We are what we eat. Simple as that. The less processed the food we consume, the healthier we are - just as Nature intended all along. There's been a severe disconnection within us as a society and Nature. We think we need to hold onto labels of the types of "diets" that we should follow in order to obtain health. Keto, vegetarian, paleo, vegan, WFPB, low carb... carbs are bad for us... carbs are good for us, fats are bad for us... fats are good for us, too much protein is bad for us, proteins are good for us... my head spins with all this confusion and disconnection and over thinking and doing when it comes to the most essential act we do for life and it has been laid out before our eyes this whole time. But we've lost sight.
Nature doesn't make mistakes. Nature provides the nourishment we need to survive within the climates we live in and the seasons we are going through.
A person may thrive as a vegan in a hot climate with plentiful naturally occurring "cooling" water based fruits and vegetables to prevent dehydration where as a person in a much colder climate may rely on heavy starch root-based "warming" vegetables that naturally are able to be stored throughout the long winter months because of their starch content and a heavier meat diet. The seasons work this way as well. Spring and summer provide more greenery and hydrating fruits and vegetables and fall is a time of harvest and preparation for the colder months. As we know, fall and winter are the periods where we pursue the animals we harvest to sustain us through the winter months. Naturally, this helps preserve the meat from warm weather decay.
Now a days we can rely on the food "systems" put in place and go to the grocery store & follow anything other then the diet Nature intends for us to follow in our current climate and season. But this is where the big disconnection lays. This is where a reliance on a system, a machine, on a blind faith that the food we buy in these systems have been obtained ethically, are healthy, are not contaminated, are not altered genetically, are not artificially induced - all in the name of profits. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
