The Benefits of Grass Fed Products

When you choose to eat grass-fed animal products, you are making a lifestyle choice that is better for your mind and body, and for the animal population. Grass-feeding and pasture-raising allow us to feel closer to the foods we eat and their natural environment.

We generally choose to consume pasture-raised animal products, such as beef and dairy, for two main reasons. The first is ethical, as grass feeding increases the quality of life of the animals. The second is health-related, as consuming healthier animals is better for our bodies.

Grass feeding refers to allowing cattle and herd animals to eat from natural grasses in pastures, as opposed to eating processed feed and grains in feedlotsIt should be especially noted that grass-fed products can provide nutritional benefits for the people who consume them. For example, some grass-fed animal products contain fatty acids and antioxidants which are particularly beneficial for heart health.

Grain fed cows just don’t look as happy as their grass-fed counterparts.

Grass feeding is not a new trend. It marks a reversion to the original management of animal diets. All cattle were pasture-raised before the increasing demand of the meat and dairy industries incentivized industrialized production and the use of feedlots.

However, for all the benefits of grass feeding, there are a few issues worth mentioning in regards to the production of grass-fed products.

– The first is that reputable 100 percent grass-fed meat and dairy products can be very hard to source through national chains. People will most likely need to purchase them from local farms, butchers, or markets that carry local agricultural products.

– The second is that grass-fed animals prove to be no better for the environment than the rest of the meat industry, raising questions about sustainability.

Deception: Corn Syrup is Being Re-Named and Re-Marketed

Just when people are beginning to catch on to the fact that Corn Syrup and High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) are indeed dangerous for your health, low and behold, the name is being changed to “Fructose”.

This is the same thing that was done several years ago with Rape Seed oil (which is toxic). It is now sold under “Canola” oil. The new name and pretty package once again boosted sales and confidence in a product that did not warrant it.

Corn syrup became popular among food manufacturers, as it was less expensive to manufacture and use than pure sugar. Since this switch diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity have skyrocketed. Corn syrup is added to all kinds of things from cereals, to breads – even hidden in chicken salad where there is no logical reason for a sweetener at all. America on average has become fatter and less healthy as a result.

Renaming HFCS to simply fructose is deceptive as actual fructose comes from fruit. This is very likely what most consumers will assume the ingredient is and because of that assumption, they will believe it to be not only safe, but also healthy.

How can manufacturers get away with the duplication of an ingredient name?
Their reasoning is this:

We are simply eliminating the high fructose corn syrup designation for the laboratory sweetener that’s nine-tenths fructose and calling it what it really is: fructose. And that’s how a processed-food product like Vanilla Chex that contains “fructose”, a substance that, according to the corn refiners, used to be called HFCS-90, can now declare itself to be high fructose corn syrup-free.”

The ingredients haven’t changed. These products are not any better for you. They have just changed (and purposefully misrepresented) the verbiage in order to continue to drive sales. Reading labels has never been so important to your health as it is now. Take the extra time when you are shopping and take note of the ingredients listed.

GMO Labeling – Shopping is Voting!

Every time you shop, you are placing a vote for what kind of world you want to live in.

Companies like Monsanto (who produced seeds as well as pesticides and herbicides) are spending millions of dollars to block and prevent food from being labeled as GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). They do not believe you have the right to know what you are eating and choose accordingly. Why? Because if you knew and understood what you are consuming, you would not be doing it.

GMO’s have been pushed forward through science by big corporations because they grow faster and are bug resistant – making them bigger profits. The problem is that GMO vegetables, grains and fruits can actually mutate human genes leading to all kinds of health issues including autoimmune diseases (the body turning on itself) and cancer.

Monsanto and other corporations who profit from the sale of GMO foods vehemently deny all of this claiming that they are saving the world.

The kicker is that we, the consumer, are also part of the problem. By continuing to buy GMO and conventional produce as well as products, which are processed and made with them we, are supporting their business and in turn hurting our health and ourselves.

More and more law suits are being brought against Monsanto and bills are attempting to pass to enable us to have food accurately labeled so that we, the consumer, can decide for ourselves what we choose to put in our bodies and that of our families. But in order to win this battle, we are going to have to step up and each take some personal responsibility for what we eat and what we buy because WE ARE the ones who are funding them and their battle against all of us. The power is ours, but until we realize it and step into that power, things will continue to go as they are. More and more people will become ill over time because of the ingestion of these Franken Foods.

What steps can you take to help?

-Shop local organic as much as you can.

-Take a look at this list of companies who donated to the cause (on both sides of the fence) and give your food dollars to those who are fighting for – not against your health and your rights.

-When you shop for produce – look at the stickers. If the # starts with a 9 it’s organic. 4 is conventionally grown and 8 is GMO. Try your best to buy only 9’s.

gmo_prop37-900

People of course will argue that Organic Foods are more expensive. I can’t tell you that isn’t true. What I can tell you is that America needs a perspective adjustment. What you are saying when you grab a GMO apple vs. an Organic one for a small price difference is essentially “I’m not worth it.” – Yet that same person has no problem shelling out hundreds of dollars when they get sick to go see a doctor or pay for medications.

