‘The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.' - Ann Wigmore
Eating food that nature provides (at least most of the time) is one of the most impactful things we can do for our health. Vegetables, fruits, tubers, beans, herbs, spices, nuts, seeds, meat, fish, seafood, eggs. Eating these foods provides more nutrition for fewer calories and helps restore our bodies natural mechanisms of satiety and fullness making it much harder to overeat.
It should be such an easy decision to make but the food industry has spent billions creating convenient food-like substances which trigger all the reward centres in our brain and billions more marketing these substances on a massive scale. Coupled with cheap prices and it’s a tough combination to resist.
But resist we must. The evidence is clear. The further we stray from nature to factory the more likely it is we will end up overfed and undernourished.
