These people run our so called ‘health’ care systems.
How they look and how the system is is actually a good match, and I could go down that rabbit hole, but this post isn’t about that.
During this time, I realized even more how screw up our system is, yet it’s considered normal. By that, I mean, I have to wear a mask out so as not to ‘catch’ a virus, but people are loading up their shopping carts with junk foods, highly processed foods, alcohol and smokes and that’s ok. Oh, and wearing the same mask they wore yesterday, the day before and so on…….. That’s normal?
Why not teach about boosting immune systems naturally?
More money in vaccines and drugs.
Yet, it goes far beyond that.
This is not a bitch post but a post of saying your health is important and your body is an amazing miraculous thing – when given the right environment – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
ALL f them. – together
We just have forgotten and very few are teaching that. That is where you will find miracles – because, at our depth of who we are – we are magic.
Which, btw I let go of any and all labels of what I am eating (ie Vegan etc) and allow my body to guide me.
I also studied in depth and used EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or Tapping on many clients in the past with great outcomes. I created a little book on what it is, how to use and why when I was working with clients. It’s a great tool anyone can use on themselves – easy to learn, quick and works great on stress, anxiety, fear and many other emotions. Download for free here.
It works well and is considered Energy Psychology. More and more energy modalities, techniques and technologies will become main stream – exciting times.
To self empower is one of the greatest gifts one can give oneself.
So much out there that we don’t know and that has been hidden from us.
Stop buying into so much fear porn and dig deeper. This is a great time, as much corruption and lies are being exposed. We need more people awake though.
INjoy either or both downloads, feel free to check out my other books and to share this.
Yes there is a book sale starting and I am inviting you!! 🙂
You probably don’t know that I have created and written 6 ebooks / kindle.
I know right??!!
From food to yoga to our souls!!
The first ones were Eating Healthy Made Easy (now Free0 and Raw and Vegan recipe books that are easy and tasty (& all in 1 book as well), when I was being a big foodie. The cool part is it got me back into Photography as I was creating food recipes for my blog. I also get featured in a few other books by other people because of some of the recipes.
Then I also created a Food & You – Choose You book, as I struggled for many years with such low self esteem and an eating disorder and these are some of the tools I used to overcome them and come back to more of me plus I also to use some of my photos again! 🙂
Did you know that an Eating Disorder has a recovery rate of less than 30%?
Then, when I did Yoga teacher training, which came at a very difficult time in my life, yet also ended up being the perfect time and helped me big time so I thought why not photograph a bunch of Yogi’s and find out Why (They) We Do Yoga – hence the name of the book. There are over 60 Yogi’s with 60 different whys ad you may be surprised at some of them!!
This year, I created A Story of Our Souls – an adult story book that has quantum physics, science, truth, fiction, a little woowoo and again some photos (ones that I could finally become more creative with!).
If you have already purchased A Story of Our Soul – it’s been updated, expanded and edited so re-upload on kindle or shoot me an email for the new e-book!
In my time of going thru the dark night of the ego I call it 🙂 I am allowing more and more creativity coming out. We are creative beings as our truth and when we learn to creatively express who we are – it’s way more fun!!
I have not been the best marketer I have to be honest. I don’t like those click funnels, give me your email address so I can drip on you, or hyping things. I actually did the books as I loved creating them and hoping they could help someone in some way or just be enjoyed. Yet, that can’t happen if I don’t at least share them, so I am now sharing them and for the next 4 days (Thurs thru to midnight Sun) all of my books are 25 – 40% off and some are even FREE……..all the ebooks and some of kindle as kindle has it’s own rules!
So, please feel free to buy one or many 🙂 and also share this post if you like the books and feel this is worth sharing – I would very much appreciate it!!
If you already have one, awesome and thank you, if you loved it then please shoot me a message or leave a review!
With Much Gratitude
PS – There are also some great FREE EFT books – from when I worked with clients and taught EFT, so make sure you grab some copies of those as EFT is a great resource for self healing!
I tried not adding anything else into my way of eating and ended up not feeling great, unfortunately we do need more as our soils don’t have the nutrients like they used to plus food is pick before it’s ripened then stored in warehouses then shipped – that takes a couple of months sometimes, so our food does not have all the nutrition like it could. Maybe if you are growing your own, but very few people do that.
There are so many health products out there, it’s overwhelming and confusing.
I must be honest, I get rather irritated when I hear ‘health’ product only to read the ingredients and at least a 1/4 of them are chemicals. Especially if someone is trying to sell me on it, some of the lame as excuses I get is astounding, yet there is money attached to it.
