FOODS WE EAT,
HEALING FOODS OR
Through an understanding of the nutritional quality in food, we can learn to feed our bodies to promote health and wellness. Some foods naturally contain disease-fighting, health promoting properties, we will call these “healing foods”.
Foods can also contain elements that may hinder our personal health goals. Foods that are considered, “healing foods”, can hinder our health, if these foods contain an element that would be aggrevating to your unique body.
Allergies, of course come to mind as one way that a “healing food” can become harmful, however there are other factors that may also create a challenge.
I recommend purchasing organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible to avoid the pesticide residue left on produce.
Below is a list of foods, providing a link to interesting facts about each food.
Peanuts and Peanut Butter
In the coming months, recipes will be added so be sure to return and try out your favorite, or subscribe to the health tips newsletter which will feature one of these foods each month, with a recipe.
