Ep 7 – Cat Health: Easy Homemade Raw Cat Food

**Apologies, but due to my current schedule, I am unable to personally reply to comments.**

Many cat owners have heard the benefits of raw food feeding, but are confused as to how to get started. Some try it on their own, unaware that they may be missing some vital ingredients necessary for cat health and others have found recipes in books or on the internet but feel overwhelmed by the whole process. There are some boutique stores and companies that specialize in nutritionally balanced raw food meals which can be purchased frozen, however these can be quite costly.

The easiest way to step into the homemade raw food arena and still provide a nutritionally balanced raw food diet is through the use of kits or pre-mixes. Several companies make these kits and they generally only require the addition of raw meat and water. In this episode of Cat Chat, Arloa uses one of these raw food kits to demonstrate how easy it can be to feed your cat a nutritionally complete raw food diet.

Raw feeding is a personal decision and is not for everyone. While Arloa strongly believes it is the healthiest diet for her cats, she encourages her viewers to do their own research and perhaps speak with a pet nutritionist or holistic animal practitioner, as they have spent much of their careers devoted to nutritional research.

The kit I used is the Raw Made Easy Kit I which can be ordered from http://www.felinespride.com

Relationship Between Gut Microbiome and Allergies AND Antidepressants Pregnancy and Risk of Autism

People with allergies have different gut bacteria than people without allergies – more pathogenic bacteria and less bacterial diversity.

And a new study shows that children whose moms take antidepressants during pregnancy have a significantly higher risk of being diagnosed with autism than those whose moms did not take the drugs. Another reasons to STOP taking these drugs!

The Truth About Eating Superfoods for Weight-Loss

There are many claims that certain “superfoods” will help you lose weight. But, is it worth changing your diet to include those foods, or is there a better approach to healthy eating that will give you the results you’re looking for?

The “Lose 10 in 4″ Podcast is all about answering YOUR weight-loss questions. Dave Smith, Canada’s Top Fitness Professional, is here to help you get results. Contact Dave by visiting http://www.makeyourbodywork.com – Your question could be featured on the next episode!

Here’s our question for today:

Melissa says,

“I keep hearing about all this super foods that are supposed to be really good for losing fat. I just read one article that suggest sardines, tarragon and red lentils. I don’t eat any of those. I don’t even know what tarragon is. How important is it for me to eat these foods?”

Thanks for your question, Melissa. And to give you a short answer, the short answer is “it’s not important that you eat any particular food for losing weight”.

Some foods do help our bodies’ metabolism to speed up. For example if you eat a lot of citrus fruit that are high in vitamin C. Vitamin C does help metabolize fat faster still might be some benefits there. However, the benefit that you get from eating these foods or any other “super foods” is so small that it’s not worth focusing on.

And when you think about eating a variety of foods, in general, well actually had a really interesting place in history. Compared to any time of previous generations, we have more access to more foods than anyone ever before.

For example, I remember my Mom telling me that when she was a kid she remembers going the entire winter season without eating a salad. And I just sort of blew my mind because we have salad every single day. But the availability of salad back then during the off season wasn’t nearly what it is today. She said, salad you know, lettuce or spinach would cost a fortune in the grocery stores they just wouldn’t eat it.

So if you think about previous generations, having a much more limited access to certain foods and they’re still able to be very healthy, they’re still able to thrive and actually suffered much less from obesity than we do today.

It seems pretty obvious that eating a huge variety of foods or eating some of these “super foods” isn’t the key to weight loss. In fact, I will take that a step further and say that it’s not food variety that leads to weight loss but it might actually be food monotony that leads to weight loss.

By food monotony, I just mean eating a smaller subset of meals or smaller subset of foods. So repeating some of our favorite meals over and over again as opposed to forcing ourselves to find ways to include all these super foods are gonna be huge variety of foods included in our meals every single day. And there’s three reasons I’d like to suggest why moving towards food monotony might actually be better for weight loss.

The first one is that when we repeat our meals or eat meals and foods that we are very familiar with, we start to learn what’s actually in our meals.

There’s an interesting research study then where they had people go into the restaurant and the waiters and waitresses would bring out all sorts of food and then they would ask the patrons or the customers at the restaurant to pick out what was an appropriate portion size for each of the different foods. And as you might imagine the people that were picking out the portion size grossly over estimated how much food they should be eating to get that appropriate portion.

Many of these foods or these meals were not familiar to them so when they had to rely on their instinct they actually over estimated by 20%. And that’s a lot of extra calories.

The same goes for you and I, if we’re trying to incorporate new foods or new meals or new recipes into our life on a daily basis, there’s a much higher chance that we’re gonna over eat. And we’re gonna taking in a whole lot more calories than what we actually should. Contrast that with a little bit more food monotony where we’re eating meals that we’re very familiar with and it’s much easier to get a good idea of how much we’re actually we need to eat, how many calories we’re getting and what sort of nutrients were coming with that meal.

