An ode to Moms everywhere

May 8, 2011

M-O-M aka superhero

Today is Mother’s Day, 2011, and for all the moms, grandmas, mothers to be, and women who have touched the lives of children, welcome to this exclusive club of game changers.  You have been blessed by perhaps the most complex of gifts, and you are capable of amazing things.  A cheerleader.  A goal keeper.  A mind blower.  A body grower.  A wealth of knowledge.  A care package maker for college.  A boo boo kisser.  A first crush listener.  A home of compassion.  A closet of borrowed fashion.  Tooth fairy, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Valentine’s Day Cupid and Birthday Maker, just to name a few.

Maybe most of all, you are a life giver.  You are pre-programmed to protect that life with every ounce of M-O-M in your veins.  Simba, protectoress…whatever you want to call it.  It is embedded in your DNA and from the moment you lay eyes on your child, you knew what your purpose in life was really all about. 

The purest love. Infinite and unconditional.

We asked you to tell us what motherhood  meant to you, personally, and I wanted to share your responses, and add my own.  Read below and be inspired.  Who could have ever known that a 3-letter word could mean so much.

An ode to MOM.

Annette RobertsonMotherhood is love. Infinite love for your children. Being your child’s teacher, protector and super hero.

Lisa HunsakerThe hardest job in the world! But the most rewarding too! Maybe not monetarily, but emotionally. I wouldn’t change anything about my journey for all the money in the world. Because having those little arms wrapped around my neck are more valuable to me than diamonds!

Traci Morey-Reynolds The best most rewarding journey I could’ve ever imagined…I started my journey 17 1/2 years ago and my oldest will graduate in just 6 weeks on my youngests 6 birthday who of which is a miracle baby…talk about shedding some tears…UGH……GOD IS GREAT!!! that is for sure…I love going through pictures and creating memories with them…I love every minute with my children they are the greatest even at their worst I love them so much they teach me so much patience, love, gratification…they are AWESOME!!!!

Janice BurkeMotherhood to me is setting an example for my children, in the way I live, the way I love, and also in my own self disapline…its a 24 hour job that brings 24 hours of reward! Seeing them smile reminds me everyday why I was created to be a momma!

Jessica Zylkowski BatesMotherhood is more love than you thought possible, laughter, hugs, kisses, tears, sleepless nights, excitement, all rolled into a ball and placed in your heart!

 Stephanie Locklear Kohn Someone once asked me what I thought the essence of a woman was and I replied, “I don’t think I can truly answer that question until I become a mother!” Boy, was I right. Motherhood is a gift that creates the love which makes our world complete!

Deidre Quiet Storm TubbsMotherhood is giving your everything to make sure that the person you gave birth will grow up to be the best person they can be. And all the snuggles and kisses along the way.

 Jenn Hooper-HerreraMotherhood is what makes you a better you. It defines the person you are, gives you strength, courage, humility and dignity. It encompasses your very soul and pushes you beyond all boundaries you though possible. Motherhood is the epitome of life lived.
 
 Catharina Davidsson Motherhood is getting and giving unconditional love. It is what makes you smile every day! It will most likely even make you cry every now and then. It is not always easy but it makes you a stronger person. It is the best thing that ever happened to me!
 
Paula ShemanskiI never knew life until I became a mom. Motherhood is joy, happiness, worry, fear, and best of all LOVE. The love and nurturing a mother gives is an amazing thing! ♥ Feel so blessed to have my little guy!

 
Amber Goetz LewisMotherhood is dying to yourself or carrying the cross. You find joy in giving to your children, and even other peoples children. Motherhood is limitless. You go beyond what you would have before you became a mother. There is a new light, a new joy, a new you.
 
Stephanie Quinones BrunsonMotherhood is sleepless nights, wiping runny noses, satisfying picky eaters, kissing boo-boos, getting pooped and peed on, and at the end of the day feeling so lucky to have your little one(s) that you would not change a thing!
 
Katie Schaffnit BrownMotherhood is…. Joy, stress, anticipation, pride, exhaustion, exhilaration, examination, smiles, tears, wonder, bewilderment, teaching, learning and most of all LOVE. ♥
 
Laura Fuentes Schneller Motherhood is loving another person(s) beyond comprehension. Having an unspoken connection to another human being and experiencing every emotion throughout a lifetime.
 
