Feeling the Sting: What Can Be Done to Protect Pollinators

Last spring, BFI released a pilot for Just Food, a new 6-part podcast series about cultivating justice and health. We are excited to announce the launch of the remaining episodes this fall, starting with today’s release of “Feeling the Sting.” In this episode, we hear from California farmers and UC Berkeley conservation biologist Claire Kremen about the significance of pollinators in our food system and what can be done to protect them.

Listen to the episode here.

We also invite you to attend our Just Food launch event on October 3, 2017, from 5–7 PM. More details below under BFI Events.

Meetup Event :How to Decode the Food Labels

Please join us for our next Meetup on how to prevent diabetes by eating correctly and by educating yourself about the package food ingredients. This will be very useful for us to know how does the information on food label map to our calories and nutritional value;  especially in the time when grocery store aisles are flooded with food like substance full of chemicals, sugar and synthetic materials.

You should join me at this Meetup. Check it out and RSVP! http://meetu.ps/3cpcQ8

Food Rules & What is “Real Food”

Here is the link to a very interesting article by Food journalist, Michael Pollan on what are the rules of eating and what is real food:

http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/news/20090323/7-rules-for-eating#1

Some of the summary points are listed here:

7 Words & 7 Rules for Eating

Pollan says everything he’s learned about food and health can be summed up in seven words: “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”

Probably the first two words are most important. “Eat food” means to eat real food — vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and, yes, fish and meat — and to avoid what Pollan calls “edible food-like substances.”

Here’s how:

  1. Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. “When you pick up that box of portable yogurt tubes, or eat something with 15 ingredients you can’t pronounce, ask yourself, “What are those things doing there?” Pollan says.
  2. Don’t eat anything with more than five ingredients, or ingredients you can’t pronounce.
  3. Stay out of the middle of the supermarket; shop on the perimeter of the store. Real food tends to be on the outer edge of the store near the loading docks, where it can be replaced with fresh foods when it goes bad.
  4. Don’t eat anything that won’t eventually rot. “There are exceptions — honey — but as a rule, things like Twinkies that never go bad aren’t food,” Pollan says.
  5. It is not just what you eat but how you eat. “Always leave the table a littlehungry,” Pollan says. “Many cultures have rules that you stop eating before you are full. In Japan, they say eat until you are four-fifths full. Islamic culture has a similar rule, and in German culture they say, ‘Tie off the sack before it’s full.'”
  6. Families traditionally ate together, around a table and not a TV, at regular meal times. It’s a good tradition. Enjoy meals with the people you love. “Remember when eating between meals felt wrong?” Pollan asks.
  7. Don’t buy food where you buy your gasoline. In the U.S., 20% of food is eaten in the car.
