Is It Better To Get My Nutrition From Supplements or Food?

Tuesday Tip of The Day

“Is it better to get my nutrition from supplements or food?”

This is a question I get often. I always believe it’s best to get nutrients from our food, growing what you can yourself, getting food locally, bio-organic and pasture raised or organic in the stores.

Kale is abundant in the garden now and I can eat up to 10 cups of this a day in a salad, stew and with kale chips.

That’s a lot of nutrition right there. With nutritiously dense soups and stews this time of the year, (from bones and meat from local pastured beef) it doesn’t take a lot in terms of time or money to maintain good nourishment free of supplements.

However, I do personally additionally take MCT oil and EFAs and occasionally extra D3 K2 and magnesium as well as other trace minerals. I also cook with a lot of herbs and roots on a regular basis using food as my medicine.
