CONNECT TO YOUR FOOD FOR BETTER HEALTH
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21
Our modern society is disconnected from our food perhaps more than any other people that have lived before us. As a result we have alarming rates of disease and a majority of our population is clueless about how to achieve optimal health as well as how their food is produced.
In order to achieve better health, we must develop a closer relationship with the food we eat. And whether we live in a one bedroom apartment or have hundreds of acres, all of us can work towards connecting more to the food we eat.
