Good Food Book Club - "Fat for Fuel"

Good Food Book Club - "Fat for Fuel"

“Dr. Joseph Mercola has been a shining beacon of health wisdom and freedom for decades. His latest book, Fat for Fuel, is a masterpiece of cutting-edge research and practical application. This information, if applied, holds the key to sustainable weight loss and enhanced. ”

- Dr. Christian Northrup

October already! Now that fall is officially here, get ready to snuggle up with an inspiring  deep-dive-look at why healthy fat is so good for your body, and how to eat in a way that supports incredible optimal health and healing. We’ll be reading one of the Moscow Food Co-op’s favorite authors, Dr. Joseph Mercola. Our October selection is his book, “Fat for Fuel: A Revolutionary Diet to Combat Cancer, Boost Brain Power, and Increase Your Energy.”  We read his book Effortless Healing earlier this year, and had more new folks come to discuss it than any book in recent memory. Some of us have permanently altered our eating habits as a result. With health, weight loss, and energy boosts to boot.

“Fat for Fuel” goes further than the simple outline listed in Effortless Healing. In it, Dr. Mercola expands on why healthy fat is so instrumental to human health and vitality, how it can trigger health and lasting weight loss, and even prevent and heal serious disease. If you’ve heard the of term “ketogenic” – essentially a way to promote healthy digestion, fat burning, excellent brain function, and living without chronic inflammation so common due to our typical America diet—you’ll  want to read this book. Furthermore, it’s a great companion follow-up to “The Big Fat Surprise,” by Nina Teicholz another recent book club selection.

“Fat for Fuel” comes as close to full 5 star rating on Amazon as any book we’ve seen, with hundreds of reviews—many absolutely glowing—and some claiming recovery and healing from long-term chronic diseases. It also has many more credentialed endorsements listed than we typically see.

Please join us to discuss “Fat for Fuel: A Revolutionary Diet to Combat Cancer, Boost Brain Power, and Increase Your Energy” by Dr. Joseph Mercola (Hay House, 2017) on Sunday October 28 from 4:30-6:00pm at a member’s private residence. Location and details will come in this month’s email reminder. 

Remember to email bookclub@moscowfood.coop to receive reminders about the Good Food Book Club. “Fat for Fuel” is available through your local library. If you are interested in buying the book, check out the area’s local used book stores or visit BookPeople of Moscow where BookClub members receive a discount.

Every spring and fall, The Moscow Food Co-op brings you free screenings of educational films along with the help of community partners like the University of Idaho and the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre. This October is Co-op Month, a time to reflect on the benefits of cooperative ownership, and the film we bring to you is one that tells the story of the cooperative food movement.

A provocative new film looks at the current resurgence of food co-operatives in America, and their unique historic place in America’s economic and political landscape—somewhere between Adam Smith & Eugene Debs.

Food For Change, a feature-length (84 min.) documentary from Home Planet Pictures, tells the story of the co-op movement in the U.S. through a combination of interviews, rare archival footage, and commentary by co-op leaders and historians.

The film examines the key role played by consumer-led food co-ops during the decades-long debate over profit-driven capitalism vs. locally-controlled economic enterprises. Born in the heartland, cooperatives were seen as the middle path between Wall Street and Socialism.

Filmmaker Steve Alves describes his documentary as “one part food, to two parts politics, to three parts economics.” Alves tracks the co-op movement’s quest for whole and organic foods, and the dream of sustainable food systems. The film profiles several current food

co-ops that have revived neighborhoods and entire communities---right in the shadow of corporate agribusiness and national supermarket chain stores.  

“Today we’re experiencing a renaissance of American food co-ops,” says Sean Doyle, General Manager of the Seward Co-op. “These are not marginal enterprises—they are successful and dynamic businesses that are revitalizing communities across the United States. People are once again taking more control over the economic forces in their lives.”

Rating: Not rated by the MPAA (but appropriate for all ages)

Art at The Co-op

Join us for an evening celebrating Co-ops!

These unique posters were designed by Christie Zangrilli, a Texas-based artist and designer who specializes in visual branding and website design. They were designed to reflect the seven cooperative principles which guide our organization and organizations like the Moscow Food Co-op around the country. Beautiful, educational, and inspiring, these posters are a reflection of all the Moscow Food Co-op would like to offer our community here on the Palouse. Christie received a BA in Graphic Communications from NYU, and a MFA in Design from University of Texas. The Moscow Food Co-op purchased these posters from the Austin Cooperative Business Association (ACBA), which works to build and expand the cooperative economy in Texas through increased consumer knowledge and inter-cooperative support and advocacy to make it easier to start and expand cooperatives.

Free samples of food and drink will be provided!
