The Savvy Path

    When A Pop-Tart Fanatic Grows Up

    Founder's Note: How often will we wonder "When will I see results? Is change happening?" or "How hard should I try?"  Do you hear a tiny voice chiding, "Are we creating mini-monsters who will rebel against our high standards?  Or are we raising responsible healthy citizens?" Trusting our heart is all we have - until you meet someone like Julia.  It is an honor to feature Julia's confession as one of Savvy's first blog posts, offering a delightful glimpse of what 'can-be' when we embrace this journey.   

    When I was a little younger than I am now, my favorite breakfast food was a Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tart.

     I would pop it in the toaster and eagerly watching the wires glowing red inside, evidence of the mini oven at work. I can remember that first glorious, sugar-filled bite; the perfect balance of sweet, gooey filling and crispy cracker crust. The toaster oven always melted the insides just right. Most of my mornings began with a trip to the toaster oven. Eggo waffles, french toast sticks, those cinnamon roll things with icing in the middle… I was the freezer aisle’s biggest fan. I was young, I didn’t really care where my food came from, and I just cared that it tasted good. If I ever felt the inkling to eat healthy I would reach for Special K or Cheerios. Because those were good for you, right?

    Is Savvy for the Not-Exactly-Green?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I am a sucker for double stuffed Oreos.

    Especially when they’re dipped in milk, and it’s not often organic milk.

    I try not to get on my own case about my choices for the same reason I try not to judge other people for their decisions:  going green is a process, and we are each on our own path. It isn’t always easy. I spend a lot of time reading labels to determine if the ingredient list is safe, and I feel let down when I learn that a company I once thought was eco-friendly actually isn’t. I question when a product says “Eco” or “Green” in the name and wonder if they are being truthful?

    It wasn’t until I sat in on a Savvy Board meeting that I truly understood the complex workings of this amazing organization and the scope of their efforts. I was immediately proud to be part of something so much larger than myself, and a company that I believed would truly change the world. I knew from that day forward that I would take any opportunity to be a part of Savvy again as it was established and grew.

    I wish I had had a network like this when I started my health and fitness journey. I want to help other women just starting out to cut through the endless pages of Google results, confusing articles, and conflicting information that have lead many to give up or never start. I want to empower women to take their health into their own hands and become aware of what they’re eating and how what they’re eating can change their mood, energy levels, and bodies. As I continue my own journey, I want to share what I’m learning with health, nutrition and other allies that are dedicated to making the world and our bodies a cleaner and healthier place.
