What’s in Our Fridge, Freezer, Pantry and Fruit Bowl

Sunday morning means our shopping trip to the farmer’s market for samples, socializing, snacks on the grass, and most importantly, stocking up our fridge. The farmer’s market is our supermarket, and Sunday mornings is our main weekly shop, with top-ups through the week from our organic food delivery, wholesale butcher, plus bits and pieces at the grocery store. Sunday at lunchtime, our kitchen is full of fresh food and is a good time to show you what food we buy and stock regularly. It’s also a great time to be invited to our house for lunch! Of course, this is a snapshot of our kitchen on one particular summer Sunday and our grocery items change regularly with the seasons, our changing tastes and needs, and as we discover new wonderful whole foods that we hadn’t tried before. You and your family are bound to have some different tastes and preferences, dietary needs, and nutritional requirements. Therefore, I hope you can use our example, not as something to copy exactly, but as a GUIDE for your own home.

QUALITY of the food listed below:

  • Animal meats are from pasture-fed, free-ranging, humanely-raised animals.

How Milk Became So Dangerous

The conflicting information is driving us all mad!! On the one hand we hear: Milk Does a Body Good!. It’s essential for calcium requirements, Vitamin D, strong bones and healthy children. On the other hand we hear: Milk causes mucus. It leads to lactose intolerance and ear infections. It’s too fatty. It contains Bovine Growth Hormone. Our societal response to this confusion is low-fat milk, skim milk, no-fat milk, soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, oat milk, organic milk, BGH-free milk, no milk. Just more confusion. So what’s gone wrong and where do we go from here?

According to the WHO stats, the Japanese are some of the longest living people in the world. But a long life doesn’t necessarily mean a healthy one.

Here’s what we found when we lived in and visited Japan and analysed their diet and lifestyle…
