What's up fellow Eat Right For Your Typers? I have been eating since thanksgiving. Trying to lay of the carbohydrates and starches... Just doin' some Lundberg Farm's Rice cakes, and Ezekiel sprouted Grain Tortillas now and then. The staple of my diet has been exactly what it should be. Steamed vegetables. Yum. It's a torrid love affair. Broccoli, leeks, purple kale, carrots, celery, green-red-white-red-yellow onions, you name it, I'll steam it and eat it... So long as it isn't an avoid... I've been baking a lot of squash lately as well. Butternut, acorn, and Heart of Gold, being my favorites... I tried a spaghetti squash recently... It was ok, but I prefer others.... Steam up some veggies, and drizzle some beneficial oil over them to improve digestibility, assimilation, and taste! Olive, sesame, cod liver, whatever suits yer fancy.... Same goes with the squash. A little oil and your favorite compliant seasonings go a long way. Try wrapping the vegetables or squash in one of the tortillas mentioned above. Some ghee, sea salt, garlic, and cumin make a delicious burrito.
Something I have to rant about... Holiday lights. I encourage you to check out the holiday lights on store shelves this year... Look at the back of the box. You're bound to see a big ol' warning, informing you that handling the lights exposes you to LEAD! WTF!!?? Lead? Holiday lights? What's next? Mercury chews for Halloween? How many years have all of us been stringing these up on our houses and trees? How many years have we been doing it, never even knowing the carcinogenic toxin that we were inhaling and coating our hands with? I encourgae all of you that handle holiday lights to wear gloves when doing so, and wear a breathing mask if you can. Make SURE you wash the hell out of your hands afterward as well. Leave them alone when they're up, and follow the aforementioned precautions when taking them down. I have yet to find a brand that does not expose you to an undisclosed amount of lead. Hence, you can be 99% sure it's on yours. Stay cool this holiday season gang... Err... Stay warm, that is....
That said, all we have to do now is drill Alaska, allow corporations to regulate their own emissions standards, exponentially increase logging while ignoring quickly growing, renewable sources, like hemp and kenaf, continue to drug our children and ourselves, outlaw nuetraceuticals, and, we can watch the whole thing go down on television while we eat genetically modified food that isn't required to be labeled as such. What the Hell, while were at it, pass me a cigarette... Pathetic. What's more?? After everything has gone to Hell in a hand basket, we'll just re-write history, amend the textbooks, and revamp the constitution. There. See! All better! Now our children won't even be able to read about/remember what things were like before we screwed it all up! Cuz, it was always like this, right? RIGHT!?
I don't mean to depress or be cynical. This is just a wake up call. If you're too lazy to make your voice heard by making a phone call, writing a letter, sending an e-mail, boycotting brands/companies/corporations that are "evil", protesting what you believe to be wrong, and keep yourself informed... Well... Then... You essentially asked for all of this. Best wishes to you all. Keep your collective heads held high.
