Aussie Made: Scare Tactics Or Crucial Information About Our Food?

"aussie made"
aussie made asks why you don’t think about what’s in your food

Did you see the Aussie Made expose about what we’re really getting in our imported foods?

According to Aussie Made, if you’re not buying Australian Grown food then you just don’t know what you’re getting and you possibly don’t care about your own or your family’s wellbeing.

The consumer and business site, which claims to have been helping shoppers, businesses and indeed Australia for 25 years, yesterday launched a major attack on imported foods, quoting Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) testing results on imported foods. And if a picture can tell 1000 words, then the images on the Aussie Grown website must have an entire book behind them –

"Australian Grown""Australian Made"

The Aussie Made website states the following:

“Unfortunately, AQIS only tests around 5% of the produce coming into Australia, which means the other 95% is tested by, well, shoppers like you and me. If that alone isn’t food for thought, try this. We buy more than 5.5 billion dollars worth of imported food every year. That’s billions of dollars that isn’t going to our farmers and their local communities.

So what can you do? The simple answer is buy Australian grown produce when you can. It’s better for you, your family and our farmers.”

The message, apparently, is simple –

"aussie made food"is aussie made just trying to scare us (and do we care if they are)?

Well I guess you could ask what Aussie Made has to gain by revealing this information. As they say, this is just the facts – and not even all of them. Perhaps I’m a little naive, but the primary answer seems to be encouraging us to support Australian food and farming. Which is surely not a terrible thing?

The flipside, of course, as comedian Dave Hughes asked last night on The 7pm Project, is the question of how we would feel if other countries decided to stop buying from Australia. And considering the billions of dollars worth of food exported each year, we probably wouldn’t feel so great. Aussie Made has a simple answer for this one – unlike other countries, the standards of our food production are so high that should other countries put us to the test, we would pass with flying colours.

the real question: is aussie made all we should be considering?

I completely agree with Aussie Made that we should at least stop to think about the food we buy. Consider where it’s come from and what standards of growing and processing it’s been subject to. And if you are in fact someone who thinks about what they buy, rather than just gravitating to the brightest and shiniest goodies on the grocery shelf, then surely this begs the question of whether Aussie Made is, in fact, all we should be looking for.

Issues of food miles, possible contamination from strange overseas beasties, and supporting the Aussie battler farmers aside, one of the most important questions to ask about your food is, quite simply, what it has to offer you.

(more) food for thought

  • Is it organically grown and farmed?
  • Has it been sprayed with all sorts of ‘approved’ yet questionable pesticides, herbicides and fungicides?
  • Does it contain additives/non-foods?
  • Has it been kept in storage for months (or longer), sprayed and flavoured and otherwise injected to make it look and feel good?
  • Is it seasonal?
  • Would you have access to this food in nature; is it a ‘real’ food?
  • If it’s seafood, has it been sustainable fished?
  • If it’s meat, is it grass-fed? 100% free range?

My take?

Aussie Made is a great start, and I’m all for supporting local trade. But the truth is that once you start thinking, you just can’t stop, can you? And when it comes to what you put in your mouth there’s a heck of a lot to get you thinking.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.