Buy choosing organic non-GMO you are choosing prevention. You are choosing to respect your body and you are ultimately choosing health and lower medical bills in the long run.

Pure Integrity Verified Seal of Approval

When it comes to what to eat these days it is nearly impossible to navigate the labyrinth of information and misinformation out there.
Labeling is sketchy at best with items not marked as GMO or not and multi billion dollar companies fighting against our right to know at all,  multi syllabic ingredient names you need a PhD to pronounce let alone understand, pesticides being sprayed on our crops and absorbed into our produce… Even when items are marked as organic, non-gmo, healthy, or natural….

Even when there are labels – just because something is marked NON GMO PROJECT while it is GMO Free it does NOT mean it is TOXIC FREE.  NON GMO crops can be and routinely are sprayed with Round UP, pesticides and herbicides. It is the TOXIC POISONS that are slowly killing us.

Do we really know what we are eating?

A step forward in this movement is being taken. The Pure Integrity Verified Seal of Approval is gaining momentum partly in thanks to the Fuel For The Body Tour by Lynnette Marie – The Organic Guru.

This is the YES TOUR:

YES to Clean Food, Clean Water, & Clean Air! We are bringing awareness across the nation & empowering EVERYONE to live an organic, toxic free & vibrant lifestyle! This is made up of a National Bike Tour Wyoming to Michigan (1630 miles) AND International ‘mini’ Tours (approx 30 miles).

THIS IS THE LABEL of the world for TRUST removing  GUESS WORK for the shopper.

 

The Meaning of the Pure Integrity Verified Seal

The Pure Integrity Verified Seal of approval means pure, integrity, quality and above and beyond organic ingredients without toxins or ingredients that become toxic when mixed with certain components. The Pure Integrity Verified Seal means the product was made with love, purity, and integrity. The seal means never compromising with industry standards. Using the most sustainable packaging as possible with out the BPA.

These products are sure to be FREE from GMO’s and MSG’s. If the product is a supplement in vitamin form, then the supplement will be RAW organic whole foods without added fillers or soy lecithin. Our strict standards are keeping everyone’s best health in mind. If we do find out that a company has sold out or started using toxic ingredients, the seal of recommendation is sure to be removed immediately! Just because a product is GMO free does NOT mean it is toxic/chemical free or even organic. Just because it is paraben free does not mean it is non-toxic. So recognizing this seal is assurance of purity and integrity.

Interested in having your products and company verified?

HERE IS HOW

QUALIFYING FOR THE SEAL

In order for a company to be recognized as ‘Pure Integrity Verified’, they must pass all criteria of Pure Integrity Verified Seal of Approval standards. As stated in the Seal Meaning and then passing the guidelines below.

  •  We will send one of our team members to meet each of the owners of the companies for interview to analyze the true intentions of the company.
  •  A Certificate of Analysis will be needed to compare ingredients on the product packaging.
  • The packaging of products should be as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible.
  • All ingredients of the products must be 100% organic or wild crafted. If products are clothing jewelry or accessories then products must be renewable, organic or sustainable. (we do not go by the industry standard of the USDA measures nor do we care if that logo is obtained). No fillers, No ‘Natural Flavorings’. No MSG, No GMO, No titanium dioxide and no sodium benzoate mixed with citric acid.
  •  If you outsource for ingredients/products, you must practice fair trade policies.
  •  If your company is clothing or accessories, then products must be sourced, fair trade and made with pure intentions and integrity.
  •  If you are a meat farmer/provider, then animals must be fed a natural and organic diet, no hormones, anti-biotics or inhumane treatment. Animals should be free roaming. They should be grass fed and grass finished if they are grass eaters. Not only should they be humanely raised, but harvesting of the animal in a humane way is a must.
  •  In the event your company has a change of ownership or a change of labeling, then certificate of analysis will need to be re-evaluated as well as the integrity of the new ownership.

When these simple criteria have been met, then you have earned the “Pure Integrity Verified Seal of Approval”. This is an EARNED seal NOT ever to be compromised.

Calories are not the enemy

Calories are not the enemy. This may be a statement that makes many people uncomfortable. We have been inundated by the media from every angle for the past couple of decades to believe otherwise.

Processed food packages are marked “diet” “low calorie” “low fat” and marked with names like “weight watchers” “lean cuisine” enticing consumers with the false implied promise of becoming thin “if” you eat their products.

The truth is we need calories. They are one of the very reasons we eat in the first place.

What is a calorie?

A Calorie is a unit of energy. Your body runs on them. No calories = no energy = tired you!

It has been spouted by many weight loss gurus that “a calorie is a calorie” and that the math is all that counts… More calories burnt than taken in equals weight loss.

 Again, this is not the full story.

A calorie is not a calorie. They are not all created equal. The old saying “Garbage in / Garbage out” also applies.

 Why are people so fat?

