As soon as we started feeding Miguel (my son) solid food, he could not get enough avocado. tomato, hummus and fish. Why did he like those foods so much? My wife and I eat a lot of healthy foods such as these. I actually have had these foods consistently the last eight plus years. I have also not missed a day of work in over a decade because I was sick. Doctor Amen the author of the book, Use Your Brain To Change Your Age said it simply “Being sick is expensive.” HealthPrize Technologies did a survey which found that many people hate to take their medicine — and this has become such a problem that it costs the US an estimated $290 billion and 125,000 deaths a year. When you are eating well, you have more energy and often get to take less medication. There are foods like carrots that are good for your skin and can help you look younger. I eat carrots about five times a week. I still get carded sometimes at the wine store…which always brings a smile to my face, since I’ll soon be 40. Don’t forget that those little people around you, not only like to copy what you say but also what you eat. The healthier you are the more people you can positively impact throughout your life.

It is a science for them, and they often bring their food wherever they go and weigh it to make sure that are eating the right amount for their fitness goal. If you are serious about leadership, I am gently reminding you to think twice about the food you are feeding your family and your mind and soul, on a daily basis. I actually start my day with a shot of wheatgrass and then do my morning exercises for 40-45 min. Ideal to get your heart rate up for more than 30 minutes the professionals tell me. Remember that when you eat well you have built the foundation for many years of leadership!
