My sister-in-law, author of one of my favorite blogs, heallovebe.com, turned me on to Dr. Hyman. He has a few video clips on YouTube, (this was one of my favorites), that give you an interesting outlook on nutrition and how it affects the way your body functions. He suggests, and I strongly believe, that you can heal chronic conditions and other diseases with the food you're eating. Your digestion and what you're fueling with play such important roles in your body's immunity. Check out these videos!

This book is a very touching, personal, and at times comical story about Mina Dobic's struggle with cancer; including the diagnosis of it, and her choice to fight back with food rather than the doctor recommended chemotherapy and radiation. Mina is a strong, stubborn, and intelligent woman with a sense of humor and an appetite for life and love. It is a quick read that will make a big impression on you.

Maca also helps your tired muscles to regenerate faster, which will lead to more strength gains. I throw this powder into my morning smoothie and into my protein shake after a workout.
