You've probably heard the expression "you are what you eat." People often laugh off this expression or figure it's just something silly to say, but in actuality, there is a lot of truth to the notion that you are what you eat. The chemicals and nutrients in your food do get incorporated into your body. If you eat the wrong nutrients, not enough of certain nutrients, or too many of other nutrients, then you may not end up in peak health. That's why health foods are so important to discuss and learn about, and that's why we write about health foods here on this website.
