What will create the Tipping Point? GeoffLawton Online

Hi, this is Geoff,

Welcome to another weeks Friday Five! And a a subject thats dear to my hearttipping points.

Author of The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference, Malcolm Gladwell, who said one of his reasons for writing the book was to show people how to start positive epidemics of their own, found through his research that its not 51% that creates a tipping point. Surprisingly, its more like 12% to 18% of a population!

Sofor people across the globe, in all the different regions and countries, adopting regenerative practices, harmonious designed livingwhat will create the tipping point?

Is it

Policy change?: Dotted here and there (and this is bound to increase as time goes on) some local and regional governments, e.g. Los Angeles City Council, are implementing policy changes that make it easier for engineers, individuals and groups to do things like harvest rainwater, set up urban farms, and much more. For examples, such as the 2013 Rainwater Ordinance signed by the Director of Transport in Tucson, Arizona, scroll down the page on Brad Lancasters site.

Something out of the blue?: Long-time GMO activist and author Jeffrey Smith relates how in just four weeks in 1999, when a gag order was lifted on formerly pro-GMO scientist ...

Why Natural Remedies are Surprisingly More Effective

The development that modern medicine has taken in recent history has been leaps and bounds, if we look back at their organic predecessors. The effort to extend the threshold of medicine and develop newer and better drugs has been extraordinary. However, when we look at where we are and where we used to be, one

Woodcutting When the SHTF: What You Need to Know To Hastily Acquire a Wood Supply Ready Nutrition

ReadyNutrition Readers, this piece is designed to help you plan out your woodcutting when the SHTFbecause youll have to do it on the Q-T and keep your noise signature at a minimum.  Seems easy, right?  Well, its not complicated, but there are some finer points to it.  Right now (with half of my state of residence burning) we are not allowed to use chainsaws to cut wood.  Yep, Ive been hitting it with the bowsaw and the axeon low smoke days.

Bringing me to the next point.  You will need certain tools, to keep the noise down and also to conserve fuel.  Here they are:

  1. Bowsaw, 39-40 inch blade
  2. Bowsaw, 18-24 inch blade
  3. Axe, single-edged (I like anything made by Kobalt)
  4. Hatchet make sure it is one solid, continuous pieceEstwing makes some good ones
  5. Maul: Preferably 8-lbs or more
  6. Splitting Wedges assorted sizes
  7. Good Sharpening tool, and assorted sharpening stones

Your ax is going to be used to fell dead standing timber and also to segment large-diameter trees that would take forever with a bowsaw.  None of the methods are totally silent, however, in comparison to the chainsaw, they are.  This is a reason that I place so much emphasis on cutting wood in the off season: that is to say, dont wait until the fall.  Cut wood throughout the summer.

Heating is one thing, but cooking is another.  If you need to prepare food, youll need that fireplace or woodstove to be well-fueled.  When youre trimming branches, if theyre about four inches in diameter or less, use the short-bladed bowsaw.  The longer blade is used on your larger pieces, up to about a foot max.  Then it is up to you to quarter them with your ax, your maul, and your splitting wedges.

If you have a fireplace or a woodstove, you need to measure the diagonal inside length, knock it down a couple of inches, and form a template for yourself.  I use an old 1 x 4 piece for myself.  This way you can use that piece of board to set against the edge of your log and scribe to make a cut for the piece to fit in your fireplace or woodstove.  This will save you a lot of time measuring, and you can keep the template for a long timejust make sure it doesnt become mixed up in your wood supply.

After the SHTF, you can also bring pieces into your basement to saw and chop away at to reduce the noise.  You want to cut wood at times when there are other noises around to cover your activities...

Cooking with Palm Oil: Nutrient Rich & Delicious Whole Foods Magazine

This is the third post in a series uncovering Palm Oil what it is, where it comes from, how and where its used, the health benefits and the often-confusing controversy around the topic.  Given that its so prevalent in the supply chain, its important to understand the impact of palm oil in order to make informed choices, for the environment, for social justice, and for your health. Learn more about the positive benefits of sustainably sourced palm oil by visiting www.palmdoneright.com.    

Red Palm oil makes an excellent cooking oil for baking, sauting, dips and medium heat frying. Unrefined red palm oil is not only nutrient rich, its also delicious. A mild carrot-like flavor, with a rich, buttery texture makes unrefined red palm oil the perfect ingredient for many recipes including savory soups and stews, mixed with vegetables or nuts for roasting and for making light and flaky baked goods to name a few. The fatty acids in palm oil are very stable and are excellent for medium heat cooking temperatures.

