New Chapter Leader – Valerie Stegemoeller – NW Houston

A colleague my husband met on a business trip inadvertently set us on the path to finding true health. My husband and I were both quite athletic growing up, and the extent of our knowledge of eating healthy consisted of the low-fat, low-carb, calories in-calories out mantra. Eat a little, work out a lot. When we moved to Houston to work at a start-up alternative energy investments group, we had lots of stress and little time to plan meals or work out. It took a large toll on our bodies and we did diet after diet trying to get back to feeling healthy and whole.

FDA’s proposed food safety regulations pose significant problems for sustainable farmers

Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

The FDA’s proposed food safety regulations pose significant problems for sustainable farmers, food producers, and food hubs across the country.

Under the proposed regulations, many farmers will be forced to comply with high-cost, industrial-scale regulations, and they will be unable to use traditional, sustainable growing practices. Food hubs and local food businesses will be forced to deal with costly and burdensome paperwork. Ultimately, consumers will face increased food prices and reduced availability of locally and sustainably produced foods.
