The food we eat has a direct impact on our health. Each bite we put in our mouth can support our health. Here is how:
Fuel for our body to feel good
Food provides our organs and systems the information and ingredients to work properly. Nutrient and mineral rich foods gives our body functions the information to grow, develop and maintain. When our bodies are being nourished properly, we physically and mentally perform at our best, we feel good and have energy to do the things we want to do, we feel happy. To get a great source of nutrients and minerals eat a big variety of vegetables, grass-fed and pastured meat, wild fish, healthy fats like olive oil and avocados, good carbs that won’t spike your blood sugar like vegetables and nuts.
Medicine – to maintain, prevent, and treat disease
When we provide our body too much food or the wrong food, we become overweight, undernourished, and at risk for diseases and conditions like arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease. We fuel our body with nutrient and mineral dense foods to maintain and prevent disease. When we start to or become sick, it’s important we provide our body the necessary support by drinking lots of bone broth because it’s anti-inflammatory and heals a damaged gut, the root of many diseases.
Supporting our emotional and mental health
Sharing a meal brings us together with our favorite people. Surrounding ourselves with close relationships gives us a long and fulfilled life by supporting our emotional and mental health. This intimate community pushes us to be our best self, picks us up when we are down, helps us to stay accountable and build resilience.
