Your Package Has Been Delivered! How our body reacts to a delivery!
It doesn’t matter how old you are, when you have a package waiting for you by the front door, it’s exciting! Our body reacts much the same way when you deliver it a yummy package of nutrient packed fruits and vegetables. The digestion system is yelling down the line that the package is coming and your body is gearing up to receive it. It’s like the fruit or veggie is the bus for all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, and fiber that are catching a ride on their way to work. Once they get off the bus, aka they’re digested, they all scatter to different functions in the body. Your body gives them their work assignment and off they go! Many stay together to fire up the body with plenty of energy, some head off to the heart to help it stay strong, some are assigned to the bones while others act as security guarding your body against potential disease forming substances. There’s plenty of job assignments that need to be filled each day and just like an assembly line, it runs a lot smoother and more efficiently when everyone shows up for work. That's the reason we need to fuel our bodies daily with a variety of fruits & veggies to ensure all our nutrients show up to work for our body!
