a couple of unrelated questions


Recommended Posts

So I have been chugging along since April 7th and doing fine overall. Feel good, energy back, pants loose!

I purchased Ghee-never knew it existed but want to know if it needs to be refridgerated after opening. I have been using coconut oil for cooking mostly. Whe would you use ghee instead-when you wan t a butter flavor?

At heart, I am a vegetarian but my body appreciates animal protien so I give myself that. How do you guys resolve a love of animals/mother earth and the strain carbon places on the earth from all the gasses from livestock? Or is that crap research?

I look for grass fed etc but truely cannot afford it as we have a single income household-it makes me sick to know where our food comes from. I try to be animal/earth supportive in all other ways so maybe it is a wash.

As I reach my goal weight and ramp up training for fall races-would it be best to add an extra piece of fruit, a few more nuts to the plan. I may add a more compliant Larabar to the mix as well-tell me again which ones are the best? Was it banana or something else. Can't seem to pull up every detail of ingredients(not teck savy)

Thanks all!

Quick answers:

 

Way to go with your success! Ghee does not need to be refrigerated. Animal protein can be farmed sustainably - in fact, herding animals (cows) can play a really important role in carbon sequestration if they are left to graze in a certain manner. Taking a flight across country is probably a bigger problem than eating meat daily. That said, we have a long ways to go before our country is raising farm animals in a way that is good for our planet. I'll let more experienced athletes chime in on your last question - but my gut says starchy veggies (sweet potato, squash, plaintain) is probably a better addition to your diet than fruit and nuts. As far as larabars, check the ingredients. I like the cherry pie and apple pie bars.

 

Cheers!

Stay away from the Uberbars...those have sugar. Otherwise, all the original ones I've seen are compliant except for the peanut/choc chips. I love the coconut cream pie and key lime pie. Which is why I can't buy them anymore.  :)

I wish I could take everyone on a tour of Cherith Farms, the place where I buy chicken, eggs, rabbits, lamb, and vegetables. You can really see the synergistic relationship between the animals and the row crops. The sheep eat turnip greens and tough, old kale that people don't want. Rabbit poop fertilizes the vegetables. The chickens eat a lot of vegetable trimmings and waste and get their protein from bugs, worms, etc.
