“A family that eats together.”


eat right together

In your household, how often do you and your family eat a healthy meal together? Because a lot of families around the country don’t eat a meal that is based in health. They typically eat foods that are not good for them. Now to play devil’s advocate, a lot of the unhealthy food is cheaper and goes further. So trying to eat a balanced diet when you are eating on a budget is tough. Because it cost way more money to eat healthy foods than it does to not eat healthy. For example, McDonald’s menu has entire $1 meals you can purchase, but there is not much room to eat a good meal at night for $3. And these fast food restaurants are locate din poorer communities.

kids eat what we eat

When I was a kid and there was a BBQ for the family, we as the kids ate whatever he parents had to eat. So if the kids had rib tips, then you know what, so did we. The problem that this creates is starting kids off on the wrong track as it pertains to trying to eat right. There really is no reason that kids should be eating the same food as full grown adults. Especially considering that the adults are eating foods they should be cutting form their diet as well.

making the conscious decision

As you walk the aisles of the grocery store, resist the temptation to purchase foods that are not good for you. For so many of us who like eating the unhealthy because it taste good, that’s hard. For me, it’s really not that hard of a task to do. I know what I want versus what is good for me to eat. So eating foods good for me is quite simple. But I also played sports, so eating foods that were good for you were beneficial. So, my who life has been set this way. And trying a new exercise regimen or diet becomes easy.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