I am Mareya Ibrahim, the founder of Eat Cleaner and you have hopefully gotten to know a little bit about my journey.  Every decision I make in both my personal and professional lives are because I’m a mother.  Had I not been, I’m not sure I’d be the same person. It’s because of that I find the energy to stay up past midnight working to help my kids with their homework and read them a story.  It’s because of that I jump out of bed at the crack of dawn to make them breakfast and help them get a nutritious lunch ready.  It’s because of that I ventured into the scary and exciting world of mompreneur and made a committment to create a product that I truly believed in, and that could help other parents protect their children’s plate.  And it’s because of that I thank God every day for the many struggles and blessings.  Because I never felt meaning the way I do as a mom.
 
Thank you to my mom and all the moms before her for teaching us love, compassion, commitment and sacrifice for the greater good.  We carry your legacy to the next generations.
 
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!

Waste not, save more: How to make every bite count

April 21, 2011

Rachel Zoe on Waste...at least that's what we think she'd say

 Waste not, save more. 

With the escalating prices of everyday life and a belt-tightening economy, everyone is more mindful of where their green is going. Yet, if you were to peek into your local landfill, you’d find almost 40% of it from fresh food – a waste of precious resources and a weight on the environment. 25% of our water and 4% of oil go into food that ends up in the trash, and it costs the U.S. $1B (with a B) dollars a year just to deal with disposal. To add to the pile, methane gas from food waste is 21x more harmful to the environment than car emissions.*

Give your fruit + veggies a wash before they chill.  We know, you’ve been trained to wait until you’re ready to use it.  But that’s because they’re talking about using water.  You, my friend, know better. Eat Cleaner Fruit + Vegetable Wash extends your shelf life and helps make your fruit and veggies ‘fast food’ because they’re ready to eat in a flash.  Clean it, dry it and store it.

 

Break bread with friends and family.  Nothing like gathering people you love around the table or sharing food with someone.  It not only brings you closer together, it helps avoid waste.  Swap nights where one cooks and the other cleans up and bring a little extra to work to share with your cohorts.  It’s amazing what a little food can do to break the ice, too!

Give it back to the earth. Collect that organic goodness and complete the life cycle.  Compost is one of the best way to feed your garden, flowers and herbs.   Most local waste management companies will even provide one to you at little or no cost.  For more info on becoming a safer, cleaner composter, click here for a how-to primer.

*Source:  Dept. of Agriculture, Science NOW.

How can you make every bite more earth wise?  Try these 6 on for size.

Avoid Take Out. According to cleanair.org, the US population tosses out paper bags & plastic cups, forks & spoons every year to circle the equator 300 times! That $.99 burrito may seem cheaper and more convenient in the short run but all that packaging – disposable trays, bags, cups and cutlery – has to go somewhere!

Make a list, shop for it once. Gas has gone through the roof! If you make a list, shop for your ingredients once, and plan your meals for the week, you can maximize your resources and time. Store them in reusable containers and take them to work and have plenty ready for the kids’ lunchboxes. Getting organized will save you time and after all, who has time to waste?

Shop seasonally. The further food has to travel, the longer the carbon footprint behind it. When it comes to fresh fruit and veggies, check to see if they’ve trekked around the globe before you buy them. The NRDC’s Simple Steps website is a good resource to find fresh produce in season depending on where you live and the time of year.

Meat-less. It’s estimated 1,800 to 2,500 gallons of water go into a single pound of beef compared to about 200 pounds of tofu. Cutting down on meat consumption just once a week can also reduce your risk of heart disease by almost 20, according to the Meatless Monday campaign. Check out our featured recipe below.

Go wild fish. When it comes to seafood, opt for wild and line caught varieties over farm raised, which can often be confined, medicated and fed dried food pellets made up of fish oil and fish meal (cannibal fish?). Plus,farm raised fish have been found to contain lower omega-3 levels and higher omega-6 fatty acid levels, a pro-inflammatory that you want to try and avoid.

Pay it forward. Supporting companies that use sustainable ingredients, processes and packaging while giving back to the environment and their local economies can continue to pay it forward with your purchase. Look for these practices on their packaging, social media and year end reports. Even if these products and services cost a little more, look at it as an investment into the future.

REPORT: Radioactive Particles Can Be Removed

April 18, 2011

The situation in Japan has given us important food for thought, as the nation’s supply of fresh food is threatened.

Can radioactive particles be removed from food? Dr. Ibrahim says yes, if its done quickly.

A Bloomberg article last month states: 

“The number of radiation-affected foods will likely increase as each prefecture is testing its produce,” Taku Ohhara, an official at the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, said in a phone interview yesterday. Some 99 products, including milk and vegetables, were found to be contaminated in Tokyo and five prefectures to its north and east as of late March 26, according to the health ministry’s statement on its website.

