While looking for some online and I came across a company named Kopari. Kopari apparently is a beauty cream made from coconut oil..
$34USD for 7.oz??? This is cocaine prices. Do you people not know you can get a jar of coconut oil for $6. A JAR So i felt like maybe I was overreacting a jumping to conclusions. Maybe its more than coconut… PEOPLE, THIS IS JUST COCONUT OIL!
Thats right… $8.60 PER POUND for pure coconut oil. if we say there are 16oz in 1lb, thats $0.54 an ounce. So at the sizes offered we are talking about $3.75…. Kapri is up selling this stuff 900%!
There’s some baby abs there despite eating everything in sight while trying to put on some weight (which I am 😁) - currently I don’t track religiously but I adhere to some simple principles …. I eat carbs everyday, and with every meal apart from breakfast. And on training days and around my training I rack up loads of them. I eat protein with every meal (other than sometimes my evening oats) and I get fats from coconut oil, pure butter and fatty meats. I don’t rack up calories in any liquid form (fizzy juices, juices, alcohol) as I prefer to eat my calories and get them from nutritious foods mainly. I eat whatever I want on the weekend but don’t go crazy it can be a pasta, burger, some sweet potato fries, maybe some ice cream if I fancy it …. If I fancy something off plan or a meal out during the week I DONT STRESS IT ! Life doesn’t have to be full of restrictions but a strong metabolism can time to adapt especially if you’re body is used to being put thru over training and dietary / calorie restriction…. It also require MUSCLE and muscle require constant maintenance - or you loose them. I work my ass off in the gym … I am rarely dying in a puddle of sweat but I make sure I squeeze hard and focus on tempo and muscle contraction above all. Are you sleeping? Are you digesting & pooping? 💩, are you stressed a lot? These questions are way more important than - what protein powder should I take…. Or how much cardio should I do….
I’m watching a series of vegan cooking videos on youtube and while they are interesting i think i finally nailed down why the organic granola health food aesthetic bothers me, at least one reason.
its because there is no possible way that anybody could have made these cookies or whatever before widespread colonialism, imperialism, industrialization, etc. And that’s true of a lot of our food– but most of our food doesn’t claim itself to be “better for you” or “back to nature” or somehow more wholesome by default.
it would be highly impossible for somebody to get all of these ingredients together, to mix them together, to think to mix them together while avoiding certain other ingredients, before an age of taking globalization for granted. You couldn’t build a dish like this out of what you could trade within a 20 mile radius, anywhere on earth. You couldn’t get this specific assemblage of tapioca flour, variety of nuts, pure cane sugar, quinoa, coconut oil + milk, banana, organic bread flour, etc. Meanwhile much of it is highly processed while claiming to be less processed and more ‘healthy’ than nonvegan foods.
Almost everywhere in the world, a plant-based diet is associated with some measure of poverty. With eating a very limited number of nutrition-poor foods every day because nothing else is available. And in the west that’s simultaneously associated with health (diet culture, blaming people’s health and body size on the food available to them they can afford) yet dreaded because it’s dull and boring and a mark of being poor etc. The very first thing people suggest those struggling with food security is “honey :) have you tried rice and beans :) :)” yet they will go out of their way to avoid that reality of “veganism” in much of the world is rice and beans. They will spend tons of middle class money to diversify their diet in a purposefully wasteful way that has never been seen before as natural behavior on earth. Meanwhile here in the USA at least we take for granted the variety of things in our grocery stores as if its the normal state of the world, as if the reasons we have such choice about what to eat isn’t even a big deal.
Like there are plenty of people who are vegan and also get this and are champs at balancing how unnatural their cuisine is and what actually is available + affordable to eat without blowing ridiculous money. But there are also plenty of people who don’t and are like “I avoid this problem by eating locally sourced produce only :) :)” meanwhile they are either lying or that produce is being grown in a rooftop greenhouse for a fortune because, surprise, bananas, almonds, coconuts, eggplants, don’t grow here and there’s no fresh lettuce in winter. That they’re available to us at all isn’t natural and isn’t something to be glossed over.
