Keeping our Food Pest Free

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 11.46.09 PMI know it sounds crazy but its very important to make sure that our food sources are free from pests. I am all for organic but there is a line that should be drawn and people should have an open mind to what solutions that include pest control might be included in keeping bugs away from our food. There are herbicides and these can be very effective in keeping especially our vegetables free from insects and disease. There can be an excess of chemical used and applied at the wrong time in the growth and harvest process but they shouldn’t be altogether thrown out the window just because they are chemicals and it does not sound natural, therefore it must be harmful.

I would also like to say that I am very certain that pests in our home should be controlled. There are pest such as rodents that carry disease and if not controlled in our homes then it doesn’t matter what herbicide or lack of chemical was used on a crop. These critters need to be stopped and if they are not treated by a professional like some friends I know in Fort Worth pest control then I think someone should take action.

Starting a nonprofit in Texas to promote healthy eating

Screen Shot 2015-02-13 at 2.32.23 PMWhen I think about how important it is to eat healthy I think about how helpful it might be to start a nonprofit organization in Texas to promote better eating habits. I know most of my friends are simply not aware oh how they need to be eating. They did not have a wife who graduated with a nutrition degree that’s passionate about organic healthy foods. So my thought was to start a nonprofit that would address the different ways someone needs to eat healthier. I didn’t know the first thing about starting a nonprofit but I did remember a friend of mine who was actually my assistant coach in high school and who currently consults with nonprofit organizations. Dale Hart has been working for or with nonprofit organizations for over two decades. Currently he spends most of his Time assisting folks that want to start up a nonprofit in Texas to benefit a variety of different causes. This someone wants to start a nonprofit correctly and make sure that the IRS does not have any problems with their filing or with their future filing efforts then I would highly recommend using the service to Dale offers. The whole filing system is not rocket science but there are some guidelines that if not followed correctly could cause major red flags and not even allow the organization to begin. This can cost someone a lot of money and a lot of time and so I recommend getting the consulting assistance that they’ll can offer. Back to eating healthy, as that is our main intention of this blog. It’s important for us all to be aware of what’s healthy and what’s not. Eyes fifth Half of my life being completely unaware of how many calories or nutritional content that various foods set before me contained. If it look good I ate it! After all who really cares about attritional content as long as it tastes good and makes my tummy happy. Whether or not most Americans want to admit it this is the same approach that majority of us take.

My Journey

More than 20 years ago I married the love of my life. She had and still has a passion for delicious but yet healthy cuisine. She studied nutrition in college and because of this background and passion of hers I actually first thought this was a curse on my life. What did I do to deserve a wife who wanted me to eat healthy! All I cared about was consuming delicious food and lots of it! I studied agriculture in college and my favorite class was the class on meats. It was a night class and it seems like it was scheduled right about the time we should all be eating our supper so it never failed that we spent a significant period of time talking about our favorite dishes and restaurants in the area. All I really cared about at that point in my life was eating rich meats and super sweets! Once we were married all of a sudden I had the love of my life wanting me to eat brussels sprouts. I love my wife for many different reasons and I can truly say today that I love her because of her passion and commitment to putting delicious but yet healthy cuisine on our family’s table. I still spend to or three nights a week chained to my grill in the back yard but even there I am normally cooking healthy, organic, naturally harvested meat. Even tonight I’ll be cooking for 25 people dear hamburgers and I can’t wait to get started!
