You *are* what you eat!

The figurative phrase “you are what you eat” gives us an easy way to remember that, as dynamic biological entities, everything we consume becomes part of the process of nourishing our bodies, whether we eat healthful items such as organic fruits and vegetables or processed foods full of preservatives and fillers. The food we consume is utilized by our bodies to replenish our nutrient needs as well as to provide energy, which works more efficiently when we choose healthful, whole foods with complete nutrient profiles, than processed foods which make more demands on our biological systems by offering unbalanced nutrients which challenge our physiological equilibrium.
