Public speaking might feel intimidating for some people, but I have always felt it’s easier and feels more natural when you’re passionate about the topic. Pleased to be speaking on this panel today about #food and #publichealth at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Thanks to @cufpop for the invitation! •

Practicing mindful consumption is in opposition to decades of advertising and cultural norms that link progress with consumption. There is a key consumer tension, because to become mindful requires sacrifice (of the easier way) and discipline(for the right way). Therefore, the shift is implemented for short moments or in easier categories before they convert in totality. Check out the insights in our 2nd video about #MindfulConsumption from our sustainability report. Want to read the full report right now? Check out the link in our bio!

Feeling gratitude for the opportunity to teach a course on the politics/history/business of our current food system @pacificrimcollege ... last week we wrapped up the course with a field to @masonstreetfarm, an urban farming oasis right downtown. There is much hope to be cultivated by looking nearby for like-minded humans turning (chicken) shit into actual wealth (soil!), creating immense value through shifting the dominant unsustainable paradigm by digging in to this work! Thank you, Mason St (and the kitty Prince) for letting the light in, doing your good work, and inspiring the students to go out and make real change in the world!

¿Ha visitado Sunshine Sprouts en el mercado? Llevan una amplia variedad de legumbres brotadas y brotes. Las legumbres son una fuente económica de proteínas de buena calidad y son más ricas en proteínas que la mayoría de los otros alimentos vegetales. También tienen aproximadamente el doble del contenido de proteínas de los granos de cereales y son generalmente bajos en grasa, prácticamente sin grasas saturadas y no contienen colesterol. Encuantralos todos los lunes. °

Does your country or region have a food policy? Food policy has many frameworks & modalities, and can refer to:

Food security: generally refers to food access and distribution. Policies are primarily concerned with assuring safe, adequate and accessible food &  food channels. 
Food sustainability: generally refers to the ecological and environmental aspects of food production & distribution,  and maintaining biodiversity. Can encompass both scientific & social justice platforms.

Food sovereignty: people who produce, distribute, & consume food should control the mechanisms & policies of food production and distribution, rather than the corporate sphere and market-based tools that currently dominate our global food system. Refers to the right to healthy & culturally appropriate food. It is primarily concerned with equity & social justice. 
Food safety: the practice & deployment of risk mitigation with regards to all productive and distributional aspects of the food chain. Primarily science-based and compatible with corporate aims. Safe food as a public good is secondary to the combined goals of allocative efficiency and capital accumulation through market-based tools such as ISO, private certifications, HACCP.

Most countries and municipalities have one or a mix of several food policy types. For example, food safety is actually regulated at the global level via the WTO's SPS Agreement through the Codex Alimentarius, so if your country is a WTO signatory (most are) – your food’s safety is first and foremost mandated through the Codex, although many nations add additional food safety rules to WTO baseline rules.

You’ve probably heard of at least one of these concepts, but you're actually affected by all of them whether you know it or not! They can be a little confusing, but great to know and explore if you work in food or food service, to help expand your practice.

Happy Earth Day from Allergic to Salad! 🌱 🌍 🌼

The health of our land, oceans, streams, forests, and air all directly  impact the health of the food we eat, and as a result the health of our bodies. The sustainability of our food system is so important to us here at Allergic to Salad, and is infused into all of the work we do in our classrooms and communities.

Today (and every day!) is a great day to get outside and give back to the community! Visiting one of the many farmers markets throughout the city, or volunteering at your neighborhood community garden are great ways to celebrate good, local and sustainable food choices, as well as Earth Day! 🌾

In addition, check out the link below ⬇️ to see some upcoming events that are great for food policy enthusiasts, young and old! We hope to see you around at some of these wonderful events in the coming weeks. Thank you to the awesome folks @nycfoodpolicy at Hunter College for putting this list together!

