This quote, and the article in general, really hits home in the context of our health-obsessed society. As my wife and I have been reforming our own eating and exercise habits, this is a great reminder.

In our attempt to create a more organic, natural lifestyle, it can be easy to begin looking down our noses at someone who isn’t on our bandwagon.
