Bex talks with butcher Andrew Lupton of Brookvale Meats in Sydney Australia, about why people think grass-fed meat is expensive and how to always get it cheap!
Living on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia, we are fortunate to have several farmer’s markets and organic food shops and butchers very close to our home. So when we are traveling, it is always a challenge and adventure to find good quality food in our new destinations. We especially love food treasure hunting when we visit the other land of plenty: America.
Soy is all the rage these days, for the health-conscious, people avoiding dairy, and for those who just want to be on the bandwagon. Soy features in soy milks, butter-substitute spreads, soy chips, soy cheese, tofu burgers, and more. You may even be eating soy without realising it, as these days soy is in at least 60% of processed and packaged foods, including soy flours in most breads and even in canned tuna! Dr. Kaayla Daniels, author of “The Whole Soy Story”, did an interview on soy for The Healthy Life Summit, and we at Primal Health have summed up all the important bits for you right here…
Calcium intake is one of the most common nutritional concerns for women and children in the western world. Women, who have the highest rates of osteoporosis, are living on calcium supplements, and families think of milk and dairy products as essential for their children’s health. Yet dairy is not a common food in much of the world. Think of the several billion people on this earth who have never seen milk. Would you be surprised to hear that they have far less osteoporosis and arthritis than is seen in countries where dairy products are regularly consumed? While hardly heard of in other countries, osteoporosis is very common in North America, Australia and Europe, where dairy consumption is very high.

In the debate on organic food, many people consider price and nutritional benefits. If you have decided that organic food is too expensive, consider how much you are willing to spend on a glass of wine, a trip to the cinema, a pair of jeans, a nice car…yet the very thing that gives you life – your food – has to be cheap or on special for you to buy it.
Walking down the aisle of the supermarket (yes, I go in occasionally for toilet paper and raw cheese), it’s easy to see why everyone is confused about what to eat. In every aisle, for almost every type of product, there are dozens of choices and each one claims to be healthier than the next. Hmmm, this one is low-fat and all-natural, but this one is sugar-free with added bran.
For more than 30 years, the low-fat diet has become the norm in...
The ‘Isacc Newton’ of Nutrition. An American Dentist is the 1920 – 30’s who was perplexed by the growing increase in ‘dental deformities’ and health problems of his patients. Due to the discoveries at the time of isolated populations around the world with perfect teeth, Dr. Weston Price embarked on a 10 year journey to study 11 isolated groups of people in their natural environment to discover why their teeth and health were better than Americans with dentistry and modern conveniences and what foods they were eating to cause such perfect teeth. This amazing book is his journey. We at Primal Health consider this our bible of nutrition.
