‘You are what you eat’, is a much repeated adage which is less understood and hardly ever embraced. In the pace and stress points of the modern world, the food that we eat only serves to satisfy our hunger, titillate our tastebuds and in some cases, fill a deep-seated psychological need for security or love. Most often, what we eat has very little connection with what each of us really needs to eat.
