The Value and Values of Food

Do your choices match up with your needs? Let’s begin.

Updated 11/2020

When you talk about the basic needs of a human being, food, water, shelter are paramount.  We have become so disconnected with the farm to fork process that it’s easy to forget that nutrient-rich food is a fundamental need and essential component to life.

It goes without saying that having a deeper understanding of the power of our food and lifestyle choices is part of the important discussion we need to have. A good majority of our nation’s population is fighting excess weight that is impacting their health. Diabetes is on the rise, and heart disease continues to be the number one cause of death for both men and women.  With all of these things related to our personal food choices, let’s be honest.  We need to know more about food. Food is not just for nutrition, but it also helps define us culturally and connects us with our loved ones.  These things can live in harmony if we just tweak our mindset.

Do you want/need to rethink your approach? Have some fun doing it and reach out to me if I can help.
