National Food Day
National Food Day is Wednesday, Oct 24, 2012. This is a day to celebrate food by spreading the idea of eating real. What is eating real? It is eating food that is nutrient and mineral rich which originates from pure sources enabling our overall health to be bolstered. Ie. Real.
Eating real is being mindful of what we are putting into our bodies and serving our families. For instance, a box of macaroni and cheese is not eating real. The cheese and the macaroni are not real, but a concoction of chemicals to create a taste.
Eating clean is the mindful search for food that is grown without herbicides, pesticides, fungicides. It is meat that has been raised naturally without growth hormones, unnatural diets or antibiotics. Why is this important? Fat cells become the storage center for all those –cides, hormones…toxins. We eat the meat which has the fat infused in it. (Large groupings of fat we can easily remove, most fat we cannot remove.) The fat has high concentrations of toxins in it then we put it into our bodies and guess what? Our bodies take the toxins and deal with the on-slot the best way it can, buy creating more fat. Or we eat –cide laden produce and a similar process occurs, locking the toxins into our fat cells.
Mindfulness of what we ingest is the goal of National Food Day. The food game has changed dramatically in the last 50 years. We need to be conscious of what those changes mean to our health. I am just learning, I feel like such a “young-un” in the process, thankfully I know how to research and ask a ton of questions.
