Where to Follow
As Annmarie begins her speech, she poses two questions to the audience:
- How do you think about food?
- How do you know which foods are healthy?
After viewing the TEDtalk, these questions are useful to help the viewer reflect on how she/he makes food decisions
- Do you have your own nutritional theory? What is it based on?
- How has your experience shaped your view of food and nutrition? How has it evolved?
- What role do you feel food plays in your health?
- Try to purchase food in season that has been grown locally (food produced within in 100 miles of purchase)
- Read NGI’s Ingredient Standards www.naturalgourmetinstitute.com/standards
- Adhere to NGI’s 7 criteria for food selection. Food should be: whole, fresh & organic, seasonal, local, traditional, balanced and delicious
- Choose a balanced diet that accounts for your age, physical activity level and health status.
- Talk to loved ones about your food/nutrition theory.