I have been using a great co, that is clean and pure – I try to do that as much as possible with what I put in and on my body – not perfect and no I am not anal – I also use intention and gratitude if I am at someone’s house for dinner as an example.
I have recently switched to a new co – Puratae.
Ease – only 1 product plus I don’t have to juice – saves time, money and mess, plus I don’t have my dehydrator currently and I don’t like to waste.
Taste – it’s very good, I’v drank a lot of swamp water in my days in the name of health and just can’t do it any more.
Price point – considering it’s one product, it’s priced well
It’s pure, clean, balanced and not much else if anything is needed.
Why am I sharing this?
As a creative, I can not do my best work if I am not feeling great, so I do my best to live well – adequate sleep, lots of water, real food, great people and doing things that bring me joy. I also try to be in a state of gratitude and a higher vibration as much as possible. Puratae helps greatly as it feeds the body at the core level and brings in balance.
I ike having balance in my life as it’s not always easy to have 🙂
So, I thought I would share why I am using Puratae – to me, its made my life easier – only 1 product, simple to make, tastes great and I am not spending $100 of in ‘supplements’ each month!
I love feeling as good as I can – my goal this year IS to see how good I can feel – yes food / nutrition play a big role, but also doing what I love to do, spending my days and time doing things that align totally with my heart and being!

Rise Above Emotional Eating so You Can Love Yourself Again
Ancient Rule of 21: if you do anything for 21 days in a row, it will be installed as a habit.
– Robin Sharma
We were ALL born pure, innocent and full of love – somewhere along the line the story got distorted!
The drug of choice for many, especially women, is food. Something every human needs, every single day. Thats what makes it harder to break free.
Along with that drug often comes constant self-criticizing, loathing, judging, and obsessing about what one ate, didn’t eat, body size, and shape. No matter how small the perceived imperfections, their importance becomes distorted.
Yes, media, advertising, parents, teachers, friends, or siblings may play a role in seeming to remind us that we aren’t good enough the way we are but it is we who buy into it, we who believe it.
It’s a disorder gone rampant. More than 91% of women dislike their bodies and themselves, many to a dangerous and debilitating extreme. 80% of 13-year-old girls have already tried dieting, and 95% of people with an eating disorder are between the ages of 12 and 25.
I know – I’ve been one of them.
The mental, emotional, and often times also physical, self-bondage is excruciating – yet many, myself included, hide it well from others.
It Can Seem Lonely – We Don’t Have to Live that Way!
21 Days Food and You is ALL about installing new ways of thinking and being and interrupting what you are doing or being now.
After my struggle with an eating disorder, that only in the last couple of years have I started sharing my story – I found ways in which to heal myself, find myself and return to self love – regular counselling did not nor never did work for me. I am not dissing it – it was just not for me.
I’ve done many things over the years to keep diving deeper within to find the real me, the hidden me, the wounded me so that I could come back to Self Love – which includes ALL of me without judgments and criticism – and hey I am not perfect.
When we let go of these programs that we think are us and running the show keeping us stuck in self destructive thinking and behaving – life gets better, we become lighter and freer.
In 21 Days I share tools and techniques that helped me – the great thing is you can redo it a often as you like – and it only gets better.
It’s a place to start.
Once you do – you will be happy that you did – it will open up new ways of thinking, feeling and even being yourself and others.
My wish for you is each day forward it only gets better – trust me – its’ worth it and so are you!!!
It takes courage to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.

Have you ever stopped and thought about what is real food?
This is a long post and at the end I have a little gift for you!
In this post I would like to share a different perspective on real food, it may stretch you a bit, but that is good isn’t it? It may help you to eliminate dieting for ever – that is good too isn’t it?
If may help you create a healthier living eating style with ease – that is good too isn’t it?
That is my hope!!
You may have be aware of or have heard that – Everything IS Energy. Well, it’s true.
Everything IS Energy.
Yes – EVERYTHING.
Our thoughts?? – Yup energy!
The table you sit at? – Yes
Our bodies? Yup those too
Food – why yes of course it is!
So IF Everything IS Energy, and it is, but don’t take my word for it – there are many Scientists and Quantum Physicists proving all of this, J why would one knowingly eat low vibing, fake, chemical laden foods?
I know – we are run by our taste buds and believe what the commercials on tv say – right? J
Energy has different vibrations which is really different frequencies.
An example would be a table – if you cut it open and put it under a microscope you will still find atoms and molecules moving around – hence much denser and slower but it’s energy. No matter with the item you will find the same thing just different density or frequency.
