My plan is to post 3 times a week and I’m a little late. I was busy fixing WordPress pages. My second post will be about the cause. There will be also a fixed page about the cause. So, what is THE CAUSE?
I decided to give my best to persuade the world to start appreciate Supefoods more and that they become widely recognized. Again, I’m talking about regular, everyday Superfoods. So, how can western world start to eat more Superfoods and less processed foods? How can we raise awareness? My idea is to proclaim a Superfoods Day once a year and educate the world about Superfoods. Now, which day should we pick? I thought to pick some day in the middle of the summer, because all berries are available then. I mean, berries are epitome of locally grown Superfoods. Then I thought to pick some day late August, early September because Tomatoes and Grapes are in season. Or sometime around Thanksgiving. But then, I looked at the one of the main purpose of Superfoods, and that is to boost immune system. And I researched when we need to have our immune system boosted. And I figured out it’s in flu season. And since flu season can outburst any time between December the 1st and late January, I thought that we should raise awareness at least few weeks before flu season. So, I picked the November 24th to be Superfoods Day. Besides that it’s my birthday, I think that it should give enough time to everyone to start thinking “how do I boost my immune system, should I boost fat soluble vitamins that can be stored in my body, what about sun and vitamin D in winter time etc.”. And maybe people will start stocking on frozen berries for the winter, push for more grapefruit and other citrus fruits, eat more garlic and ginger, and drink more green tea.
I envision this Superfoods celebration as a global and local event at the same time. I’ll try to rally local health foods stores to raise awarenes about Superfoods (all over the world), I’ll try to rally all online health sites to do the same and I guess all online stores that sell health food will join too. I know that I succeeded when I see Google having Superfoods dedicated Day and when Wikipedia acknowledges this Superfoods Day.
So, I decided to register SuperfoodsDay.com and SuperfoodsDay.org domain and host it on my Bluehost account. And I will donate some percentage of my eBook earnings to the cause. I’ll also invest in logo and whatever is neccessary for this web site.
If anyone has any other suggestion, please comment or send me an email. Lets start this campaign!!
