Welcome to our nutrition blog!
At Protea, we believe food is the cornerstone of good health. What we put into our bodies creates a powerful ripple effect, affecting how we feel, perform, live and look. What we eat is just as important as how we eat and when we eat. Countless books have been written about what to eat and what to avoid, with promises of results stemming from small and incremental to large and life-altering.
The result? Confusion and a strange relationship we have developed with food. We want to break down some myths about nutrition and eating, in order to empower you to make choices for your own body. Each bite you take either adds to good health or takes away from it. We want to treat the whole person preventatively and holistically with nature’s most powerful tool: food!
We also believe that food, with the ability to feed your cells, fuel your muscles, increase your vitality and strengthen your longevity, is just part of the puzzle. Just as important to wellness is what we call “primary foods:” social and emotional aspects of your life which require balance as well. We will also explore this subject in our weekly posts.
We love to help, listen, and guide you in your path to optimum nutrition and disease prevention. After all, life is complicated but nutrition doesn’t have to be. It can be delicious, fulfilling, fun, and empowering. Let’s dive in!
“Maintaining order rather than correcting disorder is the ultimate principle of wisdom. To cure disease after it has appeared is like digging a well when one feels thirsty, or forging weapons after the war has already begun.”
– Nei Jing , 2nd century BC
