Is your food supplying the nutrients your body needs? While we all might think we eat pretty healthily, the reality is far different than we might expect.
To shed some light on this subject, I want to invite you to join me in a conversation I had recently with Jordan Rubin, author of the New York Times bestselling book The Master’s Diet, founder of Garden of Life products, and a committed health food advocate and educator.
This is the second part of the Healthy Eating series with Jordan Rubin.
PT – What is wrong with the food we buy and eat today?
Jordan – It is very hard to encapsulate this question into a short answer. But I will say this – when it comes to eating, first of all, we need to eat foods that God created, and secondly, in a form that’s healthy for the body. I believe what we are getting from the conventional food chain nowadays breaks one or both of these rules. I have let these two principles guide me for the last 16 years to stay healthy. Despite the great health food stores and even the farmers’ markets, I still feel there is a lot of confusion out there. Many people want to eat organic and most of us don’t know what exactly that means. In the marketplace, there are plenty of organic foods which are unhealthy for you. My quest for the last 16 years has been to find and/or raise food and beverage that are beyond organic – to an unequalled level of quality with purest and densest natural nutrients.
