When you decide to eat out, do you ever wonder if the place you eat is certified as “Healthy Eat”?

Time had an interesting article in 2012. It alluded to a new certification program for restaurants called SPE – Short for sanitas per escam (Latin for health through food).

SPE is a new way for restaurants to highlight and follow strict criteria for serving healthy fare.

SPE focuses on using local, seasonal ingredients and cooking to maximize the nutritional value of ingredients.

While northeasterners are lucky, unfortunately we are yet to have a restaurant in Texas that is SPE certified.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
