Healthy Cravings / Healthy Food Option

I know how unhealthy the foods we mostly buy and crave for, especially if you grew up in an urban setting.   But lately when my wife was diagnosed with breast ailment, we were told by her Doctor that the ailment was somehow the effects of what she eats and her work-life lifestyle (we were also told that emotional stress contributes).   We were fortunate that there is now what we called, Alternative Doctors/Medications.  The expenses is heavy but quite lower if we go to the traditional Doctors as they will surely prescribe operation, biopsy, chemo theraphy and the like.  I have nothing against the traditional but there is now what we call freedome of choice.  Anyway, aside from the natural/alternative medications my wife is undertaking, we were also required by her Doctor to purchase a “Juicer” so she can regularly drink pure carrot or juice from Vitamin-C rich fruits.  One of the best source of natural vitamin C my wife could have.  Below is the type of Juicer I am talking about…

With our regular use of this juicer, grinded elements were just wasted so my wife decided to turn it into something useful (I can eat)..  My wife basically turned the supposed to be waste into something called, “healthy cravings.”  Let me show you some…

Below is my favorite:

Vegi Burger. I can’t believe when I tasted it… the vegetable burger patty looks very much the same with what I buys in the known food chain,  but actually made up only of grinded carrots  and fruits.   I my self can’t believe that I am eating such.  The burger bread, tomatoes, lettuce, the ketchup  and cheese blends to the to the taste so you won’t notice that the burger patty is vegi.   Of course, I only ate it as the cheese, the type of bread with sesame seed and processed ketchup are not yet allowed to my wife’s diet as she is still under alternative medication.

Vegi Empanada (better to eat with sweet and sour ketchup type of condiments or any known sauce usually associated with this type of food)

Vegi Siomai/Vegi Dumplings (my wife made two types:  smoked and fried)

Vegi Lumpia Shanghai (better to eat with sweet and sour ketchup type of condiments or any known sauce usually associated with this type of food)

In the near future, we plan to try other recipe as well (e.g. Siopao, Vegi Donut, Cola Drink alike, Vegi Chocolate bars, Vegi Cake, etc.).

Since 2008 I am already making a business plan proposal in line with healthy food options and research facility that will develop this products for healthy conscious consumers.    It’s just that I have not yet entrusted with a capitalization and joint venture partners.    The world now is turning into organic products trading.  I am taking this seriously and I am willing to initiate a research group that will develop healthy craving products alike with known processed and fast food products.  I have consulted already a Physicist and a College Dean professor  and have come up with workable plans.  I know this is possible, I just need funding and support. Just imagine below items being offered as competitor to known brands (looks very much the delicious enticing product customer crave yet in fact, they are only alike but as Healthy Options or Healthy Cravings…

Cola Drink Alike Known Brand yet only as Healthy Options

Flavored Donuts Alike Known Brand yet only as Healthy Options

Coffee Alike Known Brand yet only as Healthy Options (blended with moringa and other organic products)

Burger Alike Known Brand yet only as Healthy Options (blended with moringa and other organic products)

There’s more… Chicken/Beef alike (vegi meat); Toothpaste, Tea,  Juice, Cracker Snack, etc.  This is no longer impossible these days as the technology is already there for support.

This could be a form of livelihood business, source of income to many and healthy options to sick and well alike.  If you are ill, you need not sacrifice too much.   If someone would entrust us for a capital or joint venture/investment, we are willing to mass produce the products for the benefit of heath conscious consumers or someone who are craving but could not eat meat or processed food.

Not The Usual Pepsi Campaign

Winds seem to blow on a different direction for Pepsi these days.  Strange, Pepsi now invites the Public to Do Good J.  The shift was in line with the intention to truly walking the walk,” as mentioned by Lee Clow, chief creative officer and global director for media arts at the Pepsi-Cola agency, TBWA Worldwide in Los Angeles, part of the Omnicom Group. 

Pepsi is known to promote socialization.  It can be seen to their previous celebrity endorsers and various form of advertising campaign.   Lately, the brand penetrated Facebook and Twitter to influence consumers to help Pepsi support social causes. 

Pepsi-Cola is formally introduced an ambitious campaign named the Pepsi Refresh Project, aimed at doing well by doing good.  The consumer public is expected to benefit in Pepsi’s intention to donate around $20 million by the end of the year through various channels as health, arts and culture, the environment and education. 

Suggestions for Pepsi Refresh grants can be submitted each month to a web site (refresheverything.com), where computer users can subsequently vote on the ideas suggested during the previous month.  As seen on “Today” show NBC, Kevin Bacon and Demi Moore appeared and help seek votes for their pet causes.  Mr. Bacon will promote SixDegrees.org, and Ms. Moore Girls Educational & Mentoring Services. There will also be paid pitches for the project on “Today” and its Web site as part of an agreement with a marketing unit of NBC Universal named Women@NBCU (also includes properties like USA Network, Bravo and Oxygen). 

As per mentioned by Lauren Zalaznick, women’s lifestyle and entertainement networks at NBC Universal in New York, target audience is comprise by female high school and college students along with women ages 18 to 54, among them the mothers “we call ‘P.T.A. trend-setters’ ” who influence their peers.  All these are in partnership with AOL, Facebook, Hulu, MTV Networks, Yahoo and Parade.  As also mentioned, Advertising for this cause will be digital. 

Coca-Cola (major competitor) somehow also moves in the same direction as it intends to donate a dollar to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America each time a visitor to the Coca-Cola fan page on Facebook (facebook.com/livepositively) shares a virtual Coke gift.  The two soft drinks giant showing is highlighting their philantrophy effort these days.  In comparisson, PepsiCo executives pointed out that Coke is capping its donations at $500,000, compared with the budget for the Pepsi Refresh Project of more than 40 times that.  Katie Bayne, chief marketing officer at Coca-Cola North America in Atlanta, responded that the “single-month contribution” represents only “a portion of the almost $60 million in cash and in-kind donations” that the company has made to the clubs “in just the last 14 years.”
