It's equivalent to watching a Peta video on youtube!
Overall, I learned that we consume a lot of foods that we don't fully understand. haha
I come to realize that I never think of where my meat comes from...or how animals are raised for the sole purpose of being eaten. It's sad to think about these poor animals getting slaughtered. They talked about how most animals sense fear when they know another of their kind is being harmed, or ..murdered. They get scared just like we do. It's makes me want to cry reading the meat chapter. =/
I don't want to get too much into it...but did you know that eating fast makes you fart more?! haha cause you swallow a lot air when you eat fast. (or so they say).
My most memorable fact I learned is that fruit is the best breakfast food. Fruit should be eaten alone, and given 10 minutes to digest before eating something else (such as another piece of fruit). Did you know that? They say that way, you benefit the most from the fruit.
Anyhow, I've been craving fresh squeezed orange juice. (I feel a cold coming on) :/
Jamba Juice is so conveniently located a few miles from my house :) Growing up in Michigan..the closest Jamba Juice was in Chicago, Illinois! Can you believe that?
I don't mind paying $3-$4 for 12oz of fresh orange juice. : ) It sure is a lot cheaper than buying my own oranges and struggling to juice them! Sticky mess, no no!
So yeah...I bought myself a bag of organic apples from Safeway tonight. LOL, Minh got home around 8pm and we decided to go grocery shopping for food. :)
$3.99 for a bag of 8 organic apples.. not too bad.
For some reason, I feel like I read something negative about eating organic fruits. sighh
This world is full of controversy! But I know that I'm going to eat more veggies and fruits, and cut back on red meat!
Good night :)
