“Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates
“The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison.” – Ann Wigmore
When we made our wedding vows, we said we’d stick together in sickness or health until death do us part. But I never really thought how the food we eat could affect our longevity and possibly make us experience a health crisis at a young age. Did you?
Every time you prepare a meal, go grocery shopping, or go out to eat…you are making a choice, a choice to pick foods that nourish your body or deter your body…there is no in between. Your decisions not only affect you, but also those around you…spouses, kids, grand-kids, family, friends. Your food choices may be your choice, but your health affects everyone around you. Fresh, whole foods have the power to heal and give you back your health and life. The next time you make a food choice, think about this: Is this food medicine or a slow form of poison?
