WE ARE WHAT WE EAT

We are what we eat. We've all heard it, but most of us probably don't quite believe it.

We are what we eat. We've all heard it, but most of us probably don't quite believe it.

But we are!

It's every bit as true as it is hard to see. Just as our homes are made from lumber without looking like trees, our bodies are made from the nutrients we extract from foods without resembling those foods.

The nutritional content of what we eat determines the composition of our cell membranes, bone marrow, blood, and hormones. Consider that the average adult loses roughly 300 billion cells to old age every day and must replace them. Our bodies are literally manufactured out of the food we consume.

That's why what we put in them is of utmost importance — and why "clean food" is an urgent priority and "junk" food is neither cute nor innocuous. In short, our bodies are only as clean as the food we feed them.
We are what we eat.

We've all heard it, but most of us probably don't quite believe it.

Our bodies are replacing billions of cells every day — and using the foods we consume as the source of building materials. Eating well is part of the formula that can reduce our risk of any major chronic disease by 80 percent and reach into our innermost selves to improve the health of our very genes.

All it took was a will not to look at health as a struggle, but as a daily decision to honor the body.

Real food is pricier than processed food made in a lab or a factory. And you will certainly see a jump in the grand total on your grocery receipts. But over time you’ll get the hang of it, and I promise it will become more manageable.

I recall my mother admonishing me, as a child, to clean my plate because there were starving kids in someplace of the world. These days, those countries like us, has epidemic obesity. Forget about cleaning your plate — focus instead on choosing clean foods to put on it in the first place. You know what's at stake: life itself, the liberty that comes with good health, and the likelihood of happiness.

When I finally turned my life and health around through natural nutrition and good food I realized that – healthy recipes can be easy to prepare; they can be quick, exciting and fun; you can look and feel well, because we really are what we eat.

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