The diet industry would have us believe it is because you have no will power. Because you have no will power you need things outside of yourself to help you – diet pills, shakes, appetite suppressants, this fad diet, that fad diet… Listen to me here – it is all crap.

So what is the truth?
The truth is we are being malnourished.

Yes I see you looking sideways at me, thinking “how can malnourishment be the problem when the problem is excess weight and eating too much?”

The problem starts with the soil. It no longer contains the trace minerals that used to be absorbed into our fruits, vegetables and grains. Now add to that the majority of what people eat are now GMO (genetically modified) which means they have been scientifically altered. The reason they have been altered is so that they will produce more crops faster and more resistant to bugs. Growing faster means less actual maturation and they yield less nutrition. Add to that they also cellularly produce their own pesticide internally, which we consume as well and you are eating poisonous non-nutritious vegetables and fruits and grains that can actually cause disease and severe allergic reaction in many people.

Compounding this problem is our meat supply – if you still eat meat, our livestock is being mistreated, miss fed, cooped up in hazardous conditions, and treated with high levels of antibiotics in many cases. These are not healthy animals and they do not produce healthy meats.

People are not cooking for themselves at home as in decades past. Fast food, restaurants, boxed and packaged items are the norm. Processing, preservatives, canning, all of it leeches the nutrition out of our foods leaving us eating essentially dead food. We are what we eat… and we are fast becoming a nation of living dead humans.

When we eat nutritionally deficient foods our bodies give us the cue to eat more because what we just ate frankly did not make the cut.

That is where over eating comes into play. You aren’t weak. You are legitimately hungry for real food and nutrition and your body is screaming for you to help it. The problem is that most don’t recognize the problem and keep on with more servings of yet more nutritionally deficient foods. This leads to weight gain.

When you eat actual organic non-gmo fresh foods you are getting not just calories. You are getting vitamins, nutrients and actual sustenance. When your body receives this? You stop being hungry as it has found what it was searching for.

When you eat good live nutritious foods from the earth that have not been messed with by science or processing you find that you really don’t need to count calories. Your body will naturally work with you and stop eating when you are full and have had enough.

 

Recommendations:

-Drink as close to a gallon of non fluoridated water daily

-Add in ½ teaspoon of Pink Himalayan Salt (this restores the 72 trace minerals missing from the soil that you need to live and be healthy) *pink salt will not raise your blood pressure, and in fact may lower it.

-Stop with the table salt entirely. Just throw it out.

-Eat organic, local, non gmo veggies, fruits and grains sparingly as much as possible.

-Limit meats, and do free range grass fed when possible.

-Eggs, same thing – organic free range, cage free

-Drink water with fresh squeezed lemon or lime upon waking daily

-Eat when you are hungry. Follow your body’s cues… small meals/healthy snacks 3-4-5 times a day is great.

-And of course get out there and move. Be active.

 

Enjoy your food. Food and calories are not the enemy.. They are here for us to take pleasure in. “Everything I eat turns to health and beauty!”

If you aren’t sure where to start I suggest The Earth Diet. www.theearthdiet.org

 

 

 

 

 

Not So Natural Selection

We are reaching the crux of a very turbulent time in the history of mankind. It is getting more and more tricky to navigate through life in general and expect to come out on the upside of it.

The diabolical powers that be are playing a deadly game with us all. Corporations have become intermingled with government all playing their own political and financial reindeer games with us as their pawns.

It seems that no one is safe and nothing is out-of-bounds or off-limits. Our air, our water supplies, and our food, what is passing for medicine – all of it is toxic and all of it is intended by design to slowly cull the population. Our police forces are very quickly transitioning from the intended use as peace officers to a military state where our rights are being stripped away one by one on a daily basis and we are allowing all of this to happen.

Why?

We are distracted from what is really happening by tabloids, reality TV, mainstream media news, and by other uninformed friends, colleagues and neighbors. It takes work and persistence at this point to really be paying attention, digging for truth, thinking for yourself and making your choices based in knowledge rather than propaganda and hear say.

It has come down to one big round of distractions and false flags in efforts to divert attention and the majority is eating it right up and playing right along.

Where does this leave us?

Schools are purposefully dumbing down the curriculum and shoving kids through who aren’t learning. No child left behind has accomplished what it was said to intend to only from the physical perspective. Adults are not reading like they used to either – with 500 channels on TV, Hulu, Blockbuster and Netflix more people than ever just push a button and stare at a box for their entertainment. Many still believe that the government works for and protects them. They trust their government. The trust the FDA and believe that GMO foods were created to help feed the world and that they are safe to eat, they believe fully in the illusion.

This is more dangerous than I can possibly even begin to put into words. Blind faith with no thought behind it will ultimately lead you to your own demise. Welcome to “Not so Natural Selection.” This time around it’s not just nature, but a scientific and politically motivated as well as assisted version of natural selection. Depopulation is happening, one by one, illness by manufactured illness.

It is your choice. Educate yourself, fight, live and flourish or sit back, do nothing in which case it’s been nice knowing you.