The second reason that I propose food monotony is actually really good for weight loss is the fact that it takes much less time. If I give you a list, you probably seen them before on magazines 20 super foods you need to include in your diet and told you to go and make recipes that include all 20 of those super foods there’ll be a whole lot of time spent in researching, shopping for ingredients and actually preparing those meals.

What is Biodynamic Agriculture & Demeter Certification?

High Quality Organics, http://www.HQOrganics.com is the largest North American provider of wholesale bulk certified organic non-GMO herbs and spices, botanicals, grains, dehydrated fruits and vegetables, teas and more. Our services include custom cuts and blends, flavor formulation, organic transition, new product development and custom packaging, to name a few. We serve industrial, food service and retail clients, from family owned businesses to international corporations.

In this video we help to celebrate Earth Day by explaining what is biodynamic agriculture and the Demeter certification.

Every year around Earth Day I like share some information on an environmental topic.

In the past I’ve talked about what certified organic means (https://www.hqorganics.com/videogallery/what-does-organic-mean/) and I’ve showed how biodiversity is in action on a nutmeg plantation in India (https://www.hqorganics.com/videogallery/what-is-biodiversity/).

Last year I had a lot of fund explaining how easy it is to start composting (composting in your back yard” with this:https://www.hqorganics.com/videogallery/earth-day-4-tips-for-a-successful-compost/) in your back yard or even under your kitchen sink! (https://www.hqorganics.com/videogallery/earth-day-4-different-composting-methods/)

I hope you’ve found these videos helpful. Or, if you haven’t seen them, I encourage you to watch them.

This year, I’m so excited to share some information on the term biodynamic and Demeter Certified, one of the oldest environmental certifications in the world (http://www.demeter-usa.org).

First, let’s talk about what it means to be biodynamic. I like to explain biodynamic as an organic farming practice that uses integrated and self-sustaining farming practices throughout the entire farm.

A biodynamic farm not only uses organic practices but also incorporates other sustainable methods into their farm such as composting, water conservation, setting aside at least 10% of the farm for biodiversity and applying special blends of compost, herbs and minerals to their crops at specific times of the year.

For a farmer to market their farm or products as biodynamic, they must be certified by an organization called Demeter. Demeter is a European-based organization that has been around since 1928 and is actually one of the most recognized brands in Europe today.

Demeter USA was created in 1985 with a mission “To heal the planet through agriculture.”The entire focus of biodynamic farming is to create the healthiest, most sustainable farms possible. Through this, it is believed we can create the healthiest food to nourish people in the most nutritious way possible.

Demeter is starting to gain momentum in the U.S. The wine industry has been one of the first adopters of the practice but there are many other farms practicing biodynamic agriculture as well. If you shop at Whole Foods, you might have seen some products with the certification.

I hope this video gave you some insight on what sometimes can be a complicated topic. If you have questions about biodynamic or organic agriculture, please let us know. We love hearing from our viewers and always appreciate the time you take to watch our videos. www.HQOrganics.com

Happy Earth Day!

This is a green juice I make as a Type 1 Diabetic almost every day for breakfast. It’s healthy, it’s fresh, tasty and full of vitamins and minerals… a bomb of nutritional awesomeness! It has very little affect on my blood sugar and is outbalanced perfectly by my long acting insulin after my morning workout.

This green juice makes me quite satisfied for a long time and is a perfect start on my days in my diabetes life!

It’s such a healthy green juice because it contains:

Spinach: Extremely high nutritional value and is rich in antioxidants. Good source of vitamins A, B2, C and K, and also contains magnesium, manganese, folate, iron, calcium and potassium.

Parsley: High amounts of Vitamin K, A, C, Folate, Iron and Magnesium. Helps to lower blood sugar levels.

Celery: Its nutrients can prevent Type 2 Diabetes. High in Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, Potassium and Manganese.

Lemon: Good source of Folate and Potassium, and a very good source of Vitamin C. Lemon juice helps Type 1 Diabetics to lower blood sugar and increase insulin sensitivity and it’s also a great weight loss remedy.

Ginger: Breaks down glycogen so it decreases blood sugar. Good source of Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Cucumber: Good source of Vitamin A, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium.

Apple: Contains soluble fiber which makes them release sugar into the blood stream more slowly, giving you a smoother glucose blood sugar curve. Good amounts of dietary fiber and vitamin C.

Avocado: Healthy fats, may improve insulin sensitivity and improves heart health. Lots of fiber to counter carbs and helps the body absorb nutrients better. Full of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Folate.
