Awareness Pledge 2017-01-06T05:04:35+00:00
  • I, solemnly and sincerely pledge to...
    • Do my best to adhere to the AHA’s (American Heart Association) and WHO’s (World Health Organization) daily recommendations for the maximum amounts of added sugars, which are 12 g. (3 tsp.) for young children, 24 g. (6 tsp.) for women and 36 g. (9 tsp) for men.
    • Read nutrition labels carefully, noting there are over 50 aliases for sugar that may be listed on the ingredients list. If SUGAR (or any of its pseudonyms), is one of the first three ingredients, I will consider a healthier alternative.
    • Reduce the amount of highly processed foods in my diet and the diets of my children and family ­ by purchasing, buying, growing, preparing and eating REAL food for myself and others whenever possible.
    • Eliminate liquid sugar beverages like soda and pre­sweetened drinks and reduce the amounts of juice my family drinks, opting instead for water or unsweetened tea.
    • Treat sugar as a treat or something to be enjoyed occasionally and in small doses. Not as a major ingredient in foods and beverages eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. In other words, eat a well­balanced diet, with all things in moderation ­ or as Michael Pollan says, “Eat real food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
  • By signing this pledge I agree to help spread awareness on the current global health crisis we now face due to our food supply, where almost 80% of all grocery store items are laced with added sugars and every ten seconds someone in this country dies from a diabetes or food­induced illness. I pledge to try and stem this tide of degradation which has created the first generation of children in the history of the world predicted to have shorter life spans than their parents. I believe that if we can change what we eat, we can literally change the world ­ one child at a time.

  • I'll be speaking to the mighty kinder-kiddos at TRUMAN BENEDICT on Monday about the importance of eating REAL food. With Halloween right around the corner, I don't want to be a buzz kill, but am hoping that maybe I can convince them to eat a little LESS candy this year... Ha! _____________________________________________ If you're hosting a party for the trick-or-treaters, don't forget to throw some fun and healthy options at them as well. Most people would be surprised at how often children will pick what's naturally best for their little bodies when given the opportunity to chose for themselves. And just a reminder, THE NOBLE PATH FOUNDATION provides FREE Real Food Forums for grades K-12, tailored specifically to age groups and topics. If you're interested or have any Q's, don't hesitate to contact me... Have a great weekend Everyone!!! 🎃✌️🧡 #booaddedsugars #eatREALfood #forkdisease #healthykids #healthyworld #TheNoblePathFoundation

  • These words can be hard to follow for adults, let alone young children or vulnerable teens. The saying “comparison is the thief of joy” couldn’t be more true in today’s world where social media can be cruel and now more than ever our children are suffering from self-doubt, self-consciousness, depression and anxiety. Learning to love themselves exactly as they are and recognizing that hurtful words and actions have no consequence without their reactions to them, are tools we wish every child could acquire, practice and carry with them wherever they go. We need #healthykids for a #healthyworld, inside and out. *** #nourishtoflourish #bodymindsoul #keepshining

  • Nature-made vs. Man-made. Real vs. Processed. Health vs. Disease. It seems so obvious, but it isn’t. It’s time to reset our future by reclaiming our food. #nourishtoflourish #healthiswealth #forkdisease #healthykids #healthyworld

  • National Suicide Prevention Week is September 9th - 15th. Although there is no single cause of suicide, one of the risks for suicide is social isolation, and there’s scientific evidence for reducing suicide risk by making sure we connect with one another. We don’t always know who is struggling, but we do know that one conversation could save a life. _____________________________________________ Check out afsp.org/NSPW to find out what you can do to #StopSuicide