Since the early 1950s, the food industry has moved away from animal based fats and oils which had been replaced by plant based sources including tropical oils and partially hydrogenated liquid oils like soy and canola. With rising concerns by the FDA of the harmful health effects of Trans-Fats from hydrogenated oils, palm oil stands out as the most functional and naturally occurring semi-solid alternative.

Nutritional Benefits

Red Palm Oil has both powerful nutritional and therapeutic properties. Its rich orange color reveals the presence of antioxidant vitamins A and E, in the forms of beta-carotene, rare tocotrienols and tocopherols of the vitamin E family.  Beta Carotene, which converts to Vitamin A in humans, provides color to vegetables and fruits such as carrots and tomatoes as well as red palm oil in much higher concentration. Red palm oil also contains at least ten other carotenes, and two forms of Vitamin E antioxidants, tocopherols and tocotrienols.

Using Red Palm Oil

As an ingredient, Red Palm brings an earthy, nutty taste and creamy texture to finished dishes. Natural Habitats uses a proprietary organic process to make red palm oil more stable, functional and palatable as an ingredient, while retaining all the incredible nutrients.

Unrefined Red Palm Oil is a viscous oil, with a consistency similar to softened butter. Alone, its terrific stirred into sauces as a flavor booster and thickener. Because of the stabilizing antioxidants, red palm takes well to moderate heat. For baking, opt for a Red Palm or Red Palm and Palm Fruit Oil based shortening. Red Palm can be used interchangeably or with coconut oil in the same quantities youd use for butter simply cream for longer and at a lower speed than you would for other oils or butter...

    • We have put out one episode every week for 270 weeks in a row!
    • This weeks episode is about Lady Gaga on her new Netflix special Gaga: Five Foot Two (Warning for boobs)
    • Gaga has had autoimmune diseases, Fibromyalgia that have affected her touring and health.
    • She could get up for her shows with the adrenaline rush, but her health was always declining.
    • She also said her thyroid medication was unrelated to her health issues (but its probably not!)
    • There have been rumors floating about concerning her maybe being paleo. She uses words that are adjacent to paleo without ever saying paleo.
    • (By the way, Sarah is totally like Lady Gaga.)
    • Sarah relates because she is also constantly derailed by lifestyle factors.
    • You need to keep up with health and activity and stress to keep yourself healthy! But we always convince ourselves they arent important! Diet is much easier than slowing yourself down.
    • Reaching for crutches (alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, other comforts) is often seen when your lifestyle isnt in order.
    • Its important to listen to your body throughout the day, not just on the highs where you feel great.
    • Sarah handles this by setting up rules for herself: she has a bedtime, she caters her dedicated exercise schedules to how shes feeling, and focuses on diet when her stress is high, and cuts back on activities she agrees to when shes stressed.
    • Putting out health issues is better for the public understanding of them. It reminds Stacy of Selena Gomez having a kidney transplant this summer. Use celebrities to talk health with your loved ones.

Slow Cooker Pear Butter Closet Cooking

Slow Cooker Pear Butter
Apple butter is essentially an apple sauce that has been reduced until it has the constancy of a butter in that it is spreadable with a knife and given how easy it is to make, it's one of my favourite fall treats. One day I was thinking that if you could make apple butter then why not pear butter? After trying it, finding out that not only did it work but it worked really well, it quickly became my new favourite! This pear butter is just as easy to make as the apple butter and you can make it in the slow cooker! You simply peel and core the pears, place them in the slow cooker with some sugar and spices and cook until tender, puree and then cook on high, uncovered, until the sauce reduces to the consistency of a butter or a spread. I like to add a hint of ginger in the form of fresh grated ginger to my pear butters but it is completely optional! No matter how you spread it, this slow cooker pear butter is an amazing way to enjoy some fall flavours!

Chocolate Frozen Yogurt Dr. William Davis

I took the super-duper thick yogurt that I made with added prebiotic fiber and made a really delicious and rich chocolate frozen yogurt.

Most store-bought yogurt, of course is the outdated and unhealthy low- or non-fat variety, often thickened with emulsifying agents to improve consistency, but damaging the mucous lining of your intestinal tract and encouraging dysbiosis, even if it contains probiotic microorganisms. We can make high-fat yogurt, prolong the fermentation process to further reduce lactose and denature the casein protein, and add a prebiotic fiber such as inulin to increase bacterial counts and increase butyrate content for intestinal and metabolic health. (Recall that butyrate is the microbial metabolite produced by healthy bowel flora microorganisms believed to be responsible for physiologic benefits in humans, such as decreased blood sugar and blood pressure, improved insulin responsiveness, reduced triglycerides, improved mood and reduced depression, deeper sleep, better bowel regularity and reduced risk for colon cancer. Butyrate is also found in large quantities in butter.) The result is a yogurt so rich and thick that it can stand up on a plate.

