"You are what you eat" is so true and I can't emphasize enough how critical proper nutrition is in terms of fighting disease and the overall physical aging process, maintaining a high level of energy, preserving a youthful appearance and keeping a positive frame of mind, just to name a few of its many benefits.

Yet it often surprises me how little some people understand about even just the basics of nutrition, behaving as if they believe cake and potato chips contain the same nutritional value as steak and potatoes, and the same number of calories! As much as we may wish it were otherwise, that's simply not true and behaving as if it were will be disastrous to one's physical health, appearance and mental state.

Self empowerment includes understanding and accepting that you alone are responsible for your own health. So if you're not sure whether your diet is providing all the nutritional requirements your family needs in the correct proportions, please review the basic information below. This is by no means an exhaustive treatise on the subject, but it will supply the basics of what you need to know in order to properly evaluate nutritional labels on grocery products and plan nutritionally sound meals for your family.
