Niagara Gazette — Healthy recipes are made public on their website and that they conveniently place everything together to make for fast shopping. There is no excuse why you can’t eat healthy. Healthy foods are very appealing to the eye and walking through this store is one of the most educational class trips when it comes to food preparation and produce display. All I can say is, “Well Done Wegmans!”
Now I am in no way connected to Wegmans and have not been asked to write this article by anyone. This is me, doing what I do, trying to protect and promote health to the local population. What you put in your mouth has an absolute and direct effect on your physical outcome. This is where traditional medicine fails us. Going to your doctor for advice on keeping you healthy is usually not very helpful and most are disappointed. What are you eating? Are you getting benefits from raw fruits and vegetables? Do you get enough omega- 3 fats from walnuts, almonds, flax and chia seeds, olive oil or salmon? A colorful diet that minimizes bread and foods with ingredients lists will go a long way in promoting your health. There is no exercise, medication or supplement that can buffer the blow of an unhealthy diet. Now, with the help of local stores that have prepared healthy selections, you have easy access to better your health.
