Resources To Help With Your Diet And Lifestyle

Do you want to eat healthier, live in a cleaner environment, feel better and contribute to others by sharing with them how you are doing it? There are so many ways to do it. Below you will find resources to help you with that. Some are edgy in how they present their views or facts and some are more mainstream and neutral. Either way, have fun exploring their views and making use of their resources.

We support your passion to live a life of purpose. No doubt, to live (it) to the fullest, we need to be healthy. As Co-Founder Bart Potenza of the restaurant Candle Cafe in NYC can be heard telling his customers and workers, "Go To 'Health'!" Eat up the information below and let us know what you've learned from these resources - such as what is organic, organic foods and more. Better yet, share with us some more resources or submit to us a story you are passionate about. Perhaps a story on organic farming, organic gardening, organic foods or organic herbs.

Know Your Body, Know Your World

"The human body is the universe in miniature. That which cannot be found in the body is not to be found in the universe. Hence the philosopher's formula that the universe within reflects the universe without. It follows, therefore, that if our knowledge of our body own could be perfect, we would know the universe." - Mahatma Gandhi

Finding an expert who can help you to know your body and connect better to the universe can be difficult. One person, Joanne DiMauro, has dedicated her life to being of service to others in this way. She brings the important factors of looking at your diet and health from a holistic point of view and knows that no one diet fits all. Check her out at Know Your Body.
