5 Things Spiritually Enlightened People Want to Know About Their Food
Did you know that what you eat is energetically tied to how your entire life is vibrating?
Food is energy.
You are energy.
So if you want to grow and evolve in all areas of your life, it only makes sense to eat foods that will support that.
Food not only nourishes the body but also provides:
• clearer skin
• a bullet-proof immune system
• getting rid of belly fat
• getting more muscle tone
In order to stay committed to your spiritually enlightened journey and get the most from your body, follow these five diet tips:
1. Eat More Omega-3s
People think they need to eat something complicated for healing to take place. What they don’t realize is that omega-3s, accessible at the grocery store, are healing for our bodies. Consume 3 teaspoons of flax meal per day. I keep flax meal in a salt shaker and sprinkle it on my food. Other sources of omega-3s are chia seeds and wild salmon.
If you are eating farmed salmon, it doesn’t necessarily contain omega-3s. The omega-3s come from the food the salmon eats in the ocean not the salmon itself. This is an important point a lot of people overlook.
2. Eat Lots of Greens
Everyone knows to eat lots of greens. What they don’t tend to realize is quite how vital they are because they are anti-inflammatory properties are very healing to our bodies.
Greens such as spinach and kale are very healing to our bodies. Consume 3 cups of leafy greens per day. This can be done in a green smoothie, salad, or chopped up in soups or stews. Change up the greens to give you a variety of vitamins and minerals.
3. Drink Lemon Water
Fresh lemon water is very kind to our digestive systems, especially when consumed first thing in the morning. Our bodies have been at rest sleeping all night and we need to be gentle to it when we wake up.
Start your day with a cup of hot water with at least one teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon. This is very soothing on your stomach, and because your stomach doesn’t have to “heat” the lemon water, it’s less work for your body to digest. Less work digesting means more energy that can be used for repairing, healing, and thriving.
4. Eat Whole Foods
Foods in their whole form are super easy for our bodies to recognize and digest. Assuming you don’t have a sensitivity or allergy to them, of course.
Our bodies cannot recognize processed foods. They often contain preservatives and chemicals and other items which are not even considered food. Because they are unrecognizable to our bodies, we cannot absorb them. Foods in their natural form, like fruit, veggies, nuts, and seeds, do not have labels on them. These are great foods because it automatically means you are not consuming toxins or preservatives. These foods are very ‘clean’, especially in the organic version.
5. Add Cultured Foods
These foods contain more probiotic than you could ever find in a supplement. Probiotics are great for healing your gut and healing your body. These include foods such as sauerkraut and fermented cucumbers.
Making your own fermented foods helps ensure you have an active probiotic. Store bought brands are often heated which can kill off the active probiotic. To repair your body, add 1/2 cup 3 times a day. For maintenance, you’ll need 1/4 cup.
