Bragg Organic ACV Drinks Featured in ‘if Your Fridge Could Talk…’

Bragg Organic ACV Drinks Fea­tured in ‘If Your Fridge Could Talk…’

 

Take a close look at the photo in the arti­cle below — notice some­thing familiar?

We were very excited to see Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vine­gar Drinks as a part of Campbell’s “Pas­sion­ate Kitchen Mas­ter” test kitchen, shown below in an arti­cle by the Wall Street Jour­nal. After over 18 months of care­ful sur­vey and study, the culi­nary giant assem­bled six small test kitchens in their New Jer­sey head­quar­ters, each themed to reflect one of the six main types of chefs they identified.

 

In the test kitchen of the con­sumer iden­ti­fied as the “Pas­sion­ate Kitchen Mas­ter”, our Organic Apple Cider Vine­gar & Honey Drinks are shown along­side kale, toma­toes, lots of greens, and a mostly veg­e­tar­ian array of proteins.

What Does Your Fridge Say About You?

Pas­sion­ate Kitchen Mas­ter; The Art of the Side Dish Smackdown

Camp­bell Soup Co. may be defin­ing you as a Pas­sion­ate Kitchen Mas­ter. To Gen­eral Mills Inc., you may be a “potluck slacker.”

At this time of the year peo­ple are fran­ti­cally bak­ing another batch of cook­ies or host­ing a feast. It is a three-month Super Bowl for food com­pa­nies to sell ingre­di­ents such as chicken broth, canned pump­kin or choco­late chips.

The food com­pa­nies have sub­tle ways to slice and dice hol­i­day cook­ing behav­ior and the spe­cific demands of each hol­i­day week—and tai­lor and mar­ket their food accordingly.

PKMs, as Camp­bell employ­ees call them, “get really excited about the hol­i­days” and look for­ward to every aspect of plan­ning the meal, says Jane Freiman, direc­tor of the company’s con­sumer test kitchen.

Scott Lewis for The Wall Street Jour­nal
 

Camp­bell uses six con­sumer types as a foun­da­tion to develop and mar­ket new prod­ucts and cre­ate recipes. After study­ing con­sumers in their homes, while they shop and through sur­veys over 18 months, the com­pany built six small kitchens last year at its head­quar­ters in Cam­den, N.J., to reflect each group. The kitchens have the typ­i­cal fix­tures includ­ing cook­ware and foods of each cook­ing type to “feel like you are in their shoes,” when com­ing up with new ideas, Ms. Freiman says.

Recip­i­ents of Bragg Schol­ar­ships Give Thanks!


The Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Health Sci­ence Schol­ar­ship

The Bragg Health Insti­tute is com­mit­ted to prepar­ing future gen­er­a­tions to be skilled in the health sci­ences by pro­vid­ing Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Health Sci­ence Schol­ar­ships to stu­dents attend­ing select col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties. We sup­port 3rd year stu­dents pur­su­ing degrees in Natur­o­pathic Med­i­cine; that through their stud­ies and prac­tice of Nat­ural Med­i­cine they fur­ther the Mis­sion of the Bragg Health Insti­tute as Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Health Sci­ence Scholars.

 


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

Each year, NDI grows and touches more peo­ple around the globe. Your gen­eros­ity helps us do that. This year I was the first natur­o­pathic physi­cian along with Dr. Michael Cronin, to attend the WHO World Health Assem­bly. I am pic­tured here with Dr. Zhang, the head of the WHO tra­di­tional med­i­cine depart­ment, advo­cat­ing for natur­o­pathic med­i­cine glob­ally. We are cre­at­ing bridges, which will allow stu­dents and doc­tors to work in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the WHO in the future. The 2014 recip­i­ents of the Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ships con­tinue the tra­di­tional to grow nat­ural med­i­cine glob­ally that this schol­ar­ship started when your vision began this amaz­ing pro­gram. The Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship pro­vides recip­i­ents the oppor­tu­nity to serve and be a part of this big­ger dream. I am truly thank­ful that your con­tin­ued sup­port allows us to get closer to that dream everyday.

With sin­cere grat­i­tude, Dr. Tabatha Parker, NDI Exec­u­tive Director


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

I would like to express my sin­cere grat­i­tude and appre­ci­a­tion for your gen­er­ous dona­tion, with­out which I would not have been able to par­tic­i­pate in the global health course with Nat­ural Doc­tors Inter­na­tional this Sep­tem­ber. With this Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship, I was able to learn a great deal more about natur­o­pathic med­i­cine and global health, and con­tribute my clin­i­cal expe­ri­ence and skills of trans­la­tion. I am thank­ful for the oppor­tu­nity I received to use my knowl­edge to help those in need. I am also grate­ful for the oppor­tu­nity to receive some great clin­i­cal wis­dom from the excel­lent NDI team of natur­o­pathic doc­tors and the psy­chol­o­gist. I am so thank­ful for your sup­port, and I look for­ward to car­ry­ing this expe­ri­ence with me through­out my career in natur­o­pathic medicine.

