Hail to the trailblazers!
No one would argue the importance of nutrition, especially for children. As their bodies develop, they need healthy foods to support all the changes they so quickly experience. There is no one meal more important than the otherthey are all equally critical. For many school-aged children, most of their meals are provided by their schools and parents trust that those institutions are careful about their childrens diets. Enter Sausalito Marin City School District in California. In 2013, the environmental education non-profit organization Turning Green launched a pilot project called The Conscious Kitchen. Its guiding terms:
Fresh. Local. Organic. Seasonal. Non-GMO [genetically-modified organism]. [FLOSN] These terms guide this groundbreaking program and define an unwavering commitment to the long term health and life outcomes of our children, prioritizing ethically sourced and organically grown food.
In 2015, The Conscious Kitchen (TCK) expanded to reach almost 500 students in 2 schools in the Sausalito Marin City school district, the first school district in the United States to embark on this type of program. In partnership with the Good Earth Natural Foods School Lunch Program, TCK now serves 16 schools in the county. In addition, the West Contra Costa Unified School District recently agreed to a year-long pilot program in 2 of its schools for the 2017/18 school year.
What TCK offers for school lunch programs:
So the TCK provides genuinely nutritious meals, cooked fresh on-site for the same cost as the frozen, processed, mass-produced institutional food served in other public schools. From Executive Chef Justin Everett:
Most people dont realize that GMOs are everywhere, especially in processed foods. By embracing fresh, local, organic, non-GMO food, this program successfully disrupts the cycle of unhealthy, pre-packaged, heat and serve meals that dominate school kitchens.
The short-term health effects of GMO are known. A whole body of research has found GMO implicated in a host of chronic and even life-th...
Scientists have found that the body pH is closely related to numerous diseases.
To function optimally, the body needs to be in a slightly alkaline state, but our bodies are predominantly acidic, due to the numerous processed foods, excessive sugar intake, and the exposure to various chemicals on a daily basis.
When acidic, the body must borrow minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sodium from vital organs and bones, in order to neutralize the acid and get rid of it. This is the initial stage of arthritis and osteoporosis.
The findings of a seven-year study conducted at the University of California, which involved 9,000 women, showed that people with chronic acidosis are at an increased risk of bone loss.
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a lot of the hip fractures among middle-aged women are caused by high body acidity, due to a diet high in animal foods and low in vegetables.
Moreover, Dr. William Lee Cowden explains:
Immune cells that are too acid or too alkaline do not produce antibodies or cytokines (chemical messengers to regulate other immune cells), and they have impaired phagocytosis (the ability to engulf and destroy microbes). As a result, the affected individual becomes susceptible to viral, bacterial, fungal and other infectious microbes as well as cancer.
Alkalizing the body is essential for a strong immune system, the regeneration of bone health, and overall well-being.
The following homemade lemonade will help you restore the alkaline state of the body and prevent various health issues and diseases. Here is how to prepare it:
Homemade Lemonade Recipe:
Squeeze the juice of the lemons into a 16-ounce glass, and add the raw honey and water.
Drink this homemade lemonade throughout the entire day, and you will dramatically boost your health!
