A note that came in today…thank YOU!

Monica Raw Milk

Serving raw milk on Capitol Hill after the Raw Milk Rally, May 2011

I have been meaning to email you for over a year now.  I met you at the raw milk rally at the national mall a year and a half ago, at that time I told you how your pro-bono class you held at your son’s Waldorf school revolutionized my ideas about nutrition.   I just wanted to thank you for your work.  Seriously, that night when I heard you spoke, a light bulb went on and I said, NOW I understand.  I had always prided myself in trying to eat “healthy”, but now I understand the healing power of nutrient dense food.  While, my children have never dealt with any serious health issues, I have seen improvement as we have made simple and small changes. I usually did most of our cooking, but soon after listening to your presentation we embraced raw milk, cheese, yogurt, butter.  We dropped vegetable oils, love coconut oil, homemade stock soups, fermented pickles, salsa and KETCHUP.  I can’t thank you enough for the path you set me on.  We now enjoy raw liver, cod liver oil and robust health.
Thanks again,
A mom in Silver Spring, Maryland
Thank YOU, dear mom, for writing! I so appreciate it!!

and now, to add Insult to Injury…

have a little phyto-ESTROGEN in your ice-pop, little girl or boy!!! Ice pops are TOXIC POPS!!

Yes, yes, indeed. Don’t look now–yes, LOOK NOW! They are adding SOY PROTEIN to ice pops! What’s so insidious about this? The soy is in the fine print. You’ve got to search for it, almost with a magnifying glass. Will the addition of food fractions and fake food and more than that MAJOR ALLERGENS to food never stop?! START READING THE LABELS, MOMS–and Dads–and everyone else…before you toss that “on sale for Memorial Day” “give your child a treat for summer” box of toxins into your shopping cart. And certainly before you start passing them out to all the neighborhood kids!

The time is NOW to start being smart about what we are feeding our children. Heck, the time is PAST now. We must be aware and awake. We must be reading the labels on anything that has a label! I have said it before and I’ll say it again…just because it is in a store does not mean the food is good for you! Heck, it may not even qualify for food at all!

So I write this post. For those of you who already make your own ice pops and popsicles from real ingredients for your children, kudos to you! Keep it up! Can be as easy as putting diluted orange juice in paper cups with popsicle sticks! Or weak lemonade made with maple syrup for that matter! Blend up some berries with coconut milk…Start a popsicle revolution in your neighborhood! In your school! Everywhere! Teach other moms how to make real food popsicles for their children. Turn the tide from electric blue, green, yellow and red toxic pops to a real pop! Once the kids get a taste, they will love your real pops. Just try it!

What’s the INJURY that is already in the ice pops? I will give you a hint…excito-toxins, GMOs, corn syrup…yes, yes, yes! Food dyes that have been linked to hyperactivity in children! For those of you who are going for the “healthier”, sugar free option, DON’T!! Aspartame is an excito-toxin! Excito-toxins make children –and adults– go crazy. Alter their thinking. Set their nervous systems to “berserk” mode. GMOs? Yep, in that corn syrup and High Fructose Corn Syrup! (Do your children need more sugar? more corn syrup? HFCS?!! I think not!) And now, for something really awful…soy protein! In an ice pop! One of the TOP ALLERGENS in this country. Full of phyto-ESTROGEN. Genetically Modified, of course (that means Frankenfood). AND an ANTI-NUTRIENT. What are they thinking?!! Whatever the Food Scientists (Mad Scientists, I would venture to say) are thinking about when they put SOY protein in an ice pop, it’s not about health, folks! From Dr. Kaayla Daniel’s The Whole Soy Story…here is a sample of health effects that have been linked to soy consumption: breast cancer, brain damage, infant abnormalities, thyroid disorders, kidney stones, impaired fertility…What’s “modified soy protein” anyway? Something from a lab. Again. And they are putting it in unsuspecting children’s ice pops?!! Even if it is a minute amount, it doesn’t belong there. Keep your allergenic, genetically modified, anti-nutrient, estrogenic and toxic food fractions OUT of our ice pops! The outrage!

Read the labels!

Make the ice pops!

Take back your and your child’s health!!

More on food dyes and additives

More on excitotoxins and more

More on the dangers of sugar and fructose

More on unfermented soy and more

This is NOT the treat they (the children) think it is. And it is NOT the treat they (the Food Manufacturers) say it is, either. Make your own!

Book testimonial…!

Hi folks,

I wanted to share this one with you … a testimonial about my new book, with Love from Grandmother’s Kitchen: Traditional Cooking Techniques for Well-Being

“Good Heavens to Murgatroid! as Landon would say!! If I had known how great this book was going to be, I would have ordered more than just two copies — one for me and one for MHF. It’s like having all the notes and charts you’ve scattered all about the house neatly encapsulated in a small kitchen DRAWER. It’s like having Monica Corrado at your shoulder when you need her. What was I THINKING?!? The binding is brilliant, the format and type are brilliant, the content is brilliant, it is BRILIG and doth teach you well. It is compact and concise but nutrient-dense. It might be Monica’s first book, but I don’t think even SHE can do better. THIS is the book you need. And you know who you are! TRUST ME!! Get it now and start the New Year off right. And no, I don’t work for Monica. And I didn’t even gush about Joel Salatin’s latest book. But I’m gushing about this one. TRUST ME!!  P.Hannam,VA

Thanks, P!!
