The Basics of Good Health


I once heard a Rebbetzin say that every Jewish mother should know basic nutrition.  But it's hard to wade through all the information, some of it even contradictory.    The following articles have done that for you and get down to the basics in a practical way.  However there are some basic principles that always apply.  We need to return to wholesome, seasonal, unprocessed and chemical-free eating.  We really do need to accept that we may need to make some changes to ensure our good health.    In the words of Mireille Guiliano, author of 'French Women don't get Fat', "The best cook in the world can't make good food from poor ingredients; and it takes a perverse genius to turn great ingredients into bad food." Eating well is an investment both in health and in taste and enjoyment. 

Read through this important and straight-forward guide and you will be well on the way to understanding how to provide the best for your family's good health.
