The BIG FOOD Fake:
I think big food propaganda is to blame for our food addiction.
April 9, 2010 — Because of rising obesity rates among young people, more and more baby boomers may outlive their children.
As we embark on this 4 day adventure to spend time with Harvard economists, #Harvard researchers, scientists and visionaries, on a mission to take back human health, one bite at a time…this truth “Because of rising obesity rates among young people, more and more baby boomers may outlive their children.” drives me.
Look around you today…
Stop counting calories…carbs…fats…
Stop thinking zero, non-fat, sugar free is GOOD for you!
Why are we such a sick society? Why is my Mother going to outlive me? and what about my children? Will I outlive them? The thought of this is frightening.
As a parents we do everything we can to love, nurture and cherish our children.
Statistics my children face:
40% of Americans born from 2000 to 2011 will develop diabetes, double the risk of those born a decade earlier.
Cancer will affect 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the United States, and the number of new cases of cancer is set to nearly double by the year 2050.
The percentage of children with an ADHD diagnosis continues to increase, from 7.8% in 2003 to 9.5% in 2007 and to 11.0% in 2011
2014 – One in 68 U.S. children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a 30% increase from 1 in 88 two years ago, according to a new report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
need I continue????
I’ve watched Fed Up, Food Inc, Food Matters, GMO OMG…
I’ve read Food Politics, Salt Sugar Fat, Fast Food Nation…
I’ve watched my husband and son both suffer with chronic illness…
We’ve all watched someone we love STRUGGLE with chronic illness…
THIS IS THE REALITY:
‘We are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.’ ~ Wendell Berry
what are YOU going to do?
Parents, teachers, Drs, lawyers, rich, poor, single, married, young, old, black, white or polka dot…
WHAT ARE we GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
JUST SAY NO…
no to fake food…
no to false advertising…
no to large corporations…
no to Oreos… (you can do it)
no to Coca Cola…
If the food you buy and feed your child was killing them…would you let them eat it?
Well guess what folks….
Stop and realize – it’s not food in that “food” and it IS killing our kids. Everyone around us knows it, the statistics show it, the science proves it, the BIG FOOD corporations aren’t going to do a damn thing about it.
Cheap fake food = Huge profits…
and YES, they are laughing all the way to the bank with you hard earned cash.
If you are with me…share this post and comment. Give me your thoughts & become a part of the Education Beats Medication community.
Share more alarming statistics. We need a slap in the face to wake us from this fake food induced coma.
We absolutely CAN prevent our children from dieing before us…it starts with this…
STOP BUYING FAKE FOOD. Big food won’t like it but your body will.
RNY Gastric Bypass Blog Post: by Lynda Bock
Many people wonder why someone would have a RNY Gastic Bypass surgery.
At over 350 pounds, I was a morbidly obese person. I struggled to keep up with my growing family and I was not a happy person. I filled my days with monstrous amounts of volunteer work in order to feel like I was worth something. I wanted to be happy, healthy and to learn to love myself for not only myself, but my family. This was why I made the decision to undergo Roux En-Y (RNY) gastric bypass in July of 2001.
RNY is a fairly evasive medical procedure where my stomach was divided in to two pieces. The smaller section is still attached to my esophagus and was made to only hold 5ml at a time. The larger section of my stomach is still inside me but was physically separated from the smaller part. This part never sees anything I put into my mouth and the normal digestive juices that it provides drain into my lower small intestines via a new connection down the line.
My Life After RNY Gastric Bypass Surgery:
After surgery I was losing weight. I lost 100 pounds in 6 months! The problem was the recommended diet and aftercare led to not such an easy road. I was to take many nutritional supplements to counteract the fact that my digestive tract had bypassed part of my intestines and caused those nutrients to not be absorbed as well.
Not only was I to take these supplements, I had to take certain kinds. I could not have anything time-released or long acting no regular iron or calcium any longer as they were not the right formula that would be absorbed. Some of the supplements I was taking were only available by special order or even prescription. It was also recommended that I eat meals that were 75% protein. Protein was difficult for me because many times when my proteins were chicken or beef small pieces would basically get “stuck” in my new stoma and I would become ill. Nothing helped until I could dislodge the blockage by it eventually passing through or by the unpleasant act of it coming back up. In the beginning especially the recommend you drink protein shakes. Honestly, they are disgusting and smell horrible! And again, there were only certain types of protein I should have.
