In the media of late there has been a number of articles published that I just have to share with you. There is so much information hitting the media on healthy eating, low carbohydrate diets, Ketosis, no sugar, low sugar, reduced sugar and new food products that I want to keep you up to date. To do this I’m going to start to post links to the latest information and articles that I think may be of interest to expand your knowledge.
It doesn’t matter what country you live in, the articles related to studies on health apply to us all. The information you learn about healthy eating provides knowledge and motivation to improve your own health, but will also provide knowledge to teach your children and help gift them with lifelong health and education on the correct food choices. The choices we make as parents for our own health influences our children and how they teach their children.
Here are a list of articles definately worth the read. I’ll be building this list over the coming months. I encourage you to look further into topics that you find most interesting or in my case disturbing as some of the articles listed below will challenge your thinking as the new research often conflicts with what we have been told about food and nutrition to date.
Today we talk about a very disturbing event that happened this week. It’s one that kept me up at night and is a topic that we have talked about before on Food Facts For Healthy Eating and one that is now a common topic in the media, Plastic Waste and the impact it’s having on our environment. For those of you that missed this event this week please see the link below –
In previous posts we have talked about Household Food and Packaging waste. I can tell you seeing this magnificent animal and how it suffered really made me think again about how I can reduce the amount of plastic waste brought into my home.
Coles and Woolworths, our two major supermarket chains here in Australia are working hard to remove and reduce plastic in their stores. Woolworths here in Australia are not only removing plastic bags from their stores nationally on the 20th of June 2018 in NSW but have also taken the next step by stopping the sale of certain single use plastic items such as straws and excess packaging on a number of fruit and vegetable products by the end of 2018. This move is in response to the growing consumer concern over plastic waste polution in our environment, please see the article below.
In Denmark one Supermarket is pushing new boundary’s by removing all plastic in one aisle of their supermarket, replacing plastic packaging with new packaging technology using sustainable and biodegradable packaging materials. As technology grows in this area, let’s hope we see other global Supermarket giants carrying this through to their own stores.
It’s fantastic to see these changes coming through as a result of consumer demand. Consumers globally are finally acknowledging the impact plastic has on our environment and the colossal global disaster we are now facing if we don’t get this under control. Join the movement and think about how to reduce plastic in your own home and in your daily lives.
Hope you Enjoyed!!
