Our Fundamental Needs for Living...

One of our fundamental needs for living is... you guessed it, FOOD!

However the problem in our modern era is that our idea of food has been negatively impacted by consumerism. Unfortunately the packaged 'food' your seeing
in the aisles of supermarkets isn't nutritious, wholesome and fulfilling, yes theres no denying it might be tasty due to the sugar content.
But if it has a break down of ingredients with words you cant pronounce, chances are it's not the healthy food our bodies thrive of.

Choosing to eat healthy food that either came from the ground or was once a living animal will contribute to a healthier life with fewer illnesses and
consuming a variety of healthy food ensures you are taking in different vitamins and minerals which contribute to our overall wellbeing and general functioning.

Think of it this way, you wouldn't fill a diesel car with petrol and expect it to run smoothly! The same principle applies to us, if your eating a poor diet don't expect your body to function at its full potential. 

The benefits of healthy eating goes further than just feeling good, eating nutrient dense healthy food also reflects in your appearance! You can expect shinier, stronger and glossier hair from eating a diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, Biotin, Protein, Vitamin A and Zinc, these nutrients also contribute to stronger nails and glowing skin. 
And when you look great, you feel great!

A poor diet can result in you generally feeling sluggish whereas healthy eating can contribute to increased energy levels and feeling more energetic, enhancing our performance  in our daily lives at work and in the gym. Our brain's also benefit from healthy eating and by consuming foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B and Antioxidants such as blueberries our cognitive function improves greatly!

The perks to choosing to fuel your body with healthy and nutrient dense food far outweigh the cons, so why not start today. Even if it's as small as substituting the sugar in your cuppa with stevia or coconut sugar. It's a start :)
