We always look for what’s healthy and rich, as Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote, in Physiologie du Gout,”Tell me what you eat I’ll tell you what you are” you are what you eat, this phrase is almost a fact, as our food provides our bodies with energy, it also provides us with chemicals that control our mood and physical health, many types of food have a huge effect on our chemicals, blood pressure, and some can work as antidotes and can even be after all a sort of medicine.

*bonus info: science is still researching the relationship between food and health, a quote by Hippocrates: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Is now a days showing up to be true, since our health is dependent on our food, most of our sicknesses’ solutions rely on how we eat and what we eat, also, some mental illnesses can be caused by food or the inflammation of organs caused by food, so to avoid all of that, us human beings, must start being really selective about what we eat since a large amount of our food is not organic or natural any more.
