Welcome to Day 4! Here is the link to today’s video.
day four
Yesterday we talked about examples of nutrient dense recipes to feed ourselves and our families. Today we are going to discuss a different type of nourishment, and that is the nourishment we obtain from mindful wellness and primary foods.

The concept of primary foods is taught by Joshua Rosenthal at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. In his book “Integrative Nutrition”, Rosenthal writes:

“Primary food is more than what is on your plate. Healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career and a spiritual practice can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life. When primary food is balanced and satiating, your life feeds you making what you eat secondary.”

So this brings us to the question, how do we nourish ourselves in ways other than food? Please watch today’s video for some suggestions.