Shoppers in Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney are shunning Japanese food products in supermarkets amid concern about radiation. The plight adds to the drags on economic growth caused by as much as 25 trillion yen ($307 billion) of damage from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Japan exported 481 billion yen of food last year, accounting for 0.7 percent of total exports, government figures show.

Radiation on some vegetables produced in Fukushima and Chiba prefectures was higher than legal standards, Japan’s Health Ministry said two days ago, according to Kyodo News. Chiba detected above-maximum radiation on 11 vegetables including red-leaf lettuce, Kyodo reported yesterday.”

But isn’t there a way to remove radioactivity? This article from Bloomberg only presents a very limited side of the story, according to Dr. Shawki Ibrahim, our Chief Scientific Officer and a Radiation Biology expert.  A LOT can be done if it happens quickly.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-03-18/radiation-s-effect-on-food-agriculture-questions-and-answers.html

“Soon after a contamination event like this, a significant amount of radioactivity is expected on the surface of fruits and vegetables from particle contamination. Absorption inside plants become important in the long term ( after 6 month to a year or so). It is my opinion that the situation in Japan now can benefit from an easy and safe method to clean surface contamination from many food items.  Eat Cleaner offers a very viable solution to chelating or bonding to radioactive particles.”  Dr. Shawki Ibrahim, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus.

Your St. Patty’s Day BFF

March 17, 2011

One Yummy BFF (Bite Friendly Food) For St. Patty’s Day

An ode to one of our favorite green holidays, you’ll want to saddle up to on St. Patty’s Day and beyond.  Pinch me, please…although I’m not Irish, if you weren’t sure.

Colcannon Puffs

To save time, you can also form these into larger patties and pan-fry in a non-stick skillet.

  • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, washed thoroughly with Eat Cleaner All Natural Fruit + Vegetable Wash. Keep the skins on!
  • 6 ounces kale, washed with Eat Cleaner All Natural Fruit + Vegetable Wash
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons soymilk
  • 2 tablespoons potato starch or corn starch

Cut the potatoes into small cubes (about 1/2-inch), put them in a large pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender.

While the potatoes are cooking, remove the center stalk from the kale and slice the leaves into strips. When the potatoes are done, lift them out with a slotted spoon and place in a large mixing bowl. Put the kale into the potato water and cook for 6 minutes or until kale is tender. Remove kale with a slotted spoon to a food processor. Add 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and pulse to chop fine.

Preheat oven to 425 F. Mash the potatoes and add the kale and all remaining ingredients. Stir well. Using a well-rounded tablespoon, form into balls about 1 inch across. Place them on an oiled baking sheet or, preferably, a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes. Carefully turn over and bake for 20 minutes more, until lightly browned.

Why Frankenfood can make you fat

February 19, 2011

The Adds and the Add-Nots 

 To celebrate Chinese New Year, we set out to find a really authentic restaurant in Los Angeles’ Chinatown.  We asked around, looking for a recommendation from people in the neighborhood and settled on a popular favorite. 

An hour after eating, I started to feel short breathed and was literally gasping for air.  My face was flush and I felt pangs of anxiety, followed by an intense need to sleep. For a moment, I thought I was having a heart attack.  Or was I just losing it altogether? Come to find out I had taken in a serious dose of MSG.  Monosodium Glutamate, a common additive that enhances flavor is also linked to obesity, learning disabilities and even brain lesions. I kicked myself over the fact that I forgot to make sure they weren’t adding that awful chemical to our meal.  After all, if we don’t ask, who’s going to tell?There are over 14,000 additives used in commercially prepared foods today. Some are far more complicated and potentially dangerous than others and manufacturers, restaurateurs and those who make our food are not required to disclose the hazards.  Whether you’re eating out or preparing food at home, it’s critical to know what to protect you and your family’s plate against. 

In this issue, check out our ‘Steer Clear’ list of additives to avoid like the plague, FrankenFood can make you fat and an Irresistible Clean Plate Club Offer.

The Cleaner Plate Club

The Steer Clear List.

(BUTYLATED HYDROXYANISOLE. Do you put it in your body or your gas tank? See answer below.)

