View from the hill

Today,as I gazed down at the town from my hilltop, I saw a “man” who had inherited about £120,000 several years ago, and, rather than buy his council flat, he’d blown all the money on foreign holidays (which he couldn’t recall, due to the vast intake of alcohol) and wanted to stay as he always … Continue reading View from the hill The post View from the hill appeared first on pjf.

diet myths and common sense

It’s good to find a fellow blogger that is on the same wavelength about quality food (particularly on a tight budget) and unhelpful food advertising whose prime objective is profits.    Quill.com publishes an informative image which can serve as a reminder of the pitfalls to avoid. Click on the image for larger print! I … Continue reading diet myths and common sense The post diet myths and common sense appeared first on pjf.

healthy diet and poverty

Unplugged from food corporations I’ve heard some alarming tales from friends who work with people trapped in poverty and debt. The worst cases, due to the tax and benefits nightmare orchestrated by successive governments, are all people working full-time. Usually, they are working so many hours that they find it difficult to make the best … Continue reading healthy diet and poverty The post healthy diet and poverty appeared first on pjf.

butter is better – whole foods beat profitable processed pap

The food corporation adverts would have us believe that margarine is cheaper than butter, and you can’t taste the difference! Well I can taste the difference, and decided to do some simple arithmetic to test the truth of their claims: Facts: Maragarine ingredients: 1. WATER 2. sunflower oil 26% 3. Palm oil 4. linseed oil … Continue reading butter is better – whole foods beat profitable processed pap The post butter is better – whole foods beat profitable processed pap appeared first on pjf.

easy steps to freedom

(tags: wisdom, freedom, advertising, alienation)  Thought for the day: Why does nearly everyone on the supermarket look confused, impatient, lost, oblivious to those around them? Why do they look angry when they get in their £23,000, black, 4 wheel drive, aggressive Shopping Trolley? examples: Because they have been taken over by advertising. Walking to the … Continue reading easy steps to freedom The post easy steps to freedom appeared first on pjf.

Olympics junk food taste test – learn to (enjoy) cooking!

There’s an entertaining article about food corporations attempting to cash in on the 2016 Olympics, maybe because they believe we’re daft enough to think eating advertised, processed, devitalised ‘food’ in front of the TV will turn US into Olympic athletes by some mysterious process of induction. The author is less scathing than me about fast … Continue reading Olympics junk food taste test – learn to (enjoy) cooking!

eating disorder psychology triggered by fad diet

The ever-growing (and conflicting) ‘expert’ advice about what to eat, and what not to eat, is now creating problems for women in their 30s, 40s and beyond. In 18 years specialising in “body dissatisfaction” psychology, clinical psychologist Louise Adams has never seen as many women of all ages with food issues; food anxiety is at … Continue reading eating disorder psychology triggered by fad diet The post eating disorder psychology triggered by fad diet appeared first on pjf.

eating healthy on a budget

Recent shopping trips have made two facts very plain:  1. Many customers, much younger than I, look extremely physically unfit/unwell.  2. Many customers look and sound bewildered when deciding what to buy  They would be less vulnerable to the mischief of food corporations’ TV advertising and packaging if they had a list. Even better if … Continue reading eating healthy on a budget The post eating healthy on a budget appeared first on pjf.

walnuts and bananas beat advertised ‘health’ food

Some interesting health-related news today. Business as usual, really, in so far as the best foods don’t advertise. In a (wal)nutshell, the message is – the best use for your multi-mineral and vitamin tablets is probably added to a compost heap, and walnuts, in moderation, are very healthy: Bananas Take One A Day VitaCraves Adult … Continue reading walnuts and bananas beat advertised ‘health’ food The post walnuts and bananas beat advertised ‘health’ food appeared first on pjf.

sugar tax and corporations

Apparently, corporations are treated as ‘individuals’ – a ploy devised by corporate lawyers to gain the same protection by law as individuals are supposed to have. Like many laws, once it has been passed it is hard reverse, because the corporations are protected by that law from having it changed. In the news this week … Continue reading sugar tax and corporations The post sugar tax and corporations appeared first on pjf.
