This past week I had the great pleasure to listen to a very wise woman share her plight into traditional eating and the reason was her sick young daughter.
You see, most mothers (and fathers) become fierce momma or papa bears when our young are sick or ill, don’t we?
We want to find out what exactly is wrong and then do everything in our power to make them better.
I know I’ve done this over the years with my own daughters and now with my grandchildren. When they don’t feel well, we’re digging and fixing!
If you’re shopping for and consuming prepackaged and commercialized food products from your local grocery, you are consuming life robbing foods.
There is a list of 10 major life robbing foods that I’d like to share that you should NEVER eat and then I’ll share the list of life giving foods.
Foods you should NEVER EVER eat….
1. GMO Foods
(Corn, Soy, Sugar, Aspartame, Papaya, Canola Oil, Cotton Oil, Commercial Dairy, Zucchini, Yellow Squash)
2. Processed Meats
(Lunch meats, hotdogs, sausages, bacon)
3. Microwave Popcorn
4. Soft Drinks
5. Diet Beverages
6. Refined White Flours
7. Refined Sugars
8. Conventional “Dirty” Produce (see EWG’s Dirty Dozen listing here)
9. Farmed Salmon
10. Hydrogenated Oils (canola, shortening, vegetable oils)
(Most baked goods use these oils)
Whew….that’s a list isn’t it?
Now would you like the list of foods that are living giving and good for you? It’s my pleasure to present them!
1. Bone Broths
2. Raw Milk
5. Grass-fed Beef, Pork, Lamb
6. Pastured poultry (chicken, turkey)
7. Sourdough Bread
8. Pastured Eggs
9. Fresh fruits and veggies (preferably organic)
10. Soaked grains, nuts, seeds, beans
11. Fermented veggies, fruits and teas
Yum!!! This is the food items that I adore! When foods are properly grown, prepared and eaten, they give life and they taste absolutely delicious!
Often times in conversations, it comes about that “healthy” doesn’t taste good. Well, have I got news for you. When you eat the “life giving” foods I outlined above, your whole body sings, including your mouth!
Every cell is awakened and having a party and rejoicing! One of my clients recently shared how she’s feeling just after two weeks of consuming Kombucha (fermented tea) and Bone broths. The results are amazing and she’s seeing the proof.
Guess what else is amazing? She’s telling everyone that will listen. Why? Because when you’ve struggled with something like IBS for so long and you don’t have control over what your body does, and all of a sudden you are given a glimpse of normal and vibrant living, you feel fabulous, you look fabulous, people notice and you sing!
Isn’t it time to take back your health and your life? Do you feel doomed to just suffer through? Or perhaps you’ve tried so many things and nothing seems to work.
It really isn’t your fault. You just need a fresh start, some sound guidance, a good roadmap to follow to your destination, which is great health, energy, sound sleep, vibrant vitality and the feelings of being youthful and sexy again.
I really don’t believe we were put on this planet to suffer. We are created of a higher power and image and that image isn’t one of a broken down body that suffers needlessly.