Ditch these phony baloneys:

1. Artificial sugars:  Created to pacify the sweet cravings of dieters, sweeteners do more than sweeten your food — they serve as a health hazard.  Aspartame, Acesulfame K and Saccharine are all chemically produced to sweeten our foods without the calories of sugar. Even Splenda, which has a better reputation is not as clean as it should be. Ironically, these empty calories can create a vicious cycle of craving more sweets, with the inevitable consequences of weight gain. Don’t be seduced by the calorie-free promise.  What you trade out is far worse.  Artificial sugars have been linked to behavioral problems, hyperactivity, allergies and are possibly carcinogenic.  Stick with the real deal.

Sweeteners are rampant in diet, lite or sugar-free products. They are used in dry mixes for beverages, instant coffee and tea, gelatin desserts, puddings, non-dairy creamers, chewing gums, breath mints, diet soda, yogurt, even children’s medicine and vitamins.

THE CLEANER PLATE CLUB TIP: Try more natural sources of sugar as in agave, stevia, honey, molasses, and maple syrup in moderate quantities.

2. Artificial colors: Food colorings are used to make the food look more appealing or to replace colors lost in processing. However, don’t let these colors deceive you. Artificial colorings are synthetic dyes that are mostly coal-tar derivatives. 

They are suspected to cause allergies, asthma, hyperactivity and are possibly carcinogenic. Chief culprits: Candy, beverages, soda, gelatin desserts, pastry, sausage, baked goods, even fruit like green oranges sprayed with red dye to make them look ripe. 

THE CLEANER PLATE CLUB TIP: Keep it real with a rainbow of fresh fruit and veggies, natural juices and additive-free snacks

3. Artificial preservatives (BHA, BHT, EDTA, etc):  You may see these ingredients in chips, fried snack foods, baked goods, carbonated drinks, cheese spreads, chewing gum, ice cream, breakfast cereals and even cosmetics.
These preservatives are actually synthetic petroleum-based and fat soluble antioxidants, used by manufacturers to prevent oxidation and retard rancidity.  They can cause cancer, allergic reactions and hyperactivity, and BHT may be toxic to the nervous system and the liver.

THE CLEANER PLATE CLUB TIP: Choose food and drinks labelled with “no artificial antioxidants.”  Avoid poor quality vegetable oils.  Look for cold-pressed virgin oil which contains natural antioxidants such as Vitamin E.  Eat fresh produce that doesn’t contain these preservatives.

4. Nitrites and Nitrates: Love your bacon in the morning and salami at lunch time? Cured, preserved, smoked meats are saturated with nitrites and nitrates to preserve shelf life and give it the healthy pink hue. These two preservatives may prevent the growth of bacteria but they transform into cancer-causing agents called nitrosamines in the stomach. They also produced noticeable side effects like headaches, nausea, vomiting and dizziness.

THE CLEANER PLATE CLUB TIP: Look for nitrite-free processed meats and opt for meat-free alternatives to mix it up.

5. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG): You may be happy that you’re dining in restaurants that carry the “No MSG” declaration.  But do you know that MSG lurks in all kinds of sauces used to prepare the foods that you thought are MSG-free?  They are also significant in all kinds of snacks, seasonings, candy, even infant formula, over-the-counter medications and nutritional supplements. 

THE CLEANER PLATE CLUB TIP: Buy MSG-free snacks and read labels, so you can make healthier choices.

(BUTYLATED HYDROXYANISOLE is a cancer causing additive found in some cereals, chewing gum potato chips, vegetable oil and is definitely on the ‘don’t put it in your stomach’ list.  Just remember, Buty is booty.)

FrankenFood Makes You Fat

Each American is exposed to about 10 to 13 different pesticides through food, beverages and drinking water every day. And nine of the 10 most common pesticides are endocrine-disrupting, which have been linked to weight gain.* In his book, “The New American Diet,” author Stephen Perrine talks about “obesogens” and how they play a role in the American obesity crisis. From pesticides to growth hormones, antibiotics and plastic pollutants, to name a few. Bad for the environment, bad for us, here’s what to avoid.

In your refrigerator:

  • The Dirty Dozen: Non organic peaches, apples, sweet bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, kale, lettuce, imported grapes, carrots, pears.
  • Farm raised fish: (e.g. Farmed salmon are up to 10 times higher in pesticides like PCBs as wild salmon)
  • Corn/soy-fed beef and chicken
  • Non organic dairy products

In your pantry:

  • Plastic compounds (in particular BPA)
  • Lining of canned foods such as canned tuna, soup, beans and tomatoes
  • Lining of canned beverages such as energy drinks, baby formula
  • Sports drink bottles

THE CLEANER PLATE CLUB TIP:  Wash with EAT CLEANER All Natural Fruit + Vegetable Wash or Wipes to effectively remove pesticide residue from the surface of fresh foods. 

