Shocking Insights On The Food We Eat

The Boomer Generation Diet by Bill RothA new study was published that found eating broccoli and avocados will make us look younger! And it gets even better. Research has found that the nicotinamide mono nucleotide in these foods, when consumed at a heavy dosage, delivers these additional benefits:

  • better skeletal muscle
  • improved liver and eye function
  • enhanced insulin sensitivity
  • improved immune function
  • increased physical activity levels.

Here’s some ever better news. Americans are eating more broccoli. The U.S. Agriculture Department estimates we eat about 8 pounds of broccoli per year. This is almost double our consumption of broccoli from 1990. Feel good about that when you have some broccoli this week!

BUT…now compare those 8 pounds of broccoli to the approximately ONE TON (1,996 pounds) of food we individually eat each year.

Some shocking insights on what we consume!

Even thought we are eating more healthy foods like broccoli we are still in a national weight crisis. Here are the facts that explain why:

  • We eat about a TON of food every year!
  • We consume 630 pounds of diary products. We are talking about milk, cheese, and ice cream. That represents 31% of the ton of food we eat annually.
  • The good news is that we eat 415 pounds of vegetables. The bad news is that most of that is corn and potatoes. Think french fries and corn on the comb slathered with butter. Not good for our health and weight loss.
  • We eat an equal amount of meat and grains. We consume 197 pounds of grains (bread) and 185 pounds of meat (beef, chicken, pork).
  • We consume almost as much sweetener as grains and meat! We consume 141 pounds of sweetener. Think soda.

Green Giants Provide That Going Green Win Customers

Green Giants by Freya Williams with Earth 2017 green business coach Bill RothOur 21st century economy is being reshaped by consumers searching for “in me, on me and around” solutions. Examples of this consumer activism abound. Fast food restaurants like McDonalds confront stagnate revenues as consumer search for foods that deliver on taste, price and health. A recent Gallup poll found that 73% of Americans want a strong emphasis on renewable energy. This compares to only 21% of Americans who feel the emphasis should be on fossil fuels. One manifestation of this consumer shift is that solar consistently represents over 50% of new generating capacity in the U.S.

The millennial generation is a key force driving the reshaping of our economy. The millennial generation is increasingly displacing the boomer generation in the workforce and buying power. Millennials place an increased emphasis on business social responsibility in deciding what to buy and who to work for.

The cumulative impact of these mega trends is a multi-trillion dollar global Green Economic Revolution. A new generations of green companies are emerging. These companies are using innovations in clean tech, organic agriculture, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things to deliver products that align value with values. Think autonomous cars, net zero energy buildings and farm-to-fork restaurants as examples of how sustainability innovation is reshaping our economy, the environment and individual businesses.

The question is how does your business harvest this growth opportunity? Continue reading
