It is a known fact that what we eat will either empower your life or make you sick, hence the term “You Are What You Eat”! Good nutrition is vital for the healthy function of the 11 systems of our entire body. With this reality in mind, it is wise for us to be very careful in our eating and drinking practices.
God our creator designed the best foods to sustain our life and health. He gave us fruits, nuts, grains, and vegetables which originally had a perfect balance. All were full of vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, and good fats, which the body needs for optimum vitality, health, and strength.
Today modern science globally confirms that eating this plant-based diet of fruits, nuts, grains, and vegetables is the most effective prevention to avoid lifestyle diseases. In this fast-food world lifestyle diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and strokes, are results of poor nutrition. Junk food, refined sugars, animal fats, and an abundance of artificial flavours is the order of today with devastating impact. Science shows that 80% of the body’s immune system is in the gut, further referencing the connection between the gut and brain known as (the gut-brain connection). So think before you eat.
