You are what you eat.
Food is medicine.
Many of us grew up with these adages whispered in our ears while our parents conned us into eating our broccoli.
I invite you to reflect on these statements.
What in your diet is contributing to high vibration, high energy, and optimal functioning?
What in your diet is contributing to low energy levels, lack of motivation and
poor mental clarity?
Food provides the body with fuel- the energy needed to for physical movement; doing pushups, stretching, dancing, digging in the garden and hugging loved ones. Food is the foundation for a vibrant, vital life.
Food is the petrol we put in our engines. If you put crap fuel into your tank, you can except engine performance to dwindle. Likely, you’ll even accrue greater costs later down the line due to breakages and malfunctions.
Our bodies are much the same. If we fuel our bodies with highly processed, chemical-laden food products, not only will we feel the effects in lack of energy and stamina, but processed foods are also leading causes of heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. Besides being extremely uncomfortable and unfortunate in daily life, these diseases will likely accrue massive financial costs down the line as sick people attempt to re-instate their body from dis-ease, to ease.
When you fuel your body with whole foods, you are optimizing its functions. Consuming energy and nutrient-dense powerhouses of plants support your bodies’ systems and allow you to do the things you want to do.
In In Defense of Food, Michael Pollen differentiates between food and ‘edible food-like substances’, which he states are a product of science rather than nature.
“Pollan proposes a new (and very old) answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. By urging us to once again eat food, he challenges the prevailing nutrient-by-nutrient approach — what he calls nutritionism — and proposes an alternative way of eating that is informed by the traditions and ecology of real, well-grown, unprocessed food. Our personal health, he argues, cannot be divorced from the health of the food chains of which we are part.”
Whole foods are perfect creations of nature. They contain complex information of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats that work together to form a WHOLE.
While an orange is high in vitamin C, it also contains fiber and sugars that work together to digest its intrinsic makeup. It is designed to be consumed in entirety to enable its contents to support each other in being absorbed by the body.
Just like humans- we are more than the sum of our parts. Your partner or best friend might be funny, kind, compassionate, and intelligent, but they are more than their components. It is their being in their entirety that somehow radiates the energy that attracts us to them.
We believe in the magic of whole foods.
We trust nature to provide us with the medicine we need to thrive.
That’s why we only use whole foods in our superfood smoothies and elixirs. Just as nature intended, we strive to combine her perfect creations to provide you with nutrient-dense fuel for the body to enhance its intrinsic vitality.
