Quality of life is key. We can possess all the things we desire, but without health, what do we have? Society, along with today’s food industry, has driven us in a direction that is for profit and not for health. Hippocrates once said, “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food.” Does this mean eat your medicine for nutrition? NO! It means the food we eat needs to be nutritious enough to keep us healthy so our bodies can fight disease. Reflecting on the history of mankind, we can see how our bodies are designed to function. We eat for fuel. The designer of your truck made it so that it runs on fuel. You would not put water in your tank. It is not designed to run on water and it would destroy the engine. Well, we are the same. We are designed to thrive on natural foods not synthetic (manmade). Our bodies have no idea what to do with this manmade stuff, therefore it often stops running correctly. Disease can set in when our bodies get the wrong information. Let’s keep this in mind when it is time to eat. Make a nutritious plan. You can do it.
“If you fail to plan you are planning to fail.” Benjamin Franklin
