Question: I am in love with Mighty Lear Organic English breakfast tea, but none of the stores in my area carry it. I am not willing to pay the exorbitant shipping fees, so I am forced to find an alternative brand. Any suggestions?

There are a number of tea companies that sell organic English Breakfast blends; you can see a listing of them on my tea site, using the following search: http://ratetea.net/search/?only=tea&styl... -- but most of these aren't widely-available teas; in fact, no one has reviewed them yet on my tea rating website, so it's likely they're not very mainstream or well-known. The brands that I see that are probably most available is Wegmans (if you live near one), Stash (available in most supermarkets--but they might not stock that particular tea) or Equal Exchange (available in some health food stores and stores specializing in fair trade goods). If you can't find a straight English Breakfast blend, you may want to try to make your own blend out of straight black tea. I have a page describing what makes English Breakfast taste the way it does: http://ratetea.net/style/english-breakfa... If I were to try to make my own English Breakfast blend, I would probably use a blend of Assam ( http://ratetea.net/style/assam/31/ ) and Ceylon ( http://ratetea.net/style/ceylon-black-tea/69/ ). Using more Assam will make it taste stronger like Irish Breakfast. So you could try to look for Assam or Ceylon teas. Also, some companies have cheap shipping. Upton Tea Imports has a flat rate of $4.20 for domestic shipping in the US. Their prices are also very reasonable; they sell an organic English Breakfast and also have a huge selection of inexpensive Assam, Ceylon, and other black teas. They sell only loose tea, but you will really get better tea if you buy loose-leaf so it's worth getting into. Good luck!

Royal Canin is a low quality dog food. California Natural is actually a food designed for dogs with food allergies, but it's still a high quality food. It's put out by a company called Natura. Natura puts out a lot of high quality dog foods, including Innova. Not all pet food is made equally. A lot of it is full of corn, by-products, dyes, unhealthy preservatives, filler grains and all sorts of nasty stuff. A lot of pet food companies are perfectly happy to the dump cheap leftovers and things that aren't safe for human consumption (from human food processing plants) into their foods. Will it kill your dog? No, it has to be nutritionally complete and safe to even be marketed. Is it healthy? Not by a long shot. Corn is a low quality ingredient you never want to see in your pet food. Corn and low quality grains are two of the biggest culprits when it comes to food allergies in our pets. Thankfully, there are some excellent dog foods being made these days that include organic, human grade ingredients rather than trash not fit for human consumption. Examples of low quality foods to avoid: Anything you can find in a grocery store will be low end, Purina, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Pedigree, Kibbles n' Bits, Beneful, Ol'Roy. Examples of high quality foods to look for: Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold, Canidae All Life Stages, Fromm Four Star, Merrick, GO Natural, Nature's Variety Prairie, Nature's Logic, Artemis Fresh Mix, Timberwolf Organics. Although the high quality foods are more expensive, you're getting what you're paying for. Less filler material means more concentrated nutrients... this means you typically need to feed far less of the high quality food than you would of the low quality one. Which also means less poop! Seriously on a budget? Two of the most affordable of the higher quality foods would be Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul and Canidae All Life Stages. Before following your vet's food recommendation, keep in mind that vets get /very/ little nutritional training during their schooling. Besides that, what training they /do/ get is usually sponsored or taught by... you guessed it, the crappy pet food companies! They also often get kickbacks from the companies for pushing these products at their clinics (Science Diet, Royal Canin etc.) A great option is to go with an entirely grain-free diet. Many of the high quality foods now put out grain-free formulas. Some good grain-free diets include: Innova EVO, Wellness CORE, Blue Wilderness, Nature's Variety Instinct, Orijen, Horizon Legacy, Merrick Before Grain, Canidae Grain Free All Life Stages, Fromm Surf & Turf, Now!, Sold Gold Barking At The Moon, Ziwipeak, and Taste of the Wild. Some pretty decent foods can even be found in common pet stores. Petsmart carries Blue Buffalo products (such as the excellent grain free diet Blue Wilderness). Petco carries Wellness, Solid Gold, Natural Balance, Eagle Pack Holistic Select, Blue Buffalo, Castor & Pollux Organix, Pinnacle, and Halo. If you can't find a food, most of the high quality dog food brands have websites with store locators on them that will help you find the store closest to you which supplies their products. Simply type the dog food brand's name into Google, go to their website, and type your zip code into their store locator. Another option, if you can't find anywhere around you that sells good foods, is to order your pet food online. Here's an excellent place to do so: http://www.petfooddirect.com/store/ Remember that foods should be switched gradually (mixing the new slowly in with the old over the period of about week or so), especially when switching to a higher quality one, so as not to upset tummies. For example: Days 1 & 2: 75% old food, 25% new food Days 3 & 4: 50% old food, 50% new food Days 5 & 6: 25% old food, 75% new food Day 7: 0% old food, 100% new food Another option for feeding dogs is to feed raw. This is something that should be thoroughly researched before being attempted: http://www.rawfed.com/ (RawFed) http://www.rawlearning.com/ (Jane Anderson's Raw Learning Site) http://rawfeddogs.net/ (Raw Fed Dogs) http://www.rawmeatybones.com/ (Raw Meaty Bones) http://rawfed.com/myths/preymodel.html (Raw Prey Model Diet Vs. BARF Diet) http://www.rawfed.com/myths/index.html (Myths About Raw Feeding) Also remember that freefeeding (leaving food down) is the fast lane to canine obesity. Make sure to have scheduled feeding times based on the feeding instructions on your dog's food.

Bulldogs CAN be healthy. My oldest Bulldog is 9 years old & has never been to the vet for anything but shots. She is not inbred & I take proper care of her. I am sure that if a bulldog is bred well, understood & cared for correctly they can be very healthy. I feed my Bulldog Innova. Royal Canine is **** food. I will never in my life understand why Big Bulldog sites recommend it when they are supposed to be all knowing & helping the breed. Many Bulldog breeders have know idea they aren't feeding their Bulldogs good food. Someone told them to feed Royal Canine so it must be good, yeah right! Innova has a low enough protein amount for a bulldog & has a higher amount of veggies & eggs. Innova can be a little hard to find but I looked at the site you listed & they have a link on where to find Innova link http://www.champbulldogs.com/foods.htm http://www.champbulldogs.com/care.htm

Melle Originally Answered: Which is worse: non organic meat, non organic produce, non organic grains, or non organic dairy products?
It's a tie between non-organic meat and non-organic dairy products.. well personally, I just wouldn't eat meat or dairy in general, but it would have to come down to those two. I think it's okay to eat non-organic fruit as long as it's something you can peel. I wouldn't worry too much about vegetables either. As far as grains go, brown rice and ezekiel bread never fail. I wouldn't buy anything else, even if it's marked with "USDA Organic".
