Food & Drink
The right foods help you not only to live but to live well. People often do not realize their food choices affect the way they feel, both physically and emotionally.
Why are Food and Drink Important?
Making healthy choices about what you eat and drink is a powerful way to help care for yourself. Food and drink give our bodies the fuel used to work properly, stay healthy, and fight disease. Choosing foods that nourish rather than harm your body may help prevent chronic conditions and the need for certain medications in the future. Food can also be used to help treat some health conditions.
The resources offered here will help you work to manage your food and drink for better health and well-being.
