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.

  • Let’s stop this mentality of “a pill for every ill” and focus on PREVENTION vs. treatment. Medicine is SICK care. FOOD is HEALTHcare. #forkdisease #healthykids #healthyworld #TheNoblePathFoundation

  • Sometimes adults think they know more than children. But children are often closer to the truth. Have you ever noticed how quickly they can let go of resentments? How free they are of prejudice? Have you ever noticed how well the children listen to their bodies? People often tell me that talking to kids won’t do any good unless we speak to their parents as well but I truly believe that the children will be our champions of change. Their minds are open. They get it. They really do. #healthykids #healthyworld #TheNoblePathFoundation (Photo: LJHolloway)

  • Some inspiration for your #MeatlessMonday... Meet Kendrick Farris, one of Sports Illustrated’s Fittest Athletes of 2017. A three-time Olympian, Farris was the only American male competing in weightlifting at the games in Rio last year. The 187lb Farris is – you’ve guessed it, vegan. He credits the plant-based diet with making him leaner, more explosive and more powerful. #plantbasedpower #veganathletes #healthyherbivore 🌱💯🇺🇸🏋🏾❤️💪🏼

  • A family member living in London snapped this photo and it clearly demonstrates how a picture is worth a thousand words. The Standard American Diet has become exactly that... S.A.D. 😢 #changeyourdiet #changeyourlife #forkdisease #healthykids #healthyworld #TheNoblePathFoundation

Let your kids enjoy their sweet treats tonight and then place the rest on the porch outside so the Great Pumpkin can exchange them for something fun and healthy because s/he cares about kids and doesn’t want them to get sick from eating too much candy!!! (Just like the Tooth Fairy... we thought it was worth the shot! Haha!) #happyhalloween #sickfromsweets #eatmoreveggies #healthykids #healthyworld
