“I believe that functional eating is the most efficient and relatable nutritional principle that we must imbibe in this modern age and time to be able to overcome the poor health and lifestyle disease.
Whatever you eat or do, you have to be deliberate, intentional and also be informed of the health benefits of that food to your system.
I always say you are not just what you eat, but think and surround yourself with.
Functional eating is not boring though it means eating strategically to optimize your health. Here are two of such recipes with which you can tap into the benefits of food to reduce your blood sugar…Enjoy!” …Daniella