I did the best I could and continued to lose weight. My health, although in general, getting better from the weight loss was suffering in other areas. My nutrient levels became dangerously low. I ended up on prescription levels of potassium, Vitamin D, and taking double doses twice a month of B-12 injections. My iron became so low that on two separate occasions I had to have iron infused intravenously to my body at the hospital for 5 days. I suffered other medical issues as well. I developed kidney stones which after examination were determined to be caused by too much of the wrong kind of calcium. Gall stoned visited as well. I had my gall bladder removed a year or so after RNY.
I am human; my dedication to my new lifestyle began to wane a bit. Over the years, I have gained as much as 75 pounds back (currently about 45 from my all-time low) Gastric bypass is not an “easy out” for obesity. It is a tool. A tool that I found I was not prepared to utilize to its full capability. I struggle to lose weight these days like everyone else. I still have the nutritional issues and sometimes I still get something “stuck” in there. I figured the battle to get the nutrients in would last the rest of my life.
Life After RNY Gastric Bypass Surgery w/ Lynda Bock
Finding A RNY Gastric Bypass Diet That Works For Me…
It was recently that a friend told me about a new company getting ready to launch. It was a nutrient company. They promised that I could get 50% of all 43 essential nutrients and around 25 grams of protein in every serving of their products. It sounded too good to be true. Even though I figured it had to taste awful and it would be a struggle to choke it down, I took a leap of faith and became involved with YEVO International. The first products to roll out were breakfast items, oatmeal (regular and apple-cinnamon) and breakfast rice.
I was amazed! THEY WERE DELICIOUS!!! If the product claims were true, I would be able to get the nutrients into my body by the best vehicle possible – FOOD. No more pills, shots and hospital stays. Could it be possible?
I have also learned in my research that poor nutrient levels in your body can cause it to be more difficult to lose weight. Basically, even though we are overweight, our bodies think we are malnourished and can hoard weight. Maybe getting my body the correct nutrition through food could help me get back down to my ideal weight??? It was definitely worth a try. I started eating one to one and a half servings a day a few weeks ago. Due to my small stomach size I can only eat one-half of a serving at a time. So far I feel great! I’ve been sleeping better and feel in general more alert and focused.
I plan on having new bloodwork done at my doctor’s office in a few weeks to see what difference YEVO has made to my levels! I can’t wait. Come back in a few weeks for the results!! If you have had a gastric bypass or are considering having one, I hope this RNY Gastric Bypass Blog Post helps you.
For more information on my story or YEVO contact me directly on my Facebook, leave a comment below or click here and read more about the nutrients in YEVO food.
to your health,
Message from Dani:
After hearing Lynda’s story, I asked if she would write this post in hopes that it may help others who stuggle with fining foods they can eat after gastric bypass surgery. I had no idea how this surgery completely alters the diet one must eat for the rest of their lives and I can not wait to share the follow up post after her blood work. If you have any questions please do reach out to Lynda.
Is Your Comfort Zone The Enemy?
For the past 2 years I’ve been helping entrepreneurs bring their products, ideas, passions and obsessions to life. It’s been the most exhilarating and challenging task ever but I’m passionate about empowering the entrepreneur within to turn passions into profit.
We all have a story, a VALUABLE story. One that can help people, give them hope, guidance, encouragement, make them laugh and cry. Your story (your authentic, one and only life experience) contains pearls of wisdom that can be turned into productive, impactful and life changing products to positively change the world…but your comfort zone will keep you from living that life less ordinary. Your comfort zone will suffocate the entrepreneurial spirit within and convince you to stay where you are.
You see, I believe that if each of us lived a fulfilled, free life that we always dreamed of, the entire world would be a much happier place. No matter what entrepreneurial opportunity to choose, it’s going to stretch you, test your resolve, require you killing your comfort zone but no matter what there are 2 rules. DON’T GIVE UP &…Enjoy the journey!
Kill Your Comfort Zone & BE Contagious
When I first started this blog in 2010, I had not clue what I was doing…no idea if anyone would ever read a word of it and within 2 months people from all over the world were messaging, calling, reaching out and thanking me for sharing and being a voice in the darkness. Years passed and they started asking me to write a book and put it all in one place, thus Education Beats Medication was created as hope and guidance for those who want to think outside the prescription.
