Where does the energy which food creates come from? What kind of foods are most conducive to robust health, fitness, and well-being in all dimensions of our life? Why is it that some people choose to use food as a weapon which will ultimately lead to their own decline instead of choosing to enhance and protect “life”? What is a balanced diet, and should we be really counting calories? Is disease merely a matter of choice or chance? What role do we play in the genetic legacy we pass from one generation to the next? Do the principles which govern nature in the physical world around us also apply to our bodies?
This book examines what current research is discovering about the benefits of plant foods and how this fits into nature's design plan regarding optimal body function and health of body, mind, and spirit. It also explores the criteria one uses to make food choices, and how what we eat becomes part of a much larger view of the way we see the world and our place in the scheme of things. This book is not only useful for daily living, but is also provocative. It examines the food we prepare to put on our table within a contextual place setting which also provides food for thought.
