Hope you are having a fantastic week! Today we are going to dive into calories and take a look at what 100 calories of real food is compared to 100 calories of processed food. Now please don’t get the wrong idea, eating well is not about calorie counting, it is about eating REAL FOOD and adopting a healthy, balanced diet for life. But I wanted to share this information with you because I think it is important to see the difference between “Real Food” and “Processed Food” and how much more bang for your buck that you receive when your diet consists of “Real Food.”
The problem that a lot of people struggle with is the lack of satiety with their diet. They feel as though they are always hungry, needing to snack, eat, fill themselves up. So they grab another candy bar, soda, bag of chips etc. All processed foods have very little nutritional value, therefore your body does not feel fulfilled.
It needs more.
It is craving REAL FOOD!
REAL FOOD is food grown from the earth, food that does’t come in a package, and the ingredients are not mass produced in a lab or chemical plant.
REAL FOOD nourishes your body, gives you energy, vitality, and a glow in your life. Your body also reaps the benefits of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
PROCESSED FOOD or food that is mass produced in a factory, packaged, only provides temporary satisfaction and taste. Your body doesn’t know what to do with the HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), food dyes, chemicals, preservatives and additives. Our bodies were not designed to process unnatural material.
So what happens when we do? Our body rejects it, we get sick, lethargic, or our bodies store it as fat because it is an unusable energy source. Processed food doesn’t fill us up so when think we need more. We have a bag of potato chips and then 30 minutes later we are hungry again. You grab a candy bar next and then a soda and the cycle continues.
The truth is……
We are overfed and undernourished.
We are simply not eating the right foods to nourish our bodies. The REAL FOOD that our bodies were designed to process and therefore use as energy and create vitality!!
I am a very visual person and have created a collage for you. (click image to view close-up)
100 Calories of Real Food VS. 100 Calories of Processed Food
When you fuel your body with REAL FOOD you reap the benefits of all the vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients that keep us healthy and fueled for life. PROCESSED FOODS derived from chemicals made in a lab deplete us of energy, satiety, nutrients and leave us hungry for more.
When building your meals make sure to have a Protein, Carbohydrate, and Fat. This make a perfect, well balanced meal that will fuel your body in a way that will allow you to function optimally. Just take a look at the volume of food you can eat when you consume REAL FOOD vs. PROCESSED FOOD. Not only do you get to eat more, you get the many nutritional benefits that will create a healthy, strong, well-balanced body.
So, the next time you reach for a PROCESSED FOOD( Something out of a box and comprised of ingredients you can’t pronounce) remember that food is fuel and to be the best that you can be, make sure that your food is fuel that will drive you through life.
Eat Well. Live Well. Be Well.

Happy Friday Framers!
Here are my favorite links from this week!
speaking of Rice… COME SEE me dance in the Rice Dance Theatre Spring Show Organic Motion! Rumor has it that Frame Director, Lydia Hance, will be there Saturday night!
I’m still obsessed with these two, featured them a couple of months ago for Links We Like but I have to do it again. Another fabulous duet featuring Emily Shock and Matt Luck! I should be embarrassed to admit this but I actually stalked Emma’s twitter.
Have a great weekend!
It’s late. I’m tired. My eyes are blurring. My head hurts. And I decide to clean up the mailing lists? Um… WHAT? But yes, I’ll claim it. I did. I’m still tempted to blame an error on Mail Chimp, but I could also make myself an eye appointment. I have the emails of the people who have joined to get the newsletter. BUT, the list itself was deleted. So basically, I have to go back an re-enter the addresses into the list. We don’t email very often, but we do have some exciting news that I wanted to let our Framers know via newsletter. Guess that will take a little longer. Anyway, if you want to help a gal out, just let us know you’d like to receive our infrequent and dazzling newsletter.
are you KIDDING me???
We are giving away two sets of two tickets to Wanderland. The first two people to suggest who they would like to see guest-curate our “Links We Like” column here at blog.framedance.org will win sets of tickets to Wanderland on the evening of their choice. We actually want to know who you think would be fun, relevant, and Frame-tastic. Check out the column, posted *almost* every single Friday. Sometimes I write them, and other times I invite very wonderful guest-curators to share their favorite picks. Let’s hear ‘em! Comment below. And go. Also, even if you’re not in the first two, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Now go and comment.
We are so pleased to let you know about the film of Ashley Horn, a Framer you’ve seen in our works Crease, Satin Stitch, Mortar, Sylphs Wrote, the series at The Photobooth on Montrose, CONTEXT, and our new upcoming work that has no title. (Did I forget anything?) She is also Frame’s costume designer. We think she’s fabulous. Not only is she a Framer, but she is a choreographer and filmmaker herself. She has a very exciting film premiere coming up.
Ashley Horn tells us about it here:
The idea for this show came from a night of insomnia that I was trying to cure with random internet searches. I stumbled onto an article about how parts of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland were written as a protest to the mathematics theories his time. I had learned that the book had many references to religion, but this was a whole new part of the puzzle. I grew obsessed at the idea of a story within a story, a contemporary and timely element living within a timeless narrative. I spent the next some weeks thinking about stories, especially folk stories and fairy tales, and their power, longevity, and elasticity.
For Wanderland, I decided to create an overall narrative and then fill it out with underlying elements of storytelling- culture, fantasy, imagery, and symbolism.
I was so lucky to have the help of costume designer Angela Alongi with the costuming of Wanderland. With a cast of 18 performers, most with multiple costumes, there ended up being around 43 costumes in total. Luckily, we were able to just pull some off the rack but for some of the scenes there were massive alternations. It was important to me to have the screen full of color and volume and we played with unusual pairings to create unique characters.
When I got Poopy Lungstuffing’s (Olivia Dvorak) album “Sorry I am Bad” last year, it dominated my radio for months. It is music that truly inspires me and invokes images of movement and space. Not only did this album fit perfectly with the film I wanted to create I am thrilled to be using the work of a local artist.
The cast for Wanderland is a ridiculously talented and diverse group of performers: Daniel Adame, Shanon Adams, Rebekah Chappell, Bethany Dickey, Andrew Farris, Kristen Frankiewicz, Angela Fry, Laura Gutierrez, Paul Locklear, Richard Lyders, Raquel Kahn, Leo Munoz, Tad Nott, Neil Ellis Orts, Alex Soares, Prudence Sun, Emma Kate Tsai, and Sabra Yarbrough. They each brought elements of their own craft (modern dance, theater, ballroom, etc.) to every rehearsal and helped create movement that is athletic and unique.
I’ve always been enamored with storytellers, especially writers and musicians. I don’t want to be limited by the idea of the narrative; in the future I plan to make whatever kind of work I am inspired to make, be it narrative, abstract, minimal, absurd, or whatever else a concept calls for. But for this specific project, I wanted to explore as many facets of story-telling under the general arc of a story line.

There’s always a positive spin put on it…but this is half-part sad!
“The Joyce Theater is buying its longtime home in Chelsea for $20 million and selling its SoHo location for about $27 million, according to theater officials,” says the New York Times. Check out the full article here.
