023: Return to Food with Sherry Strong
Sherry Strong, food philosopher and nutritional strategist, is a woman with a mission: to help people rebuild a healthy relationship with food, their body and the planet.
Millions of people are not eating real food. They are eating something cleverly designed to look, smell and taste like it but often has the opposite effect of real food. There is a point in processing where the food is so far from its natural state that it no longer serves the purpose it was intended for; nourishing, energizing and protecting the body so that the species eating it can live, thrive and propagate. In fact, most processed foods actually become toxic and addictive. This type of “food” has been stripped from precious nutrients in order to extend shelf life and increase profits. This renders the food nutrient deficient and addictive thus perpetuating a cycle of malnourishment and addiction leading to obesity and triggering thousands of other diseases.