This online message spread around the world wide web and because of the reach, we were able to build an International team of networkers and become International distributors of the year in our previous home based business!
I simply took one step outside my comfort zone and learned one new skill and this little blog, where I initially shared our personal battle with a chronic disease called Sarcoidosis became an International brand. People were actually reading my posts? I started to realize that this online thing actually works and we can help people from around the world who share something in common with us.
Your Comfort Zone Or Your Dream?
So what’s your comfort zone and what’s your dream? Are they one of the same? Are you inspired, passionate, obsessed with something that makes you feel alive and thriving? Do you daydream about what your life would be like if that’s what you did everyday? Sure you do, we all do. I’m here to encourage you to step outside your comfort zone in some small way EVERY day! You don’t have to quit your job or give up anything for that matter…simply take some time to feed that dream and leverage every dime you earn at your job to fuel your passion. Turn off your TV and devote an hour a night to manifesting this destiny. ***Just an idea.
If you want it bad enough, you’ll do what it takes to get it!
If you are searching for solutions outside of main stream medicine, passionate about fishing and tying your own flies, have a small business or product that you want to grow and develop, maybe you are a stay at home parent building a home based business. What ever opportunity it is, take a step toward it every day.
You will feel alive. You will be excited and inspired and others will wonder what’s up. It’s so fun to bewilder people with the new you and that inspiration rubs off because it’s contagious.
So what’s your dream? What do you want to do when you grow up? How do you want to impact the world? Leave a comment and let’s dream together…

How Many Calories Should I Eat?
I just watched a 19 minute video on body building and why it’s about macro-nutrients and protein instead of calories. I could not agree more! Now, I’m not a body builder but I am a middle aged woman who’s metabolism is NOT what it used to be.
I’ve always subscribed to the “healthy eating” philosophy and never counted calories but I have friends who stress about calories, count, recount, obsess etc. They eat everything “fat free” and drink zero calorie sodas and think they are going to have a healthy metabolism. This is absolute B.S. and the food industry has taken us for a ride. It’s pretty obvious, just look at the fact that 70% of us are overweight.
How Many Calories Should I Eat A Day?
We need NUTRIENTS not calories. Think about it like this…
You wake up and eat nonfat toast with nonfat margarine, drink coffee with nonfat creamer, have a low calorie weight watchers meal for lunch and dinner and snack on a few celery stalks during the day. You are probably fighting cravings all day and going mad with temptation but you stick with it. In the mean time your moods swings increase, your body starts storing fat instead of burning it and your metabolism takes to dive but you are committed to losing that Winter weight and NOT going to give up.
This is the hamster wheel many middle aged women are on and it’s maddening.
Get off of it. Stop counting calories and start considering nutrients. You hormones will thank you!
Hormonal nutrition is so important for us “aging” woman…men too. Low calorie diets are fine if they are high in whole food nutrients. We desperately need all 43 essential nutrients to live a healthy life. Hormonal nutrients which help our metabolism, libido, aging etc. are Vitamin D, A, K, omega 3’s, and all the B vitamins of course.
As many of you know I’ve always been a proponent of supplementing because, due to over-farming, soil depletion etc. it is almost impossible to get the right amounts of these essential nutrients in our diets anymore but in the last 4 months a small food company has managed to create what I consider the perfectly balanced nutrient meal. Every serving provides 50% of all 43 essential nutrients, plus fiber, omegas & 25 grams of high quality protein which has a PDCAA score of 93+. (Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) is a method of evaluating the protein quality based on both the amino acid requirements of humans and their ability to digest it. The higher the score between 1-100 the better the body can digest it.) No preservatives are used, no fake additives or artificial flavors etc and they taste great. Oh, and they are low calorie too.
I have been enjoying 1 YEVO meal a day (Jack and the boys have too) since Feb. and we all feel better. For me personally, my skin has improved, my energy and clarity is better and this may be a placebo but I’ve struggled with a back injury for 2 1/2 years that I’ve gone to Drs, physical therapy, chiropractor etc and NOTHING has helped but in the past 3 weeks I’ve noticed major pain relief and the ONLY thing I can think is, the nutrients in the YEVO meals are what’s decreasing inflammation and helping my healing process.
