Native American food hoop our ancestors depended on for food in the Northwest.
Our ancestors traveled with the seasons, gathered Camas, Breadroot, and other
plants, careful not to take too much, and thanking Spirit for abundance, so
their children would never hunger. "Civilization" has plowed
under and paved over the majority of these early staples.
The average US meal travels 1500
miles to get to your plate. Think global climate imbalance and resource
wars. A "locovore" diet is healthier for you and the planet.
The processes of refrigeration, transporting, over-tilling, -watering, and
-fertilizing produce copious greenhouse-trapping gasses. We are eating
food without soul--produced in mass volume, heedless of nutritional value,
spirit, or care for the next generations.
The solution is in boxes
delivered by your local community Supported Agriculture, at the farmers market,
and in your own backyard. A "low carbon" diet travels 17 to 66
times fewer miles than the typical non-local diet. There is a movement to
proliferate 2'x2' garden beds and food growing education among
urban folks who have limited access to
fresh vegetables. Food-Not-Lawns is working hard to turn
Rhododendrons into Rutabagas. It takes surprisingly little space and time
to grow enough food to impact our environmental footprint, our health, our sense
of well-being and self-sufficiency.
Re-visioning our diet can help
heal the Earth, thwart global warming and resource wars. Reinventing the
way we eat is really about remembering our ancestral heritage, and using common
sense, permaculture and mutual support to provide for each other's food needs.
Maybe it's time we reevaluate what we consider comfort foods. (Barbara

And Now It's Tainted with Salmonella
a recall of an acronym HVP, or "hydrolyzed vegetable protein"
found in soups, sauces, chilis, stews, hot dogs, gravies, snack foods,
dips and dressings. It could lead to the largest food recall in U.S. history.
The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration has announced a recall of millions of pounds of a product
you've never heard of, made by a company you've never heard of, that's in a lot
of foods you have not only heard of, but most certainly eaten. It's made by
Basic Food Flavors Inc. in Las Vegas, Nevada and it's called HVP. (No, it's
not the STD.)
HVP is short for hydrolyzed vegetable protein, a ubiquitous food-like
substance found in just about every category of processed foods available in
Already dozens of those
processed foods have been recalled, and you can expect many more. The Washington
Post and others predict this could lead to the biggest food recall in U.S.
Even so, the FDA and other
federal agencies are counting the discovery of salmonella typically found
in feces, not food in the product as a success because they think a
customer of Basic Food Flavors blew
the whistle on the contamination before it caused anyone to get sick.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal
infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with
weakened immune systems. Even healthy people don't have fun consuming it...
unless fever, bloody diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain are your
idea of a good time. The risk of widespread illness from this recall is
considered low because both subsequent food makers and consumers typically
heat these foods to a high enough temperature that the salmonella is killed.
If the FDA's optimism proves
true, then ... Good job, food regulators. But the incident opens a window on
the industrialized food system and how easily it can sicken us, rather than

produced by boiling cereals
or legumes, such as soy, corn, or wheat, in hydrochloric acid and then
neutralizing the solution with sodium hydroxide. The acid hydrolyzes, or
breaks down, the protein in vegetables into their component amino acids. The
resulting dark coloured liquid contains, among other amino acids, glutamic
acid, which consumers are more familiar with in the form of its sodium salt,
monosodium glutamate, or MSG. It is used as a flavor enhancer in many
processed foods, and known to cause violent reactions in many people, as
well as being a carcinogen.
That's what they talk about
when they talk about industrialized food. When's the last time you boiled your
veggies in hydrochloric acid (also used to make
PVC) before cooking up a nice soup? The great thing about using lye
(sodium hydroxide) as a finishing agent, is that you can keep extra on hand
for making chemical

This one company is supplying
that product to multiple food manufacturers (just listen to that phrase,
"food manufacturers"; it doesn't sound like a farm, does it?).
Multiple manufacturers produce foods (or food-like substances, as Michael

contamination in such a base ingredient occurs, the result can easily be
contamination of entire shelves' worth of grocery store items. And many people
If hazelnuts are recalled, you
can know to avoid hazelnuts. When HVP is recalled, you'd have to avoid just
about any processed, packaged food to avoid it. (Which isn't such a bad idea,

"This situation clearly
underscores the need for new food safety legislation to equip FDA with the
tools we need to prevent contamination," said Dr. Jeff Farrar, associate

Where do you get your stevia? No
one here in RI will sell it.
From: Mark D. Gold (mgold.holisticmed.com):
You should suggest to your local
natural food stores and herb stores in RI that the legal status of stevia has
changed recently. While importation of stevia was banned to protect Monsanto's
NutraSweet sales and the future sales of other artificial sweeteners a few years
ago, stevia can now be sold as a "dietary supplement." I have a copy
of the FDA's new "Import Alert" on my Web page (or I can email it to
you). Stevia products can and have been sold over the last few years as skin
treatment products. Therefore, your local natural foods store should be able to
get stevia skin treatment products and supplements from their distributor (or
they should find a distributor who does sell it).
Stevia still cannot be legally
sold as a "sweetener" by itself or in another product. This will help
protect companies such as Monsanto (selling a dangerous artificial sweetener -
aspartame) from having to compete against a safe, natural sweetener on a
large-scale basis. But at least individuals can now use stevia as a supplement.
I have a list of stevia
resources on my web page which you can use and give to your local natural foods
store. Hope this helps.

