Nutrition, Let Food Be Thy Medicine

You are what you eat! That is right, whatever you are eating is going to become part of who you are. Your body uses food to create and restore the tissues that are constantly being replaced everyday. So what you eat becomes the new you.


Eat!


Whole Foods such as Fresh vegetables, fruits and meat. It is best to eat organic or locally grown foods. The way the food was raised makes a difference because you become what you eat. Eating whole foods that are organic or farmed locally will add energy and vitality to your body.


Stay away from

  • S.A.D.C.R.A.P. (Standard, American, Diet, Carbohydrates, Refined, Artificial, Processed)

  • 4 White Devils (White Sugar, White flour, White processed salt, pasteurized Dairy products)

These foods are highly processed and will cost your body more energy to digest and create a deficit of energy reserves for the body. This will make you tired and lethargic, clog up your digestive system, and cause inflammation in the body.
