When she was younger, she used to be a track and field athlete, and nowadays she never misses a chance to exercise. She doesn’t believe in “diets” and “bad foods”, but in the connection between eating well, sanity and balance (the Ancient Greek saying “Metron Ariston”), being physically active, and living at your highest level of health and performance in body and mind and the feeling of overall wellness. Food is your most valuable ally in your quest for health and well-being. It is the basic source of health and vitality since it provides you with the nutrients your body needs, and healthy foods can provide added health benefits in multiple areas such as growth, weight control, gut health, protection, skin health and beauty, healthy ageing, fertility, mental health, performance etc. The values of eating goes beyond being the source of nourishment for our body. Eating has the power to satisfy the harmony of the senses that foods promote, especially the taste sensation which offers pleasure and the feeling of fullness or the feeling of being charged with energy.
Good health through foods and good taste can go hand in hand!