Ultimately, my view on supplementing has changed. Because of YEVO, I now feel that people can get the nutrients they need in the bodies preferred method, FOOD. This is very exciting as many people hate swallowing pills and are not consistent but we all eat food every day. YEVO is currently in 3 clinical trials with world renowned Drs in obesity, satiety and brain health as well.
If you want more information about YEVO foods please leave a comment below or contact me and I’ll send you ingredients lists, and more information as well as enter you to win a free sample.
After months of research and years of wishing there was a great, quick, convenient, yummy source for needed nutrition that did not require hours of shopping, washing, chopping…I’ve FINALLY found a food worth feasting on.
YEVO International is the largest little food company in the world, on a mission to feed humanity the 43 essential nutrients needed to sustain healthy living. The foods are quick to prepare, taste great and packed with nutrition. Our family and many clients have been enjoying them daily for a month now and people are calling daily to share how much more energy they have, how they are sleeping better, losing weight, no longer having cravings, some even feel that the essential nutrition in the food has helped them live headache free for the first time in over 3 years and several parents are reporting that their children’s behavior is noticeably better.
I have to say that I’m not in the least bit surprised. After all, these are ESSENTIAL nutrients needed to sustain healthy cellular function. Our bodies can not make these nutrients, thus they are ESSENTIAL. We must get them from the foods we eat or the supplements we take and according to research the WHO says that 90% of us are not getting the needed nutrition from our daily diets. If you look at the lack of human health, I think you would agree.
That’s why I’m so thrilled to be able to share this wonderful solution – YEVO International meals. Every meal includes 50% of the 43 essential nutrients, 26 grams of protein, Omegas, Fiber and these nutrient dense meals are low in calories. They take about 5-10 minutes to prepare and they taste great!
Since you all know how much research I do before making a decision to try a product then promote it…I want to share some of the science behind YEVO. It’s really such a simple concept – we used to get all needed nutrition from food and there was no need for supplementing. Now YEVO offers this ability again and as you know, our bodies are meant to get nutrition from food rather than pills.
Chip Marsland is the pioneer of anthropological biochemistry. Chip Marsland and Peter Castleman partnered over 4 1/2 years ago to bring YEVO International to fruition. His extensive background in food science and neurology along with the power of proteins has helped him create 100’s of food products which have been rated by Consumer reports as #4 in top functional foods for nutrition and diet. Listen as he explains how everything he was doing was wrong and why.

- The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a daily intake of 43 essential nutrients for optimal health. These essential nutrients are nutrients that your body can not make. You must consume them every day in your diet to properly nourish your body. Many are overeating unhealthy foods, and starving inside because they are not getting these 43 Essential Nutrients which, when absorbed, cause satiety.
- These 43 Nutrients ensure that your cells are nourished, and they sustain health, and promote growth. The mass population is not even getting half of their daily nutritional requirements, and this foundational weakness is at the root of many of the diseases so common today.
- US Health Care + 3 Trillion attributed to bad food… World Health Care is $85 Trillion
YEVO IS ON A MISSION…
To Reverse 100 years of bad food practices.
Humans need 3 things: Oxygen, Water and Nutrients
Nutrients Help You Grow, Live, Heal.
Every YEVO Food provides 50% of 43 essentials in every serving…
- No MSG
- No Trans Fat
- No High Sodium
- No Preservatives
- No High Heat
- No Cooking
- No Artificial Dyes / Colors
For those who may be wondering what essential nutrients are and why they are important, this information may help.
- What are essential nutrients?
Essential nutrients are carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals that our bodies require daily but can’t make on their own. These nutrients must come from our diet.
- Why do we need essential nutrients?
Our bodies need essential nutrients every day to properly grow, heal, and live. If they are absent from our diet or we don’t get them in the right amounts, it can lead to poor growth and brain function in children and increased aging and chronic disease risk in adults.
- How do we provide you with nutrient rich foods?
Based on information provided by the Institute of Medicine and the World Health
Organization, there are 43 essential nutrients. To provide you with all the 43 essential nutrients you need daily, we use real foods from nature and then add any missing nutrients to our meals.
- What are some of the 43 essential nutrients in Yevo™ foods?
Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Tryptophan, Histidine, Lysine, Methionine, Threonine, Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, Cysteine, Linoleic Acid, Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Arginine, Alanine, Proline, Serine.
