The concept of using Food as Medicine is not a new one. For millennia, humans have used food for better health because that was the only food that was available. When we lived in more natural surroundings, we ate what nature intended us to eat; fresh meat, vegetables, fruits, berries and grains.

The problem with our eating habits in this modern world is we are busier than ever before and are constantly bombarded with convenient, comfort foods that contain synthetic and processed ingredients rather than natural ones. These foods can cause a lot of different health ailments including obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers.

The idea that healthier foods are more expensive is a misconception. If you know what to buy and how to use it, you can save a whole lot of money and eat healthier than you’ve ever eaten before.
