Organic Food Heals!

On our way back from the triathlon today, we happened up a very small organic farm and restaurant in Waukee, Iowa. We were served by a young boy, probably 13 years old, who explained to us that everything they serve, excluding rice, is grown on their farm. As we enjoyed our organic vegetarian meal, and topped it off with some aloe juice, we read the chalk board at the head of the dining room:
MEDICINE DOES NOT BUILD THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, ORGANIC FOOD DOES.
I think it's important to remind ourselves of this on a regular basis. By eating fresh, living fruits and vegetables, which contain more nutrients and fewer toxins when grown organically, we are providing our body the natural tools needed to stay strong and healthy.

L.T. Organic Farm Store & Restaurant is a place I highly recommend if you are ever driving through Iowa on Interstate 80. They also hold meal management, nutrition, and cooking classes, and give farm tours. Their phone number is 319-987-3561.
