What are whole foods? Whole foods are plants that still posses all of its parts, as if it was freshly harvested. Whole foods are foods that haven’t been stripped of there nutrients and isn’t concentrated into one nutrient substance. Viagra for instance, is made up of a highly synthesized concentration of the amino acid arginine found in peanuts. You can save a lot of money by just going straight to the source, peanuts! Whole food nutrition should be the foundation of any person that has a deep desire to achieve and maintain optimal health. What happens when something is missing? Basically mayhem shines. Whenever something is missing in any equation things don’t work right. We literally start to fall apart(osteoporosis).
Our understanding of food has come a long way. For us to be able to recognize certain food chemicals is a great step but let us not get stuck on single nutrients- the whole is where it’s at. Unfinished business is exactly that, unfinished. Most of the foods we eat today are dealing in a lot of unfinished business. They make you full but don’t deliver the nutrients, so as a result people constantly eat. The body is furiously digging through foods to find what it really needs, hints the reason why people eat so much. They don’t supply cleansing fiber, so people suffer from severe constipation. Visceral Spillage is a term used for explaining the action of peoples guts hanging over there pants because they have so much crap backed up inside there stomach. This is far from ideal. If anything, foods today are actually doing bad business. We don’t function on one concentrated nutrient, we function on many nutrients, in the thousands!
There are many forms of calcium, many forms of other minerals, and vitamins and a whole array of other plant substances are needed to fully support us. The only way to receive all we need is through whole foods. I will leave you with a quote made famous by a greek scholar:
” Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
I know you’ve probably heard this famous statement by Hippocrates but a statement that is this good never gets old because it’s so true.
Whole foods are one of Gods great gifts for us to enjoy every day.