Happy Earth Day from Allergic to Salad! 🌱 🌍 🌼

The health of our land, oceans, streams, forests, and air all directly impact the health of the food we eat, and as a result the health of our bodies. The sustainability of our food system is so important to us here at Allergic to Salad, and is infused into all of the work we do in our classrooms and communities.

Today (and every day!) is a great day to get outside and give back to the community! Visiting one of the many farmers markets throughout the city, or volunteering at your neighborhood community garden are great ways to celebrate good, local and sustainable food choices, as well as Earth Day! 🌾

In addition, check out the link below ⬇️ to see some upcoming events that are great for food policy enthusiasts, young and old! We hope to see you around at some of these wonderful events in the coming weeks. Thank you to the awesome folks @nycfoodpolicy at Hunter College for putting this list together!

In America, childhood obesity is growing at alarming rates. The fast-food industry is aggressively marketing to children and adding addictive ingredients that keep them going back for more. According to National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), a ban on fast-food advertising would reduce childhood obesity trends. We must act now. It’s time to Congress to get tough on the food industry.

This made me chuckle. Yes, obesity is widespread – quite literally! The way we tackle this epidemic is through bold, progressive change – not incremental change. Movements (like “eat less, move more”) only serve to shift the burden of responsibility away from food manufacturers and onto individuals and, unfortunately, it has worked. Many believe that obesity is due to a lack of “self-control,” when it’s a multifactorial issue.

While produce prices are on the rise, fast-food prices are in decline. For example, Wendy’s offers the famous 4 for $4. McDonald’s has the dollar menu. The list goes on and on, but there is something inherently wrong about a food system where unhealthy food is significantly cheaper than healthy food. This picture sums it up. If you can afford a recyclable paper bag with fresh produce, consider yourself privileged. However, for many families to afford nutritious food, we need to lower the cost of fresh produce, raise the minimum wage, create good-paying jobs, and vote for politicians who work for the people and not the one percent.

We cannot let the fast-food industry continue to mislead consumers with marketing ploys, like Burger King’s “light fries” (now retired). When foods are labeled light, low-fat, low-sugar, etc., people will always consume more thinking that they are eating healthy. We need to pressure Congress to toughen up on the fast-food industry. We cannot let these false claims and advertisements go unchecked.

Americans are working longer hours for lower wages. Therefore, thanks to corporate greed, they are doing what they can to feed their families. In many instances, this means purchasing unhealthy foods because they are cheaper than buying fresh produce. Additionally, families must budget money for many other expenses, like transportation, child care, health care, etc. It’s time to put power back into the hands of hardworking Americans. We need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage because a healthier America is a stronger America.

No, I’m not gud wid dat. The fact that Big Pharma is pocketing billions off of victims of the food industry is downright disgusting and unethical. And, why is Big Pharma allowed to jack up the prices of their drugs? Because they buy politicians who allow them to do it. In order to overhaul our broken food system, we need to enact bold, progressive change so that the food industry doesn’t produce mass quantities of cheap, unhealthy foods and Big Pharma doesn’t jack up the prices of drugs that millions of Americans depend on to manage their diseases. We must get money out of politics.

In order to change our food system and tackle America’s obesity epidemic, we must get money out of politics. To do this, we must research and vote for politicians who are funded by grassroots individuals and not corporate money, like the food industry lobby.

🌟It’s time for a #HubSpotlight 🌟 This is the Solano Canyon Community Garden, a five acre garden established in 1998. It provides green space, garden plots, and compost drop off for the community! 🌱 Pictured here is our Executive Director Michael leading a composting workshop last spring. 👩🏽‍🌾 Next time you’re driving 110 N keep your eyes peeled 👀, part of the garden is situated right above the freeway!

