Choosing foods and developing eating habits that nourish us well – body, mind and spirit. Eating well includes nutritious foods, time dedicated to eating without other distractions and eating in nurturing environments with people you enjoy.
Giving attention, time and energy to the people, activities and things that most enrich and empower quality of life; making life and lifestyle choices that show respect and gratitude to other people, our communities, the environment and ourselves – body, mind and spirit.
When we have access to food that is grown well, when we embrace a culture of eating well, when we are empowered within our community to live well, then we greatly enhance our capacity to be well. It is a cycle that continually pays and cycles forward.
