The ‘hippies’ are right! DEC12

Get over it AND get IN to it! Veg works… click like and tweet!

PS. Obesity rates amongst kids decline’s in the USA. Something is working! Keep going! Yes!

Why the FDA wont ban HFCS even though Fructose (without fibre) is killing us…

Watch the first 10 minutes, if you like it and want to get deeper watch it all.

For many people this is old news though it’s very very relevant!

In short: Fructose (when separated from fibre i.e in fruit) is one of if not the biggest contributor to the obesity epidemic. Avoid High Fructse Corn Syrup, Sucrose (which is glucose and fructose).

Enjoy!

Do Kellogg’s Really Care About You? (Part 2)

I found this awesome report in The Age, an Australian newspaper, about marketing by cereal companies and thought I’d revive a couple of videos I posted about high sugar breakfast cereals…
Kelloggs Sugar

I’m actually really happy to read tweets and see news reports coming in now about companies like Kelloggs, who have a great opportunity to improve their currently horrendous products and use their distribution channels to help people live a healthy life. How long until they actually put something really awesome and healthy out there?

Breakfast is such an important meal of the day for our emotional stability and physical energy levels. If you’re eating sugary, refined breakfast cereal then you’re setting yourself up for a day of ups and downs. Get stuck into a high protein breakfast with some greens like Eggs and Spinach and you will be off to a much better start.

In my opinion Kellogg’s have been misleading consumers, aggressively marketing their products as healthy when they actually are not. Check out links and tweets at the bottom of this page to bloggers and companies talking about this.

Kellogg’s Cereal Bar Video: Posted June 2nd 2011

Credit where credit is due. Kelloggs did do a bit of work last year (2010) to reduce the sugar content of some of their products – though what did they replace it with and is it natural?

There is much more work to be done to clean up Kelloggs product range…

Rich Eats: Whole Foods

I wrote and filmed this the following back in 2011 before Whole Foods were exposed for selling GMO foods.  Now they are lower on my list of favorite places to shop though they do still stock some awesome stuff.

While I was in California I visited as many of these stores as possible… So many amazing foods to enjoy! And an awesome place to meet people!
