Students Go Whole Hog with Farm-to-Cafeteria Cooking
In today’s episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by Paleo blogger and author Melissa Joulwan from “The Clothes Make The Girl” (author of the bestselling books Well Fed and Well Fed 2) and Louise Hendon from “Paleo Living Magazine” both of whom have low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet recipes featured in Jimmy’s new book Keto Clarity. Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Melissa, and Louise discuss the new “gluten-free” labeling standards, why a major nutrition group thinks “processed foods” are healthy, how exposing your skin to sun is actually protective against developing cancer, a promising new mouse study looking at low-carb diets and colon cancer, how one school is changing the way students look at where their food comes from, why you want to choose white rice over brown rice (or none if you cannot tolerate the carbs), and why people have guilt and regret when they choose to watch television and miss a workout. Plus, don’t miss the herb “rice” salad from Melissa and incredible nutrition tips from Louise at the end of the show. Now you know what to do–pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

        Thank you for a great show, Jimmy, and to your link to Ms. Stout’s column. With all due disrespect to Ms. Stout,I have to really question the white rice is better vs. brown argument. It has been well documented that in the early 20th century, there was a direct link between the consumption of highly-milled white rice and the disease beriberi. My father, aunts and grandparents were prisoners of war in Japan-occupied Philippines where they were given nothing but white rice to eat and prisoners would beg to have their white rice replaced with brown to stave off or cure the disease. In one scientific study, even chickens fed white rice developed the disease. You can read this in a book called “Beriberi, White Rice and Vitamin B: A Disease, A Cause and a Cure,” by Kenneth J. Carpenter. That’s not all though, seriously, just google “beriberi and white rice” and you will find a slew of articles and links to medical journals, both historic and modern. By the way, I don’t advocate eating rice either, brown or white, even though I grew up eating it at every meal (and yes they do taste like “angelic clouds”–lol), but I do allow to treat myself to sushi occasionally and can’t imagine life without it!

  • This Old Housewife

    Now for some cold water: is farm-to-cafeteria school lunch the way of the future? Sadly, no–look what the USDA did to bring the school garden-to-cafeteria program to a screeching halt. Because the produce wasn’t being inspected by a federal USDA inspector to certify it as “fit to feed our kids”, the program died a horrible death. The same will happen with this animal program–not enough inspectors to certify the meat as “fit to eat” will ensure this idea never gets off the ground. Besides–who would foot the bill for feed? Slaughtering? Can enough animals possibly be raised to feed a cafeteria full of school students, and keep the cafeteria freezers in stock YEAR ROUND? This endeavor would cost much more than MyPlate ever did to implement, in spite of kids throwing food away.

    MyPlate relies heavily on subsidized foods–foods which are subsidized to a greater degree than animal meat. If this ever took off, kids would have to be charged about $5.00/day for lunches. Low-income people cannot afford that, even with some sort of meal subsidy. And never mind those “free lunch” kids–there would BE no freebies here.

    Chalk it up to politicians and the never-ending sequester for hacking away at USDA inspectors in the first place. This bad news is brought to you (through me) from the people who declared pizza a vegetable.

    The LAST thing politicians want is a smarter, well-nourished populace–then we’d be smart enough to vote them all out of office in box-car lots.
