You are what you eat, from your head down to your feet.  So simple and yet so true.  It underscores the value of good food.  Quality nutrition.  In our day and age of technology and consciousness, we are actually seeing MORE food related intolerances and deficiencies than ever before.  This is not due to a lack of available food, but a lack of good QUALITY food.  Much of the food that we have accessible to us today is chock full of preservatives, additives and chemicals that wreak havoc inside our bodies.  In food, just like in all else, simplicity is the best path to ultimate wellness.  The more pure a food source, the more nutrient dense it is going to be.  The more modified that it is, the harsher it is going to be inside the body.  So, as you shop, don’t just pick up stuff off the shelf, read the label.  If you can’t pronounce half the stuff on the list, then put it back.  If it contains genetically modified products, put it back.  Know your sources and where your food comes from.  Hell, grow some of it yourself (in season, of course).  That way, you know exactly what’s in it, and more importantly, what’s not.  You are what you eat, so eat well.
