Healthy Eating Tip #9

Practice Intermittent Fasting

Nature speaks to the idea that there is an ebb and flow to all creation. The sun rises; the sun sets. The seasons come; the seasons go. The tide comes in; the tide goes out. The waves crash on the shore; they gently recede.

Our bodies are made to embrace this same type of ebb and flow. We are to push into stress, and then pull back. Intermittent fasting fits very nicely into this model. There’s a time for plenty, and a time for fasting.

Healthy Eating Tip #8

Chillax and Enjoy Your Meal

It’s crucial to be in the right frame of mind in order to properly digest our meals, and to ingest the nutrients from our food. Any form of mental/emotional stress is detrimental to our assimilation of nutrients.

Eat Natural and Organic When Possible

Prior to WWII, all farmers were organic. They didn’t call it “organic,” they just called it “farming.”

Smart Hydration

Except for air, water is our most important nutrient. We can go for weeks without food, but we can only survive for a few days without water.

Let’s start off with talking about water quality. City water in the United States is mostly free from bacteria and parasites. However, the chlorine used to disinfect the water is very harmful.

So adding chlorine to the city water supply is a very good idea. Not removing it before we drink it is a very bad idea.