PEAS OF MIND:
  Rest assured that all EAT CLEANER(r) products are made with BPA-free plastic, including our Wash + Dryer Kit Spinner and Scrub Brush.  Check out all of our EAT CLEANER(r) products at www.eatcleaner.com.

A Fit February Super Bowl

February 4, 2011

 

You’re ambling through the grocery store, shopping for snacks for Superbowl Sunday and POW, just like that the hunger pangs start to grow and your so hungry you could eat a frozen pizza.  Walls of processed, fluorescent colored triangles and squiggly do-s, brown, creme filled sponges and sugary-chemical drinks start to close in on you and suddenly, you feel the room start to spin and your hands quiver.  What’s a Fit Foody to do? 

Whether you’re getting ready for game day,  chasing your kids across the park or bounding around the country chasing down clients, keeping your snack attacks from an all-out battle of the binge can be a challenge. To avoid completely sabotaging your diet or suffering a melt down, put down the ding dongs and class up game day.

1)  Put a Skewer In It:  The Big Game doesn’t have to be host of a junk food fest.  Just put a stick in it and you’re done.  Chop up bite size carrots, broccoli spears, celery sticks and radishes and skewer them for a portable treat.  Create a ‘Super Bowl’ of cut fruit and offer toothpicks with a side dip of plain lowfat Greek yogurt mixed with a spoonful of honey.  Spray EAT CLEANER Fruit + Vegetable Wash on fruit and veggies to help them stay fresher, longer.  For your protein, try our yummy Marinated shrimp skewer recipe, below.  You can substitute chicken, tofu or tri tip.

2)  Crunchy Munchies: Food Should Taste This Good is the name of the brand and we love these better-for-you chips when you need a crunchy fix.  Food Should Taste This Good Multi-grain tortilla chips are made with flax, sunflower and sesame seeds so they come with functional benefits.  Flavors like Olive and Jalapeno appeal to your worldly tastebuds while Chocolate and Cinnamon satisfy a sweet tooth.  Pretzel Crisps are a tasty, thin, all-natural flat-baked pretzel and the world’s first spreadable pretzel cracker.  At only 110 calories per serving with no trans fats, saturated fat, or cholesterol, they’re packed with fiber and flavor that can handle the dip or stand alone on their own. Deli Style, available in the deli section of stores of course, and Modern Classic varieties.  Savory and sweet varieties include Sesame, Garlic Parmesan, Tuscan Three Cheese and Cinnamon Toast (yum, it’s like a churro but without the guilt). 

3) Dip it – Give your full fat spinach dip and cheese whiz a time out.  Opt for tomato and onion salsa, cannellini bean dip made with a little olive oil and basil, or a lowfat yogurt dip seasoned with cucumber and lemon.  You can skinny up your spinach dip with nonfat sour cream, fresh  spinach and a little hot sauce for a kick without calories.
4) Happy Endings: We’re not all saints, so sometimes, you gotta give in to your sweet tooth.  But cookies and cake can pack a whopping 400+ calories!  All natural Vitalicious VitaTops taste like an indulgence.  Deep Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Pomegranate, Apple Crumb and Banana Fudge are just a few of the fantabulous flavors. At just 100 calories and a gram and a half of fat, you can warm em up, and top them with a little non-fat whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon and voila – a delish dessert for under 120 calories!  Plus they contain 9 grams of fiber 4 grams of protein.  SCORE!
Grilled Rosemary Shrimp and Tomato Skewers
This is shrimp with some big flavor.  If you make the marinade in advance, cook time is only about 6 minutes. A little indulgence that you can afford when made at home.
 
1/4 cup finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary leaves plus sprigs for garnish
3 tablespoons olive oil plus oil for brushing shrimp
2 lbs shrimp  (Wild caught is best; clean any debris or traces of STPP with EAT CLEANER Seafood + Poultry Wash)
Basked of grape tomatoes (wash with EAT CLEANER Fruit + Vegetable Wash)
12-inch bamboo skewers, pre-soaked for 30 minutes
Lemon wedges 
 
Mash garlic and salt together in large bowl. Mix together with minced rosemary, and oil and add shrimp. Let stand, covered in refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Soak skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Preheat grill. Place 4 shrimp on each skewer. Brush with oil. Grill for about 3  minutes on each side, or until just cooked through. Makes 7-8 skewers.
