Don’t Just Eat…

Do you not know that your bodies are temples… 1 Corinthians 6:19

Food was once survival.  It was our nourishment and our medicine.  In these times, food has become a by product of itself.  Much of what is marketed to us is not food as it should be.  It is tainted with agrochemicalsmanipulated, processed, refined and stripped of nutrients, and it’s only job is to create a feeling.

That is not food.  Eat only those products, and still starve, because although you are “full”, you have had none of the nutrients you need to sustain a healthy, happy body.

Really Nourish speaks for real food, the kind you eat as well as the nourishment that comes from physical and spiritual exercise and feeding your mind.  The Good Book says that God will satisfy his children with long life.  The way you eat and treat your body will determine not only the length, but the quality of the life you live.  In the US, legislators don’t seem to care about that.

Their interest is instead the millions of dollars that are involved in the modern “food” industry and the inextricably linked health care and pharmaceutical behemoths.

It’s up to us to educate ourselves, to make better choices for ourselves and our family, and to teach our children how to make better choices NOW.

Next mealtime, don’t just eat, REALLY NOURISH YOURSELF!

Namaste