Our bodies are 99.99999% space – yet all of us are energy of varying degrees of vibration or frequencies. If we took all that away say in our hand, what would be left would be very very small hand as all the space is gone.
You’re probably thinking, ‘what does this have to do with food?’ Stay with me here!
Back to everything IS Energy – including our food. Even all the chemical concoctions labelled as food.
The diet industry has been lying to you.
Food manufacturers have been lying to you.
Labelling on much of the food is a lie too.
With all the mis-information, products, companies, opinions on the internet – it’s no wonder people are confused.
Lets go back to who we are. At the very core of our being we too are energy, we are consciousness or a Soul having a human experience. We come down and put on these body suits to create a life on planet earth.
Our bodies come from the sun and earth – everything we do we do for our bodies. We eat to fuel them, we work to house them, cloth them, we move them, etc
We are part of nature – we are electric and magnetic beings held together by sacred geometric forms that run on the power of the sun.
Yes the sun! You know all that sunblock – it’s not only full of toxic ingredients, killing the corral reef but also harming you. You skin is the biggest organ – so it’s absorbing all those toxins and then what you are eating is also being released out through your pores and if your diet is full of the chemical concoctions labelled as food and you go sit in the sun…….then well guess what it does?
Yup that c word comes out.
I am a freckly red head and I haven’t used sun block in over 6 years and have spent much time in the sun – never at mid day of course and never for hours on end and I don’t burn – anymore!
Me – in a raw restaurant in Sedona
Anyways, back to what is real food.
We eat the light energy from the sun in the form of food or we should be.
Read that again.
Photosynthesis is the transformation of visible light energy into consumable fuel – it’s being consumed for calories that creates heat aka energy once digested.
Where in packaged foods, fast foods or foods laden with chemicals (which by the way our foods now have over 10 000 chemicals) is there any sun light?
Isn’t it interesting that as more and more ‘food’ products have come available more and more sickness and obesity has too?
Labels have information on calories, fats, carbs etc but very little of it matters.
Food ingredients – 4 simple rules I go by IF I buy canned or packaged food
– Do I need to learn Swahili to say any ingredients?
– Can I pronounce all the words cause if not, changes are I don’t have a clue what it is?
– Do I have to carry a food dictionary around with me to figure out what an ingredient is?
– Does it have a shelf life longer than my dog’s life?
Keep it simple.
Real foods came from Mother Nature – why does man always feel he can do better? Or is it because of money and profit??
Real food either has no label as it’s fresh and from the earth or very few and real ingredients in it.
When we eat real foods that have been grown in the sun and in the earth then we are ingesting light energy and elements. The sun energy charges us up and the earth energy grounds us – both are needed for optimal health. They also bring a balance of positive and negative ions.
When our bodies are off – we get sick.
Real food is one of the base necessities for a healthy life. We are all different, have different bodies and different genetics but we all need real foods.
Even much of our water is dead. I have been playing with structured water – using my vitamix and magnets – I can taste and feel the difference in my water – it’s awesome!
Wanna go a little further down the rabbit hole?
Real Foods & Superfoods
I really believe that the movie the Matrix actually gave us some clues. Since everything IS energy which therefore carries a frequency which is a number sequence…..yup…….if we put something in our food – aka a chemical – it will alter the food as it’s a different (man made) number frequency – then when we eat it a couple of things happen – if it’s processed, packaged or fast food – the body actually doesn’t understand the vibe, the energy, the number frequency – hence the coding of numbers so it can’t utilize or digest it, so even though we are eating we aren’t feeding the body – hence why so many people are getting sick. Also because there is so many chemicals in our foods and many are addictive ones – you keep wanting or coming back for more as the body at a cellular level are still starving even though you might be full.
As I’ve always said – there is a difference between eating food (or chemical concoctions labelled as food) and feeding the body.
Some or well many of the food additives actually are coded so that they run programs in your mind and body – addiction, emotions and more – I know sound freaky yet its true.
It affects our DNA – which btw I am learning IS very important.
Raw Cashew Whip
Food is everywhere today and unfortunately it’s slowly killing many people.
My wish and hope is more and more people wake up to more of the big fat fucking lies the food industry has lead us to believe.
When one truly eats more real foods then the counting of calories, carbs etc doesn’t need to happen.
For some that struggle with emotional eating – I will be sharing some upcoming posts on that as well.
Food is suppose to be our energy and somehow it has become confusing, addictive, trendy, difficult, profitizing, manipulated and mostly dead.
