Let Food Be Your Medicine

Food has an incredible effect on how you feel. Most people have no idea the power food has in affecting how they think and feel.

Start the day with good food. You need to feed the body so the mind can feel energized and clear.
Food affects clarity of mind and calmness of body.

Nutrition is one of the most important factors in maintaining good overall balance in your health. A bowl of hot or cold whole grains cereal (not the kind with sugar listed as the second ingredient!) with nuts or fresh fruit on top is an easy, excellent routine to get into. There are many good cereal, fruit and nut choices to choose from so you look forward to this important, easy habit.

“Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” Hippocrates
