Runner's World Mile a day Challenge

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Today is day 30 and I have run at least 1 mile every day. I think running every day is taking its toll on me or it could be because of the gardening and yard work that I am doing. But I sure do enjoy getting that mile run done before I start my chores.

Stormy Weather

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Due to recent storm activity, I was out of internet service for a couple of days. Fortunately, the power was still active here. But three days without the internet!? It is now back at a super slow speed.

My family in another town was without electricity for three days. My mom and day were thankful for that city water connection. She commented on she did not living like the "good ol, days".

Beef with beef, response from cub

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Here is part of the response:
"Animal welfare is an important issue to Cub Foods, our associates and our customers. While we do not directly engage in raising or processing animals for our stores, we are a purchaser of these products and believe it is our obligation to ensure that each of our suppliers meets or exceeds government regulations pertaining to the humane treatment of animals.

At Cub Foods, the safety of our customers is a top priority. Cub Foods complies with all local, state and federal regulations regarding food safety and requires our supplier partners to do the same, including regulations on the use of antibiotics in farm animals. In addition, we have a comprehensive food safety and quality assurance structure in place throughout the company to ensure that were protecting the health and safety of our customers.

We continuously work closely with the appropriate regulatory and government agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), to ensure the food in our stores is safe."

They also gave me some additional contact information. Overall, it was a pleasant experience dealing with this company. They were quick to respond, even if it was a blanket response and did not really address the question asked. They said they would pass on my concern.

  


My Beef with Beef

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I am currently reading "My Beef with Beef" by Rip Esselstyn, who is the author of the Engine 2 Diet, which is a plant based diet. Then I get an ad from Cub Foods that announces I would not have a beef with their beef. The reason they give is because they have a butcher on site.

Really? A butcher who packages the meat for you makes it better? So, I sent them an email telling them the absence of a butcher at the store is NOT the reason I have a beef with beef and I would like to know how their suppliers treat the cattle and what they feed them.

HA! I wonder if I will get an informed answer from them or not. I am already on my second email with the Customer Service.

    I'll have to look into that book. I eat mostly a plant based diet. I don't eat beef and most pork. I still eat poultry which I've switched over to organic until I'm ready to fully give up meat. It's not who cuts the meat at the store. It's the whole process before it gets to the store that bothers me.

    How do you like your book so far? I am looking for some books encourages me to happily convert to plant based diet style of living. Thinking about getting this Meat with beef book or Knife over Fork. Not sure which is better.

    That is fantastic! I think when kids start running young it just becomes an exercise habit they never have to think about!
