Food is Dead

I am mourning the loss of all things once fresh and palatable, now confined to a box for public viewing on a supermarket shelf near you. That’s right. All foods with an expiration date whose own freshness has long expired or been taken away.

If the saying holds true, “You are what you eat”, then you can see why you may be undernourished and exhausted. Food in its natural state is a perfect bundle of vitamins and nutrients, waiting to pass its life force and energy on to you. Foods found in boxes, bags, glass and cans have basically had the life knocked out of them; their “Chi” is gone. 

In order to make foods last, preservatives are added and enzymes taken away. Colorings and dyes are used to trick the eye into thinking what is fake is real.

So where am I going with all of this morbidity? The message is clear. If you want to feel healthy and alive, if you want boundless energy, clear skin and robust health, you must feed yourself foods up for the challenge. The only contenders that fit the bill are real foods, as close to their natural state as possible. Eat clean, green and healthy. It’s that simple.

So here is a challenge for you: Can you go one day without any processed foods? If you can’t make it past breakfast, then you have to change the way you think and eat. Our sustenance was meant to come from nature, not science. Let’s breathe some life back into our food, and ourselves.

If you take me up on the challenge, leave a message below to tell me how you did. It’s simple, but it ain’t easy!
