Hello again! Since 1985, when we began Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, I’ve seen so many gimmick diets come and go. Powder food and low carb are two that quickly come to mind.
Undoubtedly, my chief concern was, is, and will be how to inform people that our plan is different. We help people lose weight, true. But we do it the natural way because the fundamental of our approach is healthy eating. That’s not a gimmick.
Separating ourselves from the deluge of quackery is essential if we’re going to fulfill our mission of helping people learn to eat healthily.
That’s why I make so many speeches to adults and children. I especially love the intent focus on the faces of girls and boys when I explain the merits of reading labels and avoiding harmful foods.
If you see someone that healthy eating would benefit, please feel free to point them to my blog or share your experiences. Maybe, together we can help.
A reader wrote: “Will your black bean and seafood jambalaya have shrimp in it? I am VERY allergic to shrimp! (Which I didn’t know. A reaction to some shrimp cocktail once led to my first ride in an ambulance—which would have been exciting if I hadn’t been so scared.)
Be totally assured! None of our meals have any shellfish of any kind.
I’m keeping a close eye on a new Home Delivery customer. She lives in Texas and weighs more than 500 pounds. After calling us twice for information and talking with my daughter Paula, she finally called a third time and ordered! To protect her privacy, I’m not going to reveal her name.
Obviously, she is morbidly obese. And knows it. Cannot leave her house.
She’s tried many diets. To speak plainly, her excess pounds are destroying her body. In basic terms, if she doesn’t lose weight, she will not live much longer.
Can she stick to our meal plan? If so, I like her chances. Keep a good thought for her and I’ll keep you posted.
Eileen Spevak, one of my favorite distributors, passed along this note she received from a customer, Christine:
“I started with Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating a week ago and I am seeing results already. I pick up at the Plainfield, Illinois, location.
“I already love not having to think about what I should eat. I love not having to shop for good foods or cook them. And, since I work in downtown Chicago, I believe I am actually saving money since I bring my Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating meals to work instead of running out for something for lunch and sometimes for dinner too if I work late.
“Thanks for making all this available.”
She made healthy eating her mission in life long before anyone else did, in hopes of helping her own obese father. A registered nurse by training and entrepreneur at heart, she lives, eats and breathes everything about healthy eating and helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health. She enjoys never having to bother with grocery shopping, cooking and counting calories. Her favorite SSHE meal, although it’s hard to pick just one, is the Potato Gnocchi with Basil Pesto Sauce.
