Every personal goal or project starts with “a vision”. For Shapely Foods, that vision has been an evolving process to understand both life and science.
The concept behind Shapely Foods began when I was a child. My mother described that process best when she says, “As a young child, she would go to school and learn things about food, watch movies about poverty, read library books and ask her doctors questions such as; where food came from, how it was processed or animal cruelty. Her goal has always been to find a way to feed the world, stop world hunger and provide proper nutrition.” According to mother, my vision of finding a cure to feed the world and seeking like minded people who share my vision, has never changed.
What has changed is nutritional science. In the past, nutritional facts and dietary practices were based on intuition and common sense. To get the most out of life, or to improve the quality of life, we must discard what we believe to be common beliefs about nutrition. In order to be healthy, we must learn how to “eat to live” and not “live to eat.”
According to research¹ conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), thousands of preventable deaths occur each day in the United States as a direct result of improper eating habits.
So how do we reclaim our health?
As a nation we need to change the way we think about, talk about and execute health and weight-management programs². In order to do this, we need to understand the elements of food³ and how proper digestion is vital. Despite what fad diets٠ and marketers would have consumers believe, we need a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fat, fiber, vitamin and minerals to sustain a healthy body.
After thirteen years of research and helping numerous of people achieve their personal goals, I developed a keen understanding of life science in its simplest form. Because of scientists, we have advanced our understanding of how the natural world works. Shapely Foods understands life science and how this process improves upon our quality of life.
