Do you think it’s not possible to change our life only by changing our nutrition? It has been said that everything we eat become us, in order word “We are what we eat” ~ Jean-Anthelme Brillat Savarin, said it first.
He could have not been more right about food quality. Good nourishment charges our body with good energy and allows all organs to function well. Fresh food and live food as fish caught today and ate today is the best food to give our body live energy.
Vegetables, which are the lowest in the scale of living things, are implanted in the native soil and feed from roots, thus need to be consumed fresh. Anything or method used to keep fresh highly perishable food, in the long run, will damage our body with diseases; when we are not well we become anxious, preoccupied and stresses out. Bad food affects even our humor and bad food includes frozen food as well. The majority of people have gotten accustomed to buy frozen food for convenience. If food must travel long way will lose freshness and energy our body needs to function like a clock.
That’s why I suggest to go to the farmer’s market every week and keep in the kitchen only fresh food needed for one week. With fresh food comes the understanding of time management and changes in daily habits. Once must know to put aside a certain amount of time to clean and cook fresh food, but that’s is a small commitment to ask in change of a good health. Eating fresh food will improve mood, increase mental clarity, physical stamina will translate into a desire to want to do things and willingness to change to a healthier life. Changing relationship with food will change a life!
My freezer is full of ice cream, bread I make every week, hand-made pasta and food I prepare from my small orchard that will serve me just right when I don’t have time to cook, but it’s the food I grow with my hands, without pesticides or chemicals and it has not been processed by anyone but me.
This saturday, I will go antiquing after the market and try to find some cheerful vintage posters for the kitchen. Color to me is everything. Perhaps I can help you too finding a food art poster that will inspire you to eat fresh and local food everyday. Happy Labor Day. Ciao,
