Let Food Be Thy Medicine

Food has been used as medicine for centuries!  It’s actually so cool to see what it does when you really dig in! 

Food can reduce inflammation, cure chronic disease, improve mood, fix digestive issues, help you sleep, give you energy, and much more!  Food has feeds the mind, body and soul!! 

We are lucky to live in a time where these ancient remedies are now available to us 24/7!  About a year and a half ago I started getting big into Superfoods.  I had heard the buzz word thrown around a TON but I thought “yeah, I eat kale and quinoa!”  

Boy was I just hitting the tip of the iceberg! 

August of 2014 I was introduced to Shakeology which has over 70 Superfoods from around the world!  All ethically sourced, locally harvested and delivered to our doorsteps each month.  I was skeptical FOR SURE about the “so called benefits” of adding this type of nutrition to my diet.   But my results have blown me away…

1) I used to suffer from chronic back pain.  Now that is virtually eliminated.

2) I was being tested for IBS, Crohn’s Disease, and other digestive tract issues.  I have not had one symptom since the first week of drinking Shakeology.

3) I was an insomniac. My parents said I used to run marathons in my sleep (and that was IF I slept).  Now I am asleep within 15 minutes and I wake up in the same position.  I am thrilled to death that I sleep now!! 

4) I have stopped fluctuating in my weight.  For many years I would have bing swings of 5 to even 10 pounds in a very short span.  Now my weight is regulated.

5) Muscle. WOW! Can I just say that when you feed your body well on the inside it shows on the outside!  I have been able to put on 10 pounds of lean muscle in the past year and I owe it all to my nutrition. 

6) Due to the Superfoods that are called Adaptogens found in Shakeology, my mood has never been better.  I have more energy, I don’t crash mid-day and my anxiety / stress levels are dramatically lower! 

All of this from one serving of Shakeology a day!  This has been the one adjustment I’ve made in my diet for the past year and a half and it’s made all this difference!
