Greetings! If you’re like me, you like local stuff. Food, crafts, businesses, farmers. One of our clients (a regular reader of this website too!) referred to supporting Cancer Services as “Buying Local”. I love it! Not only are we a local agency (no national or state-wide affiliations), but we had a local artist, Mike Foley, create an awesome short film about Cancer Services called:
Facing the Boogie Man
I’ve been known to watch it through a couple of times whenever I need a little inspiration. You can’t help but move with the rap at the end! And I get goose bumps each time I watch it. We hope you are inspired by too :).
How is Cancer Dietitian sustained?
As I mentioned before, there are no advertisements on this site. Why? Well, I started out with Google ads. I thought the site would be a good way to bring in some income (as most blogs do!!). However, the ads that came up with my articles were selling things that I would not recommend. And I had no control over the ads.
The ads had to go because I feel strongly that this website should be an unbiased and consumer oriented site providing evidence based information on nutrition and cancer. End of story.
Enter Cancer Services! When I started working for the agency (4 months after starting the website), I had the opportunity to use it as part of our education programs. Amazing! But, just as everything else in life, nothing is free; someone has to pay for it.
Cancer Dietitian is supported solely by Cancer Services, Inc. a local, community
non-profit agency in Winston-Salem, NC.
Thirty percent of our budget is supported by individual donors. Another large group of supporters are volunteers. We have 300 volunteers who provide over $400,000 worth of services with their time. We love both types of Go Givers and could not do what we do without them!
Do you want to become a Go Giver for Cancer Services? There are two easy ways. Chose one or both!!
- Giving a donation of any amount will help continue the Cancer
Dietitian website and many other programs. 90% of all moneys go directly
to programs and client services! Donations are 100% tax deductible.
We appreciate any support you are willing to give!
- For readers in our local area, become a Go Giver volunteer! Here are our volunteer needs.
- There’s actually a 3rd option. Do you know of a business who would like to be a sponsor? We have many sponsorship opportunities including this site! Of course, all sponsorships are tax deductible as well and your business would be recognized. Let me know if you need more information.
Thank you for reading this site, sending me emails, encouraging me and sharing your recipes and ideas. It’s part of what makes my job so amazing!
Now… what you’re really here for… 😛
Kale Chips Recipe
They’re so easy. And SO GOOD! I can’t believe I have never made them before. What is wrong with me??
Anyway – here’s a mental picture for you. 2 dietitians (one does food demonstrations for Whole Foods in W-S). 5 bunches of greens. 3 recipes. Trust me… this was the best one, by far! :).
- Rinse (and dry!) Kale. Tear it into
pieces. Or buy in one of those packages that has it already rinsed and cut.
- Toss with olive oil and
- Lay on baking sheet (don’t stack on top of each other).
- Bake @
375, checking every few minutes until they are crisp, like chips! I
didn’t mind the little bit browned taste, but they can burn FAST if
you’re not watching!
That’s it!! And they’re good the next day too. Even our 1 year old liked them. Her first chips! 🙂
Thank you again for all your support and encouragement!
