Food Matters

Ok we finally have a movie that explains it very clearly why supermarket foods are not the best way to provide nutrition for our bodies. What I have found over the last 13 years is that, the food that we call food is not food. Not food you say? Well what’s the definition of food? “Any nutritious substance that contains or consists of essential body nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals, and is ingested and assimilated by an organism to produce energy, stimulate growth, and maintain life.” Would you say that most foods you purchase from the supermarket is nutritious? Fundamentally, the food you eat creates you on a very basic level, if you think about the food that nature provides in it’s natural state it is fresh, vibrant, colorful and whole, the processed food that many people eat today is lifeless, starchy and bland in color and flavor; come to think of it that’s why they need flavor enhancers, etc. If raw foods nourish and create you, which would you rather eat, natural raw organic whole foods or lifeless, starchy and bland stuff?

As we are nature and food is nature it makes sense that when we eat food in its natural raw state that it supports us, completely nourishes us and connects us deeply to our true self and the Most High. Make since right? Still not sure…let’s take a look at this very informative documentary film directed by James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch titled, “FOODMATTERS”. After watching it, comment below and let me know what you think.

Raw living foods graces our lives…

The other day someone asked me about eating raw food and they said “the raw food diet”.  When I think of raw foods, I think of it as a lifestyle.  When I hear “the raw food diet”, all that comes to mind is the diet pill advertisements promising you will loose 30 pounds in in 30 days or some other unrealistic weight loss promise.  While this may be true in a small percent of the cases, it’s often been documented that those same people gain the weight back and sometimes more weight than they had before.  With Yah’some living, it is all about a lifestyle of living a healthy vibrant life with good organic foods and clean living.  I first began to think more seriously about my health and what I was eating from reading the Bible.  God or “Yah” in Hebrew provided us with an abundant of foods to nourish and heal our bodies when we are sick.   Eating raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and micronutrient foods was more about a spiritual awakening  and gaining health then about loosing weight.  However, in the process of my spiritual discovery and separating myself to Yah or Yahwah, I lost a great deal of weight and I continue to do so without even trying.
