Hi Friends,

So happy to share with you details about the 3rd Annual National Kale Day. What started as a crazy idea around our book 50 Shades of Kale – has become an international grassroots effort with both online and offline events around the country and dedicated sponsors that are helping driving our mission to use kale as a springboard to start a discussion about the role food plays in healthy living.

Speaking of Parties – I want you to join us at our BIG KALEABRATION in NYC. This year’s event will be bigger and better with kale cocktails, appetizers, kale samples, a photo booth and more. It will be a ton of kale fun. Join us on Oct 7 from 6-9 pm at Libation NYC at 137 Ludlow. RSVP Now at rsvp@nationalkaleday.org.

Click here for your invitation.

If you can’t make the party, we still want to see your kale! Please celebrate by enjoying kale and tagging your social media posts with #kaleday2015

Also – I mentioned our great sponsors. We couldn’t reach all the people we do without their help. This year we have all these great sponsors supporting our efforts so be sure to show them some love and look for their products.

Even Hotel

EVEN® Hotels

These guys know how to do hotels right and they are bringing a new type of hotel with wellness in mind to the market. Look for their newest location opening in NYC soon.

Fuji Kale

I’m all about kale all the time – so I love the fact that they have kale powder that I can take with me. It’s so convenient and they even have recipes to show you had to add it to your favorite dishes.

sanmiguel

San Miguel Produce & Cut N’ Clean

I love these third generation farmers that for the second year are “Giving them Kale”. Yep – they are literally giving out over 30,000 bunches of kale to promote National Kale Day in the Southern California area.

AMDF

American Macular Degeneration Foundation

More than 10 million Americans suffer from Macular Degeneration. AMDF understands that key foods and a healthy diet support good eye health. Their new cookbook Eat Right For Your Sight has some great recipes many that feature kale!

calorganic

Cal-Organic Farms & True Juice

These farming friends grow kale, but also dozens of organic fruits and vegetables for the masses. But if that isn’t enough, they use those same fruits and vegetables in a new line of organic juices. I love knowing my farmer.

Simply 7 Snacks

If you don’t know these guys you should. They are revolutionizing the snack chip industry with great tasting snacks with a simply list of ingredients – that are also GMO Free. Besides their already large list of snacks like lentil and quinoa chips – I am super excited that they will be launching their new line of kale chips in November so stay tuned.

It’s no secret that kale is my pet project – but I know first-hand how good food contributes to healthy bodies and overall brain health. I am so thankful that I learned this secret early on and I can be a passionate advocate for kale and other powerful brain foods. Stay tuned for more brain food news in the coming weeks and months.

Eat Complete

Winner of a 2017 IACP Cookbook Award  •  Finalist for a Books for a Better Life Award

Named one of the top health and wellness books for 2016 by Well + Good and MindBodyGreen

 

From leading psychiatrist and author of Fifty Shades of Kale comes a collection of 100 simple, delicious, and affordable recipes to help you get the core nutrients your brain and body need to stay happy and healthy.

What does food have to do with brain health? Everything.

Your brain burns more of the food you eat than any other organ. It determines if you gain or lose weight, if you’re feeling energetic or fatigued, if you’re upbeat or depressed. In this essential guide and cookbook, Drew Ramsey, MD, explores the role the human brain plays in every part of your life, including mood, health, focus, memory, and appetite, and reveals what foods you need to eat to keep your brain—and by extension your body—properly fueled.

Drawing upon cutting-edge scientific research, Dr. Ramsey identifies the twenty-one nutrients most important to brain health and overall well-being—the very nutrients that are often lacking in most people’s diets. Without these nutrients, he emphasizes, our brains and bodies don’t run the way they should.

Eat Complete includes 100 appetizing, easy, gluten-free recipes engineered for optimal nourishment. It also teaches readers how to use food to correct the nutrient deficiencies causing brain drain and poor health for millions. For example:

• Start the day with an Orange Pecan Waffle or a Turmeric Raspberry Almond Smoothie, and the Vitamin E found in the nuts will work to protect vulnerable brain fat (plus the fiber keeps you satisfied until lunch).

• Enjoy Garlic Butter Shrimp over Zucchini Noodles and Mussels with Garlicky Kale Ribbons and Artichokes, and the zinc and magnesium from the seafood will help stimulate the growth of new brain cells.

• Want to slow down your brain’s aging process? Indulge with a cup of Turmeric Cinnamon Hot Chocolate, and the flavanols found in chocolate both increase blood flow to the brain and help fight age-related memory decline.

Featuring fifty stunning, full-color photographs, Eat Complete helps you pinpoint the nutrients missing from your diet and gives you tasty recipes to transform your health—and ultimately your life.

The Happiness Diet

For the first time in history, too much food is making us sick. It's all too apparent that the Modern American Diet (MAD) is expanding our waistlines; what's less obvious is that it's starving and shrinking our brains. Rates of obesity and depression have recently doubled, and while these epidemics are closely linked, few experts are connecting the dots for the average American.

Using the latest data from the rapidly changing fields of neuroscience and nutrition, The Happiness Dietshows that over the past several generations small, seemingly insignificant changes to our diet have stripped it of nutrients--like magnesium, vitamin B12, iron, and vitamin D, as well as some very special fats--that are essential for happy, well-balanced brains. These shifts also explain the overabundance of mood-destroying foods in the average American's diet and why they predispose most of us to excessive weight gain.

After a clear explanation of how we've all been led so far astray, The Happiness Diet empowers the reader with simple, straightforward solutions. Graham and Ramsey show you how to steer clear of this MAD way of life with foods to swear off, shopping tips, brain-building recipes, and other practical advice, and then remake your diet by doubling down on feel-good foods--even the all-American burger.
