How Your Food Choices Affect The World Around You

Our choices, when it comes to eating, have more power than we realize.


Our choices, when it comes to eating, have more power than we realize. I’m a businessman and there is nothing I love more than a deal that is truly win-win. Nutrition is one of those rare win-win-win-win situations in life where what is best for us health-wise is also what is best for the world around us, for the animals we share this planet with, for the beauty and health of the natural world, and even, I would humbly suggest, for the care of our self and soul. What we eat is not just personal; it is political and of great consequence to the communities in which we live- local, regional, national, and even global.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
