Have you heard the superfood buzz? All the powders and potions and stuff you can send away for? Things that take time and big fat bux to order?
Is THIS what I am talking about when I say the word "super foods"?
Although these powders and potions might be beneficial and a good addition to your diet, I am talking about the powerful, nutrient dense, foods that are right in your local garden, field, grocery store or health food store! That's right! Common everyday foods are loaded with phytochemicals that raise the level of your health beyond what you might imagine.
On the superfood powder note: A key to balance in the body and eating in harmony with the earth, being one with our environment, means to eat as close to our home as we can. Local, fresh and organic produce is the best superfood one can aquire!
Sending away for foods grown on the other side of the planet, then consuming them, creates a confusion in the body. Say you are eating mangos, for example, the body living in a cold climate, gets very confused and after a while, can no longer tolerate the cold. Why are raw people cold? hmmmmm
On the converse side, on the east coast we are having hot weather. Our bodies naturally gravitate towards fruits and lighter fare. So eating mango from a hot climate might actually help us adjust better to the heat.
The key is to eat a lot of these local, organic, fresh foods in their whole, raw, natural state. This not only preserves the enzymes, by not cooking them, but it also does not alter their makeup.
Although some foods are better cooked , did you know a lot of foods change into something else when cooked? Some of the time, they is renderded useless for the body, with not much left over to use. Example: potatoes turn into a substance called acrilomide (plastic), when fried.
Then we enter into what is called leucocytosis, when something enters the body that is foreign and is not recognizable or usable to nourish and replenish the cells.The body then begins to attack it as an enemy.
Many bouts of leucocytosis, over and over again, occur before cancer sets in.
Adding super foods to the eating plan, minimizing cooked foods, will stave off these episodes where disease is being formed. Actually, the more these living foods are consumed, the better one's health is! How much leucocytosis do you want? Key is, not to eat foods foreign to the body.
