology highlights how "health comes from the farm, not the pharmacy," providing nourishing sustenance when the farm is a real one. Big agribusiness and the petrochemical industry, with collusion with governments, have turned food away from nutrition and into a commodity and sometimes a weapon. If we want healthful nutrition, we must preserve real farming.

The lowly beans deserve more credit than they receive. Beans are members of the legume family and contain a great health-supportive mix of fiber and protein. Legumes include beans, lentils and peas and this class of foods is among the most versatile, nutritious and delicious, too! Legumes are a good source of low fat, low-cholesterol protein and contain beneficial soluble and insoluble fiber your body needs. Beans can help stretch our food dollars, while delivering a healthy, delectable meal.

Food For The Soul

I was talking to a 19-year-old recently and he has been struggling with motivation.

His problem goes like this: he gets excited about starting a project or plan, and is very motivated at the start. After a few days, that feeling dies down, and he starts procrastinating.

He really does want to do the project or follow through on the plan, but the motivation inevitably drops away.
