We truly, literally, are what we eat. I invite you to pause a moment and let that sink in.
Food is not only the fuel that makes your body run, what you eat forms the building blocks for your cells, for your child’s cells. Our babies, our children are what they eat—physically, mentally and emotionally—literally made of what we give them or allow them to eat.
Once we really understand this—witness the truth of it—we will see every food choice with new eyes. We will clearly see food as energy, as fuel, but also as forming and regulating every cell in our body—as immunity boosters and powerfully healing and sustaining.
We’ll want our food and our children’s food—including snacks, treats, holiday favorites—to have the most light and life force possible and the sugar-filled, chemically-loaded faux foods will no longer have power over us, no matter how skillfully they market to us, no matter how deceptively they are packaged.
We all deserve new traditions based in health and the true happiness that results from eating well—the joy that comes from an empowered life, caring for our bodies and our planet, too. -LeAnn Brown, excerpt from l&l life. Read the full post here: Do they really have us that spellbound?
Do you know what regenerative agriculture is? How soil health directly impacts our human health? How the gut microbiome and diversity on the micro and macro level directly impacts our children’s quality of life and our ability to thrive as a species on this plant?

If you would like more information or have any questions, I’m happy to pass along all the (free) resources and research I’ve discovered on my own journey to understand our current health care and food systems and the paradigm shift that needs to happen for the health and wellbeing of our families and future generations on the planet.
