March is “National Nutrition Month.” I didn’t know this fact until I was searching for things to write about this month. With that in mind, I purchased a magazine from my grocery store that has recipes for Whole-Meal Salads. I’m trying very hard to eat right, but bad stuff tastes so good. Anyway, I digress. I was intrigued with the statement on the front of the magazine that stated, “Proceeds from purchases of this magazine will go to Common Threads.”
I flipped through the magazine looking for an explanation. I had never heard of Common Threads before and wondered what the organization did. I assumed it was a charity if the proceeds were going to them. After a fruitless search through the magazine, I decided to search the internet. There I found that Common Threads is an organization that teaches kids how to cook healthy. Their main outreach is to the under served communities. I believe it’s a worthwhile effort and if you would like more information, please visit their website at www.commonthreads.org.
