Organic vs non-Organic peanut butter (pwn’age)

So, last night I was chillin’ out with some friends watching one of the funniest shows in recent memory, Wilfred, when a scene with peanut butter came up. My buddy announces that he loves peanut butter and no one else seems to comment other than I with “I like ORGANIC peanut butter”. He goes ahead and makes an uninformed statement that it’s the same thing… (we can’t blame him, we weren’t born geniuses with a keen yearning for knowledge) 

Well, it’s WAY too early in the morning for me to write a long, detailed account about each and every ingredient on the label but anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock has heard about the detriments of ADDITTIVES such as “corn syrup”, “soy protein”, “hydrogenated vegetable oils” (all being addictive, toxic and also a form of MSG) and if you, indeed, have been living under a rock, go ahead and GOOGLE them (be careful you’re not reading an article put out there by the evil Monsanto to sell you on their poison).

mmm I thought I was eating PEANUT BUTTER…WTF IS ALL THIS CRAP?!

and now for the organic (unfortunately the local grocery store didn’t have any organic peanut butter and I don’t usually keep it around so I had to rely on the power of the aforementioned Google entity but I did provide links):

Swanson Vitamins: Arrowhead Mills Organic Creamy Peanut Butter

Vitacost: Arrowhead Mills Organic Creamy Peanut Butter 16 oz

Ingredients: 100% Organic Dry Roasted Peanuts.

Contains: Peanuts. May contain traces of soy and tree nuts.

OMG!…ONE  INGREDIENT?!?! ;-)

Even if you don’t google it, anyone with a shred of any sort of brain activity should be able to decipher that the mere fact that you DON’T KNOW WHAT THESE ITEMS ARE, outside of “Roasted Peanuts”, should be enough of a concern but as they say “Ignorance is bliss”.

If anyone does want me to break down each ingredient and it’s biochemical toxicity to the body, please, inform me with a “oh Arthur PLEASE bestow some knowledge on us Plebes” and I just might ;-P

Peace, Love, Later, SEE YA! 

You ever read other people’s work, articles, editorials (or whatever have you) and feel like they are putting things out there that you were JUST about to blog, write, video about anyways?! That’s how I feel with a few select individuals working in the wellness, nutrition and fitness field!

John from Iron Mountain Wellness is one of those people! A few months ago he wrote a blog entry regarding tap water (something I’ve been militant about for the longest time) and another one that I loved about "fruit juice" (I just barfed in my mouth a little) and I’ve been a big fan ever since! So, this time around John again puts the proverbial pen-to-paper with some awesome, obvious yet not really practiced wellness tips to combat FAT loss and improve your own life, positively of course ;-)

Peace, Love, Later, See ya! 

Walking is something we at Metabolic Effect emphasize consistently to our clients.  We don’t view walking as exercise, but rather necessity.  One issue with walking is that many insist on aerobic power walking, not realizing leisure walking is likely the better option. This highlights the difference between weight loss thinking and fat loss thinking.

Thanks to Jade Teta of Metabolic Effect for another great article as always! 

Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. are changing the way they make the caramel coloring used in their sodas as a result of a California law that mandates drinks containing a certain level of carcinogens bear a cancer warning label.

oh OK so we are adding some other toxic chemical crap instead? Whoopti do!!!

You wouldn’t put 87 octane (“regular” gas) into a high-end Ferrari or Lambo (the answer is NO, girls). And thus, I only put the purest, cleanest and nutrient-packed food in MY body! I also, think the Color of Breakfast is beautiful and I don’t want to eat it, but eat it I will!!!I love my body and it loves me back! Symbiotic relationship :-D
