Our health and well-being is our personal responsibility…

We can eat processed, high salt, high fat, high sugar, low nutrient foods and feel and look terrible or we can choose to eat nutrient rich and minimally processed foods and gain health, vitality, and an energetic passion for life. Personally, when I eat well, I feel well and look great. When I eat junk, I feel lethargic and slow. Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a nutrition-focused medical doctor, says a healthy eating style can reduce or eliminate high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, chronic headaches, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, and other chronic medical conditions. Through healthy eating we can reduce and often eliminate the need for medications. No matter what your current eating style or fitness level is, I encourage you to at least consider moving towards health and vitality by adding high-nutrient foods to your diet. There are numerous resources to help you get started and/or keep you motivated, including Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat for Health books. I’ll continue to update my “Reading Room” and “Resources” with appropriate material that is balanced, nutritious, vegetarian, and vegan. Feel free to post suggestions/recommendations and we can continue to add to the list.
