    Happy Labor Day! Summer seems to have zipped by along with the rest of this year. -- hard to believe that we have less than 4 months left in 2011.

    It was very exciting to have the cover story in last month's Tampa Bay Wellness magazine, entitled "Our Modern Food Supply -- Can you trust it?" We have reprinted this thought-provoking article below and if you would like to see the editorial version, click here.

    Tune in on Labor Day to The Daytime Show to see my latest segment on "sensible sweeteners." Considering the alarming statistics coming out about our intake of sugar (School children average 337 calories a day from sugar-based beverages) you might get some ideas for delicious, nutritious alternatives.

    Speaking of delicious and nutritious, we hope to have our "SuperSnacks" food line launched a later later this fall and will keep you updated. One of our products -- Maple Glazed Walnuts, is our monthly featured recipe.

    Enjoy the holiday!

    Our Modern Food Supply
    Old MacDonald


    Old MacDonald had a farm. And on that farm he had some chicks, cows and soybeans.

    Sadly, Old MacDonald no longer owns his farm. He simply couldn't compete with the mega corporations that control modern American farming. Oh, he tried -- but his expenses were becoming astronomical to produce the high-quality organic livestock he raised and he simply couldn't get the return he needed to eke out a living.

    So, Old MacDonald tried soybeans. Foreseeing the potential dangers inherent to genetically modified organisms, MacDonald chose to grow his crops organically. But seeds from his neighbor's genetically-engineered soybean fields blew over the fences and contaminated his crop. Then the conglomerate holding the patent on those GMO seeds, sued MacDonald for patent violations and bankrupted him. Finally, MacDonald had no choice but to sell the family farm that his family had owned and operated for more than 100 years.

    There are thousands of former farmers across the U.S. with stories like Old MacDonald. Consequently, farming, and the food we eat, isn't what it used to be. Back then, most of our food was supplied by family farmers who took pride in bringing high quality foods to American tables. Today, our food supply is controlled by a handful of businesses, constantly seeking new ways to cut costs and increase their profits. Too often, that quest for profit leads to a
    n over-processed, yet less nutritious food supply. When you shop in your local supermarket, just about every item you find on the shelves, refrigerator and freezer sections are manufactured by four or five mega-corporations. Considering how much income that generates for these monopolies, they have unimaginable resources for creating the most cutting edge marketing, advertising and promotional campaigns. READ MORE HERE

    Nuts Over Walnuts
    glazed walnuts

    In an article by Dr. David Katz, Director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale presents scientific data from a couple of studies that tout the therapeutic benefits of walnuts (which have come to be my new favorite nuts). In one study, they found that "adding walnuts to the daily diet of adults with Type 2 diabetes for two months significantly improved blood vessel health, as measured by something called endothelial function." (Source)

    A great movie to get a visual orientation on how endothelial cells function is Forks Over Knives - it was released this summer and probably available for an online download by now. These honey-comb shaped cells play a vital role in how blood flows through our arterial systems; The faster the blood surges through your arteries, the more youthful and vibrant your organs.

    Spirulina - Green Power
    Raw Fusion Solution

    An antidoge for irregular eating habits or over-indulgence, just a few tablets of organic spirulina can do the trick. I carry spiruline tablets (easily found in health food stores, Trader Joe's or online) in my purse and take 6 tablets when I feel the need for an extra dose of greens, consume a high carb meal or to balance my blood sugar after having a dessert.

    Spirulina is derived from a tiny aquatic plant (algae) and is an Incredibly rich source of digestible protein, and other macronutrients. It also has an astounding nutritional profile that includes B12 (ideal for vegans), Thiamine, Calcium, Riboflavin, Iron and minerals.

    This reasonably-priced superfood, which contains RNA has also been shown to increase mental concentration. Can you imagine the implications of harvesting spirulina implications for solving some of this world's food shortage problems?
