I haven't read all of the posts yet but really wanted to let others know about Azure Standard. They are an Oregon based company but ship organic food, produce and supplies all over. They are SO affordable! I buy the bulk of my groceries from them and it comes on a truck one time per month to wherever your "drop" is. When I moved to Arkansas from Oregon I was lost in a whole foods desert with nothing but spam, velveeta and white bread. They have literally saved my (and my kids) life!

I just watched a really good documentary on Netflix instant called Hungry For Change about how the food industry and health food industry keep people fat and some great information about the benefits of real food. Check it out.

If you only knew all the love that I found...

Has anyone in the New York area heard of Suburban Organics? I was wondering about people's opinion of this service.

And raising meat chickens for our own consumption alerts our home owner's insurance who threatens to drop us. Really? Not all that long ago, when my mother was a child, everyone had chickens in their backyard. All is well now...25 of them are in the freezer.

This is a great food pyramid and if you don't suffer from an illness that is affected by inflammation, you certainly know someone who is.

My public water is so alkaline that it bothers my outdoor plants, and it bothers my skin and health. I plan to get some of the black mica extract next month and find out if it takes care of that; water filters don't and I don't like adding house heat and humidity with distillers.

I'm fairly certain this link has been posted elsewhere but figured it would be worth reposting for new members:

www.westonaprice.org/ (massive amount of great info)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know many people here are vegetarians, I am not, but within my research I have come across some good stuff. Unfortunately vegetarian diets are low in certain nutrients but I have been reading that simply adding gelatin can basically solve all those issues. Obviously gelatin comes from animals but I found that kosher gelatin is actually doable:

www.vrg.org/nutshell/faqingredients.
ht
m#kosher
(vegetarian resource page)

augmentinforce.50webs.com/Gelatin.ht
m
(what it actually is though technical)

I get mine from Great Lakes Gelatin. They do have kosher. I did not post a link because it goes directly to the product page and I am not sure about SP rules on posting links directly to products.

And for whatever it is worth...

I have been seeking (and finding) ways to get all my nutrition from food and NOT supplementation. I did an experiment for myself. Glucosamine basically saved my knees but I am, again, tired of taking supplements so stopped them and added gelatin in my diet as well as bone broth (for the non-vegetarian types). I have had ZERO pain in my knees and joints since doing this!

Anyway, I don't believe in cookie cutter diets which is why I am always keeping my eyes open for things that work for everyone, not just me. Vegetarians believe as strongly in their nutritional values as I do in my grass fed, organic views. So when I saw this info, I just really wanted to pass it on. Although muscle meats are still a part of my diet I am finding I am leaning more and more toward gelatin and dairy sources to meat my protein needs.

Check out our local, sustainable food site. I live in Northern Ontario, Canada in a city of only 50,000 people, but we are working toward a sustainable life and food system.
It is an interesting site that was created on a volunteer basis......you could do one too and be a vessle for real change! (make sure to check out the magazine page and look over the past few months.....food for thought!) www.tasteoftimmins.com

I found a really cool site last night called Harvest Eating.
They have videos, podcasts, recipes, and other miscellaneous stuff that is very useful!

Cool thread!! I will definitely be interested to check out all the links.

Well, everyone here probably knows this one, but just in case you don't, it begs to be repeated:

www.localharvest.org

Enter your zip code to find a CSA or farmer's market in your area, as well as other "crunchy" finds one can order!

Coach Nicole shared this article on FB today, which I thought was interesting. There's a group of Doctors suing the USDA and the USDHHS for maintaining the traditional food pyramid in the face of growing scientific evidence that a plant-based diet is 'more healthy'.

"Could a vegetarian food guide pyramid be in our future?"

Share here: informative articles, links, research, organisations, websites - that will help us stay in tune with being crunchy!

We often share things we found, in our forums, but they do tend to get lost amongst our general discussions. So, even if you've posted elsewhere, pls include a quick note here - then we might easily be able to find something again!

Feel free to include articles from our very own sparkpeople website, too!
