This philosophy continues to hold true today. When we flood our body with vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes, we nourish all our cells in our body allowing our body to PREVENT disease from starting, STOP the progression of any disease that may have started, and most times, REVERSE disease! Our immune system becomes the MOST POWERFUL fighting machine--hundreds of times stronger than ANY medication on the market. Many people just do not realize how powerful our body can be in fighting off chronic diseases--heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, GI issues, high cholesterol, etc., etc., etc.
Let's push off our plates the foods that are causing diseases to start and take hold, and instead, FILL our plates with all kinds of vegetables, greens, fruits, beans, rice, potatoes--any and ALL foods found in the PLANT kingdom. These are the foods that FUEL our body, give ammunition to our immune system, feed our gut bacteria, (science now realizes just how IMPORTANT our gut health is to our health), and keep us running like a well oiled machine!
This way of eating is absolutely accessible to each and everyone of us. Each time we choose to eat, we choose what food we will be putting in our mouth--food that will STRENGTHEN our body, or food that will WEAKEN our body.
It is AFFORDABLE to do this--potatoes, rice, beans, vegetables that are in season are all VERY AFFORDABLE! The secret is learning how to make delicious, healthy meals using these ingredients--it is very easy to do!
If this is something you've been thinking about or would like to try eating this way but are just not sure HOW to go about this, please drop me a line....I can help you fill your plates with nutritious, delicious, health-promoting, disease-fighting foods!
When we give our body what it needs, our body will heal itself........
