How Do You Feel About What You’re Putting Into Your Body?
Posted Apr 03 2013 12:17am
I keep revisiting this topic because I feel that it’s an important one.
The other day I was talking with a friend about our food choices. He said to me that he was a “flexitarian”. I loved his concept so decided to put myself into that flexible little box too.
The more I travel the more I realise how super important it is to honor what my body is telling me to shift my diet too. In Peru my body asks for heavier more grounding foods – warming soups, spices, lots of heavy good fats – coconut oil, avocado, sacha inchi oil, along with fresh raw milk from a couple of cows that live across the road from me, free range organic eggs from a chicas garden brought to my door in a little woven basket, and bread baked that morning in my friends fire oven from locally grown organic produce. And of course lots of potato since there are 4,500 varieties of potato in Peru!!!!!!!!
In Bali, all my body wants is greens, fruits, juices and salads.. light and raw and vegan. Vegan because my body has asked for that and ethically because I don’t get a good feeling from how the local animals are treated here. It’ll all about honouring our body and honouring the land and the culture we’re in. More in the video…
