Are you feeling sluggish? Having a hard time finding the energy to do what you need to do? Feeling a little run down? Or perhaps you’re fighting to lose those 20 pounds and they just won’t come off? What if we told you that you really are what you eat?

We can see you shrugging your shoulders and thinking “ya right,” but it’s true. The reason you have no energy or you feel sluggish, or you can’t lose those pounds is because you are not giving your body the nutrients it needs to remain healthy and active.

We are busy people – we eat on the run, we grab pre-packaged foods that are easy to prepare, and we order take out. After all, food is food and it sure saves time right? Wrong! Food isn’t food and it’s extremely difficult to find healthy foods that fit any of these scenarios.

Even those foods that have the wonderful heart healthy check, or those that claim “low fat” or “low salt” can’t compete with healthy foods that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that our bodies need to stay healthy.

Prepackaged foods have lost their nutritional value. Fresh fruits and vegetables are powerful foods that can help you slow the aging process, reenergize yourself, and look and feel years younger. Of course, there are other healthy foods including low fat meats, fish, and chicken, and dairy products.

The next time you head to the store, take a stroll around it and notice the type of foods that are in the inner isles and the type that are on the outer isles. You’ll quickly see where you should be shopping. Nutrition resides on the outside isles of your grocery store.

There are also super foods that are worth adding to your diet that are really worth the effort to include in your diets – Cinnamon, Goji berries, pumpkin seeds, and Quinoa are a great place to start. There are plenty of others. Why not start today creating a healthy environment for your body?
