Fruits and Vegetables - the real "Real thing"

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be the means to becoming enlightened in mind and body. Consuming real food, food that was grown from the earth is not just for sustenance, it’s a way to know God more intimately. Fruit is God’s candy. It’s actually designed to attract us, satisfy our taste buds and feed us the necessary macronutrients we need to sustain life.

Think about it this way, which came first, Cherry flavored coke, or cherries? Why settle for an imposter laden with chemicals that will hurt you, when you can have the original that is designed to help your skin stay soft, your teeth stay white and strong, your muscles regenerate and your brain work more efficiently?

Let’s call a spade a spade; laboratory created sugar is a drug. It actually hits the blood stream faster than heroine! It’s metabolized the instant it hits the tongue.

“In the twentieth century US tobacco companies altered the chemical composition of their products to increase consumption- creating life long customers by getting children addicted to specific brands of processed tobacco. Recent legislation has forced Big Tobacco to curb some of these activities, but they weren’t out of the game long. Now they have purchased major brands of addictive foods.” (Pilzner)

In other words, large multinational corporations actually pay scientists to create chemicals that will get you hooked for life, and it’s legal. There is a war waging for control of your taste buds, so be aware.

Think about it this way: how many apples, bananas or oranges could you eat in a row before feeling full? On the contrary how many cans of coke can some people consume in a day? Some of my clients claimed to consume 7 or even 8 cans (350-400 grams of “sugar”) each day before changing their behavioral habits.

“High Fructose Corn Syrup (the sweetener found in most sodas) is chemically altered not to register with your body once you have had enough. You feel the need to keep consuming, much like an addiction to cigarettes.” (Pilzner)

If you aren’t motivated by the health aspect, then consider the financial implications. Who would you rather be the recipient of your hard earned money, Coca-Cola or local, organic farms? Who do you think will be the best steward of your investment? Coca Cola is partly responsible for the cavities in our teeth and the toxins in our blood. Pesticide free farms are responsible for feeding our minds and bodies with delicious food that rejuvenates us from the inside out.

No matter how good science gets it will never be able to emulate the real, “real thing.”
