I recently found this fascinating article about Natural Health Practitioners. Rita Louise, ND, of SoulHealer.com, discusses the important role prevention takes in the face of disease, and how eating “empty calories” often leads to nutritional deficiencies that leave the body and mind open to disease later on in life.
Interestingly, Louise says, “Although there IS a point of no return…it is surprising to see how well the body responds to nutritional correction.”
Food for thought…
And some for the body: here’s a healthy dinner full of nutrition and taste.
4 oz wild salmon
2 T balsamic vinegar
1 T local honey
Marinate salmon and then broil 5-8 min. Serves 1.
1 small sweet potato
1 head kale
1 head rainbow chard
1 head broccolini
1 hot pepper
4-5 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Chop garlic and pepper and saute in olive oil; add chopped greens and saute until still slightly crisp, about 5 min. Serve hot. Serves 4.
