Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Nutrition: Another Reason to Keep it Real

If you read this blog or my weekly No-Nonsense Nutrition Report you know I constantly recommend you focus your diet – regardless of how you choose to structure it – on fresh, whole, real one-ingredient foods. By that I am referring to foods that are ingredients, not ones that have ingredients listed on a package.

Well I came across this article on what is called the “Impossible Burger.” Evidently it is a plant-based burger product that has a taste and texture very much like the real thing, right down to the “blood.” It is being marketed as benefitting the environment and our health. If you avoid animal foods and are excited about the possibility of a better quality plant-based product, what you need to understand is what makes this product so much closer to a real burger?

Those qualities come from an ingredient produced by a genetically engineered yeast, soy-leghemoglobin. While it is true that soy-leghemoglobin is a natural substance found in the roots of soybean plants, what is used in these burgers is made in a lab, so not so natural after all. Genetically engineered anything raises red flags for me and this definitely doesn’t sound appetizing in the least. Even more alarming is the fact that this ingredient has not yet been consumed by people and there is no proof that it is safe to eat. (Finish here)

This made me reread the ingredients on my husband's burger. Thanks for passing this on!
