Health is often perceived as merely a number on the scale, percent of body fat, or amount of muscle mass. While these factors certainly affect overall health status, health is much more complicated than simply one’s outer appearance. Health is defined as the state of being free of disease, not the state of being 100 lbs. The human body is an extremely intricate and brilliantly designed machine. Everything the body does, from breathing to blinking and movements is run by extremely complex processes. In order for this elaborate being to function properly, it needs amounts of vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, unique to each individual. When you give your body what it needs it is able to effectively and efficiently fight off disease. Today, food is so far from its natural state. Most fruits and vegetables are genetically modified and sprayed with detrimental chemicals. Animals are no longer eating their normal diet and are fed processed grains and injected with hormones and antibiotics. True To Your Roots is about eating food that is closest to nature, free from these man-made manipulations known to alter health and cause adverse effects. This way you can become a clean, green, disease-fighting machine!