- What happens to me if I don’t get essential nutrients?
Without proper nutrition the body potentially does not have the full capacity to grow to its full potential. Vitamins and minerals are used by the body to maintain healthy cells. When cells are healthy, adverse effects stemming from natural aging process and potential chronic disease can be minimized.
As you can see, every serving of YEVO International foods provides 50% of these 43 essential nutrients including 26 grams of protein and these proteins are globular not fibrous. This simply means your mitochondria will love it!
It’s time to put our money where our mouth is and eat what will heal us. I look forward to getting you more information, a sample and what ever you need to make an informed decision about the foods you currently eat and how one simple change can positively impact your health.

What Are The Six Essential Nutrients?
The six essential nutrients include carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water. An essential nutrient is a nutrient that the body cannot synthesize on its own — or not to an adequate amount — and must be provided by the diet. These nutrients are necessary for the body to function properly and keep us healthy.
The WHO (World Heallth Organization) has recognized 45 essential nutrients necessary to sustain health. In addition to water & protein they include…
- Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Tryptophan, Histidine, Lysine, Methionine, Threonine, Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, Cysteine, Linoleic Acid, Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Arginine, Alanine, Proline, & Serine.
Studies have shown that poor nutrition and malnutrition are reflected by a decrease in blood levels of micronutrients and trace elements as well as many vitamins.
What Happens When We Lack These Six Essential Nutrients?
Fat accumulation is also generated by malnutrition (lack of nutrients in food) which also generates inflammation in the body. Inflammation seems to be at the base of many diseases. One of the consequences of malnutrition, inflammation and obesity is a disease called metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is the generic name of chronic conditions such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia. All of these conditions are the result of inactivity and poor nutrition.
Processed, fatty foods filled with empty calories are at our fingertips and we are paying a very high price because we eat it. Right now Diabetes, Heart Conditions, Obesity & Cancer are ALL on an epidemic rise in America alone.
Americans are the most overfed undernourished population on the planet. 70% of us suffer from at least 1 chronic disease and according to the CDC, chronic diseases are the more costly, the most prevalent and the most preventable! It is time to take back our life, stay healthy and empower others to do the same!
In addition to increased fat storage and inflammation, here are more consequences caused by the lack of these six essential nutrients…
Osteoporosis has a lot to do with high consumption of phosphorus rich soda drinks. Did you know that soda is 3,000 times more acidic than water, not to mention the massive amounts of sugar. High refined carbohydrates will increase your calcium loss through the urine. Lack of activity will speed it up.
Your pancreas, the organ responsible for the production of insulin, the hormone that helps to regulate blood sugar, will be overworked. Eventually, your pancreas won’t be able to provide based on the overhauling demand and will collapse which leads to Diabetes.
Studies are finding that as much as 70% of children 12 years old have the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries! As the process of poor nutrition continues and as your activity decreases, the arterial walls continue to be filled up and the plaque is formed. Plaque is the beginning of the end. This plaque will favor the formation of the clot that will trigger your heart attack or your stroke.High fat and high cholesterol levels will oxidize your L.D.L. (low density lipoproteins) what we call the bad cholesterol. Your liver which is also overworked won’t be able to clear up the excess fat. Oxidized L.D.L. will penetrate the walls of the arteries through the initial injury triggered by the free radicals. Rigidity or a loss of elasticity of the artery will follow and your hypertension will set in.
Keeping your intestines healthy is of the utt most importance because 70% of our immune system is in our intestinal tract referred to as “intestinal immunity”. Fibers bind toxins and nourish the growth of good bacteria in the intestines. A low fiber diet will decrease your colon acidity and deprive your healthy bacterial intestinal flora from the necessary nutrients. Celiac, IBS, Allergies & more are a result of this lack of essential nutrients.
First of all, processed foods are poor nutritional sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, protein, water and fibers. These types of foods are filled with “empty” calories which cause additional cravings, addictions & overeating.
Fortunately, our body has a very sophisticated antioxidant system to fight the negative effects of nature but it only works as long as we give it what it needs; the six essential nutrients. Trace elements play a major role as a co-factor with antioxidants in the metabolism and integrity of organ functionality.
I know, I know, pretty depressing right! But staying healthy is much more simple than you may think. It does take effort, commitment & some work but it really comes down to 2 very important things; diet and exercise.