One of the best ways to nurture yourself and body, to live easier, longer and with more vitality is to eat real foods!!
A I promised, I have a little gift for you – 2 of my books on Amazon are FREE to download today and tomorrow – Easy Raw or Vegan recipes – I hope you will download them BUT ever more so I hope you will use them and go on to create even more tasty healthy dishes and to keep eating real foods – so enjoy!!
Again the link to the Free books on Amazon Kindle is here – you can get the free kindle app in the store for any phone, iPad or computer.
I was going through my kindle and ebooks that I have on line and realized I had not added many photos – WTH?? So I have been updating them and they are ready with many more photos that I had and never added in. While I was going through many of the food photos I have I realized I still had recipes that I had not shared – this is one of them! (btw if you would like a free copy of one of my recipe books please reach out to me right now)
Anyone that knows me knows that with a good movie I love a bowl – and I mean a BIG bowl of Popcorn!!
I am a popcorn pig – there I said it!! 🙂
Now a days the one thing that is really important is to make sure the popcorn is Non-Gmo!!
Now Raw Popcorn really isn’t the same as just Popcorn but it is good and if you are wanting to have more raw foods or love Cauliflower then you will love it – yes Cauliflower!!
This recipe is simple, easy, fast and tasty – no measuring required!!
1 head (or any amount) of Cauliflower cut up into any size you would like
You can add in some Coconut oil if you like but not necessary – if you do slightly warm it so that it is melted and the rest will stick better
Spirulina (again optional)
any other tasty things you like on your popcorn
The easiest way I find of mixing it all together is to put it in a big freezer bag and shake it up together – or you can just put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them that way – whatever works best for you.
That’s it – seriously!!
Grab a good movie – by the way do you know about Gaia (not an affiliate link)- they have some amazing Conscious or Health related movies, Documentaries and more – get ready to expand your consciousness, health and open your eyes to real truths!!
It’s been quite awhile since I have done a recipe so thought it might be fun to create something simple, yet fresh, raw and oh so tasty – Jicama & Beet Salad.
Since being down in Mexico I have been eating so well. For me, I know the warmth, sunlight and fresh foods nurture my soul. There is an abundance of fresh foods down here besides just Tacos and Quesadillas!! lol
There are also many markets that happen happen several times a week in different locations where an abundance of not only fresh / raw foods, but tasty (from vendors) and organic. Usually more so where the gringos are yet so much great food.
I’ve been living off much Papaya, Pineapple, Figs, Avocados, Fresh Greens and yes I admit it fresh salsa and chips – locally made and non-gmo.
Fresh Organic Greens
I truly feel for many people that the environment makes a huge difference. I know for myself while living in Vancouver and it was damp and raining a lot it was harder for me to eat as much raw foods as I do now – my body wanted and needed some cooked foods like Quinoa and roasted veggies. Here I never think of that. In sharing that – when you eat clean, your body will let you know what it truly wants – honour that. There are too many people out there dictating that it has to be a certain way. Yes eat healthy but listen to YOUR body!!
Vegan, Gluten Free, Organic Foods
Energy is everything – if you are hating what you are eating and eating because you think you should or have been told to – you are actually doing more damage!!
The one thing that makes me kind of sad down here is the NA influence like Coca Cola is everywhere, and some other nasty treats yet isn’t it everywhere now unfortunately?? Corporate greed is all I can say on that one as it is not food – only chemical concoctions labelled as food and creates havoc in the body!!
Lots of Raw Cacao – Good for opening Pineal Gland, Kombucha & this Raw Sauerkraut is sooo good – she makes amazing stuff!
Anyways, off my soap box and on the recipe – which is simple and leaving it up to you to get your creativity flowing a bit!!
Jicama, Beets & Greens – Colorful Mexico
I love Jicama and Beets especially together.
This is a Raw and Vegan recipe.
The selection of organic greens at the market is incredible – the one table sells about 8 different kinds and you get to mix and match and filler bag.
I chopped them all up to mouth size and grated up the Jicama (which isn’t as sturdy as Beets to do so) and also Beets.
I also did a second dish of just Jicama and Beets chopped up together. I also finely chopped up Tumeric thinking the color would be cool (orange with the white and red but as we know beets take over!)
Jicama, Beets, Tumeric with Basil & Dill Dressing
I have been on a Basil kick lately as I have been getting it fresh from the market and it is sooo tasty with garlic of course.
