Irony for breakfast

Post by ArthurJ » Mon Feb 04, 2019 4:46 pm

You gotta love the irony in the disconnect of our modern food supply. I was eating fresh strawberries, watermelon and an orange for breakfast today looking out my window at an inch of freshly fallen snow covering the ground and streets. :roll:

it's amazingly status quo! i work pretty hard at being a locavore esp where fresh perishables are concerned - not super rigid about it and it's still not exactly easy.
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

It sure beats moldy rye grain though.

When Linnda Caporael began nosing into the Salem witch trials as a college student in the early 1970s, she had no idea that a common grain fungus might be responsible for the terrible events of 1692. But then the pieces began to fall into place. (continues)

my preferred local craft bakery and purveyor of fave locally sourced and produced rye bread was bought out relatively recently by a mexican multinational manufacturer. call me delusional but i'm still counting it as local.

In this global economy, 'local' now easily means worldwide! I have discovered many, many, beneficial foods and supplements that are now 'local' to me giving me access to the best of the best thanks to the internet and fast shipping worldwide that would have been impossible for me to procure just a few years ago...

mixed berries purchased from a local farm and frozen last season. enjoying these today in a bowl of steel cut oats and milk topped with flax seed and maple syrup.

OT re lunch: leftover casserole (fresh local onions, potatoes, mushrooms, homegrown dried herbs and frozen peas with west coast wild tinned salmon) on a bed of local cabbage. seasonal and sooo tasty.
