  • Healthy Lifestyle Guidelines

    Healthy Lifestyle Guidelines is easy to read and understand and should be in every home. It simplifies a healthy lifestyle with meal planners and recipes that assist readers to make comfortable adjustments to suit each individual’s need. It also explains Nature’s importance as well as purpose in our existence. It is aimed to help those who wish to improve their health, quality of life and longevity. It further demonstrates ways of how disease can be avoided, and even reversed or eradicated. We are what we eat and we become what we eat. Food should therefore be our medicine and not our toxins. It should build us up and not break us down. We have one life to live and only one body to get us through this journey. When struggling with food choices, we feel restricted when we say “I can’t have it but I do want it.” Perhaps we should change our way of thinking and train our mind to say “I can have it but I don’t want it.”
