Grass-Fed Nation - Getting Back the Food We Deserve

Summary

For years we’ve been told that traditional foods are unhealthy because of their saturated fat content. In place of grass-fed meat, grass-fed dairy products, and eggs from hens running on pasture, we now mostly eat grain-fed meat and processed factory foods – and we’ve witnessed an epidemic of disease, from type-2 diabetes to heart disease and cancer.


Modern agriculture has locked us into an unhealthy, vicious circle, with degraded foods pouring from an overstretched, impoverished landscape.


There’s a simple remedy: the grass-fed movement. We can make sure that the meat, dairy foods and eggs we buy come from animals grazing on or running in pasture, as they always used to. This will also put life back into our soils and wildlife back onto our farmland.


Graham Harvey, agricultural advisor to BBC Radio 4’s The Archers, lays out all the arguments for grass-fed food – why it’s good for us, and why it’s good for the planet.

    You may not have as much control over your thoughts as you think you do. Part of your brain is a wild, irrational beast, and it's up to you to teach it to behave!
     
     
     
    The way we humans think isn't as straightforward as it might seem. Our thoughts actually come from three different parts in our brains: a rational, humanlike brain, a calculating computer brain, and a loud, emotional chimp brain that overpowers the others. The Chimp Paradox will teach you how to manage your thoughts, giving your rational human brain the control it needs, and getting your chimp brain under control.
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
    ·      Why the chimp brain's drives are too powerful to change 
     
    ·      When your chimp brain is in charge, and how to manage it
     
    ·      How to use other parts of your brain to control the chimp brain

    What’s the recipe for a happy family? A spirit of cooperation. Instilling a spirit of cooperation in children is the real secret to providing the gift of a happy childhood, being a “good” parent, and building the family you’ve always wanted.In Raising Cooperative Kids, research psychologists Marion Forgatch and Gerald Patterson, one of the original developers of Time Out, provide parenting techniques that tap deep-rooted human instincts, making them universal and easy to use no matter where you live or how your family is structured. Developed over 40 years of practice and tested in clinical and prevention trials, these skills empower parents to teach their children new behaviors, change unwanted behaviors, and reduce family conflicts. Together, Forgatch, Patterson, and Friend give parents the formula to overcome family struggles and inspire children to cooperate—from toddlerhood into their teens.Specific guidance is included for issues ranging from how to share the bathroom during the morning rush to what to do when a child misbehaves. The authors also remind us of the importance of play—enjoying each other and sharing time and activities together is the cornerstone of a connected, happy family.
