Fuel is a material that stores energy, to be extracted later, to perform work in a controlled manner. Vehicles perform optimally on a full tank of chemically engineered premium gas. Our bodies are much the same, in need of the right kind of "nutritional fuel" for peak performance. It is important to fuel our bodies with a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, and water. Eating well for life can be very simple and will keep your body nourished, energized, and strong. F.U.E.L. for Life is a nutrition-based blog focusing on planning, choosing, and preparing Food Unleashing Energetic Living - for Life!
