There is one Canadian made holistic pet food that I am aware of. Orijen is made in Alberta with Canadian grown meat and fish, grains and produce. If Orijen was sold at my local Pet Valu, I’d be buying it!
Most of You Must Avoid White Starchy Foods us have accumulated POUNDS of red meat, fat, toxins and contaminates in the first 30-40 years of life and expect to have that problem resolved in healthy tips 2-3 or 4 weeks. NOT going to happen! Our foods contain only a portion of the nutrients and vitamins our parents enjoyed and the 2nd hand food machinery removes even more.

Even when your body is at rest, it still requires energy to fuel your organs, your breathing, and blood circulation. Digestion and food cake – food absorption, transportation, and storage – accounts for 10 percent of your energy used daily. Daily physical activities can also burn energy. Just climbing the stairs for one minute burns 8.4cals, an hour of babysitting uses 222cals, an hour of thinking consumes 110cals, and cooking and preparing meals spends 80cals.
Don’t feel bad if the price of your much loved soda becomes more expensive. Instead, thank the government for the added tax because this means they care for your health. Even support them in promoting their “no to sugar” campaign to food packing corporations.

If you do like a parsnip, beet, carrot, and turn it into this little skinny pasta — I’ve done this at shows and little kids have walked by and I’ve got it on the table next to the machine to show what it does, and these little three year olds will grab it and eat it. The mother or the grandmother will go, “I can’t believe it, he won’t eat any vegetables!” Something about cutting that vegetable into facets, let’s say, really brings out the sweetness like no grating or slicing ever could.
