When she was younger, she was a track and field athlete; nowadays, she never misses a chance to exercise. She doesn’t believe in “diets” and “forbidden foods”, but in the connection between eating well, sanity and balance (the ancient Greek doctrines “μέτρον ἂριστον”), being physically active, living at your optimal level of health and performance in body and mind and the feeling of overall wellness. You can thrive through good food. Food is the basic source of health and vitality since it provides the nutrients our body needs, and certain foods can provide specific health benefits in multiple areas such as growth, weight control, gut health, immunity effectiveness, skin health and beauty, healthy ageing, fertility, cognitive performance and mental health, athletic performance etc. The values of eating go beyond being the source of nourishment for our body. Eating involves our entire life, encompassing social and spiritual components and 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!
