I believe that first and foremost you are responsible for your health and the health of your children. Your purpose in purchasing food should be to nourish your body. Remember, it has to last for a lifetime. It is certainly not true that if food is good for you it does not taste good. Nutritious food can also be delicious food. Good health begins with what we do and do not put into our bodies. It is very natural for us to consider taste, appearance, cost and convenience when we purchase food but do you also consider what nutritional value or harmful additives it may contain?
Do you make yourself knowledgeable about food choices? For example: Would you prefer to eat a tomato grown in a field that has been sprayed with herbicides to kill weeds, that was fed with chemical fertilizers, sprayed with insecticides to kill insects, sprayed with fungicides to kill plant disease, picked green and gased to cause it to ripen rather than a tomato picked from your own garden or purchased from an organic farmer who uses no chemicals and nurtures the soil to produce healthy, delicious tomatoes? Another example: Which would you choose, a loaf of bread made with organic flour and whole grains that has developed complex flavor and wonderful texture as a result of time honored methods or a loaf of bread made with refined flour (produced from genetically modified wheat which was grown with chemicals), and contains many food additives? The choice is yours. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I encourage you to:
Take Responsibility Be Knowledgeable Make Good Choices
Take Care of Your Body, It Has To Last For A Lifetime!
