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.

  • 1/3 c frozen organic blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana (sliced), 1-2 T ground flaxseed, small handful of chopped raw walnuts, and a little fresh ground cinnamon. Fill with cold unsweetened almond milk and stir until everything is frosty and delicious. Great for breakfast, sweet enough for dessert or perfect for a cool, healthy and nutritious snack on a hot summer day! #healthykids #healthyworld #changeyourdiet #changeyourlife #TheNoblePathFoundation

  • The only thing better than spotting TNPF shirts around town is seeing them on the young ones living the lifestyle we are trying to promote! Eva limits her added sugars, eschews processed junk foods and likes to get her regular workouts in on the courts and in the gym with Cindi. Makes our hearts happy, for sure! #healthykids #healthyworld #forkdisease #TheNoblePathFoundation

IVC was also the first college to have both the Men’s and Women’s teams ranked number one at the same time - an honor no school in their division has ever held before. Read more of Ross' amazing accomplishments and learn how he inspires his team to practice healthy habits by being a living example of solid nutrition and lifestyle choices! Go Ross! #TheNoblePathF...
