List of Foods (About) Articles

NOTE: I am moving recipes from my old Catsfork.com site to this blog, so be patient – I have many, many to move. Meanwhile, you can go to Foods (About) on my old site. See also Main Menu of Diet & Health Articles on my old site.

These articles are about whole or minimally processed foods – foods you could grow in your own garden/farm, or prepare from a whole food in your kitchen. This list does not include processed foods that require an industrial facility to process.

Some of the articles reference specific nutrients in the food; however, you get the maximum benefit from these nutrients only in the whole food – not from supplements or processed foods – because of synergy in the whole food.

  • Important note about shellfish and anchovies: In very rare occurrences they can cause Amnesic shellfish poisoning in humans and birds. This illness is caused by a neurotoxin the fish/shellfish produce in their guts called Domoic Acid, which is poisonous to humans. If you experience severe gastrointestinal issues 24 hours after eating anchovies seek medical attention; especially if any neurological issues like a headache or seizures occur.  The neurological symptoms of this poisoning can take several days to occur. The illness can be fatal if left untreated. The name Amnesic Shellfish poisoning comes from the fact that it’s usually shellfish that transmit the disease and because it causes memory loss in many people. Thankfully this disease is very rare but it’s best to be informed so you know what to do just in case someone gets sick. (from geniuskitchen.com/recipe/caesar-salad-dressing-83436
