New Year's Resolution for Healthier Kids

New Year's Resolution for Healthier Kids

So many parents are looking for easier ways to feed their kids. Time, budget and convenience are HUGE excuses used for feeding their children snacks and quasi-meals loaded with artificial ingredients, sugars (yes, even juices) and other items missing vital nutrients. My friend, Valérie Delahaye...

Day 17 - Identifying False Friends

We’ve all heard the hype about what’s good and bad to eat. It’s so easy to fall prey to (even for me) when you hear news report after news report telling you that there is only one type of food to eat. We have been so far removed from our roots for so long, that these claims actually seem true! And as we buy into it, we get sicker and sicker as a society. This video cuts to the heart of all the crap and helps you to make food choices that will ultimately help you to begin eating intuitively, not based upon your cravings.

Here’s the video:

No pictures today. I’m off to a cool health seminar that will surely add some new ideas to the Challenge. Tomorrow I hope to be able to show you a picture of the grain-free, sugar-free sweet potato biscuits I made today. ????

Health Food in St. Martin

Health Food in St. Martin

If you can’t eat just anywhere, then here’s your guide to finding health foods on vacation. In particular, people with severe intolerances like gluten intolerance will need to pack their food.

As you know, I like to pack my own healthy stuff to bring on my trips. Usually, a few cans of mercury-free tuna and/or salmon, some fig or coconut bars, plantain chips fried in heat stable palm oil and sometimes even sea salt if I have no idea what I’ll find on the other side.

Luckily, St. Martin also has some decent options for people who are suffering from allergies of all sorts. The first place you should consider is the Bio-Man in Marigot. It’s near the waterfront, but on the south side away from where the crux of the action is. One nice thing about Bio-Man is that they have food for omnivores and don’t consider stuff healthy just because it’s veggie based. So you can find some decent meats, eggs and even raw butter there as well as full fat plain yogurt.

The two supermarkets you want to check out are the Grand Marché just south of Marigot (and presumably the ones nearer the airport would have a good selection as well) and the US Market in Grand Case, which is a bit more expensive. At the very least, you will find French meats, which are practically organic and pastured by US standards as well as sea salt and organic olive oil and vinegars. I wouldn’t go to anything in Philippsburg for health foods. Those places tend to be dirty and junky and cater to a different crowd altogether.

Throughout the island you will find a bunch of rasta eateries that serve fresh juices and vegetarian fare as well as a restaurant and bookstore called Top Carrot in the Philippsburg area. Top Carrot claims to have homemade ice cream, but we didn’t notice when we went in there.

If you know anything about me, you’ll know that I tend to steer clear of these places because they focus so much on the vegetarian aspect of things that their food is typically littered with all kinds of rancid vegetable oils and synthetic soy/almond/hemp animal replacement ingredients that are major contributors to disease. Ironically, the very thing that helps to abate the negative effects of these types of food (because the body’s cells have an innate preference for them) is ANIMAL FOODS! No wonder so many vegetarians end up with bloated bellies and falling hair!

Nonetheless, you can certainly find any food you want or NEED to eat while vacationing on St. Martin!
