WHAT YOU EAT AND ABSORB
Think of it like code that programs your software. Your hardware is your genes. Your software is how those genes are turned on or off. Or as I like to say your epigenome.
Food regulates not only your genes but also your hormones, like insulin, testosterone, estrogen, and thyroid. It alters your brain chemistry, producing happy chemicals, and as many know it can even trigger addictive patterns. ( Think Sugar, alcohol, MSG, Diary etc etc )
WHAT YOU EAT AND ABSORB TODAY BECOMES YOUR BODY TOMORROW
You feed the 100 trillion bacteria living inside you with every bite and grow good bugs or bad. Food can create or stop inflammation, enhance or hurt your immune system. It provides the raw materials for your muscles, bones, brain, and every other part of your body.
So, what will you choose to eat today?
START WITH THE BASICS
Cleaning out the Pantry : Toss the foods that are loaded with chemicals. If you eat out or pick or get delivery just know that very few companies use good quality oils. So what does that mean? It means that you have to do some prep… Think of it this way… It gives you a break from the screen time and nourishes you at the same time. LOL.
