|Chunkey Lafungga as a kitten.|
Thank you for dropping by, and taking the time to get to know me. I hope your visit is a lovely one. :-)
I am a normal human being living near the equator, not far from the sea. The weather is mostly sunny with torrential rains interspersed throughout the year, culminating in a monsoon season between November to March.
I have one husband and 11 (+2) cats. The 11 cats live in a cat enclosure built in 2011, approximately 50 feet by 12 feet. The other 2 cats hang around for the free food. You can read about my cats here.
I want to live as lightly as I can, recycling, repurposing and being thrifty whenever doable. Doable, not possible, because I have many shortcomings, and sometimes I forget to look before I leap. LOL.
We began our healthy living journey a few years ago. The road has taken many twists and turns, and at this moment in time we adhere to a Halal, Low-ish carb Primal diet. I also take a lot of inspiration from the Weston A Price Foundation.
After a lot of reading + my own experiences, I believe that:
- You need to eat less when what you eat is ethically sourced, local and homecooked
- Many of us are suffering from toxin overload, resulting in metal illness
- Saturated fat is good for you: virgin coconut oil, butter, ghee, eggs, fat on a steak, I eat all of these with relish, yum yum yum
- A mainly plant-based diet needs to be supplemented with a sufficient amount of animal protein
- Regular consumption of probiotic-rich (fermented) food is important for gut health
- As a society we overconsume biologically inappropriate carbohydrates through processed foods
- Supplementation with artificial nutrients (read: tablet forms of vitamins and minerals) can help address many dietary deficits, but it is best to take a break from them at suitable intervals.
- The Sunnah way of eating has many overlaps with traditional wisdom, validated by scientific discovery
