Healthy habits day 5 – eat whole foods
There’s nothing like eating foods that give you great energy and nourish your body (cells, bones, blood, skin, eyes, teeth, hair, brain). I believe the only way to get the best nourishment possible is through whole natural foods.
What are whole foods? You find whole foods in plant-based sources such as vegetables, fruits, and nuts as well as free range eggs, poultry, fish and grass fed beef. My definition of a whole food is one that IS NOT PROCESSED at a factory but rather in it’s natural state (with the exception of meats and poultry).
Whole food is unprocessed, pure and simple right from the source.
A good rule of thumb when purchasing whole food at a market is buying food that is not packaged, boxed, bagged, or in a can.
- Nuts / seeds
- Fresh fish and meat from the butcher
- Oats and barley
Practice eating whole foods as a majority of your food source everyday. When you become conscious of eating this way you find more whole food sources, learn how to make interesting whole food recipes and begin to feel better with more energy, clear thinking. You will also see a big change in your skin, eyes, hair, and nails because each of these areas is getting a rich supply of vitamins and nutrients.
Eating food from sources that have never been alive and received earths rich blessing of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals leaves you empty and your body and mind sick.
Eating from whole food sources filled with the good earths nutrients, vitamins, and minerals leaves you ALIVE and able to live life to the fullest.
