In my professional life and my personal one, I've seen food change people. In fact, food has changed me. Believe it or not, when I was a child, my favorite spot in the house was the candy drawer. Every day when I got home from school, I scooped out something sweet. I gradually realized, especially when I played sports, that the right food could fuel my body. And when my eating habits changed, I changed. I had more energy. I was in a better mood. I didn't get run-down or suffer from long streaks of blahness.

I've since seen plenty of evidence that of all the choices you make about your health, nothing has greater influence than the food you eat. Yes, food can break you, but it also holds the power to fix your body, prevent some diseases and reverse others, and help you feel healthier and more energetic overall. One of the most important ways to help your body do the great things it wants to do for you, day in and day out, is to give fruits and vegetables a pivotal role — not just a cameo appearance — in your diet.

Of course, knowing what to do and actually making it happen in a life that's already full can be two different things, which is why I've come up with some sneaky tricks to help.
