"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." - Hippocrates

Food Matters is my winter nutrition and food documentary refresher!

The advantage of watching Food Matters at this time of year is it gives you early motivations for new year nutrition goals.  I chose not to do a summary interview because many of the “same ol’” characters and subjects from my other documentaries are here. But, I was thoroughly impressed that it held its own.

I’m back to doing what I love!  I have 15 more documentaries to go, a few certifications and a book in the works!

It has been a long winding journey, but I’m in it for the rewards and long run.

Step 2: Baby takes his first steps. Mother nervously stares at human observers. She knows what’s coming. She’s seen it before.

I don’t believe in harassing meat eaters, but I’d like people to get a reality of where their meals are coming from.

Vegan: Coping with failure (by Ann Noire)

I am not a raw vegan failure!

Judging by the calendar, I’d call myself a failure at adopting a plant-based lifestyle.  But, if I embrace the journey, I’d say I’m an “inspiration in training.”

I learned far more on the journey failing than pretending to be raw vegan, which can get restrictive at times. My experience makes me human, and less woo-woo cultish when approaching a person who needs to add more phytonutrients, minerals, vitamins, and energy to their life.

I will continue my journey.

Ann!

#34 Hungry for Change

I’m back!  My 50 Docs Challenge on food and nutrition is still on!  I started with Hungry For Change documentary.

 Points I Took Away From Hungry For Change

  • Obesity is not the same as gluttony; food addictions and excitoxins  play a major role in obesity. Excitotoxins such as aspartame and MSG can mask satiation and cause carbohydrate addiction.
  • Companies engineer addiction into food through ingredients.
  • Phosphoric acid from soft drinks causes bone and mineral degeneration.  
  • Don’t focus on dieting.  Start adding better ingredients to your meals.  Add the “good” until it floods out the “bad.”
  • Give yourself permission to embrace sleep and rest to avoid high stress hormone levels.
