Wellness by prioritizing Food First? Well, Yes.

If your ultimate goal is attaining optimal health, then prioritizing high quality whole food first is the only way to go. as Focusing on anything other than these nutrient dense real foods is putting the “cart before the horse”.

This site’s primary focus is to educate people on the place these high quality foods should take in one’s everyday lifestyle. Prioritizing exercise, supplements, and god forbid, drugs and procedures before sustainable, beyond organic, organic and naturally grown food is a huge mistake.

We ALL need to be proactive with our nutritional regimen or “diet". By implementing the increased intake of completely natural nutrient-dense whole foods and weaning yourself off of convenience foods, fast foods, altered foods, and even genetically modified foods, you will find yourself looking and feeling better than ever before. Do you really have any idea of how great you can look and feel?

Relying on health care is a reactive approach to one’s well-being that will always fall short, as the concept of health care in this country is not health care at all, but conversely is sick care. Be fair and honest with yourself, by taking drugs and undergoing procedures, does your disease actually go away, or are you just treating the symptoms?

“America's health care system is in crisis precisely because we systematically neglect wellness and prevention.” 
-Tom Harkin

EVERYBODY'S best bet is to get healthy and stay healthy. If you are interested in the best way to become truly healthy, look and feel better, and live up to your genetic potential, I hope you have found a HOME!

Here are my goals for you and this site:

1. To develop a community of like minded people that are interested in attaining optimal health for themselves, and their families, by prioritizing food first.

2. To encourage the support of local farmers that produce high quality and sustainable foods. And to enforce the belief that by doing so you will not only be benefiting yourselves, but your local economy, environment and planet.

3. And finally, to provide a forum to allow you opportunity to not only grow in your knowledge concerning attaining optimal health, but also to share your stories on local foods of the highest quality.

Because of my passion for real food and focusing on it first, this site will never recommend, offer, or sell any type of supplement. The focus of my work is completely proactive, and I believe if you follow a nutritional regimen that is loaded with high quality foods there should be no reason to supplement it in any manner. Ever!

Remember, their is nothing more important than your health. The future results of a healthy nation are more than far-reaching; your family will thank you, your economy will thank you and your planet will thank you. I will thank you! But more importantly, you will thank yourself!
