Back to Nature

Phytochemicals are the future for healthy living. Many people get phytonutrients every day and don't even know it. Our parents and their parents always said, "Eat your vegetables! They are good for you." But no one really knew why, until now.

Back to Nature

Phytochemicals are the future for healthy living. Many people get phytonutrients every day and don’t even know it. Our parents and their parents always said, “Eat your vegetables! They are good for you.” But no one really knew why, until now.

We now know that the active substances in fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes help prevent disease and cancer. The very substances that are responsible for their color, flavor and disease resistance help keep us healthy.

How simplistic is that? That natural food– not processed, enriched with chemicals, steroids or artificial anything– is what we need to eat to remain as healthy as possible. Back to nature equals back to simplicity. We need to slow down and weed our gardens.

Our fast-paced lives have developed into fast-paced eating, which leads to foods that are, essentially, unhealthy. You can help counteract unhealthy foods by eating fresh produce. And unlike vitamins and minerals, phytochemicals do not appear to diminish when subjected to cooking or processing.

No matter how big your yard is, no matter how little time you have, no matter how little money you have; you can have a garden. Plant a few tomato plants, a couple cucumber vines, some carrots and watermelons; water as often as you need.  And you my friend are on your way to healthy eating.

Your body will thank you when you cook with fresh produce. You will reap the benefits emotionally, as well, as physically. Gardening is good for mental stimulation and uses every muscle group.

Stay informed and stay healthy!
