Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once said, “Dis-Moi Ce Que Tu Manges, Je Te Dirai Ce Que Tu Es.” (Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are.”) Sadly if most people living in the U.S. were defined literally by what they eat we’d have a lot of genetically modified, artificially produced adults and a bundles of sugar babies. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer five and a half years ago I took a hard look at what I was putting into my body, especially when it was no longer receiving infusions of chemo cocktails every few weeks. I wanted to clean out my system from all toxins, including any artificial ingredients and foods. My body thanks me every day for taking steps to make healthier food choices because it is healthy, strong and full of energy.
February 9th I have two authors and food writers on Fearless Fabulous You! to discuss how you can make buy better options in the supermarket, pack your pantry with power foods versus poor packaged alternatives and take smart, simple steps to live greener, leaner and healthier.
