Steamed Veggies With Chili- Lime Butter

I love food ! And my relationship with food has changed.

I eat mostly for health and pain relief but I will allow myself to indulge just a little.

Since my husband and I have gone to mostly plant based real food our bodies are rejoicing

(80 -85 percent of the time we are plant based )

For me my pain level has changed a lot.

And food as become our medicine. We enjoy real healthy clean food.

Inflammation is the body’s immune response to toxins as it works to “purify” itself. The resulting inflammation not only causes pain in the body. Over time, it also can trigger chronic diseases, and it becomes a vicious cycle. It’s never to late to eat for life!
