What we eat affects the quality of our bloodstream, which is our foundation. Even though a whole natural foods diet is one of the most accessible tools for maintaining health, it is often the most difficult to attain. Comfort, convenience, habits, social situations and traditions influence every day food choices. At Ionia, we are patiently exploring what makes that choice for whole natural foods so difficult, while bringing about an environment of healthy eating habits. We choose organic, plant-based natural foods – a rich variety of whole grains, beans, and vegetables from land and sea. Combined into meals according to macrobiotic principles of balance, this simple food is the heart of our world.
