Tying in the clean eating, eco-friendly link to this week's Q&A Wednesday! Q: How can you live a clean eating lifestyle, when those around you aren't doing the same? As I've written before, I encountered this, too. Running into the issue of either having people eat all your food before you get to [...]
To those who subscribe to BGG2WL via e-mail, the last post, "Comprehending Calories: The Role of Carbs In Your Diet," was cut off by the distributor - click here for the post in its entirety! We eat the foods, but how often do we take a look at the stuff on the side? Yes, all [...]
As I've said before, there are only a few things that really unnerve me - one of them is dishonesty in marketing. (Surprise, surprise... that's what marketing is.) If you browse an aisle at the supermarket, you will see claims made on package after package after package... but is it really worth it? For that [...]
A while back, I was asked the following on twitter: "Why is eating healthy so time consuming and expensive?" To which I replied, "You'd like me to answer that in 140 characters or less? LOL" If anything, I was trying to spare ol' girl from a rant consisting of 324,356,316 tweets back to back trying [...]
"You need to cut your salt intake." But why? And does this mean I should consume no salt?
Today... is Earth Day. A day where we all try to do a little something to help preserve the planet where we live. It's an opportunity to bring awareness to the fact that we give to the Earth as well as take from it... so put forth an effort to give as harmlessly as possible [...]
"The easier it is to acquire something, the more likely I am to eat it..."
So, I know I'm late in writing about Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (JOFR), but I really needed to sort out my thoughts on it, first. As I've mentioned, I'm not much of a pop culturist. If I didn't have twitter already, I might never know what a twitter is. I know that's shameful, 'cause I'm [...]
So, apparently, high fructose corn syrup wants to go into witness protection, since everyone's hunting for it.
Part one of "The Problem With Processed Foods."
Why? Because there's mercury in it. I'm a believer in a simplified life. It's like, I appreciate the fact that processed foods allow us the ability to eat more complex dishes at less of a cost to our time... but you can't get "something" for "nothing." It *has* to cost us in other ways, right? [...]
Comparing "regular" and "fat free" food stuffs - which is cleaner eating?
Is there a difference between high fructose corn syrup and table sugar? Well...
I hate watching stories about health and obesity on the news. Why? Because to signify the "dreaded plague of obesity" in America, there's always these video clips of people - never showing their faces, so we're supposed to presume they have no identity... or, well, no head - and their bellies. You might [...]
No nutritional value, harmful and fattening chemical additives, unidentifiable sources...
The interesting thing, really, was the number of people who admitted to drinking diet soda. Well...
When I first began phasing processed foods out of my life, the most difficult part was the fact that I always felt hungry. Sure, I was eating three square meals a day, but I was always starving. I mean, we're talking "OMG I HAVEN'T EATEN IN 3 MONTHS (or hours, whatever) I'M GONNA DIEEEEE" starving, [...]
That's right. Beginning April 25th and ending May 2nd, we will begin the 7 Day Clean Eating Challenge. But before I dive into the details, let's talk a little bit about what clean eating is and how it benefits us. What is Clean Eating? Clean eating is eating as close to the source as possible. [...]
