Food-Label

anonymous asked:

I guess by you not buying into the "illuminati" creates a reality where it doesnt exist. But Can you really ignore institutional racism, 911 lies, war for profit, the poisin in our food and water and tell yourslf that there isn't something going on?

I *used* to believe in a lot of that, don’t get me wrong, I read: Divine Conspiracies, 911 lies, Financial Tyranny, David wilcock’s blog was like my bible and I READ everything under the sun about x,y and z that I need to do to decalify my pineal gland, avoid my ego, and make sure the illuminati doesn’t steal my soul while i’m having an astral project experience. Yes I drank the New Age Kool-aid. I believed EVERYTHING.

I was the crazy one who obsessed about food labels, strictly ate organic foods on a tight budget, only used clean natural products and used fluoride free toothpaste just in case something might happen….Then one day I woke up after an ego death experience having faced the death of the Ego and said to myself:  

NONE of this shit matters! 

How the fuck does this help my life? I’m even afraid of eating?! 

Suddenly I am an epiphany, I am DOWSED in fear tactics and ABSOLUTE NEW AGE BULLSHIT. These articles are laced in fear tactics and old world dualism of FEAR-induced thinking. Even after awakening, if you feed on this info you’re feeding on the old world of dualism and fear. 

The New Age circles are filled with dualistic perceptions rooted in fear, insecurity, lack of control of personal reality and the judgmental paradigm of creating an unconscious hierarchy. Dark ones vs. light ones. wtf is that?

 We’re creating an old belief and storyline because we don’t feel we are in control and are prisoner to our experiences. When we’re the ones guiding the ship, we created this! 

Do I want to stay stuck in this fear paradigm of illusions? 

So we create all these little ridiculous fear mechanism that rooted into everything we are generating inside our reality. The illuminati, fear of food, fear of chemicals, fear of dark ones, fear of entities, fear of psychic attack, fear, fear, fear, When fear is an illusion of separation, it doesn’t exist. 

Fear is merely a construct you create around your insecurities that are creating symbolic representations inside your reality through the ego so you can create something you understand through the subconscious.

nothing external can dominate over the consious perception of our minds. You are ALWAYS in control, you guide your thoughts, you take action, you give belief which generates into meaning and symbol manifesting into your reality. 

The more you stay here, in this fear paradigm of illiminati bullshit, the more you are generating fear laced experiences, insecurities and feeling like a limited person of experience. 

I said enough. None of these things are hurting me but they are making me live like a crazy panic-induced weirdo who is afraid of chemicals, water,  and eatting food!

 It’s time to move forward. Nothing can stop spiritual progress because everything is energy.

The universe doesn’t want us to live life in fear and misery?

No the universe desires us to live in love, abundance, prosperity, happiness and infinite possibilities.

It is merely the energy and belief you are putting behind the idea in your reality.

What you create is from the energy behind it. What are you focusing on?

It’s just beliefs. 
The choice is yours. 

Fear /ungrounded/ insecurity = limited beliefs
Love / Divine Guidance rooted in material world / security = empowered beliefs


Don’t believe everything you read. Instead learn to manage your energy and generate empowering beliefs that make your life unlimited.

That’s the real lesson

Why the ‘Natural’ Labeling on Food Is More About Marketing Than Healthy Eating

Tips for Using the Food Label

Most packaged foods have a Nutrition Facts label. Here are some tips for reading the label and making smart food choices:

Check servings and calories. Look at the serving size and how many servings you are actually eating. 

tip: If you eat 2 servings of a food, you will consume double the calories and double the % Daily Value (% DV) of the nutrients listed on the Nutrition Facts label.

Make your calories count. Look at the calories on the label and compare them with the nutrients they offer. 

tip: When you look at a food’s nutrition label, first check the calories, and then check the nutrients to decide whether the food is worth eating.

Eat less sugar. Foods with added sugars may provide calories, but few essential nutrients. So, look for foods and beverages low in added sugars. Read the ingredient list, and make sure added sugars are not one of the first few ingredients.

tip: Names for added sugars (caloric sweeteners) include sucrose, glucose, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, maple syrup, and fructose.

Know your fats. Look for foods low in saturated and trans fats, and cholesterol, to help reduce the risk of heart disease. Most of the fats you eat should be polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, such as those in fish, nuts, and vegetable oils. 


External image

tip: Fat should be in the range of 20% to 35% of the calories you eat.

Reduce sodium (salt); increase potassium. Research shows that eating less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium (about 1 tsp of salt) per day may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Older adults tend to be salt-sensitive. If you are older adult or salt-sensitive, aim to eat no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium each day—the equivalent of about ¾ teaspoon. To meet the daily potassium recommendation of at least 4,700 milligrams, consume fruits and vegetables, and fat-free and low-fat milk products that are sources of potassium including: sweet potatoes, beet greens, white potatoes, white beans, plain yogurt, prune juice, and bananas. These counteract some of sodium’s effects on blood pressure. 