I therefore used this extra-thick yogurt to make frozen yogurt. The end result was wonderful, the best frozen yogurt Ive ever had. And, of course, it contained no added sugars and no emulsifiers.

I chose chocolate, but you can easily replace the cocoa powder with berries, other fruit, or add mint or instant coffee for other flavor variations.

The painfully simple recipe below uses 1 cup, so just multiply by the number of cups you want to make.

1 cup Wheat Belly Yogurt
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons Virtue Sweetener (or other sweetener equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar)

In bowl, combine yogurt, cocoa powder, and Virtue and mix thoroughly. Allow to set at least 1 hour in freezer.

Prevent and Treat Heartburn and Acid Reflux Natural Remedies

The most common digestive disorder people experience is heartburn, which is highly associated with acid reflux. Understanding how heartburn occurs is essential to those diagnosed with acid reflux. Eating habits or lifestyle factors should be changed to prevent heartburn associated with acid reflux. Unhealthy eating or eating excessively at one time can cause improper movement of the gastric juices in the lower portion of the esophagus, causing possible heartburn to occur.

Heartburn or acid reflux needs treatment, especially when a nighttime attack happens. Nigh time attacks have similar daytime attack symptoms except that nighttime attacks include snoring, restlessness, fatigue, and even abnormalities in breathing. Attacks during the night are more severe than attacks during daytime.

To find out about an all-natural, holistic 5-step system for curing acid reflux and heartburn and achieving freedom from most digestive disorders faster than you ever thought possible, click here!

Many people with heartburn or acid reflux understand the cause of their condition. However, there are still many people lacking essential knowledge of how heartburn acid reflux can be triggered. The simplest answer is food. Many people experience acid reflux after having a large meal due to improper breakdown of foods. Foods, such as spicy foods, chocolates, fried and fatty foods, can trigger heartburn. In fact, even citrus fruits have a tendency to trigger heartburn.

If you have been diagnosed with acid reflux, one way that can help lessen the occurrences is by changing your lifestyle. A change in lifestyle can help keep acid reflux from recurring. Also, you should avoid eating aa heavy large meal at one time. Instead, eat small meals at intervals. Eating large meals can increase pressure in the esophageal sphincter and at the same time, expand your stomach. Other preventive measures include maintaining your weight, avoiding alcoholic beverages, and not wearing clothes that fit tightly around the waist.

Acid reflux is a common condition that can lead to severe problems if left untreated. If you are diagnosed with acid reflux, always take necessary precautions when experiencing it to avoid serious problems that could affect even the respiratory system. Because acid reflux is a serious problem, people with heartburn should seek advice on how to prevent and treat this their condition....

U.S. Dietary Supplement Use On Rise, CRN Research Finds Whole Foods Magazine

Tucson, AZ Three in four Americans (76%) say they take dietary supplements, an increase of 5 percentage points from last year, according to the Council for Responsible Nutritions annual survey of consumers. Top-line findings were released by Survey Subcommittee Chair Nikki Yas at CRNs Ascend conference at The Ritz-Dove Mountain.

The survey of 2,000 consumers conducted Aug. 24-28 by Ipsos Research also found an 87% confidence level in vitamins/minerals, 64% confidence in specialty supplements, 63% confidence in herbals/botanicals, 53% confidence in sports nutrition and 45% in weight management.

Trust in the industry was highest among those ages 18 34 with 80% expressing trust. Some 79% of the 35 54 age group expressed trust and the trust number dropped to 69% for those 55 and older.

In terms of use, 41% reported they take supplements regularly and take a variety of vitamins, minerals and/or herbal products or specialty supplements. Only 13% of respondents said they have never taken a supplement. Meanwhile, regular use among those 55 or older at 69% is at its highest level since 2010.

When it comes to purchasing supplements, 58% of supplement users identified price as the most important factor. Yas cautioned against assuming that means low cost, as it may simply mean right price and said further research would be done next year on this quesiton.

The supplement facts box was an important factor to the buying decision of 40% of the respondents. Only 34% considered a quality seal on the bottle most important (i.e. NSF, UL, USP); 33% considered the number of servings in the bottle; and 33% looked for specific branded or generic ingredient(s).

Vitamin D and magnesium registered upward trending consumption and in one quirky twist, fiber intake was up in the youngest age group, but declined in the 55 and older population.

