Farm-to-Table has become a lifestyle and “battle-cry” for responsible consumers who are seeking healthy food sources from producers and farmers they can trust. Farm-to-Table also refers to a movement concerned with producing food locally and delivering that food to local consumers, grocery and restaurant communities.
The Farm-to-Table Movement grew out of the 70s and 80s desire to push back against “frankenfoods” being created and advocates for sustainable agricultural practices that provide fresh and locally grown food. As people are becoming educated about the reality of processed food, the public backlash against genetically-modified organisms (GMO’s) and highly processed or radiated foods has spawned a new activism. This knowledge has created changes in attitude about food safety, food freshness, food seasonality, and small-farm economics. It has created advocates, activists and practitioners of the Farm-to-Table Movements out of Moms and Dads who want to give their families the gift and advantage of greater health. These are families who recognize that a healthy lifestyle is as important as a healthy bank account.
David Sandoval and Amy Veneer
David Sandoval and Amy Veneer, founders of the Purium Company, have long been advocates for the Farm-to-Table Movement and have included fresh, organic foods as part of their Change In 10 Days Lifestyle Transformation. They know that if real change is going to have an impact it must eliminate toxic foods and beverages from the modern diet. At New Path Nutrition, we embrace the Farm-to-Table concept and we buy from local farmers markets, health food stores and grocers who carry organic, non-GMO produce, dry goods, meat and dairy. Our emphasis is on freshness, seasonality, local availability, and food preparation. As avowed “foodies” we pride ourselves on creating incredibly delicious meals for our families that take advantage of local organic products…it is good for our communities and for our bodies.
David Sandoval wrote and published The Green Bible a comprehensive guide to the healing properties of fresh organic foods and superfoods for people just like us. (It also has a whole lot of fun and cool facts too!) It is a must read for anyone who is interested in creating sustainable health for themselves and their families.
At New Path Nutrition we believe the body is an amazing miracle…a gift to be treasured. We also believe that being fit and energetic not only creates a vibrancy that is fun and sexy, but it is really COOL too! We eat fresh, organic fruit and vegetables as our “fast foods” and drink delicious and totally organic shakes for easy meals or to take with us when we are on the go.
Advocates of Farm-to-Table Movement
At New Path Nutrition we are advocates for the Farm-to-Table Movement because we understand what GMO’s are and how negatively they have impacted our bodies and our communities. GMO’s are plants and animals created through biotechnology and gene splicing techniques. This experimental and controversial practice combines DNA from different species creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes. This is obviously not natural and in just a few decades of these practices being “accepted” by the big food processing companies, studies are now showing a correlation between eating these “Frankenfoods” and developing diseases and health concerns. It is no wonder that most of the worlds developed nations have either banned GMO foods or require them to be labeled. America and Canada are among the last holdouts for this practice. In case you haven’t realized it before now, lobbyists and corporations do not have your health interests as their focus. They are profit oriented…at any cost.
So, join the Farm-to-Table Movement today and start on your new path to nutrition and health. Take the 10-Day Transformation Challenge and start enjoying the health and wealth of this new lifestyle. Your body…and your “taste-buds” will thank you.
