Eat Real Food, NOT Cheerios! March 5, 2014
So Multi-Grain Cheerios has a new campaign which is a great idea. This is the main idea behind it: “Take the Never Say Dieting Oath and let’s make the next generation healthy – mind, body, and spirit.” Love this idea! You can read more about it here.
BUT…BUT… Their “balanced approach” to healthier eating is going to hurt rather than heal. 2 of their 5 points we take an issue with:
1. Each day, make at least half of your grain products whole grain
WHAT?!?! Watch a little video here, in case you have forgotten about grains, and as to why encouraging grains is a bad, bad idea. Please, do your own research about grains, read books, search on the internet and inspect the scientific evidence against grains. It is there!
2. Choose lower fat milk and lean meats (or their alternatives) prepared with little or no added fat.
It is 2014 people!! More and more studies have proven that we actually need fats from real foods like meat.
Read here why low fat diets are hurtful rather than harmful.
Sorry Cheerios, love the campaign, but your “healthy” eating approach and your product filled with GM ingredients, sugars, starch, food colouring, miscellaneous chemicals and fake vitamins leaves A LOT to be desired.
Feed our future generations REAL food and they will undoubtedly be healthier in mind, body and spirit.

Did you know this about MSG? September 10, 2013
We have all heard of MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) and usually relate it to Chinese food but did you know it exits in many other common packed foods? (One more reason to say no to processed foods!) It’s main use is to enhance flavour and trick the brain into thinking you are still hungry when you are full as well as creating an addiction for the food. Possibly why we crave chips, cookies and Kraft dinner when they actually don’t taste that great or satisfy us. Contributing factor to obesity and heart disease amongst other things? Highly likely!
If you still buy packaged foods then be aware that MSG can be hidden in foods under the following names so label check EVERYTHING!
Hydrolyzed vegetable protein
Textured whey protein
Textured vegetable protein
Tydrolyzed yeast extract
Textured soy protein
Autolyzed yeast extract,
Autolyzed vegetable protein
MSG may exhibit an allergic-type reaction or hypersensitivity. For those people, the effects of consuming food containing MSG may include: a burning sensation, facial pressure, headache, nausea and chest pains appearing about 20 minutes after consumption and disappearing about two hours later.
