Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables

Just because your fruit and veg aren’t perfect looking doesn’t mean they can’t be delicious. We just read that Loblaws is going to start selling imperfect & misshapen apples and potatoes at a discount to help curb food waste. While we wish they’d expand it to other fruits and veg, it’s a start. It reminded me of a small video about a grocer in France doing a similar thing. More stores should do it. (link)

This Video Will Change Your Diet

I’ll admit it, Nat is the driving force of our diet. She wanted to eat healthier so we buy more vegetables and since she used to be a vegetarian, we don’t buy a lot of meat. I’m not saying I used eat unhealthy, I just didn’t eat as much of vegetables as I should.

Having seen this video and hearing Dr. Terry Wahls talk about how much changing her diet helped her with her MS, I’m now a changed man. She had trouble walking at one point and was afraid of becoming bed-ridden. She researched and edited her diet and is now back to being very functional. TED talks are amazing. (link)