So it’s like a Pesto but no nuts – lots of Basil, Garlic, cold pressed Olive Oil, pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt, I also added in a mixture of Sea Veggies (dried that I brought from Canada) and Irish Moss – good for collagen (trying to add it in more in my way of eating) but those two are optional.
Of course since being here once I put it on the salad or just the Jicama & Beet salad I also squeeze fresh Lime juice!
In the Jicama and Beet Salad I added in a bunch of Dill too. I let that one sit in the fridge for a couple of hours (ok while I went to the beach :)) to let the flavours marinate. Now you can use any herbs and I always find that fresh is smooch tastier and better.
It was a tasty delight.
The salad feel free to sprinkle on some toasted Sunflower seeds or Pecans or even add in Avocado and a sprinkle of Nutritional Yeast.
Jicama doesn’t get used often enough and is very mild tasting so really takes on flavours of there ingredients. Jicama is abundant down her in Mexico and has many vital nutrients and lots of fibre and probiotic role in the intestines.
Many people have asked me about how did we eat healthy while travelling?
If you’ve ever travelled in the USA (and Canada and probably many other places) you will find that it’s all the same restaurants whether sit down, fast food or in between. Has that ever made you wonder why it’s always the same places – you can see the signs on the highway.
I’ve always settled when I travelled but no more as I end up paying for it but ALSO my health is my #1 priority. When I got totally burnt out and needed to sleep like 12 hours plus a day, I will never go back to that. I know stress plays a huge role, but also what I put in my body AND mind.
It’s now my lifestyle and I won’t compromise – that is my choice and I have no judgment of what others do unless they are looking for solutions!
Fast processed foods are mostly chemical concoctions labelled as foods and we have been advertised to so much that we think it’s food. don’t ever settle or buy into the b.s!
When we stopped for gas I would go into the gas stations and some of them were like littlemini malls yet so full of crap – we wonder why obesity is at an all time high, high cholesterol, heart disease, food addictions, food allergies and so on.
We had many picnics somewhere off the highway when we had time and if we were limited we would pull into the rest area as we had our coolers with our foods.
At the same time that I share that – I have to admit I love making food and creating – I am all about creating whether it be in the kitchen, in photography, in new experiences, in art, new friendships – I love creating. I also get not everyone is like that.
What if you came better prepared? You brought a cooler with some food already made or healthier versions that you bought before you left?
There are soooo many great blogs on the internet now with truly healthy recipes – many that are easy to make. Yet if you truly don’t like that or have time, go buy a healthier version of things at the grocery store.
Here are some ideas:
Hummus (of course look for non-gmo) great with veggies or good crackers
Avocados – great on their own or easy to make a quick tasty gac – (next recipe I will post)
Fruit to snack on especially if it’s crunchy.
Raw nuts like Almonds or Cashews – mixed with Raisins (always make sure they are organic as grapes are highly sprayed),
Wraps – great to hide all kinds of veggies
Non-gmo natcho chips with fresh salsa
so many other things once you start looking – easy to get creative here
To some that may seem like extra work, or the thought of ‘Well I’m holidays so I’m not working or I”m going to eat whatever or………’
Life is short – whether you live to 65 or 95 years old – it goes fast. Why not live it feeling the best you can so that each day can be filled with great experiences.
I mean who likes being stuck in a bed or a chair due to an illness that could have been prevented.
“Take care of your body – it’s the only place you have to live!” – Jim Rohn
I really go on about food as I do know and believe the way we eat effects us greatly – if we are constantly taking in garbage then that effects us in how we feel, move and think.
That goes for thoughts too – more on that next time!!
Create a Life YOU Love!!
PS – I had some cool photos of places we stopped to eat and picnic and many were amazing places – I either lost the photos when my hard drive crashed or I just can’t find them yet on my back up…………you get the idea I hope though!
https://jodiburke.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/2016-10-29_0002.jpg9051200adminhttp://www.jodiburke.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/JB-logo-new3.pngadmin2016-10-30 23:55:542017-03-24 03:05:52Eating Healthy While Travelling
I know for many of us, markets could be a thing of the past with summer ending and well into fall!
I don’t know if you take the time to shop at markets or not but highly encourage you to do so.
I have been hearing from many people similar things like – ‘It must have been hard eating healthy while travelling?’
And the answer is NO!! (a post on that is coming soon too)
David and I live this lifestyle and it’s part of who we are. We don’t just do it when it’s convenient, or get sloppy about our health – as once you lose it, it is so hard to get back. And once you pass a certain point of eating, doing and being the health things you just can’t go back – basically you are awaken and you see the light and truth – there is no going back.