In 2017, 15 million of U.S. households were food insecure. Rates of food insecurity were higher than the national avg(11.8%) for black, non-Hispanic households (21.8%) and Hispanic households (18%). The Grocery Gap, a report by The Food Trust, examines the issue of food deserts in low-income communities of color & their impact on health & the economy of those communities. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Access to healthy food is a bigger challenge for those living in low-income neighborhoods, communities of color, & rural areas. ⁣⁣
✨Low-income zip codes have 25% fewer chain supermarkets compared to middle-income zip codes⁣⁣
✨Predominantly black zip codes have 1/2 the number of chain supermarkets, & Latino areas have a ⅓ as many as predominantly white zip codes⁣⁣
✨In 20% of rural counties all residents live more than 10 miles from a supermarket⁣⁣
✨Food stores in lower-income neighborhoods & communities of color are less likely to stock healthy foods, offer lower quality items, & have higher prices ⁣
⁣⁣
Improving access to healthy foods has a positive relationship with eating behaviors⁣.⁣
✨Proximity to a supermarket is associated with increased fruit consumption among food stamp recipients⁣⁣
✨For every additional supermarket in a census tract, produce consumption among African Americans rose 32%⁣⁣
✨In rural Mississippi, adults living in food desert counties are 23% less likely to consume recommended fruits & veg than non-food desert counties⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Bringing new grocery stores to underserved areas not only has positive implications for health, but for the economy⁣.⁣
✨A statewide initiative to bring new or revitalized grocery stores to underserved communities in Pennsylvania created 4,860 jobs & increased employment surrounding the supermarket at a faster rate.⁣
✨New supermarkets revitalize housing markets, attract new businesses, & create additional spending in the local economy.⁣
⁣
Food deserts & food insecurity are real issues that too many Americans face. If we truly care about this nation's health we need to implement bold, nationwide policies that reduce food deserts & promote social equity and economic development in underserved communities.

Over a million Angelenos live in neighborhoods where they cannot access fresh and healthy food. “Food desert” - also referred to as “food apartheid” - describes a neighborhood without healthy food options, often neighborhoods home to primarily people of color and low-income residents. Lack of access to fresh food results from historic divestment of communities of color through practices such as “redlining” by banks and government institutions, the effects of which still profoundly impact the health and economic vitality of Los Angeles neighborhoods. 
Today, we were joined by 80 individuals spanning the private, public, and nonprofit sectors at the historic Dunbar Hotel for the #StateoftheFoodDesert: Food, Equity and Economic Development, where we explored ways to fight food insecurity in Los Angeles through economic empowerment, jobs, entrepreneurship and investment in communities of color.

Speakers included Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, @lisc_hq, Olympia Auset, @super.mrkt, Abigail Marquez, @hcidla and Veronica Flores, @communityhealthcouncils (moderator). Weren’t able to join us? Head over to our Facebook to check out the livestream recording of the event. Let us know what you think in the comment section and share the video! 
Huge thank you to our sponsors @calendow, @lisc_hq, @communityhealthcouncils and Edward Jones!

All-Natural or 100% Natural is a claim we see on SO many food items today. The USDA defines “Natural” as “a product containing no artificial ingredient or added color and is only minimally processed. Minimal processing means that the product was processed in a manner that does not fundamentally alter the product.” Additionally, the label must include a statement explaining the meaning of the term natural.
✨Natural does NOT mean healthy.
✨Natural does NOT mean organic.
A bag of chips with an all-natural label is no healthier than a bag of chips without it. The FDA sought comments from the public on using the term natural on food products and I am looking forward to seeing what changes they may make on this label claim! Click on the #linkinbio to read my latest blog post about a recent lawsuit over the word “natural”!

#CharlesPlatkin moderation skills were definitely tested wrangling the feisty energy at this last @NYCFoodPolicy panel!
Borough presidents
@BPEricAdams - Brooklyn
@GaleABrewer - NYC
@Ruben_Diaz_Jr - Bronx
#JamesOddo - Staten Island
could hardly contain their passion, knowledge and understanding (peppered with humor) of the current and future state of wellness.
As a group they are embracing very progressive changes within their boroughs and are not waiting for top down policies. 
Instead they are bootstrapping and working within their communities to make change like modifying curriculum utilizing healthy food across all subject areas.

