Say No to Waste

Excerpt from my book

I am a mission marketer of Beyond Organic because I believe that when you change your diet, you can change yourself and the world. It’s true. Do you know how much food is being wasted here in the U.S? I think it is 40-50%, a statistic that should alarm us, yet we keep ordering and making too much food. Either we stuff ourselves or end up with leftovers that often end up in the trash. That’s why there is hunger in our country when there is enough food for everyone. If each of us commit to eating just enough to feel 70-80% full to be healthy, wait 20 minutes or so before we ask our bodies if there is still a sensation of hunger and drink more water because we know that thirst often feels like hunger, then not only will we be healthier, but we get to empower others by our examples. There is no need to argue with them or tell them what to do. They will get that you are serious about transforming yourself, your life and the world. You will be the change they wish to see in themselves, so on and so forth. I don’t care whether you buy their products or not. When I love something, I tell people about it.
