We all know the importance of eating healthy. What we put into our bodies is what we get out of them. By eating properly and exercising, we will have more energy doing the things we love to do, and we won’t have to depend on medications later on in life. With farmer’s markets out there and the ability to share healthy recipes, we can all make better choices, and learn that eating healthy is not only beneficial to our health, but it can be tasty too with some added flava, and it doesn’t have to cost us a lot of money. We just need the right resources for buying, and to learn different ways of cooking. And above all else, we do know for certain that we always have the ability to pray over our food, by thanking God for our food and asking Him to bless it before we eat it… All in the name of Jesus. Amen!
