It is never to late to transform your health!

Research continues to find that it is urgent that we remove processed foods from our diet as and replace them with whole foods whenever we can. 

It's urgent because processed food negatively impacts our health, especially our cognitive health as we age. If you are over the age of 50, it's not too late. It's possible to significantly improve your health by making a few simple changes. 

Why do we believe this? In her early 70's, my Mom (Dorothy) discovered she suffered from the genetic heart condition that claimed the lives of her siblings in their 70's. Rather than accept that fate, she researched the condition and how to prolong her life.

She learned how food is medicine. By making simple changes to her diet and following 9 rules each day, she lived a full life until she was 95 - both mentally and physcially sharp. She was completely convinced anyone could do this.

A foundation of her diet was a bowl of grains and seeds she ate every single morning, which we affectionately nicknamed "The Gruel." Dorothy's Power Gruel is a clean, nutritious food that delivers what our bodies naturally want and need for optimal health. It's far more nutritious than a typical bowl of grains, with no additives or preservatives and ingredients are certified organic,

Dorothy's Power Gruel

    With 14g of protein, 8g of dietary fiber (a great source of prebiotics!), and an amazing nutritional profile (not to mention a long list of known health benefits), you won't find another bowl of grains like it. Want more protein? There is a growing list of delicious, creative and healthy recipes that let you customize The Gruel™ to meet your taste or nutitional needs. 

    Just look at this nutrition label. It's one small change you can start with on your journey to remain sharp and active your whole life!
