Kourtney Kardashian might be in the middle of the crazy, fame-seeking reality world. But, this pregnant mother of two is surprisingly down-to-earth.
The 35 year-old is big on natural health and is a fan of Ayurvedic cooking. Plus, when it comes to feeding her family, sheÃ¢â¬â¢s all about organic, wholesome foods.
So, it make sense the eldest Kardashian sister teamed up with Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a group devoted to promoting a plant-based diet for overall health and wellness. To mark next weekÃ¢â¬â¢s National School Lunch Week, Kourtney is helping PCRM award their 2014 Golden Carrot Award to schools that score high grades for their menu packed with fresh fruits and veggies.
Kourtney wrote a letter to Lincoln Public Schools in Nebraska to applaud their addition of vegan options, such as black bean chili and veggie burgers to their school lunch line.
Ã¢â¬ÅAs a mom who makes her healthy eating a priority, IÃ¢â¬â¢m so impressed to see that LincolnÃ¢â¬â¢s lunch trays are filled with colorful, locally grown cherries, savory carrots, yellow watermelon, fresh blueberries, and plums,Ã¢â¬Â writes Kourtney.
Kourtney reveals in her letter to Lincoln students and faculty that becoming a mom has influenced her own eating habits.
Ã¢â¬Å[It] has changed the way I think about food. What we feed our kids matters. I want to give my kids the best start in life, so I choose clean, unprocessed foods that will help them grow strong and healthy,” she added.
Kourtney handed out an A+ to Lincoln Public SchoolÃ¢â¬â¢s healthy lunch program. And, Kourtney scores an A+ in Healthy HollywoodÃ¢â¬â¢s book for her push to get kids to eat their veggies!
