  1. Hi there! I was looking at Sambazon Acaí puree smoothie packs online. Organic, Fair Trade, no added sugar. Being the ingredient-reading Nazi that I have become, of course I was thrown when they mentioned that it contained "less than 0.5% of soy lecithin." For the purposes of the Whole30, perhaps this is just a no-brainer. Small percentage or large, if it's listed at all, it's out this month. But I'm just curious how wary one should be of these teeny percentages of not-so-good stuff... and why would something "organic" contain them? What purpose does that 0.5% serve, if any? You should know: I'm totally of the understanding that smoothies are not the ideal way to get your fruits, and 90% of the time I'm gobbling down the actual fruit instead. But, I was interested in making homemade, Whole30 compliant acaí bowls - a healthy treat that I look forward to in warmer weather, in which the "smoothie" is just part of the whole. And, I'm on Day 13 of my Whole30, and totally loving it!
  2. After 18 years of eating no meat, other than occasional seafood, I recently found myself devouring chicken. It was so tasty, and it felt right to eat it. Until I read an article from a meat farmer posted on Mark's Daily Apple about how misleading meat food labels are. The Trader Joe's organic free-range chicken I'd been buying turned out to be no more humane than standard CAFO chicken. The article mentions that you need to find "pastured" chicken. So fine, I can try to find that obscure term in an obscure store. But the whole thing just kind of pi$$ed me off, to be frank. I'm spending the money and time to find quality meat raised in a humane way, and meanwhile food manufacturers are sitting around trying to find loopholes on how to trick us into thinking their food fits this criteria. Makes me want to go on a hunger strike. But then my tummy rumbles and I go searching for something to eat that isn't going to totally destroy the planet. Arrggg. Now I'm left debating if I should go back to trying to find pastured chicken for my Whole30, since eggs and seafood probably won't cut it. Then go back to no chicken after the Whole30. Any thoughts? Can anyone relate?
