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.

Food For Change - Food For Thought film series

To celebrate National Co-op Month, a special Food For Thought film series event!

When?: Wednesday, October 17 at 6:30 p.m.
Where?: The Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 South Main Street
How much?: Free to all, so bring a friend!

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. 

Click here to watch the trailer!

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)
Runtime: 84 minutes

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!

LENTIL UNDERGROUND: HOW NEARBY FARMERS BUILT A GLOBAL MODEL FOR LOCAL FOOD BY LIZ CARLISLE

"What better book to read for September’s Good Food Book Club as we head towards the great Palouse fall harvest than Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America, by Liz Carlisle!? Start out at the Lentil Festival, our annual epic Fete of all things Lentil, then head home to the heady smells of fall harvest: the drying plums, the smell of apples on the breeze, the whiff of smoked peppers at the Moscow Farmer’s Market. Grab this month’s book and a bowl of lentil stew, a hunk of sourdough, and a glass of white wine, and you’ll be all set.

"Liz Carlisle a Montanan herself, does a masterful job spotlighting the revolutionary story of a gang of low-key, off–the-industrial-supply-chain lentil farmers—who reclaim their small farm legacy by figuring out how to stay true to their roots while opening up their doors, and their harvests, to the farm-to-table customers who so dearly want the same things. When people realize the true costs and harms of the industrial supply chain—and we’re in an exponential phase of public perception on that—they want to get and eat real local food! It’s a win-win for local farmers and those of us who like to eat real local food.

"Lentil Underground is a microcosm and model for how a bunch of nearby motley farmers took their hoes back into their own hands, put their feet down in the dirt, and said, Enough. They are a part of revolutionizing the local and regional PNW food system, and they now sell locally as well as to large companies who are committed to offering healthy farm-to-table real foods to customers around the country. It’s a scalable model that works.

Frederick Kirschenmann, author of Cultivating an Ecological Conscience writes, 'Liz Carlisle’s new book is an absolute treasure—actual stories of real farmers in a part of Montana,  some of whom found that their industrial farming practices were a “losing game” and some who discovered that locally adapted organic farming could be resilient and economically successful. It is a must read for anyone interested in the future of food in America.'"

-Co-op Volunteer and Book Club president Rachel Clark

Where?: The Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 South Main Street
How Much?: Free to all, so bring a friend!

September's film is Albatross - click here to watch the trailer

The journey of ALBATROSS began in 2008 as a collaboration with my friend, activist/photographer Manuel Maqueda. Studying the newly-emerging issue of ocean plastic pollution, we learned of a stunning environmental tragedy taking place on a tiny atoll in the center of the vast North Pacific Ocean. We immediately began planning an expedition there, and on our first trip to Midway Island in September of 2009, we and our team photographed and filmed thousands of young albatrosses that lay dead on the ground, their stomachs filled with plastic. The experience was devastating, not only for what it meant for the suffering of the birds, but also for what it reflected back to us about the destructive power of our culture of mass consumption, and humanity's damaged relationship with the living world.