The tremendous success of @greenbronxmachine in the #SouthBronx was cited, growing food in schools then teaching how to prepare healthy plant-based meals. Kids go home and then teach their parents. A school store that sells smoothies made in blenders attached to stationary bikes powered by students. 
All are pressing forward with initiatives like quality healthy food made from scratch for students, seniors, hospitals, soup kitchens and prisoners with a focus on nutrition instead of calories to fill bellies. 
They recognize the urgency and the difficulties in the black and brown communities and taboos of changing food culture and daring to try to modify tuti’s coleslaw recipe ; )

The conversation expanded to cover meditation, sleep, peer to peer education, social services and scientifically proven later school times for high school students.

Listen for the innovative partnerships between builders and community to create signature Borough products like Bronx hot sauce.
We learned that there is no database for nutritional education and outcomes. We cannot evaluate what we are not measuring.

Most of all they want to dispel the myth that eating healthy is too expensive!

Swipe through and catch some of the lively commentary.

Spoiler alert - they were hinting that New York would create a position for a nutrition/food czar.

Who would you nominate for that job?

A couple of weeks ago, FSC brought together leaders from across the food movement to get food policy issues on the table during a lunch discussion at the @broadbentinstitute Progress Summit. Facilitators led engaging discussions on everything from food justice to healthy school food programs, with over 200 participants talking about how to get food issues on the radar for the upcoming federal election.

I have a huge favor to ask of you! If you see an ad for any unhealthy foods/drinks (like fast food, soda, junk food, etc.) anywhere in the subway in NYC, please help a fellow out and let me know! This is for a project for my food policy class in grad school. Bless you!

Our program aims to change this statistic in our city. We work next to store owners by providing them with healthy retail technical assistance. In the process, they become healthy retail leaders.

#sachickenwalk2019 was a success! Lots of folks came to see our coop and the others all over San Antonio. Big thanks to our neighborhood, Churchill Estates, for putting up with us. Thanks to the folks at the San Antonio Food Policy Council for putting this together! Gracias a the @happyhentreats rep who left us chicken treats and swag. And obviously thanks to the folks who came out to ask questions and learn about backyard chickens and gardening!

We live in a world of elimination diets telling us to “Cut out sugar! Cut out carbs!” This restrictive diet mentality is misguided & dangerous. And honestly, it’s a privilege for anyone to have the ability to willingly eliminate foods from their diet.
As an aspiring nutritionist, I do value health. But, I do not believe that health is achieved by limiting what foods you’re allowed to eat. Instead of placing so much emphasis on what we "shouldn't" eat, why don’t we place emphasis on what we can ADD to our diets to improve health. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same access to nutritious food options. A global diet analysis published last week sheds some light on this issue. 
The study concluded that it isn’t what we’re eating that’s causing diet-related deaths from CVD, Type 2 diabetes, cancer, & other causes, it’s what we’re NOT eating. Diets high in red & processed meat, sugary drinks, & trans fat were among the lowest risk factors for diet-related death. The top 5 risk factors were: diet high in sodium, diet low in whole grains, diet low in fruits, diet low in nuts & seeds, and diet low in vegetables.
I think one of the major reasons we are seeing such low intake in these categories is lack of access & affordability. As I've discussed before, U.S. policy creates a food system that excels at producing flour, sugar, & oil, but struggles to deliver nutrients at anywhere near the same scale. The healthiest foods can cost up to 8x more than the unhealthiest. Buying healthful foods is a luxury for many, even those not living in poverty. 
The article concludes policies which focus on promoting intake of what's lacking in diets may have a greater impact on population health than policies only targeting reducing sugar & fat intake. But, telling isn’t enough. Well-meaning advice to “eat more veggies” goes under the assumption that everyone has equal access to healthful foods. Poor food choices may not be choices someone wants to make, but HAS to make. Nutrition education is important, but I support the authors in suggesting "comprehensive food system interventions to promote production, distribution,& consumption of these foods across nations."
