Real food is good for the body and makes us healthy. That is one reason why I become more dedicated to real food the more I learn about it and experience it.
I believe the world is rich with value. You don’t have to be a lay person to glorify God in your labor. A farmer can do so by growing good food; an artist, by creating beautiful works; a writer, by delving deep and being unwilling to settle for trite tropes when there are deeper and more meaningful matters at hand. Some are called to be teachers and preachers. Some are called to be artists and farmers. We are all called to glorify the Creator in our own ways.
When you select food to go in your mouth, you typically aren’t thinking about how that food will leave your body. When it comes to eating, the taste experience is only one facet if how the food makes you feel; the journey that food takes through your body has an impact that lasts much longer [...]
People who always have something to complain about annoy the crap out of me. The reason they are continually annoyed at life is not because they have a particularly annoying life, but because they are encountering their lives through a faulty paradigm. Sometimes I wish I could transfer telepathic understanding to them: “The root of the problem is not all of your problems, but you.”
McDonalds recently launched an advertising campaign titled “From Here. For You.” across Washington State to promote itself as a vendor of local food. You may have seen the billboards, with slogans like “Picked in Yakima, Dipped in Fircrest” (for apples dipped in caramel) or “Grown in Pasco, served in Tacoma” (for fries).
I had just switched from my regular OBGYN to a nurse practitioner that my friend recommended, and I scheduled a visit with my new medical professional to get her up-to-speed on my heath issues. My last doctor never seemed to have the time to listen to my concerns, and I could tell right away that my nurse practitioner was different. We had an hour to talk and get to know each other.
The farm is dirty. Food comes with the leaves attached. Bugs are crawling on things. It makes me very aware that we are not just eating vitamins and flavor, but real, living plants.
I love Etsy.com. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the site, it’s an online platform from which normal people can sell stuff they make or find; it’s like the mother of all craft fairs combined with the best finds from all thrift stores, globe-wide.
Deep within the earth, I take to the moist dark. In the secret places, I begin to unravel, to change. The shell is but a husk of my being; I am a fountain of life waiting to spring forth from near nothingness. All I know of the light is that it is warmth. I have no ears to hear. I have no eyes to see. I have no hands to feel. All I am is being.
There are too many diets out there to count. If you want to lose weight, be healthy, have young skin, or any other countless nutrition related goal, there is a diet out there that will give you a mantra on how to eat. Protein good. Carbs bad. These fats good. These fats bad. Exercise. Don’t stress out.
