Day 122: Food Should Do Good

Share Happiness!

I have a confession. I don’t tell everyone, but I will admit it to you but don’t spread it around. I’m a salt hound! Some people are addicted to sugar but my fix is salt. The good news, I can have a few salty chips and put the bag away. I don’t have to sit and eat the whole things in one sitting. I also choose healthy alternatives, baked not fried, gluten free, added fiber – all the good stuff. Today I got the perfect salty snack that lead me to GIVING at the same time. Yeh, I love these days as I get my fix and GIVE back at the same time.

Day 122: Give 122

Everyone in my family including my dog has a gluten intolerance. Basically wheat is a 4 letter word in our house along with a few other wonderful things in the world of food. Not a big issue these days as there are so many gluten / wheat free alternatives. I found one today that is worth searching out whether you are gluten challenged or not. Crispy, salty, tasty. All the good things in life I love!

I was out with my son shopping today and we hit the big chain store Bed Bath and Beyond. As we were checking out my son (3 year old) approached me with a bag of snacks called Food Should Taste Good. It was his late morning “snack time” and he needed something to eat. I took a quick look at the bag of snacks and the gluten free label caught my eye instantly. This was a snack we could buy with no problematic aftermath. I read the label to check out the ingredients and something else caught my eye. The breast cancer pink ribbon.

As I continued to read the package, this company has a campaign called Food Should Do Good. This company supported breast cancer. A good reminder that 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in North America. By purchasing this product and supporting this company, they in turn, are making a contribution to support breast cancer research.

I checked out their Facebook page and their next campaign is helping to eliminate childhood hunger in America through Feed the Children. They keep giving back through their prosperity. A good business practice and I’m happy to support their efforts.

Time Commitment: 0

Cost: $3.00 for a purchase I would have made anyway

My dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family we have come to learn through our own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.
