2021 Healthy Lifestyle Month launched in Bronx
By Robert Press
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 Was the Official Launching of Healthy Lifestyle Month
With the proliferation and exponential growth of organic products, plant-based menus and healthier beverages coupled with a strong increase in public curiosity of centuries-old religious dietary guidelines, give us the opportunity to return to the wonders of natural living. As we’re all aware, nature is built on an unadulterated system in which all of its components are perfectly customized to work symbiotically and seamlessly including our amazing human bodies.
For this trending reality, it is therefore reasonable to foresee this nascent industry of healthy products and services to continue to expand worldwide. This new consciousness of the importance of healthy living has unquestionably ushered in a paradigm shift in the attention given to the importance of healthy lifestyle in the 21st century forward. Religious Foods Festival is added to the Healthy Lifestyle Month activities.
