As Hippocrates would say, " Let Food be your medicine and medicine be your food. " 

I would like to share with you a few things about food
 
that I have learned about from a book called 

" Change You Brain Change Your Body "

by Daniel G. Amen, M.D.

( Pg 83-84 ) 

By the way, He has Published 24 other books 
 and is a clinical neuroscientist, psychiatrist, and 
brain imaging expert who heads

        We are what we eat!
        Though out our life, our bodies make and renew cells. What
        we consume on a daily basis affects our brain health and body
        health.  
        Cells grow and are regenerated through what we put in our  
        mouth.
      
       For optimal nutrition we must consume proper nutrition.
       
       Fast Food Diets = Fast Food Brains and Overweight bodies..
    
       Eating right for the body and the brain is what it's all about..! 


          Food is a drug and has a way of influencing our mood and 
      energy levels..

      Kids eat sugar and start bouncing off walls, adults
      drink coffee and become impatient and demanding..
     
     
      Food can also make us sleepy, spacey and feel  like we need a 
      nap. 
     
      Good healthy, nutritious food is the kind of fuel that gives us  
      amazing energy that will last for hours.
     
      Our diet has an effect on every aspect of your physical health 
      and well being
      
      When we eat a healthy diet we look healthy..
          
      Alright! Here we go! 
       
      Let's create this wonderful healthy salad!
