Eating healthy and being on a diet like SCD and Paleo really has me thinking…. A lot.
I end up talking people’s ears off because I have so much information to share that I have learned through this process. So much information that 90% of humans don’t know about food or their bodies. Everything you eat affects you. If you are healthy, but eat whatever you want, being healthy, is not going to be forever. Whatever food you are eating molds your insides based on whatever you eat. Whether it be visible, painful, or not. Every single thing that passes your stomach changes your body in some way.
If you are eating healthy foods following SCD/Paleo or not, those green veggies are providing your bloodstream with some amazing oxygen to help fight infection. All that meat you are eating (without hormones and solutions added) are providing your muscle mass with great protein.
WHAT SOCIETY TEACHES
The food pyramid that we all learned in school really started this bad path to eating all the wrong foods. The food pyramid or “guide” for Paleo and SCD are so much more nourishing for our bodies. In my Goat’s Milk post, I posted about some facts about today’s dairy guidelines and the awful things that are allowed by the FDA to be in the Dairy Milk. Dairy Milk, the number one thing they want babies to start on and they recommend us all to have a glass or two a day. Ugh.
If you are not eating healthy and you eat what is easy, for example a frozen pizza, the preservatives and chemicals all have to be processed through your gut and your liver. Don’t you feel bad that you are doing that to your organs? Just because you can’t see the damage, you will feel the damage one day. Why do people set themselves up for that? Because they don’t know. Just like you and I didn’t know at one point. It’s the food society has come to know. Famous frozen pizza brands- I won’t mention it, but it’s supposed to be as good as, delivery, is rich and wealthy! Nut not the local farmer down the road with Free Range Chickens, who loves what he does and does it right, for the health of the people. This is all so backwards.
Every soda, the person behind me in the grocery store had in their cart, (4 -12 packs) plans to drink this week, hurts them. Maybe not this month, but maybe the last couple years of their life, or God forbid it leads to diabetes.
Eating easy and quick and cheap, isn’t the answer anymore. It never should have been the answer but we haven’t always known any better. Sadly, this is how society is setup. We eat what the grocery stores provide us.
MAKE THE CHANGE…NOW
To create change in our health and how long people are living, it’s time we eat food like it used to be. Fresh, natural, unprocessed. The price comparison to eating healthy is so misconceived. I’ve done the homework for my Meal Plans and I can tell you that in most instances it ends up cheaper or just the same. Not to mention the time. Easy healthy meals are possible! It is the amount of effort you want to put in. Being lazy with your health is the wrong place to be.
Please don’t forget the power of 1. Not everyone has resources to know they are only doing themselves harm. Help anyone you can to understand and offer them some alternatives. If you are reading my blog then you have a great sense of how food is affecting your body or the health of your loved one. And fact of the matter is, most of us that are not sick with an auto-immune disease, probably would never have discovered the effects of food on the body.
To health and happiness- Brittany
