Dont Watch Me

Eating organic/healthy on a budget

The best way to go gluten free is to focus on protein and fruits and veggies. Don't buy a bunch of gluten free bread and stuff--it is expensive and most of it has lots of fat and sugar to make it palatable. Corn tortillas make a decent bread substitute for a sandwich (just call it a "wrap"). Save the spendy gluten free products for an occasional treat instead of a diet staple. Thai kitchen makes some really good and really affordable rice noodle bowls that are gluten free. In my grocery they are by the ramen noodles. There are things out there, but you have to search around.

Excellent point. People may as well be avoiding bread overall, unless by pure chance they happen to have all the necessary tools, grains, and slow cooked ovens that we did in the past which didn't make bread as harmful and processed as it is today. Also, what do they replace gluten with? Other things that may be even worse:

Cutting out processed foods and bottled drinks frees up a lot of money to be spent on real food.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

I don’t understand the hype about organic because sometimes it’s just not possible to have access to organic food, but even otherwise you can eat healthy on a low budget. Eggs for example are really healthy and high in protein and pretty affordable, the same with fruits and veggies.

Normal eggs are not 'pretty affordable', they are dirt cheap. Ridiculously cheap. Because of how poorly and un-hygeianically they are raised and fed. And then you get the salmonella outbreaks.

And local. small farmed or home grown organic food isn't hype. Everyone needs to do the best they can to obtain it. Hence this thread.

Excellent point. People may as well be avoiding bread overall, unless by pure chance they happen to have all the necessary tools, grains, and slow cooked ovens that we did in the past which didn't make bread as harmful and processed as it is today.

It's not the baking that needs to be slow, it's the fermenting and raising. And you can do that at home. Special tools aren't really needed.

Yeah. The food industry just doesn't do it anymore because that takes time. And time is money.