I'm kinda a probiotics
pusher, lol. (I'm with you, Pat...and for the natural ones~Windhorse)
There are some 500-1000 different microbials which inhabit and reproduce in
the gut. Some are only there transiently and therefore, to have a
"healthy" gut (based upon our historical traditional cultures), we
need to consume beneficial microbials regularly. Whole food probiotics more
effectively remain viable until they reach the large intestine. Most bottled
probiotics are denatured during transportation, and don't survive the
stomach acid to make it to the gut.
Also, the regular consumption of probiotics alters the ph in the gut, which
impacts which microbials can survive and reproduce there. By consuming whole
food probiotics (proper ph medium for surviving until they reach the large
intestine, more microbial balance, etc.), we create an environment which is
less hospitable for pathogenic bacteria. Btw, antibiotics DAMAGE the gut
microbial balance by killing off the beneficial bacteria, which often leads
to candida overgrowth and disrupted gut ph, and thus fewer beneficial
bacteria and more pathogenic bacteria repopulating the gut.
"Selection Criteria for Probiotics": http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0ISW/is_2003_Feb-March/ai_97...
Basically, most probiotics are not viable all the way to the gut, due to
heat destruction during transportation and storage, acidity in the stomach,
and low viability powders and capsules, and yogurts without billions of
"Active Live Cultures".
This link discusses specific brands of different probiotics: http://www.usprobiotics.org/products.asp
Also, it is important to rotate probiotics otherwise "probiotic
resistance" could develop, I've read. Don't use single strain
probiotics exclusively; and DO rotate them every 4-7 days. The Probiotic
Solution champions the "pulsing and rotating probiotics". http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0ISW/is_252/ai_n6112818/
Sacchromyces boulardii is a "good" yeast which lives in the gut
longer and displaces candida. It is in kombucha.
I prefer whole foods which are naturally cultured or fermented: kefir or
yogurt from cow, goat, coconut, almond, hemp seed milk, etc. And fermented
foods. Bubbies brand sauerkraut and dill pickles are easy to add to the
diet. Plus, kombucha, which actually displaces and replaces candida albicans
in the large intestines---caution if you have or ever had any mercury
(silver) fillings in your teeth.
"Homemade yogurt that is fermented for 24 hours, will have an average
concentration of 3 billion cfu/mL of yogurt. If you were to eat a small bowl
(500 ml) of 24 hour fermented homemade yogurt, you would receive 1.5
trillion beneficial bacteria - 100 times more bacteria than a 15 billion
Furthermore, freshly made kefir can have an average microbial count as high
as 10 billion cfu/ml. This includes a mixture of various bacteria and yeast
strains. This means that a 500 ml glass of homemade kefir could contain as
many as 5 trillion beneficial microorganisms or even more!"
"Both kefir and yogurt are cultured milk products... ...but they
contain different types of beneficial bacteria. Yogurt contains transient
beneficial bacteria that keep the digestive system clean and provide food
for the friendly bacteria that reside there. But kefir can actually colonize
the intestinal tract, a feat that yogurt cannot match.
Kefir contains several major strains of friendly bacteria not commonly found
in yogurt, Lactobacillus Caucasus, Leuconostoc, Acetobacter species, and
It also contains beneficial yeasts, such as Saccharomyces kefir and Torula
kefir, which dominate, control and eliminate destructive pathogenic yeasts
in the body. They do so by penetrating the mucosal lining where unhealthy
yeast and bacteria reside, forming a virtual SWAT team that housecleans and
strengthens the intestines. Hence, the body becomes more efficient in
resisting such pathogens as E. coli and intestinal parasites.
Kefir's active yeast and bacteria provide more nutritive value than yogurt
by helping digest the foods that you eat and by keeping the colon
environment clean and healthy.
Because the curd size of kefir is smaller than yogurt, it is also easier to
digest, which makes it a particularly excellent, nutritious food for babies,
invalids and the elderly, as well as a remedy for digestive disorders."
Oral administration of milk kefir and soymilk kefir for 28 days
significantly increased the fecal populations of bifidobacteria and
lactobacilli, while it significantly decreased those of Clostridium
Milk kefir and soymilk kefir also significantly decreased the serum
OVA-specific IgE and IgG1 levels for both groups, but not those of the IgG2a
analogues. Consumption of milk kefir and soymilk kefir suppressed the IgE
