  • Can you unpack the word courage and why you believe it is so critical in all aspects of our lives?

SUMMARY: Planning to make your dream a reality is key, and it is never too late to activate your life course!

ABOUT JEREMY CAGE

Jeremy is an optimistic and energetic leader with a 30 year track record of delivering profitable business growth - combining his skills in Marketing, Innovation, Strategy, and General Management with the kind of courage and spirit of adventure that took him and his family on a sailing voyage around the world in 2007 and 2008.  

He spent the first 16 years of his career at Procter&Gamble.  He spent 10 years at PepsiCo – as Chief Marketing Officer of the International Foods business and Senior Vice President of the Global Snacks business.  He was subsequently appointed CEO of a leading Lighting Technology company called the Lighting Science Group.  

Jeremy is now President of the Cage Group – a Strategy, Marketing and Innovation firm designed to help businesses and organizations unleash their full potential.  He is a founding partner in three business startups – A snacks business – called Farmer’s Pantry; a better for you ingredients business called Galapagos; and a Brand Potential Assessment service for Private Equity and Venture Capital called The Brand Charge.  

He has just published his first book “All Dreams on Deck – Charting the course for your life and Work”.   Here is what Katie Couric had to say about it:

“Jeremy Cage has written a great book that everyone who thinks about how to better balance work–life issues would benefit from reading. Everything starts with a dream—but Jeremy really shows us how to get started on making these dreams come to life. Generalities won’t get it done; it requires very specific charting and execution. Just as Jeremy navigated his way across oceans, he’s also shown us how we can better navigate life’s personal and professional challenges. I’m giving my daughters copies of his book, and I hope they get as much out of Jeremy’s insights as I did.”


Finally - Jeremy brings a unique global perspective to his work, as he is tri-lingual, and has lived and worked in Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, the UK, Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico and the US.

Less Stress Family Meals

June 11, 2017

Regan-HeadShot2016-1.jpg

 

Regan Jones, Registered Dietician and Culinary Nutritionist with Cabot Creamery Cooperative joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Nutrition Channels to share less stress family meal planning.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Regan Jones discuss the following:

  • Tell us about Cabot Creamery Cooperative, something listeners may not know.
  • What are some simple steps listeners can take toward less stressful family meals?
  • What are some kid friendly assignments listeners can give children to make them part of meal preparations?
  • What are a few healthy tips or substitutions to keep in mind when cooking?
  • If we are being honest, family dinners are nice, but don’t happen as often as most of us would like. What are some ways to make the time together count?
  • How would listeners learn more and get additional tips/healthy recipes?

 MM52737LOGO.jpg

 

When you believe in taste-first, it's clear to see why you'd be involved in the dairy world. After all, food experts around the globe know that great taste begins in the dairy case, right? And more to the point, Registered Dietitian Regan Jones learned early on in her career that great taste doesn’t have to mean foods that are bad for you. On the contrary, Regan has spent years seeking out foods and recipes that are healthy, nutritious and, equally important, taste great.

Regan’s passion for cooking has translated into a profession of culinary-based nutrition pursuits: first in the test kitchen for Oxmoor House, and then as an Assistant Food Editor at Weight Watchers and Cooking Light magazines. Through her experiences as an Assistant Food Editor, Regan became increasingly involved and passionate about communicating trustworthy nutrition guidance to the public through the media - hence her pursuit as the Nutrition Communications Director at the Southeast Dairy Association from 2001 to 2005, and her former role as national spokesperson for the National Dairy Council.

Today, Regan serves as a food and nutrition consultant to Cabot Creamery Cooperative, the farm-family owned cooperative best-known as “Makers of The World’s Best Cheddar.” As a wife and mother, Regan knows just how important it is to make sure her family makes healthy food choices. She is aware that it is not always easy to ignore deep-fried or sugar laden snacks, but she also knows that learning as much as possible about the importance of a sustained, healthy diet is a goal worth striving for. That is one lesson she learned early on in her career, and as Cabot’s Health Squad Champion, one that she wishes to share with as many people as possible.

“I learned to cook at a very early age hanging onto the apron strings of my grandmother, a sweet southern lady who cooked every meal that made it to her table, from sun up to sun down in her tiny little kitchen, all from scratch,” says Regan. “She was the best cook I've ever known, and truly inspired my taste for all things good and good for you.
