The food you eat plays a critical role in your health & happiness, but primary food truly nourishes you & makes your life extraordinary.
WHAT IS PRIMARY FOOD?
We have a philosophy about food – everything we consider a source of nutrition is really just a secondary source of nourishment, The foods you eat are secondary to all other aspects of life that feed you. We call these parts of life primary food.
Healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career and a spiritual practice can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life. When primary food is balanced and satiating, your life feed you, making what you eat secondary. Food can fill you but it cannot fulfill you.
For example, many people spend hours each day watching television and surfing the Internet. You can eat all the broccoli and brown rice in the world, but if you are isolated and lonely, you won’t be living life to the fullest. We are fed not only by food, but also by the energy in our lives.
We take in the experience of life in thousands of ways. We hunger for play, fun, touch, romance, intimacy, love, success, art, music, adventure, and spirit, All of these are essential forms of nourishment. Everything is food.

Most people spend 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week at work. that adds up! Are you passionate about your job and do you love the people you work with? If not, chances are that it takes a toll on your health. Finding work you love is essential to living a healthy, balanced life.
Some people follow the spiritual path their parents grew up with, while others explore new traditions. Almost all forms of spiritual practice come down to one thing: the more we bring our individual lives into alignment with the whole of existence, the more we feel nourished and at peace.
Our bodies thrive on movement and quickly degenerate without it. Exercise can take simple and modest forms, like getting off the subway or bus stop one stop earlier and walking further to your destination. Making physical activity a simple, daily habit greatly increases your health and happiness.
