The foods you eat affect so many things — from the shape of your body, to the way your mind thinks, to how you feel physically, emotionally, and mentally. Nutritious food can help you fight disease, build muscle, improve your mood, and restore your sleep.

Think of food as fuel for your life — not just your body. It helps give you energy you need to do what you love. Eating healthy is a good habit that often leads to other good habits, such as physical activity. Fill yourself with nutrient-rich food, and you may find yourself filled with the urge to go for a walk or ride a bike.
