LuckyVitamin-MissionStatement

This on-line store has so much to offer!  Everything from vitamins & nutritional supplements and personal care & beauty to food & snacks and sports nutrition.  I love what they stand for and the prices seem reasonably comparative to me.  The products I have purchased are great quality.

I recommend this site to you for your wellness goals!

Michael Pollan is the master of food, its origins and how we have gotten WAYYYY off track.  This book, written in 2014, takes food back to the basics of fire, water, earth and air.  It is well worth the read and discusses the elemental nature of food and why it connects to our souls and not just our mouths and stomachs.

 

Now, the exciting news…this book has just been made into a documentary, Cooked the documentary, showing now on Netflix.  I highly recommend it – so well done, engaging, enlightening and beautifully filmed.

Michael Pollan shares that both the book and documentary are an enlightening and compelling look at the evolution of what food means to us through the history of food preparation and its universal ability to connect us.

This is particularly about Cooked, however, if you don’t know Michael’s work, I would urge you to read the Omnivore’s Dilemma to understand the food industry and how it has helped shape the unhealthy eating patterns in our country and how we can push against them.

 

 

I am a firm believer that understanding is half the battle.  If we know how we got to this packaged, processed place, we can more easily get back to real food, together!

I love Skinny Pop Popcorn.  It is all the right things: Non-GMO, nothing artificial, no preservatives, et.al.  AND it tastes good.

I get a box of the small 100 calories bags at Costco but you can also get big bags at your local grocer.  It has just enough crunch to be a satisfying snack without being too salty (45 mg) or carby (9g).

 

 

If you like these, let me know and have a terrific weekend, brave ones!
