Note from our President: Miriam Zacharias 

Why I’m optimistic about our future

A cursory browse through online newsfeeds and social media posts on the dire state of our nation’s health can be disheartening. But I’ve learned over the years that the “news” doesn’t give you the whole picture of the efforts being made to turn things around, each day, in small ways all over the country.  

One of these unexpected and gratifying discoveries occurred for me this past July. It came about from a chance meeting with a holistic healer, Jaime, who told me that her daughter, Keely, was a fanatic about healthy eating. She told me that Keely was developing gluten-free recipes, blogging about the dangers of food dyes and GMOs, and addressing her chronic health conditions through whole-foods eating. The biggest thrill for me is that Keely is just 10 years old!

I asked Jaime if I could tap into Keely’s passion in the form of an interview. I wanted to understand how someone so young could be so together in a world filled with food-like temptations, especially for kids who often have limited control over their food choices. She said yes, and I jumped.

Keely’s answers below give me great hope for the health of future generations. You, too, likely have kids or grandkids that are every bit as passionate, knowledgeable, and determined as she is. When you add it all up, the prospects have never looked brighter.   

Q:  How did you come to eat like this, Keely?

When I was little, around the age of 2, I got very sick from the material in some dental crowns and I had a bad reaction to some vaccines. Yep, crowns at 2 years old, but that's a whole other story.

My immune system became overloaded and I became allergic to 35 different foods.  My mom started making everything from scratch.  So from a young age I learned and got into the habit of eating healthy.  I am pretty sensitive, and I like the way I feel when I eat healthy.  I read ingredients in things if we aren’t making stuff at home and always stay away from food dyes, artificial ingredients, chemicals, soy, high fructose corn syrup, gluten, dairy, and GMO ingredients.  I like to cook and make smoothies. My favorite thing to make right now are smoothies in our Magic Bullet with coconut milk, or macadamia nut milk with frozen berries, cacao, and a little maple syrup! I am only sensitive to gluten, dairy and walnuts now.
