HeConnection-Inspired“Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.”

When I saw this saying, it made me think of how I ate before our boys developed Type 1 Diabetes.  I thought we were eating well compared to most Americans.  I have learned so much since then.

Looking back, I am amazed to think how much of our food was from a package, which of course must be made in a plant.  Now four years after changing our diet and lifestyle, I feel so much healthier overall as we eat nearly all of our food from trees and plants rather than those manufactured in plants. I think the more we eat the right, fresh, organic, low glycemic, alkaline-forming vegetables, the better or health will be.
