It seems simple, but eating a healthy diet is really one of the best things we can do for our health. However, we are still not using food to it’s full potential. Healthier foods might seem more expensive up front, but if anything is worth a premium, surely it would be our health. Below is a great infographic (from Bipartisanpolicy.org)  to illustrate this point.

So how can we let food be thy medicine? By purchasing high quality, nutritious, whole foods, and by making investments that make healthy choices easier and more enjoyable. Creating healthy habits is the ultimate way to invest in your health. What healthy habits do you want to establish?
