Do You Know What You're Made Of?
If you were to look at your cells under a microscope, you would find essential fatty acids, hopefully – healthy ones. Sadly, when you eat trans fatty acids, an inferior substitute for repairing and maintaining your cells, your body misbehaves. It's like putting the wrong fuel in your gas tank. Isn't it ironic that your neighbor pays more attention to his automobile than he does to his own body? He knows his auto mechanic on a first name basis but has no doctor. He changes the oil in his car every 3,000 miles but refuses to go in for an annual check up. The very least we can do is understand what we're made of and eat the kind of foods that will fuel us properly and keep our bodies on the road for a long life. If you're not sure where to find essential fatty acids, visit the produce section of your neighborhood grocery store. Greens are high-octane fuel for your body. Give greens a try and your body will thank you. Have a great day.
