The long lasting absence of a genuine environmentalist movement slowly but inevitably leads to a degeneration of the basic knowledge on organic farming and sane diet, as they are now cut off their spiritual, social or scientific roots.
We already know ancient swindles like organic meat, organic wine, and so many organic snake oils which encumber certain shops. But more seriously, the very basis of sane food and diet seem to begin to fall into oblivion... and this can lead to health hazards. So everybody knows that proteins must be in enough quantity regarding carbohydrates. This is why simply suppressing meat without changing the other things can lead to an unbalance (excess of carbohydrate), which can ruin your vegan reform, and result in obesity or other health troubles. For this reason, any diet reform must include whole grains, under the form of whole wheat bread, noodles, couscous, grain dishes, seitan, soy, quinoa, etc. with the strict banishment of white bread, white couscous, white noodles, and white flour cakes. But what I see is that it is more and more difficult to find wholegrain foods, and even the labelling is becoming misleading. So «wheat flour» seems to always mean «white flour»! I even found a shopkeeper who sells wholegrain bread only on order, otherwise «customers don't buy it»!! We could expect an organic shop keeper to educate the customers, instead of this counter-productive clientelism... Other example, «hyperproteined» biscuits, made of... white flour and... milk proteins!!! How could we more obviously mock at the social and economic basis of ecological food!!! I also found in France green noodles «made of quinoa» (a Peruvian grain, with a high protein content), which could make a reliable basis for a balanced diet... except that the label says «flour», thus white flour, with only some percent of quinoa! Useless to say that these noodles are not better than the supermarket noodles! I am angry about this organic swindle which cost me several kilos, before I understand the problem.
For this reason I very seriously invite all the readers of this page to inquire about basis of diet reform, to be VERY cautious to what they buy, and bugger all the shops, suppliers, producers, etc. so that they keep supplying quality foods really fulfilling the dietetic, social and scientific basis of sane and ecological food. The good ideas are seitan (wheat which starch was eliminated) or soy proteins that we can mix with vegetables or leguminous plants, without forgetting the little meditation about satiety of wholegrain, which so easily allows to eliminate the hunger of meat. Caution not to be fobbed off «soy flakes» which are perfectly indigestible... as, like I saw, certain organic shop keeper are really incompetent.
I indicate these resources for their interest, but without any waranty on their content that I do not control. (and which can be modified without my notice)
(January 1st 2013) I created these pages in the beginning of the Internet, when we had to «surf on the web» to find sites. Then came Google and others, which made this search miraculously simple. So, for ten years I did not really updated these pages... However, since some years, I note that relevant sites are less and less visible in these search engines, hidden by an increasing number of verbiage pages supported by powerful financial means. And surreptitiously, the vital network of links which formed «the web» has disappeared: we no more control Internet! So I say to everybody:
TO EXIST ON THE INTERNET, LINK AND BE LINKED!
Then I put these pages back in action.
Do not hesitate to create links toward these pages, or to tell me interesting links.
