Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” —Genesis 1:29

When God made Adam and Eve, he gave them an abundant array of plants to nourish their bodies. Plant foods are full of nutrients our bodies need for health. Dr. Mark Hyman says that the power of plants runs important functions in your body—food truly is medicine.

If you’re not used to eating fruits and vegetables, you’ll be amazed that your tastes will actually change the more you choose real foods. As you increasingly eat real food, your cravings for sugar and manufactured foods will be replaced by deep satisfaction from naturally sweet things. Experiment with a fruit or vegetable you’ve never tried before. Treat it as a taste of the garden of Eden.

Food for Thought: Every fruit and vegetable on the planet is nourishing, life-giving food for you to enjoy. It has the power to transform your health.