What does all that mean?
Many people think they are eating healthy because they shop at Whole Foods (watch this great video by the Health Ranger, it will open your eyes up and save you money!), or eat packaged foods labelled organic or gluten free, go to a yoga class several times a week, wear Lululemon and eat brunch on the weekend at the latest ‘in’ restaurant. Now I’m being fairly general yet trying to paint a picture -to some it’s part of being in the trend. To others it’s a lifestyle choice.
That type of scenario people are doing better than most, but many do it to look cool…….does one really understand true health, eating healthy, thinking / meditating and being true health and empowered?
Lots of colors!
What I am realizing is that it takes more than grabbing a juice at your favourite local bar (or off the shelf which to be honest is better than juices in general but for optimal nutrition – juice needs to be drank within an hour of it being pressed fyi for any optimal nutrition) or doing a couple of yoga classes a week – it’s not as much about the body or work out as it is a moving meditation where one takes the practice of non-judgment out in their every day world.
Amazing Food Artisans
Most packaged foods are still processed even if the ingredients are healthier or organic. Please don’t get me wrong, I eat them too, I am not up on a soap box here, real health still comes down to eating mostly real foods, raw and alive foods, natural foods that aren’t loaded with lead or sprayed with other poisonous things, and of course non-gmo, adding in superfoods, minerals (not isolated ones), eating high quality proteins (yet not too much) from conscious sources, just to name some things.
Which brings me back to markets – this is where we can eat healthier – as most of it is real food. We can get to choose how we spend our dollars, support local farmers, eat what is in season and enjoy the creativity of who is there with some of their healthy food creations (outside of farmers growing organic, non-com foods). Connecting with people that love what they do (for the most part) , you can tell the difference by tasting their goods.
A lot if not most of the food these days I am finding at the markets is organic – woohoo!!
While on our travels we got the privilege of catching a few markets in different states and they were all great. All different, yet similar in that they have fresh foods grown by people who love what they do – they have to as not many will grow their own gardens – many also can’t today that I realize.
So if you live in an area where you can visit a market year round – do so!!
And for the ones that maybe missed the market this year – there’s next year – you won’t be disappointed.
We sampled (and bought) some of the best food I’ve ever tasted from the markets we went to while travelling and yes we have a cooler and I will post on ways to eat healthier and to make it easier while travelling !
Have you ever really stopped and asked yourself ‘why do I eat?’
Is it for fun, entertainment or nourishment?
What do you eat?
By that I mean have you been programmed to eat according to what the Standard American Diet is – S.A.D………….hmmmmm and I wonder who is behind that one (as in marketing it), cause once you know or understand real health, real food, optimum nutrition its nothing but a lie.
Do you buy and eat what is advertised on tv or anywhere else?
Have you ever stopped and asked yourself who is behind that as well?? I mean do you feel, think or believe it’s for real health or profit?
Consider this – if it’s made in a plant don’t eat it or if it has a commercial don’t eat it?
What do you do when you eat? Do you sit down and limit your conversation so you can focus on chewing and what you are eating or do you gobble it up, talking intensively, are on your phone either talking, texting or surfing, watching tv or on your computer?
How do you even know what you’ve eaten, what it tastes like or when you are full?
Does it make a difference?
Try it for a few days even a week and you decide…………….it’s called Conscious Eating – or being fully present!!
Did you know that our made man foods these days (as in packaged foods) have over 10 000 chemicals in them, many which are addictive ones to keep you wanting more and coming back eating more – hence you are eating and get full but your body wants more, your body is hungry………ever experience that?
It’s because you are eating empty foods and your body is literally starving.
That is why eating real food is important to add in to your way of eating.
Eating a Delicious Raw Dish
We need to fuel and honour our bodies like we do the tv, computer, our nails, our clothes, our phones, our hair, our trucks or cars………they may be pretty or flashy or even expensive but if we don’t have our health or our bodies what good are they?
Some Food for Thought and yes pun intended!! 🙂
Create a Life YOU Love
and that includes Loving YOU too!!
Ps – While travelling around Florida we were in St Petersburg yesterday and found a quaint little Raw Vegan Restaurant – we don’t eat out often as we are picky and only want healthy, clean, vibrant, real food so we make our own almost always. But we decided to see what was in the area and take a chance – Oh my!!! Probably some of the best raw foods I have ever eaten so if you are in the area go to Leafy Greens Cafe – you will NOT be disappointed!!
This is the Marinated Portabella Mushroom with Brushetta Topping!
