Food and Optimal Health

A few months ago, I went food crazy. (In a good way)

You see, we’re opening a cafe in Questers’ Way, and it’s important that the food choices support the purpose of the center. Part of that purpose is to help families live healthy, balanced lives. (With a lot of fun sprinkled in to everything we do, of course)

So, I went food crazy to find out how important what we eat really is to our overall health. Now, I’m already in good shape and have always eaten reasonably well. Here’s what I changed:

Eating only “single ingredient foods”. That means nothing processed or made with corn oil, soy, etc. Pretty much I’ve been eating lean meat, fruits, veggies, seeds, eggs, and supplementing with a high quality protein powder in my daily shakes.

Including healthy fats like avocado oil & coconut oil in the foods I prepare.

Getting carbs from healthy sources likesweet potatoes and whole grain rice.

The result? Increased energy, more muscle, and no joint pain. I can run without knee pain for the first time in years. I simply cannot believe how good I feel.

Yep, food makes a HUGE difference. Crossroads Cafe will not only serve foods that will help you feel this way, it will also help you learn to do this for yourself and your family.

    That’s pretty amazing that your joint pain is gone. I am going to be so happy to eat here before my weekly class-I will be able to eat healthy without needing to analyze it too much!

      Awesome Sharon! There’s a lot of research pointing towards certain processed foods leading to inflammation in the joints. Within a few weeks of eating clean, I could feel a difference!
