FOOD AS MEDICINE
The average American’s typical eating patterns are far from nutrient dense which our bodies require to thrive. Often, meals consist of large portions of food high in fat, refined sugar, and sodium which can negatively impact human physiology in a number of ways extending Well beyond the problems we associate with excessive caloric intake alone. In essence, eating bad foods over and over again can affect your health adversely in the long run just as long-term exposure to a harmful drug can.
Eating well requires a mindset that adopts a lifestyle, versus a diet, of deliberate focus and a re-education about what constitutes healthy eating. It’s helpful to recognize that every food choice is an opportunity to move toward a healthy eating pattern. Small diet modifications in a day, over time, can become big shifts in a lifestyle with remarkable improvements in quality of life.
