The potential to bring us together

Eating with family or friends is one of the best things you can do for your health. It’s actually such a good habit, that it will be included in the next food guide!

Studies have shown that eating a minimum of four meals a week as a family is beneficial. In fact, people who eat regularly with family or friends tend to eat more vegetables and fruits and drink less sugary drinks.

So I challenge you: For the month of March, eat at least 4 meals a week with your family. No need for it to be an evening meal; it can be a Sunday morning brunch, or even a breakfast before going to the office and/or school!

The proverb says it well, it is better to prevent than to cure!

What we eat every day, our eating habits, plays a huge role in our health. It is known that about ⅓ of cancers could be prevented with a healthy diet. This is even more obvious in the case of cardiovascular diseases; 80% of cases could be prevented with a healthy diet!

Whether it’s the DASH or MIND diet, the Mediterranean or vegetarian diet, all have some things in common that will help you put the odds in your favor for disease prevention:

Good news, a healthy diet for the heart is also good for the brain and the bones, as well as for the prevention of cancer, diabetes, and many other diseases!
