Food is an important part of our daily lives.  The question is - When we eat, do we really grasp the importance of our action? There are many claims connecting a healthy diet with prevention & disease reversal - from obesity to diabetes to cancer. A healthy diet can be a powerful. If we start thinking about food as our medicine – we could change our health for a life time. Try some of these today:

CHIA SEEDS: These seeds are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals & fiber. They help keep you full & therefore ideal for weight-loss & management situations.

EGGS: Yolks are so nutritious; including minerals like calcium & magnesium & vitamins A, D, E, B6, and B12. Because they contain carotenoids, they’re great for healthy eyes & protect against vision loss. Eggs are also rich in protein & an energy-sustaining food that helps stave off fatigue.

SWEET POTATOES: This potato is packed with vitamin A for heart health & vitamin C to keep your immune system strong, especially during cold & flu season.

BEET JUICE: Beets contain cancer-fighting antioxidants & phytonutrients. If that’s not enough, beets help dilate your vessels so blood flows easily & also contain iron, which helps deliver oxygen throughout the body.
