    Yes, we all know that we should eat certain amount of fruits and vegetables. I don't eat apples if I don't want, is it because my organism does not need them? I really want them when I catch a cold, then my body needs vitamin C. They are useful especially for the liver. And I like the saying: an apple a day keeps a doctor away 🙂

      Olga, cravings for certain foods can be an indicator that we need the nutrients that are in the food we are craving. It is interesting that you crave apples when you have a cold. I usually have a craving for oranges or grapefruit when I have a cold. God made our bodies in an amazing way, we just need to tune in more closely as well as educate ourselves as to healthy eating.

      Denny, it is never too late to start eating more color in our fruits and veggies. Of course, the younger we are when we start the more advantages there are to the aging process. So good for you in paying serious attention to what you are eating.

    I know I am guilty and don't eat nearly the amount of fruits and veggies that I am supposed to.  I have been buying more fruit for my family over the last few months.  I have noticed an increase in my grocery bill due to the higher cost of eating healthy.

      Christy, I’m glad you are seeking to eat healthier. My experience has been that we spend less money eating healthy. The best way to do it is to replace any of the unhealthy, processed foods with fresh real food. One of the services I offer at no charge is to help people assess what they are eating and make a plan to gradually convert to more healthy eating. Contact me for more details.

    If only more parents gave children fruits and vegetables in place of chips and candy…childhood diabetes wouldn't exist. I'm so thankful I taught my kids how to eat right, use quality nutritional supplements and keep their DNA tuned up to allow the body to utilize those nutrients properly. Great information, Pat thanks for sharing life saving tips.

      Mary, thanks for your question, “By the way, what is a grain oil?” I am always talking about grain oils and how important they are to our health so you are inspiring me to make this the subject of my next blog.
      Meanwhile, all grain has oil either in the heart or the husks and hulls. Those oils are very nutritious and essential to the cells of our body being healthy thus helping us be healthy. Modern technology has stripped those oils from our processed grains so most people do not receive them in their diet. Those grain oils are at the heart of the supplement company I work with.. see http://bestrealhealth.gnld.net/store/Product.aspx?NAV_CATEGORY_ID=3230&CATEGORY_ID=3269&PRODUCT_ID=11930&ATTR=allInfo for more info.
      I will send this to your email address. Meanwhile you are welcome to contact me at pat@bestrealhealth.com or 505-454-1195 Watch for more details in my next blog.

    I think we have gotten so twisted around because of the food pyramid that was wrong for so long (and still is, to some degree), and adding on top of it that our health isn't a priority for most.  It's very unfortunate!  I, however, am thankful that I have witnessed and felt first-hand how awesome raw fruits and many, MANY veggies can make you feel and look.  I'm getting back to that way of eating since having my twins.  It makes a world of difference… and it's true – you ARE what you eat!

      Jenny, we also love raw, colorful vegetables.. we also love them lightly stir-fried in olive oil.. so yummy.
      I would be privileged to introduce you to GNLD’s products. We have used them since 1985.. that’s over 27 years and in that 27 years I’ve looked at and compared many other supplements but never found any that are up to the standard GNLD sets. You can see the products at http://bestrealhealth.gnld.net/ They have many products so it is sometimes difficult to choose which ones to use.. I will be happy to work with you according to your individual needs by email pat@bestrealhealth.com or by phone: 505-454-1195.

    Coming from The Netherlands and living on this continent was a huge change for me in the beginning, because the only way you could buy your vegetable and fruit was in smaller stores where everything was fresh every day like in a bakery. Things have changed now; I love my vegetables, but you gave us a wealth of information again Pat….you would be a good teacher….have a great weekend!!

      Hi Olga,
      I’ve never had the privilege of living where vegetables were available fresh every day except for the times we have had our own garden.. that would be fun and interesting. I am on a mission right now to bring back the small farms and ranches.. the world would be such a healthier world.

    I love eating raw, fresh fruits and vegies… but unfortunately, in the rural areas where I have lived most, it's very expensive and hard to find the good food. I rely on supplementation… but beyond that I rely on blessing my food, asking God to make it GOOD!

    I've been reading your updates on FB and really appreciate the wealth of info you share freely with us – you are such a blessing, Pat!

      Susan, I certainly understand how expensive and how difficult it often is to find good fresh food.. we have the same problem especially in the winter months. I find that if you watch what is in season, fresh veggies & fruits are less expensive as well as more available. God does honor our blessings on our food especially when we are doing our part by making wise choices according to availability. We also rely on supplementation to fill the nutrition gaps from sources beyond our control. I am happy to hear you are benefiting from my FB updates.. feel free to comment or ask questions as that may also help someone else, too.
