“Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food”. – Hippocrates.
This millenary advice has been around for two thousand years for a reason. Scientific experimental methods have now provided us with evidence about healing components, molecular composition and micronutrients in our food. Nutritional medicine is about combining meals with micronutrients that target a certain condition and prevent or stop its progression. It is an easy-to-follow approach for choosing the right foods to improve your life.
Why is people not eating as good as they could?
To make something taste good is easy, but for it to make you feel good after, and which is delicious as well is a challenge. We take this very personally and go the extra mile to identify combinations of healing ingredients without sacrificing the pleasure. Our nutrient choices feed your soul by providing flavorful whole foods rich in healing properties in a delightful meal. What we usually hear people say :”I can’t believe this is actually good for me!” They realize that even if eating to the point of satisfaction, they feel full and energized, and not drowsy. This is, after all, the forgotten purpose of eating! We have been doing it for too long without considering reasons, but it is never too late to start re-learning how to eat.