Sin­cerely, Raul Guz­man, Stu­dent of Natur­o­pathic Med­i­cine, Uni­ver­si­dad del Turabo Puerto Rico, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Bragg,

I am writ­ing to thank you for your gen­er­ous dona­tion, which allowed me to par­tic­i­pate in the Sep­tem­ber 2014 global health brigade with Nat­ural Doc­tors Inter­na­tional where I worked in the clinic, help­ing to pro­vide nutri­tion con­sul­ta­tions and shad­owed natur­o­pathic doc­tors. It was an incred­i­ble learn­ing expe­ri­ence. The clinic pro­vided many oppor­tu­ni­ties to give nutri­tional advice to patients with a vari­ety of health con­cerns rang­ing from dia­betes to chronic inflam­ma­tion to ane­mia. It was inspir­ing and at times heart­break­ing work, and I learned a great deal about natur­o­pathic med­i­cine in a global set­ting. With this Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship I increased my knowl­edge and aware­ness of global health issues, gained invalu­able hands-on expe­ri­ence, and was inspired to make global health a part of my future career. Thank you for mak­ing this a pos­si­bil­ity for me. I will never for­get the lessons in life and med­i­cine that I learned from the doc­tors, other stu­dents, and patients at the clinic on Ome­tepe. I look for­ward to incor­po­rat­ing every­thing I learned into my future work toward a health­ier planet.

Sin­cerely, Emily Brum­stead, Stu­dent of Nutri­tion, Bastyr Uni­ver­sity, Wash­ing­ton, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

As I antic­i­pated, it is very hard to express and con­vey the mag­ni­tude of my grat­i­tude with words. My grat­i­tude extends to NDI for the immensely impor­tant work they are doing and to you Dr. Bragg, for sup­port­ing NDI’s vision and the stu­dent global health expe­ri­ence. Born and raised in Jamaica and liv­ing around the world I was always exposed to the grave dis­par­i­ties that existed in health care pro­vi­sion and access. What was unique about my time with NDI is that for the first time I felt I was expe­ri­enc­ing the solu­tion rather than just the prob­lem. My time with my host fam­ily and work in the fields allowed me to truly under­stand the range of con­di­tions we saw in the clinic. Work­ing with amaz­ing doc­tors and NDI team, I saw more diverse and numer­ous patient cases in four clinic days than I have in my entire stu­dent career. Need­less to say I learned so much about med­i­cine, human­ity, and myself. Since my trip to Ome­tepe, I have felt excited, inspired and re-energized about my stud­ies at Bastyr and future career. I have a new­found clar­ity in the role of Natur­o­pathic Med­i­cine in the global health arena and truly look for­ward to apply­ing my new knowl­edge to my future work in Jamaica. I sin­cerely thank you for pro­vid­ing me with the Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship, which lit­er­ally made a dream become a real­ity, and brought so much clar­ity to a life’s vision. With­out your sup­port I would not have been able to afford the cost of this experience.

Sin­cerely, Kimani Mac­Don­ald, Stu­dent of Natur­o­pathic Med­i­cine, Bastyr Uni­ver­sity, Wash­ing­ton, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

I am writ­ing to thank you for your gen­er­ous dona­tion, which allowed me to par­tic­i­pate in the 2014 global health brigade with Nat­ural Doc­tors Inter­na­tional. Dur­ing the brigade I worked in the clinic, help­ing to pro­vide nutri­tion con­sul­ta­tions, assist­ing with trans­la­tion and shad­ow­ing natur­o­pathic doc­tors. It was an incred­i­ble learn­ing expe­ri­ence. Although lack of resources presents many chal­lenges, patients are open to mak­ing the dietary changes they can to address their con­di­tions. I have always wanted to con­nect the worlds of social ser­vice with holis­tic med­i­cine, and NDI does just that. With this Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship I increased my knowl­edge and aware­ness of global health issues, gained invalu­able hands-on expe­ri­ence, and was inspired to make global health a part of my future career. Thank you for mak­ing the NDI brigade pos­si­ble for me.

Sin­cerely, Rachel Fiske, Holis­tic Nutri­tion­ist, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

I am writ­ing to thank you for your gen­er­ous dona­tion which allowed me to par­tic­i­pate in the 2014 global health/ herbal­ist brigade with Nat­ural Doc­tors Inter­na­tional. I am Direc­tor of a small non­profit work­ing with some of the poor­est and most under­priv­i­leged chil­dren and youth in Nicaragua. We pro­vide a com­pre­hen­sive, holis­tic after school pro­gram, and by attend­ing this brigade I was able to gain greater knowl­edge of the role nat­ural med­i­cine could play in the health of our chil­dren and com­mu­nity. I sat in on many con­sul­ta­tions, and most of the issues were things that I have seen in my own com­mu­nity. My hope is that some­day we can incor­po­rate nat­ural med­i­cine in our pro­gram in Nagarote.

