What Kids Hear About Fat BingeBehavior.com

What Kids Hear About Fat BingeBehavior.com | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it
I’ve been hearing a lot of cranky comments lately about “…it’s for their own good” and “…they need to suck it up and get a thicker skin” as it relates to the ‘right’ to comment on the size or shape of a stranger’s body.  While I have very strong...
Steve Kingsley's insight:

According to the author, "Today, the younger generation no longer thinks of fat as simply a descriptor for shape or a biological substance, they equate it to lazy, bad, evil, uneducated, unacceptable and unlovable." 


Another "feel good" article and "solution."  In my experience, if the parents or caretakers are trim and fit so are their children

Sometimes the person with dementia resists brushing their teeth. This shows that the process is a lot more valuable than a sweet breath.

Urban Farming: an Architect’s Answer to 'Green'?

Urban Farming: an Architect’s Answer to 'Green'? | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Sustainable. Local. Natural. Green. Architects talk about these words all the time but what do they really mean?


'To present the concept of Urban Farming, I’ve collected images of existing urban farms that are already “digging into” (on/over/through) the built environment – doing amazing things for food, people, cities, communities, and sustainability –  as well as conceptual urban farming architecture – projects which begin to rethink the word “farm,” especially in the urban environment, and offer a very bold response to the question, “What is Green Architecture?” Some of these ideas may seem pretty far-fetched, but I’ll bet not many people thought we’d be farming all over rooftops in NYC either! And they’re not only doing it, they’re doing it sustainably + successfully. Architecture could stand to learn a thing or 2 from these urban farms…'

RE comment that some of these ideas seem pretty far fetched...sad that we feel we need to temper ideas with statements  like this.Once upon a time landing on the moon and having personal computers also seemed far fetched. Thinking beyond current boundaries is what is needed to tackle issues of food production and sustainable living for the future , now!

 

"Naively ambitious, maybe. But as a twitter-mate noted, “creating food AND jobs and making productive use of vacant land and changing the urban landscape in a huge way!” is in my opinion extremely exciting and worth every effort of that ambition!"

 

.....I couldn't agree more!

Let' s get inspired and figure out how to make  far fetched  ideas work and work sustainably and effectively.

Did Aspartame kill Cory Terry?

Did Aspartame kill Cory Terry? | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Cory Terry Died After Drinking Red Bull, $85 Million Wrongful Death Suit Claims, is the title of a recent article in the Huffington Post that reports on a rather unusual death. Cory Terry downed a Red Bull when he finished a basketball game and a few minutes later he died of a heart attack.

 

Red Bull comes in different formulations, the dark blue normal and a - supposedly more healthy - 'diet' or sugar free version, which is the light blue one... To be sure, we don't know which one Terry preferred. Was it the normal or the diet version that killed him?

 

Betty Martini believes it was 'diet' and that the damage was done by a specific ingredient: the aspartame that supplants sugar in the diet version. Betty says she knows of other cases of athletes having heart attacks after consuming soft drinks that contain aspartame.

Recent studies and progressive nutritionists say it's time to include the yolk in your breakfast because:


  1. Egg yolks are nutrient dense
  2. Cholesterol has important functions in the body
  3. Dietary cholesterol, like that found in eggs, doesn’t raise blood cholesterol
  4. Whole eggs can lead to weight loss
  5. They’re hearty and satisfying
