http://www.jamieoliver.com/us/foundation/jamies-food-revolution/why – We’re losing the war against obesity in the US. It’s sad, but true. Our kids are growing up overweight and malnourished from a diet of processed foods, and today’s children will be the first generation ever to live shorter lives than their parents. It’s time for change. It’s time for a Food Revolution. The problem stems from the loss of cooking skills at home and the availability of processed foods at every turn, from the school cafeteria to church function halls, factories and offices. This Food Revolution is about saving lives by inspiring everyone: moms, dads, kids, teens and cafeteria workers to get back to basics and start cooking good food from scratch.
http://eatcleandiet.com – Eating Clean is not a fad; it’s a way of life. When you Eat Clean your body will react by losing weight if you need to lose, maintaining a healthy weight if that’s where you are, and even gaining weight if you are too skinny. But regardless of whether you want to lose, maintain or gain, you will feel better than you ever have before. ****While I truly believe in the eat clean lifestyle, and loved all the information in the book I read (The Eat-Clean Diet for Families & Kids), the recipes are pretty complex with some not so common ingredients. As a busy mom with limited time and an even shorter attention span these days, most of them were not possible for me to get together. The newer recipes may be more doable. I definitely suggest buying or checking out one of the books for all the useful information and tips.
http://www.foodfacts.com – For many years leading up to the launch of our site, the FoodFacts.Com founder, Stan Rak, noticed a significant amount of confusion and misinformation about the ingredients in everyday foods. Also, most consumers were unaware of the “hidden ingredients,” or the ingredients within the ingredients, that are in specific food items. Nutritional value and nutrient content were more of a mystery than not.
http://www.shakeology.com/osbornefitness – I’ll be writing a separate blog on my experience with Shakeology, because there is just so much to say about it. Briefly, I wouldn’t promote anything I don’t believe in or use myself. It has been a lifesaver as a busy mom, especially when I put my son’s nutrition before my own. It helps that he loves it too and gobbles it down whenever he gets one of mommy’s shakes. Check it out on http://www.foodfacts.com to see for yourself what it has to offer.
**Aside from Shakeology, I am in no way compensated for my reviews or sharing of the sites listed here. In fact, most of them don’t know I exist. My opinions are just that…mine. My goal is just to share as much about clean eating, fresh food, and home cooking as I can.
