Heart foundation
« on: October 04, 2014, 06:30:05 am »
Is anyone following the Pete Evans led inspired change to Heart foundation tick and overhauled food guidelines with dieticians? I'm loving this movement.

I'm interested too. I have heard that companies can buy the tick, not sure about that.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

If you are on Facebook look at his page and the daily commentary from dieticians and health professionals that support his way of thinking. There is also a petition against heart foundation running at the moment. I'll find the link.

No problems Cookie. The commentary from health professionals is really good reading on his fb page. It makes so much sense to me. I don't follow paleo. I do avoid processed foods and try and minimise gluten, eat mainly whole foods and conscientiously try and minimise sugar. I try and buy grass fed meat, grow our own veggies, minimise chemicals etc. Next step raising chickens and fermenting.

Yes, I agree with Pete & I think that the Heart Foundation is more for raising money, rather than helping people eat healthily. Many of their ideas seem to be out of date.

I read that as long as you have $25k + the tick is yours. The heart foundation lost all credibility when it gave the tick to McDonald's.

you can buy the heart foundation tick..for $$$$$

makes no sense, we eat so healthy, use olive oil or EVOO only. no take away at all ever.
I have heart failure, and cardiomyopthy and my DH had stents last year.
Nothing to do with our diets or food at all.
My Thermomix,  Kitchen Aid, Pizza oven, Nu Wave 5 in 1, Spatulas, all brings love, laughter, happiness, and great food  to my kitchen.

I don't think you can buy the heart foundation tick, need to meet the criteria. There are products out there though that meet the criteria and can't afford the heart foundation tick.

As long as it's full of sugar and carbs "deemed low fat" and you have an open cheque book, the tick is for the taking. Milo cereal... Heart foundation approved, frozen sausage rolls full of so many numbers you don't know what's in them.. Heart foundation approved. Start looking at the foods that have the tick. It's disgraceful.

I think the tick is only a comparison of like foods. For example breakfast cereals are compared.
It is not really a good guide of whats really healthy and wholesome.
Thats why I have a TM31 and make all most all our food from scratch using the best basic ingredients I can afford!

Robyn do you use butter or what for cooking please?  How was your DH's cholesterol?  Life  can be crazy at times. I feel that hereditary  plays a very large part, but we do need to help it along.