This message is serious because it is so very real. If we don’t change our ways, no one else will. Join me in helping make a difference. In doing something that really matters. In changing 100 years of bad foods and getting these six essential nutrients back on your plate.
YEVO Is Changing 100 Years Of Bad Foods:
Do you suffer from “Food Dilemma” too? I do. Every day I’m worried about food…what my kids eat, what to cook for dinner, where to buy healthy foods, having enough time to cook, can we afford organic, can I trust labels (NO), is the food labeled organic still irradiated, what’s REALLY in packaged food and what’s been done to “fresh” food, are we getting the nutrients we need, do I even have the energy for preparing a complete meal today? Then I get into the the torture of knowing we should be eating better, wondering why I always have cravings, what is my body missing to make me want chocolate? Trying not to eat in the evening, taking time to have a good breakfast, making the kids eat before they run off to school, stressing about what my son in college is eating…and on and on…and on…and on…I think we all relate. On some level, we all suffer with FOOD Dilemma. Not to completely change the subject, but have you ever heard of The North Face company, Hawkeye, EON Labs, Herbalife, STR Holdings, Igloo, Caris Life Sciences, DermOne, AppStar….and the list goes on? I ask because I spent last Saturday (Nov 19) learning and gleaning as much as I could from the most prosperous man I’ve ever met; Peter Castleman. He’s taken 11 companies to muti-billion dollar status but prosperity is much more than monetary. Peter is the epitome of a leader; humble, generous, encouraging, brilliant, persistent, honest, loving and courageous enough to take on big food and big pharma. His mission to change 100 years of bad food is one that resonates with my soul. It parallels my message of education beats medication. His company, YEVO Internationaloffers such a simple way for us to get the nutrition our bodies are starving for and overcomes the food dilemma we all suffer with.
The Beginning Of The Bad Food Era:
Since 1911 when Crisco was created, big food has used the perfect formulation of salt, fat and sugar to imprint our brains and make us food addicts. The phrase “You can’t eat just one!” is sad but true. In the past 100 years we’ve been witness to major technological and scientific advancements yet our foods have remained exactly the same; dead, void of nutrients, foodstuffs that keep us coming back for more. What was once malnutrition has become “chronic disease” and we Americans are now the most overfed, malnourished and medicated society on the planet. Have you ever asked yourself why? Why all the disease? Why the need for multiple medications? “Chronic diseases—such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes—are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Chronic diseases account for 70% of all deaths in the U.S., which is 1.7 million each year. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also the most preventable.” Centers For Disease Control We’ve all been witness to the decline of health due to lack of nutrient dense foods. We are paying a very high price at the gain of large corporations who could care less about your health or mine. Big food and big pharma have capitalized on our food addiction for years. But 100 years of bad foods has reached its apex…we are all fed up!
This mission is massive yet attainable and many will prosper in more ways than one because of it. Peter Castleman is at the helm. His vision is immense and we can’t do it alone.
If you find yourself thinking, “Dani, this all sounds fabulous but what the heck is YEVO?” Simply put YEVO International is the largest little food company in the world. YEVO foods provide 50% of 43 essential nutrients per serving, including protein, fiber, omegas and they are just as delicious as they are nutritious.
For Example: Todays’ Oatmeal is mostly carbohydrates. YEVO oatmeal has 26 grams of protein (equivalent to a 16 ounce Rib-eye), 1 ½ grams of Omega 3s (4 cod liver oil capsules), 11 grams of fiber (2 cups of Broccoli) and provides 50% of the 43 Essential Nutrients.
YEVO will launch with the most important meal of the day, breakfast and release additional meal options soon thereafter. Options like sauces, soups, mac-n-cheese, red beans & rice, and many more. These foods are simple to prepare, quick meals which simply require water but I love to cook so I will be using them to enhance the nutritional value of my most favorite (and not so healthy) recipes as well.
Enjoy this quick clip of my boys first taste
YEVO is currently in prelaunch so customers will be able to order as of Feb. 1 2015 when YEVO International officially launches. Right now we are looking for leaders to start taking this mission, message and solution to the masses. Remember changing 100 years of bad foods is a person to person mission and opportunity. Who is with me? Who hears this call? Who is in a FOOD dilemma every day? Who wants to be the change? Who has a desire to help others? Who?
