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 heal...
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 giv...
The more yellow the rind, the riper the pineapple. A golden color from top to bottom is perfect. If yours is too green, place it upside down on its leaves, which supposedly helps it ripen evenly and more quickly! 🍍🍍🍍 #funfoodfactsfriday #eatmoreplants #fruitsandveggies #forkdisease #nourishtoflourish #healthykids #healthyworld

Now more than ever, a healthy diet including fresh fruits and vegetables is important for maintaining a strong immune system. This can be problematic for those of us trying to avoid supermarkets and grocery stores for who knows how long.
GOOD SEEDS is a bi-weekly local delivery service, created by my friend Ron Castruita, who was the founder and owner/operator of HANSON’S Market here in San Clemente.
Details are above, but basically you have your choice of either fresh fruit or vegetable boxes, handpicked with Ron’s expertise from the L.A. Produce Market, one of the largest and best wholesale markets in the country. There’s still time to get in on this Friday’s delivery if you act now. DEADLINE FOR FRIDAY DELIVERY IS 6PM WED! Please text or email him at email@example.com or 949-370-2408. THANK YOU @ronstagrammed and please be safe and stay healthy everyone!

The WIC Program, or Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, is run by the Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service. It was created to provide nutritious food to low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, as well as infants and children up to 5. Participants receive checks or vouchers from state-run programs to purchase specific foods each month and participating grocery stores will place WIC labels next to products on their price tags to confirm they are approved under the program.
When shopping, look for the WIC symbol and if it's there, please get something else. People who use WIC to feed their kids can't switch to another brand or kind of food. If a store runs out of WIC-approved options, they will go home empty-handed. Your consideration and compassion will help those in need. THANK YOU!
