Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. This thousand-year-old quote is attributed to the father of medicine, Hippocrates, and is as relevant today as it was back in the day. Nutrients in different foods have numerous healing qualities, and one needs to eat right to maintain good health.
Living in a world crammed with fast-food chains and rising chronic diseases, it is important to understand the repercussions of having an unhealthy lifestyle. There are many food influencers who not only have an unequivocal love for food but also enlighten their followers about its healing powers.
Sylvia Fountaine, author of Feasting at Home is one such American food blogger who has taken it upon herself to spread awareness about eating right for overall well-being. Cooking meals from scratch can immediately impact one’s health. As a chef, former caterer and restaurant owner, Sylvia makes this simple.
Over time her passion for cooking has transitioned into teaching others how to cook nutrient-rich meals. Mixing her love for cooking with the voice inside her to leave a lasting impact, Sylvia is fully focused on creating healthy food choices that compel anyone to start eating right for a healthy mind, body, and soul.
According to the leading food blogger, the best way to heal is through a whole foods, plant-rich diet. This plant-based diet consists of whole foods that come mostly from plants, fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes; anything that is overly processed does not fall under it..
Sylvia shares how her relationship and experience with food have taught her that no size fits all is even applicable to our food choices. She says, “While I believe we are all genetically different and no one “diet” is right for all of us, all the time, consuming a whole foods plant-based diet from time to time can have extraordinary benefits.” “Perhaps the simple act of switching up our diet from time to time is the best, creating biodiversity in our gut. I like to think of this as eating with the seasons,” she further added.
Sylvia loves the idea of cyclical eating, eating and cooking with the seasons, as the best way to feel nourished and grounded.” In summer, I love to enjoy a wide array of veggies, fruits, and berries; in winter, I go for heartier winter squash and root vegetables, and in spring, I love piling up on lots of tender greens,” says Sylvia
Billions and trillions of dollars are poured into the production of medicines to cure ailments that stem from poor lifestyles and food choices. Perhaps we have forgotten the power of whole foods, how they can promote healing, provide you with the necessary fuel and reduce toxicity and inflammation from within. Sylvia aims to create awareness around the matter and uses her blog ‘Feasting at Home’ to do just that for her millions of monthly readers.
