Food As Medicine
I have always believed in magic be it fairytales or the magic around us. In my profession too as a dietician, Iam astounded by the magic food offers us. Food has an innate ability to heal. Most of the modern day diseases like heart disorders, depression, and diabetes are a perfect combination of wrong foods and a poor lifestyle. The sad part is though we appreciate the food magic when we are unwell but lose it when all’s fine. Since modern time is also highly time pressed, I am not going to go over the A-Z of food. Here are some really quick and simple food tactics to help you out.
Our body is made up of 70 percent water which is the life source of all. What if we combine water and food…that will be real magic. Here are a few simple homemade infusions from your kitchen shelf, to imbibe health and energy into your already existing food and lifestyle patterns.
