Peace + Food = Peacefood



In dem dreiteiligen Talk mit Dr. Ruediger Dahlke, dem wohl bekanntesten Experten zum Thema ganzheitliche Gesundheit, geht es um Essen für den Frieden: Ohne Fleisch und ohne tierische Produkte. In seinem Buch „Peace Food” plädiert der Arzt und Psychotherapeut für eine vegane Ernährung und schildert, warum Milch keineswegs so gesund zu sein scheint, wie oft behauptet. Sogar Bill Clinton ernährt sich seit einiger Zeit vegan, seit er die „China Study” gelesen hat. Darüber hinaus aber erspart verminderter Fleischkonsum unzähliges Leid bei den Tieren: 98 aller Tiere, die später verzehrt werden, haben nie ein natürliches Leben unter freiem Himmel erlebt.

Glencore – Commodities speculation has a very human cost.


Commodities speculation has a very human cost.

This video was produced for the documentary series HungryBeast on Australia’s ABC1.

97% owned present serious research and verifiable evidence on our economic and financial system. This is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective and explains the inner workings of Central Banks and the Money creation process.

When money drives almost all activity on the planet, it’s essential that we understand it. Yet simple questions often get overlooked, questions like; where does money come from? Who creates it? Who decides how it gets used? And what does this mean for the millions of ordinary people who suffer when the monetary, and financial system, breaks down?

Apple Tree – McDonalds?

Well, it looks much better to show a tree than a slaughterhouse…

I’m not loving it! What about you?

Via IndiaInk:

The announcement by McDonald’s on Tuesday that it would open a few vegetarian-only restaurants in India next year marks the fast-food chain’s latest attempt to appeal to consumers in an unlikely market.

The fast-food chain has been on a nearly two-decade slog in India, one marked by both controversy and success. On Tuesday, the company said it planned to open vegetarian outlets near the Golden Temple in Amritsar and a Hindu shrine in Jammu and Kashmir.

Strange Fruit

© by Stefan{at}MyTree.CH 2011

Aren’t we all strange fruits?
Please tell me! Hey dudes!
Sometimes we just think that we are
something unique – something rare

so we think that what we plant
and what we grow
is our personal LIFE-show
but we don’t understand

even each other
the child doesn’t understand his mother
the mother doesn’t understand her father
but why should we butter?

This is the way it is
and it will stay this way
as long as we don’t find peace
in ourself. OK?

But to find peace
we should be able
to built a virtual tower of babel
and we should know what respect is

we shall stop the self-imposing
’cause in fact we are not much more
than absolutely NOTHING!
so why is life a bore

for so many fruits out there?
’cause they tend to forget at all
that sooner or later every fruit will fall!
Shouldn’t we take a little bit more care

for the people who are in need?
I mean a full bank-account
can’t be a seed!
We are all far too much bound

to materialistic concepts
and in this context
what will be next?
We can forget each and any text

if there is no-one to read it!
There is a spaceship called EARTH
and we need to feed it
and treat it like a nurse

is treating her patient
with caring LOVE
Like the one form the guy above
otherwise my friend,
this is just the beginning

Allium sativum!

Allium sativum, commonly known as garlic, is a species in the onion family Alliaceae. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, chive,[1] and rakkyo.[2] Garlic has been used throughout history for both culinary and medicinal purposes. The garlic plant’s bulb is the most commonly used part of the plant. With the exception of the single clove types, the bulb is divided into numerous fleshy sections called cloves. The cloves are used for consumption (raw or cooked), or for medicinal purposes, and have a characteristic pungent, spicy flavor that mellows and sweetens considerably with cooking.[3] The leaves, and flowers (bulbils) on the head (spathe) are also edible, and being milder in flavor than the bulbs,[2] they are most often consumed while immature and still tender. Additionally, the immature flower stalks (scapes) of the hardneck and elephant types are sometimes marketed for uses similar to asparagus in stir-fries.[4] The papery, protective layers of “skin” over various parts of the plant are generally discarded during preparation for most culinary uses, though in Korea immature whole heads are sometimes prepared with the tender skins intact.[5] The root cluster attached to the basal plate of the bulb is the only part not typically considered palatable in any form. The sticky juice within the bulb cloves is used as an adhesive in mending glass and china.[2]

Big apple goes organic!


Alberto González is a trendsetter. Two years ago, he opened New York City’s very first fully USDA-certified organic restaurant, GustOrganics. Despite the depressed economy, it is booming—and has now given González the opportunity to bring a fully certified organic menu someplace else it’s never been: to food carts on the streets of Manhattan.

“Our cart is the first USDA-certified organic street cart ever,” González told Organic Connections. “We are very proud.”

González called the cart—operated by his new company Organic Carts NYC—a prototype simply because it was a test to see if something like this would fly with on-the-go New Yorkers. But the prototype, currently found at Fifty-Third Street and Park Avenue, has done so well that he is now planning the immediate launch of two more carts.

“We’ve been sold out every single day since we’ve been there,” González said. “We have been increasing the food quantity of the cart by 20 or 30 percent, and we’re still selling out.”

Like its parent restaurant, the organic cart has a very tasty menu. “We’re serving salads and soups—we have a soup of the day and a salad of the day,” González related. “We serve the same empanadas that we serve in the restaurant; we also serve what we call tapitos, basically a wrap containing filet mignon strips grilled with vegetables, on a bed of greens, and much more besides.”

Lunch at the cart is not expensive. You can eat a meal there for under $10, tax included.

Because of González’s stress on maintaining a sustainable operation, no bottled drinks are served from the cart. In fact, organic juices are freshly squeezed from fruit right on the spot and served in biocompostable cups. “You can stop and have a freshly squeezed organic orange juice right in the middle of Manhattan,” said González. “We also have our homemade lemonade, which is very popular, brewed iced tea and more.”

Consistently named as one of the most pesticide-contaminated fruits and vegetables, apples make my list because they are more popular than the other fruits and vegetables on the list. Thus, choosing organic apples can make a big difference both in lowering your family’s pesticide exposure and in using our consumer power to change agriculture.

Got Milk?

Got milk? Plenty of people think its perfectly healthy to drink, and advertisements would have you eating dairy all the time. But it may not be as healthy as you think. In this weeks UltraWellness blog Dr. Mark Hyman gives six reasons you should avoid milk and explains why it may be at the very root of your health problems.
Dr. Hyman is a smart guy, though we don’t agree 100% with his recommendations (e.g., we don’t recommend any seafoods or other animal products as a source of calcium or anything else).
