I'm going to allow others, more intelligent than I, to do the talking for this post.  Here are some quotes that have inspired me, made me think, or flat out told me the truth, whether or not I wanted to hear it.

"The modern food and drug industry has converted almost the entire modern world into a new religion-- a massive cult of pleasure-seekers, consuming coffee, cigarettes, soft drinks, candy, chocolate, alcohol, processed foods, fast foods, and concentrated dairy fat (cheese) in a self indulgent orgy of destructive behavior, who believe that medications are their saviors for every resultant medical disaster." - Dr. Joel Fuhrman "Eat to Live"

"Health is normal. The human body is a self-repairing, self-defending, self-healing marvel. Disease is relatively difficult to induce, considering the body's powerful immune system. However, this complicated and delicate machinery can be damaged if fed the wrong fuel during the formative years. ... Healthy living with nutritional excellence throughout life can slow the decline of aging. It can prevent the years and years of suffering in ill health that is so common today as people get older and become dependent on medical treatments, drugs, and surgery. Nutritional excellence is the only real fountain of youth."  -Dr. Joel Fuhrman

“You cannot poison your body into health with drugs, chemo or radiation. “Health” can only be achieved with healthful living.” -T.C. Fry

“Most human illnesses and diseases are due to a deficiency of vital nutrients. When you supply your body with the proper nutrients, in a form that your body can use, it knows how to repair itself” -American Living Foods

"Chlorophyll can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine can. It acts to strengthen the cells, detoxify the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralize the polluting elements themselves." -Ann Wigmore from The Wheatgrass Book, 1985

“Any time you eat anything other than fruits and vegetables you’re eating food for some other reason than nutrition – you’re eating it for entertainment, for social value, to numb yourself or because you’re addicted to it.” -Dr. Doug Graham

“One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedents of chemical therapy over nutrition. It’s a substitution of artificial therapy over nature, of poisons over food, in which we are feeding people poisons trying to correct the reactions of starvation.” -Dr. Royal Lee

"We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons. " -Alfred E. Newman

Lunch today:  Mediterranean  wrap (red pepper hummus, mixed baby greens, yellow pepper, onion, tomato, broccoli sprouts, and a drizzle of dressing), pickle, and almond clusters drizzled with a tiny bit of honey for sweetness.  I didn't have plain toothpicks so I had to use the umbrellas.  It's okay though because I felt like I was on the beach, especially with how nice it's been here in Virginia!
