This week’s word: Diet

Diet is everything you put into your body. Have you ever tried keeping a written record of that? It comes as a surprise to almost everyone — we seem to be peculiarly ill-suited to keeping track of what we have eaten and drunk during the day. Here at Kuk Sool Won of St. Paul, we recommend a whole food, plant-based diet. “Whole food” means that the food is unprocessed or only minimally processed. Even if you are eating whole grain bread, the wheat has been highly processed (into flour) and mixed with, well, check the label. If it’s more than water, yeast and salt, I’d hesitate to call it bread. “Plant-based” means that most, if not all, of your diet comes from whole plants. Leaves, stems, roots, and some fruits and seeds. It’s a delicious and incredibly healthy way to eat.
