Food Heals.

If you have not yet seen the above video, please take the time to watch. This woman cured herself from MS via diet. If that doesn't give you goose bumps and get you excited about eating right, I don't know what will!
I believe emphatically that food has the ability to either make us sick or make us thrive. Actually, it's not belief, it's fact. The reason Atlas CrossFit has a blog about nutrition is because it is a very big piece of the puzzle that many of us do not even realize, or , more likely, choose to ignore.
Still not reaching your performance or body composition goals? The answer is nutrition. Recall the CrossFit pyramid of health, the very base of the pyramid is nutrition. We eat roughly 3 times a day, 7 days a week - that's a lot of opportunity to either add to, or subtract from your health! Ask yourself if there is something from your diet you are missing, perhaps more green leafy vegetables? Quality sources of protein? Actually ask yourself at each meal; "Will my body view this as a poison?", "Will this help me to thrive, or make me sick?"

  1. Wow thanks for this link. Just listened to it and it's very helpful and informative. I came to your site from Google after looking up how to make Kale crisps! Thanks for the recipe too - just made them and they're delicious.
