Food is important to life. It is the fuel to our internal machine. If you want your machine to run properly on the trail you must feed it the proper fuel. Nutrient rich plant based foods are key to healthy living. That, and just a little bit of movement is the key to fighting off so many of the leading causes of death in America. Chronic diseases are preventable and even reversible! The path to better health is even delicious! Read the poster below about kale and then go buy some and mix it with other veggies. I like mine with avocado. My mother dehydrates it and adds sea salt for a crunchy guilt free snack. The affects of a plant based diet are amazing. You will have more energy, better mood, and less need for medications. I challenge all readers to a week of a plant based diet. I’m sure you will feel better about life once the week is up.