Vitamins rank as the most frequently consumed supplement with 75% of U.S. adults saying they take them. Specialty supplements are consumed by 38%, herbal botanicals by 29%, sports nutrition by 22% and weight management by 15%. A more specific breakdown by supplement type and reasons for taking them are shown in the charts below.

Vanilla Panna Cotta The Weston A. Price Foundation

One of my familys favorite things to do with raw cream has also become a favorite at our Wise Traditions Conferences! This is a very easy recipe that preserves the integrity of our precious raw cream, but of course can also be made with organic cream off the shelf. Optional additions such as egg yolk, berry puree, or mint make this a very versatile dessert!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 4 tsp. gelatin
  • 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup, honey, or coconut sap sugar 
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract or 2 tsp. extract & 2 vanilla beans, split

Soften the gelatin in 1 cup of cold cream for 5 minutes, then very gently warm the solution to fully dissolve. If using vanilla bean, add this while warming, then remove and scrape the pod, returning the vanilla bean specks to the solution. Add the rest of the ingredients, pour into ramekins or small bowls, cover with plastic wrap and chill till firm, about 2-3 hours. Top with berries, sliced or pured fruit, jam, or whatever your heart desires. Yum!

Note: I like to add 2 raw egg yolks, beaten well with the cream, to the cold ingredients before blending with the warm.

Variations:

Mocha Panna Cotta: substitute 1/2 cup strong coffee substitute (such as Dandy Blend or Cafix) for equal amount of cream. Also add 1/2 tsp. coffee extract.

Maple: use maple syrup for the sweete...

Yogurt So Thick It Can Stand Up Dr. William Davis

I tried something new with making yogurt.

I made the Super-Duper High-Fat Wheat Belly Yogurt starting with organic half-and-half for richer fat content. This generally yields an end-product with great creamy mouthfeel, thicker than most store-bought full-fat yogurt, certainly far thicker, tastier, and more filling than the low- or non-fat garbage that fills most supermarket refrigerators.

Recall that, while dairy products undoubtedly have their problems, the process of lactate fermentation yielding yogurt reduces many of these problems. The lactose sugar is converted to lactic acid, reducing carb content, and potential for lactose intolerance. It also reduces pH (making is mildly acidic) and thereby denatures (breaks down) milk proteins such as casein beta A1 that is potentially immunogenic.

For this little experience, I reasoned that 1) given the presence of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria and other species of probiotic organisms in yogurt that, when residing in the human gut, 2) feed on prebiotic fibers and proliferate and outmuscle undesirable species while 3) producing metabolites that yield health benefits (e.g., butyrate that reduces blood pressure, improves insulin sensitivity, reduces blood sugar, has mental/emotional benefits, and nourishes the intestinal lining and protects against colon cancer), what if I added prebiotic fibers to the yogurt mixture prior to fermentation, thereby providing nutrition to the microorganisms? It would conceivably increase bacterial counts, while perhaps also yield microbial metabolites like butyrate, maybe even reduce lactose further, given the presumed invigorated proliferation and metabolism made possible.

On preparing the half-and-half for fermentation, in addition to the live culture-containing couple of tablespoons of yogurt I added to seed the mixture, I also added one tablespoon of inulin powder and mixed. I then fermented at around 110 degrees F for 48 hours.

The end-result was interesting: A yogurt so thick that it stood up, as shown in the photograph. It almo...

Review: Paleo Snacks in a Pinch The Paleo Mom

Few things in the world make me happier than Paleo snacks.

Seriously, you try going three years on a special diet and see how much you appreciate someone else preparing your food for you. Actually, I suspect thats probably why youre here, so Im pretty excited to tell you about some of my new favorite Paleo snacks. 

(See Kid Snacks (and Snacks for Grown-Ups Too)

I spent a couple months this summer testing out One Stop Paleo Shops snacking staples. I travel a LOT, and having snacks on hand can make the difference between happy Claire and hangry Claire (you can ask my fiancee which one of these is preferable).

In this post, Ill point to a few of my newest Paleo snacks and other finds from One Stop and tell you how they factored into my routine.

Legit Bread Co Bagels

I grew up eating everything bagels and didnt realize how much nostalgia they dredged up for me until I cracked open this easy mix. Its a combination of cassava flour, pumpkin and flax seeds, and the flavor is pretty close to a whole wheat bagel once theyve been boiled and baked. I followed the directions and added a sprinkle of Trader Joes Everything But the Bagel seasoning. These arent exactly a quick breakfast, but they came together much quicker than they would have from scratch. Plus, theyre pretty great for an impressive Saturday morning baking project.
