“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” ~ Hippocrates
I enjoy taking care of my body by eating healthy foods. It has been a great learning experience that I continue working on every day. Having been raised in a home with a mother who loved to cook and bake and a Grandmother who owned her own restaurant, we learned to love many foods of many kinds, some good for us, some not so good for us. But I did learn how to cook foods not in a box, but made from scratch.
My actions of discipline and care for my body support my high self-worth. I am a person in the midst of amazing and lasting change! I now take control of food. Overeating is no longer a part of the TRUE ME. Even though I do splurge once in a while.
More than ever, people are realizing that what they eat does make a difference, not only in the way they look and feel but also in the length and quality of their lives.
Are organic foods really more nutritious than conventionally grown ones? Are eggs on the safe list? Can eating lots of fruits and vegetables lower your risk of cancer?
Cooking and eating healthful foods do not need to be complicated or dull, it can be a pleasurable experience, made even more so by knowledge and understanding.
I have heard it said that “eating is a necessity, but cooking is an art.” Cooking is an art of preparing food for the table. Cooking should be to render food more digestible.
As we learn to eat properly, I have no doubt that the most potent form of nutrition is found in raw foods, which contain the highest levels of key nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, as well as probiotics and enzymes that are destroyed by the process of cooking.
It is said that in order to be a success in any line of work, one must first be a success in one’s own body. Which means he must be a master of himself. Practice makes perfect.
