Simply put, wholesome is conducive to good health, physical and moral wellbeing. It is what you eat, breathe, and live. The Internet has brought us a new world of discovery, information at the tip of a click, connectivity, and (sadly) confusion. To say the least, “confusion,” is one of the reasons I decided to write this blog- I want to be wholesome, and I am "(Sam)"!
In just a few words, a wholesome lifestyle is about superfoods, "(I don't like green eggs and ham, I do not like them, Sam-I-am)," a nutrient-dense diet, which in turn, is rich in vitamins, minerals, "(Try tem, try them, and you may)," other nutrients important for your overall health and consist of all organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains, proteins, legumes, nuts, and seeds . It’s about understating proteins, carbs, fats, vitamins & minerals, and their roles in the body. It’s about knowing what to do with your gut microbiome, chronic inflammation, and degenerative diseases and saying away from sugars, starches, bad fats, GMO, foods with additives and over processed foods. Knowing where our food comes from is also crucial to our health. (It's not about what is, it's about what it can become),",Finally, it’s about connecting the dots and creating the connection between mind-body and spirit.
("Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's NOT)."
Inspired by Dr. Seuss
Are you handsome or wholesome? ("Why fit in, when we are born to stand out)"
