Drinking Milk is not Necessary For Kids

I am saying that there are better options than milk. I just found an article scaring people about raising vegan kids. It really hits stresses that kids need milk. So I interview my son who has never had a glass of milk and ran his first half marathon at the age of 6.

Here is misleading article in the NY Daily News about how kids really should drink milk. http://www.nydailynews.com/lifestyle/health/2010/04/21/2010-04-21_vegan_diets_may_not_be_healthy_for_kids.html

Truth in Menus


You can't believe what you are told all the time when it comes to food origins. Chefs, food critics and writers even give wrong information. We all have a right to know where our food comes from. I don't care if it is a hospital, school cafeteria, grocery store or a restaurant.

If a restaurant does not have enough space then they can contact a local chicken or pig farmer. These farmers will welcome vegetable scraps. Can you imagine if more restaurants sent their veggie scraps to a better cause. www.healthychefdude.com

Is it Really Grass Fed Beef

I find that true grass fed beef is often mislabeled on menus. It seems restaurants are saying that they have grass fed and really don't have it. It is usually a range fed beef that is on grass but is then finished the last couple of months on corn/grain.
