How to Eat
To Be Healthy in the United States
Monica P. Castaneda, Marco E. Castaneda
Monica and Marco Castaneda met at a health food restaurant where they often ate lunch. This health food restaurant was part of a school called the Art of Living, and offered classes in healthy food preparations, as well as a healthy lifestyle that regarded physical, emotional and mental nutrition as essential aspects of a healthy life.
During their time participating in the events organized by this school they saw many people heal from a number of health conditions, while making no other changes than in their nutrition.
Marco was born in the United States, and Monica in Ecuador, South America. The Art of Living School was in Quito, Ecuador. When they moved to live in the United States as a young married couple, even though they knew well "how to eat" within a culture that holds cooking and family meals as a high cultural value, it was hard to translate those values for the United States, where most people seemed to be overworked and stressed out, and where eating "junk" foods was becoming the norm.
After almost two decades of living together in the United States, Marco and Monica decided to write a book to share how they have managed to eat in order to be healthy in this country - even with the challenges of busier lifestyles and seemingly less time to prepare healthy foods. Their conclusions about nutrition can be summarized in four "R" words:
This book is not about lecturing people into eating in any particular way, but rather it is a comprehensive guide that helps people see where they are on their path to healthy eating, and then make the small changes that lead to improvement.
