Aquaponic Gardening

Aquaponic Gardening | healthy diet |
Do you like the idea of being able to grow your own fresh vegetables all year long?  Do you like the idea of having fresh fish without all the mercury and pesticides that can be found in store bought fish for you and your family?
Baily Brindle's insight:

I have always been fascinated by the world of aquaponics, and this was a neet find for me. I love the idea of recycling nitrogen emitted by fish to fuel fres veggies, not so much about eating the fish. If I were to do somthiing like this outside of college, with a stable career and living space, I dont think I would want most likley choose koi as they look pretty and I dont plan to eat botom feeder fish. Still, I could really get into somthing like this, sicne Aquaponis could really suppliment my vegitable intake.

Baily Brindle's insight:

OH GOD! OH GOD! Never again! This image always disgust me, and it is a good indecator that this food is aweful for me and anyone else exposed to this filth. From now on, I believe I will pick every piece of processed chicken out of my salad, and NEVER eat a McNugget again.

Going into this I knew what I was looking for in a breakfast (lots of portien, not too much sugar), but i could not help but get a little hungry and exited when I saw the variety of foods. That Pan A La Catalana looked scrumpcious! And is was made of tomatos, garlic, and olive oil! What could go wrong?

Vegetarian Diet Found Healthier… Again! | Health News Magazine

Vegetarian Diet Found Healthier… Again! | Health News Magazine | healthy diet |

You can now put away any doubts that a vegetarian diet is healthier. Researchers in China have just released the findings of a brand new study involving more than 124,000 participants; and once again, a vegetarian diet ...


Why it's important to me: I want to explore new ways to live a healthier lifestyle. I'm very active so looking into different ways to better fuel my body will be beneficial to my overall health.

Baily Brindle's insight:

I find the information in this article fascinating. A study in China claims that those who are vegitarians have a lower chance of developing illnesses like cancer  and heart disease. It also stresses the consumption of whole foods.  I believe the whole foods notion is especialy necessary in a diet, as we have not evolved to eat such heavily processed foods.

Mercury In Fish Linked To Diabetes 2, Study Finds

Mercury In Fish Linked To Diabetes 2, Study Finds | healthy diet |
Mercury exposure from eating fish and shellfish high in mercury was linked in young adults to later development of diabetes type 2, even after controlling for the health benefits of eating fish.

Via Kat Carroll
Baily Brindle's insight:

The article centers around health related isues involving merury in fish, but also claims that fish is also a key component to gaining omega 3 and other fatty acids. After reading the artilcle, I was not too concerned about my health. My family often eats Alaskan salmon (my father runs a fascilities in Alaska), and I do not believe I have ever eaten sworfish. It is good to know what to avoid though, and I will keep in mind what and where my fish comes from. P.S I have eaten shark before, and I do not believe I will ever do so again. Its terribly dry.

Kat Carroll's curator insight, April 8, 2013 10:45 AM
There was a study in the past few years showing that in those who had markers for the development of diabetes, those who had PCB/metals exposure would develop diabetes over those who did not have the exposure or who had cleansed it (FI Sauna use, etc.) so this is really nothing new but does highlight that we need to cleanse ourselves of heavy metals, PCBs, etc.

A Dozen Healthy Dinners for $3 a Serving

A Dozen Healthy Dinners for $3 a Serving | healthy diet |
The price is right with these home-cooked dinners, so skip the fast food and serve up one of these quick and easy meals that are rich in flavor.

Via Skip Boykin
Baily Brindle's insight:

How could I resist this article, A Dozen Healthy Dinners for $3 a Serving? I will be going to college, and with money eminently short at hand I will need such options. It is just that..... these foods do not look very good. In fact, the appaer a little bland, and $3 a serving concerns me with quality. Otherwise, it is a perfect fit, the meals seem healthy.

90 Healthy No-Heat Lunches for Taking to School or Work

90 Healthy No-Heat Lunches for Taking to School or Work | healthy diet |

When you don't have a place to heat food at the workplace, healthy lunches are a lot more challenging. Here are ideas for healthy brown bag lunches that don't need to be heated for a healthy tasty lunch. 

Via Andrea Zeitz
Baily Brindle's insight:

Okay, so school luch is not the best food in the world. In fact, it may register as some of the worst. I have had to stand at the salad bar of countless minutes to "possibly" recieve a salad, and I often do not feel very full afterward. So, it makes a good deal of sense that I would be attracketed to idea of bringing a healthy AND filling lunch. I love the selection that this list offers.

Anna Asp's curator insight, April 11, 2013 6:07 AM

Another article with recipes of healthy meals. This time, it is focused on lunches that are easy to bring to school or work - prefect for me! There are several salads with tomatoes - the easy cottege cheese salad with Za'atar sounds interesting, as well as the tomato, olive and fresh mozarella sallad with basil vinaigrette - and different pitas and wraps. Seven layer tostadas and the spicy shredded chicken lettuce wraps with avocado salsa sounds delicious, doesn't it? Then there are sallads with grain or quinoa, salads with chicken (like the one with lime, avocado and cilantro - yum!), and pasta salads (man, I am getting hungry just reading these.) Other recipes included shrimp and hummus (but it is not really politically correct to eat giant shrimps because of the extremely bad impact they have on the environment,) roasted asparagus wrapped in ham and slow roasted tomato hummus. This article is one that I am definately coming back to!

Great ideas for cold lunch days!

Processed meat 'early death' link

Processed meat 'early death' link | healthy diet |

Sausages, ham, bacon and other processed meats appear to increase the risk of dying young, a study of half a million people across Europe suggests.

It concluded diets high in processed meats were linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer and early deaths.

The researchers, writing in the journal BMC Medicine, said salt and chemicals used to preserve the meat may damage health.

The British Heart Foundation suggested opting for leaner cuts of meat.

The study followed people from 10 European countries for nearly 13 years on average.

Lifestyle factors

It showed people who ate a lot of processed meat were also more likely to smoke, be obese and have other behaviours known to damage health...

Cancer risk higher among people who eat more processed meat, study finds (The Guardian)

Baily Brindle's insight:

After reading this article, I do not know if I will look at a stake the same way again. Upon starting this venture I knew that it would be a good idea to avoid processed meat (we all know that a hotdog is noit a healthuy option), but red meat did not seem to come to mind. This information is very useful as I enjoy having a funcionting heart, but that ribeye does not aree to much with that notion.
