Sherri Belton divides her time between home and work.

U-Be-Livin-Smart featured in The Globe and Mail

January 21st, 2015 / No Comments »

“Be committed to the process as opposed to committing to the end point…” That’s our co-founder, Tim Sinclair, talking to The Globe and Mail about building a company dedicated to providing affordable, nutrient-dense products. When Tim met with Tracy Hanes, special to The Globe and Mail, he also explained how U-Be-Livin-Smart sees food insecurity in North America. Because our food is overly processed, a lot of the nutrient value is getting stripped out and is contributing to the global obesity crisis. People are eating the wrong kinds of food to feel satiated. …

How to Give Back this Holiday Season

December 26th, 2014 / No Comments »

One way to combat the materialism that can overtake us all this time of year is to think of ways to help others. Sometimes that’s as simple as participating in food drives that are underway at church or at your kids’ schools. Other people choose to give philanthropic gifts by making donations to organizations they care about on behalf of their loved ones. It can be overwhelming to research and choose how to help. We hope we are making it easy for consumers with our Feed 88 Million Program. With …

Calorie Counting vs. Calorie Consciousness

December 12th, 2014 / No Comments »

If you’ve eaten at a restaurant in the US lately, you may have noticed that the calories are now listed right next to your favorite dish. That’s because the US FDA passed new regulations mandating that calorie counts be posted on menus or menu boards at chain restaurants and a variety of other food establishments with 20 or more locations. Obviously, we’re all for this level of transparency. It’s a step in the right direction for food education and will hopefully lead to health improvements for the millions of American’s …

This time of year, our immune systems are compromised for a number of reasons. We’re more vulnerable not only because of higher contact rates with germs and pathogens from social interactions, but also because of the mounting pressures and higher stress levels …

Striking Back at Food Insecurity

November 26th, 2014 / No Comments »

Last week, The Globe and Mail ran a story covering a McKinsey Global Institute study on global obesity and it’s strain on national economies and healthcare systems. It’s a great article and definitely worth a read. But something was missing. The article lacked insight into the state of our food supply — how it’s overly processed, non-nutrient dense‎ nature is contributing to this global crisis. This is the real food insecurity epidemic. Empty calories in processed foods and soda may make us feel “full” or satisfied, but they don’t provide the …
