Nutrition and our well-being are intrinsically connected. It is being said that we are what we eat and that food is medicine, and in many respects, our eating habits do reflect our mood, health, and overall well-being. Choosing predominately whole, plant-based foods that are rich in fiber and nutrient dense - think vegetables, fruit, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts, and seeds - have shown to allow the body to protect and health itself.
However, we are all aware that simply knowing better does not always translate into doing better. This is why we are creating partnerships with evidence-based programs to make it easier for you to start and continue with a program, focusing on lifestyle change in lieu of 'diets'.
