Feeding Our Children
I wrote to you last week about eating the Ketogenic diet and my health results one year on. I was planning to follow up this week with all the specifics, typical meals, total carbs etc. In the meantime though the issue of child poverty in the UK has been highlighted so I'm going to leave Keto until next week.
A woman I love and follow called Glennon Doyle says
There is no such thing as other people's children.
When I heard her say this I got goosebumps because it rings so true. When I set up Eat Live it was part of our mission from day one to give a portion of our revenue to Action Against Hunger which is a grassroots charity working to feed malnourished children in the world's poorest countries. I do not want to live in a world where children go hungry and the fact that it is happening on our doorstep in a country where we have excess is appalling and especially worrying given our economy isn't likely to be improving any time soon.
We recently made our seasonal donation to Action Against Hunger and this season will be giving the same amount to End Child Poverty a charity based here in the UK that is addressing this issue in our own country. When you buy our food I want it to be an investment in your health and also an investment in the kind of world we want to live in. If you'd like to donate too here's the link