With much grat­i­tude, Ron­nie Ellen Maher, Direc­tor, NicaPhoto, Inc, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

I am writ­ing to thank you for your dona­tion, which allowed me to par­tic­i­pate with NDI in April 2014. This beau­ti­ful expe­ri­ence helped me to grow in so many ways. The Island of Ome­tepe is the most beau­ti­ful and mag­i­cal place I have ever vis­ited. I am so grate­ful to have met excel­lent doc­tors and staff that are com­mit­ted to their work and to the peo­ple. I was able to see the vari­ety of clin­i­cal tools such as phys­i­cal exam­i­na­tion, clin­i­cal diag­no­sis, botan­i­cal treat­ments, acupunc­ture, home­opa­thy, psy­cho­log­i­cal coun­sel­ing, and nutri­tion. My expe­ri­ence with the patients was very spe­cial and I was able to con­nect with their suf­fer­ing and neces­si­ties. This is why I have decided that I will do what­ever is in my power to help NDI grow and expand to other coun­tries. Because my first lan­guage is Span­ish I was able to trans­late. I see myself in the future work­ing as a doc­tor in Ome­tepe. Thanks to the Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship I gained hands on expe­ri­ence, new knowl­edge and new friends that in 10 short days became my fam­ily. I will never for­get this expe­ri­ence — thank you very much.

Warm regards, Carla M Sanchez Vivaldi, 5th year ND Stu­dent, Turabo Uni­ver­sity, Puerto Rico, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

Thank you for the oppor­tu­nity given to me to visit and learn in Nicaragua. It was the most grow­ing expe­ri­ence that I have had as a stu­dent and as a per­son. This amaz­ing expe­ri­ence was only pos­si­ble because of the grant given to me and I would be thrilled for oth­ers to receive it in the future. I do rec­om­mend for all stu­dents to have this field expe­ri­ence and not only is NDI help­ing a beau­ti­ful and at-need com­mu­nity, but also enrich­ing us Natur­o­pathic Med­i­cine stu­dents. Again I say thank you for this won­der­ful experience.

With great grat­i­tude, Dr. Alec M. Laracuente Ph.D, 5th year ND Stu­dent, Turabo Uni­ver­sity, Puerto Rico Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

I write with grat­i­tude in my heart for the Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship. Because of this assis­tance, I was able to par­tic­i­pate in a brigade for NDI in Nicaragua, where I could put my inter­ests in nat­ural med­i­cine to good work in the deserv­ing com­mu­nity. As an anthro­pol­ogy enthu­si­ast, I’m always excited to explore a new cul­ture and gain a clearer under­stand­ing about the cur­rent issues in global health. As a stu­dent of Acupunc­ture and Ori­en­tal Med­i­cine, I was so happy to see inte­gra­tive med­i­cine in action on our brigade, where acupunc­tur­ists worked along­side natur­opaths and mas­sage ther­a­pists to treat patients in the most com­pre­hen­sive way pos­si­ble. I’m already look­ing for­ward to the next brigade!

Sin­cerely, Juli Yel­nick, Acupunc­ture and Ori­en­tal Med­i­cine stu­dent, National Uni­ver­sity of Health Sci­ences, Lom­bard, Illi­nois, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

Thank you for your gen­er­ous dona­tion and mak­ing my time with NDI an incred­i­ble expe­ri­ence. It was truly an honor to be able to serve the Ome­tepe com­mu­nity and put skills and knowl­edge into prac­tice as well as learn new ones dur­ing the med­ical brigade. My time with NDI reaf­firmed my com­mit­ment to pub­lic ser­vice and strength­ened my com­mit­ment to and knowl­edge about global health and social jus­tice. Thank you again for your con­tri­bu­tion and allow­ing me to learn and work along­side the amaz­ing NDI team of staff and volunteers.

Sin­cerely, Brenda Her­nan­dez, MPS Can­di­date 2015, Uni­ver­sity of Arkansas, Clin­ton School of Pub­lic Ser­vice, Recip­i­ent 2014


Dear Dr. Patri­cia Bragg,

I am so grate­ful to be writ­ing this let­ter to you about my won­der­ful expe­ri­ence in Nicaragua that you made pos­si­ble with your kind schol­ar­ship. NDI was an amaz­ing expe­ri­ence that allowed me to work elbow to elbow with natur­opaths, psy­chol­o­gists, stu­dents of nat­ural med­i­cine and stu­dents of acupunc­ture. I was able to share my expe­ri­ence and knowl­edge of Chi­nese Med­i­cine with every­one on the trip, which is some­thing I am so pas­sion­ate about. We treated over 100 patients dur­ing the week that I was there and each patient effected me so deeply with their sto­ries and health issues. I learned a great deal from the NDI Med­ical Direc­tor, Dr. Daw­son Farr. The amount of great work that NDI does is price­less. With the Patri­cia and Paul C. Bragg Global Health Schol­ar­ship, I was afforded the oppor­tu­nity to make global health a pri­or­ity in my life. I look for­ward to future brigades and have taken the knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence back to the states with me to share with oth­ers. Once again, many thank you’s for the oppor­tu­nity and experience.

With kind­est regards, Natalia Eich­staedt, L.Ac, Recip­i­ent 2014
