It is with a combination of melancholy and hopeful optimism that we bid a fond farewell to our office on El Camino Real today. After five years, the building has changed owners and we will be looking for a new spot to call our home. So much has changed since 2015 - our Noble Path Foundation family and awareness programs have grown exponentially and the connections we’ve established through our annual HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS, Battle of the Gyms and Battle of the Schools has blossomed into a “fitfam” of gyms, athletes, educators and schools that is unparalleled in Orange County.

That being said, we have only begun to hit our stride and are excited and anxious to get back in front of the kids, sports teams and youth organizations as soon as possible.

On behalf of all of us here at The Noble Path Foundation, we hope you are finding ways to survive and thrive during these crazy and trying times. Don’t forget to take some time for a little self care and make sure you and your families are prioritizing health by nourishing your bodies with REAL food!

We’ll see you soon! Peace & Health ~ Cindi

Carrots are jammed with a wealth of nutrients, and medium-sized ones are only 25 calories. Standard orange carrots contain vitamin A, and the other hued carrots are equally healthy. Here’s a brief break-down:

* Orange: Beta and alpha carotene pigment. This promotes vitamin A production by the body, which is essential for healthy eyes.
* Purple: Anthocyanin, beta and alpha carotene pigment. Purple carrots typically have an orange core, and their pigment-related nutrients may provide additional vitamin A and prevent heart disease.
* Red: Lycopene and beta-carotene pigment. Lycopene is the same red pigment that gives tomatoes their deep color and is linked to a lower risk of certain cancers, such as prostate cancer.
* Yellow: Xanthophykks and lutein. Both are linked to cancer prevention and better eye health.
* White: The nutrients don’t come from the pigment but from the fiber, which promotes healthy digestion.

Another plus — kids tend to be a bit more adventurous than their parents and willing to give purple carrots a try, and anything that helps children to enjoy vegetables more shouldn’t be ignored. Provide a side of vegan (since it’s #meatlessmonday) ranch for dipping and they’ll disappear faster than you can make em!

Melissa A. Mathes, MPH, RDN, CSSD is the Registered Dietician Nutritionist (RDN) for The Noble Path Foundation and those other letters behind her name represent a Masters Degree in Public Health (MPH) and a Certification Specialization in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). The CCSD certification is highly regarded by the United States Olympic Committee and the National Collegiate Athletic Association. It requires five years of experience working as an RDN, as well as 2,000 hours of documented dietetic practice with athletes. As recently as 2012 only 1% of all the active RDNs in California had earned this qualification. In addition to specializing in sports nutrition, she has a Level II Certificate in Obesity and Weight Management in conjunction with medical nutrition therapy counseling.

If it sounds like we're bragging... guilty as charged! We are so lucky to have her unique blend of expertise to help guide our nutrition policies and on top of all that knowledge, she also happens to be a super duper wife, mother, friend and all-around lovely human!

For some great nutrition tips and recipe ideas, follow her here on Fb at Total Nutrition Counseling or on her website totalnutritioncounseling.org. Thanks Melissa!!!
