Energy, Food, and the Circle of Life
Energy from the sun is harnessed in the earth's natural resources; passed around in a cycle between plants, animals, and minerals. Sunlight is transformed by plants into energy and stored as different forms, primarily starch, which can then be eaten by animals and, once again, be used as energy.
When your foods include beans, peas, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds, you are giving yourself and your family the benefit of the energy and healing properties of natural antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals, soluble fiber, healthy fats, protein, and slower burning carbs.
We are Stardust*
*We are stardust, from lyric by Joni Mitchell, 1969