External image

tip: Most sodium you eat is likely to come from processed foods, not from the salt shaker. Read the Nutrition Facts label, and choose foods lower in sodium and higher in potassium.

External image


Use the % Daily Value (% DV) column: 5% DV or less is low, and 20% DV or more is high. 
Keep these low: saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, and sodium.
Get enough of these: potassium and fiber, vitamins A, C, and D, calcium, and iron.
Check the calories: 400 or more calories per serving of a single food item is high.

Ingredients in Dog Food: Additives to Withhold - Part 1

Introduction

Learnedness a typical squeeze shut food label chokey leave most pet owners feeling mentally dried-up.

Once you are past the recognizable ingredients in dog food (which says marginal matter about their tone) you are often left by various chemical components, which can hold difficult to broadcast and decipher: BHA, BHT, propylene glycol, propyl gallate, ethoxquin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, dl methionine, and so on.

Versus assess every ingredient in your pet’s food would require several pages anent working-out, and would be about as fun to declaim as an actual maltese eats azure. Thus, in this article, BREATH OF LIFE think proper merely highlight powerfully specific additives that should be avoided.

Good Personable Caveats

Before steeplechase in, ONE AND ONLY wanted up share two marked list:

1) First, SPIRITUAL BEING am a huge, huge fan of feeding your dog a diet of homemade recipes. Sworn testimony after testimony confirms the dramatic changes that occur in dogs when owners make the switch from radio fare as far as homemade recipes. However, back when not everyone is inclined till prepare meals for their pets, then the next best strap is to exist aware of the ingredients in your pet’s grub.

2) Secondly, we should keep a healthy misgiving regarding the ingredients in dog food, but not an overstimulated one. Not everything that has a strange-sounding bigwigged is harmful charge even potentially unsound. Pyridoxine hydrochloride, for example, is relatively another name for vitamin B6. We should be well-prepared consumers not easily scared ones.

Some Additives so as to Hold back

All right erenow, the second string additives that you should avoid in beloved victuals are: BHA, BTA, ethoxquin, propylene glycol and propyl gallate. Many dog food rating systems will downgrade any food that contains these ingredients.

In this main article, we will concentrate accidental BHA & BHT together, since yours truly partake of similar functions. Let’s take a closer idolize at one and all:

BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) & BHT (butylated hydroxytolulene)

BHA and BHT are antioxidants irretrievable to cover the verbosity additives in favorite eatables from junoesque rancid. (Again, we will set aside this unpleasant notion of having to aspergillum featherbedding on dog foodstuff so make it clearness good.)

The U.S. National Institute of Normalness reports that BHA is intelligently promised to be a creature carcinogen. (Cover Report on Carcinogens, CAS No. 25013-16-5) In high doses, it has been linked to cancer in rats and hamsters. Thus remote, BHA remains on the FDA’s Generally Accepted As Safe list (GRAS).

BHT is a controversial ingredient, which has been continuous to elevated cancer risks (See Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT)“, IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks up Humans, 1986;40:161-206.)

Both BHA and BHT have been tabooed for instance pap additives inside of many countries for decades.

Conclusion

Even this cursory review of these preservatives should market any dog lover pause howbeit feeding their well-beloved a metronomic diet of manufactured commercial pet food.

As I continue to set, homemade recipes assert alter ego in charge of the ingredients in your polecat food and will steer yourself ameliorate in regard to so very much many ominous additives. But prohibition that, it is imperative that you read your dog food labels and avoid the above-mentioned chemicals.

The folks at Good organized a competition to redeisgn the food label:

Peter Smith, Winners! Redesign the Food Label

The overall winner was Renée Walker, who received some help from food scientist Harold McGee. Here’s what the judges had to say about her label:

Michael Pollan, author of Food Rules, said:

Walker’s design is dramatic, intriguing and holds great promise. I liked being able to see the visual breakdown of foods, although I wonder how her design would work with more complicated products, like Lucky Charms, say, or a PowerBar. Even so, it’s a step in the right direction. What I’d like to see next is some sort of color coding for the food groups and some attempt to show the degree of processing of various foods. Eating doesn’t have to be complicated; figuring out what’s in your food shouldn’t be either.

The word “natural” means nothing.


There are no government regulations on the word “natural” like there are for the word “organic,” so any products can use this word on whim. “Natural” just means it’s grown from the ground, that it can be found in nature, and not all “natural” things are necessarily good for you. Rattlesnake venom is natural. Arsenic is natural. Hemlock is natural.

Don’t always believe what you see.
