I am so into healthy eating and I am so humbly proud of it. I buy food for nutrition, not just for taste. Food is your true medicine; food can also be your poison. This is why it’s so important that you educate yourself about food and nutrition. When you eat, ask yourself “I’m I nurturing my body, or I’m I harming it by making my kidney and liver work harder to rid of foreign substances?” The more processed the food you eat is, the harder your lymphatic system has to work to dispose of toxins.
If you have not always been into eating healthy and don’t know where to start, that’s no problem. There is plenty of information on the Internet (blogs, articles, etc.) to help you get started. There are dozens of books about nutrition. Learn about naturopathic medicine and consider having a general doctor who is an ND (naturopathic doctor). I admit that I seldom, in the past, felt excited about spending time in the kitchen preparing healthy and delicious meals (yes, I said healthy and delicious). However, the more I educate myself about food and proper nutrition the more I enjoy and look forward to be in my kitchen. Find ways to make it fun and exciting. Take pictures of the foods you make. Learn something about a fruit or vegetable each day. But most important, put into practice what you learn about nutrition. I think of my kitchen as my laboratory where I prepare the best medicines that will help me keep my body healthy. I could go on and on about this topic… and I will, but it will take many more pots. So for now, I hope you find motivation in the following pictures I took while I was in the supermarket.
