This week, starting yesterday with our fresh juice toast, we're going to spend each day celebrating the life of Jack LaLanne, a man who had so much impact on my views on health and wellness.
In my opinion, this quote has got to be one of the simplest yet most influential philosophies of Jack LaLanne when it came to his own food perspective.
In 2007, I started to adopt Jack's philosophy almost 100%. I started by cutting out all aritificial sweeteners namely drinking diet soda...something I've been drinking for years.
Slowly, I adopted the philosophy that no one makes food better than Mother Nature and really, when you start eating real whole foods, organic or all-natural, you will see a significant difference not only in taste and experience, but in your overall health.
If you have local restaurants that support a farm-to-table philosophy, check them out and try new dishes. As well, support local farmer's markets for fresh produce and helping out your local economy.
I am totally with Hippocrates in his saying, "Let food be thy medicine." I have never felt better in my self since eating more fresh whole fods.
