Get Real Food

“Exercise and nutrition are intimately related. Think of them as two wheels on a bicycle. When one is faulty or inadequate, you end up with a dysfunctional bicycle.”

Real Food Recipes

The essence of today’s nutrition message is eat “real food”. Nutrition has come full circle… from field to table, TV dinners, instant breakfasts, and now back to whole food that’s as close as possible to the way nature made it.

Research shows that certain foods can cause and combat systemic inflammation. Chronic inflammation can be responsible for chronic disease. This constant irritant in your body can damage arteries and inflame tissues which are associated with heart disease, dementia, cancer, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis.

You can control how you feel and how you age. Prevent age-related diseases and promote overall wellness with the right foods. Good nutrition can help reduce inflammation, preserve your vision, maintain bone density, and manage diseases like hypertension, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.
