Food is the New Medicine
People are Changing How They Think About the Environment and Their Health
Hippocrates said it first: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” And lucky for humanity, the thinking behind that sentiment is growing in popularity. And just in time. Never before have we been sicker through no one’s fault but our own.
Fast food, highly processed convenience food and an increasing number of hours in front of the TV have left Americans and most of the industrialized world in sorry shape.
But, as with things on the environmental front, the times they are changing.
We have a few folks here at Allard PPC and VRA Associates who’ve taken thinking like that of Hippocrates, the father of medicine, to heart. And with stunning results. This is in no way medical advice, but we’re happy to share that, by switching to a diet of whole plant foods rather than processed food, members of our team are seeing dramatic results in their health and wellness.
That’s not to say you have to make that dramatic of a shift to see results. Quite the contrary. Researchers are finding that any improvement gets results. So eating less meat, more veggies and fruits and getting out for a walk even a few times a week will give you positive results.
And with places like 3 Boys Farm, it’s now easier than ever to get to a place where food is medicine — but it goes down like gourmet fare.
Because it is.
In fact, 3 Boys motto is “Food is Medicine.” And they live by the idea that “If we are to eat responsibly, healthily, and locally, we must also grow our food that way.” So that’s how they do it.
Currently, 3 Boys only serves restaurants, but if this type of operation interests you, we urge you to check out https://www.localharvest.org/csa/ to find a similar operation near you.
In the meantime, feel free to give us a call anytime to find out how Allard PPC and VRA Associates can help you grow your business in a sustainable and, dare we say, organic, unprocessed way. We’re always happy to talk about the values that made us what we are.
