Do you treat your car with utmost care and respect? Tank filled with Ultra-Supreme? Regularly scheduled oil changes? Nothing like a little preventative maintenance to keep ol’ Bessie’s engine humming, right? But what about your body’s own engine? You know, the one that’s expected to give you unlimited mileage and last a lifetime? Run it on a steady stream of hamburgers, fries, potato chips and beer, and it’s bound to end up in the shop.
Many people take their bodies for granted until something goes wrong, and then they expect a quick fix, just as they do with their cars. But by the time the doctor tells you there’s something seriously wrong “under the hood,” it may be too late. Some parts simply can’t be replaced. However, with 70 percent of illnesses having a dietary link, preventative maintenance may be as simple as making smarter food choices. Remember: If you ignore your health for long enough, it’ll go away!
So don’t be fuelish! Fill ‘er up with whole, natural, nutrient-filled foods and gas up regularly. Green foods give you the most mileage—veggies like broccoli, asparagus, kale, spinach, watercress, bok choy, Swiss chard and other leafy greens, along with any brightly colored vegetables and fruits. Summertime is the perfect time to take advantage of Mother Nature’s Premium-Quality Gas-o-Lean. It’ll rev up your engine, extend your cellular warranty and keep your spare tire from inflating!
