I returned from a horseback riding tour of Transylvania 3 weeks ago. I sell riding tours for a living thus the trip.

I can't tell you how great I felt over there, and this was eating bread, yogurt and jam, and drinking wine, among other things. If I do the same stuff here, I suffer.

Transylvania is very "2 centuries ago," so I know they just don't do things to their food like we do here. It was just very interesting.

Obviously, galloping across Transylvania, I am not too sick. I definitely have Lyme & co remnants, though. I eat organic, it's still not the same.

It looks a great experience¨
I sent you a PM.

I guess, we cook more than you guys in the States?

In some places, cooking home daily is still normal.

Veggies and fruits, and non-processed foods are still being used, even if less and less (specially in restaurants, that prefer to buy more and more industrial preparations....)


Husband always says it's hard to find veggies in the US - I mean, when he travels, he has to sort of go for veggie hunt or he feels bad after eating out so many times...

He said, 'we think it's common place to eat salads or fresh veggies, but there in the States, I had trouble finding them (as a foreigner)'.


I guess you are the champions of spraying toxins in the air (chemtrails),

... the champions of OVER consumption (so all the garbage is burned or dumped and ends up in the air, water, food chain),

plus the champions of overuse of toxins in food production...

.. then champions of processed foods!


That is why here looks like old life style!! [Big Grin]


We are unfortunately copying all the American bullsh... production, business models, pharma and agro corporation models, so ...

No worry, we'll catch up soon!!! [bonk]

Add electrosmog in great amounts, well... it can't go better.

During your horse riding, I don't think you got a lot of electrosmog exposure either.

In the US, we have GMO's and tons of chemicals in our food. It's REALLY bad.

Yes, I have found the same thing. I can eat whatever I want in Europe, but here I have trouble with grains. Blue corn is fine, but other grains cause me to be bloated and gluten causes more trouble than that.

I cook at home and eat tons of veggies and I do not eat processed food, it's all fresh. So for me, it's not because I'm eating differently here than there. In fact, both times I was there, I didn't eat as "good" as I eat here.

Once I was in Germany and at breaded schnitzel several times a week. I also had lots of apple streudel. Almost every day I'd have a pretzel and latte for breakfast.

I was in Italy for two weeks and ate pasta almost every day. I ate gelato. Cappucinos.

So I went away from my strict diet here while I was gone and had no problems at all.

I think it's all the GMO. Many think people complaining against GMO are complaining against the genetic modification, but that's not the only problem. The genetic modification makes the pest control built in (if it kills bugs, is the food good for us?), but the other problem is the GMO is Roundup ready. That means they're covering that food in Roundup. So toxic.

A lot of the chemicals in our food are not allowed in Europe.

Hi Brussels,

I think your husband might be right generally, if you are traveling and have to just eat at restaurants and fast food. But I, like sixgoofykid, eat vegetables - not hard to find - they are abundant in grocery stores - I go to our local coop, and farmers markets in the summer. I think what's different is all the other things that I ate in Europe, that I dare not eat in the U.S.

It was such an eye opener. My friend was like "you can get stuff like that here." No, really, you can't. IT'S DIFFERENT.

I had schnitzel and lots of sausages, bread every day - for breakfast and lunch, dessert every night (how could you say "no", they think you are crazy!) and wine and their local schnapps even. Felt great!

Great to know you guys are cooking real food!

Yep, I guess the main problem were restaurants. He could not find a lot of veggies and salads, I suppose?

Well, Romania is less 'developed' in the GOOD sense. I mean, they are not as industrial like here, in Western Europe.

So probably, their sausages, wheat, milk, eggs etc are less industrialized than here, in Switzerland and Germany / France / Belgium / UK.

Sausages here are not 'radioactive', but probably, not that far from being!!! [Smile]

when I read the list of preservatives and additives inside a Swiss or German sausage... I really lose will to buy them.

If they were done the old ways, I guess, we could eat them!?

Here is the list of common additives in Sausages here. 3 whole pages....

List of additives in GErman sausages

I suppose Romanians use less additives YET.

If they want to follow the trend, they'll catch up too sooner or later, UNFORTUNATELY.

Restaurants are a real problem. Most restaurants get their food frozen from factories instead of making it in house. You have to go to an independent restaurant to get real food made from scratch, or a high end restaurant. Either way, it's expensive.

And a lot of restaurants serve few vegetables.
