Honor your Body, the third principle of Power Living, is about maximizing your physical energy for peak performance and optimum health. One key way to do this is to eat strategically – managing your energy flow throughout the day by following the “7 Rules of PWR Eating.”

From Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda to African and Native American traditions, seasonal eating has been a practice of many indigenous and ancient cultures.
